Didn't work... still only snow

Any other ideas. I would think that this should be a simpler fix.

    I had everything on, as suggested, and went through the menu options. Checked set up, checked channels. Continued getting snow. The only button that doesn't give me snow is AUX... which gives me a grey screen...but that doesn't respond to any other commands. Any channel selections return the snow.

    I have tried unplugging and replugging the tv in hope that it might reset... but did not.

    If I have misunderstood the technician, perhaps I need step by step instructions.

    While installing a new dvd/vhs
    recorder-player to my Hitachi 31cx6b, I mistakenly set the new remote
    on the Hitachi remote and bumped a few buttons. I instantly lost the
    picture and have nothing but snow on all channels.

    Please advise how I regain the picture.

    It sounds as though the TV [video monitor {Hitachi}] is not set to an input that is sending a signal. Snow is the result.

    Cycle through the inputs on the set with ALL devices ready to send signal.

    If you have good access to the input area you should see all of the names and what is plugged into each.

    Tell us exactly what you did do.

Advent Tv on direct tv with snow showing on screen

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

Flashing, slow startup, and finally, just snow

Try resoldering the pcb, especially the heat producing components on the pcb, do it with the crt base card too, I guess this will fix this up. Good luck.

Second toshiba tv and they both do the same thing

Hi, It is possible that your Toshiba is set to receive aerial TV programs and not Cable TV programs. You need to go to the set-up menu (via remote) and go to the air/cable selection. Choose cable and then auto search/scan. This is a generic procedure and should work with your particular brand/model but the terms/names may just be a bit different. You may also consult the users manual for the exact procedure. Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Picture problem when I use an external antennae

You cant unless you have been trained to trouble shoot solid state electronics as this set has no user serviceable parts inside and is best left to the pro tech to service. good Luck
