Problems With your TV Signal? It Could be Storm Damage

TV Signal

Over the past few months, there have been several severe storms across the UK, unfortunately leaving many people with issues with their TV signal. You may notice that your picture comes and goes, breaks up, or sometimes doesn’t work, which can be extremely frustrating.

Here are some of the reasons you may be having issues after a storm.


Misaligned Satellite Dishes

Satellite dishes can move because of high wind or severe rainfall, which can mean the TV signal is no longer received correctly or as well as before. Older satellite dishes can also become misaligned by average amounts of wind if the bolts have loosened over the years.

A correctly installed satellite dish is aligned to maximise the signal on three different planes, using a satellite alignment tool. Adjustments of only a few millimetres can make a massive difference to the quality of your signal as the signal bounces from your home or place of business into space and back again.

If your satellite has become misaligned, an aerial professional such as A Clearer Picture can fix this for you. We have high-quality satellite alignment tools used to position your dish perfectly, to ensure you get the best TV signal possible.


Aerial Breakages

High winds can also cause aerial breakages and no aerial results in no TV signal. These can sometimes be repaired or may need replacement depending on the extent of the damage.

Our team can inspect your aerial damage and determine whether a repair can be carried out or a spare part fitted to rectify the issue. If not, we will recommend that you get a new aerial and can help advise on the best one for your needs and then supply and install it as quickly as possible.


Cable Damage

High winds, severe rainfall, and other extreme weather can cause damage to cables, especially older ones, and this can also affect your television signal. Cables can come loose or entirely disconnected in inclement weather, resulting in a patchy signal or none at all.

A Clearer Picture who can locate and then repair or replace damaged cables, check connections, and get your television working as it should, as quickly as possible, so you can get back to watching the programmes and events that you love.
