 o
TV or Satellite Box Problem?

Hi everyone! This morning while watching the news before work, my TV screen suddenly went completely black. The sound, however, remained on. I waited and then the picture came back. I then attributed this to the TV station having "technical difficulties." I changed channels and everything seemed okay. I went back to my original channel and it happened again. Black screen, with sound only. I didn't have more time to play around with other channels as I had to leave for work but I did put the same channel on in the other room and it was working fine. My question is could there be a problem with the one satellite box or do you think it is the TV itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

When the tuner on my TV died, it started by going black on only one channel. After a couple of months, it was every channel.
