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.

SOURCE: when playing a DVD, gets sound but no picture,message ''no signal''

If you are using a Scart connection, ensure the scart is sitting fully home from the back of the TV & the rear of your DVD. Best thing is usually to pull it out & then push it back in. This is usually caused because the Scart has come loose.

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.

May be the box or a poor connection or cable---check those first and if possible try the box on another set.

THIS PROBLEM IS NOT LOGICAL-SIGNAL STRENGHTS HAVE BEEN CHECKED AND WAS OK BUT THE PICTUE KEEPS BREAKING DIFFERENT ON 3 DIFERENT TVS IN THE HOUSE BUT WHEN I REMOVE ANY ONE OF THEM AND CONNECR IT INTO O


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 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?

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.

No antenna signal nor found channels for my area.


You'll need a better antenna to solve your problem. With the new digital broadcasting, signal strength is everything. With analog, a weak signal would give you a watchable but fuzzy picture. A weak signal with digital gives you nothing, or possibly a picture that freezes up or breaks into blocks (pixellation). The only cure is a better antenna, either an amplified indoor antenna or something outside.

Sad to say, there's no guarantee that will work. If you live too far from the station, or have hills, buildings or other obstructions that block the signal, you just may not be able to pick up some channels. In some areas people have found they get no reception at all.

At www.antennaweb.org there's a tool that will tell you what stations are around your area and how far. It's designed to help you figure out what kind of antenna you might need.

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.
