Question about LG 42LG50 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Pixelated blacks and face shadows

I just bought this TV 3 days ago. My parents have the same TV and their HD channels and DVD images are crystal clear. I have messed with the picture settings a million times already, but I can't get rid of reddish splotches on darker background colors. People's faces also have weird pixel problems with shadows.

I don't think the problem is from my cable provider because I have the same problems with watching DVDs and playing Wii. I have an upconvert DVD player with HDMI cord and my Wii has component cables.

I have a 47 inch Philips HD TV. I switched to FioS and for some reason, some channels come in very choppy or pixelated. It is not consistent but by analog TNT is fine but my HD TNT is pixelated. But my...


Long story short, it is not your fault. Your provider will blame you, TNT, will blame your provider, and both are wrong.

The most likely cause is HD TNT is not a "real" HD channel. It is probably an SD recording TNT is upscaling from SD to HD. This can occasional create a dirty HD signal being broadcasted. Some TVs have trouble decoding this signal and end up with pixelated images because the image has been pre-stretched to fix the format.

Temporary solution would be to change the resolution of you TV for just the TNT channel. Some TV will let you select a preferred mode for a channel. If you can do this, set it to 720p instead of 1080p or try 1080i for TNT to see if this improves the image.

Also make sure that only one tuner is altering the images you are receiving if you have a FIOS box. If it is processing the image image in any way (color correct, resolution, etc.) turn those features off and let the TV do it.

Can't hook up Comcast cable box into tv. It is an HD comcast cable box and I am trying to hook it up to my childrens princess tv/dvd combo. I can't figure it out. Please help.


I assume this TV has no Audio In and Video In, from your Cable box there's an antenna out or cable out, connect that to your TV's antenna in, and make sure that your TV is tuned in to channel 3 or 4, try those two channels. You can only change channel thru your box, your TV channel is alway's on channel 3 or 4.

Shadowing on screen


You should get a good surge protector. Sometimes some areas have a spike in the power. That will cause interference in the TV signal coming from your PS 3. Try out different surge protectors that should solve your problem.

NO TV PICTURE


The best way is to contact your service provider and ask them to trouble shoot guide you, there should be a way to reset or diagnose the receiver or if you prefer go back to the place you bought it and ask for a replacement, You should still have the manufacturer's warranty, check that as well.
