Customer Question
Bought Hitachi 22" DVD/TV series...
Bought Hitachi 22" DVD/TV series 4 yesterday and can't get a good picture. The TV is plugged into the wall aerial - sound is good, but all four channels are fuzzy except for a clear band at the top of the screen.
Any idea what the problem could be? All our 'old fashioned' tv's work fine through the connections.

I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
