It sounds like your tv is in text mode for the captions. Try going into the menu, and go into captions, and set it to off. That should solve the problem. If not, do U have a cable box? If U do, try the same approach with the cable box B4 concluding it's something wrong with the tv.

Saying that the problem is with your TV doesn't make any sense since your TV is fed from the cable box. Your TV doesn't know one channel from the next. If it had a problem it would effect all channels. You may not have enough signal to the INPUT of your cable box due to a problem on the pole or at your house or both. Insufficient signal can cause some digital channels to not get decoded properly by the cable box. The lower channels will show noise symptoms such as what you describe but they won't crap out altogether like the digital ones. Have a cable tech come out and measure the signals.
Do you have splitters in line with the cable anywhere? If there's any way to beef up the amount of signal getting to the cable box try it.
