Re: the picture has a double image.

All conections to the set need to be check very carefully starting form the cable to comes into the cable box from the outside and the cable that goes from the box to the tv,eliminate the cable box and conect the wire from outside direct in the tv and and see how it looks bring a small portable and conect the cable to it to see how it looks,once all the possibilities have eliminated then consider a problem inside the tv in the tuner area starting at the very conector where the cable conects.All this can help if the double image is not related to misaligned convergence.

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.

Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a DX-L26-10A that has problem with the A/V inputs. The picture is fuzzy. All the other inputs on the TV have a good picture. Both A/V1 and A/V2 are fuzzy.

AV1 and AV2 are Composite signals. What this means is that the Image signal and the Image color are combined into a single feed... or a composite or signal and color. Other than using CH3 from the cable box, this is the poorest performer in regards to signal quality. Additionally, the signal only has 480 lines of resolution and your TV has 720.

What all this means is that 480 lines of poor image quality are being blown up (think magnified) to fill 720 lines of resolution on the screen. What you end up with is a blurry image when compared to other inputs (ie: HDMI, COMPOSITE). The Dynex TV does not have some of the more advanced video processing of other manufactures. It will perform the image doubling, a bit of filtering, but not much more.

I suspect you TV is fine. A transition to an HD display can be shocking to some. After all, the VCR looked better on the old analog TV (not a joke, it did).

I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Picture on Samsung lcd LNT5271F is blurred sometimes lines color distortion double images then goes away and will come back. Part of the screen will go completely lines then come back. Starting to happen...

Had this exact problem diagnosed by a local repair shop as a bad LCD panel. According to the technician there's a loose ribbon cable on the panel and it would cost as much to replace/repair as a new TV.

Tv suddenly shows no audio and no video for digital channles only yet all digital channles are detected durring the channel search

Sounds like you have a bad signal from the antenna or the cable. Unlike analog TV if the signal level drops below a certain level you loose the picture and sound completely. The fact that digital channels are detected during channel search does not mean they have a good signal. Try moving the antenna about.

Picture quality

Are you viewing HD or standard definition.

Generally, LCD tvs don't do well with "standard" signals, since they're designed for HD.

You may get a slightly better picture by replacing the cable that connects from your TV to cable box, and cable box to wall. However, if you're not watching HD, it's unlikely that you'll notice the better cable making a big difference.

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)

  1. Check the cables and connections: Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
  2. Check the  display issue with  a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal. For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV , switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away. If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and . If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Try to Reset the TV ( LCD) quality options. Please look in to User Guide to make the TV to factory Defaults..
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV . If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

I hope that this should resolve the issue. However, if the issue still persists then please contact LCD manufacturer for further more on the issue.
