TV doesn’t recognize antenna

Hi,

I bought a flat screen antenna and hooked it up to my tv a few months ago and it worked great. Then one day it stopped working.  So I exchanged the antenna for another one and this one doesn’t work either.  I’ve tried it with other tvs and it works so I know it’s a tv issue and not the antenna or the placement of the antenna.  I have tried unplugging my tv, moving the antenna, checked to make sure everything is tight enough, but every time I go to scan it still says “0 channels available”, even when I do it a few times in a row.  I noticed that it doesn’t recognize the antenna as one of the inputs.  How do I fix this?  Thanks!

I use an antenna to. I have every channel my list says I have and if it doesn't I add to list. My cats recently broke my antenna in half so I taped it back together lol and it still works fine.
Sometimes channels blackout and say no signal when they are updating whatever channel it maybe. I don't mind antenna but I sure do miss my Xfinity cable channels like Travel channel and TV Land.
I live in apt building so can't put antenna on roof or dish. I have Samsung TV and phone only buy Samsung, I have no idea what half the stuff on menu is and my next TV will probably be a Sart TV and idk if I like that idea I'm old school. Is there a big difference in regular TV antennas that connect to your TV? Not the roof type

When is the last time the tv saw the antenna? It just has to get reacquainted
