If it is an ITC 222 (seen at the back of the tv) you have the micro switches bad where the on-off /volume and channel up-down are located on the front of the set. They have to be soldered out and new ones put back. Not a costly repair depending on the tech you choose. The front panel has to be removed to get to the switches. All of them need to be changed. A tempoary fix is to use contact cleaner directly onto the switches after taking the panel off, However changing them will fix it for good for a long time
More information would help. What are you running the signal into the TV with? Coax? Separate video/audio? To test the set if you have a vcr hooked up or available to hook up, input it into the tuner input and play a tape. Set the tv to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel the output of the vcr is set for, this can be determined by checking the menu or a switch on the back if it is an older vcr). If your TV is ok you should be able to see the tape which is playing. If not, and you still have snow you probably need a new tuner in the set. Let me know if you need more help.
Yes. Its probably a stuck button on the TV's front panel. Try pushing or wiggling each button on the panel. It could be the channel up/down buttons or volume up/down, menu, etc.
When there is a button that is making slight contact, it keeps the microprocessor busy attending to the command its erroneously receiving from the offending button and may not allow other functions to work when this occurs.
It doesn't matter which button is stuck, any of the symptoms you describe can happen.
RCA HAD A CERTAIN MODEL SERIES THAT HAD A REALLY BAD DESIGN,,IT SEEMS THAT SOLDER CONNECTIONS STARTED BREAKING LOOSE AND DEPENDING WHERE THEY CAME LOOSE,,YOU WOULD HAVE PROBLEMS IN THAT CERTAIN CIRCUIT..TO DETERMINE IF YOU HAS THAT SERIES,,WE WOULD NEED THE CHASSIS # ON THE BACK...
IF THE CONNECTIONS CAME LOOSE IN THE VERTICAL CIRCUIT--THE PICTURE WOULD CLOSE UP ,,IF IN THE TUNER SECTION--YOU WOULD LOOSE CHANNELS ,,IF IT WAS IN THE AUDIO SECTION--YOU WOULD GET CRACKLYN SOUND OR NO SOUND
ONE THING YOU CAN TRY--PUT IT BACK IN THE TV MODE,,GENTLY TAP ON THE CABLE CONNECTOR IN THE BACK OF THE SET AND SEE IF IT CLEARS UP,,IF SO YOU HAVE THE CONNECTION ISSUE--WILL NEED A TECH..GOOD LUCK ..TUNICA
I was tring to remove the concave off my screen and came across a setting where you can make the picture larger or smaller. On the TV, not the remote, press and hold the menu button, press and release the power button, press and release the volume up button and release the menu button. P0 and V0 will be displayed on the screen press the volume up button until the V0 is V76. Press the channel up button until P0 is P11 and press the volume up/down button to make the picture larger/smaller. If you need to center the picture press the channel down button until P11 is P10 and press the volume up/down button to center your picture. I hope this helps
The first thing that I would check is in the audio menu to see if it is set on the SAP mode (secondary audio programming). If it is and there is no audio being broadcast on that channel, then you would have to turn SAP to off (which is usually what it is set to).
Now there have been problems with the audio dropping out on regular CRT style RCA televisions where the audio would drop out, and you had to unplug the set for about 30 seconds to reset the TV, and I would try that next.
