First, how is the receiver connected to your TV? If it's via coax, the most likely culprit is the coax from the TV to the rcvr. If you wiggle the coax and the snow goes away, you've found the answer. If it goes away, either get a new piece of coax or tighten the connection at both ends.

A brief history: fixya helped me change my bulb (been receiving a "replace bulb" message for awhile until my picture went black). The picture now is snow, not black which seems to me to indicate the bulb...


Since you do have sound but snow for picture is your TV 54J or 54U chassis the PT50DL54J chassis shows 4 tuners also Have you look for Leaky or Bad capacitors if they are puffed up on top they are Bad 2200uf 25v 1000uf 25v Look for bad capacitors on tuner Boards, and I have seen where they are on Power supply board that will affect Picture.

The actual tv will no show a screen, but you can


if theres power its more likely your picture tube went out or blowed & will have to be replaced or repair. If there is there sound other than the power like static or normal sound. then it's definely the picture tube but if theres nothing but juice & its a newer model tv its a problem with the fan or lamp

My Panasonic DLP television suddenly lost picture, went to snow and lost audio. What is wrong?


If you have snow that means you've either lost the signal source (cable satelite antenna) or the TV tuner is bad or your not on a recievable channel. Try hooking a signal to one of the video inputs of the TV.

More info on what you have hooked to the TV would help.

Blue screen


it is not seeing a signal source.in the earlier days,"snow" would be evident but today the tuner signal lost results in a blue screen.check the cable signals and the cable box.
i would put cable from the wall directly into the set and see if there is a picture,and then check that it is not set to aux input with nothing connected

The picture went from clear to snow, but the sound remained clea


Flyback is going out in this unit and would cost $120 for a new flyback if I were to repair it for you. So you have two choices have it repaired on recycle it! The repair these days on TUBE tv's are not very cheap because of having to find parts for them. Rulds2008

Nothing but snow


Your explanation about a different TV receiver working OK on the same aerial connections leads me to believe you have lost the tuning in the faulty receiver...
Just "snow" with no sound is a classic response for lost tuning....
It shouldnt have lost the tuning as there is a small battery(capacitor) that holds the previous receiver channel settings when you turn the TV off. But as you have had the Receiver in the back of a truck and disconnected from the power supply for some time then this is probably the culprit....
This battery (Capacitor) may be getting old and has lost its capability of sending a minute amount of current to the tuner IC (Chip) ...to hold your previous channel settings...So if you can retune the receiver to the output from the Dish Network Receiver you should be fine again, but if the battery is shot you need a new one....or just leave the Receiver in the standby mode for a couple of days to re-charge the battery (capacitor) up.
You will need a service technician to replace this small battery (capacitor) its a special type made just for your receiver....
Hope this helps

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.
