1996 Toyota Camry. Need to replace broken antenna to get radio reception. Is this replaceable?


You can replace the whole assembly. It could be catered from junk yard, new Toyota parts store or car radio shops. After market antennas are also available which could be put to work after a little effort.

My out door TV antenna stopped receiving 1 of 8 channels, this station is 20 miles away, the station said they weren't having any problems transmitting, do I need to replace the ohms device?


Is the antenna digital? If not its analog. Most stations are going to digital HD and dropping analog. The other 7 are still broadcasting analog. Ask station if they are still broadcasting analog if antenna is digital. If no, do a rescan of stations in menu of tv. Let me know.

I took my 2006 Trailblazer through the car wash and the antenna broke off. I have replaced the antenna, antenna mount and cable that leads to the radio. If I'm in the bigger town where I live radio...


Did you replace the antennea with the EXACT same one,or did you get an aftermarket one ? Did you replace/reinstall the rubber/plasitic gasket that sit's under the base where the antennea mount's on the truck ? If you answered yes to ALL of these question's,then your problem lie's in the cable itself. Be sure that you have the CORRECT one (cable) because where the cable connect's to the antennea there can be no play (looseness) or you WON'T get the proper signal.

I am having very poor FM reception with my Bose Radio wave system. Is there an external antenna that can be attached?


The power cord is the antenna and it should be stretched out straight for best possible reception. You could experiment with re-orienting the Bose, too.

There is a threaded 75-ohm coaxial FM External connector. You could probably get a compatible FM antenna at an electronics store.

See the manual, Page 10

The FM antenna is insufficient. I there a way to improve reception? Another antenna that will fit?


To improve reception, use a 75 Ohm outdoor antenna instead of an indoor antenna. Disconnect the indoor antenna before replacing it with an outdoor antenna.

No gps signal on my tomtom one


Hello,

the antenna is the cause if the gps is not having signal or reception.

Check the antenna is broken or well fixed. If not, you will have to replace the antenna.

Take care.

Poor reception


Usually has to do with the antenna. Could be broken or loose whip, shield is broken underneath base. If the antenna checks out then you may need to have the radio calibrated or replaced.
