Unclear TV pictures

I'm renting a house with outdoor antenna on the roof. The TV connected to the antenna is clear when the antenna is in 'good' mood. When it's windy, the antenna 'moves' & the pictures became unclear. I'm afraid to get to the roof top to 'fix' the antenna, what should I do? (BTW, I don't need extra channels so setalite dish is not an option, just the few we get for free is more than enough)

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.

Make sure you are connected to a good digital antenna, roof mounted and pointing to your local transmitter. If in doubt, have a qualified TV engineer come and check your antenna. It may be slightly out of alignment.

Have lost satellite coverage due to money restraints, How to connect antenna to tv.


Please provide the following information.

1. what country are you in
2. does your country have digital or analog air television stations.

if your country does not have analog television you may not have options for a clear signal, you need an antena outside the house if you do not have a clear line of sight to the tv transmitter for analog television.

Also it may be a good idea to do a channel search from within the television menue.

Depends on how far away you are from the station. You may just need to elevate the one you have now. Just get a roof mount pole and mount the antenna on that. Radio Shack sells outdoor antennas especially for digital signals.

Need to know how to change and setup for use of antenna


Purchase your UHF/VHF antenna. The antenna can also be purchased at most electronic and retail stores. Consult your list from Step 1 and see how powerfulicon1.png the over-the-air signals are for your specific address. Purchase your antenna based on the broadcasting power you need to receive a clear picture on your TV. You might be able to get away with an indoor antenna if your signal strength is strong enough. If not, you'll need to purchase an outdoor antenna.

  • 4 Install your antenna (or have it done professionally) according to the building codes of your area. If you must use an outdoor antenna, it is a good ideaicon1.png to have the antenna professionally installed. This ensures that it is properly grounded on your roof, not too close to electrical wiring and stable during inclement weather.
  • 5 Hook the converter box up to your television using the cable that came with it (F Cable). Hook your antenna up to the converter Box. Turn on your TV and converter box. Tune your TV to channel 3 and press "Scan" on the digital convert box. Allow the box to scan for your available channels.
  • 6 View your picture and adjust your antenna accordingly for the clearest over-the-air feed. You should only need to make adjustments once. If you are having a difficult time getting a clear picture, use a signal strength indicator to see where you receive the most powerful signal.

    Ge antenna 24700


    Hi Patrick,
    A fuzzy signal on a plasma TV is not common anymore as with the lack of analog TV transmission the signal is either there or it is not.
    A amplified HD TV antenna is not always a solution and often times to get a good HD type reception a good outside antenna is required. I have two $100 antennas high up on my roof and still you can get a loss of data stream when the weather is bad. I also use distribution amplifiers to feed several TV's
    In the case that the picture is fuzzy but still there it might be a resolution setting that is wrong so hit the menu button on the remote and see if that display is clear- if it is then try setting a different resolution for the input that you are getting fuzzy signal on.

    Weak signal


    Please, start thinking of "outdoor" HDTV antenna installation. You must of be in use of TV's SD tuner and "rabbit ears" or so. Only outdoor or "roof" antenna will solve your issue. Unless you have another option: satellite, cable, verizon? Check with them, first.

    Hello
    You heard is correct. Your roof antenna can be connected to your TV, after connecting it to a balancing coil adapter, usually called 'Balun Adapter" which converts the impedence from 300 to 75 Ohms. It can be bought for most of the electronic shops all around. Connect the antenna wire to it and then plug it to your TV antenna in socket. The stations will be very clear, and well defined. You may have to turn the roof top antenna towards the direction of the transmitting tower to get a well defined, ghost free image. OK.

    Hello
    First of all reset the TV. for that

    press and hold the POWER button
    on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
    Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

    You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

    programming channels (-left-hand column).

    If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

    automatic channel programming process erases channels

    that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

    If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

    automatic channel programming process adds newly found

    channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

    does NOT erase channels that were previously

    programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

    source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

    it.

    To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

    memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

    remote control.

    Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

    configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

    the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

    however, once channel programming is finished, you should

    not have to repeat the programming process again unless
    your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
    Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

    Sound but No Picture


    Connect your outdoor antenna directly to your antenna in, in your TV see if it works and do the same with your cable input if it works then the A/B box is at fault.
