Is your OTA (over-the-air) antenna a omnidirectional, directional, on a short mast or a taller crank up mast. Is it a King Jack or a Winegard antenna? Do you have the signal booster turned on?


The most likely problem is the booster is not turned on. Look for a small button on the plate where the coax goes to the tv. Push the button to turn it on, a small LED will light up next to the button when it's on.

Besides the great advice above to get local channels you have to go into your tv's menu and scan for channels too.

OTA, we have a Winegard multi directional antenna, it is turned on, we scanned on every available option with the same result, 1 channel. There is no booster button or light on the back of the tv, which is a Jensen. ARRRRGH

If the neighbor gets 35 channels and you get one the antenna is not hooked up.

On mine the green light of the booster must be pressed.

Tighten all fittings.

Follow your coax cable from the TV, to a plate on the wall. Look there for the small booster button!

Good luck !

No can do, coax comes out of a hole from a closed compartment, no way to see coax plate unless I take it apart, will check on the roof connection I guess. Thanks to all for suggestions

On mine, the booster button is on the switch panel at the entry steps. It is the 2X4 black panel in the center with a tiny push button and green indicator light. That switch has to be on to power the antenna box on the ceiling. The ceiling box has a power on/off switch, attenuator knob, antenna rotate knob and 4 little lights. Rotate the antenna to get the most lights to light up. If they always all light up, you can adjust the attenuator knob a bit so that 3 lights light up and then rotate the antenna until the 4th light flickers or comes on full. Hope this makes sense.
