Same channel on all channels

Sometimes when I turn on my Tv.. all the channels play the same channel. If I turn the TV off, I have just a fuzzy screen... then I try to do easy set up with no success. After a few hours,the TV works fine. I have had my cable/signal checked multiple times with no problems found. Any suggestions? Could this be the TV? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Same channel on all channels

Yeppers it certanly sounds like the tuner control curcuit or the tuner itself is bad. With the back off the set and the tV on, if you tap on the side of the tuner does the set start to work? if so the tuner has to be replaced

How do i set up my tv with my sony vcr

Hi Katie.. If you are using a coaxial cable to connect your TV and VCR, the TV needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4. If you are using the Yellow, red and white cables, your TV should be on video mode to work.

My RCA has a black block come up in the bottom of the screen? We have Dish Network Satellite and have programed the remote from the remote code guide. TV volume and channel changer work, but picture is a...

This has hopefully been resolved for you, but if not, here are some steps to go through. The black box that comes on the screen is usually signaling that closed Captioning is activated on the tv. Closed captioning does not run through the DISH Network receivers, so you can turn that feature off in your tv settings. The fuzzy picture could be a few things. You will want to check that all of your cables on the back of the receiver box and tv are tight as possible, and also make sure that the tv is on the correct channel. If you are in the room with the receiver, the tv will need to be on channel 3 or 4, and sometimes an input; usually video 1 or 2. If you are in a number two room, where there is no receiver, than you want to make sure that the tv is on channel 60 or 73. I hope that this helps!!!!!

Channel 2 goes fuzzy same time each day

This may be an issue with the broadcast. As all other channels are fine its not the tuner or TV. The broadcasters may be doing work on this channel at the same time every day.

I would advise contacting the people who broadcast TV in your area

One channel fuzzy

Tis is an ongoing problem I seen increase alot over the past few months. From what I can gather, all the channels being broadcast over going from the analog to digital, there's no big suprise to anyone. However, the change from analog to digital is changing at a faster rate, so when you look at the TV some channels will be fine and others will have grey lines, fuzzy picture. The only solution-you need a TV with some kind of digital tuner. On the TV itself if the (TV has one) it will say "SD" or "ED" which stands for standard digital or enhanced digital.

Tv only has select channels

If you have a good cable signal connected to the TV and it receives channel 50 nice and clear but all lower channels have nothing but snow, then the tuner is defective and needs to be replaced. This is quite an easy thing to correct. Sometimes resoldering all connections inside the tuner will bring it back to life, but in either case the set should be serviced by a qualified tech.
