My tv just went off all at once to nothing it just looks like snow on it thats it and we have it hooked up to cable and was viewing it at the time

snow is an indication of signal failure either from the station or an antenna connection problem
if it all channels then I would be looking at the cable connection at the cable box or outside antenna connections

Fix tv picture

If the TV is receiving its signal from a cable TV box or DVR then you need to find out if the problem is in the TV or the cable box/DVR. Connect a different source to your TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a DVD movie. If the problem occurs again it suggests the TV needs repair. If the TV works OK when playing a DVD movie then that suggests that your cable box/DVR needs repair or replacement.
If your TV is receiving its signal directly from an antenna or cable outlet on the wall then you should try replacing the cable wire from the wall to the TV with a new wire. If that doesn't help then your TV probably needs repair or replacement.

My tv sanyo cm21kf81A, chassis number FC3-G221 has snow noise on all tv channels, but AV1 and AV2 play good sound

First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.

If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.

let me know if you have questions or have more information.

I'm not sure how to connect my Toshiba SE-R0346 to my Sanyo TV. I plugged the cable line into the "Antenna in" port & then another cable line from "Antenna Out" to my TV. If I...

Exactly as you have done is fine all you need to do now is play the tape, (so you know what to look for when it is displayed on the screen), decide which channel you want to view the vVCR through, say 9, select the channel and set the TV to search tune on that channel. Store it when your taped programme appears.
Alternatively, have the set up as you have described and press auto install. That will retune the whole of the TV and include the VCR.
Hope this helps.

Can we record with our sanyo drw 500 and a digital tv? If so, how do we do this?

If cable/SAT box, hook-up that box video/sound output to DVD video/sound input. If no cable/SAT box, hook-up cable from wall into antenna/cable in on DVD and tune DVD to channel wished, and hook-up DVD TV antenna out to TV antenna in. If DVD has no antenna/cable in, TV must have video/sound output. Hook to DVD video/sound input. Hope this helps.

New sanyo hdtv and old vcr...can't get menu to appear on screen

there is an input or input select button that gives you cable,hdmi and video composite,to run the vcr. hook up cable and put the tv on channel3 to make sure that works first,then play with the rca cables. keep in mind a tape has to be playing,the new tv have a signal sense circuit,if there is just "snow" you get a blue screen

Bought 2 DTT-9900 converter boxes and hooked them to 2 TV's, get signals after playing around with antenna. but after using both TV's to play a dvd (dvd player hook to TV) The sound went down to almost...

Try turning off the converter box when using the DVD player. The zenith have a second sound control on the converter box remote thus you may have to adjust the sound on the tv remote because you are using the dvr. I set the zenith sound level at the highest level and use on the tv remote only to adjust sound. This eliminated a hiss that the sound control on the converter box was causing.

You can get a converter box for dvd hookup to the cable connector at the back of the set at Wal Mart or Radio Shack.
