Why is my TV picture breaking up?  I have tried switching off at the wall, switching off at the Virgin box, pulling plugs out, putting plugs in but still the same.  Do I need a new TV or is it fixable?
1 earlier reply
Thanks Alec. I have rung them this morning and they tell me my box is old, bit like me, so they are sending another one. I hope all I have to do is plug it in as anything other than that is beyond me.
I've got the same problem, it's been happening for a couple of weeks now. My box was only replaced a few months ago though.
