What can be more frustrating than having your newly purchased HD LED television display no output once you finish installing it? After all the time you took to pick a good television model, having it delivered to your home and finally setting up the equipment to enjoy your late-night show, you are greeted with a blue or black screen saying that the television cannot find any signal to display. While it may be hard to contain your anger at this point, you won’t be able to find a solution without calming down; do that first. Once you are ready, it is time to take a look at possible fixes that might work for you. Installing a new television can be a lot work if you needed to buy a separate stand or mount the television on the wall yourself, so there is a chance that you have forgotten a small detail here or there that now makes your television not display anything. Go through the following in order to save some time:
Check the Connections
The very first thing to do is check whether all relevant cables are plugged in correctly. Even a slightly loose cable is enough to make your television display an error, so check each cable by hand to see whether it is fitted tightly. If using older cables, you may even want to swap to alternative ones to isolate damaged or cracked cables.
See Whether You Are Getting a Signal
If there is no problem with the connections, your problem may be a lack of sufficient signal strength. Sometimes, this can affect a single channel only, while at other times all of your TV channels will be affected. In any case, you will need to see whether your antenna in Northern Beaches is installed properly: make sure to read the guidelines in the instruction manual and check the troubleshooting section to see possible fixes for signal-related problems.
Call a Technician to Come Over to Your Home
If you don’t seem to be able to find a single cause for your issues, it may be a good idea to give up and instead call a technician to come over. He will also take care of your TV antenna installation if you haven’t already done so, plus he may be able to provide you with some useful advice regarding the best way to adjust and tune your TV for the best viewing experience.
Finally, if the technician himself is not able to find a solution, you may want to check your TV to see whether it is faulty. If you have your warranty (and you should have one if you bought your TV brand new), it is time to contact the shop and get a replacement ordered soon.
