If it only happens while watching an incoming signal from the cable company and not a DVD playing,
I went through this too on a rear projection HD TV.
If you have any splitters on the line to the TV eliminate as many branches to other devices as possible. They cause a drop in signal strength which is the problem. Make sure the cable is RG6 others are too weak to carry a good signal.
After going through many splitters and taking other things off I got a better signal. But it came down to the cable companys box out by the street had corroded metal components and when they changed that, the problem cleared and was even able to add all devises back to my signal splitter.
If is happening on a satellite dish then check and clean or replace cable connectors.

Ihave Bushldc 26" T.V. and

The most common cause of that is signal break up causing firstly "blocking" of the picture and audio drop out. Heavy clouds can also cause signal deteriation as does heavy rain.
Hope that helps.

My new television keeps saying no signal or the picture breaks up sometimes its fine all other t.vs in house ok but this one is in new extension

No signal or weak signal would indicate that there is a problem with the continuity of the coak antenna cable.

Most times in mu8lti installations there is a splitter somewhere that couples all the Tv's to the antenna. Check this connection as it is often the source of many NO SIGNAL problems

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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.

Just getting fuzz, no picture or sound

check that the coax cable is complete and has no internal breaks. get a new piece and even paring both ends to wire you should get pic and sound even if its not clear. then attach new plugs and connect. Also check that the outside cable is still connected. If iit goes up into the roof check mice or rats have not chewed the cable.
Even a rabbits ears antenna should be able to oick up some signal even in a poor reception area.

Sometimes if it snot an antenna problem select rescan on the remote to check for signals

High pitch screech w/no signal

is this a picture tube type of tv? big in back? If so, it could be the tube/circuit short.

If it flatpanel, it could be a bad capacitor in the DM or "Y" board or even possibly faulty power supply. Further testing will be necessary
