More than likely the two are on the same circuit. Throe the breaker that runs the refridgerator and see if it also controls the TV as well. If it does try other receptacles to see if they have power to them now. If you find one that does you can plug the tv into that receptacle and throw the breaker back on to see if that soves the issue. I expect that it will. I have my fridge next to my tv seprated by about three feet and donot have any interference at all due to the difference in circuits. You may also want to check your grounds on the refridgerator itself and at the receptacle as well as this can also solve some inteference issues. Hope this solves your problem and thanks for using Fix Ya.

My t.v has 3 picture split evenly down the middle ..can u help what do i do to get it off


TV needs servicing CERTIFIED TV EXPERT HERE, follow this information I provided 3 long solutions to this issue/s Solution 1 Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The first link below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error. Additional information http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide Failed TV and Monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Parts: www.shopjimmy.com 2 Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc. Please respond if we have found a solution. 3 When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me

Internal interference


ok you can used the matching transformer to avoid the interference. or you can buy a 'interference free'at the electronics stores!

Yes, most likely the sensor is at fault - more precisely it's connections to the motherboard are iffy. You must take the back cover off the tv and reseat them. While you are there check their soldering points - with age they tend to melt and get loose.

This could be due to some electrical interference. Make sure you are using a grounded (3-pin) power plug, and that the outlet is properly wired. For that take the TV to a another location and see if the problem goes away.
Make sure you don't have fluorescent light fixtures nearby--they can interfere with the picture, if the bulbs or ballast is defective.

Old tv plays dvds but when cable box is on or off image scrolls vertically on the screen. wondering if this is an issue that can be fixed or is symptomatic of a 15 yr old tv. thanks.


I'm not sure what you mean by "cable box is on or off". Do you mean connected? If the cable box is connected to the TV through a 300-ohm antenna input, you are probably getting a lot of interference from the workings of the cable box. Try moving the cable box away from the TV.
If the TV is connected to the cable box with a 75-ohm cable, it may not be properly grounded - try another cable.
Also try manually tuning the channel on which the cable signal comes in, usually 3 or 4. Try an alternate channel.

If the DVD player is built into the set, the signal is less subject to outside interference. If the DVD player connects to RCA jacks on the set, it is also less subject to interference.
Vertical hold problems can be caused by aging capacitors in the "sweep" circuits but usually one sees that as loss of vertical hold on the DVD signal, as well.
Good luck.

Cable Tv Interference


Sounds like the cable signal getting to that TV is just not strong enough.  This could be due to the number of connection and splitters leading to it.  Set it up with a coaxial cable that connects as close to the incoming cable as possible and not split it along the way.

I have a philips magnavox tv with the original remote. closed caption constantly (writing script)comes on tv screen, even though the remote has a cc button,i press it until cc off comes on, the cc goes off...


You're not doing anything wrong. Your TV is somehow turning the cc on "all by itself". Some bit is getting flipped inside the TV, turning the cc on.

either that or there is some sort of rf or ir interference near the TV that is mimicking the CC button on the remote.

Have you pressed the cc button on the remote, verified the cc is "off" on the TV and then removed the batteries from the remote for a while to make sure there isn't something hinky with the remote???

I have a panasonic DLP rear projection t.v. There are bright colored spots on the screen. the screen has ghostimages and vertical lines.


Ghosting is usually caused by RF interference.

I would troubleshoot the video source rather than the projection TV.

The first thing to check with interference is the tightness of all connections. If your signal is transmitted via a coaxial cable, (which I'll assume because ghosting is common with coax) use a wrench to thread each connector tighter. Not too tight, of course, just a little more than what you could do with your fingers. Check the image.

If ghosting still apears, check the connectors themselves. At any point can you easily pull the cable out of a connector? Does the cable look like a good quality cable? If the cable itself is thinner than a standard pencil, the answer is no. A lot of manufacturers turn out crappy thin coax cables that cause many, many problems.

If you're pretty certain the interference is not attributed to bad wiring, consider the environment where you watch the TV. Are there devices within range that might cause RF interference? A CB radio? cordless phone? cordless microphone? microwave oven? wireless router? If so, these devices might be resonating with the video signal, causing the unwanted equivalent of a delay in an audio signal. Try unplugging these devices one at a time and observe what difference, if any, they make on your reception.

Report back if these tips are not fixing your problem.

Horizontal lines in picture


That's almost always due to RF interference from an electric motor. It doesn't even have to be close to your TV, just operating on the same circuit or near a poorly insulated wire, which acts as an antenna, injecting 60Hz (and harmonic) noise into the power supply.

If it's right next to the TV it will be even more pronouced because the RF interference resonates into the TV circuitry itself, not just the power supply to the TV.

Typically a high current AC motor like a vacuum cleaner, refrigerator, dehumidifier, air conditioner, furnace, etc.
