    I've had a problem...

    I now get no sound from the Freeview, and a message comes up the Pioneer plasma 435XDE, in a box titled "plasma display":

    "The ariel has short-circuited.
    Check the cable and plug in the AC power.
    "


    :eek:

    I haven't ever watched the Freeview yet... but it was always mainly for upstairs anyway, but I don't have the TV's set up there yet, so unsure if the problem would be prevailent upstairs too.

    Sky is fine, and has sound.

    How can I fix this??

    1. The aerial cable comes from the roof, across inside my ceiling, into the garage inside the wall, and into the Pioneer Plasma's media box (which is also the Freeview).
    Plugged into ANT IN.

    2. I then have another aerial cable, plugged into ANT OUT, and that is plugged back into the Plasma's media box where is says ANT.

    Which one do you reckon has shortcircuited?? I certainly hopes its not the MAIN one, as that can never ever be changed now!

    uh oh! :rolleyes:

    Your Plasma screen is obviously confused. Ariel is a brand of washing powder.

    The aerial is plugged into ANT IN. Unplug it and see what happens.

    Thanks sorted now. After unplugging all aerial cables, nothing happened.
    Had to turn the power off at the socket, and then it was all sorted.

    Strange tho!
