Faint squiggly lines top to bottom

I have faint squiggly lines top to bottom that come and go depending on how long or which channel. I thought tuner problem but if you change size of screen they are even in the black part where there isn't a picture. I have no idea what to do with it and the tech I took it to isn't sure either. HELP!!!

Hr836t how do i watch different channel to one recording

This unit has only one tuner, meaning you can only watch or record one thing at a time. Depending on your TV and how your equipment is installed, you may be able to split your antenna/ cable line and record on your DVD and use your TV tuner to watch another program.

It depends on the model and the source. The DRC212N is not a recorder, so it won't.

Depending on the model, it may or may not have a tuner. (Most modern ones are sold without any tuner. Older models may only have an analog (NTSC) tuner.) I know of one Magnovox DVR/DVD recorder that has an ATSC (digital) tuner.

If you are going to record OTA signals, you will probably need a digital to analog converter. If you are recording from a cable or satellite system set-top box, you need to set the channel on the box and then record on Line In. (Analog cable should record directly.)

Please add a comment with more information about your DVD recorder. I'll be glad to provide more assistance. I hope this helps.

2005 sony 55'' sony wega. a very thin blue line is

Are you using a cable or sat box. If so then you are selecting channel using the tuner in the box and sending a constant signal to the TV eithir on one channel of the tv tuner or one of the other input of the tv. If this is the case I would suspect the box and not the tv because you say it is only on some channels.. If you are using the tuner in the tv with cable or antenna directly in I would say the main board that has the tuner on it needs replaced. Without a specific model number thats the best I can do. Hope this helps.

Vertical line at edge of AV1 channel

hi! he might have adjusted the vertical hold and height including the linearity. normally on the board you would see a trimmer resistor with a label v-hold this is to stop the rolling, v- height for the size of the picture. and linearity for the evenness of the picture from top to bottom.

Cable setuo for model 27r410t

Get an antenna hooked up, even rabbit ears should pull in a few analog channels. Set top boxes will only output Ch 3 (switcheable to ch 4 on the back if needed) and cable may be dead or only give you scrambled CATV channels. You need to set your tuner to "antenna", not CATV, IRC,HRC, or ATSC (if you have a digital tuner) and do the setup again. You could have a bad tuner at worst, and all is not lost, just hook up a VCR via RCA cables and use the VCR tuner to change channels. Keep TV on Ch3.

Noise and horizontal line

Very easy Fix, The problem is the cable box is not grounded properly. (not your fault) Go to the Local store and get a Plug adapter, just to change the TV plug that goes into the wall or surge protector from 3 to 2. Trust me on this....
