Gaming systems I was told when I bought my big screen about 6 years ago that I should not play any game systems on it because it would hurt the picture. I purchased a wii and am wondering how true was this recommendation?

Playing Games on HDMI on projetion TV.


Dear aaashleee_x3,
No, it won't hurt your TV. The new games will shut down after a short period of time in the pause mode and the games are fast moving, not like tho old Pac Man games.

Thanks for using FixYa and Merry Christmas, big IRISH.

Will ps3 hurt philips projection hdtv


Everyone is right. The manuals for both projection TVs and video games specifically warn against playing video games on these sets. The result can be "pattern burn" from parts of the image that stay in one place for extended times. Once the face of a tube is burned by a bright image, it's visible all the time. If you intend to watch this TV, don't play games on it!

Card reader replacement


I suspect that it won't play any source that uses progressive scanning. The likely problem is the hyperboard or scaler board. This component allows the TV to switch from sandard definition TV to HD. Typically, the hyperboard will cause shaking and wiggly images especialy noticeable at the top of the screen. It will generally work better the longer its on. Expect to spend $400-500 to resolve this.

All screen is red


IF THE SCREEN IS ALL RED WITH VIDEO VISIBLE AND RETRACE LINES. ADJUST SCREEN CONTROL IN THE FRONT FOR THE RED TUBE ONLY. TURN CONTROL COUNTER CLOCKWISE. IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THE TUBE CAN BE REJUVINATED.

Gaming on a Mitsubishi WS-55511


MetCom, you can use a video game on any rear projection big screen, heres the issue you DO have to be aware of, if you PAUSE the video game for prolonged periods of time it will PERMANENTLY damage all 3 picture tubes in the tv, so heres the trick, when you need to pause the game for more than 2-3 minutes just shut the tv OFF, you`ll never hurt the tubes this way because they aren`t on, when you come back to the game turn on your tv, un-pause the game and "life is good", been doing it for years and I`m a tv tech so trust me and now you know the real answer, pass it on to others and enjoy, BMW Rider

The Hitachi 50UX57B is a 50 inch standard projection TV with a standard screen. It is not HD ready. If you need it, I think I can download the owner's manual (in PDF format) from Hitachi and foward it to you.
