Leakage in tuner

tuner may be bad, it is possible if rear inputs work to route signal to one of those inputs by using a box with the same type of connections the rear inputs have--bypass the tuner in the set with a box.

Input0, cablecard, sound but no picture

Could be a tuner issue but if not tried unplug set and a box if used from power for a while and then power them back---also do same if using a receiver in the line as well.

Failing that you can get around this (if a bad tuner) by routing signal to a unused rear input, bypass the problem.

Need tuner for jvc av 56p776 where can I find one at?

A much cheaper option is route the signal for the set into one of the rear inputs like the DVD uses(most boxes have that or if antenna use a old VCR).

This bypasses the tuner etc and will give a better picture and better sound quality---

A typical tuner is over 100 part and not counting labor (not a do it yourself repair for most people).

Get around the problem by using the rear jacks instead.

Lg 32lc4r pip

The model listed is a very old Mitsubishi.

It likely has only one tuner so the pip must come from a video input--in the old days people would use a splitter for cable one to set and another to a VCR and run cables a/v from the vcr to one of the video inputs.

Later sets had two tuners--one the main and the other PIP.

My rca has no picture the screen has a snowy picture is if it was on the wrong channel through my cable box.

More information would help. What are you running the signal into the TV with? Coax? Separate video/audio? To test the set if you have a vcr hooked up or available to hook up, input it into the tuner input and play a tape. Set the tv to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel the output of the vcr is set for, this can be determined by checking the menu or a switch on the back if it is an older vcr). If your TV is ok you should be able to see the tape which is playing. If not, and you still have snow you probably need a new tuner in the set. Let me know if you need more help.

My RCA 52in. has a blue screen... Will not show a picture?

  1. Check menu to make sure a signal is present. try video 1 with a external video source such as a VCR. If this produces a picture check for tuner signal by hooking the VCR to the antenna and tuning to channel 3 or 4. If their is no picture check antenna connector on back of set for looseness. If loose resolder antenna connector in tuner. If all these test fail the tuner may be defective and will require replacement.

No picture

alot of sets turn solid blue when the signal is lost . check your antenna or cable inputs might be chewed up by pets mostly.
try feeding in a dvd player, or VCR signal and see if that plays on channel 3 or 4 ... if not you might need a new tuner.

When you say you have tried all the inputs you are not clear if you mean tuner, vcr, dvd, aux, etc. If you are talking about only the cable input it sounds like you have a bad tuner. To obtain picture in picture there are 2 tuners in your set. This would explain why the small picture is ok while the main picture is bad. You should be able to swap the signals (see your ops manual). Try this. If the snow moves the one tuner is bad. If you have put other signals in (besides cable)such as dvd then the problem is in the matrix circuitry where the two signals merge. Either problem should be easy for a good tech to solve and not cost a whole lot.
