LED Lights and TV Interference

Some models of LED light globes may cause interference to television and digital radio reception. This may present as a sudden loss of signal or picture quality in a residence or neighbouring residences where LED lights are installed – usually in the evening when everyone starts putting the lights on.

A Simple test to perform before replaceing yout antenna or calling in a sparky  is to switch your LED lights off while viewing the affected television channel. If your television signal immediately returns to normal this will provide a very strong indication of whether the LED globe(s) is the source of the interference. Bare in mind – that the source of interference may be coming from the neighbours – so check with them aswell.

If the LEDs are the problem consider returning them to the place of purchase or contact the manufacturer directly. IF this is not an option – Ring us for a solution. It may be as simple as relocating your antenna.
