Re: fuzzy and ghost picture

Sounds like Either the cable from the wall to the TV is bad usually this will cause ALL channels to be fuzzy.Or your cable on the outside of the house is damaged.another common problem is the outlet on the wall has a bad connection.If they get painted over with wall paint this will also cause the problem.change the wallplate.If its damaged outside the cable company will usually fix it for pay for the service and it their responsibility to make sure you wiring outside the house is working properly.

Picture gets fuzzy especially the writting on 2000 Sansui tv

This could be multiple things. If the fuzzy picture is on your regular cable channels and the tv is hooked up directly to the cable then it is a signal issue. Your cable signal is probably too low because it is either split too many times, a splitter went bad, a piece of cable went bad, you have RG-59 cable rather than the much better RG-6 cable. Another solution is if there is a vcr hooked up, the cable jack on the vcr could have gone bad, the vcr power could be on which will cause a fuzzy screen. If you have a vcr try to bypass it and hook directly to tv. If that fixes you problem then it may be the vcr or the wire from the vcr to the tv. If you have no vcr then I recommend buying a cable amplifier and hooking it up. This is a band-aid solution but it could work long term if it's just a matter of weak signal. If that does not fix your problem I would recommend calling a cable professional to evaluate your problem. Could be the line from the pole to your house or any of the wiring in your home.

Hello: Your problem seems to be in or around the tuner of the television, More then likely you have cold solder joints on the turner that needs to be resoldered. Also check the coax end protruding from the back of the set where u connect the cable and make sure it is not loose, a bad ground on this connector to the turner shield will cause this symptom. My professional diagnostic is that when the television is cold the solder connections are making contact with the board, and as heat builds up in the television while watching these connections tend to seperate and make limited contact, causing fuzzy picture and in most cases no picture just snow...

One channel fuzzy

Tis is an ongoing problem I seen increase alot over the past few months. From what I can gather, all the channels being broadcast over going from the analog to digital, there's no big suprise to anyone. However, the change from analog to digital is changing at a faster rate, so when you look at the TV some channels will be fine and others will have grey lines, fuzzy picture. The only solution-you need a TV with some kind of digital tuner. On the TV itself if the (TV has one) it will say "SD" or "ED" which stands for standard digital or enhanced digital.

Non-HD picture issues

Sounds like you may have something generating interference, such as a bad cable shield on maybe a ground connection inside your tv. You might try moving the cables while watching the screen and see if the pattern changes. Double pictures on a screen can be caused by "ghosts", which means that you're getting two signals--- one slightly behind the other. Anything oscillating generating a radio frequency may radiate into your circuits causing this strange problem. Stargazer

Ghosting and popping noises

slag, Has the cable signal been branched off to another TV (or more) from the same feed? Ghosting and shadows are usually the result of bad impedance matches on those lines. Try connecting the prime TV directly to the cable box (or cable jack) output and note if there is any improvement. Make sure the cable itself is of the RG-6 type (not RG-59) and has no sharp bends or kinks. The center pin of the cable should be clean without corrosion. The RF IN jack on the TV should be checked to make sure the threads for the connector are clean and the plug should be attached firmly but not too tight. These steps should help solve this at least assuming the cable signal is good. [Checking it shows the "level" coming off the pole, not necessarily the quality of that level.] Hope this helps.
