Question about RCA F31317 31" TV

1 Answer

TV gets all channels, except 2-6

TV worked fine until the channels 2-6 disappeared and all I get is fuzz. We checked other tvs in the house, and channels 2-6 were still showing, so it must be the TV. We switched out the TV with another one, and that one works fine, so it's not the cable or any of the connections. Any ideas?

    I tried the suggested solution about setting the control to cable tv, and it was already set that way. Husband was playing with it this afternoon, and somehow got these channels to appear. However, when you turn the TV off, they disappear again. Can't get it to show the channels again this evening. Still have a problem!

In most cases when you set your menu ("tuner section") to cable, the tv will pick up all channels, but if you set it to "off air" or "antenna" (or whatever the other choice is labeled), then the tv will only go up to about channel 50 or 60. Are you using cable, dish, or an antenna on top of your house. If using cable or dish, then go into the menu on your tv and set the tuner to "cable". I am pretty certain that your tuner is NOT currently set on "cable" and that also there are no local "off air" channels in your area on 2 thru 6, therefore, you see snow on these channels. I have repaired hundreds of tv's and I feel very strongly that your problem is in your menu.

Channels 1 through 47 will come in and out but most of the time they dont come in at all. There will be fuzz for a second and then the screen turns blue. The upper channels work fine and dont cut out.


You need to check your antenna connections, and your Signal Amplifier, this sounds like that is your problem, IF you have visually and electrically proved your Antenna, cable, plugs, joints, and Amplifier are all OK, then you may have a fault in your tuner.

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.
