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.

MY NEW HAIER 7" TV SAYS "NO DATABASE"! AND WHEN


Hi there,

Don't throw it away just yet. It's still under warranty so returning it would be far better than throwing it away ;)

As you can tune the cable channels OK, I suspect there is a problem with the reception from the antenna and the signal strength is too low. Please can you answer the following simple questions so that I can help you to solve this problem

1. What antenna are you using - indoor/rabbit ears or outdoor/roof antenna?
2. Do you have a good reception on another TV connected to the same antenna ?

If you are using an indoor antenna, try moving the TV to another location to see if you can get a better reception.

Please let me know the answers to the above questions. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

Connection


A couple possible ways:

1. The VCR has 2 threaded coax connectors on the back. One is input for your cable or satellite. The other is the output to the TV. You would set the TV on channel 3 or 4 (selectable on the back of the VCR). Put TV on channel 3, insert a tape and press play. When the VCR is off, the cable or satellite input is routed to the TV.

2. If your TV has Video and Audio RCA connectors, you can connect the VCR that way. You would then put the TV on Video 1 or Video 2 or whatever your TV set supports.

Good luck!

Toshiba 9" TV/VCR W/CAR AC/DC - No power when on battery


I would check on the inside for a disconnected wire or loose connection at the Dc imput if it still works on ac. You can most likely get a service manual at http://www.servicemanuals.net/ if the wires are intact on the DC imput and the jack itself fits secure to the adapter. Hope this helps
