#4774330 - 06/01/18 11:02 AM Very Odd TV Problem

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,
No, everyone I know has cable or satellite.
I'm just getting free TV thru the airwaves.

Id say poor reception poor error concealment. Just like CD. Digital is terrible done wrong.

Need UHF on roof with rotator.

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?
