In England it is about a quarter inch thick and is rated at 75 ohms (the thickness can vary slightly depending on the quality of the cable)

No snow just says to scan chanels . I have over and over


The TV signal is no good if it cannot find any channels. You will have to check the signal cable and its connections right back to the aerial. You may even need a better aerial or a signal booster. Digital TV needs the very best of all these or the picture just goes to porridge.

Hi, tv says no signal, have swapped out aerials set to australia dtv, still no signal. Please help.


what type of cable are you using because video av cable looks exactly like aerial coxial cable but electrically they are quite different.Also make sure impedance matches. cable on antenna , cable from wall to tv , aerial socket designed for same impedance.

if you are a long way from tv station transmitter a mast head amplifier would be employed. this could be another point of failure.

I have a lexuco tv that lost three channels ( SABC 1,SABC 3,E TV ) i've tried almost every settings but they don't seem to be having an effect it has a week being like that,somebody please help me


I have no direct idea but you could try a few things........
I assume you get these via an aerial, the first I know is obvious but are they on air in your area? then I would try feeding the TV via another aerial to see if this brings it back ( aerials and cables can decay and cause many curious effects to notch out signals) so if a second aerial works replace your original system.
The TV may have a skip option to jump/ignore some channels check on this, failing this factory reset or tune again and store. Also with previous point if TV small move to another location (next door or friends house).
Sorry best I can think of other than a service engineer ......

How do I get freeview on Sony bravia TV 42w815bsu 42"


If this model number is what I am seeing then it has an aerial socket so needs an aerial and then setup to tune it in, perhaps you do not have or allowed an aerial then its broadband and one of the companies that have TV feeds.
If its not what I think and an analogue thing then you need a "box" to do this feeding a video audio signal via another cable.
Without more info hard to give any other advice.........

Trying to get rid of motion interpolation on Bush LED TV


This is a sign of a weak signal being fed to the TV. Check the cable from your aerial/antenna is good, or your cable tv cable is good.

Tv with built-in digital tuner not receiving any channels


Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:http://www.stevelarkins.freeuk.com/freeview_digital_tv.htm
Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels.
This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard) signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial.
make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out.
The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable.
If you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these.
If the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the signal.
please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will only make it worse.
try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.

What plugs in where at the back of model 32AV633D Does single scart go to ext 1 or ext 2 Where does outside aerial plug in, there are so many ? Sorry but I'm a complete technophobe who is hopeless at...


If you have a cable box or freeview box, your main aerial lead plugs into the box. Then you connect a scart lead from your cable box/freeview box/ or dvr box to ext 1 on the tv. Where the aerial lead plugs into your cable/freeview/dvr box, there may be an aerial out socket too. You could connect a patch lead from the box to your tv as well so you have UHF direcy from your cable/freeview/dvr box to the TV as well as scart

By an aerial do you mean a converter?
For the neew TV's you don't need one. Just plug it in using A/V cable (yellow is video, red and white are audio). Be sure you take note of which input you are plugging it into on the TV, and then use your TV's remote to change the video input (usually will be labeled video or TV/Video on the remote) to the one you plugged the PS2 into.

No colour on television


Hi, It is possible that the reason for the black & white as well as lines across the screen is weak, defective or wrong oriented antenna. If you are hooked up to cable, then it should not be a problem as you can call for service; if on the other hand you are using aerial antenna, you can try to: reorient or adjust the direction to where the antenna is pointed until the reception improves, check the lead in wire (cable or flat) for any breaks or shorts or loose connection, check/clean the connection of the antenna elements to the cable/flat wire, replace your aerial/cable as may be deemed fit and needed. A couple of questions pls if the above does not solve your problem: when receiving from aerial, is the picture full vertically? are you also having problem with sound? If yes, where was the TV bought and where is it being used now? If no, is the image snowy and some channels/stations are better than the others? Good luck and pls post back how things turn up or further information. kind regards.

Snowy picture, no reception?


Hi, Your question "Do bigger TV's need an aerial booster or something?" - No, normally it should work straight out. Boosters are used for fringe location not bigger TV. Pls a questions and some ideas: 1. "TV worked fine the night before" was it hooked up to Cable or aerial? 2. If cable, it is necessary that you change the settings of the TV from cable to STD or Air or something like that. Normally this can be done via the remote, menu, setting, set-up; 3. If aerial, you would probably need the assistance of a qualified service personnel. Apparently something got loose inside the Philips TV, not a big problem because you can still receive (BBC 1) but not the other channels, possibly a loose wiring, a disconnected connector. 4. If you feel comfortable working on it yourself, unplug the tv and the aerial, open the back and poke around. Trace from the aerial jack, the lead wires used, the connector to the main circuitry. Wiggle the wires a bit for any loose connection. 5. If #4 is not to your liking or if you do not find anything or no significant improvement after closing it up and running it again, guess you're back to #3. Hope this gives you some idea. Lots of luck and kind regards from the Philippines.
