I have a Samsung tv, model # LN32A550P3FXZA. I've been trying to hook up an antenna but so far can't get good reception. Could the problem possibly by my tv tuner? Too old or bad?

Sounds like you're in the fringe area of the antenna. Depending on how far you are from the broadcast antenna, You may have to increase the length of the pole that antenna is on or get an antenna that has a greater range in miles. Digital signals are real picky about antenna aim. If you have a long cable between the antenna and the TV, you might try an inline amplifier.

Antenna motor runs but antenna does not move ate

Hi Carl.,

If the antenna motor runs and the antenna does not move out, then there is something wrong inside the antenna unit. Replacing a fuse will not solve the problem. Change the antenna unit.

Good luck.

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.

My satellite reception drops out, and by tapping the unit signal is reconnected, happens about every 5 mins. it is easy to fix i had it repaired once 2 years ago, Garmin centre near me has moved? where...

I have seen this on the Quest units also. The problem is most likely in the flip up antenna connection. If you or know someone who is fairly comfortable in soldering small electronic connections it is a fairly easy fix. First, you can verify the problem is in fact the built in flip up antenna but connecting an external patch type antenna to the antenna port on the back. If the problem goes away, then the problem is definitely in the built in antenna.
If you lay the GPS display side down with the flip up antenna to your right, take a small phillips screwdriver and removed the two screws holding the endcap in place. Gently remove the endcap and CAREFULLY pull the antenna horizontally away from the GPS unit. Once you have done this, you can see the antenna is actually two pieces. With a small jewelers flat blade screwdriver, GENTLY pry in between where the two portions of the antenna shell meet and separate the two pieces of the antenna shell. Once this is done, it will expose the antenna circuit board and the small brass looking antenna connector. If the problem is in fact with the antenna connector, it may be loose or come loose in the process of prying the antenna shell apart. Use a low wattage soldering iron and solder the connector back in place being careful not to bridge the solder points. Reassemble the antenna and reinstall it on your GPS. Again, if you are not comfortable working with small electronic solder connections or don't have the proper equipment, get someone who is.

Just bought a house and moved in. I have plug the TV into the wall antenna socket and the TV comes up with the message 'weak or no signal' what could be the problem?

Hi, congratulation on your new house!

The problem is obviously from your antenna. The TV is not recieving any reception from the antenna and that is why it is displaying 'weak or no signal'.

Cross check your antenna connection and make sure the antenna wire is intact.

Also, most antenna's come with a booster. The booster makes reception from the antenna very strong and the TV would be clear.

Lastly, is this a new antenna or were you using it in your old house?

Please give me a feed back.

Yours sincerely.

You may need a stronger antenna or your neighbor may have only a VHF antenna and most of the digital channels are being broadcast over UHf. . First, though, check the antenna connection as if they are dirty, they may be lowering the signal strength (these are the connections at the antenna). Check for the angel to put the tv antenna at to pick up the most channels. Internal antenna work very poorly. I have been having no problem with my outdoor UHF/VHF antenna, it picks up the same amount of channels in analog and digital.

Antenna Power supply

First order of business is to check and see if the antenna is operating properly. If the wire in your harness is intended to power the antenna, connect 12 volts to this lead, and the antenna should go up (this needs to be done with the key in the ON or ACCY position). If the antenna does not go up, check the fusebox for a blown fuse. If the antenna does indeed go up, then you can scratch that off the list of possible problems and move on to the next step.

The Clarion should have a power input wire to keep the clock alive, and a power wire (normally of heavier guage) to actually power the radio. Make sure the radio operates when the key is in the ON or ACCY position. If the radio is operating, so far so good.

I'm kind of confused when you say there are two wires on the clarion... "power antenna turn-on" and "auto antenna". Are these both on the clarion? There should be a wire that constantly feeds the antenna with power (I would cal this one auto antenna). It should always be powered to 12 volts. The antenna should operate when the "antenna turn on" lead becomes 12 volts. Normally this ONLY happens when the clarion RADIO is on (ie: if you're listening to a CD, the antenna probably won't get activated).

After checking all this, if you're still having problems and if you haven't already done so, grab a DC volt meter and verify that the clarion power antenna turn on lead goes to 12 volts when you turn on the radio. If it does not, then there is an internal problem within the radio. If this lead IS going to 12 volts when it is supposed to and the antenna still isn't working, then my guess is that the antenna is malfunctioning.

Let me know what you find out... I'll keep looking at stuff from this end. Good luck.

Cb radio

When you asy that you have an swr meter, you are refering to an inline meter, not the one on the radio, correct? Have you set the SWR by the instructions of the inline meter (if that is what you have)? Have you made sure the antenna is mounted to the bracket with the white plastic washer in between the antenna and the top of the bracket? You have checked the antenna coax for a broken center conductor and for a center conductor shorted to shield with a multimeter? Check antenna bracket to ground with a multimeter?

Satellite radio antennas do tend to fail sometimes. In the early days of Sirius/XM they were made a lot better, but now I've had problems with them a lot more frequently. If the antenna is plugged in securely and it still shows the 'antenna' error code, you most likely need to replace your antenna. It is possible that something else along the antenna signal path is causing your problem - Sometimes the antenna connections in the dock or the receiver itself can cause the issue, but most likely it is the antenna.
