Use of screen switching when watching SKY HD movies

I have recently had sku HD installed, having had sky+ previously. My Hitachi tv (model 42PD9700U) has been able to switch viewing so the picture fills the full screen when watching movies. Now, when watching certain movies in HD the tv is set to full. This means I have a black bar above and below the TV. My manual says that the display size in AV4, HDMI1 & HDMI 2 is set to full when watching in 1080i or 720p. I have contacted sky and checked the settings there and they are set to picture viewing 16.9.

Any advice as I am thinking that to get the benefit of better picture quality you lose the benefit of widescreen viewin. Is this right.

Hello,
The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.
The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board. You might be lucky it's just a blow fuse. Also a defective transformer can cause your TV not to power on.
All these can be checked on the power supply board.
But more often bad capacitors causes problem on the power supply board. I do not think the power board needs replacement, rather those defective capacitors is causing this issue. Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.
The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)
You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.
What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).
You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.
Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.
If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.
I hope this helps.
Regards.

Hi.
Connect skybox using scartlead, or if you have HD use HDMI lead connection..
Select connection by using the AV (alternate video input) on your remote control--this will switch from freeview to sky.

I am running a Sky + HD box through my television Hitachi 26LD6600 using a HD lead. I have balanced the sky remote to the tv, but whenever we turn to Sky/digital tv we have to manually change the tv...


Hi, without a manual to hand, i don't know, but my Panasonic had the same problem, but I found somewhere in the settings, I could change it, it has something to do with AV and Digital TV and hdmi setup, give it a check.

I hope this helps to some degree, but give us a shout if you require more help.

I have recently bought a sky plus hd box and want to connect an external dvd recorder to it(Sony). Followed instructions but it will not pick up a signal from the hd box by the way I live on the costa del...


if you connect the dvd to the tv using scart socket 2 (av2) it should send a signal to the dvd, depending on the make/model of tv, you also may have to set the av2 output in the menu.
Alternativly, connect the sky to the dvd input and the dvd output to the tv, this should also work.May have to watch the tv with the dvd on set to av.

Problem when watching box office movies


There are two things that may be going wrong.

Sky box office are transmitted on different Transponders. I'll explain, each transponder has a different number.. each one has 10 channels or so on them.
this would explain why you can watch regular tv channels but have pixelating on box office.

your sky dish may need to be re-aligned or the LNB (bit on the end) may need changing

the other one is if your box is old then the tuners maybe on there way out. hense you losing certain blocks of channels.

Picture Switching through Sky HD


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Sky


You do not say which breed of sky you have.. old analogue, digital, sky + or sky HD if you have old analogue then you may have to connect through aerial connection, digital will have a scart socket to connect to your tv, sky + will have the same and finally the cream of the crop sky HD will have hdmi in addition to scarts.

The very least you need to do for a digital picture (not to be confused with hi-def which it isn't) is connect through scart lead then unless it auto-switches to scart input upon switching on sky use your tv remote to select the ext input 1, 2 or 3 etc (some remotes have a button called source for this some call it input etc) select each ext input until you find the one your sky is connected to
