Is it doing that on each & every channel? Have you heard that some stations/most stations are going to digital signal, which usually requires another hook-up for your TV to get these signals?

I can get a picture on my TV but it's all snowy


This could be due to a loose plug or deterioration of the aerial cable or a bad connector. Since I don't know where your aerial comes from I can't be more specific but
Have the antenna cable checked or try the tv on someone else's antenna. Snowy pictures are usually caused by a poor aerial signal (aerial = antenna),

Interference


Snowy tv screens is a sure indication of aerial problems and coax cable connections. Check that the cable has not been disconnected at the aerial outside or the wires have not corroded away

Hi! I turned my tv on this morning to find a snowy picture! Checked all connection, auto tuned tv and still snowy! Help!! Thanks Andy


Maybe you have an aerial fault. Try playing a video, if that is OK suspect the aerial or tuner unit in the set.
Hope that helps.

TV has sound,but picture not clear and in black and white. Model P42W46X


Is the picture "snowy"?
- I mean is the signal weak?
If so, check your aerial cable has not come loose at the back of the TV.

If you have another TV, or can bnorrow one from a friend/neighbor, plug this into your cable and see if the picture is ok. If so, you have a tuner fault in your TV & will need to call an engineer.
If not, then the fault is with your cable co. or outside aerial, (whichever system you have plugged in there).

Try putting your finger over the aerial socket hole behind the TV while TV is on (using your self as an aerial). If snowy disappears then you have an aerial plug/wire disconnection problem.

Snowy picture


Hi,

A snowy video indicates that your input signal is relatively weak. On the other hand, a noisy picture is when there are too much interference is super imposing on the video.

Snowy picture comes about when the signal coming in the RF INput (Ant/Cable) at the back of the unit is below a certain level. If this is the case, then it is not a problem with your TV but rather your aerial (antenna) or the cable from your provider. A way to verify that it is the ant/cable that is the cause and not a defective TV/tuner is to hook up an old VCR set to Ch. 3 or 4 to the RF IN of your TV using a short 75 ohms coaxial cable terminated at both ends with FP-5 connector. Play a known clear good tape and set your TV to Ch. 3 or 4 as the case maybe. If the picture is relatively clearer, better, then you have just confirmed that it is indeed your aerial or your cable (provider) that needs looking into. If on the other hand, the VCR signal is also snowy then chances are that you have a problem with the input stage of your TV including possibly your tuner.

For your aerial problem, antenna orientation or replacing with a higher gain antenna might help solve the snowy signal. For your cable problem, you have to call-in for service from your cable provider. If it is a TV problem, your best course would be to seek the services of a qualified TV technician since this involve electronic circuitry analysis, diagnosis and possible component replacements.

Additionally, you may try looking for any loose connection, loose grounding, broken wire or anything out of the ordinary in your connections.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Snowy picture, no reception?


Hi, Your question "Do bigger TV's need an aerial booster or something?" - No, normally it should work straight out. Boosters are used for fringe location not bigger TV. Pls a questions and some ideas: 1. "TV worked fine the night before" was it hooked up to Cable or aerial? 2. If cable, it is necessary that you change the settings of the TV from cable to STD or Air or something like that. Normally this can be done via the remote, menu, setting, set-up; 3. If aerial, you would probably need the assistance of a qualified service personnel. Apparently something got loose inside the Philips TV, not a big problem because you can still receive (BBC 1) but not the other channels, possibly a loose wiring, a disconnected connector. 4. If you feel comfortable working on it yourself, unplug the tv and the aerial, open the back and poke around. Trace from the aerial jack, the lead wires used, the connector to the main circuitry. Wiggle the wires a bit for any loose connection. 5. If #4 is not to your liking or if you do not find anything or no significant improvement after closing it up and running it again, guess you're back to #3. Hope this gives you some idea. Lots of luck and kind regards from the Philippines.
