RCA 25GT511 - fuzzy picture slight static sound; wiggle coax rear mount temp resolve

My RCA 25GT511 has a slight static sound and the picture is somewhat fuzzy. If I wiggle the coax mount at the rear, it will temporarily resolve but then return. It is NOT the coax cable to the tv that is the problem. But where the coax enter the rear of the tv. I opened the back and see where the male end enters a silver box. I am lost from here... and suggestions redbyrd

There might be a bad (loose) connection in the RF isolator or the tuner (both are silver boxes. Try to unplug the coax and bend the RCA tabs in so that the connection gets firmly made when reconnected. This may help. If it does not The connector may have to be replaced.

How do i hook up mono tv with eterxnal speakers with a dvr box

If the DVR has RCA-type connectors, yellow to yellow for picture, and white to white for sound. Tune tv to line input.
If the DVR supports outputting everything on coax, use a piece of coax cable, and tune tv to channel 3.
Your coax cable from wall has to go into DVR first, then out to tv.

RCA 27 inch ColorTrak Plus. TV is hooked to cable. I can produce the problem by wiggling the coax connector. The screen goes through various degrees of snowy-ness until I find the sweetspot on the coax....

The failure with this TV is due to faulty ground in the tuner that is why when you wiggle the cable connected to the tuner the picture clears up. If this failure is not repair, it will corrupt the data on the eprom until the TV will not power ON anymore.
Check the info from this link to find more info on the failure of your TV.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

When using cable input video is good but sound has fuzzy static

Your TVs tuner tuned a little off frequency. It could be as simple as having cable box on where you have good picture but fuzzy sound, use the TVs remote to change the channel and then change it back to proper channel. If that doesn't fix you may have wrong tuning type selected in channel set up menu.

GE Model #25GT511 Power on, no picture or sound

The question I have is if the tv stays on but with no pix or sound,we have a way to check,if you place your forearm in the face of the picture tube and the hair in your arm stands up it means you have the high voltage needed to light up the tube but something else is missing like the screen voltage or it has a loose conection in the crt board,if the hair in your arm does not react to static then we are missing the high voltage and the problem might be more involved and related to the horizontal circuit not creating the high voltage needed.If you are familiar with tv service you have a few places to check but if you are not to familiar play it safe and call for assistance from a professional servicer.Let Us know how it goes please.
