Make sure your RF wires are of good quality.(Quad shielded) Also try replacing the splitters you use. Buy 2.4 GHZ bi-directional for digital cable. Or Good 5-1000GHZ blonder tongue splitters for analogue cable. If all else fails you can contact you cable company to check you signal coming into your home. There might be a bad or weather beaten cable causing problems with you signal. Also the will provide you with free cable to replace some of your distribution. Hope some of this helps. :]

Ok..Donna,

From what I've heard here, you are experiencing a channel 'source' issue, which means that this specific channel, is NOT tuning properly. The biggest possible cause of this will NOT be your set. The tuning device, from your service providor, or something up stream in their system, causes this. I'd recommend you simply call the supplier, report this, and have them come out and check for the trouble.

Picture and sound are out of sync As with all products that contain a digital display, in rare instances, when viewing certain content (e.g.. television broadcasts, video games, DVD), you may notice that the sound and picture are slightly out of sync. This phenomenon can be caused by various factors including, without limitation, video processing within the TV, video processing in an attached gaming system, and video processing/different compression rates used by broadcasters in their programming. You may want to try one or more of the following suggestions, which may help to reduce the effect of this phenomenon:

  • If the TV is connected to an external A/V device (e.g., DVD player, video game system, set-top-box, etc.) always try to use the Color Stream video jacks and corresponding audio jacks or the HDMI input (if available on your TV) for connection to such external A/V device.

  • If the TV is connected to an A/V receiver that has a programmable audio delay feature, use this feature to help synchronize the sound to the picture.

  • If connected to a video game system and your TV has the Game Mode feature (see owner's manual for more information), enable this feature.

  • If you notice this phenomenon only on certain TV channels, please contact your local broadcast, cable, or satellite provider to inform them of this issue.
I hope that this can help you

    If you have a converter box, make sure your TV set and/or VCR is tuned to channel 3. Also make sure the switch on your TV that says "Cable/TV" is in the "Cable" position. Make sure all connections to the converter, TV and VCR are secure,

    Check another channel it may be a station problem.

    From time to time, you may experience a problem with your television picture that can easily be fixed. Trying to fix it yourself will save you time and may even save you money on television repair. Please refer to this list before you call your local cable office's customer service department.



    • No Signal from Converter
      Check to make sure your TV channel selected for the proper converter output channel (example: Ch. 2, 3 or 4).
    • Rolling Picture
      Adjust "vertical hold" on your TV set.
    • Picture Leans to Side
      Try adjusting "horizontal hold" on your TV set.
    • Wrong Channel
      Check TV dial and converter for channel setting. Make sure TV is set to the output channel of your converter box or VCR.
    • Snow on Screen
      Check to make sure cable connections are tight, and if you are using a converter make sure the converter is turned on and plugged into a working outlet.
    • No Picture, No Sound
      Make sure TV set is plugged into "live" electrical outlet, and not controlled by a wall switch. Push red "reset" button on back of TV set, if your TV has one. Adjust "brightness" control on your TV set.
    • Picture Shrinks
      Power circuits in your TV set are not operating properly.
    • No Picture/Blue screen
      Check channel setting on converter and TV set. Check listing to make sure channel is broadcasting during this time slot. Wait for TV station announcement of difficulty. Check other channels to compare reception. Check VCR cable connections.

Sound and just a Static picture when playing a VCR tape on a Sharp 13vt-N100


More likely a damaged tape got inserted, if the video heads get blocked or even partly blocked every tape after will do this, heads can be cleaned manually (careful if not sure how to do it) or a cleaning tape MAY clear this up or not.

Want play from antenna


May just not be good enough antenna to receive the signal--try to with the remote direct enter a channel you expect to see and if it works you can in the menu add that to the memory---manually enter and add each possible channel.

My Regza digital TV has problems with reception. Several channels are perfect, but others keep breaking up and freezing both audio and visual. Other stations have no signal at all. My husband as a result...


I have the same problem with not much help from the store where i brought my TV from, they sell their items but as to good old after sales service it is non exsistant unless you are buying. They suggested it was the co-axial cable and also said the most likely factor is if you have a VCR connected then each time you want to watch TV take the aerial out of the VCR and put it directly into the TV, good one if you want to record on the VCR, this doesnt help the problem. Same you, I am still stuck with reception problems. By the way I have a 42' digital in the Loungeroom with VCR, DVD, Surround Sound all hooked up (& to same aerial on roof) with no reception problems, the one I am having trouble with is small digital TV in bedroom (room is next to loungeroom). I am on the Gold Coast in good reception area. Wonder if anyone has found a solution yet.

Connecting a DVD/VCR combo to LCD TV


The best suggestion I would advise is to buy a shielded scart connector & connect that from your DVD combi to either AV1 OR AV2. It sounds as if you are picking up RF interference from your current connections, this can sometimes happen if the cables do not have adequate shielding.

Cable stations 2 - 12 fussy, distorted. All higher channels perfect.


This is caused by a bad ground connection. Check all of the connectors to be sure they are not loose. Also check the cables themselves. It is possible that the ground connection inside the set is bad too. If the cables and connections appear to be OK, try moving the set to another location where the picture is good. If hte pitcture is still bad, the TV tuner may have a problem internally.
Keep us posted.

Poor reception


It sounds like a problem with the tuner in the TV set. Hook up a VCR through the video inputs and hook the cable through the VCR and if the picture is still snowy, the problem is the cable. If the picture is clear, the problem is the tuner in the TV set. If you wanted, you could simply leave the VCR attached to the TV set and change cable channels through the VCR, or have the TV serviced. Good Luck

LOSS OF T.V. PICTURE


My television has sound but no picture. I can not program the television because I can not see the screen menu. I also have tried to change the antennae but this does nothing to the picture's reception.

Do you have any ideas to correct this problem. There is no warranty.

1. Check the TV's horizontal and vertical hold. 2. If there is a VCR connected: Shut off the VCR. If the problem clears up, the VCR is not properly ?fine-tuned.? Turn the VCR on and troubleshoot the VCR problems. 3. If a converter is connected to your TV and VCR: The VCR needs to be on channel 4. VCR may not be ?fine-tuned? to channel 4. Locate and adjust the fine-tuning mechanism until the picture comes in clearly. The <3/4> switch may be in the wrong position. Locate the switch on the back of the VCR and set it to <4>. 4. Check the fine-tuning of your TV. good luck :-)
