Phillips 32" LCD TV, locked into "digital" mode and no signal, blue screen only. Originally is worked in both modes, then digital signal vanished to blue screen only (including no menu options), then finally on trying it again it has now locked into digital mode, and the 5 second menu button does not hard reset it, neither does powering down and or removing the mains for several minutes. This TV is about 15 months old and had a 12 month warranty!!

SOURCE: RCA HD50LPW62AYX2 WILL NOT STAY ON

My HD50LPW62AYX2 RCA TV sometimes reverses the blue and reds. The peoples faces are blue, especially the lips.
Sometimes turning the TV off and then back on again fixes the problem. At other times this correction is good for only a second or two.
Do you have an English owner's manual available on line or otherwise available?

Mine was doing the same thing. Update the firmware and it fixes the problem. Updating the firmware is done by downloading the file to a thumb-drive from the phillips product support page then plugging in the drive into the side of your television and turning it on. See your manual for slightly better instructions.

SOURCE: TV TURNS OFF ITSELF AND 15 SECOND LATER IT COMES

This is a Heat issue with the front sensor of the TV. Dust and Dirt block the sensor causing it to heat up faster and faster. Cleaning the lamp is extremely easy and it will get the TV working again, at least for a short while and then it will happen again. I know cause its been happening to me and it will work for about two weeks and start happening again. Sony actually has a class action lawsuit against them for this issue. Long story short here are the steps to correct the issue:
1. power down TV and disconnect from the power outlet then let sit for 30 minutes until its colled down 2. On the bottom corners of the TV (Back side) you will find a round screw that you can loosen with your fingers 3. once both screws are lose the front bottom part of the TV will pull off, there are magnets there so it will hold it in place temporarily. 4. Once the cover is removed, in the center of the TV will be a little door with another Finger screw to loosen, once off move the bar holding the door closed and remove the plate. 5. You will need an Alan wrench, the screw will be in the upper left corner, when this is loosened the screw will not fall out and you can pull out the Light fixture 6. CAREFULLY with compressed air spray the light assembly and the inside of the TV very well and then replace the light bulb. 7. Put the Door back on the front of the Light area, and assemble the rest of the TV in reverse order before testing the TV. I have done this multiple times as this is not a permanent fix but does restore life for a short period of time.

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY TV IS 720 OR 1080 ALSO HOW CAN I TELL THE MEGA HERTZ


Go to the Magnavox site and look up your set, or do a search on the net for the model number.
I found a spec sheet at: http://www.annunci-qui.com/14/posts/16_Annunci_Audio_tv_foto/103_televisori_e_proiettori/461_MAGNAVOX_50ML8105D_50.html
This set will only work up to true 1080i. It will not work in true true 1080p which is the full HD mode. They don't say it clearly in the specs, but its 1080p mode is an up-converted mode. The cable or satellite box has to be able to handle 1080 modes. For normal viewing in HD this set should be visually very good. Only a Blue Ray DVD player and some other types of gadgets are able to put out a 1080p video signal.
Cable and satellite services are normally in 720i, some are in 720p, and a few specialty feeds are in 1080i. Most satellite and cable TV boxes cannot support anything above 720i.
The lamp life is 4000 hours. The lamp is fairly expensive to replace. I would seriously consider to upgrade to an LCD or Plasma display. The new generation of TV sets are far superior to the DLP types. Whatever type you choose, make sure it can work with true 1080p.
Go in to some of the show rooms and compare a projected type TV (if they still have them) to a true flat screen. All the projected type screens can never achieve the sharpness and aspect ratio accuracy of a flat screen set.

1. Do I need any additional equipment to watch HDTV broadcasts on my HDTV-compatible TV?
In order to view over-the-air (OTA) HDTV broadcasts, you need to be within the reception area of a TV station broadcasting HDTV signals. Some TVs may require a set-top HDTV tuner and an external antenna to receive the broadcasts. Your cable or satellite provider may also offer HDTV channels as a part of their service, eliminating the need for a separate tuner. Please contact your local service provider to find out what kind of HDTV services they may offer.

2. What is CableCARD and how does it work?
HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card from your cable provider that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcasts without a bulky set-top cable box. Please call your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area.

