Sound like your receiver is giving up the ghost. When dad had the D-TV it would do this.
No you don't,you have movie screens.'08.
Neither do communists....
I guess that even communists get something right once in a while.
Mid August the local cable company (only one) pulled the plug on all but a few LA channels. I go to their office to see what the problem was. They said they were switching to streaming and I needed to sign up for a package for $20 a month more and buy a $120 Roku to get service again. I told them no, but kept the internet. I haven't missed the TV a bit.
Are you using an app or does it do it no matter what? When was the last update? I don't trust mine to connect to the internet on its own. It sounds like overheating if it's not a particular app
Did youf internet / wireless wifi stay working ?
Back in the day (about 1976) I bought a Sony Trinitron, at the time the zenith (ha ha) of television hardware.
About 1983, it started acting up: a black blob would form on the screen and eventually cover the entire picture area. Turn it off, turn it on would be OK for awhile. I put up with this sporadic problem for a couple of months because I did not want to spend the money for a new one. Then it went way all of a sudden, and the set was good for several more years.
But unplugging for a few minutes has fixed all my other TV problems. And agree with checking for updates.
Unplug, wait ten seconds, plug back in.
Have you tried yelling at it?
Oh Lord, won't you buy me a color TV,
Dialing for Dollars is trying to find me.............
Exactly what a commie would say
Musta' been a problem on THEIR end, it's working now...
I feel so much better now.
What does "locked up" mean? Kinda hard to diagnose with a description like that.
Now the problem is on YOUR end.
Your internet connection (wifi) is causing your problem.
Change the position of your WiFI antennas (if applicable) or, if it's a wired connection, maybe get a new router.
Sounds like it's not a TV problem at all.
Try this link on your PC.
See if you have a dropped packets.
Depending on the make, you can hold the power button down for 10 seconds or so to reboot / reset to factory settings.
I have a Sony TV running Android which freezes on occasion; unplugging is tough due to wall mount. Resetting via remote seems to do the trick.

Turned mine on at breakfast, can't change the channel with either remote. Gives me an error message ... "having trouble connecting to the in internet..."
Well, I would think so, it's cable.
But, Netflix & Amazon Prime, which are off the Internet via WiFi do work?
