Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV
I've had this TV for a while, but it has always worked like a dream. I recently moved and the TV was working great before I unhooked everything for the move. After loading and securing it in a van and getting it to the new location, it doesn't work anymore. I get nothing but snow when hooked up to my Dish Network receiver, VCR, and Tivo. In case you're thinking it's not hooked up correctly, a different TV works fine when hooked up to the same setup. What would cause a TV to act normal, but only have snow on the screen?
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
