TV Transmitter Problems and Repair

A transmitter is usually an electronic device that generates radio waves with the help of an antenna. It is commonly used as a means of broadcast through radios as radio transmitters and televisions as TV transmitters. Thus, a television or TV transmitter is an electronic device that transmits electromagnetic signals to the television receiver. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to TV Transmitter Problems that has been answered by the Experts.

What should an individual do if they connected a Brite-View transmitter to the satellite box and their Direct TV receiver to their new HDTV, however when the TV was moved it messed up the setup and now the signal is unable to reach the transmitter?

Based on what you mentioned, it looks like you would require an IR repeater or extender in this particular case. Now usually, these units transmit the IR signal to a receiver using the radio frequency, commonly known as the RF. These frequencies help to control a device like that of yours through the IR signal.

Is it possible to attach a wireless headset transmitter to a Plasma TV with no audio output jack? If so how can this be done?

Usually, you would find a ‘digital audio output’ receptacle in almost all the television sets. These outputs are either labeled as ‘SPDIF’ or ‘Toslink’. In this case, it would not be possible for you to plug in the wireless headphone transmitter directly to the audio output jack. Therefore, in order to make the headset function, all you would need to do is get a converter and connect it to the TV’s digital output using a cable. Once that is done, you would have to connect the headphone transmitter to the converter and it should work properly.

How can an individual fix a problem where their TV is tuned to the Much Marcle transmitter and the individual has lost all channels on the TV? The individual has performed a retuning but nothing worked. The Topfield box and Panasonic TV had no signal, however, the new digital TV worked fine.

Since the retuning did not work in this case, what you could do is perform a double rescan to see if you could get your channels back. In order to do that, you would first need to take out the coaxial cable from your Topfield box that connects the box to your antenna. Once that is done, you can start scanning for the channels. After you have finished scanning the channels without the antenna, you would need to switch off the Topfield box and disconnect it from the power for about a minute or two. You would be able to reboot your box through this procedure that would allow it to delete all the former channels from its memory. Now, you can switch on the Topfield box. However, before switching it on, you would need to reconnect the cable back to your box from the antenna. Once the box is turned on, you would again have to scan the channels. This would allow you to receive all the available channels at their highest strength. You must however know that the transmission power on the Much Marcle transmitter usually remains low which is why there are only few channels that can be broadcasted on that transmitter.

The TV transmitters usually broadcast signals either in analog or digital format. However, with the 2009 digital switchover, these signals have been broadcasted in the high definition digital format that has resulted in better reception. Despite such good reception of broadcast signals, there have still been issues with the transmission when it came to watching the TV channels. Viewers have complained about issues related to transmitter and/or electrical interferences, quality and location of antennas, connection problems and so on. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to TV Transmitter Problems, you may ask an Expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
