No signal from tv antenna.

I have the antenna up and have turned it in every direction trying to get a station, bit can't get any. Anyone have a clue why I can't get a single station? It seems like the antenna isn't working. Is there a booster that I don't know about?

Look for a cable outlet inside of a cabinet. There should be a switch sticking out. You need to flip it to get the antenna to work. It is used to switch between cable and antenna. Happened to me until I found it.

Yup there is a booster. Follow the coax cable from your tv to where it plugs into a plastic plate. Push in the little black button and a light should come on. Then you'll have to go into the TV menu and do a channel search. You'll probably have to rotate the antenna to get the strongest signal.

i gotta say, your questions should have been a basic part of your PDI.
how to use the antenna and what the outlets are for.

your dealer should be ashamed for not explaining these basic important areas to you.

I can not see inside of mine because it is in a small cubby hole under the tv.

Just googled it and found out that it is a 12v power supply. Thanks again for the help. I now have over 20 channels!

Happy surfing!



And be sure to turn the power off if you hook to cable.
