I have been having an odd problem with my TV.
Perhaps someone here will have a suggestion or get a laugh.

This is a Sony 32 inch TV bought 'new' in 2012 for $330.
Model: KDL-32BX330

I don't have cable or satellite.
All shows are free thru the airwaves.

At least 6 times over the last 4 Months, I will be watching TV and this is what happens.
The screen/picture will lock-up(freeze) and the sound will keep repeating like a vinyl record that's skipping.
I have to shut the TV OFF and turn back ON and every thing works good / till the next time.

The really strange thing is: It always has happened during the same commercial, every time.
The commercial is for selling metal buildings.

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=lin...amp;FORM=VRDGAR

The only clue I can give you is of another problem with this TV.
I did the scan to pick up all the available channels in my area (about 20).
Over the next Weeks/Months, as I scroll thru the available channels, the TV will stop at channels that I don't pick up.
I then have to go into the channel selection and remove them.

I think I'll try unplugging it and then again scanning for channels.

Don't think that's a TV issue, personally. If it's only that commercial, I would hazard a guess that there's something wrong with the commercial itself.

OP here,
That could be.
I have a powered rabbit ears antenna next to the TV.

TVs are little computers and it sounds like there might be something in this commercial that is causing the TV to crash.

I am also a "antenna tv" person too and have also have periodic artifacting going on as well. I don't know if I am close to One Step Beyond however. Gives me a reason to get some work done.

Perfect example of the Russians trying to persuade you that you need to buy a metal building. See how they have infiltrated your mind?

Look to see if there is a firmware update for your TV. Something is locking it up. The signal might be week, but it still shouldn't crash the TV.

Could it be a codec issue in the TV software ? You may want to see if there is a issue fixed by an update for the TV.

must be a broadcasting issue or the way that commercial was recorded and programmed. with cable/satellite the broadcast is 100% digital you're picking up airwaves so there is a digital to analog conversion going on with that commercial and your tv isn't happy with it for some reason. I don't think you'd run into a problem if you were using a digital to analog tv converter, Walmart sells a few. are you?

OP here,
I do not have a converter box.
Any converting is built into the TV.

My other Sony TV does NOT have this problem.
So the problem must be in the TV some where.

I just thought this was an unusual problem for a TV.

Is the firmware on your TV user upgradeable? If so, are you running the latest version?
