Question about Mitsubishi CS-27309 27" TV

2 Answers

TV picture When TV button is pushed on, TV has no picture just black and white fuzzy screen with no sound. If I turn on VCR first and have TV on Channel 3, TV picture and sound will come on after a few minutes. Goes form black and white to horizontal lines and then picutre and sound will appear. Will work as long as VCR is on, can change channels through VCR. If I turn VCR off, TV will sometimes work on its own for a short while and then will go back to original state.

Re: TV picture

I agree with techman it is defective tuner... and remember tuner is too expensive.. At this point most likely you would be better off getting a new TV set. good luck

The set you have has a bad tuner assembly. At this point most likely you would be better off getting a new TV set. Good Luck

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.

Channel three is missing

Hi pasu, Normally if you can get/program Chs 2 and/or 4 as well the other channels, then Ch 3 should also be programmable. If this is not possible, perhaps you can try to manually program by selecting "03" and add to the memory "+" in some brands/model. If this is still a no go, perhaps you should seek the services of qualified professional since this would apparently be an internal software problem. You can also try a hard/full reset by unplugging the TV from the mains for couple of hours or as prescribed by your TV's user manual. If the TV has Video input features, a possible temporary work around the TV's Ch3 problem is to use the Video1 or the Audio/Video INput of your TV and use an old VCR to connect to your cable box. Remove the coaxial cable from your cable box to your TV and connect it to the RF/TV INput of your VCR. Use a 3 way RCA to RCA connector (usually Yellow, Red & White) to couple the Audio/Video OUTput of the VCR to the Audio/Video INput of the TV. Select Video mode in your TV (so it doesn't matter even if you cannot program Ch3). Power up your VCR, select Ch3 in your VCR's tuner. I assume that to select channels you wish to view, you use a remote and channel selection is done in your cable box. What worries me is "...went to a fuzzy black and white screen..." which is indicative of another fault. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Picture gets fuzzy especially the writting on 2000 Sansui tv

This could be multiple things. If the fuzzy picture is on your regular cable channels and the tv is hooked up directly to the cable then it is a signal issue. Your cable signal is probably too low because it is either split too many times, a splitter went bad, a piece of cable went bad, you have RG-59 cable rather than the much better RG-6 cable. Another solution is if there is a vcr hooked up, the cable jack on the vcr could have gone bad, the vcr power could be on which will cause a fuzzy screen. If you have a vcr try to bypass it and hook directly to tv. If that fixes you problem then it may be the vcr or the wire from the vcr to the tv. If you have no vcr then I recommend buying a cable amplifier and hooking it up. This is a band-aid solution but it could work long term if it's just a matter of weak signal. If that does not fix your problem I would recommend calling a cable professional to evaluate your problem. Could be the line from the pole to your house or any of the wiring in your home.

No Picture but have sound

OK I got my first TV, first to repair myself that is, and I have no training at all but am kind of a tech dork wannabe. So I checked and I have sound but no signal through the TV tuner, so I hooked up my Zenith VCR to aux 1 and sound with signal appeared, the VCR tuner still works :) so I am leaning toward the TV tuner. It is visibly damaged, and I'm hoping it is as simple as a broken connection. I also noticed a vertical flash and pattern of horizontal lines when it is turned off (white). sooooo I push on.... help!!!!!!!!!!!!! :>}
