Fixing Common TV Aerial Problems

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 124

When it comes to fixing the signal of your TV aerial, you should place the TV aerial where the best reception is achieved. As much as possible, this should be placed on higher ground.

If you plan to install the aerial inside your home, you may do so as you can also get quality TV signal inside. For example, you may place your TV aerial at the loft.However, when installed inside, a set-top aerial may not be enough to get quality, digital TV signal.

In case your signal in the set-top box or digital TV is weak, you may expect to have picture break-ups, clicking sounds, or total loss of picture. If one or more of these cases happen for a while, it is highly advised that you upgrade or replace your aerial.

On the other hand, if one of the above cases is just a recent problem you are having with your digital TV, you may try to reset your set-top box or digital TV box to fix it. You may also use the BBC reception problems tool in order to see if your local transmitter is affected by some maintenance work within your area.

If you want to know whether your TV signal is really affected or just your reception affected, a TV set connected to a different aerial (such as your neighbor's) will determine the real situation.If you found that the set is only affected, you may conduct a check on the following:

• Check if the aerial lead is securely plugged in the set-top box or TV • Check other connections too in order to determine if aerial is broken or out of alignment • Check if the aerial is pointing in the same direction like other aerials nearby

If you are done checking the above points but still there's no improvement, you may need the TV aerial and its connections checked for any further faults. In such cases, wherein work or repair is required to your aerial, you should seek a professional aerial engineer to help you out.

Moreover, it is equally important that you also figure put your location and set-up. Like for example, if you are living in a flat, you may find out that you are sharing a TV aerial with the rest of your "flat mates". In such case, check out if others also experience the same reception issues. If they are, then you may have a faulty aerial.

If you wish to go digital, you may replace the communal aerial with a newer and better version of aerial. Always remember the rule of the thumb that if you receive strong analogue signal, then you should receive digital TV. For communal aerial users, you may also communicate with your landlord about aerial upgrade.
