Re: Replace old tv antenna with a new one.
Make diagram on paper of the old socket . Carefully unscrewing old socket from wall, DO NOT CUT WIRES, copy color of wires (if any) and where and how meny wires on the paper. EXAMPLE:: you have just pulled old socket away from wall, look and see how meny wires, colors if any, and where they are in contrast to the socket.(left wire=blue, middle wire=black, left=yellow, connector that is up or down=color. MARK these wires on paper, and if possible TAPE a piece of paper with a nember[#] on the wire and place that # on the paper corresponding to the wire in socket wall.
Take the socket to electronics store.NOTE;; IF STORE does not have a exact replacement ask store for SIMULOR replacement.Show the diagram you made to help you buy the right replacement.

I am still using the antenna I fitted 25 years ago and it works fine for my flat tv, most new antennas will say that they are good gor hd tv, internal antennas normally have a cable built in to connect to tv but outdoor / loft ones require cable. Some homes have a wall socket for antenna feed but you need a cable to go from this to the tv.
Hope this helps
I just replaced the antenna on our 02 rodeo. No need to remove radio or anything in dash. This is how I did it. First you will need access to back of fender, enough room for your hand. Open hood and remove 3 bolts running along top of fender, open passenger door and remove top bolt holding fender. Gently pry top of fender away from vehicle. Place object in gap to hold fender ( I used the head of a rubber mallet). Reach inside fender and disconnect old antenna, follow cable through wall into passenger compartment. Gently pull cable from behind carpet and unplug old antenna from coupler. Connect new antenna to fender ( replacement antenna I ordered was slightly smaller than opening so I had to add washer). Run new antenna cable through wall and plug into coupler. Re-attach fender
HI, check the wall outlet to make sure that it is live.if you are using a surge protector, i would pull the unit from the protector and, try a wall outlet. sometimes the surge protector will short out and, it will seem that the TV is the issue. if the protector is fine and, the wall sockets are ok, this will confirm a more serious issue that concerns the power sector inside the unit.
You will need to replace the power supply board or, fly back assembly in this case.
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a
tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for
power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher
(inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is
the case, the wiring must be repaired or replace
If the junction box checks out ok, the wall outlet socket is live, replace the main control or timer module.
If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).
