I am having the same problem on my 52" LCD (see link for pictures). I think it is a cold solder joint on the tunner. I am going to re-solder any cold joints I can find. Happends when it gets a little warm like when the sun is shinning in my living room.

You could have a bad spitter or a fitting could have come loose.First thing to do is to take another TV set right next to the bad TV set and plug in the cable to the other TV set to see if the same issue happens. If it does there is a cable issue. If it does not have a snowy picture, then you should call the store where you purchaced the set for exchange or service. Good Luck

    To a point yes, because of the screen door effect that is present on oh so many LCD sets.

Picture is not clear, alittle snowy

the first thing u need to do if the picture is snowy and u have cable is u can call them out to check out the cable line if u dont what to to that if u have another tv set u could hook up in the same spot as your other tv that is snowy and see if the other tv is doing the same thing if it is u know it is your antenna systems and not your tv, now if it is your tv it will have a bad tuner in the set but if u have a vcr u could hook the vcr thru the video inputs that is on your tv and then switch your tv to video source and use your vcr as a tunner thru your video input on the tv and u dont have to speen any money on a repair and it will work just like your tv tuner does.

First of all, I'm not an expert but you might wanna change your cables. Bad and cheap cables are usually the reason for bad and snowy picture. Good luck!

Snowy picture

Hi,

A snowy video indicates that your input signal is relatively weak. On the other hand, a noisy picture is when there are too much interference is super imposing on the video.

Snowy picture comes about when the signal coming in the RF INput (Ant/Cable) at the back of the unit is below a certain level. If this is the case, then it is not a problem with your TV but rather your aerial (antenna) or the cable from your provider. A way to verify that it is the ant/cable that is the cause and not a defective TV/tuner is to hook up an old VCR set to Ch. 3 or 4 to the RF IN of your TV using a short 75 ohms coaxial cable terminated at both ends with FP-5 connector. Play a known clear good tape and set your TV to Ch. 3 or 4 as the case maybe. If the picture is relatively clearer, better, then you have just confirmed that it is indeed your aerial or your cable (provider) that needs looking into. If on the other hand, the VCR signal is also snowy then chances are that you have a problem with the input stage of your TV including possibly your tuner.

For your aerial problem, antenna orientation or replacing with a higher gain antenna might help solve the snowy signal. For your cable problem, you have to call-in for service from your cable provider. If it is a TV problem, your best course would be to seek the services of a qualified TV technician since this involve electronic circuitry analysis, diagnosis and possible component replacements.

Additionally, you may try looking for any loose connection, loose grounding, broken wire or anything out of the ordinary in your connections.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

1996 RCA Color TV model G27720tn

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?

Please help snowy/ fuzzy picture

If you can move the TV to a known good working cable feed and connect it there. if the picture looks normal then most likely you have a bad splitter, a bad fitting or even a bad cable box on that TV.

Hello, the best option for you is to put another (small) TV instead of plasma to check whether your cable is OK. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
