If your not sure what to do at this point you probably should stop right here, however if your bold enough to try this, remove the back cover, I believe there are 6 (six) screws in total, there is also a small metal contact that touches the main circuit board on the back side, that also connects to the antenna, most often a springy piece of gold plated metal attached to a solid threaded nut, where the antenna is attached that fits snugly into the back cover of the phone when the cover is installed the nut is secured and won't fall out. This contact could be on the nut or on the main board if you bent it out a bit to make better contact, you will most likely fix your phone. Cheers!

Just because you added them don't mean that they are available or broadcasting. First of all where are you getting the signal from. Cable or over the air (antenna) ? If you are receiving over air free TV you may not have a strong enough signal. The best way to add channels is to do a scan and let your TV find them automatically. For over air broadcast sometimes your TV will find channels that are not quite a strong enough signal to play depending on your location from the the station transmitter. Note that relocating the receiving antenna or getting a better one will usually fix this problem.
Now if your receiving Cable then you have another issue.
The only channels that you will be able to receive directly with your TV is the ones that come with the basic service the rest will be scrambled and will require that you pay a subscription an be connected through one of there box's which contains the descrambler that can turn on or off from the cable company office.
Hope this helps.

not something that your service provider will fix just because you want
them to. It must be justifiably cost effective for them to put up new
towers, which will ultimately be criticized by cities, home owners
associations, etc. Most users think there is nothing they can do to
improve their cell phone reception by themselves. This is most
certainly untrue, and the following will explain what you can do to
ensure great mobile coverage without waiting for a new tower to
Your cell phone uses a lot more power when connecting a call than when
it is on standby. Often, your battery can be strong enough to attempt a
call, but not strong enough to find a signal. If you find you are
having signal problems, try to keep your battery charged to 2 bars or

Buildings and other large structures are very unfriendly to cell phone
signal. Rather than making calls from deep inside buildings try moving
outside or to a window to place your call. If you are having reception
problems on the street try walking to the nearest intersection as they
typically have better coverage. Cellular band radio waves do not
effectively penetrate earth: if you are underground you will likely
receive no signal.
3Install a cellular repeater.
If you are having cell problems in one location, such as your home or
office, then try installing a cellular repeater. Cell phone repeaters
pick up low cell signal with an antenna, boost the signal and broadcast
it over the coverage area. They typically need at least 2 bars of
signal where the antenna is placed (usually outside or on the roof) but
can substantially improve cell reception, as well as battery life and
data download speeds. Some repeaters might need technical knowledge
such as the frequency of your carrier, and only work for one service
provider. For a less technical approach that improves reception on all
carriers, use a dual-band cell phone repeater.
4Upgrade your antenna.
A few cell phone manufacturers make a "Hi-gain" antenna for their
handsets, which may be changed in-store or by the user at home.
Although these won’t improve signal as much (or at all) as a repeater
these antennas are relatively inexpensive and you are not confined to
Most networks operate independently of one another, using their own
frequencies and constructing their own cell phone towers. Chances are
if the signal is bad with one network you can improve by switching.
Most cellular networks these days allow you to transfer your phone
number when you change provider.
6Hold your phone correctly.
Mobile phone antennas are designed to project a signal outward,
perpendicular to the long axis of the antenna. As such, mobile phones
seek signals in a donut-esque shape around the antenna. Normally, when
a mobile is held upright, this is not a problem. However, if you are
holding your phone in a strange way, such as on its side or upside
down, you will hinder the operation of the antenna. Hold your phone
upright to guarantee that your phone can "see" your carrier signal.
7Host a cell site.
This may take time, but where cell phone reception is inadequate
property owners can host small cell sites on their properties for major
wireless carriers. 3rd parties with Wireless Revenue Programs allow you
to register your property to be eligible. Then when there is carrier
interest in the area you'll be on the short list of places they choose
from and will have optimal coverage. They may even pay your phone bill.
I have the same problem. Contacted 3rd party tech, take sharp pick or equal and there is supposedly a button in the very center of the antenna port of the phone. gently push the pick in the center of the jack and it will trip the switch. I tried it on my second damaged phone and it worked, so far.
well.. few old mobile phone antenna was easy to remover i remmber old day when my father use to own Erricson moble phone you can can the antenna and plug it out simply up wards but new phone i heard that we must unscrew them to replace the problem . better get it to the repair guy . i am sure he won't charge you much for this
i was recently told that if you use an external antenna on the razr, you can 'burn out' the internal antenna resulting in no service or intermittant service, even when in an area that normally provides strong signal, thus it may be that your internal antenna is the problem.
