Pixalization 4 yr old Toshiba 30HFX84. New problem with cable and DVD signal. Giant pixals (1" wide X 1/8") Acute on startup, then fading to slight with tube warm. Not present in menu interface or subtitles. Does this sound familiar? Bracing for the worst.

Re: pixalization

Is the TV connected to both the DVD and the Cable box via component inputs? I gather the cable box is a HD box? If they both show up through component try connecting them to the composite video inputs (yellow connections) and see if the problem still shows up.

Can I connect my PC to my Toshiba 30HFX84 30

You can't connect the PC to the 30HFX84 directly. (The HDMI ports are not compatible with a computer's signal.)

If you use a converter box (VGA to component video), you would be able to get the connection. See this site for some examples: . Avoid the VGA to component video cables; those are for connecting to a projector that reads RGB signals at the component in.

Some video cards have a TV out option. In that case, you wouldn't need the converter. You might need the appropriate dongle to fit the video card TV-out and then connect the cable to the TV.

Crutchfield has the manual for the 30HFX84 available here: .

I hope this helps.

I have a 27" RCA TruFlat TV. Recently the picture

Something has definitely gone wrong. When picture fails, generally the audio will still play; but since the set is shutting down completely after a short time - it is going to more involved.

Firstly, anything can be fixed. The questions to ask are: 1) At what point do you stop spending money to repair a device that is XX years old? 2) How much would a replacement / upgrade cost?

Given that your set is an older SD (standard definition) with an old analog NTSC legacy tuner, it may be worth while to make the move to a digital HDTV. The picture quality will "blow away" any SD version of the same image / program that your old TV displayed. Unlike several years ago, the HDTV has come way down in price, too. A 32 inch, wide screen HDTV price starts at just $235 as results shown by a search in Google. In order to view HD signals, you'll need either 1) a plain UHF/VHF antenna (and local broadcasters in range), 2) HD cable TV service or, 3) HD satellite service. Cable and satellite providers offer SD service and for slightly more, HD service. Most people are not happy watching SD signals on an HD display - so you'll probably want to change the level of service if you're not using an antenna. Old DVD players only send SD signals, you might consider upgrading to a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Ray players provide SD and HD signals - depending on whether you insert an SD DVD or an HD Blu-Ray disk. The Blu-Ray players, like the HDTVs, have also dropped in price significantly.

See if you can find a place that provides free estimates. If not able to locate, find someone that will apply the cost of diagnostics (ask what the diagnostic fee is) to the total repair charge, and decide to either fix or replace.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thank you.

I have a 10 yr old Sony tv that is blurry

No, most likely scenario is that the cable company compressed the signal further so they can stuff more channels on the wire. The cable guy is caught in the middle of this. The poor guys will tell you anything to get you to turn your head, then they slip out the door. He can''t do anything and the company is looking at the big dollar. I don't think you will have much luck pushing back to them. I hope this helps.

Can not make the instalation betwen my tv and my dvd player

Most DVD players today have only RCA jacks for video and audio outputs, and don't have RF (channel 3 or 4) outputs. If your TV doesn't have AV input jacks (either too old or just not supplied on your model) you can't connect the DVD player directly. You'll need to get an RF converter to make the connection.

An RF converter costs about $15 and you'll find them where you can buy TVs. The converter takes the video and audio signals from the DVD player and creates a channel 3 or 4 output signal to your TV. If you don't have the cables already, make sure to get them too. You need a "dubbing cable" (RCA plugs on the ends, usually color-coded red, white and yellow) to connect the DVD player to the converter input jacks and an RF cable with "F connectors" on the ends for the output to the TV. Often the dubbing cable comes with a new DVD player, and the RF cable with the RF converter.

If this takes care of your connection troubles, please take a moment to give my solution a good rating. If I've missed something and can be of more help, please post a followup comment.

HDMI Input Failed

I've been seeing alot of this out in the field. The cable is thick and heavy, after awhile the HDMI connectiion inside the set comes apart and breaks from the main board. In my opinion the only difference between Component jacks and HDMI inputs is the thought of reducing the amount of wire mass in the back of the unit. It's more pleasing to the eye. If it's under any kind of warranty, call a servicer. The main PCB will need to be replaced. If it's not under warranty, use component input cables, you'll get the same performance from your set and save a few bucks.
