Internal lights and tv reception

Post by skyrakes on Sun Mar 15, 2015 4:41 pm

Anyone else having a problem with the internal lights and TV?

When I turn on my centre lights in the MH the TV picture goes wonkey. It does not happen on all the centre lights.
I am using the aerial supplied with the motor home. It is a digital aerial.
Thoughts please.

The 9W PL bulb is on the way out, maybe.

If the lamps are Lumo round dome ones (Crown), AS fit the version with the mini flourescent tubes not halogen G4 bulbs. In my Gloucester anyway. If they are failing they will give off radio emissions, and interfere with the tv.

It's an EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) problem. I don't know how common this particular problem is but EMC problems are incredibly common nowadays. Sometimes easy and sometimes an absolute pig to fix (no offence to innocent four legged creatures). hugegrins

I agree. All fluorescent lamps generate some level of interference and a faulty fluorescent tube (of any shape) is a likely culprit. I'd try repacing the tube(s) in the offending lamp first.

There is no such thing as a “Digital” aerial! just aerials, some better than others.

If the tube doesn't fix it, have there been any changes to you electrical system or wiring recently – even if not obviously connected to the lights or the TV?
