Don't understand why local channels no signal it is not storming


Do you have an internal or external antenna? Does you have an signal amplifier, signal splitter or switch connected?

If the TV was previously connected to this antenna and received multiple channels, check the orientation. External antennas can turn under some conditions. With digital (ATSC) signals, this can be a significant issue, as the tuner may not see enough of the signal.

If there was an powered amplifier attached, check if the unit is getting power. Next check if the signal improves when the amplifier, switch or splitter is removed. In my house, usually only a few channels will be initially blocked by a faulty amplifier. In that case, the amplifier turned into a signal filter for a section of the VHF range. Replace the amplifier or switch if it faulty. If you are using a switch, try an amplifier/splitter that will limit the signal attenuation.

Use www.antennaweb.org or www.tvfool.com to check if where the antenna should point. Antennaweb.org assumes an external antenna and gives very conservative channel lists.

If the problem persists, check if another TV tuner works when connected to the antenna. You could connect a tuner box between the TV and the antenna as a solution. Tuners vary in signal strength sensitivity. Alternatively, replace the TV or the input board with the tuner. (If the TV is under warranty, contact the manufacturer. However, for most small TVs (under <32"), the repair costs are not worth the effort. Sites like www.shopjimmy.com can tell you if parts are available - this site specializes in parts from TVs that were damaged in shipping.)

I hope this helps.

Garmin Nuvi 680 GPS Receiver no satellite signal


Hello,

The connection to the antenna is most likely broken.
This is one of the main issues with the flip up antenna on the nuvi 6xx models.
The unit could be sent to a repair depot, but would most likely cost more to fix than what it is worth considering the price of a new GPS in today's market.

How can i fix the very bad signal of my nokia 5310. i have tried putting in different sim cards, and it still does not pick up signal. other phones get fine signal in places where my phone doest have any...


The older cell phones used to have external antennas, which got much better reception in some cases than the new internal antennas, depending on the brand of phone. There are small sticky internal antennas that you can buy like at wal mart that i have tried and they do improve your signal by a bar some cases more, it is worth a try.

No longer receives GPS signal


Does this unit have an input for an external antenna? If you get/borrow another antenna you could see if it starts working. That might isolate the problem to the antenna.

My Delphi Roady XT receiver will not maintain the signal. Does not work even I replaced the antenna. Works for a about 5 minutes before losing the signal


I had the same problem with my xt two years ago. I had two other roadys' at the time and they both worked with that antenna so I called xm customer service explained what was happening and they sent me a new receiver for $10. They told me that those units aren't worth trying to repair. Maybe you'll have the same luck I did. Give em a shout. Good luck.

No GPS signal?


I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.

Antenna not detected / Searching for signal


I have the same problem. It's happened twice now. Each antenna has lasted about 1 year. The connection is good, the antennas just stop working. It's almost like there's some built in life span. Who knows. It's ridiculous either way.

Antenna Not Detected. Now I have to buy a new one AGAIN $39.00 and re-wire thole whole thing in my car. PITA
