Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV

2 Answers

Sony Trinitron TV that's about 14 years old

We have a local cable service and when I called about 1 channel that has a black box that takes up about 1/2 or less of the picture they said it was the picture in picture -- to refer to the manual on how to fix it -- our manual mentions nothing about picture in picture or how to fix it... Of course, this is one of our favorite channels to watch -- any suggestions? The manual lists on the front KV-13M10, KV-MT1300, KV-14R10, KV-1460R, K-20M10, K20S10, KV-MT2000, KV-ST2050, KV-21R10, KV-21RS10, KV-2180R, KV-2190RS. Not sure which one is our model...

On your sony tv (not cable) remote - hit the MENU button, then scroll right to SETUP on the screen - the first choice - caption vision - is probably set on a close caption or text - change it to off. i had the same problem - would pop up occasionally and only on certain screens. this fixed it. hope it works for you.

We have a LG42lx6500. when you turn it on after being off for a few hours the picture colour is distorted for a couple of minutes before correcting. At times you can see the individual pixels. Sometimes...


Hello

Make sure TV is on the correct channel or input. Check the cables for correct routing from TV to any other devices. Check cables to ensure they are tight and secure.

An analog signal converted to high defintion resolution will cause lines, blurriness or fuzziness in the picture. Change the resolution to a lower or native setting using the media device (cable box, DVD,). This may be an issue that requires a service call to cable provider.

A problem on one channel may just be a error on that channel. If using an antenna, it might need to be adjusted in order to ensure good signal strength. For digtal channels, go into TV Menu. Check the DTV signal. Weak signal can cause picture distortion.

If another device is being used such as a cable box, DVD player or VCR switch between devices and test picture. Check routing of cables that are used to control the image. This should be a series of red, white and yellow cables.

If a VCR with a cable box, make sure the VCR and TV are set to the correct channels for video signal to pass through. If problem is still occuring, try another set of cables. bad cables can cause picture distortion.

Bad cables can cause picture distortion as well. Try another set of cables. If picture is better than when using the cables replaced, this was the issue. If cables are not an issue TV may require service.

I have a leviton programable timer no.vpt24 Your instructions show two wires in the junction box. I only have one wire.I can join the black to black white to white but no wire to join with red wire


I think you are saying that you have 1 romex-cable entering box.
And that 1 cable has a black, white and bare ground wires.

Here's how to wire Leviton's vpt24 timer.
Timer has Red Black White and Green wires.
Connect White and Green wires to bare ground wire.
Connect Black-timer wire to black wire inside box
Connect Red-timer wire to white wire inside box.
Turn power ON, and try timer.
If timer does not work, then reverse Black-timer and Red-timer.

Here is photo of similar wiring using Intermatic timer

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Picture/audio problems on my HDTV


This is a cable box problem. Could be a lack of signal stregnth or bad HDMI output.

The SA boxes have a very bad history of this, try using the component video output and see if the problem persists.

The HDMI is a real glass jaw of those boxes; but this problem could absolutly be your incoming signal...high def channels require more signal strength and that is what causes audio drops, pixilation and flicker.

If it was the HDMI in the receiver/tv you would get:

- Black screen, Pink fuzz or green streak dropouts.
- "Fireflies"
- Audio cutting in and out
- Not pixilation!

So what is my approach? If the box is rented or under warranty get it replaced. If the problem persists then call your cable company and arrange a service call at their expense.

If the box is not under warrenty go ahead and call the cable company and complain about a poor signal. If the signal is good, use the component video output...it looks almost identical anyway.

Let me know if this helps,

Cheers!

Samsung TX-R3080WH, tv is less than 2 years old and the picture is too dark to see it. some channels, you can "make out" a picture, but for the most part, channels are black. but you can still hear it.


not sure about this model but it sounds like the backlight has gone out. You can call samsung at 1-800-samsung and they may be able to help or give you the # of the nearest service center.

Try to re-program your tuner (search for channels). There are a lot of changes going on with service providers.
I am a servicer, and I have had to reprogram many sets because the local cable company just recently switched there services from analog (NTSC) to digital (ATSC).
Your problem might possibly be an internal problem, but most likely related to the aforementioned.
Having said that, there's always a possibility that a problem exists with your service providerw
If the above, reprogramming channels, doesn't work, then call your local cable or sattelite service provider. If that doesn't work, next person to call is your repair tech. Especially if it is under warranty.

I purchased a SANYO-DP46848 42"HDTV. I have a Cable box and my cable provider (Time Warner Cable) provides free HD Channels. However.... I CANNOT PICKUP ANY HD CHANNELS ON THE NEW TV. WHY???...


I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.

LCDTV - Picture problem


Do the lines only appear on the Cable box input? It maybe be a problem with your cable. Try to isolate the problem.

Do you see the lines on all sources such as your DVD player as well? If you press the MENU button on the Sharp remote, do the lines go through the menu as well? If yes, it is most likely a TV problem.

A bunch of lines sounds like it is most likely a problem with the connection with the LVDS cable, if not that, then a defective main board.

There isn't really much you can do about it now.
Since the TV is less than a year old, I suggest calling Sharp to locate a local authorized service center.

Some channels have no color or sound


once a signal falls below a certain threshold the color will be lost.
some sets are more sensitive to this loss.
if you see static in the picture on any of the channels then the cable is leaking and needs replaced /tightened.
if a local air broadcast is leaking into a same cable channel on the cable you will get poor to no reception on that channel.
for example : he we have a local channel 7 on the air.
if i tune to cable 7 and see a weak or distorted pic then the cable is leaking and needs replaced.
