Our LG television seems to not be processing signal properly, the picture and sound is very slow and sounds distorted. When connected the playstation comes up with no signal. What could be wrong?

a few issues , you need to use the appropriate cables, for example , play station needs an HDMI only ,make sure whatever input the hdmi is in , , thats the input you use fot the play station .
it sounds like your using multiple wiring , im guessing because of the lack of info giving on your help request ,. make sure your using digital cabling for each device your hooking up. also , are you using a sound system , a tuner .... you should be using an HDMI or 2nd a component cable , those are the 2 best , all others are going to cause audio issues. give me more info and ill be able to tell you exactly how to fix your problem. good luck ..

My signal strength is really bad on my TVs. Should I buy a new antenna?

The more tvs you have hooked up to the same antenna, the lower the signal strength. Therefore you should get an antenna amplifier or get a new antenna with a stronger signal.

I can receive FM stations properly. I cannot receive AM stations at all. Only a static sound. I disconnected the AM antenna leads and used an Ohm Meter. The meter read full continuity when I touched...

you may be in an area where am stations don't come in,, am uses straight lines of frequency where FM uses a modulated signal, which travels much farther, I bought a antenna signal booster from radio shack for a few dollars , and was able to get the stations, some pretty static filled though, but the more local ones came in ok, another thing to check is that the unit is plugged into a grounded receptacle ,

Installing a new Sony radio/ cd player. Several post reference an internal "antenna booster" but cannot find anything about which wires to supply power to this booster. Please help, can't get...

here is some free advice, antenna boosters simply amplify the radio signal AND the static so there is no increase in sound quality, plus they pick up all that nice spark plug noise. the upshot is that if you spend money to buy one you will find yourself taking it back out and tossing it or pawning it off on some ****** via eBay.

Tv accoustic solutions bought from argos 2yrs old . press remote blue light comes on and nothing happens wont go on a station or give a screen to play exbox

without knowing which set you have, its hard to be specific, however, from experience, the switch mode power supply will give this signal to tell you that it is not happy driving one or more of the boards attached to it ( ie/ the board is drawing too much current ). This is a safety feature to prevent further damage to the set, and will require examination by a competent engineer... sorry cant help more, but diagnosis shouldnt cost much as this is a common fault, and will generally call for replacement of the offending panel - anywhere between 50 and 200 pounds :-(

Bravia 46 works fine from a dvd, but on tv, the picture keeps breaking up with coloured patches obliterating parts of the picture and the sound misses bits. The old CRT tv works fine when plugged in to the...

You may want to try a signal booster,or a different arial.Not sure if your old CRT or arial was digital ,but you should have a tools button on your remote or a diagnotic option in your menu that will show signal strenght.I have a Terk HDTVo.It is a small bomarang shaped antenna that pics up stations 50 miles north (direction it is pointing)and the only issue is when storms roll thru.I have added a motorola 484095-001-00 signal booster and that has solved most of the issues with the farthest stations plus added a few more from different directions.You could also add a antenna and if your original arial is run with coax just use a diplexer to combine the signals.Well hope this helps and good luck.

Bush TV Model No 5693D

Try using the source button to switch through different inputs.

If that does not work try connecting a signal booster to the aerial, they cost about ten pounds at Argos.

Frame periodically freezes on Vizio 37'' TV

Your statement is confusing. Why? because you stated " This tv is hooked up to an Antenna with a Booster", then you said it's connected to Cable Tv. I will answer this both ways for you.
If your on an Outside Antenna or Rabbit Ears, even with a booster, if the signal is not good prior to getting to the antenna then a booster only amplifies what it see's and that may be as we call it, "garbage". In a HDTV the freezing can happen when that situation is at hand, however if you are on Cable and we know the signal is clean ( we hope? ) then the problem is with the software in the set and should be looked at by a service center, or if it's right out of the box then I would exchange it.
In digital technology there's no maybe, it's yes or no! If the signal is not what's required, then you get what your experiencing now, IF, there's nothing wrong with the set, and there may be. I just repaired another brand doing the same thing and it was the Main Control Module. So, I hope I helped you in isolating the problem. Please keep me posted...

Not getting signal for some of the channels in the area.

What is the source of your signal? ie cable, sat, or antenna?
If it is rabbit ears or antenna you may not have a strong enough signal.. With digital you have to have a preaty strong signal or it will come back with "weak signal or channel not found" You could try a signal booster.

Try turning off the tv and unplugging it for one minute, if that doesnt resolve the issue, look into gettnig a converter box, or a signal booster to help. The tuner's in those SB model sharp televisions are not worth a penny and they need a very strong signal to be able to interpret all of your stations without problems. good luck 2 u
