Sounds like an Aerial fault. Obviously, the first thing you should do is check the the aerial connection to the TV.

Simple test for the aerial is to connect another television to the aerial connection for the faulty TV. If the second TV is OK, it's a faulty TV. If neither work, it's an aerial or aerial cable fault. If you don't have a spare to test with, can someone loan you one for a short time?

If neither work, check the aerial itself? Has it moved in the wind? Is it still pointing the right way (towards your transmitter). Has an element (one of the metal fins) broken off?

Try this and post back.

These answers do not fit my question. One day, on three different sets in my home, where I have received NBC for years just quit working. Did NBC quit broadcasting? It is not snowy, etc, it is just no


Ok This is what I found out and hopefully found your solution..
Have you heard of Double Rescan?
The Federal Communication Comission Designed a Process called double rescan.
Double Rescanning erases and thenreprograms the channels in the converter box an digital TVs memory.
To Double Rescan, you will first need to disconnect the antenna from the converter box or antenna.
Then disconnect the converter and or digital tv power supplies from the wall. Wait a minute before plugging them back in. The antenna should still be disconnected.
With the antenna disconnected run the channel scan function on the coverter box or digital tv. When the scan completes you will have completely removed any channel data the converter box or digital tv, had in its memory.
Now it's time to rescan for real.
Do this by reconnecting the antenna to the converter box or digital tv and running the channel scan function again.
Thus the double rescan is born.
If the double rescan doesn't work, then try some tips and tricks to get your converter box up and running..I will have to look up the url again that has the tips and tricks...
If the double rescan doesn't work let me know and I will look up more options..
I really hope this works..

Some of my channels were lost after I TRIED RESCANNING I I LOST


Check your antenna direction (antennaweb.org or tvfool.com are good sources for signal direction). When I lose channels, it's a digital signal that came in with "bad signal" strength and my external antenna has rotated in the wind. (Oddly another TV in the house doesn't seem to lose the signal as easily even though they share an antenna.)

Also check the weather conditions and time of day. I've gained distant channels when scanning near sunrise or sunset and lost others during thunderstorms.

I hope this helps.

you are doing well to have any channels at all as all the other people have lost all sports and movies so i would delete the channels that are scrambled and then rescan you must delete the scrambled channels before you rescan

Lost several stations afyter conversion like al PBS stations. Is there something we can do?


Try rescanning for new channels. Some stations changed their Digital transmitter frequencies when they took their Analog transmitters off air. Rescanning will relocate those transmissions.
