Occassional bad noise and picture

RCA 32 inch ColorTrak Plus. TV is hooked to cable. I can produce the problem by wiggling the coax connector - even with no cable attached. TV is from October 1996 and belongs to my mother-in-law, age 90. Repair shop estimate is $95 to $105 to fix on site. Is it worth fixing?

    TV is connected coaxial to cable (no box). Occasionally, the channel will go fuzzy and deterrioate all together. Going to coaxial cable and "moving it" will resolve issue.

How do i hook up mono tv with eterxnal speakers with a dvr box

If the DVR has RCA-type connectors, yellow to yellow for picture, and white to white for sound. Tune tv to line input.
If the DVR supports outputting everything on coax, use a piece of coax cable, and tune tv to channel 3.
Your coax cable from wall has to go into DVR first, then out to tv.

RCA 27 inch ColorTrak Plus. TV is hooked to cable. I can produce the problem by wiggling the coax connector. The screen goes through various degrees of snowy-ness until I find the sweetspot on the coax....

The failure with this TV is due to faulty ground in the tuner that is why when you wiggle the cable connected to the tuner the picture clears up. If this failure is not repair, it will corrupt the data on the eprom until the TV will not power ON anymore.
Check the info from this link to find more info on the failure of your TV.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

LCD TV IS CONNECTED TO CABLE USING SATELITE. CABLE IS RUN APPROX 150 FT FROM SAT DISH TO TV. RECEPTION IS VERY GRAINY,,,IS IT THE LENGTH OF CABLE? THE CABLE IS 100FT CONNECTED TO 50FT CONNECTED TO TV....

Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

Getting sound from DVD player but not a picture

Are you sure all cables are secure in the back and that all cables are in their appropriate place?

It could also be other variables dealing with the actual signal from the cable company. I have had an experience with an unshielded coax cable that was tweaking out due to a thunder storm.

Post back after you have checked all cables and also call your cable company to see if there are any problems with the broadcast currently, as that could be a cause.

Best of luck.

Female coax connector in tv bad?

If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
