How To Repair TV Converter Box

Is your TV converter box acting up and you want to learn how to repair it? If so, then you have come to the right place. A TV converter box is not one of the easiest items to fix in the world. However, there are some things you could do to attempt to repair it. No one wants to be without their television for an extended amount of time. Fortunately, all it takes is a little time to begin using your converter box once again.

  1. Check Antenna. Sometimes, the antenna could be sending a bad signal to the TV converter box. It is best to adjust it until the picture shows clear. Also, make sure that the antenna compartment is not stripped. If the TV converter box still doesn't work after a few attempts, then it may be the TV converter box.
  2. Ensure that your TV is on the right channel. For some converter boxes to show, your home TV would have to be on either channel 3, channel 4, or on the Audio/Video input channel. Simply look in the back of your converter box. There will be a small, black slider. It will either be near the 3 or 4. Whichever number it may be near, is more likely the number channel you would have to consider for proper function.
  3. Make sure the converter box is turned on. Most converter boxes will turn off without any notice. Sometimes, troubleshooting a TV converter box could be as simple as turning it back on. This could mean that power-saving is turned on. If this is the issue, then see your TV converter box manual to turn power-saving off. There should be functions on the remote to be able to turn power-saving off.
