This TV won't support 1080!

I have been dealing with Time Warner Cable and my cable box and this TV. It seems that the 1080i will show up for a monent or while and then the tv just goes blank. Several techs and boxes have been brought out and nothing has worked. I called Hyundai and they told me there could not be a problem with the tv it is the cable co's issue with signals. Well all has been looked at and still today they came out booted it all back up and put on 1080i. It will run a little while and then go blank. It worked fine on 1080i for months. I got the cable upgrade in October 2006 and the problem started ~ March 2007. It works on 480i. Also, along with this is anmother problem that the picture will freeze at times and I have to turn the tv on and off to get it back up. Thanks you for helping me out!

Re: This TV won't support 1080!

It is a problem from Time Warner. They told me that it was my cost to replace the 35 year old cables outside of my house. I told them wrong..I am going to Direct TV. But, what do I do with the test box the cable guy left at my house???? Although they "kiled it", it still is a test box and worth $$$

Re: This TV won't support 1080!

I have this same TV, and cable from Comcast (which uses the same Motorola Box as Time Warner). Are you using component output from you CATV box, or HDMI to DVI. Your TV has two component inputs and one DVI input, but no HDMI input directly. If you use component, you must do two things. 1. The TV is auto-sensing as to the input signal, and will work with 1080i, 720p, 480p or 480i. Make sure you have a good grade component cable. 2. On your CATV box, turn the power off with the remote, then within 3 seconds press 'MENU'. This will give you a screen where you can specify the output from your CATV. I suggest 1080i, but 720p works fine, too. If you are using the DVI input, then you must be using an HDMI to DVI converter cable or adapter. To make this work -- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT -- you must set the CATV box to HDMI output, not DVI. Use the same process as described above, but make sure your HDMI/DVI cable is connected, and you have selected the DVI input on the TV. Otherwise, you won't get the proper menu on the CATV box. BTW, the prior suggestion is not the problem -- low signal from the cable company would cause the picture to pixelate, but not lose sync. However, both problems COULD be caused by a defective CATV box. If they haven't already replaced the CATV box, tell them to do so immediately or you will call DIRECTV!!

Low or poor signal from the cable company. Try another signal source such as a DVD play.

I cannot get a picture to show up. It will show the word VIDEO 1, 2 ... and the TV's menu's but no tv program. We have tried switching time warner cable box but that didn't work either.

The main board would be suspect since its not processing any signal input from any of the inputs. Try they should have a replacement board available.

I have a Sharp Aquos 52" LC-52LE810UN. I turned the tv on and assuming that my cablevision box is working, what do I do in settings or other aspect of the tv to make the 1080i work. I have another box...

Actually the cablevision box determines the 1080i. Once it is set on that box the television simply displays it. The cablevision box will have to be connected to the television with component cables or one hdmi cable in order for you to be able to choose 1080i on it. Usually there are resolution numbers on the side of the cable box that tell you if it's on 480, 720, or 1080. There is a red light next to the one the cable box is displaying. If this is not the right kind of cable box for that then you will need to get another one from Cablevision or just eliminate the box entirely and run the cable straight to the television. Yes you can do that and use the television's digital tuner for a beautiful, crisp picture. After removing the cable box and screwing the coax cable onto the back of the television you will have to press the input button and scroll up to TV and press enter (use a Sharp remote). Then press menu and scoll over to setup and down to CH setup. Then scroll to CH search and begin searching for the available channels. You will now use a Sharp remote to change channels.

My tv only shows 720p and i am not sure how to adjust it to 1080p ={

You have to adjust the settings on whatever is connected to your television. If you have a bluray player connected to your television with an hdmi cable you should be able to receive 1080p but you have to set the bluray player to 1080i. The tv picks up the signal automatically. From your cable box or satellite tv box you cannot get any more than 1080i from television programs at this time. You can get 1080p from bluray on demand. In certain circumstances you can get 1080p over component cables as well as an hdmi cable but in most cases you will only get 1080i. Once again you have to set your connected device to 1080 to get it on your tv

Not seeing a HD pic with an HD cable box. setting

You won't see an HD program unless the actual show is being broadcast in HD. All of the channels are up in the 500's where I live and say "HD" in front of the stations regular initials (Time Warner). Be advised there are only about 15 of them altogether. Very disappointing. I too was disappointed with the low quality of some of the broadcasts, especially if they are old movies etc. I can actual see the digital squares. That's a sign of a poor signal. Along with the mouth movements are not in sync with the voice. Thank the US government for digital.

Picture shifts to left

I had the offset left issue for non-HD channels with my Panasonic 42" plasma, using Comcast HD cable box. Went into the configuration menu (to get there with the newer Comcast boxes, you have to turn the box off, then hit the menu button on the box immediately after). You will see on the menu a resolution (probably says 1080i), then below it a "4:3 override". Our said 480i. When I changed it to "none", so that it stayed 1080i, it worked! It also works by selecting 480p, but then the picture is stretched.

This model supports the following formats: 1080i, 720p, 720i, 480p, 480i. Most likely it isn't the TV that is not allowing the 1080i resolution but rather your cabling or the inputs that you are using.
Be sure that that you have an HD signal coming into the TV. You may have to upgrade your cable subscription or if you already have the channels sometimes you have to tell your cable box to use 1080. The same goes for DVD players; they often default to only 480 to maximize compatibility.
The other area to check is your cabling. For the best results use HDMI or Component video.

If you have already checked both of these options let me know & I'll try to come up with some other options for you.
