Winegard Omni Failure

Recommended Posts

Our Winegard Omni HDTV antenna has failed.  


when turning on the amplifier the red led blinks on then off.

Winegard tech support had me disconnect the antenna lead to the amplifier and press the on button.  The amp stays on.  So they said the fault is in the coax between the antenna and the amplifier.  

For now I’ll live without the hdtv off air antenna as I’m on the road and can’t fully assess the issue.


There is a note in the antenna installation manual that says:


“Warning: Once the head and pedestal are connected, the head cannot be removed without incurring damage.“


When I get home in February I’ll repost the end of this story.

Those connections "look" tight.  It would be helpful to know if a single run was made from there to the antenna itself.  And, exactly how/where is the other end of the coax connected to the antenna.

Good luck


p.s.  there's been nothing much to watch on TV anyway since Army lost to Navy this year 😭

Tough loss to Navy but a great showing against Missouri last night in their bowl game winning it in the last three seconds!  Mike
