RCA television suddenly has problems with cable reception

I have cable connected to my RCA 19" television (no converter box or VCR attached). Picture was great until I moved the set across the room. As a result, channels 2-10 get lousy reception with snow and ghosting. I checked all the connections and still no luck. These channels aren't even recognized while doing a channel search. All the other channels to 100 come in fine. Any ideas?

You have a bad ground connection somewhere. Either the cable has a break in the ground side or there is a connection problem elsewhere. Try with another cable if possible.

Restore sound on my Tv, suddenly lost.


  1. Check if the mute button on the cable box/TV/VCR is activated. If so, turn off the mute feature
  2. Verify the volume on the cable box/TV/VCR is not turned all the way down, either by adjusting the volume level on the equipment itself or with the remote control
  3. Check if the TV has an earphone or headphone jack. If so, make sure there are no earphones or headphones plugged into it
  4. Check if the Cable Box/TV/VCR has a SAP/MTS switch (Secondary Audio Program / Multichannel Television Sound). If so, make sure it is set to the proper setting. Consult your TV/VCR manufacturer's user manual for information for your specific TV/VCR. Click here for information on changing this setting on a Cable Box
  5. Check behind ALL TV and equipment (Cable box, TV, VCR, DVD, stereo receivers, etc) and the coax cable at the wall outlet for any loose or damaged connectors
  6. Make sure all equipment and connections are hooked up correctly for the video and audio based on the type of connections being utilized

Sanyo TV connect to cable box connect DVD player


If your DVD/VCR combo player has three RCA connectors (yellow, red, and white), you can connect them to the corresponding inputs on the front of your TV.

LCD TV IS CONNECTED TO CABLE USING SATELITE. CABLE IS RUN APPROX 150 FT FROM SAT DISH TO TV. RECEPTION IS VERY GRAINY,,,IS IT THE LENGTH OF CABLE? THE CABLE IS 100FT CONNECTED TO 50FT CONNECTED TO TV....


Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

Just getting fuzz, no picture or sound


check that the coax cable is complete and has no internal breaks. get a new piece and even paring both ends to wire you should get pic and sound even if its not clear. then attach new plugs and connect. Also check that the outside cable is still connected. If iit goes up into the roof check mice or rats have not chewed the cable.
Even a rabbits ears antenna should be able to oick up some signal even in a poor reception area.

Sometimes if it snot an antenna problem select rescan on the remote to check for signals

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

Want to hook up Zenith converter box with RCA F25432 TV


Generally you just use either the F port (used often for cable or coaxial connections) or the RCA (composite) inputs.

How do I connect an analog VCR + converter box to a digital TV?


first of all does your television and/or vcr have a cable connector and/or a set of rca outlets? if they have a cable connection in the back all you have to do is hook the cable from the antenna to the "in from antenna" on your cable box and then connect a cable from "out to tv" to "in from antenna" on the vcr and a cable from "out to tv" on the vcr to "in from antenna" on the tv. then you need to make sure on the converter box and the vcr and look for a channel selector and see what channel they are on. most vcr's have a selector for either channel 3 or 4, look at what channel it is set to and if your converter box has the same thing then match it with the vcr. then tune your tv to that channel and you should be able to work your vcr as long as the vcr/tv button shows that you are on the vcr. now if your tv and/or vcr have rca outlets and your converter box has the same then just hook the cable from the antenna to the cable box and substitute the rca cable for the regular cable and tune your tv to video or line input.

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
