How To Keep Your TV Antenna Performing

Your TV aerial is one of the most important parts of your TV set up. Without it, you would not be able to get broadcast signals, which are carried over the air.

Problems with your TV antenna can make it less able to pick up signals, and less able to transmit it to your TV. Yet Action Antennas think that simple maintenance steps can help you to keep your Sunshine Coast home’s TV antenna going for longer and transform your TV use.

Fixing trouble caused by damage

One of the most common problems with TV use is that signals can be lost and there is a poor-quality picture when it does appear. This is because your antenna has been damaged in some way and needs to be adjusted. This is a simple maintenance task that you can manage for yourself, and that will allow you to get the best from your unit.

Look for loose connections

Sometimes, the simplest explanation is the easiest one, and if you have trouble with your reception, or with the picture displayed, then you should have a look to make sure that the aerial is still in place. It is easy to loosen the cable and can really affect your viewing experience. You should do this before you call out Action Antennas to save yourself money.

Is your TV on the wrong input?

Another thing that is easy to check without our mechanic is to make sure that the TV is not on the wrong input or source. This can mean that you end up with a ‘wrong signal’ message that blocks the screen. You should examine your TV selection and the choices that you have made to see if that can solve the problem.

Retune your TV

We can often be asked to come out to help you retune your TV. This means that you need to adjust the transmitter that your antenna should be using. The TV needs to pick the right frequency, and you do this by having the TV tuned to that location.
