Re: Sony KV 2084R
Is this set attached to cable?? have you tryed another set in this sets place first??? if so then the tuner on the sets probably bad but make sure the signals good on another set and not just on a default cable station on the tv like channel 3 or 4 .If another set looks crappy too then call the cable company.. if its on an outside antenna(do they still use those LOL)then see what others in the area are getting for reception. sorry My friend I cant answer any farther till you come back with more for me in my questions.

have a service tech check your tuner section for problems. are these channels snowy? if they are it is most likely no or limited amount nof frequency or not enough voltage going to tuner. this could be caused by a resistor or diode problem.
In all likelyhood, you have a bad ground somewhere in the cable. Try other channels through the VCR. If the ground is the problem, there will be a cluster of channels that are snowy with the rest being clear. Check the cable itself and all of the connectors along it.
If the cable and connectors are good, the tuner or power supply of the VCR could be faulty and cause this as well.
If you are on cable, first run the cable wire from the wall directly to the TV, eliminating any cable box and/or VCR. If channel 2 is snowy but the rest (especially 3-6) are clear, it is most certainly a cable problem and not a TV problem. The TV uses the exact same circuits for channel 2 to 6 (VHF-LOW) so if the tuner was bad and 2 was snowy, 3, 4, 5 and 6 would be snowy too. Bring a second TV into that room, disconnect the cable wire from the RCA and connect it to the second TV. Is channel 2 on the second TV as snowy as it was on the RCA?
