First of all you need to rule out faults with anything else that could have caused it. This could be the television or the cables that you use to connect to the television. Check that the television is working as normal and that all of the cables are put in the right places and are firmly secured. If you have checked this and all is working as it should be, it may be time to call in a professional like this TV aerial repair Bristol based company Aerial installations.

These are some of the things that can cause your TV aerial to stop working correctly…

Damage to the Cable – The aerial cable could have become damaged for many reasons – pests like mice or rats can gnaw through cables, or storms and weather damage can also cause the cable to deteriorate. If the cable is over ten years in age, then this is likely to have also deteriorated naturally over time so it may be time for a replacement cable.

Blocking the Signal – If the signal has suddenly become blocked, there could be something in the way of it. If this is recent, then have a look and see what has caused it – it may be a new housing development in the area, or a tree may have grown tall enough to block out the signal getting to your aerial.

Aerial Damage – It could be that the aerial itself has become damaged. Again, this could be due to the age and the wear and tear over time on the aerial, or it could be due to wind knocking the aerial out of position, or part of it might have corroded. In some cases it is possible to reposition the aerial, however if there is damage to the aerial itself you are likely to need a new one.
