We subscribe to setanta,on an as and when basis to watch football matches. For the second time, with our new plasma tv the reception - movement is slow motion . Speech is normal. This never happened previously on our old tv set with a separate freeview box. All other channels, reception ok. Please advise, thankyou

SOURCE: rolling picture

Try the free view and see if the box is bad, then if it still does the sane thing, I bet theres a bad connection on the driver IC board, on a connecting ribbon cable, or a bad drive ic. These are things that a user should not attempt to repai, as there are no user replaceable parts inside this set and should be serviced by a train tech. Good Luck

SOURCE: lost half of picture

This can be on the matrix drive board, or the display assembly itself. It is possible to also have a defect in the address decoding area that will cause this.

The procedure is to swap out the suspect boards to determine where the fault is, leave the working boards in the set, and then follow up any necessary calibrations that are necessary.

Do a first time installation, move the TV or bite the bullet and either buy an external aerial or extend the main house aerial cable to reach the TV. assuming your TV has no signal where it is now

SOURCE: I have a LG plasma T.V., model 42PB4D. Black box/middle of screen

Try this:

In the menu go to CC and set the TV to CC1 as this is a text box appearing for captions. Hope this works!

It has power but no sound and no picture. TV turns on and power button flashes about 12 times and then stays blue.

Hi Dustin,
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Plasma banding

It's a problem with your TV panel or possibly main board, it might get worse over time. If it's new, return it, if it's used then there isn't much you can do. A new TV would probably be cheaper than repairing it

LG 55LV5500 video problem. VERY slow response time - looks like the tv is in slow motion w/ the images trailing behind.

The main digital processor board should be suspected. Contact any experienced service technician.

Just bought a LG 47LE5400 TV. Connected my WII to it and, though it owrks, the TV response is slow. The image lags the actions of the WII remote by a fractional second. This makes playing WII very...

Crt's have an extremely fast redponse rate, bt design. Most have a refresh rate somewhere around 4 or 5 ms. whereas yours states as having a response time of 2.6, in actuality has a rate of more than 8 ms. This makes video games look and act like they are in a time warp. Alot of flat screen tv's have this same condition, and unfortunately, there really isn't any way to make it better. I'm sorry to tel you this, but you wanted to know what was the deal, and that's what it is.

Watching a football game picture is very unclear

The noise reduction option will cause a blur on fast movement. Also, you probably already know this, but a standard definition broadcast will look very blurry on an HD TV, so make sure the channel you're watching is actually an HD channel.

Oh, wow, I just noticed that this is from October. Oh well, maybe you're still having problems.

Its the timing of the TV ( the refresh rate) How well the TV main processor is able to keep up with the action of the game and reproduce it. Next time your at a consumer electonics shop (or even better Best Buy) look at the different tvs. and ask about a TV's refresh rate and u can see a difference.
