Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Picture Channels 2 to 7 plus 15 and 21 are snowy but no sound. All the other channels are fine. I plugged the cable line directly into the TV and same problem. Plug the same cable line into another TV and I get all the channels. I have tried everything in the menu. Any idea? Thanks

Ther is a test you could do is you had the proper equipment, and that would be to inject a know good RF signal into the tunner F connector and chech tha point where the RF/IF is converted to audio and video, to determine if the proble is a bad tuner or not. The equipment is a VA62A Universal Video Analyzer. Its a great piece of equipment for this type of work. another thing you can do is get an RF Modulator from Radio shack and input a video and audio signal in to it and set it to channel 3 and connect the F connector to the TVs F connector. The set the TV to channel 3 you should see the picture and hear sound in channel 3. The VA62A is best because you can set it to emulate all of your channels from 1-87 standard TV and Cable TV. In any event a test needs to be run to see if the tunner is at fault.

No sound on analog channels

Grab your sharp remote and press MENU, arrow over to SETUP, arrow down to RESET and press enter and follow that prompt to reset the unit. Once that is complete turn the tv off and unplug ONLY the tv for one minute then plug it back in. Then turn the tv on and see if you have channels, if you do, your audio should work on you analog stations, if you have no channels and all you see is a snowy picture do the following press MENU, arrow over to SETUP...arrow down to CH SETUP and press ENTER...you will then be at a screen that says AIR/CABLE, press ENTER, select CABLE or CABLE(STD) if that option is available to you. after then, arrow down to CH SEARCH, press ENTER, then you should be highlighted on ANALOG AND DIGITAL SEARCH...press ENTER and wait for 15-30 minutes ( or until you get a picture back) and make sure you DO NOT press any buttons or turn the tv off and you should be good. good luck 2 u

Snowy picture

The remote doesn't effect the channels, I would say you have poor signal or interference from another device nearby.

Snowy picture on VCR with only certain channels

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.

Power went out while tv & Direct TV was on

The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.

If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.

If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.

One T.V. snowy on Sat., clear on local channels, others are fine?

if you recently got dishnetwork call the company that installed the system for a repair person, they HAVE to fix it. if you put it in yourself it sounds like the lnb is bad or the dishnetwork splitter is bad or not hooked up right. this kind of problem is a reminder that paying an extra $5 a month for service warranty is a good deal. if something is wrong with anything then, a phone call to dishnetwork will get new equipment sent to you or a service tech sent to fix it. i don't presently work for dish or direct or a cable co but i know that's how things work.

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?
