Bro the reception in that area of the house must be poor, as you've said. The walls in that area of the house must be too thick, or some part of the house is blocking the signal that the attena emits. You should consider getting an antenna that can be placed outside the house, like on the roof top. Make sure it isn't being blocked by anything, like trees with large branches or whatever.

Is Clear-Cast TV micro antenna device legitimate?


From a basic standpoint, yes it is legitimate and it will work. How well it will work really depends on a number of things. it depends on where in your house you place it, how far you are from the transmitters and what your house is made from. The structure can interfere with reception.
As a general rule, outside is better than inside for over the air digital reception. Higher is also better, so place any antenna as far up on your house as you can outside, next go to the attic space if you can;t mount it outside. And even if you are in a condo or HOA , they have to allow you to mount a TV antenna on your house outside under FCC regulations.

Antenna hook up


If you are using an indoor Antenna:
1- the most probable reason would be the location of the antenna and TV in an area where the reception is very low. Indoors all houses are affected by the running electrical circuits which in turn generate magnetic field that together with the structure of the house obstruct or weaken the wave signals of wireless and TV reception. Also this issue may be aggravated by the vicinity you are live in. Where you are living may not have the optimum reception from some services including TV signals. Your best bet is to try moving the (Indoor) antenna closer to the outside (such as windows, or better to a balcony) and try all four directions of the house.
2- One other possibility, is the antenna jack being disconnected from one of its wires (or a de-solder) at an internal part of its circuit). This problem can be detected by trying another antenna that is working good when used with another TV (and preferably at a different location) thus testing for the possible weak signal at the same time.
3- The last possible issue is the antenna receptacle built onto the Tv set. This may have a problem of some element of it disconnected internally on the board or de-soldered..
If the Antenna is external, all the above points are still valid, but the probability is higher, for some hidden disconnection on the receptacle, the antenna plug or at the connection of the co-axial cable with the external antenna. (Once I found a co-axial cable with disconnections of its central copper wire within the protective insulating coat- probably due to defects in the plastic coat that had microscopic holes that allowed air and humidity into the central wire and caused it to corrode and have those discontinuities)..

Why can't I get reception on my TruTech tv model DW19TT even after plugging in a Phillips digital indoor tv antenna


If the antenna is working and you are not receiving a signal, then you could have a bad tuner, use a tuner from a VCR , connect the ant to the VCR and go from the VCR with Video cables and go to the Video input on the TV and put your TV in Video mode. That will work.

Just bought a house and moved in. I have plug the TV into the wall antenna socket and the TV comes up with the message 'weak or no signal' what could be the problem?


Hi, congratulation on your new house!

The problem is obviously from your antenna. The TV is not recieving any reception from the antenna and that is why it is displaying 'weak or no signal'.

Cross check your antenna connection and make sure the antenna wire is intact.

Also, most antenna's come with a booster. The booster makes reception from the antenna very strong and the TV would be clear.

Lastly, is this a new antenna or were you using it in your old house?

Please give me a feed back.

Yours sincerely.

VIORE PLC7V95 7'' portable TV, cant get channels when scan


I notice that on mine, the positioning of the included tv antenna is very, very, very finicky. I also don't know how to "add" a new channel other than to hook it to the big house antenna and pick "re-scan" (or auto-scan or whatever it's called).

So I think your best bet is to pick a better antenna or know that even the tiniest fiddling with the antenna makes a diff. Sometimes, I even have the antenna horizontal (using the magnet) to get the good reception on a given channel. Seems like a hassle except that what should I expect from a tiny antenna....

One channel on LCD not clear picture help!


this is a problem with the reception in your area. It should be resolved with an adjustment of your antenna to a location of clear reception.Ask someone in the house watch the television while the antenna is being adjusted for best reception and set the antenna. If you have cable, you must contact the cable company and ask them if they have a resolution to the reception problem. Hope this helps you with your problem.
