Re: tv

Although you did not mention what the make, model number or type of TV it is, I will assume that you are using a cable or satellite box, and the most common reason for what you are seeing is the TV is on the wrong channel. Using the TV's remote, make sure the TV is on channel 3. Most of the time that is all you need to do.

SOURCE: "snow sound" on rca tv, perfect picture

Although your picture is perfect, I would think the fine tuning is slightly off. This can also be to do with the cable box frequency setting. Call out the cable people & get them to check the box & the setting up to the TV.

My tv sanyo cm21kf81A, chassis number FC3-G221 has snow noise on all tv channels, but AV1 and AV2 play good sound

First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.

If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.

let me know if you have questions or have more information.

No sound no picture.but when playing the x-box picture on and sound

I think your TV is in the A-V mode. The X Box is going into the TV through the A-V jacks. (AUDIO/VIDEO). You should be able to switch the set to tuner mode with the remote. Look for a button labeled input or go into the menu and look for "input". Stargazer

No picture, however there is sound

Is this set hooked to cable? Is there a cable or satellite box? When you press the menu button, do you see the menu on screen? Do you see anything on the screen, such as snow, or is it completely black? If the signal is OK and the TV has no picture at all, the red LED on the front of the set should be flashing a certain number of times. If the LED is flashing, the computer has detected a problem in the set and shut the picture off. If this is the case, there is no way for you to bring the picture back by pressing buttons. The number of times the LED flashes is the computer's way of displaying exactly why there is no picture. The set should then be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Sony TV's. If the LED is not flashing and the menu comes up on screen, check your signal source. If you are using a cable or satellite box, that box could be bad, and if you are using RCA jacks, the yellow (video) wire could be bad or pulled out.
