Hello, What else have you done besides just connecting the antenna?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
NOTHING IT WAS CONNECTED TO CABLE BUT THAT WAS DISCONNECTED
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago
Okay, you need to go into the settings on the TV, CHANGE it to Antenna from Cable in the MENU, and then run a channel scan. In order to find you specific directions, I need you to check that model number off the back of the TV, as it's not valid (shows up in no searches).

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the TV. The numbers 32HF7543137, 32HF7543/7 and 32HF754/37 are all reported back as non-valid Philips product.Still but dependent on the actual model number; a possibility is that this model may not be capable of HDTV / digital television (DTV) television channels of North America or simply known as ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) signals....orIt may need a special setup remote control (for those locked in hotel or commercial mode) for programming from cable to antenna.

the correct Model is 32HF754/37 Ithe serial number which is YA1A0613005005 I also supplied you IF IT NEEDS A SPECIAL REMOTE CONTROL HOW CAN YOU TELL
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
IT WORKS WELL WITH CABLE AS I PROGRAMS IMMEDIATELY AND IF IT IS NOT A PHILLIPS PRODUCT WHY DOES IT STATE SUCH
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ALSO IF THE model may not be capable of HDTV / digital television (DTV) television channels of North America or simply known as ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) signals.WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST IN ORDER TO GET REGULAR T V
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
If not a Philips, then possibly a Magnavox or a rebranded Funai.If not ATSC capable, then the simplest solution to implement is a DTA (digital-to-analog) converter; i.e. an add-on device that does the receiving of the ATSC signals and convert it into Audio/Video signals to be fed to the TV's Video IN and Audio IN jacks.Please click HERE.

YOU ARE SAYING "IF NOT A PHILIPS" IT STATES IT IS A PHILIPS WOULD YOU NOT KNOW I GAVE YOU THE SERIAL NO. ALSO ARE YOU A PHILIPS TECH. WOULD NOT A TECH KNOW. ARE THERE OTHER IDENTIFICATIONS ON THE BACK OF THE T V THAT WILL STATE THE NAME BRAND WHAT OTHER SIGNS ON THE BACK OF THE TV THAT WILL STATE WHAT BRAND IT IS YOUR ANSWERS ARE NOT HELPFUL
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Might the model number be 32HF7543/37?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
YES I STATED THAT ON TWO OCASSIONS
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 1 year ago
Unfortunately no; please review the above posts. The models number provided were:32HF7543137;32hf7543137;32HF7543/7;32HF754/37 twice.none 32HF7543/37.Perhaps it would be best that I re-open the question as I would rather opt out.Still, good luck with the TV.

Hi there,The indoor antenna may not be strong enough - try using a signal booster attached to the antenna and let me know if that works:http://www.amazon.com/Channel-Master-Distribution-Amplifier-Antenna/dp/B001PI09SEPete.24 April 2016 09:53
