Can you describe the "distortion" that you refer to? Also, were there any changes to the laptop when this occurred or did this just suddenly appear?

Thanks,
Dan

I cant get it to work on full screen


I am having this same problem as this one above (62HM95). The issue I'm having is that it will also not work full screen. I selected the 'Split' option on the remote and the picture on the left is fine... absolutely clean and perfect, with audio. The picture on the right is completely distorted in very strange colors (mostly constant variations of purple), with audio as well. You should note, that the same video information was feed into different imputes to select for the split. In other words, I feed the cable stream into the TV using the component video (Y B R) as well as the coaxial cable and selected both options for the purposes of displaying the same information side-by-side. On screen I selected video option four (4 for color stream HD) and option (0 for cable/antenna). If I highlight either side and select one of them (4 or 0) the screen goes full screen and I see nothing but one solid color of purple. I've researched the purple and they call it 'Electric Purple'. That is all I see... just the solid purple, with the audio. What I have also noticed is that, If toggle between imputes while in the full screen option and come back to either option (4 or 0) the image plays/appears OK for about 2 seconds then goes back to solid purple. I just can't understand why this is happening especially when the on-screen menu displays perfectly fine. I cannot enjoy this TV by only watching half of it in split mode. Besides the multiple replacement bulbs I've had to buy I've completely had it with this TV

I want to connect my computer to the pioneer sd-643hd5 tv so I can view movies, pictures etc; The tv only has pin connections, cable connection, s-video connection, and a RGB port for HDTV broadcasting....


depending on the connections available on your pc, you can get a vga to rgb cable fairly cheap but I am not sure on how good the quality will be, same with the s-video connection. vga connections on the pc are usually blue in colour, if you have dvi connection you can get a similar cable to do the job. Most computers will auto sense the tv if you connect the cables with the pc switched off, make sure you are on the right channel on the tv and the switch on the pc.

hope this helps

Componants in back don't seem to work, HD cable,


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Connect Macbook Pro to Component input


you should be able to use an SVGA to component rca connector on any component input - i have a wd-65513, and thats how I have my pc hooked up to it. I could also never get a clear picture using the SVGA plug on the back of the set.

Plaid Screen


The problem is likely with your seine board or another video board. It will have distorted video/colors and you will see copies of the image in random sizes/places around the screen. If the toshiba menu is distorted it is in later stages of video, if not then earlier. More info will narrow down exacly which board. You can try reseating the LVDS cable, the computer looking one in the middle of the tv. It goes from the video board to the light engine. Unplug the tv and take off the back. The cable is usually white and has a D-type computer like connector with buttons or screws to unlock.

When I plug in VGA there is a green mask or Hue, over the whole screen... I tried changing the settings but its not controllable with colour settings


I would try a different VGA cable, if you are using a VGA to component cable (VGA on one side and red, blue and green on the other end) you can just have the cables mixed up, make sure red is with red and so on

Black/Green Distortion - Picture Quality - Wharfedale


This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.

Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal


Check your vga cable. Some cables have only 14 pins, some have all 15. The missing pin is pin 9, in the 15 pin cable it carries 5v from the graphics card to the screen. Without that 5v signal most LCD and Plasma television screens won't recognise a PC input. I had the same problem and only managed to fix it when my girlfriend swapped a cable over for me and as she did so glanced inside and said "it's got a bit missing" The cable that came with your PC most likely only has 14 ins as that is all a monitor screen needs.
You can buy a 15 pin cable at most PC or electronic shops, just check that isdoes have all 15 pins befiore you buy it. The cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones unless you are buying 20 foot cable. For 6 foot cable the cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones.

53" rca rear projection tv


Check the following:
1. Make sure it is plugged in a socket that is not on the same circuit that uses radio waves (like a microwave, cordless phone, etc)

2. If you have cable, make sure that you cable is connected properly and that the connections are tight. Make sure that the cable is in good shape.

3. Check any other type of antenna (if not using cable) make sure all connections are secure.

4. If you live in an apartment or townhouse someone might be using a device that causes your signal to be distorted.

Let me know if any of these work.
