Worked fine until came back from vacation. Now there is a rectangle on the screen and below it says "Acquiring data....Press Menu to enter setup screen". I unplugged it and then left it on yesterday and the picture came back after about half an hour. It worked fine this morning but then started doing it again this afternoon. I had it unplugged for awhile but it is still not working. The telephone, and cable connections appear to still be fine.
Any suggestions welcome.
It is a refurbished model from Crutchfield that I have had for a couple of years now.

I was wrong, the Panasonic was not the problem. I found a crack in my RG6 outside-it looked like the insides had been "rotting" for some time. Think it may have been weed wacked or something letting moisture into the interior of the cable. I replaced with RG6 (after trying RG59 that didn't work) and am now back up and running.
