Picture problem when I use an external antennae

My rca tv shows a bit of snow when I watch different channels (I don't have cable) I can watch the shows but there seems to be constant static or snow which can get annoying. I know it's not the antennae problem because my 13in tv show all channels very clearly. Is it the tunner problem? How should I go about fixing it?

You cant unless you have been trained to trouble shoot solid state electronics as this set has no user serviceable parts inside and is best left to the pro tech to service. good Luck

My Tv no longer registers a signal from the antenna. I can see a picture thruogh my smart DVR and Chromecast but no pic with TV antenna. I bought a new antenna, still no signal.

Is the TV set to air or cable? It has to be set to air/antenna and a channel search has to be done first before a picture will show.

I don't have cable TV, so do I need just an antenna or a digital converter box to be able to watch this TV. The Make & Model # is: TOSHIBA LCD TV/DVD Combination & 27HLV95

The TV has NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital) and a ClearQAM (digital unencrypted) tuners. So you do not need a converter box. However, digital TV signals are either all or nothing (sufficient signal for the tuner to process the signal or a no signal message will appear). You should check or for the channels that are available in your location depending on how the antenna is pointed. (Hills, tall buildings and trees may decrease the channels available in your location.) Antennaweb is very conservative in the list of available channels and assumes an external antenna. provides a list of channels (in each direction) depending on the type of antenna you have. (Indoor antennas usually don't get as much signal as external ones.) Antennas for sale have a color rating that matches the colors given by TVfool.

The manual for the 27HLV95 is available from Toshiba as a PDF: .

I hope this helps.

( indicates that my location will only receive two channels from a transmitter 10 miles away. With an external antenna, I actually get 10 (including the sub-channels) with the majority from transmitters 30 miles away.)

I have a 32" RCA 32V432T TV that only shows snow now. I've checked everything externally but still no picture. Any solutions?

There could be several things that can cause this: 1. There are no analog channels in your area. 2. Check the menu setup and verify that you select the proper input (antenna, cable, etc). 3. The TV tuner is defective Try using the composite input on the TV (there are normally 3 jacks per input). Yellow for video and red and black for audio. If you dont have the proper cable, pick one up in you local 99 cent store or an electronic store.
Connect the "output" of your device (VCR, cable box, Tivo, dvd player, etc) to the "input" on the TV. Then use your TV remote to select the proper input.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.

My tv got no sound..but if connect a video/dvd via rca ok.

Sounds like you have a tuner or an antenna problem. If you are using a DVT converter box to watch off the air TV, the signal has to be very good to get sound and picture. Try connecting a VCR or a DVD player trough the coax cable and see if it you get sound an pic on Channel 3 or 4. If you do, it is an antenna problem.

LXI VHS - No Video on TV

Hi Carol!

I'm assuming the box you have this connected to is a cable converter box. If this is true, it won't have inputs for video and audio; those RCA jacks are outputs to a TV or other device that can take that kind of input. Connecting your VCR outputs to those jacks does nothing.

The simplest way to connect the VCR to the TV is using the VCR's RF output (channel 4 in your case) from the connector that says "out to TV" or "antenna out". Just remember that outputs connect to inputs. Connect the cable box output (the one marked "out to TV") to the VCR's antenna input. Then connect the VCR's antenna output back to the TV. You will need to pick up another connecting cable with F-connectors if you don't have one. Then you just put the TV on channel 4 to watch tapes. Just leave the VCR turned off for normal TV viewing.

This connection scheme also allows you to record a program from the cable box. The only thing you have to remember is that the VCR must always be set to record on the cable box output channel (channel 4, you've said). The cable box selects a channel from the cable system, but it's always sending channel 4 to the TV. (If you're confused, you're not alone. This is the part most people have trouble getting a handle on.) One thing you can't do is record and watch different channels at one time, though.

If the TV has an AV input available, it will have the three color-coded RCA jacks on the back for the audio and video from the VCR. Connect the VCR to those inputs and switch the set to the AV input to watch tapes. (If the TV isn't a stereo model, it will have only one audio input jack - white - and you'll need to get a Y-adapter at Radio Shack to join the right and left audio into one plug for the TV.) You'll get a better-quality picture and sound connecting the VCR this way.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box

There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.
