A digital television adapter (DTA), or digital-to-analog converter [set-top box], or commonly known as a converter box, it is a television tuner that receives a digital television (DTV) transmission, and converts the digital signal into an analog signal that can be received and displayed on an analog television set. It may refer to over-the-air broadcast television signals received by an television antenna, or to cable TV systems which switched to digital cable. It normally does not refer to satellite TV, which has always required a set-top box either to operate the big satellite dish, or to be the integrated receiver/decoder (IRD) in the case of direct-broadcast satellites (DBS).

In North America, these ATSC tuner boxes convert from ATSC to NTSC, while in most of Europe and other places such as Australia, they convert from Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) to PAL. Because the DTV transition did nothing to reduce the number of broadcast television system standards (and in fact further balkanized it), and due to varying frequency allocations and bandplans, there are many other combinations specific to other countries.

You have an analog TV, meaning that the tuner in your TV is analog only. You must buy a digital converter to see broadcast Digital TV via your external antenna and it will be attached to the antenna input jack or other jack depending on how it comes out of the converter.

One bit of advice, there is no such thing as a "digital" antenna, they are all analog. Even a 50 year old, outside antenna aerial that you see out in the countryside will pick up the new Digital Broadcasts to be converted by a Digital Converter and displayed on a 50 year old TV.

I had the same problem with my Polaroid FLM-3232 after having it for about 5 years the sound was just gone one day. I ended up purchasing a vizio sound bar and I have been pleased with the results. The sound bar is much better quality than the TV's audio ever had by itself.

i want to disable my internal speaker on my polaroid 3232 tv also---did you find out how to as yet?

Polaroid... | 89 views | 0 helpful votes


few and far between as some of these sets were never meant to be fixed----Try three things: 1 is Ebay has literallly thousands of boards for sale used. 2. Google the model number with "parts". Look at places like ShopJimmy.com which number 2 may lead you to.

Good hunting---Google with key words.

If its a LCD set you might want to Google the model number and see what it uses for back lights inside---if they are out or very dim this could be the issue--some sets have them and some do not.

If this one has them and they are dim/not lit either the voltage source going to them is gone or the lights themselves are bad.

Try turning it off and on or pull the plug out and leave it an hour

Hello!
The quick fix is: go to "setup" portion of menu and change "digital SPDIF stream out" you will have a 3 options: off, PCM, Dolby Digital. The one of those should clear you sound. If not, you may need to replace(rebuild) TV's main board. I will be able to help you with that.
Good luck,
Alex.

The TV should not change the channel by itself unless you disconnect it and even then it would have to be disconnected for a very long time. Try reseting the TV to its original factory settings.
