Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems.
This TV won't work with an antenna anyways even if you did have the passcode because it has an Analog tuner per it's specs.
All "over the air" signals are Digital, so this set requires a DTV converter box connected between the Terk antenna and the set.
All you need to do in order to use a converter is to connect it to the AV or Component jacks on the set and then change the Input. Are you able to change the Input/Source on the TV?
Using the original RCA remote you will locate the INPUT button to change the Input over to AV or Component to get a DTV tuner to work on the set, and then the channel scan is done using the DTV tuner's included remote (so the passcode does not even come into play here).
A DTV tuner can be purchased for around $50 from Best Buy, or Radio Shack and is also available for purchase at the link below:
Again the reason for needing this, is that your TV's tuner is NTSC Analog and current signals are ATSC Digital.
If you need further assistance let me know. Also, please do click a 3-5 STAR rating for my efforts before you go. That is how I am credited for my efforts by the site. You can follow up any time as needed at no additional cost.
Do you need further assistance with this?
