Do you get similar picture if connect external video source such as DVD player etc to TV?

No, from external video sourse.

Thanks Sue for the info.
There are two possible causes of the problem, either aerial isn't good or connected securely with the TV or tuner inside TV is not working properly.
Please check if the aerial is hooked securely in TV then run auto channel scan in TV so TV will scan and update available channel data to see if it helps to resolve the problem.
If it doesn't help then tuner will need to be replaced which is mounted on main board and if tuner isn't available separately then entire main board will be replaced to resolve the problem. If TV is still under warranty then it would not cost you any money.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
