1 – Is the NO SIGNAL issue happening on just one TV?
CORRECT INPUT or SOURCE
If it is just one TV that is showing the NO SIGNAL…
-Be sure your TV is on the correct source or input as your CABLE or SAT BOX.
-Press the TV button on TV remote control to turn your TV ON.
-Press the INPUT button on your TV remote control.
-Cycle through all the inputs on your TV.
-Do this until you are on the INPUT your CABLE or SAT BOX is plugged into.
-You should then see the CABLE or SAT programming show on your TV.
HINT: Your TV will most likely list the TV INPUTS as: HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, VGA, Component 1, Component 2, and so on.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

2 – If you have your TV on the correct INPUT or SOURCE and you still see NO SIGNAL…
CABLE OR SAT BOX NEEDS RESET
-Remove or unplug the power cable from the Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep it unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the power cable back into your Cable or SAT set top box.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to power up, get the signal, and initialize.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

3 – If you have reset the Cable or SAT box and still have the NO SIGNAL…
UNPLUG THE CABLE GOING FROM THE TV TO YOUR CABLE OR SAT BOX
-Remove the HDMI cable or other cables from your Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep the cable unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the HDMI cable or other cables back in.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to get the signal and initialize.
HINT: Make sure all the cables that are connected to your Cable or SAT box and your TV are tight, undamaged, and secured.

4 – If all of your TVs are affected with the NO SIGNAL screen…
BE SURE THE COAX CABLES OR ETHERNET CABLES ARE SECURE or CABLE OR SAT IS DOWN TEMPORARILY
-Be sure to check the ones where the CABLE or SAT come into your home.
-Be sure ALL Ethernet and Coax cables are secure.
-Call your CABLE or SAT provider to see if there is an outage.
-Realign your Dish if you have SATELLITE.

CANT TUNE IN


You must connect an Antenna to use the AutoTune. A set of rabit-ears is sufficient for most areas: RE: the Digital (Free) TV singals are using the old UHF/VHF frequencies - so any antenna designed for Broadcast TV should work. Connect your antenna to the ANT/Cable connection then re-run the Auto-Tune again.

Is Clear-Cast TV micro antenna for free TV access a legitimate thing?


The advent of HD TV has allowed for a new round of hucksterism to occur in the TV antenna industry. The televison channel spectrum is the same as it always was but the signal modulation scheme employed now is "digital", which is for the better. Signal propagation is the same as it was and it is not necessary to buy a "digital" TV antenna unless you fidn it necessary to receive TV channels that have sprung up from new directions. VHF and UHF TV signals travel in straight lines and are the strongest when your receving antenna is "aimed" at the transmitter for that channel. Since transmitters are lcoarted all over the poalce, you can eoither use a mechanical antrenna rotator to position the antenna to aim the transmitter of choi ce or use multiple antennas aimed in various directions.

Genrally speaking, the "cheaper" antennas have fewer elements and are thereby less critical to aim. They have a broader beamwidth, so-to-speak, provideing less "gain" in a specific direction in favor or a larger average gain over a broader "angular displacement.

Digital TV signals are not prone to "ghosting" so an array of cheap antennas aimed in several directions will suffice to capture the digital TV signals in your local area. Amplifed antennas are poor substitutes for "real" (passive) antennas placed in attics or as high as possible outside. TV signals are blocked or absorbed by buildings, trees, and such and the signal intensity can vary with the weather and even when leaves are on the trees and when they are not. All your digital TV requires is enough signal in order to work. A small amplified antenna sitting atop your TV may work fine though the signasl is barely above the minimum threshold. When the weather grow wetter, that singal may be beleow threshold and you won't get that particular channel until there is less moisture in the air!
The same is ture, of course, for an antenna placed high up on the roof, but the odds are far better that it will work so much better than the tiny amplified antenna on the top of the television simply becaeu the TV suingal inside the house, at lower elevation, will be inherently weaker to begin with.

Hope this helps you decide.

I have a high definition digital TV have been tiring to get it to work with out having to get cabal but none of the antennas I have tried will work. I have been told i don't need a converter box by some...


Hello - Sure can, You do NOT need a converter box. The TV has digital tuners built in and all TV broadcasts are digital now.

You need to purchase and install an antenna based on how far you are from the actual broadcast towers and what kind of geography lies in between . Obviously I don't know where you live but for example; if you reside in a city where you are located within a few miles of the broadcast towers you could get by with an indoor rabbit ear antenna. Say you live in the suburbs of that city 10-20 miles away you could probably use a small attic or roof antenna. However, as in my case where I live approximately 35 miles away with some hills and buildings between me and the broadcast source I need to use a large roof antenna mounted on a tall mast.

The simplest way to find out what kind of antenna you need is to visit this LINK and use the "See Which TV Stations You Can Get on a Map" tool. This will give you a very good estimate of the antenna you need. Until then don't buy any more antennas.

When you get it setup right you will be very pleased. OTA (over the air) HD broadcasts are better in quaility than cable or satellite.

Enjoy and thanks for using Fix Ya

Only picking up one digital channel


digital air signals are weak and fussy. They are easily lost by having trees or large buildings in the way too.
The best thing to do is install a long range roof top antenna and re program the set. Be sure to aim the antenna correctly. if you cannot use a roof top antenna you can try the indoor digital antennas,but less likely to work consistently

Samsung hlp 4663w does not receive off air signal from roof antenna through antenna ports 1 or 2. Get cable signal just fine through same ports. Same antenna works fine on other tvs. Whats the problem and...


If you're in the US, you will no longer get antenna signals because the US has recently switched to digital. The TV you have does not have a digital tuner and you'll need to purchase a digital converter box that converts a band of analog signal to digital.

Since Texas went digital I am only getting some of the digital chanels. I have changed it to digital programming but they are not all coming through. What do I need to do?


we need more information:

1) Your city in Texas; so I can look up the stations and find what frequency's they are broadcasting their DTV on.

2) What kind of antenna do you have ?
VHF ? UHF ? Inside ? On the Roof ?

A couple things you can try:

- instead of having the TV AutoScan for channels, manually enter the channel for the TV stations not being received.

- call the TV station you're having trouble receiving: they will ask you where live, what kind of antenna you have etc..


but you really should have a 'roof mounted' antenna that is matched to youre reception needs.

Unclear TV pictures


Well what your problem is the antenna is not secured well enough to the roof. You really only have a couple options, you can secure the antenna better or just live with the fact that when it is windy your channels will be fuzzy.

I bought a 32" conia tv and i cant get good reception! i have bought a amplified antenna and a hd set top box and still no good reception. my other tv's in the smae spot have had no reception issues....


well it's the same as the days of old, the antenna has a range of reception. the further the sations antenna, the lager your antenna must be. just because you bought an amplified antenna does not mean you will receive the deep fringe station. also the antenna must be UHF and VHF to receive the broadcast in digital. most of the braodcasters have gone with the UHF band because it is more stable for the bandwith of digital broadcast. the UHF band is very directional as well, so you must be pointing to the broadcasters antenna. no set top antenna will work if you are further than 15 miles of the broadcasters antenna. the roof top UHF/VHF antenna with a preamp is the way to go. I have tested every compact antenna and unless you live in the city that the broadcast generates you will get no reception with these. terks are junk, and any small amplified antenna does not work if you are in low lying areas. roof top, roof top,.....ROOF TOP!!!!!

Digital channels


is the antenna a UHF/ VHF type? most of the broadcasters are broadcasting in UHF for the digital, also an antenna pre amp will help tune in those distant stations. you must point the antenna in the area of the signal. if you are able to pick up 35% of the singal or better, you will have a picture.
