Losing Channel 3


Novice Member
Yesterday evening I was watching channel 4 on my 6 months old Samsung 42” tv and decided to have a look at Ch3. The picture appeared for about 10 seconds and then disappeared. Have tried lots of times since then but the same thing happens: picture appears and then disappears. No other channel is affected, only Ch3. If I swap over to Ch103 there is no problem and I can watch the programmes there. Advice would be much appreciated.

Probably a signal problem but my advice is just to forget about CH3 and continue watching 103 instead.
CH103 is the HD version of CH3 and should give you a sharper picture.

Thanks for the quick and very helpful reply. The difference is not only sharper but better in all respects. Will now try out the other channels too.
