It sounds like your using Rabbit Ears or Outside Antenna. If you are your going to have to improve the signal level. If you are on cable then first call your Cable provider and have them come out and check the signal level. Then, if neither is the problem, you'll have to take it into a service center to have it properly diagnosed.

We get garbled sound on new sharp aquos +Q TV 60 inch


If you are using an antenna for input, then you are probably partially losing sync with the signal. You may want to adjust the antenna or try a signal booster. If you have input from a cable box, check the HDMI cable, possibly replacing it with a new one. If you're using a cable box with RCA cables, (Composite or component inputs) then the problem is most likely with the cable box loosing sync with the channel feed.

My picture and keep on breaking up on some channel


If you have a good picture on some channels and the picture breaks up on others , it could be the input signal. What is the source of the input signal; i.e. cable, satellite, antenna???? Do you have a cable box? The problem may be with the box or with the provider's signal.

My Magnavox MDR515H HDD recorder usually records the programs perfectly. But sometimes the tuner loses the cable signal and the playback goes blank during the recording. I have encountered this a couple...


Actually sounds like the feed for your HDD is going south on you. I would get another recorder to verify this scenario. Or, you could supply a local signal to the HDD to verify the problem. Use a VCR, DVD player, or the like to check it this way. The outputs from most local sources will be copy-protected, but you'll have Some signal.

Viewsonic N3250W- turns on, the screen flickers on then its black


This could be a problem with the tv's memory. Try resetting the TV. Unplug the unit for a few seconds (10-60). Then restore the TV to the factory default settings. Viewsonic has changed it's menus at intervals so you may have to check your manual. It may be Menu > Setup > Memory Recall or Menu > Options > Restore Default (or something slightly different). From there, click enter, use the right or left arrow to select YES, hit enter. Leave the menu system (Menu twice). Then hit Menu > Channels and rescan all channels.

An alternative cause of the problem may be a weak signal - check that your antenna is pointing right at the station and is the correct type to get the signal at the distance you are from the station. (Usually a weak signal would also have the audio breaking up but weird things can happen.)

I hope this helps.

Watch tv properly with JVC DVD off


Some philips tv's have a built in aerial amplifier, perhaps if you bought a digital aerial booster it will improve the picture quality.

Most of the channels breaking up despite auto retuning


could be one of a few things,
low signal strength, aerial out of line with transmitter.
bad coax connections losing signal strength.
coax broken inside, or old and not low loss.
Get the aerial checked for direction, half a degree out of line over a few miles and you will lose a lot of signal strength, as will old coax (aerial cable) and if you are using an unshielded coax you could be losing signal strength through the cable itself. Replace the connecters and try to use a straight run of cable instead of having joins in it as these joins, even if using connecters, will cause a weak signal. If yiu are running more than one tv off your aerial, invest in a booster.

Virgin +1, Dave Ja Vu and Yesterday break up so


All digital channels need good signals from the aerial. Have you got a good one? Even with a good aerial the cable from it can cause problems. For instance a lot of people have old type coax cable (often brown in colour) and if you have it will lose a lot of signal. For best results replace it with FT100 cable, the same type used for satellite dishes. Lastly bad plugs can cause problems.

Lose sound on sony bravia 40v4100 lcd tv


if you are using an hd cable box it might be just that. what happens is if the cable company is doing work around your area or some one on your block adds another cable line to there house you end up losing signal for your box. now if you pull the power plugg and let it reboot that could either fix the problem temporarly or not at all. you might need an amplifier hooked up to your cable lines or a new cable box all together. contact your cable provider and ask for some one to test your signal quality. i am also assuming that your not getting the same problem when your watching a dvd. i hope this helps you

Panasonic SC-PT850w sound cuts out


Are you watching 10HD off the air from an antenna? You are losing video and audio intermittently, which may just be indicative of a weak signal. Does your TV have a signal meter?
