Jack Antenna

I installed a Jack Antenna about a year ago. It worked fine until about 3 weeks ago. No power getting to the sur-lok . No lights are on. None of the TV's getting any signal. The power is supplied through the coax.
Anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix the problem. I checked for burned out fuses but don't see any. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I had a bad connector under the roof penetration. If yours if like mine, you will have to remove the antenna raising and lowering device to find it on the roof under the mounting plate. Since I replaced the connectors, my Jack antenna has performed great.

If your coaxial cable goes through a booster, the booster may have gone bad. My booster has a switch and a small red LED light comes on when it is switched on. If you take the booster panel out of the electrical box it will have a 12 volt supply going to it, test it here to see if you are getting power.
