Question about TruTech PVS2119 19 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

When connected to cable - sometimes snow on channels 14-21.

I am using this DVD/TV for my mother in law who is bedridden. Connected to Comcast Cable it has snow on channels 14-21, most of the time. The cable company checked and told us the power being received is where it should but it appears that the connector within the TV moves and it should be stationary. What should I do?

Re: When connected to cable - sometimes snow on channels...

The RF Connector could be loose either because of bad solder connection or just that part of the tuner could be going bad in the TV. One fix or repair is too use a cable box to eliminate the tuner issue or borrow one for test, and or buy a inexpensive vcr and hook it to cable first then take the output out of vcr and run to tv tuner input. Or better yet, use Yellow ,Red, White cables (Composite video) and run it into respective inputs on TV if it has those inputs. Let me know if this solves your problem or at least gets you close. Thank you. And talk to you soon....Jay

For the auto scan to detect there must be channels present on the CABLE that is connected to the RF input- TUNER INPUT- of the TV.
So check with your cable operator for the channels and you can connect. however if you are using a digital box then the channels are memorised on the box as only the output of the box is connect to the video/audiop inputs of the TV. if so select line in/video 1/2.

Try changing the audio settings in your tv. Sometimes changing from pcm to dolby digital or vice versa can get your audio back up on these channels. Remember some stations are broadcasting in digital pcm and or dolby digital. I would leave tv on pcm. If that doesnt work check to make sure your not in a second audio mode (meaning set is on sap) sometimes a customer will accidentally hit the sap button. Put unit on stereo setting

Dynex TV picture disappears to snow after a second

I bought this TV and had the exact same problem, I tried everything i could think of and so did Geek Squad but nothing worked. We called Best Buy to see about a return policy and the manager told us that the brands Dynex and Insignia do not work with certain cable companies, one being Comcast. Call Best Buy and ask if your cable company will work with the brand. My suggestions are to either return the TV and search for a new one, I did this, OR you could take a DVD/VCR player and connect the cable from your wall to the DVD/VCR player. Then use the red, yellow, and white wires to connect the TV to the DVD/VCR player. Put your TV on the proper input and cable will work fine, because you will see the picture from the player not directly from your TV. I hope this helps, if you need any further information just ask.

Connecting a DVD/VCR combo to LCD TV

The best suggestion I would advise is to buy a shielded scart connector & connect that from your DVD combi to either AV1 OR AV2. It sounds as if you are picking up RF interference from your current connections, this can sometimes happen if the cables do not have adequate shielding.

Panasonic 42" connected to comcast dvr, and dvd player

To solve need more info if this is still a problem.
Is your comcast dvr connected directly to the tv, and also the DVD connected directly to the TV?
If so then you will need to change the input selection on your tv remote to determine which inputs these devices are connected to.
If you are connected differently, please post how your devices are connected.
