On any High Def TV, the reciever you need for this set, which does not have a HD receiver in it, is half the equation. Most HD channels have some HD content mixed with SD content on the same channel. SD content on HD signal from cable or satellite tends to be slightly blocky due to the native signal resolution and the resolution of HD (1080i/p or 720i/p).

5 flashes is IK or current to cathode. check the IC's on the crt boards, check the focus block, check the vertcal deflection IC since the IK pulses come from the verticl cicuit.

that is for adjusting the colors center , you should not use this unless the colors seem off center and then you may make it worse if you do not know what you are doing , this is really for a tech to do adjustments

The HD reciever shouldn't be the problem.

If you recieve an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image will be displayed at that ratio on your HDTV unless you specify otherwise. To do so go to your TV's Setup screen

setup
Choose picture formats
select smooth wide as your default

***Some digital (ATSC format) stations may transmit 4:3 images in a way that will not allow expansion. You will be unable to adjust the picture format.

Hope this helps!!!

I think it would likely work if you trimmed it evenly around the sides in order to maintain the central position. Focus may have to be adjusted but thats all.

Hi,

Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

Best regards.

I have a 50" hitachi rear projection tv, do i need


rozmyers,

You do not need a high def receiver, your unit has an ATSC tuner which is the same thing. You do need to hook it up to a high definition signal. You mentioned that you have satellite. Call your supplier and order the high definition channels if you do not already have them on the downlink. They should be able to tell you if you have them or not. They should also be able to tell you which channels they are (normally the higher ones). Once you have a high definition feed you will have the best picture you are going to get with todays technology.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial.

Its like the tuner is not working


PROBABLY A BAD "HYPERUNIT" FAILURE. IT IS THE DIGITAL SCAN CARD FOR THE TV IT IS WHAT MAKES IT HIGH DEFINITION. IT DOES ALL THE VIDEO AND AUDIO PROCESSING FOR THE TV TRY TO HOOKUP A HIGH DEF SOURCE MAYBE A GOOD DVD PLAYER OR HD CABLE BOX AND IT MAY LOOK BETTER FOR WHILE BUT WILL FAIL ALL TOGETHER SOONER OR LATER.

No picture - only sound


Ok, on a hi-def tv, you must have a converter box capable of receiving Hi-def. If you are using a converter box from a satalite or cable tv service, try getting a Hi-def box. Also try hooking a vcr or dvd player to the tv in the non high def ports to varify that this is the problem. If you have any question please let me know, I hope this helps, good luck.
