My rooftop antenna has stopped receiving television signals. It happened after a severe electrical storm. Is there any way to repair it or even to determine what the problem is?

I've had this happen before. I had to run a new cable from the antennae, the lightening burn up the wires in side the cable. You can get the cable at any electronics store (Radio Shack), or at most hardware stores (Home Depot). Try running a new cable from the antennae, this should clear it right up.

    You can get the cable with the tv end already attached, so go that route. On the antennae end, some are soldiered, and some are connected using a compression fitting. You will need to inspect the antennae end to see which you have. Soldiered will require heating the old soldier for removal, then resoldier the new exactly as the old. A compression fitting is much easier, and requires loosening a nut. Note how the old is in the fitting, then place the new in, exactly as the old, and retighten the nut.

Try replacing the rotor
motor and its control box, the antenna should be fine. look into sticking a lightning rod on your roof (higher up than the antenna) to prevent future damages to your antenna also. Hope this helps!

It is due to the disturbance of the wirres passig the signals a proper technician can definately clear the problem for you if you yourself want to try this is the option


You could always try an attic install if it doesn't work all you have to do is run the coax from the attic to the outside loacation.

I've got a attic antenna. I get 85-99% on all channels..

If that's vinyl sidding you can hide the cabling under it buy using a unzipping tool.

You can buy coaxial cable with gound wire attached. Just make sure you use a ground block if you don't the electricity may go down the coax.

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working


My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

If you're in the US, you will no longer get antenna signals because the US has recently switched to digital. The TV you have does not have a digital tuner and you'll need to purchase a digital converter box that converts a band of analog signal to digital.

Green (power on) light continuously blinking/set won't turn on


This set was designed in such a way that when it is unplugged and plugged back in the LED will blink for around 90 seconds and then stop. During that time you cannot turn the set on. This is the amount of time it takes for the Digital Module to boot up. These units have a problem with some capacitors going bad in the Digital Module and when that happens the LED never stops blinking. You need to contact a qualified repair shop to get it repaired. I have repaired many and the cost is around $250 to $350 depending on where you live. That set is well worth the repair cost.
