Customer Question
Hi! I'm Colin...

Hi! I'm Colin. My problem is that I have lost the ABC & SBS programs on 1 TV 2 months ago ... and now I am getting Digital static and break-up on my 2nd Digital TV. So, what would be causing this? My Antenna is not more than 3 years old and still looks as new.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?

Aquos Quattron is 1 TV and Neonia is the newer on that is just starting to give problems.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

No I can't get it to work, but maybe I don't know enough about it.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I don't really know - the weather was good and nothing unusual. The last issue on started last night, and again today - but inter intermitantly - not all the time.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything.

Not using a box and the Antenna is on the roof.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

It has to be antenna alignment do you know how far away the transmitter is?

Thank you for your trouble to follow up on a previous request, cancelled after a few confusing minutes of getting messages that had nothing to do with the issues I requested help on.
Please accept my Membership cancellation and do-not charge me for Services not received - or accepted.
Thank you.
