We can only get 3 channels. How to fix this?
The tv has an analog tuner only (NTSC); so it will only get low power stations that have not switched to digital natively. Do you have the tv connected to a digital to analog converter or another set-top tuner (or a tuner in your computer)? If not, then you need to get one, then see my additional comments.
What type of antenna do you use? Is it pointed in the direction for the stations you want to see? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for details - just plug in your location. antennaweb is very conservative in the channel list that will be provided, even though the site assumes an external antenna. tvfool will list the color (strength guideline) for the antenna that is most likely to get a given channel in your area.
If the signal is split between multiple tv's you may need an amplifier in the system.
I wish that I could be of more help.
(please note that if you use a computer as a source for the tuner signal, you will be limited to the VGA connection unless you get a converter or your video card can output the signal in a format other than RGB. Thus even if the computer has DVI or HDMI ports, it cannot be directly connected to the TV for most systems.)

My plasma t.v model lnr328wx
I don't know if your using an antenna or other source but one quick test to see if your TV can display is to push the display or menu function. If your screen stays black then your TV has a problem and needs serviced. If your screen shows a menu then you may have a problem with the source video.
Try to elaborate more on your hook-up, it can be most helpful in solving display problems.

This is repairable, but I really wouldn't recommend it. The dealer price on this panel is $457.63. Once you figure labor costs you are probably in the neighborhood of $600 if not more.
Unless you really like this particular TV I think you would do better to just buy a new one for the $100 difference.

One side of my tv gets dim and out of focus it is a samsung. At times it works fine
back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.
