    This portable tv from RCA has a good clear picture and an intuitive design. When setting it up though you might get a blue screen with the no/week signal message. To remedy this first power the tv on and then press menu. Scroll over to the magnifying glass icon and make sure it is set to receive signal over the air instead of "catv". Second, allow it to auto scan for channels to program what is available in your area. Finally, if you live in a marginal signal area a more robust antenna than the one that ships with the unit will pull in many more stations and boost the existing stations' signal strength considerably. Hope this helps!

    Log onto this before purchase, http://www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps/ input your address or zip code and it will give you the digital stations and their signal strength for you. We have 11 strong stations at our hunting camp 50 miles from the nearest large town. Great value for the money. $60 on line, use ship to store, otherwise $80 at the store. Great Deal.

    This TV almost went back to the store because no matter what I did I couldn't get any signal..then I started reading all of the reviews and the one that told me to go to the menu / magnifying glass / cable or air and I switched it to air I was able to pull in seven stations and I am in the middle of a Grain Elevator in an office. Very clear picture with just the antenna that came with it!

    • If you have a adapter converter and if you're not in motion. If you have it charged then you don't have to worry about a converter. But it's good to have one anyway IMO.

    • The Signals will not recieve in a "Moving" vehicle.
      by ArletteMW
      Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)
    • No, unless you aren't moving. Antenna signals vary by location, the signal gets stronger or weaker depending on the location of the tower it gets it's signal from. Channels also change from tower to tower.

    • Yep, same for me. You have to buy an external amplified antenna. I purchased an RCA amplified antenna at WalMart for $35. and it received about half the local stations.

    • Is your antenna hook to the TV? Try moving it around or maybe using a larger antenna.

    • I am assuming you are using the supplied antenna. Try going to setup, set to air and do a channel search. If this doesn't work or you have tried this, try a set of rabbitt ear antennas. Hope this helps.

    • GO OUT ONLINE OR A STORE AND GET AN ANTENNA THAT YOU CAN UPGRADE THE UNIT AND BE ON THE SIDE OF A WINDOW INSIDE YOUR HOUSE IN THE DIRECTION OF THE BROADCASTING SIGNAL AND YOU SHOULD PICK UP SIGNALS OK WITHIN 25 MILES AND BROADCASTING TOWER.

    • First, make sure if the setup (from the menu) indicates wither you are using the antenna or cable). Then make sure you run the channel scan for the mode you are in. If you are intent on using it as a portable TV, you can try and purchase a better quality set of rabbit ears. But I would take the TV along to the store, ask the clerk if you can try the rabbit ears -- even walking to the parking lot if necessary -- and be prepared to return the rabbit ears on the spot if they don't make a difference. Otherwise, you need to connect to a good antenna you would use for a regular TV or to basic cable.

    • If you have that kind of converter because it comes with wall charge plug. My fiance' bought a converter that you can plug a wall plug into and the other end is car adapter.

    • Yes if you have the connector. You just have to make sure to let the tv scan for the local stations in the area you are parked.

    • Yes, as long as your on top of a hill so you have a clear line of sight of the broadcast tower. No trees in the way... I tried many antenna's with poor results. It has no extras at all. The sound and picture quality is very poor. I had to return mine.

    • The input voltage is 12 volt, so you sould be able to find a cigarette lighter plug that has the right connector to plug into the TV. It draws 1 amp.
