Hi there, I have a hatachi tv (C2980FS). Unable to find much info on this tv on the net but it is having problems and i dont know if i should put it down.... It turns on ok and has on screen display fine, so can change channels and sound and get into menu etc, however, every channel is covered in snow and you can hadly see the picture at all (u can really juts make out outlines amounst the snow/static). Also, picture is black and white with some colour washing in every now and then, osd is colour. I have also tried using the av plugs and it also has the same snow. there is no sound as far as i can tell, however if i turn the volume right up, i hear faint soiunds but i cant make out if its static/audio circuit picking up random interference. Thinking it is relating to the AGC but need help as this is effecting av, not just tuning from what i can see. Any help much appreciated. I'm not a service man but have made some good repairs before to things... Cheers
The problem you're describing sounds like a tuner problem. BUT you say that you have the same problem with A-V input too. That's weird!!! Possibly the electronic TV-AV switching circuit is messed up and stuck in the TV (tuner) position. If this is the case you DO have a tuner problem and a switching problem too.
Nicam digital sterio hitatchi ACHI colour tv serial C284 6TN belongs to my mother. she has lost mannual and has been playing with knobs. unable to tune . olease help
Thanks, I think you are correct, av seems to show same kind of static (you can see the same faint picture as on tv). will start looking into tuner and see if i can get that going first before looking at the av switching area. Thanks for your help.
