Check your scart to see if any pins are bent or even a slight bit of dirt will affect the quality of your picture

Poor Picture Quality on Philips 42PFL7962D


Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one...
no other issues only a minor problem..

PC to TV HDMI poor text quality


You get best picture on any LCD monitor or TV when the PC video resolution is set to the native resolution of the monitor or TV. You need to look at your user manual to find out what the native resolution is in PC mode.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?


LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

Hello , I just purchased a 26" Toshiba LCD/HD flat screen TV today. The floor model had the nicest picture at Circut City of the other 26" TVs - but they were hooked up to receive HDTV. When I got it home,...


Yes, the newer flat panel TV's look great with HDTV but amplify the substandard analog TV signals.

I would compare the non HD to VCR quality. If that is what you are seeing then this is normal with non HD broadcasts (typically the channels 1-100).

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Poor picture quality & audio reception


If the input to a HD tv is not in HD format the tv won't display an image very well. Be sure your input to the tv is compatible with the tv's technology for optimum performance quality Also re-check the input source (such as converter box, dvd player, etc..) and be sure you have the correct input/output ports connected properly. Try to reset all yout tv settings back to manufacturers defult specs. When an input signal is sent to the tv most modern tv's have software built in to select the proper format to display the input image. There may have been a mismatch communication error when your tv software tried to "handshake" with your converter box input signals from its firmware. So try a reset solution and re-connect the tv without the converter and see if that helps. If not e-mail me and I'll determine if the tv needs technical servicing.

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!

CLEAR PICTURE ON MY 42


Dear LADY DAWN,

In order to get true high definition quality, you would want a high definition source. There really is not much else you can add to make your picture clearer, provided you have it hooked up with the best type of cables possible.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

FUZZY (SNOWY) PICTURE


Well, I can tell you it shouldnt have anything to do with your not having an HD box. The TV does not require a HD signal to give you a quality picture. The HD box only gives you the enhanced HD signal, but should work as any regular TV without it. How do you have it connected?
