Your HD if you have it. TV should have a HDMI plug-in. Or on your color plug-ins. If there not red, green and blue you do not have HD ready tv

My tv is about 10 years old. 4 days ago we had HD fios installed on our tv. 3 seconds in to watching a HD channel my picture went bad. I am wondering if it was verizons equi that caused this OR if it was...


No the fact that he didnt ask how old really isnt relevant. What happened when you said it went bad? I actually would be like your husband if it was working fine and he hooked it up and it fried it when he was there, I would also push for them to pay for repairs. Installers are not always the brightest guys in the world. I worked 13 years in electronics and cant tell you how many times I was in someones house to fix(not actual damage) things they hooked up wrong. Probably the truth is 10 years is a good run for a rear projection tv to go without needing something fixed.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.


Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Blue tint on bottom of screen


I have the same KDF60XS955 sony and have the same problem. I called sony customer support and was told there was a recall on the optical block for this tv. But the recall ended in Dec. of 2008. I was upset that they did not call or send out a notice to me. They should of had my information because I had a different issue that they sent someone out to fix a few years ago. They said it was an expensive fix, like over 1000 dollars. Instead of fixing it they offered me a deal on a smaller tv, a 52 inch sony. I could buy that one at a discount which is about 1100 dollars. I told them that I thought that was the worst deal I have ever heard of. Why would I spend about 4000 dollars for a tv 4 years ago only to be told that I could buy a smaller one today for 1100 dollars more. I said if I bought that 52 inch tv today, what would happen 4 years from today, am I going to be offered an even smaller one for more money again? I thought I was buying a top of the line tv back then, I only wished it would have lasted longer than this. Not happy!

HD ready?


If it is HD ready it will have HD component cable hookups. They are the red, blue, and green color coded hook up. You may also have RGB hookups which will look like a usb port. If you have any of these hook ups located on the TV then it is HD ready. If not then you were told false information. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I need a converter box for my 9 year old 50" Hitachi


If your TV has component inputs, then any HDTV reciever box or cablebox will likely get you to HD. Some tvs with component will still not handle HD, only 480 or SD. In very rare cases, your manufacturer may have a box to upgrade your TV to hd internally, however they are rare and expensive.

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.

Projection TV keeps shutting down


I just took my Mitsubishi WS-65315 65" in to be repaired for the same problem and was told that it needed a new main circuit board part number 930b899005 as was told they wanted to charge me $1100.00. So I told them not to do the repair and picked up my tv and found that same part at Sears parts for only $225.00. Some of these TV repair places are theifs.
