Scamp TV antenna

My Scamp amplified TV antenna has quit working. Has anyone had experience with these, or suggestions as to what may be wrong? It is a 2002 16'. The little green light is on so there is power to the amplifier, but there is no signal getting through to the TV.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, checked them all. Also tried new lead in wire from panel to TV. I am guessing there is a fault in the amplifier. May have to dig out the old multimeter.

My antenna booster did not work from the factory. I corrected the problem by replacing the electrical splices on the 12v line and all is well. The issue with the factory crimp is one pair of the wires being spliced is too small for the splice splines to cut through the insulation and make the connection.
Sounds this may not apply to your issue but it's a fairly common problem with the method that Scamp uses to make their connections to the amplifier.
