Not true about the 200 hour thing, and the pic qualith can be a couple of things, if you have a cable box, it can be caused by a week signal, or a loose connection, if the cable is just going from the wall to the tv, you may want to reprogram the chanels

I have a Hitachi 55vs69 I replaced the bulb and it went out in 6mo. Is there something else that might be wrong.


The number of hours, coupled with the TV viewing conditions, is a more accurate way of interpreting the proper bulb life expectations.

For example; a TV like yours that is set to watch the winter Olympics for two hours per day will not last as long as one that is set to watch something like Ghost Hunters for two hours per day. The reason is the output demand on the bulb...brighter pictures will burn it out faster.

The best way to get the most life out of any bulb, or any TV as a whole, is to properly calibrate your TV. Getting the correct picture levels does more for the TV than simply improve the picture quality.

I recommend a calibration tool you can find on DVD called Avia. Or you could simply use some of the calibration images provided with some THX certified movies. These are by far not the best available choices, but are the simplest and much better than the ***** eye. The discs are intended for calibrating the output of video from dvd playback, but you still could use the same calibration settings for all of your outputs if you wish.

When I turn on the TV, the picture is fuzzy. After five minutes, the picture is clear but any words are out of focus even the menu for adjustments is out of focus. The convergence for red is clear but...


Hi,

Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

Best regards.

Best solution to improve picture quality. Screen


Try to turn the contrast down. It can really help out a lot. If this is not working look up your tv's best settings. CNET.com has some great settings under the forums.

If all else fails but a calibration dvd and go thru the settings. Some dreamworks and disney dvds even have them right under the disc extras. Hope I could help!

by the way, remember to cut some of the light in your room if it is well lit. It will help make the picture look better as your eyes can distiguse the light and darks better

Plasma glass cracked lg 50pc5


No argument- shop MUST accept this back - "goods not of merchantable quality" under the Sale of Goods Act.

You were watching the TV and it failed - the screen is the same as if the power module or anything else had failed. If they stick, threaten legal action & contact the Citizen's Advice Bureau & Trading Standards.

Assuming you bought brand new, you are on 100% solid ground here.
Do NOT try to fix it, you will invalidate warranty.

Won't turn off unless unplugged


Ther eis a stand by function on the Television. If you have the owners manual read about that function. Th ered light stays on because it is programed to come on a t a certain time. Go to menu and find the stand by function.
