Re: TV. dpops channes
Bill, your set has a bad tuner, only fix for that is to R & R the tuner, 2nd option would be to use your vcrs tuner input and then RCA out cables from vct to input on back of tv, If you have never done this re-post and I`ll walk you through it, let me know, BMW Rider

Check the connection at the back of the TV. During moving, any of them might got loose. Check it. As the TV has snow and hissing sound, there is no fault with it. The fault must be to the cable or antenna connections.
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.
The tuner of the TV is likely bad. Try hooking up a vcr (if available ) and changing channels with it (using video inputs on tv if available).
If you can confirm that the cable is good (by trying another tv) then the problem is with the tuner of the TV- get estimate from repair shop.
Sounds like U have an antenna or feeder problem. Get it checked out/ check it out. If in a strong signal area, try a simple indoor antenna for comparison. If in a marginal reception area, it could be your antenna is inadequate.
Most tv's have an Antenna mode and a cable mode. If you have cable tv service, the cable mode must be selected in order to receive channels higher than 23. Then you must auto program the channels thru the menu screen on the tv to receive the channels above 23. If you have a house antenna or rabbit ears, its hit or miss on receiving all VHF and UHV channels.
Although you did not mention what the make, model number or type of TV it is, I will assume that you are using a cable or satellite box, and the most common reason for what you are seeing is the TV is on the wrong channel. Using the TV's remote, make sure the TV is on channel 3. Most of the time that is all you need to do.
