Common TV antenna problems that can be fixed

Published on 17 October 13

It is rather annoying to find that your high-tech digital TV is not delivering the goods. Sometimes, it may not be a problem with your television set. It may simply be a problem with areas such as:

- Signal transmission,

- Common TV antenna problems,

- Problems with your other equipment and even

- Bad weather conditions.

When it comes to common TV antenna problems, a lot of them can be fixed by knowing what to do and who to call. A lot of companies have extremely detailed websites where they promise free price quotes and access to the best and most qualified antenna specialists.

The process of fixing antenna problems

Normally, companies are accessible through email or telephone. What you need to do is:

- Tell the representative exactly what is the problem that you are facing,

- Schedule an appointment with the TV antenna specialist and

- Wait for the technician to come home and fix the problem.

At the outset, it is a good idea to retain the services of a company that can deliver best in class technical and customer support. Plenty of times, problems can be fixed by disconnecting the power socket and waiting for a few seconds and then powering back the television. A good service provider will always give you directions to fix the problem yourself before sending a technician over and charging you for the same.

Deterioration of equipment

This is perhaps the most common of all antenna problems. Since the antenna is exposed to all weather elements, it is going through quite a huge degree of stress and strain and this can bring on erosion or deterioration of the metals, cables and sockets used to connect up your digital television set. A qualified technician will be able to check out exactly what is the equipment that needs to be replaced, repaired and upgraded. It is a good idea to keep your equipment upgraded so as to enjoy the best of reception and clarity.

Broken or loose leads and equipment

Over a period of time, sockets and leads may also come loose. Components may also break. For example, a broken fly lead is perhaps a rather common occurrence. Fortunately, it is also the easiest one to fix. Other equipment that can develop some kind of issue or the other is:

- Signal boosters

- Amplifiers

- Signal splitters and

-The antenna as a whole.

All of which will cause antenna problems.

Manifestations of antenna problems

Of course, the best way to identify that your antenna is having problems is by looking at the picture quality itself. The picture should

- Not be grainy and jumpy

- Be continuous - with no breaks in actions.

If you have more information on antenna problems, you will be able to rectify them easily. You may also be missing a few channels in which case it is likely that your antenna should be replaced. If you have multiple TV connections at home and they vary in quality and content, then again, your antenna and equipment may need to be repaired.

Thus, common TV antenna problems can be fixed rather easily. Sometimes they may be due to other equipment malfunctioning too.
