Hi,

This problem is caused by poor signal reception and there are several possible causes for this.

1) First check that there is no problem with the cables connecting your cable box or antenna to your television. The connectors should be fully engaged into the units and the connectors on the cable themselves must have good contact to the wire within the cabling. It is also important to check that connectors have not been shorted by the inner core of the cable coming into contact with the outer sheathing wire on the coaxial cable.

2) If you use a powered signal booster make sure that it is fully operational and properly connected.

3) If you are receiving terrestrial signals you may have a problem with your antenna being waterlogged or having shifted on its axis causing a loss of signal alignment. If your receive satelite broadcasts your dish may require realignment.

4) It may help to retune your television by entering the menu and selecting the automatic tuning function.

5) You may be suffering from weak or compromised signal in your area and this will require a signal booster to be installed.

6) Finally the tuner on your television may be faulty and if this is the case it will require service attention.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

My Polaroid FLM-3232 does not display over air HDTV channels


There is no such thing as a 'digital antenna;' any antenna with sufficient gain and bandwidth will receive whatever signals there are available.
You may have to change the input source via your set's menu so it is looking at the antenna input; it may be set to cable currently.

Toshiba TV fails to recognize HDMI input


If the tv does all those symptoms but after some seconds the tv works and stays doing the job. THen the tv has a slow microprocessor to recognice the different resolutions or video inputs.

But if the tv cannot do anything and stay aout of signal forever. send the tv to the waranty. (no waranty? you have to use the component input instead to have digital signal reproduced

At random a black retangular box appears on the screen


Go into the TV's closed-caption settings and turn off captioning. You'll find it's set for "text" mode right now. What's happening is that in text mode, the set blanks out the part of the screen where the text will go but there isn't any. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast you don't see anything. With the captions turned off the box will go away.
