Re: Getting my tv crisp and fixing hdtv

Check to see if set appears to have a slight high voltage arc or corona discharge that is causing interference to other televisions. This arc is also causing problems in the video circuit which is why the tech and the customer are seeing it on the screen of this television. Tech needs to isolate the High voltage block, and CRT from possible suspect by one by one disconnecting them from the high voltage source. The only indicator the tech can use is another television and look for the interference to disappear, since the Sony will not allow the raster to appear if any one of the tubes is disconnected. After the test the it was determined the flyback was causing the problem. The radiated noise reduced but was did not disappear. It was recommended to replace the "G" board since the unit was covered under the SAYS program.. The G board corrected the symptom.

60PL9200D/37 TV picture problem

Sounds like one or both of your IC chips burnt out. You will need to replace them. A good place to purchase high quality IC chips is careful there are a lot of fakes out there that don't last and cost you more money in the long run.

Thin horizontal black lines

It looks like either failing convergence IC chips or a couple busted capacitors around them. This will need to be given for servicing.
You could try a hard reset first though: Unplug the TV from the power socket, remove all cabling, wait 5 minutes and replug to wall socket and redo cabling.

However, I think that you could have either convergence problems or a failing power board, for which you will need to get the set serviced.

Hope that helps!

I have a 56" DLP Samsung (HLR5668W) Right side goes solid black

The color wheels will never fix an issue like that. The only things that will cause that issue is a bad DMD board which is part of the light engine or the digital board which is not. Freak Squad need to replace the digital board.

HDTV is getting blue dots and the right side has turned blue

These issues are problems in the light engine (optics block)
the dots are called "starfield" and the geometric is "roadmap"
replacing the light engine will fix the issue. for awhile, sony was extending the warrany on the engine for these issues only, but that may have expired.

Picture is not crisp

Did you purchase new? Convergence may be off, try the menu and look for a convergence adjustment.

Picture quality

The output from your sat reciver is not HD unless it says right on it that it is . The signal your getting now is a digital signal from the dish to the reciver, but from the reciver to the TV set, it is analog. To answer short and sweet, Yes, you will need an HD reciver for the satallite to get the most out of your HD TV set. Good Luck Ps and please dont forget to rate this.

Vertical lines

The red line in the crt is the sreen voltage is to high or bad tube.
A simple fix is if you take off the front panel there will be a black box be careful it is high voltage make sure you are a pro.
there will be six controls look for the one marked screen and is for red tube adjust very slightly counter clockwise.until red
line gos away. If that does not fix it its the red tube.

I hope this helps doctor video
