Did you purchase this unit new? If not, someone may have taken the unit apart and lost a small spring out of the antenna assembly. If you place the unit, display side down, with the antenna hinge away from you, there are two small phillips head screws on the right side. If you remove these screws, a small plastic endcap for the antenna assembly will come loose and the antenna can be removed. Where the endcap and the antenna are hinged together, there should be a small spring that puts tension on the antenna. If the spring is missing, the antenna will not remain in position.

Our tv worked fine last night and now at first it was really dark and now it is flipping. What do I do?

The loss of brightness is probably caused by degraded high-voltage internal to the set. This can be caused by an electrical "brownout" that will correct itself.
The flipping problem is due to a degraded vertical synchronization signal. First make sure you have a strong signal - no loose antenna/cable connections, etc. Assuming you have a strong signal (i.e., no "snow"), analog TVs sometimes have a so-called "secondary control" (labelled "Vertical Hold", "VH", "Vert", etc.)located on the rear of the set. If you are lucky you may have one and be able to adjust it and regain stability.
Old sets used analog components (which age with time and are somewhat heat-sensitive) to control the vertical sync. Modern TVs use digital signal processing techniques that need no such controls.
Probably need to take the set to a repairman, if you can find one.

Loss of signal after about 10 minn of time

If it happens around the same suburb the sattelite can't get to that area.

Or it is programmed for another location meaning : it wont display most of the places near you.

Or if its old it wasn't programmed with all the streets as new streets do get built alot.

Also this GPS is a pretty bad one as I am already dealing with 5 others They are all 660s and are the only GPS with problems.

Hope this helps - Josh