HDMI, which stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface", is the consumer electronic industry's first connection capable of transmitting uncompressed digital audio/video signals. Components featuring HDMI can transmit both digital audio and video over one convenient cable, replacing the tangled mess that resides behind many home theater components. HDMI also offers improved quality over traditional analog connections thanks to all-digital transmission. Digital sources like DVDs and HDTV programming can now be transferred digitally from source to display without analog conversions that can degrade the original signal.

Unlike the HDMI interface, DVI only handles digital video. Through the use of an adapter, a DVI device can be connected to an HDMI device, but only video content can be transmitted. The audio signal would have to be transmitted through other methods such as analog RCA outputs or an optical digital output.

4. What's the difference between 720p and 1080i HDTV broadcasts? Does my CRT projection HDTV support both?
HDTV signals can be broadcast in either 720p and 1080i. It's up to the broadcaster which signal format to use, and both have their benefits. Our CRT projection HDTVs display 1080i signals in their native format. For 720p broadcasts, you can use the settings on your HDTV set-top tuner, cable box, or satellite tuner to convert a 720p signal into a 1080i signal that your TV can display.

btn_top_gold.gif spacer.gif line_gold.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif5. Why do I still see black bars on my widescreen TV when viewing certain widescreen DVDs and HDTV broadcasts?
Your widescreen TV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (1.78:1), which is the aspect ratio of HDTV. However, movies are filmed at several different aspect ratios, including 2.35:1. Also referred to as "scope", 2.35:1 is a very panoramic aspect ratio that provides a wide field of view in the theater. Scope is much wider than your widescreen TV, so it still requires the use of letterboxing ("black bars") to fit the entire image on screen. Some TVs and DVD players have a zoom function that allows you to blow up the image so it fills the screen, but the sides of the image must be cropped in order to do so.

6. What will 4:3 broadcasts and DVDs look like on a widescreen TV?
There are multiple settings for adjusting the appearance of 4:3 material on Panasonic widescreen TVs. It can be viewed with black bars on the sides, preserving the way it was originally intended to be viewed. Some viewers find the black bars distracting, so they might prefer one of the stretch modes that lets you fill the entire TV screen with the image. One such mode is the JUST (justify) mode, which stretches only the outer portion of the picture while leaving the center untouched.

Hope that helps, good luck

ALSO:
I searched a Magnavox manual for the lock feature here is what I found...
The following functions are disabled during SDM (and enabled after leaving SDM):
· Parental lock
· Blue mute
· Hospitality Mode
· No-ident Timer (normally the set is automatically switched off when no video signal (IDENT) is received for
15 minutes).
All other controls operate normally.
Entering Service Default Mode
To enter the Service Default Mode, press the following key sequence on the remote control transmitter:
0-6-2-5-9-6-MENU
Do not allow the display to time out between entries while keying the sequence.
Upon entry into the Service Default Mode, the letters “SDM” will be displayed at the upper right corner of the screen.

ALSO:
- Line 7 : “CHANNEL BLOCKED”
Indicates that all channels are locked except the selected channel.
The following complaints may be generated due to locked channels:
- TV cannot be switched on from standby with the local keyboard buttons.
- “CH+” and “CH-“ buttons on local keyboard do not function.
To disable the LOCK feature:
Select ”FEATURE” menu (with the Remote Control).
Select “LOCK” (with the Remote Control).
Set to “OFF”

This set is over the age where expensive repairs are recommended. See late issues of Consumer Reports that deal with these matters; the October issue in particular.

Therefore, I suggest you try a couple of freebies and if they do not help, then think of a replacment tv instead.

ONE: Do a hard reset. Merely unplug the power cord for 4 hours, then retry.

TWO: Do the vibration/whacking test for loose connections and cold solder joints. Smack it with your hand or fist a few time all around the cabinet to see if the vibrations will reawaken the bad/loose connections internally.

THREE: Go into the service mode and see if there are any error reports that will give a clue to its strange behavior. You can enter the service mode by referring to this site: http://www.fixyourowntv.com/servicemenu.php

MITSUBISHI WS55809 Blue Screen


I'm not clear on this. When does it show a blue screen? When you have it in HDTV mode? A Blue Screen means it's not getting a signal (or the signal is very weak, resulting in more static than picture). If it is a blue screen for HDTV, how are you sure the HDTV receiver is working? If you can answer those questions for me, I should be able to track down the problem. I'm not sure which direction to go yet.
