You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer

SOURCE: picture clear then fades to snow when it does, makes annoying sound

These Sony tuners have bad solder connections inside on the printed circuit board. If you can solder and take out the tuner, you can send it to for an overhaul. A new tuner will cost you about 80 bucks or so. Good luck.

Has snow. We just got it from a friend a week ago. Picture was fine for a few days then snow. Thanks!

Satellite or cable? Snow is indicative of a satellite dish that has moved, or something is in the way of the signal, tree branches, leaves, rain, sleet and snow.

If not, check all the cables at the back.

Just got a new tv and on satalite. The picture is very snowy. Help!

Check all connections, if necessary, use the diagrams in the manual to make sure everything is connected as it should be.

Check your Input.

On your remote select TV
Then TV input
You should see a small menu on the screen
Select Satellite or HDMI
Select Select DTV or Dish

You should now have a good picture.

If not, call your Satellite TV Company right away and they will help you troubleshoot. The number will be on the contract they gave you. I can't give you the number without knowing which Satellite TV you have subscribed to.

Good luck to you.

I have a Toshiba 46H84. We had a lightening storm one night and the next morning the satellite dish and TV were turned off. DVD player was not and worked fine. The satellite dish needed to be reset, but...

Yes, all sets are protected by a fuse where the power cord enters.

Start at the beginning--unplug the set and look for the glass fuse--should be a 5 amp or greater. It will be in a plug in holder. If you are lucky the strike or power outage got it.

Do this with the set unplugged.

Let me know what you find---I am here to help.

Total loss of power to the set indicates either the ac fuse is blown or the the power supply is damaged.

Unless a tech actually opened the set and looked at it he is just throwing darts at the board.

I am here to help--if my suggestion informed you rate this solution as "very helpful" as I do this here for free.

Hello. the particular setup we are dealing with is

Hi Guest, I can definitely help you with that, however if the screen is snowy we won't know if it's working until we get a picture.

To do that try changing TV2 to channel 60 and 73. If it only goes up to 69 put it on 60, if it goes to 73 then good. If still snowy, then go down to the main television and follow these steps. Menu -> System Setup(6) -> Installation(1) -> Modulator Setup(5). Go to TV 2 Out and change mode to Air if you put the TV2 on 60 and Cable if it's on 73 and select Done to save.Check the second TV for picture, and if it's still not showing then check cabling.

Once you have a picture back the remote should be working with it, if not feel free to post here!

TV comes on with snow and clears up after 10-15 mins

Their is no more you can do.
You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.
