Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels


It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

Not receiving my local cable stations


You need to make sure the TV is set for "cable" tuning and not "standard" or "air." (If you are getting only local off-air channels and no cable stations at all, be sure you have a good cable and connection to the set. Normally, even if the TV is set for "air" you will get the low-number cable channels 2-13.) This is usually a selection through the TV's set-up menu. With a universal remote, it may be difficult or even impossible to get to all the menu entries. Most replacement remotes don't support all the original remote functions. Try with yours and good luck. Once you get the TV set to the proper tuning, you should have all your cable channels.

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.

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.

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?

I have the 13 inch and...


If you get channels 2 to 13 nice and clear but the rest are snowy, it means that the TV is set to the broadcast channels, which means that for the channels above 13 it is tuning in the old-fashioned UHF channels. If the TV is set to the cable mode then it tunes in cable channels above 13. To do this, enter the menu and navigate to the tuner settings, set the tuner to standard cable and then do the autoprogram, and the tuner's memory will be set for your cable system.

Picture is snowy on every channel. I hooked up my playstation and set it to the correct channel but the screen display is the same. I tried using the menu and the menu comes up just fine. The menu goes on...


If one tv looks good and another one dosent look good or operate correctly then we know for sure that the problem is not the antenna. Now the menu comes up ok because the menu is injected after the tuner into the video curcuit from a osd or microprocessor. sounds like you could have a defective tuner or antenna block assy.
