Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

1 Answer

Picture clear, then "grainy" can hit TV and will clear up

Just started doing this; is this something that can be repaired or is it time for a new TV? Picture will be clear, then change to a "grainy" picture--but we can hit the side or top of the tv and it will go back to clear--sometimes for 5-6 hours, sometimes less.

Sounds like a cold solder joint in the tuner circuitry. Unless you can do it yourself it's probably not going to be worth the repair bill.

You have a couple of options.
1. Turn down the sharpness on your TV. Too much is overkill, anyway.
2. Whilst watching any movie, hit the triangle button for the movie settings & options. Turn up the noise reduction to +3, also the "mosquito" noise to +3.
These should give you a less grainy picture. Enjoy!

Grainy Sky+ Tv picture


Can't say it's a fix but when you press the tv button to make the picture better, cover the end of the remote and press sky so the tv and box don't pick it up.

It's more of a work around than a fix!

Picture goes out of focus


This is a classic example of a bad connection that sufficiently changes a circuit characteristic to cause a problem. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Look for any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings and resolder them. That should resolve the problem. Note: there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged. So be careful.

Not able to select HD on my Wii setup screen


Well see if it happens again, it may have been a one time thing. but try reconnecting the AV cables to the tv or change the picture settings on the wii setup options.
But this is important, is the picture grainy, or is there vertical black lines? if its black lines, i have the same problem and the only way to fix it is to send it to nintendo and theyll give u a new console. its due to overheating and the graphics card gets fried

I need a bit more detail on the word "GRAINY". At the outset, your description indicates a poor signal source, but then the word grainy leaves the door too wide open. Clarify please.

Le40m86bdx picture not sharp


I have a two and a half month old Sharp, LC-19SK24U-W. It was fantastic with fantasic, clear, beautifully colored picture until two weeks ago. All of a sudden, the picture starting getting darker and darker. Nothing had been adjusted from day one when I set up contrast, etc. This comes and goes but most of the time is an issue. I can make it a bit lighter but then it is so fuzzy and grainy it is a very poor picture. Also, while this began, one time the television turned itself off and then back on without a power surger or anything.

HELP!

Picture in picture / or picture problems


First thing you should try is unplug the set for several hours. If you have the same problem, then you are going to have a system control issue and or a standby power supply issue. These problem, unless you know how these circuits work in a TV set, will need to be looked at by a trained tech. Good Luck

KV-XJ29M50 29" TV-Loud thumping sound on startup


Symptoms are not related,what you hear is the high voltage turning on and that is normal if it only does it for less than a second,the grainy picture might be intermitant,dont turn it off,when the picture is grainy tap the side of the set to see if it racts and if it does you know you have a loose conection.This could be outside because of a loose ground on tha cable or inside in the tuner.
