These Sony tuners have bad solder connections inside on the printed circuit board. If you can solder and take out the tuner, you can send it to ptscorp.com for an overhaul. A new tuner will cost you about 80 bucks or so. Good luck.

Sounds like poor solder on the ground conections of the tuner, depending on the age of the TV frostman

I have auto programmed the television, but it only shows white snow no matter what. I have also fine tuned it as well. The model is shownic lc26ce80r. Can you help


My personal guess would be that there is no signal coming through to your tv or the wrong signal coming through. I have the opposite problem...we get picture (snowy) but no sound except that of snow and the Audio/Sound options are NOT helpful. Wish I could be of better help.

I have no picture.


Just a thought from out of date tv user. Make sure there is power at outlet. If you have cable or antenna connected, make sure it is set to the right mode. One mode is all the tv channels, another is simply a second imput like vcr, and may have a third mode for games etc. On mine, each mode is specific to a set of terminals (yell/red/wht) on the tv back side (3 sets of terminals back there with each used with one mode), if in the wrong mode won't connect with input signal. Switch tv on then find the mode switch and try each one to see if you can get a picture or even snow. May also have some auto feature that if signal isn't detected, it won't startup the big screen (so you don't get blast of loud sound and snowy picture), try a spare tv on the input signal to see if the input signal is there and working. Hope that helps.

Picture shows snow and fuzz on channels JVC AV-32980


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.

1996 RCA Color TV model G27720tn


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?

RCA F27650 27" TV - Snow Bursts


The model you listed, F27650 uses the new ATC113 series chassis, which is only about 3 years old. The ATC113 chassis is not known to have snowy issues, but if yours is then I would suspect that a solder joint is loose in the tuner. If your set is actually around 9 years old, then it might perhaps have the notorious CTC175 - CTC187 series chassis, which went snowy all the time due to cracked solder joints on the shield grounds around the tuner and microprocessor. In either case, some good quality resoldering should cure your trouble. If you have never done fine solder work on PC boards with small surface-mount parts, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
