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.

Antenna hook up


If you are using an indoor Antenna:
1- the most probable reason would be the location of the antenna and TV in an area where the reception is very low. Indoors all houses are affected by the running electrical circuits which in turn generate magnetic field that together with the structure of the house obstruct or weaken the wave signals of wireless and TV reception. Also this issue may be aggravated by the vicinity you are live in. Where you are living may not have the optimum reception from some services including TV signals. Your best bet is to try moving the (Indoor) antenna closer to the outside (such as windows, or better to a balcony) and try all four directions of the house.
2- One other possibility, is the antenna jack being disconnected from one of its wires (or a de-solder) at an internal part of its circuit). This problem can be detected by trying another antenna that is working good when used with another TV (and preferably at a different location) thus testing for the possible weak signal at the same time.
3- The last possible issue is the antenna receptacle built onto the Tv set. This may have a problem of some element of it disconnected internally on the board or de-soldered..
If the Antenna is external, all the above points are still valid, but the probability is higher, for some hidden disconnection on the receptacle, the antenna plug or at the connection of the co-axial cable with the external antenna. (Once I found a co-axial cable with disconnections of its central copper wire within the protective insulating coat- probably due to defects in the plastic coat that had microscopic holes that allowed air and humidity into the central wire and caused it to corrode and have those discontinuities)..

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.

Moved, no longer have cable and not getting any channels via attenna. Is it just bad reception or do I need a digital converter because of the change to digital stations?


Could be bad reception and or make sure the tv which was in the cable mode when you had cable now needs to be in air or antenna mode. IF you have another tv that works ok then you will know the channels just need to be reprogrammed for over the air signal. Go into the menu of tv and find program channels and switch to air or it might say antenna..

Only goes up to Channel 19.


Go into the TV's setup screen and make sure its tuning mode is set for "cable" (may say "CATV"). I'm not familiar with this set so I don't know exactly what the screen will say, but there should be some reference to channel setup, TV setup, tuning band, etc. It's probably set on "AIR" now.

Normally, when set for off-air reception, the set works properly for channels 2 through 13, and 14 up don't tune properly. Since you're getting channels up to 19, there may in fact be some kind of tuner problem. If the TV is already set for cable tuning, you may have found why the former owner was freecycling it. But check that tuning mode.

No cable signal


somewhere in the tv's menu (or a button on the tv or remote) there should be a way to change the tuner setting from antenna to cable. you may have to make the tv run through autotune. a switch or button may be on the back of the set, close to the
cable connector.

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.

Quasar VV-2001 TV/VCR combo - msg: Check Antenna Cable Connection


Check first the antenna using another TV. If there is no other TV available, check using an ohmeter. If you are 100% sure tha the antenna is ok then the antenna connector on your Tv is not making a good connection to the antenna plug.
