You might be waiting for the day when your favourite show will be telecasted on the TV, or you might be watching your favourite football match and chilling around on the weekend only to found out that your favourite show or match is being interrupted by the disrupted signals. So disappointing, right?
TVs are a piece of digital devices that can breakdown, crumble and produces poor image and sound quality due to attenuations caused by various factors. After all, your TV is your machine!
Instead of banging the top of the TV with your hands, hoping it would bring back the signals, you must call a TV reception repair professional. That makes more sense! Since they are highly familiar with the faults that can interrupt the signals because of their profound knowledge of electronics.
Several factors can affect your digital TV antenna reception that could be treated by TV reception repair professionals, and some of them are mentioned below-
1) The age and condition of your antenna- Antennas are sold each year, but most of the homeowners change or upgrade their antennas once after ten years. An expert would recommend you to change your antennas after five years since a lot can happen in a decade, for instance, a change of environment, construction in your locality and variations in the pollution levels can hugely impact the performance of your antenna. So, all these possibilities could arise if your antenna is a decade old and it is the right time to replace it with a new one.
2) Quality of antenna- New antennas are the same as the old antennas, but the only difference is that new antennas can focus the reception better to a particular location as desired. The advantage of new antennas is they can receive transmission frequencies once pointed to the appropriate direction. If you lack knowledge about the antennas, it is important to take help from your antenna expert that can choose the antenna that goes well with your TV, location and budget.
3) The way the antenna is set up- The placement of antenna can affect the reception of the signals. If the antenna is not set up correctly, then it won’t be able to receive strong signals; therefore, to receive the powerful signals, it must be oriented towards the transmission source. If the antenna is improperly placed, it will cause pixelated images comprising a weak signal. Usually the loose wires, improper cables and connections can also lead to faulty antenna set up. All this could be corrected with the help of an antenna expert.
4) Condition of cables and Wirings- Sometimes a poor reception can be caused due to the poor connection between your TV and antenna, which can affect your broadcast quality. Cables can sulk in summers due to overheating and contract in winters; besides, wear and tear could be caused by critters, affecting your TV signal.
