Hitachi snowy screen and noisy

TV just gets snowy (no picture) and very noisy without any action from us. We will just be watching any channel and this will happen. Sometimes one after the other, and sometimes 2 or 3 times daily. The picture and sound are fine when this is not happening. Any ideas about what the problem could be and how to correct it? Thank you

Re: Hitachi snowy screen and noisy

You have broken solder connections inside the tuner, you`ll need a tech as it is soldered in and once removed the board inside will have to be re-soldered. An alternative would be to use the AV outputs of your cable box or vcr to the AV input of your tv, this bypasses the tuner circuit, you will of course have to go into the tv`s menu and switch to AV 1 or AV 2 whichever input you use, good luck& Happy Holidays

Snowy picture

The remote doesn't effect the channels, I would say you have poor signal or interference from another device nearby.

1996 RCA Color TV model G27720tn

If you are on cable, first run the cable wire from the wall directly to the TV, eliminating any cable box and/or VCR. If channel 2 is snowy but the rest (especially 3-6) are clear, it is most certainly a cable problem and not a TV problem. The TV uses the exact same circuits for channel 2 to 6 (VHF-LOW) so if the tuner was bad and 2 was snowy, 3, 4, 5 and 6 would be snowy too. Bring a second TV into that room, disconnect the cable wire from the RCA and connect it to the second TV. Is channel 2 on the second TV as snowy as it was on the RCA?

Intermittent snowy pictures under Channel 51

Probably needs a new tuner or something associated with the tuner.

Channel jumping

Sounds like the PIP feature is causing the problem with the TV if you are connected directly to cable TV without a box inline and getting these issues.
