Acer AT3220 Blue flickering

My In-laws Acer has an odd problem, when connected to the sky + satilite system the picture suffers from random blue flickering. If I take the scart lead form the sky box, and run a DVD player on the same lead and same socket, perfect picture. Different scart sockets, same thing sky flickers, DVD fine.

I've tried a different satilite box, same problem, I've tried altering all the picture settings on the sky system and still the problem occurs. Using the RGB inputs for a PC also recreates the blue flickering, and ideas?

Do you have an S Video cable connection on the DVD player? I'd try that If you have one or component (red green blue) cable or even the composite (yellow) connection. The SCART connection on the input PCB of the tv could be damaged. The cost of this board may be pricey so if you can use the other type of connections with the DVD player I'd recommend that or get a DVD player that has one of those. Your model does not have HDMI so those are your only other options. Hope this helped

I have a LG Plasma model 42pg20, it was working fine but I moved homes. when I plugged it in the blue light flickered off& on, now blue light is on but no picture or sound.


Try doing a full setup and auto channel search because you may be on a different cable provider system in the new location.

Rca 42in full hd lcd picture flickers


If the picture on your TV flickers, there may be a simple fix. Here are some possible answers and suggested solutions:

1. Your set-top box may need a simple reboot. Unplug the power connection to the set-top box for about 30 seconds. Reconnect the power and turn the set-top box back on.

2. Check all of your cables for a loose connection by tightening each one with your fingers.Flickers can sometimes be caused by bends in rigid cables, too.

3. If your picture flickers to a black or blue screen, you could have a bad set-top box. Contact your cable or satellite service provider about installing a new one.

4. If you still have audio, the flickering could also mean that you have a failing backlight.

For additional troubleshooting information, check out the chart at TV flickering for more solutions. I hope this helps!

Picture comes on but it flickers alot


check the simple things first: does it do it when using a DVD player or Blue Ray hooked to one of the rear audio/video inputs?

SKY DIGIBOX 2nd RF frequency


your in luck, I work for sky as an Engineer.

Firstly go to the main telly where your sky box is.

Using the sky remote press the following buttons.
SERVICES
4
0,1,SELECT
go to RF
In this menu I would set the RF channel to 38 and turn the power ON and then down to save.

now leave it on the blue menu screen (sky menu)

go to the other room where you link from your sky box is connected to.
press the tv button on that remote and then select channel 6 on the remote

Then go into the menu for the tv and then to setup. go to MANUAL TUNE/SEARCH with most new tv you can scroll down to were it says C _ _ you can then input your channel number as 38 the same as you setup on your sky box.

Dont forget to save the settings and that should be you. You should be able to see the sky menu on the telly with the link on. (that is why I asked you to leave the sky menu on that way you know you havent just tuned it into your normal terrestrial channels.

The reason I told you to turn the power onto the link was so that you can purchase a Magic eye. This will allow you to turn your sky box over from the 2nd room without having to keeping going to the main tv to change over.

here is a link to a random site with a picture of a magic eye on. you can purchase these from many places or even Ebay. here is the link anyway.

hope this sort you out. If so please leave a thumbs up

Green hue on all inputs


Most likely there is a failure in the video processing. The flickering was from the failing components breaking down.

Your set can be serviced by an experienced tech who has spare boards and the facilities to service your set.

Sound but No Picture


Connect your outdoor antenna directly to your antenna in, in your TV see if it works and do the same with your cable input if it works then the A/B box is at fault.

I had the same problem. It's caused by the picture setting on your Sky box. Go ibto Services, select Picture Settings and set the mode to PAL not RGB.
