You may have to try another antenna. There are some channels in my area that simply can't be received no matter what is used.

In fringe areas; where signal strength is too weak, this should happen. It sounds that, you're using an Ariel booster along with a splitter. Just connect one TV at a time, without using the splitter. If picture break occurs even this time, adjust the the signal strength of the booster [either low or high], and check whether it can help you. Keep in mind, iv the signal strength is too low, or set to too high, this fault will happen, as AGC [automatic Gain Control] circuit inside the set won't function properly. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Picture breaks up/freezes weak signal message,

Constantly? Once in a while? If it does it without ever working, it sounds like the tuner is bad. I would not try servicing anything inside the TV. They're just not made for that anymore. I did it for 20 years. You could connect an external antenna, doing the scan, and see it if works that way to rule out a cable problem, or having the cable co. check the dBmv level.

Picture freezes or breaks up

free view or other device. freeview signal is not strong enough. if you have a booster on aerial change it for a new one. after awhile they weaken the signal and not boost the signal to the tv.also check cables. and aerial if looks damaged.

Picture Freezing on Flat Screen TV

The symptoms you describe are indicative of a weak signal. If all your connections and cables are in good order, then you may need to either adjust your aerial or place a booster into the system.
If you have had no problems up until recently, it would suggest to me that something has changed to cause this. The normal problems are corroded connections at the aerial, or the aerial has rotated due to wind etc.
If you choose to put a booster into the aerial system, put it as near to the aerial as possible.
If you already have a booster in place, is it working?

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.

Because you are receiving digital transmissions, if the signal is too weak your picture will break up and pixilate. In the days of analougue you would just get a snowy picture. If you are getting the channels, you might want to consider investing in a booster and a digital antenna. Install the booster as near to the antenna as possible to get the best out of it.

Sony V lcd 32 inch losing digital channels and after doing a resetting scan it is ok for about 30 mins.... then screen image breaks up totally and message 'weak signal' shows on screen. Help,please.

You answered the question in your question.
''weak signal' means exactly that, however it can also mean the signal is too strong.

If you have a booster installed into the ariel remove it, if not, try one. Make sure the TV is directly connected to the ariel, not via a DVD recorder or any other devices which require an ariel input.

Sony tv's have very sensitive tuners installed so its just a case of making your aprticualr settings compatible.

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...

RCA DTA800B1 converter box - Works great for 15 min. then quits.

I would suggest to return it because it should work as intended without dropping the signal.
It would be a good idea to add a signal booster to keep a good signal strength.
