I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

All channels are crystal clear except one that is snowy. I have cable.


One snowy channel can be caused by lots of issues, if it is on all tv's in your house, then there is a possibility that you have moisture in your "drop" line to the house or something is wrong in the trasmission lines to your home, but this will usually affect multiple channels in the same freqency range.

If it is only on 1 tv, then you may have a bad jumper cable from wall to tv, or vcr to tv ect.. you may have a bad connector on the feed cable or jumper cables, you may have a bad splitter partially blocking that frequency, or a bad "barrel" / wall plate partially blocking that frequency, the tuner in the tv may be going bad.

My advice is if it is only on 1 tv then move that tv to another room where the channel is fine... see if the problem follows the tv. if it does then you know you have a issue with the tv, if not then move another tv into the room with the problem and see if it still exists. If so start replacing jumper wires 1 by 1 making sure everything is hand tight.

If the problem is in the entire home, then i would locate the main cable input to your home on the outside of your home, dissconnect it from it's ground block / splitter and take a tv outside with an extention cord.. plug it directly into the tv.. if you still have the problem on that channel then you can call your cable company armed with that information. And have them send a tech out.

Good luck.

Snowy picture on VCR with only certain channels


In all likelyhood, you have a bad ground somewhere in the cable. Try other channels through the VCR. If the ground is the problem, there will be a cluster of channels that are snowy with the rest being clear. Check the cable itself and all of the connectors along it.

If the cable and connectors are good, the tuner or power supply of the VCR could be faulty and cause this as well.

I HAD TV ON. EVERYTHING WAS FINE. ALL OF A SUDDEN, IT BECAME SNOWY. LIKE THE CABLE WAS OUT. SO, I TRIED UNHOOKING DIGITAL CABLE BOX. AND HOOKING CABLE STRAIGHT TO THE TV. STILL, IT WOULD NOT GO ANY HIGHER...

Try putting your finger over the aerial socket hole behind the TV while TV is on (using your self as an aerial). If snowy disappears then you have an aerial plug/wire disconnection problem.

One T.V. snowy on Sat., clear on local channels, others are fine?


if you recently got dishnetwork call the company that installed the system for a repair person, they HAVE to fix it. if you put it in yourself it sounds like the lnb is bad or the dishnetwork splitter is bad or not hooked up right. this kind of problem is a reminder that paying an extra $5 a month for service warranty is a good deal. if something is wrong with anything then, a phone call to dishnetwork will get new equipment sent to you or a service tech sent to fix it. i don't presently work for dish or direct or a cable co but i know that's how things work.

If you are on cable, first run the cable wire from the wall directly to the TV, eliminating any cable box and/or VCR. If channel 2 is snowy but the rest (especially 3-6) are clear, it is most certainly a cable problem and not a TV problem. The TV uses the exact same circuits for channel 2 to 6 (VHF-LOW) so if the tuner was bad and 2 was snowy, 3, 4, 5 and 6 would be snowy too. Bring a second TV into that room, disconnect the cable wire from the RCA and connect it to the second TV. Is channel 2 on the second TV as snowy as it was on the RCA?

I have the 13 inch and...


If you get channels 2 to 13 nice and clear but the rest are snowy, it means that the TV is set to the broadcast channels, which means that for the channels above 13 it is tuning in the old-fashioned UHF channels. If the TV is set to the cable mode then it tunes in cable channels above 13. To do this, enter the menu and navigate to the tuner settings, set the tuner to standard cable and then do the autoprogram, and the tuner's memory will be set for your cable system.

Picture is snowy on every channel. I hooked up my playstation and set it to the correct channel but the screen display is the same. I tried using the menu and the menu comes up just fine. The menu goes on...


If one tv looks good and another one dosent look good or operate correctly then we know for sure that the problem is not the antenna. Now the menu comes up ok because the menu is injected after the tuner into the video curcuit from a osd or microprocessor. sounds like you could have a defective tuner or antenna block assy.
