Does your antenna require a power source? If so make sure it is plugged in. You can try to reposition your antenna to ensure it is receiving signal. Check with a site Like AntennaWeb org to make sure that you live close enough to the broadcasters to receive signal.

SOURCE: Antenna Connection

There are a couple of t hings to consider that will affect your picture. There is more info needed to be sure but I will point you in the right direction.

First, I suggest you go to and click on the button labeled "Choose and Antenna." It will ask your address and about tall buildings or trees around your home. A chart will be produced to give you an idea of what stations you can receive depending on the strength of antenna you attach to the HDTV set.

Second, as Tech Jenkins pointed out without much explanation is that it is possible you may need a better and/or taller antenna to receive the stations you want to watch. Use your preferences against the chart in step one above and this should get you in the right direction.

Last, to make things easier, the industry has adopted a color codification of antennas to help compare one to another. These are the same colors that show in your chart referenced in step one. Don't worry about whether an antenna is marked as "HD" or not because it doesn't matter. An antenna simply pulls the waves out of the air within the allowed video bandwidth and sends them down a wire.

Good luck on your endeavor.

SOURCE: dont know how to channel search with remote

Do these steps using the remote: Power TV on. Press Input button and < or > to be sure you're looking at TV and not HDMI1 or something. Press Menu button and > to the 4th (I think) menu, where top two items are: Tuner Mode and Auto Scan. You ought to be able to start an auto scan with those. It takes a while, maybe ten minutes to finish, so be patient.

Well im not an expert on this but by wife keeps deleting channels... you can just go to setting and anything the reads channel search or digital search just run it or scan... your tv will scan all channels... make sure that your antenna is connected or digital receiver... when you tv searches it needs something connected to the input of the tv antenna... you can try goggling it too

My Tv no longer registers a signal from the antenna. I can see a picture thruogh my smart DVR and Chromecast but no pic with TV antenna. I bought a new antenna, still no signal.

Is the TV set to air or cable? It has to be set to air/antenna and a channel search has to be done first before a picture will show.

To ground the antenna you want to put a ground rod in the ground and use a copper braid strap between the antenna and the ground rod. Make sure no gas pipes or lines are in the area you are driving that ground rod into the ground. Put a couple round circles in the coax in a couple places too and make sure they stay. This will stop lightning from traveling into your home should there be a strike. You need to match that antenna to your radio. You want to hook an SWR/watt meter in line with your radio to get the best consistent reading. If you get a stronger signal with your CB on lower channels then I'm led to belive your antenna is to long. You really should put an SWR/watt meter in line to be sure of the SWR. If the SWR on channel 40 is higher than that on channel 1, your antenna is too long. If the SWR on channel 1 is higher than that on channel 40, your antenna is too short. Adjust the tuning coils according to your findings.

if it has freeview built in its usually programmes itself try turning it on and go into the menu and there should be an auto tune function hit that and it should tune up but remember it needs to be connected to an aerial if it still says no signal try moving the aerial, getting a booster for the aerial they usually plug into the mains then into the back of your tv and you plug your aerial into that to boost the frequencey if that doesn't work then you might need to think about getting a new aerial but you can get 1 for under £30

sounds like you need to rescan for channels, Should be in settings menu then maybe channels, Normally autoscan or channel update, Also make sure your airiel is good.

Tv will not recognise an antenna

Try to search for the channels using the antenna directly into the TV (remove the splitter) if you can pick up all the channels, then there is a problem with the splitter, if you still can't get anything, then most likely the tuner in the TV will be at fault.

Goodmans GTV69RFDT Television had all freeview now only getting 3 channels

First ensure that the TV input is set on the Freeview channels, just in case.

Then check the antenna, when Freeview does not get all channels, it is always the aerial (antenna).

Many areas in UK have still poor reception. If you use an internal antenna, go to Argos or Currys and buy an amplified antenna for freeview, that will improve the signal.
