Question about Televison & Video
Bad/No reception problem on older tube tv which worked perfectly yesterday. Today we've received a 32” Zenith Television bought in the year 2000 (the tube kind). We plug the normal cable into it (the same cable works great with our other TV’s) but all channels sound like static and are black/gray fuzzy, no picture at all on any channels. Channel 3 looks and sounds different than all the rest and has some wavy lines mixed with the static/fuzz. I choose menu option ‘cable’ and do auto search… finds 66 of the 80+ channels that it should receive (our good TV’s find and display 80+ channels), after this there are no changes to this bad/no reception problem. I’ve experimented with this auto search at least ten times switching from cable to antenna and back to cable etc…
I thought the TV tuner is bad so I connected the TV to our VCR and used it as a tuner but the VCR makes absolutely no difference, even channel 3 is the same. No VCR movies will show on this TV either. Tried cable auto search while VCR is on as well, no luck.
I’ve tried a hard reset, unplugging the TV for 8 hours, but that doesn’t fix or change anything at all.
Video games work perfectly on this TV with no reception. Has a great picture and wonderful color with the video games.
The previous owner is my husband’s grandma and she said it worked great for her except the color seemed a little light for her.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
