Reception of over the air signal depends on your location. Lack of reception does not indicate a defective product, but merely a weak transmission signal. Try moving the unit to another location, or connecting to cable, satellite, external or an indoor antenna

The delivery has been an issue. Along with others I placed my order at the end of September with a 3-4 week delivery noted. A week later the delivery was shown to be 2-3 weeks. About the time mine should have shipped I received an email stating December 2. This turned out to be the delivery date, including ground transportation from AZ. The frustration with deliveries probably should be directed at Haier. I'm guessing they had issues meeting ship dates. This is sad because this really is a nice little TV. (My TV was manufactured in October '08 so it doesn't appear to be an import issue.)
I set mine up in a few minutes. While the instructions are a bit thin, they do provide adequate step by step instructions for start-up. My set picked up all the local channels in analog and digital (HD and SD) using only the stick antennae supplied. This picture is fuzzy for the analog channels but, who cares? They're going away in a couple of months anyway. The digital pictures are clear and as is the sound. It's as good of an LCD picture as I've ever seen.
I purchased my set, as all others have, to replace a small portable analog set. My initial reason was to have a battery powered TV in the event of a power outage, seeing the set I will probably set it in my bedroom to catch the ends of shows in bed.
If I had to pick a negative, it's that the antennae, component and power plugs are in the sides of the TV instead of the back. All in all, a good product for a decent price.
Update: After a full charge the battery lasted about 2 hours. The stand-by light on the front of the unit will double as a battery charge indicator if the main power is turned off. The light will dim as the battery charges, going out completely when the battery has a full charge. While there is no battery meter, a low battery icon will flash on the screen when the battery is low.
I turn my unit off with the main power switch and it never loses it's programming, it even remembers the last channel watched. The reviewer complaining it has to be reprogammed must have had some other issue causing that problem.
I have not found how to delete channels that are found during auto-scan that I do not wish to watch; I don't know if this is even possible but will keep looking.
I've had the TV for about a week now and am very happy with the purchase.
Unless you a located within a few miles of the transmitter, the supplied telescopic omni-directional antenna is entirely inadequate. I couldn't get anything except badly degraded reception of NTSC signals off air. Digital HD signals are broadcast on a different frequency band. I had to buy an antenna designed for optimum reception of HD; even then, weaker signals caused the otherwise excellent HD pictures and sound to pixillate and distort. For off air HD reception, expect to pay another $40 to $75 for an antenna designed to receive HD digital transmissions.
In the end, I decided that my wife would be unhappy with the limited choices of off-air broadcasts and so I installed a signal splitter in the cable company's signal feed to her other television and connected the Haier HLT71 to the second output from the splitter.
Connecting the supplied rechargeable battery is fiddly. Be careful inserting the small white two-pin connector and use a wooden or plastic probe to push the connector home. The battery is a tight fit. Connect the power pack to the wall power outlet and insert the round connector into the left side of the unit. Slide the switch on the left side to "ON"; the remote control has no effect until this switch is in the "ON" position.
Once everything is connected, use the remote control to display the on-screen menu. Use the direction keys to select the satellite dish and then use the down-arrow key to select the ANTENNA option; select either AIR or CATV, depending on where you are getting your signal. Use the down-arrow key to select SCAN and initiate the scan sequence with the right-arrow key. With CATV, cable, you should only have to scan once. With AIR, you will likely need to rescan from time to time, especially if you move the antenna around. I noticed that the found-channel counter rolled over from 256 to 1 while scanning CATV, telling me that there is only an 8-bit counter for this function.
Finally, if you are using cable, the standard RG6 coaxial cable is stiff and unwieldy. I bought GE brand ultra thin video cable from Home Depot, Pt. No. AV23278, and used it to connect the unit to the RG6 cable via a female-to-female splice. It is a much better solution and the cable easily concealed.
Overall the Haier HLT71 appears to be a good television, as long as you are prepared to spend more money and effort to get the best performance. It can deliver stereo sound. It comes with a power adapter for the car, as well as an A/V cable with RCA plugs on each end for connection to your component entertainment system; you can select the A/V source from the remote control. It has a flip-out stand to keep it upright on a flat surface and there is a camera tripod mounting hole on the lower edge of the unit.
