Question Tv not responding

Again, I am doubting my intelligence. This has been happening alot since we bought our new RV last month[first timers]. Trying to get 32" Jensen TV to work using antenna. Turned on boost, set to air, scan for channels, scans and says RF 69, Found 0. Then screen goes back to 'please run auto scan'. Checked all cables, took TV into house and hooked up and received channels ok. Cd pleayersworksgood and could get a movie to play on tv....but no tv. Whats up and where do i go from here?
Thanks, and we really appreciate you seasoned Rv'rs taking thetime to help us out. Want to make a maiden trip to washington coast in three weeks. uh, yes we will still go if TV is not working.

A shot in the dark...have you verified that the cable is connected to the TV?

You don't mention where you are located. We have camped at some rural places where there is no antenna reception. You mostly have to be close enough to a city to get the signals.

Also, what kind of antenna? Is is up? Have you tried adjusting it?

Seems like I remember some setting asking for analog or digital channels...that may need to be adjusted as well. Analog doesn't work without a converter box, I think.

We have a 2011 Sunseeker and the operation of the televisions is the most complicated part of the entire unit. :-)

I was in S. Colorado and my 32 Jensen did the same thing. I was going by the factory on the way home. So, they said bring it in. Guess what.. They don't have tv in that part of Colorado.

I remember someone on here finding the connections tight at the TV but, the coax to antenna on the roof was loose. If you can carefully get up there and inspect. It may require removing the antenna from its base to check the connection though.
Good luck

We camped in several places in Georgia and Florida that don't have any television reception. Actually, at our home in rural Tennessee, we only get one or two channels with the antenna. That's why we have DishNetwork. The Dish Tailgater works pretty good, unless it's raining or you are in a place that is really dense with tree cover. Sometimes, we just have to listen to music and talk to each other. :-)

Use one of these sites. Input your address or zip code and it will tell you which stations if any you should be able to get.

And it will tell you which direction to point your antenna.

If you get reception in the house but not in the rig (presumeably on the driveway) then it is not likely to be a problem with no TV reception in that area. It most likely is a problem getting the TV signal from the antenna to the TV input. Is the antenna okay; is the coax properly connected; does it go through a separate device (DVD player) before connecting to the TV; is the separate device correctly set?

I suspect a qualified service professional can trace the problem in a few minutes and save you weeks of worrying about it.
