Blurry Sanyo TV

Hi everyone, I just bought a used 32" older Sanyo tv. Anyway, we got it home and hooked it to Direct Tv receiver, put it on ch.3 but the picture is snowy and the sound has static, like its not tuned into the right channel. So I tried hooking it into the VCR alone, same picture. So at this point I thought maybe we bought a lemon, however when I put it on video mode (blue screen) its clear. Besides, I would think if it were the tv either the sound OR picture would be going out, but not BOTH at once. I keep thinking I don't have it on the right channel but I've gone thru all the channels. It goes from 01-99 & 117 channels. Any advice?

Well after playing around with the tv some more, I decided the problem was probably the cable jack, and tried running the video in/out cables thru the VCR to get around this, which I read generally works but in this case nothing. I had tried the tv on various settings, anytime I put the tv in "video" mode I'd get a blue screen and nothing else. Anyway I found a switch in the back of the Direct Tv box for ch. 3 & 4 settings. So I flipped it but still got a snowy picture, only this time it was on ch 4 instead of ch 3. By sheer accident I put the tv back in video mode while I had the satilites setting to ch 4, and the picture came up crystal clear. Since I didn't mess with it further, I'm not sure if it was the channel selector or the fact that hooked the tv up via the video cables, but whatever it was it did the trick.

I just KNEW this could not be a broken tv despite the fact that everhwere I read online suggested it was. I knew pictures can go out, or sound can go out....but to have BOTH go out didn't make sense to me. Anyway, glad its working! :)

Hello
You haven't stated the type of signals that comes with your co-axial cable; analogue or digital. Anyway, you have to retune the TV after connecting it properly with Cox-Cable receiver with TV.

Use the tv remote to put the tv on ch 4. Use the direct tv then to select channel of the direct tv box. The box is broadcasting to the tv on ch 4. Also check that tv is on correct input . Again use the Panasonic remote to select correct input. If this does not work call direct tv for assistance.

I have a 20 inch sanyo hd digital hooked up as a second tv on dish network receiver. I had to unhook it temp and when I hooked it back up, no picture. I tried channel scan and nothing. How can I get the tv...


bring the tv out to the main tv and hook it up to that connection to determine if it's the TV or the connection. Or try hooking up a VCR to the tv while the TV is set to CH 3. Do you get a blank picture or a snowy Picture?
