Re: Bad tv picture

Could it be that you have setr up the TV set wrongly? Did you check if the antenna cable is fitted properly? the antenna is pointing in the right direction? That there are no obstructions to the antenna, in recieveing a good signal? Did you try using the TV, hooked to a VCR or DVD player? please check all this before blaming the TV.

Re: Bad tv picture

Take the set back and get an exchange or a refund of your money as this could be a focus adjustment, but I do not recomend that you even attempt to try the adjustment, as if you make a mistake, you will be stuck with the set as the manufacturer will blame you for this problem. Good Luck

I have a HL-P6163W, hooked to dish network hd

Fire the TV Tech! Your problem is the adjustment to the color wheel timing. To correct this: With TV OFF -> on remote, press MUTE, 1, 8, 2, POWER. The TV will come up in service mode: ( Left / Right arrow keys for item selection, Up / Down to change values, Menu to return to previous menu, Power to exit Service Mode)

Enter the submenu of item 1. DDP1011. Now, adjust item 4. INDEX DELAY to correct the "clay facing" problem you are having . Default value is 47.

You should have a "problem" image paused to check you work if possible. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

Is the f38310 digital ready or do I need a converter?

No you do not need a converter box your television is digital ready. I use mine with a regular antenna and recieve many channels mostly High Definition and some analog you should notice that when your hooked to a quality HD antenna and assuming you are within broadcast distance you will be very surprised at the quality you will no longer have blury or faded pictures they will be crystal clear. This is because digital broadcast is either there or it's not. no inbetween although you can get what is called speckling thats where little dots pop up randomly the best olution to this problem is buy an additional antenna and run both antennas in through a splitter and this should clear that problem up redundancy is the answer

Hope this helps

Focus and Screen. The focus control may help, just like focusing a set of binoculars or an old camera. Watch the picture on the TV, using a mirror can help and make an adjustment until the picture is as clear as you can get it. If it still is not clear it may mean that your picture tube is weak.
If you can avoid it, don't touch the Screen control. If you have, let me know and I can advise you on the proper way to adjust it.

Mitsubishi big screen blury

In all probability the picture is fuzzy too, its just harder to notice. This can be as simple as an adjustment in the back of the set. Carefully remove the back and look for the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out of the top). The should be 1 or 2 controls on it. One should be marked focus. Adjust that to get sharper focus.

Let me kow if that fails to resolve the problem.

We hooked it up with another DVD player, no difference, We used another TV, worked good. We changed all the cable cords, and made no difference. It comes right down to that TV. yes from aboe it is 100% sure that trouble is in tv. every channel is blury and has a trail. it is due to focus of your tv is not ok 1 adjust focus control 2 focur wire going to crt base might be loose due to some foreign material deposited on crt base. 3 defective crt base. 4 if tv is old there might be possibility of crt getting weak. hope this will help.

Since the set turns off, I would assume it's not a hook up problem. The problem is either a bad picture tube or a bad video output amplifier. Either one is a little pricey. I just Googled this set and the cost of repair would excede the replacement cost. Hope this helps.
