Look in the menu for an image adjustment option. This is used to center or adjust the given image. Try a different type of connectiong from the cable box to your TV. ie; if you are connected by component connection, try AV or HDMI to test. If that doesn't work, look at the cable box settings (call your cable company for instructions) or have the box replaced if defective.

This is common for PC connections but not for cable.

Hi,
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
If your TV, flatscreen, or monitor is more than 5 years old it is more like to have suffered a component failure.
Take it to a repair shop.

Your old TV was most likely a SD (Standard Definition) TV. SD signals look better on SD TV sets than they do on HD TV sets. This is normal. If you will, imagine having a tiny wallet photo reprinted as an 8"x10" photo. The image would be grainy and not have the crispness of the original. This is the same principle. Your SD source is being blown up to fill an HD screen. Once you add HD to your programming, the old TV will be forgotten. I hope this was helpful.

Proview 3200 Flatscreen with HDMI Problem


Maybe the input on the tv needs to be adjusted to work with the cable tv for example in the tv menu where you can adjust the sources for the inputs maybe it is set to something like RGB instead of HDMI. If you have a user manual consult it on how to change the input devices. Good luck.

Black end "stripes" on non-HD images on LN-2341W


Arte you using a cable provider? if so you should be able to adjust it to a wide screen or stretch, most cable providers are supposed to apply the settings when installing the box, so that the screen will auto fit your set, otherwise you will get image retention
