No - the factory cable is a one piece cable to the radio- what you can do is to cut off the end that went to the original antenna replace it with a female antenna end and just plug the new antenna into it (easiest way)

No dvb signal on Vierra Panasonic tv


If the tvs share the aerial but only one is working then the wiring of the non functioning socket has shorted. Perhaps the cable you used to connect the second set is damaged,try another. PERHAPS THE AERIAL SOCKET HAS BECOME DAMAGED,THIS ONLY COSTS A FEW PONDS/DOLLARS TO CHANGE. Alternatively it might be the wiring from the roof to the wall socket that is faulty.
First things first, check that the tv is working by connecting it in the other room. If it does work there you will know that theaerial socket in the second room is faulty and can begin testing.

Hi, tv says no signal, have swapped out aerials set to australia dtv, still no signal. Please help.


what type of cable are you using because video av cable looks exactly like aerial coxial cable but electrically they are quite different.Also make sure impedance matches. cable on antenna , cable from wall to tv , aerial socket designed for same impedance.

if you are a long way from tv station transmitter a mast head amplifier would be employed. this could be another point of failure.

Will not connect to tv channel


  • Connect the existing Aerial/Cable TV
    signal (or from the Cable Box/Satellite
    Receiver {RF OUT or TO TV}) to the
    ANTENNA-IN socket on the
    recorder.

  • Use the supplied RF coaxial cable to
connect TV-OUT socket on the
recorder to the aerial input socket on
your TV (VHF/UHF RF IN).

Helpful Hint:
- Depending on how you have currently
connected your TV channel (directly from an
off-air aerial or Cable box or VCR), you will
have to disconnect some of the cables before
you make the above connection.

Problems with Philips vhs recorder/dvd player


You only need coaxial cable to pick up TV stations broadcast via an aerial. If your TV has sockets to connect via HDMI or SCART, then any players can be connected via them. So if the adapter box picks up TV signals, you connect the main aerial cable to that and it should have a coaxial out socket, that should be connected to the aerial in of your TV. If you are recording to an analogue video from the adapter box, then that will need to be connected via a scart socket or other connection.

Just fitted a cd/radio to to my 03 fiat punto. the cd player works great but the radio is rubbish,terrible reception no matter what i do. the correct connection is in the back of it. i love the radio. help...


This may not be very easy. Presuming that the aerial cable was already there and there was a standard plug on the cable that fitted into your standard socket on the radio, and presuming that you are confident that it all fitted OK, then the problem is with a faulty cable or aerial.

Just before you start, can I suggest that you DO test the radio and check that there is no fault in it. Particularly if you have removed an old radio with perfectly good reception. You might want to take it back to the shop and ask them to hook it up and test it for you. If the radio is clearly good, then my thoughts are as follows:

Typically the fault will eventially trace down to a portion of the outer copper brading in the cable being in contact with the inner core that carries the radio signal. This is usually right at the end in the plug and it's worth cutting off the plug and refitting a new one as a first step (You might even be able to carefully bare the inner core of the cable and push it into the cernre hole in the socket of the radio and test it before the new plug is fitted).

The second area of failure is typically the point at which the cable reaches the car aerial. It's not uncommon for water to get into a seal wher it is attached to the body and affect the performance of the aerial. Once again, you MAY be able to snip the cable at this end and re-make a nice clean dro connection. I have to be honest and say I don't know how the fitting go in this vehicle, so I'm shooting in the dark a little here. Obviously, if the vehicle has a built in aerial in the windscreen or back window somewhere, then my last suggestion is pretty redundant.

Finally, having tried to re-make connections at both ends of the cable, it's potentially time to buy a new aerial and cable and re-fit the whole thing from end to end. This is not a very fun job!

My Polaroid HDTV says no signal. What is going on.


  • Have you plugged in the arial?
  • Is it in the right socket?
  • Are you using an aerial cable extender/splitter?
  • Are you using a portable indoor aerial?
  • Does it have built in Freeview?
  • Have you plugged in an external Freeview box if necessary?
  • Have you scanned for channels through the Freeview box?
  • Are you in an area where the analogue signal has been turned off?
  • Have you subscribed to a cable or satellite provider?
  • Are you on the right TV source?
  1. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in.
  2. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in correctly.
  3. If you are using an aerial cable extender or splitter, make sure all parts are connected all the way up to the aerial.
  4. If you're using a portable indoor aerial you might not be able to get enough signal to produce a picture. Also the aerial might need to be switched on, plugged in or need batteries.
  5. If the TV has Freeview built-in then you will need to scan for channels before you will get a picture. refur to you're TV's manual.
  6. Make sure, if you have got an external Freeview box that it is plugged in and switched on at the wall. Also make sure that it is connected to the TV either by a scart lead or by HDMI cable.
  7. Typically there will be a button on the remote called menu. From the menu screen choose setup. Then choose auto scan. Follow any on-screen instructions. Always refur to the TV's manual to avoid confusion and frustration.
  8. If you are in an area where they have switched off the analogue signal you will need to buy a Freeview box or subscribe to a cable or satellite provider. Freeview is cheep and is a one off payment ( best for people who will only really watch channels 1-5)
  9. Ring up your providers tech support.
  10. To change what input you are viewing, there will normally be a button called source on the remote. If you have connected a Freeview or cable/satalite box to the tv with a scart lead then select scart. If you used a HDMI lead then select HDMI. (There may be more than one of theses sockets so check behind the TV first. They usually have names or numbers by the side) refur to you're TV manual for help.
That is every problem i can think of. If it still doesnt work, take it back to the shop.
Hope this helps.

Not all SCART connectors and cables carry the IN and OUT connections - make sure that the one from the freeview box has OUT connections, that the cable can carry them and that the one from the recorder has IN connections. Then , to record what you want, all you have to do is to tune the freeview box on that channel and set the recorder to use that SCART connector as source.

Hi Fiona
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas
