I purchased a TV months ago (Samsung UA-24J4100 24" Multi

I purchased a TV months ago (Samsung UA-24J4100 24" Multi System HD Slim LED TV) but cannot receive any channels. The TV came from Africa, and I live in South Florida. Maybe there is some converter required to make the TV work in the United States?JA: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?Customer: It was new when I bought it July 22 2016. I take it out of storage every few weeks and power it up, but no joy...JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: It works ok for other inputs, such as a video game console, but does not work if Antenna is the input.JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: It never worked for Antenna input (came this way from the vendor in Africa)JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: I bought this TV on Amazon, apparently the first person in the United States to do so. There were no customer reviews of the product, so I am not sure if this device is intended to function in the United States.
