yes it is, and yes it can. BUT it maybe a difficult problem to determine if it is intermittent, you will be best served waiting until it fails "Hard On" otherwise it may take some time to find the intermittent fault.

Off-Air reception (Antenna) of TV Guide comes from a supplier called Rovi (formally known as Macrovision, Gemstar). They have supplied your local CBS affiliate with a TV Guide application known as SCTE 127 or VBI in MPEG. Follow these steps until you have found a solution to the TV Guide - No Information Available.

1. Check to see if your local CBS station is coming in clearly not tiling.

2. Reset your TV Guide through your TV Guide Menu, for more information copy and paste the link below. (What usually works for me is setting up the guide by putting in 99999 for the zip code then answer all other questions. After it says your TV will receive the guide in 24 hours then setup the guide as you normally would with your zip code).

3. Contact your local CBS affiliate engineer and see if they are having problems with the TV Guide transport stream i.e. SCTE 127 or VBI in MPEG

FYI if you get your service from a Cable TV company they will have to pass this information through their system commonly referred to as Passing PIDS.

Since the set is less than 1 year old, it should still be under warranty. Request warranty service.

The noise you are hearing is probably arcing inside the set on the power supply board. Continuing to attempt to turn on the set will only make things worse. Please request warranty service as this is unusual for a TV that new.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

Possibly a bad connection on the antenna jack on tv. Does it wiggle at all? TVs have to be made so cheap these days because us consumers buy the cheapest products. The antenna jack or f connector is sometime only held on by the solder that area he's it to the circuit board. When the tv gets move 4 ft and there is a 3 ft coax cable, the f conn solder will break. Sometimes it is easy to resolder if you are a little handy and are qualified to disassemble the tv. Otherwise if you use sat or cable you can bypass this issue by using the hdmi on the receiver to tv and get your local channels thru sat or cable

I can’t say for sure with out knowing what type it is but it is probably not a settings issue. Could be color guns out of alignment or board that regulates color has gone bad. Call LG to find a warranty repair shop if under warranty, if not buy a new one. With the price of new smart TVs most are not worth fixing!
