While watching cable TV, the set will hold the audio of the channel i'm watching but a distorted b/w image of a local station will take over the screen. Sometimes that images freezes. While watching a DVD, again the audio will work perfectly but the image will freeze. At one time I actually ejected the DVD from the player and the frozen image still stayed on my screen. Anyone know what's wrong and if its worht repairing?
I think I already answered this question but here it is again. Your problem while watching cable tv sounds like a bad tuner with little or no adjacent channel rejection. The problem with the DVD and I think to some extent the cable sounds like a video processing problem. This unit has digital video circuits and could easily cause the problem you describe. The easiest and probably the cheapest solution would be to replace the board with a refurbed unit. Two companies which sell refurbed boards are PTS Electronics, Bloomington, IN (www.ptsinc.com) and Tri-State Module, Evansville, IN (www.tristatemodule.com). Good luck.
