has anyone here ever experienced this problem?
have intermittent problem on only one TV channel, sometimes reception is perfect, then reception will instantly degrade to poor quality picture/snow/poor color, is VHF channel 6. problem comes and goes. just annoying. started 2 months ago.
when reception instantly goes to poor, I can use the tuner of a VCR and the picture is perfect when that channel is viewed through channel 3 of the TV.
upon suspecting the TV tuner, I opened the shielded box that the cable enters, the insides are only a bunch of coils and what appears to be a crystal component.
TV is Akai CFT2791, have been looking for a schematic or service manual to download online but have been unsuccessful.
akaiusa.com at one time had support for this TV on their ws but apparently no longer.
any ideas would be appreciated.
