Hello,

The reason you are having static noise on only a few channel is as a result of cold joint on a panel, if you are good with soldering iron, panels, disassembling and reassembling the components of a television, then it will be a piece of cake locating the cold joint.

Try to assess the panel carefully and you will find the cold joint, melt it off with the soldering iron and the television will be in good condition once again.

Turn off the television for some time about an hour or two so the high voltage will dissipate.

Take care

It is most likely that this issue is a broadcasting issue and not related to your tv. Signals get messed up while getting to your cable supplier.

Tv picking up channels except its all static, colorless, and loud static noise..


If the set was purchased in the USA it has the USA format which is NTSC--unless the signal is NTSC picture will be in black and white and no sound.

If the signal format there is PAL OR SECAM you will need a converter that takes that and outputs NTSC for the set to work properly there.

Trouble with Channel setup


It is important for the TV to know what type of
signal-Cable TV (CATV) or a normal antenna
you are using. Choose your signal (Antenna or
Cable):
Press MENU to see the main menu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight Setup.
Press OK
to enter the Setup submenu.
TV/CATV is highlighted. Press VOL+ or
VOL-
to select TV or CATV.
Choose CATV if you have Cable TV
service. (See page 4 for connection
details.) If you do not have Cable TV
service and you connected an antenna
to the TV, choose TV. (See page 5 for
connection details.)
Press MENU repeatedly to exit the
menu or the menu will automatically
disappear within a few seconds if no
buttons are pressed on the remote
control.

And here is the manual if you need .

High audio static on all but one channel of my RCA TV


had this problem for a while only just found the cause, its either your tuner flipped out which means you just neded to retune the tv and it should be fixed if not that there was this setting i found still not sure what it is or means but you could select these letters i think there was S, BG and some other ones but i changed it to the top one which was BG and it fixed the static sound with the clear picture problem just stuff around with the channel settings and see if you have that setting hope that helped

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Technically, when a TV signal is said to be snowy, it indicates that the incoming RF signal is weak; on the other hand, when a TV signal has static, this refers to electrical noise that goes with the TV signal.

Having said that, then to your concern:
  • for snowy signal, it is the cable providers problem. They have to change where your incoming cable is tapped from, check/replace the feedin cable itself or worst case scenario, replace the line amp/distribution amplifier feeding your cable input;
  • for static noise, what is required is to check possible sources which could include (but not be limited to) electronic ballasts of florescent lamps, electric fans, hair dryers, shavers, wireless phones, computers and others.
Additionally, you may want to check if you have any RF producing devices attached to the TV such as VCRs, DVDs, game consoles. You can try unplugging them when not in use.

Worst case scenario is the tuner block of the TV is getting weak (unlikely but possibly). You can try rewiring the cable to feed first into a VCR, connect the VCR to any of the free Video IN, and select channels through the VCR. If significant improvement, then you have just confirmed an internal fault with the TV tuner, if problem persists, then the static/noise/low RF is caused by something else.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Vcr recording


if there is a cable box hooked up to this vcr, the vcr needs to stay on channel 3 to record.the output of the vcr either hooks up to the tv from the coax out , or from one of the other possible outputs such as rca cables [red, white, yellow] to one of the tv's aux/video/line in or source inputs.

Can't get cable channels, only goes up to ch. 13


First check and see if you are on Cable or Ant. It sounds like you are on ant. Change it to cable. If you are on cable then it's you tuner, you need to replace it.
