    Channels 2 is very snowy while 3 through 7 are ghostly, 8 perfect 9 through 13 ghostly, Seems like what could be called local channels (ones you would pick-up with rabbit ears) have problems and most cable channels seem normal...

Which channels? Tuners are divided into bandwidths-----
2-6 is V low, 7-13 is V high and so on.If say, 2-6 acts up, but
7 thru 13 never does,then the tuner is bad.
This solution assumes that video inputs were ok......T.

My Sanyo Vizon 32 inch flat panel has times when part of the picture becomes a "white ghost". How do I adjust?

Actually that is quite a rare case on today's modern digital flat panel TV's. You're not saying where you live, and you're not saying if you have previous issues on older TV you had before digital, and (again) you're not even saying whether you're on a hill or deep into a gorge. No TV has ghosting these days, but if you're living in an area as above, go see the TV people and they will probably recommend a set top box. But that isn't really necessary if you have a modern flat screen TV because most of these TV do two things, they give you a crystal clear picture or they don't. Digital TVs have a channel searching system that does the searching for you, and, as the case may be, these only pick up the best channels that give the sharpest picture. Anything that is of poor reception they ignore, so you're actually missing all the channels available because of this ghosting issue. AN there is nothing to adjust on the ghosting, snowing and vertical or horizontal bars, etc. These issues are things from the past, e.g. old analog TV's.

Cannot receive tv channels

if you are using a cable box tried to reset the box first let see if you can get channel. if you are just only using an areal antenna tried to make an adjustment in the antenna positioning which have poor reception then tried to look in other channel if you can receive local channel. if just only white raster like snow with no picture the cause could be the tuner get bad.

Amp transmitting fuzzy picture

It could be dirty contacts, corroded connectors inside, or dirty from atmospheric pollution or even dust.

Other degradation may result from a solder joint developing corrosion now, or a diode getting leaky.

It is repairable, but it is a time investment.

Poor reception on some digital channels

If possible either move the set to a room with no reception issue to see if same there or move another set to where this one is.

Usually a set does not have a problem if only certain channels.

Swap the set(looking for loose or damaged connection where cable crimps to fitting) if you can.

Some channel no sound

Hello Blwas5 hi, If some channels have sound and others none, its either the TV has poor reception or, its the channel's weak signal. check them both or see if your neighbors TV acts like yours. If thy neighbor reception is good, then thy TV has poor reception, you can't do anything to fix that. get another TV with good reception qualities.

Poor picture quality on certain channels only

You could try moving it to the other room to see if the connection is bad. Better than taking to the store just yet. If the picture is still bad at both connections I would just bite the bullet and take it back and exchange it while its free.
Hope this helps and let me know if you need more ideas.

RCA television suddenly has problems with cable reception

You have a bad ground connection somewhere. Either the cable has a break in the ground side or there is a connection problem elsewhere. Try with another cable if possible.

Diagonal lines and ghost images

You may have a bad flyback transformer (high voltage trans former). The lines you're seeing are retrace lines caused by the picture tube screen set too high. This is often caused by the screen control opening up. This control is part of the flyback.

Occasional poor reception, no digital reception when turning on television

There is a known common problem with that model and as per Sony bulletin you need to replace L6903 with P/N 1-406-662-11 and add a small ceramic cap to location #C6931 P/N 1-115-156-11... Any shop will understand what I've just said so take it with you when you drop the set off for repairs... It's an inexpensive fix and well worth it. Hope this helps. Bill
