Re: Snowy Picture

I am having the same problem on my 52" LCD (see link for pictures). I think it is a cold solder joint on the tunner. I am going to re-solder any cold joints I can find. Happends when it gets a little warm like when the sun is shinning in my living room.

Re: Snowy Picture

You could have a bad spitter or a fitting could have come loose.First thing to do is to take another TV set right next to the bad TV set and plug in the cable to the other TV set to see if the same issue happens. If it does there is a cable issue. If it does not have a snowy picture, then you should call the store where you purchaced the set for exchange or service. Good Luck

Picture is really snowy in the bedroom and we have another lg tv in the family room and it has a great picture on it they are both hooked up to the same dish network receiver but it just started like 4 or...

Hello, I hope this was resolved, but if not, here are some steps to run through. It sounds like the tv that is showing only snow is on an incorrect channel and/or input. The correct channel is different depending on what tv it is that is snowy. If TV2 is snowy where there is no receiver box, that tv needs to be on channel 60 or 73. If TV1 is snowy, where the receiver is, then you will want to make sure that the tv is on either channel 3 or 4, and it usually needs to be on an input as well. Anything ranging from video1 to HDMI3. Also, make sure that you have a blue, green, and yellow light on the front of the receiver box. If none of these steps help, unplug the receiver from the power source for about 10 seconds. If this still does not help, or you have any other questions, please e-mail me at

Tv has only snowy screen. Used the remote to

What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

First of all, I'm not an expert but you might wanna change your cables. Bad and cheap cables are usually the reason for bad and snowy picture. Good luck!

Picture is snowy/dark

update: Well, we ended up calling the repair man and we had a bad Y-sustain board and also a bad Z-sustain board. According to the guy who fixed it, it was due to over use of the TV and using main power button instead of shutting off through the cable remote. 650.00 later and a few weeks later, we now have a fixed plasma. No real suggestions on how to get more life out of the new boards.

Please help snowy/ fuzzy picture

If you can move the TV to a known good working cable feed and connect it there. if the picture looks normal then most likely you have a bad splitter, a bad fitting or even a bad cable box on that TV.
