Question about Sanyo AVM-3258S 32" TV

1 Answer

No receipt of signal or antenae

No channels being picked up - all snow (does have sound); when run cable or vhf/uhf channel search, it doesn't pick up any channels but displays message "no signal from antena detected". If we plug another tv into same cable hookup, cable and channels work fine. If we plug this problem tv into another cable hookup, it does same problem...... "no signal detected"
Please advise on how much this might cost to fix and/or alternate routing for signal. Thanks, Shannon

Re: no receipt of signal or antenae

Since it has voice or sound then I don't suspect the tuner but probably the tuner does not have the 33 volts that goes through r106 location number on the board. It is a 27K resistor and can be bought for about a dollar at Radio Shack. (pack of 2or3) A repairman or someone experienced in electronic soldering and desoldering can change it easily. Could cost around $50 to repair depending on the serviceman. If it has rca jacks (red, white and yellow) The tuner can be bypassed if you have a cable box that passed these signals: audio left and right and video. Hope this helps

When I turn the tv on (vega fd trinitron) the scren is all snow. There is no signal.

Have you tested it with auto tuning progremme process. If it snow there, your TV may be working properly. Sometimes its signal input path is not Ok. Without any signal, all TVs may show either snow, or a plane blue raster if its blue back function is on. You just do the automatic tuning process once again after connecting it with an external or internal antenna. There is a socket provided there in the back side of your TV, and marked as VHF/UHF. Connect the signal source to it first.
And set your TV to autotune by slecting it from the menu of your TV. The TV will search for all the channels available at that time, and after searching is completed, it will stop and show the first channel received. Afterwards you can chage or delete or skip unwanted channels. You may have its manual with you. All the descriptions are there in that manual. Ok.

I can't get FOX on my converter box--what is the channel # for FOX?

It could be your antenna. Some retailers sold consumers UHF-only outdoor antennas and not VHF/UHF combo antennas. Other outdoor antennas may not have a power boost included for the VHF antennas (rabbit ears). The new DTV signals from stations are now broadcasting in lower power signals than before June 12.

Outdoor Antenna

KMSP/FOX 9 and KARE 11 both broadcast on VHF signals. WCCO and KSTP broadcast on UHF signals. You will need a VHF/UHF outdoor antenna to pick up KMSP and KARE 11 and also get all the other channels.

Indoor Antenna

Check your antenna to make sure it's a UHF/VHF antenna. You may need an indoor antenna that has rabbit ears -- that is the best way to get KMSP/FOX 9 reception on your TV. Your antenna should have a power boost to amplify the VHF signal if you are having trouble getting FOX 9 or KARE 11.

Make sure you antenna is pointed toward Shoreview, where FOX 9 transmits from.

Skips past all channels after 13. CableVision

I don't know the exact step to set it because I don't know you model TV. When you go to menu set channels it should give you the option to choose cable or air. If you pick cable all your channels will be in VHF which is what you want. If you pick air the first 13 channels will be VHF and the rest will be UHF which cable don't work on. After you pick cable then auto program and you should get all your channels.If this helps you and I hope it does give me a vote please.

You may need a stronger antenna or your neighbor may have only a VHF antenna and most of the digital channels are being broadcast over UHf. . First, though, check the antenna connection as if they are dirty, they may be lowering the signal strength (these are the connections at the antenna). Check for the angel to put the tv antenna at to pick up the most channels. Internal antenna work very poorly. I have been having no problem with my outdoor UHF/VHF antenna, it picks up the same amount of channels in analog and digital.

No uhf with antannae

UHF channels are basically "line of sight" type signals. You need to be pretty near those UHF stations.
You need a Uhf or combination Uhf/ Vhf antenna to receive them - - Usually an out-door type.
Your TV needs to be set in the "antenna" mode to tune beyond channel 13 "air type" channels. Channel 14 is the first UHF channel if you're in the antenna mode. If you're in the "Cable" mode then channel 14 is a cable channel which is operating at a different frequency from UHF.
I hope this will help you!
