Problem With HD Jack Antenna

Hi Everyone,

Sat down to watch our tv, pressed the button on the switch for the antenna.
There is a green light on for the switch, but on the HD Jack Antenna on the ceiling there are no lights at all. There is also no picture, no signal on the tv.

Any ideas, and how to check out what the problem could be?

Cheers

Did you scan for air channels?

If a new problem a wire must have come disconnected somewhere, or the circuit in the wall or the Jack that puts power or takes it off the coax has failed. Pull the wall plate and disconnect the wire to the antenna. Make sure the center conductor is about even with the nut part of the connector that screws onto the socket. Do the same at the antenna.

If wire ok, must be the antenna or the wall plate. If you have a voltmeter, check between the center and outside of the connector on the cable at the antenna. You should see 12 volts there.

Did you ever have power to the antenna where the directional dial is located? If so, I would check if you still have power coming in to that point (if you suddenly don't have lights there).

HD Jack Antenna

Thanks for all your help

I did have power to the directional thingy, but after bringing it into the AS dealer for a lighting problem near the AC unit, and the rear lighting in the rear bedroom, I only just discovered no power to the directional unit.

How do I check it with the voltmeter, and what could the problem be?

I think I would have a chat with the AS dealer.

I'm with r Carl. It was working when taken to the dealer and not working when it came back. They either disconnected something and forgot to put it back or cut a cable.

To check it yourself you will have to get access to the wiring area under the trim piece where the LEDs are at the base of the antenna. Check your manual or download one. The power comes up the coax cable. See my post above.
