I am a qualified DTV antenna technician. We recently

Hi,I am a qualified DTV antenna technician. We recently replaced a masthead amplifier and antenna cable (from antenna to masthead amp.) due to birds having eaten/damaged the cable. This is a shared antenna system between 2x villas. We retested TV outlets and antenna fly leads in both villas upon complesion of work and has successful results - (60+dB, MER 29+, SNR 8+) - we use high quality Rover meters and Matchmaster Amplifiers.Both villas test identical.Villa A now has perfect receptionVilla B is now claiming we have damaged her Toshiba TV as all her channels (now) pixelate.I have revisited the villa, performed a retune checked the antenna input on her tv for damage.. And my meter shows no issues with the reception either, it also show a stable DTV picture on my meter... However the customer Toshiba TV still pixilates on all channels and she assures me her TV was perfect before we carried out the maintenance. I don't know how this could be the case as the previous cable connecting the antenna to the amp was completely shot (looked like a dog had chewed it)The TV in question is approx. 3+ years old.I have assured her it must be purely coincidence as I have never seen a TV be damaged by antenna Maintence/repair work.... And I have been doing this work for 25+ years.Any ideas or feedback are very helpful and appreciated???Kindest regardsSimon

I have an 8 year old Panasonic TH-50PE8U that was damaged by

I have an 8 year old Panasonic TH-50PE8U that was damaged by a house lightening strike. The HTMI input will not work, but I can get a picture with an antenna. About 5 years ago, Justanswer had a similar incident and recommended replacement of the A module (TH PH0716AKS) I replaced this module, but now I don't have access to the TV Menu. The screen lights up faintly. When I go to turn off the TV, it will not turn off unless I hold the ON/OFF button. Once I release, it turns back on. A couple of times I have been able to turn the TV off with the remote, but several seconds later it turns itself back on.
