Our 10 year old 42 inch LG television has a really weird fault. It only ever occurs at the start of the BBC News at 10. During the theme music the screen will go blank and then the sound cuts out. It then appears dead for between 15 and 30 seconds. This will happen one or twice each time the program starts. This is the only program that it happens for. ITV news is fine, other programs at 10pm never cause this fault to trigger. The TV is not using anything fancy just a standard TV antenna.
The set has done this for a couple of years now, it doesn’t get any better or worse, it doesn’t matter what the weather is. I can’t find any reason for this bizarre fault to occur. One of those strange unaccountable mysteries of life.
