Stereo and Tv problem

I keep getting everything working only to have something new quit. My Unit for the TV that changes it from Cable to Ant. quit and only works on cable. This has been a while and I just did not notice because we don't watch tv much. The light on the unit is out and I can't find a fuse. The dash radio just quit working and I checked the ouside radio and it still works, but I replaced the fuse in the closet and nothing happened. I also pulled the unit and could not spot an in line fuse behind it. Any ideas where to go next? I considered just having the stereo upgraded and let them find the problem since this one barely worked to begin with.

Thanks for any help or advice

I have a small wall mounted TV amplifier unit that has a small red LED on it and a little black knob turning this knob turns the TV ant amplifier up and down in power BUT pushing it in changes the signal routing from cable to the ant. If the little red light is out then push on that little black knob and see if the red light comes back on. If it does then you TV will work again off the antenna.

David.......The radio is a Magnadyne and there are very few people that got them to work correctly. Our friends are currently having theirs replaced under their extended warranty. When you pulled the radio, did you look at the back of it. I gave my Magnadyne away a long time ago, but most of the radios now have a blade type fuse that plugs into the body of the radio.

It's sound like you're also talking about your Winegard switchbox with the red light on the left corner. My light went out, but the unit still worked. Make sure all of the cables on the back of the switchbox are tight. They can easily work loose. They should be snugged with a small wrench to keep them from coming loose.
