Question about GE 32GT740 32" TV

How do I repair where the coax cable connects to my 13 in TV

It start with a little snow in the pic. Started wiggling the coax cable & it will clear up. Now I think the wiggling has broken something. I took the back off and the little box where the coax recepticle is. Occassionally, when I pulled really ******* the cable the pic would show but immediately disappear when I let go. I have basicly the same problem. If I wiggle the coax cable the picture clears up but doesn't always last. I thought that maybe I could use the RCA jacks in the back but I can't find a converter from a coax cable to RCA jacks. Anyone have any idea's?

thanks in advance!

We have a 42 inch Sanyo flat screen tv. Sometimes the pic gets snow on it as if the cable connection is not good. we have tried disconnect and reconnect and it will clear for a while. the snow comes and...


Hmmm.....The cable connection itself can be a problem. Before you even think about repairing this TV, I would certainly ask your cable provider to inspect the attenuance feed coming in to the connection. There is a good possibilty that the end connection (the piece that attaches to your RF or RCA connector of the TV) of the cable is weak. Should not be a serious problem here. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

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.

Direct tv has snow in picture cant see nothing


First, how is the receiver connected to your TV? If it's via coax, the most likely culprit is the coax from the TV to the rcvr. If you wiggle the coax and the snow goes away, you've found the answer. If it goes away, either get a new piece of coax or tighten the connection at both ends.

TV Tuner failure after warm up


Check where the F connector is soldered inside the tuner circuitry, it may have a loose solder joint there. Also check the inside of the connector where the coax is attach, sometimes the inside conductors spreads and do not make good electrical contacts.
Good Luck.

Female coax connector in tv bad?


Did the cable person take a reading on the signal level at the cable outlet on the wall and did the cable person check the TV setting to make sure they are correct. TV could be set on the wrong channel also.

Female coax connector in tv bad?


If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.

Problem with TV fuzyness and unclear.


Its is a small 2 inch square block called a antenna block or the tuner its self that has to be replaced. If it is the tuner block assy. this should be available at almost any repair store and they should know what im taliking about too! If there is no tuner block, then the whole tuner inself is going to have to be replaced and this could be expensive. If you know how to solder and unsolder, great. You can get a replacement tuner from Http://www.ptscorp.com and simply unsolder the old tuner and replace it with a new one. But if you have no electronic repair experience, you should seek out a trained tech to assist you. Good luck anmd please get back to us if you need more assistance.
