If all other stations are normal, then I believe that it is a problem with the station broadcast or the feed from your TV provider. I don't think you have anything to worry about on your end. It will most likely be all back to normal by the time you see this solution.

Can't get the antenna to pick up the local channels


Hi Leslie, since you didn't disclose the brand or model name and number to the antenna you are using, I'll do my best to help you with your dilemma.

1.) double check your physical (wire) input connections
2.) make sure you have selected the proper input from you t.v.'s menu screen

HDTV aerial (outdoor mast) antennas are your best investment to receive free air wave digital transmissions...as opposed to the smaller indoor antennas...and the clarity is phenomenal; it cannot be matched by cable or satellite signals that compresses and decompresses the audio and video signal.

Why? Because, digital t.v signals are line-of-sight signals; meaning they need an unobstructed path between the sending source (t.v. station transmitter) tower and the receiving (home) antenna.

Hills, trees, walls, buildings, and any other obstruction- bends, deflects and weakens the signal as it is...placing an HDTV antenna in an attic weakens the signal by at least a 1/2...

So, if you are using an Indoor omnidirectional antenna at the set; the signal will be even weaker...it won't be good enough to pick up the digital signal that requires an accurate line-of-sight reception (just like satellite dishes.)

As a side note: I had an outdoor HDTV mast installed professionally; including signal filter and signal booster- [they'll know the proper type antenna to use for your area (see http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/dtvmaps/ for more details.)] And it was so worth it; whenever we have storms that knocks out cable power, we rely on the air-wave stations...and their sub-stations, lots of choices; and it's phenomenally clear...much clearer than cable or satellite signals can ever be.

As a matter-of-fact, we watch our local news and entertainment stations normally via our antenna rather than our cable service provider's system for that very reason of clarity and detail. Too bad we couldn't get the quality "pay for" stations that way, too - we'd drop our cable service and save a lot of money! :)

I don't have signal on my tv and there are no program's to watch as they are all blank. Is just a brand new tv I bought like 2 days ago


What make and model of TV do you have? What is your signal source (OTA (indoor or outdoor antenna), cable, satellite)? How is the TV connected to the source?

The model is important since some "TVs" are actually only monitors and do not have tuners. Then you need to connect to a set top box to watch anything.

Assuming the TV has an ATSC (digital) tuner for OTA, check that your antenna is pointed in the correct direction for the stations in your area. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to identify the direction. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and gives a very conservative list of stations. TVfool tells you the type of antenna needed to get any station (assuming no trees or tall buildings that might block the signal). Depending on your TV, you will need to enter the menu in order to correctly set the incoming signal type and scan for channels. Digital signals are either enough for the tuner to interpret or not available. If your signal is split between several TVs you may need an amplifier to get enough signal. Sometimes, the amplifier may fail and filter out all stations in certain frequencies. (Older TVs often only had a NTSC tuner; there are very few NTSC stations still broadcasting. They are low-power and thus you may not be able to watch them if they are far away.)

If you have cable without a box, which type of cable signal is coming in? Digital cable is QAM and not all TVs have a clearQAM tuner (that reads the unencrypted signal).

If you are using a set top box, make sure to set the TV to the correct input (HDMI, component video, composite video, coax and the correct number if there are multiple inputs). Make sure that the box is also on. If the set top box requires the TV to be set to a specific channel (3,4,60), make sure to go to that channel.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(For the US, the digital OTA tuner is ATSC and QAM for cable. In other countries, different signal formats are used.)

Without connecting the aeriel to the labgear i get 77 tv channels and some music channels but when i put it through the labgear i only get 21 tv channels why am i losing my signal i have put a annuater in...


An attenuator reduces all signals. Attenuators are often used when you are close to a transmitter that causes interference to other stations. By knocking the signals down, the strong signal is less likely to interfere with the other stations, while the other station's signals will be reduced too - many can now be tuned and viewed. This comes with the risk that some stations that had a signal that was just over the threshold of being tuned and watched no longer have a signal level that passes through the attenuator. This is what is happening in your situation.

Determine if you can watch stations you like without the attenuator. If so, do not reinstall it. If you find that some of the stations are being interfered with by another station - see if you can change the amount of attenuation in the device. Some attenuators are adjustable and make this easy to do. If yours is not adjustable, you might consider purchasing an adjustable type - as the one you have is not suitable.

Lastly, consider installing a rotatable antenna. This will allow you to aim the antenna directly at the broadcaster's antenna - allowing you to reject signals not in the same direction. This should reduce your interference from other strong signals that originate from a different direction. This will also increase the signal strength from all transmitters as you can point your antenna directly as the antenna - instead of capturing signals from the side or back of your antenna.

I hope this helps and good luck! please rate my reply. thank you.

The picture is distorted by both vertical and horizontal lines (different colors; pixelated)


A distorted picture display soon after the Plasma TV is powered on has two indications. First, a picture display of pixels when the TV is powered on is usual prior to signals of video movies are acquired from broadcasting station. The movie from braodcasting station should display without noticeable objects of distractions. For example, the movie displeyed on the TV without obstructions is indication that the problem is from the display set. Alternately, movies with poor capability to display on the set is indication that the media from which motion pictures are acquire from is malfucntioning. For example, a TV connected to cable network or disk network or satellite broadcasted signals with receptive compromises are diagnosable from two areas. First, a clarification from the network station that has setup connectivity of devices. Perhaps a device in the setup is malfucntioning. Second, attempting the adjust the phsical connections that are attached to the TV is capable of resoving the problem. Refer to the user guide for what is default expectation on powering on. Thereafter consul technical experts if required. Good luck

My Olevia 27in. LCD Television does not turn on


Well, at least the standby 5vdc circuit is still working but the problem can be in the controller board is not sending the signal to turn on the main power supply sections, or the power supply itself is bad. Look at the power supply first for burnt parts, bad capacitors.

My philips lcd digital tv says I am recieveing analog signals from a digital direct tv sat. How do I get my tv to change to accept digital signals?


First verify that the direct TV satellite box is set to receive and display digital stations. If you old set on the sat was analog, the box may not have been reset. You may have to contact you satellite provider. Next you will have to go to the TV menu and auto program/scan in the stations. This should pick up all the stations.
