I can no longer use my IQB64W10W to watch any high-def programming. Unless the camera isn't moving, the image washes out and gets very dark, like the contrast can't keep up. Regular low-def stuff and DVD's still look OK, but this TV wants high-def and nothing else, lets face it. Also, when any channel banner comes up, it is shifted left about 2" from where it should normally be. I had a qualified repair place look at it over a year ago, at the time they could get the module to fix it but it was outrageously expensive. I checked about 6 months ago and now they say Zenith isn't making repair parts for this TV anymore. I've got to have my high-def fix again, I just hate dropping thousands on a new set when I remember just how good this thing once was. Has anyone ever had this problem, and if so, what exact module fixed it...the digital module?

Re: IQB64W10W high-def problem
Your problem sounds like the digital board and probably was what the repair people said. I would suggest telling them about Tri-State Module, Inc in Evansville, IN. 800.203.7484. They have a good selection of modules for about any set and most are under $150.00 with the average being $100. They rebuild boards and all boards carry a 12 month warranty. You can also access them at www.tristatemodule.com. If they can't help try PTS in Bloomington Indiana. I use them for alot of replacement modules. Same deal as tristate. www.ptscorp.com

Its so high pitched that some people can barely hear it, but I guess I have sensitive hearing. ... Anyway, this seems to be a fairly common issue and it is caused by either the ... You're probably hearing a transformer humming.
Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;
If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.
Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.
Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.
Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.
Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.
If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.
You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.
Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.
Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.
Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....
Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.
well you would need to hook up cable box to dvd recorder. the only draw back first off is one you cannot get hd onto a dvd. you can down scale and it will seem a little cleaner than standard def but of coarse it will never be high def. I'm not to familiar with the motorola boxes but if they offer dvr's in your area i would suggestgetting one you can record all channels then afterwards transfer them to a outside device. but as i said before high def cannot fit onto a dvd unless you plan to copy one movie to 6-7 disc. Just keep in mind a standard high def channelcan only fit 2 max on one freq due to the amount of data transfer as opposed to 10 to 12 standard def digital channels
Only If you Play high def or blue ray disks on the player///regular disks will look even better then before but not quite as good as a high def or blue-ray disk!
I hope this fixes ya up!
