There should be no short between the conductor (core) and the shield (braid), especially if it is used to supply voltage. Please be careful.

Cannot tune in my 19 inch Alba tv to main channels ie bbc and itv


POOR AERIAL SIGNAL, CHECK THE COAX JACK IS ON PROPERLY. NO OUTER STRANDS OF WIRE SHOULD BE TOUCHING INNER COPPER CORE. OR CHANGE CABLE & GO INTO THE BACK OF A SKY BOX TO THE TV, THEN RESCAN.

Does the watt meter go in line on the coax.?


yes I normaly make a coax patch lead about 6 to 8 inch long and sit it on top of the radio, if your making your own lead make sure the braiding outer don't connect with your inner wire.

Fitted new 6000cd aerial to 04 reg Mondeo, cant get reception any ideas please.


Can only be the coax input to the radio. Often the fault is that the soldered end is faulty at either the radio or the aerial end. If you have a voltmeter, check for shorts by putting each cable to the inner and outer coax wires. They should not be touching. If they are and the two ends are clear of each other it is likely a cracked cable inside. The easiest fix is to just use 12V wire or coax - as long as the two coax plugs are connected to the inner and outer, you will get a connection the the aerial. If you are getting ZERO reception then it is likely the cable is shot. Even if the aerial isnt connected, the cable itself should act as an antenna.

I want to get a mono audio output from the TV audio sockets to combine the L&R channels to a magnetic loop amplifier. At present I only use the R channel) I want to keep the main sound as-is so that...


I assume you are taking an output from either the "Phono" or "Cinch" sockets on the TV.
There are leads available that combine left and right channels to one output. All you do is buy a Phone lead with the correct plugs on it. The lead will be a stereo lead. Cut the cable and join the screen/braided outer wired together. Connect the TV stereo inners together and you have a mono output. The TV has a buffer to ensure no damage is done to the sockets. If you want you can use a pair of 10k resistors in a "Y" configuration but as it is not a balanced amplifier input, it really doesn't matter.
Just use one of the plugs for your Induction Amplifier and you will get a mono signal on your loop that contains all of the audio information.
Hope that helps.

Got a new tv antenna installed the other day, rescanned the channels and can't get Channel 10 in Sydney, Ingleburn (yes, we do have television in Ingleburn)! Also, it rained on the weekend and ABC dropped...


With all antennas you MUST ensure that it is all OK, physically check, there are no whiskers of braid caught between Inner & Shield, Make sure the center pin IS contacting in the socket. Check The connections at the Antenna end. Check the earth braid. If you can check continuity with a meter, check for "Shorts" between braid & center conductor. make sure it is Pointed at the Transponder... even a little off will give signal loss. rain fade is a huge problem unfortunately.

Is ordinary coaxial cable suitable for a flat


Yes, normal co-axial cable is fine. Check the end piece of the aerial connector that goes into the TV, check there is no break in the cable or that the position of your aerial has moved off alignment. If you have wired the aerial connector yourself, ensure the outer earthing braid does not come into contact with the inner wire.

I cut the lead cable in half accidentally


Hi.

There wil be 2 inner cores and a screen which is an outer core that wraps around the 2 inner cores. The 2 inner cores should be different colours. All you need to do is strip the wires back and connect each of the cores together, for example a red and white core would connect red to red white to white.

The best way to do this is to use a soldering iron then tape around the individual cores ensuring that they don't touch.

For reference. 1 inner core is for the left ear, the other for the right, and the outer core is the common return.

I have a CXSGT08HP sony car stereo. It was installed by a friend at home. The memory does not work. Can you tell me which wire is the memory wire and were i need to hook it up to?

I’m attaching a wiring diagram which hopefully isreadable. I’ll also list the “where to”instructions for all of the other wires. It’simportant that several wiring steps be done in a particular order.

About the Memory Wire:

The memory wire is Yellow and should be connected to the +12 V power terminal (which isenergized at all times). First besure to connect the black ground (earth) lead to a metal surface of the car.

Important…
>>Before making connections, turn the stereo unit and carignition off to avoid short circuits.
>>Connect the yellow and red power input leads onlyafter all other leads have been connected.
>>The power antenna (aerial) control lead (blue)supplies +12 V DC when you turn on the tuner.


Hope this helps. Lemme know if you have more questions or would like me to email you acopy of the owner’s manual.

Thanks, and take care.

Gail :-)

>Notes
>>If there is no accessory position, connect to the+12 V power (battery) terminal which is energized at all times.
>>Be sure to connect the black ground (earth) lead toa metal surface of the car first.
>>When your car has a built-in FM/AM antenna (aerial)in the rear/side glass, see “Notes on the control and power supply leads.”

New aerial wont pick up digital reception and fuzzy picture on terrestrial channels


Hi.

If you put aerial up your self was it wide band aerial ?
Is it in the atic or on the roof ?
Have you used decent quality cable (not the cheap stuff)
How long is cable run from aerial ?
Have you checked that when you fitted rf plugs that none of the braid strands are touching solid copper inner core ?
Ask an earial installer or Tv shop what the signal strength is like in your area.
