I am having this same problem as this one above (62HM95). The issue I'm having is that it will also not work full screen. I selected the 'Split' option on the remote and the picture on the left is fine... absolutely clean and perfect, with audio. The picture on the right is completely distorted in very strange colors (mostly constant variations of purple), with audio as well. You should note, that the same video information was feed into different imputes to select for the split. In other words, I feed the cable stream into the TV using the component video (Y B R) as well as the coaxial cable and selected both options for the purposes of displaying the same information side-by-side. On screen I selected video option four (4 for color stream HD) and option (0 for cable/antenna). If I highlight either side and select one of them (4 or 0) the screen goes full screen and I see nothing but one solid color of purple. I've researched the purple and they call it 'Electric Purple'. That is all I see... just the solid purple, with the audio. What I have also noticed is that, If toggle between imputes while in the full screen option and come back to either option (4 or 0) the image plays/appears OK for about 2 seconds then goes back to solid purple. I just can't understand why this is happening especially when the on-screen menu displays perfectly fine. I cannot enjoy this TV by only watching half of it in split mode. Besides the multiple replacement bulbs I've had to buy I've completely had it with this TV
A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.
I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.
Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.
You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.
If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...
And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
YOU HAVE AT LEAST A DOZEN VIDEO INPUTS ,THE BEST IS THE MONOLINK.WHATEVER WAY YOU HAVE IT HOOKED UP .YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE INPUT MANUAL AND PICK OUT THE ONE YOUR ON .IF YOU DONT WANT TO SPENT 30 BUCKS ON A THE DVI-HMDI MONOLINK CABLE.OR 10.00 ON THE R/G/B TRI CABLE ,FIND ANY COLOR CRAPPY LITTLE SKINNY **** SPEAKER JACK CXABLE AND STICKIT IN THE YELLOW INPUT 1,2 0R 3 THEN GO ON THE INPUT SCREEN AND SCROLL DOWN TO WHATEVER INPUT YOU PUT IT ON.AND OF COURSE HOOK IT TO THE VIDEO OUTPUT ON YOUR BOX SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE 480 P RESOLUTION YOU WIL GET WITH A 50 CENT WIRE.
I had a similar issue, try adjusting the advanced settings on the DVD player.....I can't recall which settings it should be on, but when I adjusted them on my upconverting DVD player everything worked fine after.
yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit.
