Samsung TS360 Problem

Hi all, I just got one off ebay and I'm not sure if it's defective or not. I don't have D* and only using it for OTA HD with a SS antenna. It worked fine for 2 hours or so the first day but ever since, all of the HD channels are distorted. There are boxes and color distortions flickering all over the screen. The sound eventually goes out after a few minutes and the unit itself freezes. The image still displays though. Has anyone seen this problem before? any fixes? Since I don't have, D* I don't think I can upgrade the firmware.
