Question about Memorex MT1701 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer


The picture is very fuzzy with a snow like effect. I have tried all the inputs and have the same problem. When I go to picture in picture the small square picture is perfectly clear. I purchased a Memorex 32 inch LCD HDTV. I have it connected to my directv box, but have not purchased a hdbox yet. The picture is slightly fuzzy with what looks like millions of little snowflakes ( pixels ). Is the problem with a connection, or that it is because I don't have the hdtv box yet or something entirely different......NEED Help before I take this back and go back to our ancient tube tv.

Well, I can tell you it shouldnt have anything to do with your not having an HD box. The TV does not require a HD signal to give you a quality picture. The HD box only gives you the enhanced HD signal, but should work as any regular TV without it. How do you have it connected?

Sounds like it's on the wrong input, maybe it's analog tuner. Have you tried changing it's input?

Just bought a 55" DP55D44 Sanyo TV, and the picture seems to be showing fuzzy. How can adjust this?

The fuzziness is radio noise from space. No I am not kidding. It's from the background radio spectrum of the universe's creation and it is uniform and OMNI-directional, so it will always appear as snowy noise that is fuzzy in appearance. You can't remove this noise unless you connect a signal from a TV station or cable that is much stronger in strength than this noise. If you mean that a TV signal comes in and appear fuzzy, it is because this TV signal is very weak and you need a better antenna to increase the signal gain. Hope this helps.

Snowy picture

Can you say it does it on all inputs including DVD etc?

Snow in the picture to me does not indicate a T-conn board.

Has fuzzy spots all the way across the screen and just scrolls up

Is the picture fuzzy whether you are waching tv or a dvd or a tape. If it's only fuzzy on tv or dvd or tape then it's the source. If all inputs are fuzzy suspect a bad tv.

Change your input source. You are probably on Input Source "TV". My HDMI cable is plugged in INPUT 4 so make sure that your TV is set to the right INPUT.
