LG TV - TV Signals

Sometimes external factors like cable connections, antenna or dish locations, and even weather conditions can impact the quality of your TV signal on your LG TV. Depending on your type of TV service, here are a few common troubleshooting tips.


HD TV Antenna Signal Reception

Your antenna's signal strength can be affected by a number of things, including geographic location, trees, buildings, and the distance from the broadcast source.

If you are experiencing a low signal, adjust the orientation of the antenna itself or change its location in the room. For ideal indoor antenna reception, place it as high as possible, near a window, and away from other electronic devices like the TV itself, computers, DVD players, etc.

After you move your antenna, you may need to perform another channel scan.


Cable Signal Reception

A few things can impact your cable TV signal, including loose coaxial cable connections, the quality of your cable line, how many cable splitters you have, and the connection signal itself coming from your cable provider. If you're experiencing a weak signal, check to make sure that both ends of your coaxial cable are screwed in firmly.

If you are using a cable splitter, check the connections there, too. Cable splitters tend to degrade the quality of cable transmissions, so try to avoid them if you can.

If you're still having trouble, contact your cable provider. They can likely help you fix the problem by either resetting your cable box or addressing the actual cable signal going to your home.


Satellite Signal Reception

A few things can impact your satellite TV signal. Your dish's location is critical in picking up a satellite signal. Obstructions such as trees, buildings, and other large objects may diminish the quality of your signal.

Also, sometimes weather can get in the way. Rain and snowstorms can, from time to time, impact your signal. Check to make sure you don't have any snow or ice build-up on your satellite dish, as this can potentially change the position of your dish and interfere with your signal.

Just like cable TV service, if you're still having issues, you should contact your satellite TV provider directly.
