Christine Brocklebank: There are no faults listed for the Wooburn transmitter (nothing for Chepping Wycomber either which you have posted under) so the fault is most likely within your aerial system. Start at the back of the TV and check that all cables and connectors are in tight and not damaged, then work back as far as you can safely access towards your aerial. Do not attempt to retune your TV as this will delete all your channels so you won't know when the fault has been fixed.

Our TV has no signal for any channel. We come under the Wooburn transmitter. Can you please tell me when this will be rectified? Thanks

StevensOnln1: have done as you say and still no signal. Apparently, there is a power cut to parts of Wooburn, although we are not affected. Could this affect the signal?. Thanks

Christine Brocklebank: If that power cut has taken the transmitter off air then you won't get anything. Best thing now is to check over the next few hours to see if it returns when power is restored to the area.
