Question about Flat Panel Televisions
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?
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.
