Sound breaking up on Chicago channel 38-2, 38-3, 38-4

I have a new LG52LG70 HDTV. I love it. I have just one problem. The sound breaks up channel 38-2, 38-3, 38-4. Channel 38-1 is okay. All other channels work very well. I have tested the antenna feed with other TVs and they all receive the above channel very well. I have a very strong signal for all channels. I live 40 miles from Chicago and have an outside Wiegard HD8200 antenna on a tower. All other TVs in the house receive the channel with any problems. I have tried retuning the channels, but that does not solve the problem. Is there an update for the software on this TV?

SOURCE: My TV Sharp 26 SB1 LCD PBS channel breaks up

Do any other OTA channels break up on this TV? Look through your setup options menu for a TV reset (memory or restore default or a similar command) . Do the reset and exit the menus (save the action on most TVs); then return and rescan the OTA channels.

On a different brand of TV this worked. The channel had broken up for several weeks; the reset was used when the channel finally became totally corrupted (no video on one sub-channel, no audio on the other).

Some tuners need a stronger signal to be stable; you may need an amplifier on your antenna.

I hope one of these ideas helps.

My picture and keep on breaking up on some channel


If you have a good picture on some channels and the picture breaks up on others , it could be the input signal. What is the source of the input signal; i.e. cable, satellite, antenna???? Do you have a cable box? The problem may be with the box or with the provider's signal.

I'd call the cable company, it sounds like you have an issue with the cable box.

Picture sixe reduced and picture breaks up with converter box


You can change the way the channels can be displayed/viewed by a video setting, consult manual. When pic breaks into pixels and sound goes it's usually a reception problem so you'll have to adjust the antenna facing a direction that makes that channel come in clearly. It helps to experiment with positions and antennas.

The tuner is bad. Could also be the video process, since the hi-def is decoded there
