More than likely the two are on the same circuit. Throe the breaker that runs the refridgerator and see if it also controls the TV as well. If it does try other receptacles to see if they have power to them now. If you find one that does you can plug the tv into that receptacle and throw the breaker back on to see if that soves the issue. I expect that it will. I have my fridge next to my tv seprated by about three feet and donot have any interference at all due to the difference in circuits. You may also want to check your grounds on the refridgerator itself and at the receptacle as well as this can also solve some inteference issues. Hope this solves your problem and thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have a problem with an interference pattern which appears on my TV when I turn on all components of my home theater. Please see below for details.

Hello, first thing I would try is swapping out he HDMI cables. One or more of the cables could be causing interference. Also you might opt to purchase HI speed HDMI Cables as to regular ones.
Standard HDMI Cable - This is a cable designed to handle 720p/1080i resolutions and capable of a total minimum bandwidth of 2.25 Gbps. Standard HDMI Cables can handle some of the HDMI features, but not all at the same time like a High Speed HDMI Cable can. The one feature it cannot support is the HDMI Ethernet Channel.

On the tuner, only A.M., there is a buzz when the T V is on. Any thoughts ?

Your TV is emitting radio wave interference. AM is very sensitive to this type of interference whether it is from your TV, CD player etc.

Most electronics will leak some interference. Some are better shielded than others and will emit less.

Try to move your am antenna further away from the TV.

Nothing but static on all bands

There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

TW cable remote does not work after Mitsubishi LCD TV turn on

Yes, try that. It is easy to do and doesn't cost anything. You've tried new batteries in the remote as well right? There are two types of remotes, IR (Infrared light LED is used) and RF (Radio Frequency). With an IR unit I do not see any way there can be interference as long as you don't have an IR lamp around the TV and TW DVR box. On the other hand, with RF, depending on where you live and other factors, there could well be RF interference. You'll have to locate the interference and remove it. In this day and age, things such as LED and CF light bulbs DO cause RF interference. If you use these kinds of lights in the room AND you know that the remote is an RF remote then try turning all the lights off in the room and try again.

The TV started turning itself off occasionally a

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

HDTV interfers with my Police scanner

It sounds like HD mode on the TV operates at a different frequency (refresh rate) that then causes interference to your nearby police scanner. There's not much you can do about this--the HDTV design cannot be modified.

Your best solution is to try moving the police scanner further away from the TV. I doubt there is any kind of barrier that you can place around the scanner that might block the interference (the "noise" given off by the TV is likely omnidirectional).

Lights out in the fridge side only

yes, and it should be covered under warranty. whirlpool has experienced problems with interference on this model . could have taken out one or both of these. control 2303805, and 2304056. tech must also install a ferrite insulator on control to filter interference and move the water valve wiring away from all other wires. use this info to get it fixed under warranty.
