Question about Sony KDL40EX400 40 in. HD-Ready TV
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "pause", but if you mean the picture freezes or pixellates and the sound cuts outs then it's caused by a bad signal - know as "Digital Cliff Edge" - see attached image.
If you are using an aerial, check all your cables are connected properly and that your aerial is securely mounted, pointing in the right direction and none of the elements have become detached - particularly the dipole where the co-axial cable attaches.
If you are using a dish, again check all your cables are connected properly and that your dish is securely mounted. If the bolts are loose and you can move the dish by hand, then it's possible that your dish has moved from the correct alignment. You will ideally need a signal meter to correct this although it can be done by trial and error.
You should also note that dishes are susceptible to signal-loss during bad weather, particularly strong wind, heavy rain and snow. If you are only losing picture in bad weather, there isn't much you can do apart from making sure the dish is rigidly fixed.
If your aerial/dish is OK, try replacing your fly-leads (the short section from the wall socket to the TV) and/or the cable from the aerial/dish to your TV.
Hope this helps.
