Can anyone advise me what could be wrong.Got philips lcd in lounge works
perfect no problem with good signal,another lcd in bedroom,no problems,good
clear picture, small fold under lcd in kitchen no signal,can play dvds get
radio but no signal in any channels,have checked connection for aerial seems
Take kitchen tv to other socket and try it.
If it doesn't work, the tv is either incorrectly tuned or has a receiver
fault. The tv receiver circuitry is mostly independent of the radio and
dvd playback stuff, so it can be faulty whilst everything else works
If it does work - kitchen aerial lead is not giving (enough) signal. So
trace the aerial lead back to where it joins with the other aerial
leads. You may have a distribution box there that is faulty - try
swapping the output leads around and see if the fault transfers to a
different tv. Is so, replace the distribution box or get it repaired.
If the fault doesn't transfer, the cable between box and tv has a fault.
There is a handy tool called a tdr which can localise the problem.
It may then be possible to repair the cable at that point. However, tdrs
are expensive... The alternative is to visually check along the cable,
looking for damage. Or simply replace it. You may be able to use the
existing, faulty, cable to pull sections of the replacement cable
bedroom after tuning in,tried lounge did not take in signal(thats main
aerial socket that runs other things(pvr &dvd)went back to kitchen checked
again no signal,checked connections,tried booster been up to loft all wires
connected and tidy,husband has a black cable so is going to try that and fix
on ends,if that doesnt work dont know what else to try.If the worst comes to
the worst and I have to get someone in who do I get aerial fixer or tv man.
Another option in addition to those mentioned is to take a working TV from
the lounge or bedroom and try it in the kitchen. If another working TV works
in the kitchen then you have a TV problem, if another working TV doesn't
work in the kitchen then you have an aerial lead problem.
