Blocked or stuck channels on your TV

When a channel is blocked or goes out, it means that the signal from the broadcast source to your TV is interfering. This can be caused by a number of factors, including weather conditions, physical obstructions such as buildings blocking the line of sight between the transmitter and receiver, or faulty equipment.

The most common cause of blocked or jammed channels is a weak signal. This can happen when the signal strength drops below what is needed for stable communication between the transmitter and the receiver, resulting in pixelation, freezing or complete loss of the channel.

To solve this problem, try reorienting the antenna or, if possible, moving it closer to the window. Also, check for objects that may block the signal, such as trees or large metal objects. If you live in an area with a lot of tall buildings or other structures, consider using a higher strength antenna to increase the signal strength.

If none of these measures work, contact your local TV service provider to see if there is anything they can do to help you improve reception. If the problem is particularly severe or difficult to diagnose, professional help may be needed.

By following these steps, you should be able to restore your channels quickly!
