If you’re having problems with your TV aerial, or the dreaded “No signal” message keeps appearing, there could be a number of reasons why. Sometimes, the issue can be really easy to fix:
1. Switch on your power supply unit or amplifier
Every modern TV comes with both of these so it’s worth a double check to make sure that they’re on and that you have the aerial input and output the right way round in the back of the TV.
2. Check your aerial cable
Is your aerial cable definitely plugged in? Have a look behind your TV to make sure everything is in place and that the cable hasn’t come loose.
3. Make sure you’re on the right source/input setting
There are so many input options for TVs now, because so many devices can be hooked up to them. It could be that you haven’t lost your signal at all, you’re just trying to view something on a channel that isn’t associated with your TV channel provider. Have a check through the source and input options on your TV remote, to make sure that you’re trying to view the right one.
4. Tune your TV
If you head for the tune menu on the TV, you can set this to autotune, and if this is your problem, then it will be a very easy fix, as the TV scans through to find the right channel for your TV and region. If this doesn’t work, try manually tuning.
5. Replace your aerial
Of course, it could be that your aerial is on its last legs, and it’s time to get a new one. It’s worth taking the time to research online, or getting in touch with a professional for advice, to ensure that you have the right set up to get the best signal quality for your surroundings. You’ll also need to know where the local transmitter is, to be able to mount your new aerial accurately.
6. Replace your aerial cable
It’s worth investing in a high quality cable, so that you don’t have to keep replacing it and experiencing the same problems with loss of signal.
