Sharp 27" tv

I bought a sharp 27" tv about 5-6 years ago. I am getting very bad reception on the lower channels on 2 & 5. when I place the TV on channel 3 and use the vcr to tune and change channels it works fine. Does this mean my internal tuner is going bad and if so is it time to buy a new TV.

You got the right idea,use the ext.imput on you tv and use the vcr to change the channels,you can check the solder conections in the tuner ,ussually the ground gets loose after a while but if you are not too familiar with tv service and dont want put any money in this set use your vcr.If the quality of the picture is still good then is worth keeping it.Let Us know if you need more information.
