Had the same problem with mine, so I took it apart and it turned out to be the internal Gears, they reach the max stop position and they jam up. You need to loosen the 4 main bolts, the bigger ones inside, just loosen them up enough to rotate the base by hand. At the same time they are loose and turning the base, you need to retighten them little by little. I found this centers and loosens the rotor base again. It worked for a year and a half, but then jammed up again. This time, it was the ball bearing just below the Gear cover. So I replaced it... had a hard time finding the little ******, but I did and it works fine so far. So you should be ok with just loosening it for now. Good Luck!!

My rooftop antenna has stopped receiving television signals. It happened after a severe electrical storm. Is there any way to repair it or even to determine what the problem is?


it is due to the disturbance of the wirres passig the signals a proper technician can definately clear the problem for you if you yourself want to try this is the option


You could always try an attic install if it doesn't work all you have to do is run the coax from the attic to the outside loacation.

I've got a attic antenna. I get 85-99% on all channels..

If that's vinyl sidding you can hide the cabling under it buy using a unzipping tool.

You can buy coaxial cable with gound wire attached. Just make sure you use a ground block if you don't the electricity may go down the coax.

My chanals on my tv won't work


try moving the antenna around as it is the most common problem where i reside and most of the time when people buy a new TV with an antenna, they have to set it up where it can catch proper network.............or if that doesn't work then i prefer that you take your TV to a technician to check out the fuses.

My philips 64p8342 doesn't turn off


It may be due to many reasons. 1.If your remote is not working or it's battery got over: But then not only the power button, but no buttons will work. 2. If your t.v receiver is faulty: Then also it should not obey any commands, not only power on/off command. So most probably, the power button of your remote is damaged. It may be an internal loose connection. It may happen if your remote has fallen down or anything similar. Get it repaired or have your remote replaced.

HDTV Converter hookup with sat. and antenna


Hi there Phil...... this switch from analog to digital has lots of folks scratching their heads. Fortunately I have some great news for you. The signal coming from the Dish network does not need a converter as it is already digital.

Switching from cable to antenna


Should be done with your remote. Go to menu and then setup. It should have a selection for cable or antenna.

Recently installed two Philco TB100HH9 Converter boxes. Both worked well at first then both lost a major local TV station within days and cannot reprogram it into the box. Have two other TV's without a...


I just had a similar problem with this box - For the first month or two, I got the local NBC affiliate (KING-5 in Seattle) just fine on 5.1, then, after fiddling with my antenna setup, I lost it completely - NOTHING I could do would get it back. I tried a bunch of stuff - Multiple types of antenna, adding an antenna amp box, a handful of "homebrew" antennas - Nada. Yet all my other channels came in fine (although a couple were right on the edge - This box seems to need a "17" or higher on the signal strength - Some of my channels were reading in the 15-18 range, and suffering the "blockies" and sound dropout)

After hitting TVfool.com, found out that the KING digital signal is actually broadcasting on channel 48. Punched in 48.1, and there it was, clear as a bell, using nothing but a "wick" antenna (Basically, strip 4-1/4 inches of the outer braid off one end of a piece of co-ax cable, leaving the center wire alone, then plug the other end into the box) getting me a 23 signal strength. But a second or two later, the box is displaying "5.1" - Weirdness...

Reconnected a near top-of-the-line Winegard Yagi/Log-periodic antenna - VERY directional, and has some gain all by itself - and the signal jumped above 50.

Still couldn't "channel-up/channel-down" or punch in "5.1" to tune it, though - Channel 5.x was a "dead zone" as far as the box was concerned.

Re-did the "autoscan", and now, it's back to normal - I can channel-up/channel-down to it at 5.1, or I can punch it in as 5.1, or I can punch it in as 48.1, and it's all good.

So, try re-doing the auto-scan. Worked for me...

Installed and setup RCA DTA800 digital converter. Ran a channel scan and did not pick up any channels. Have an outdoor antenna with an amplifier. Need advice.


Try bypassing your amplifier. I was getting an incomplete scan, and that solved the problem. I ran the scan without the amp in the line, then turned off the TV and converter and reconnected the amp.
