    DVI option? I have a cable box and the only wire coming out is a coaxial... what do I do, and how do I get it do DVI? RGB Stream? I hooked my game up to it using the HD cables and it is still dull like the coaxial... how to I tune it correctly? I've tried messing with all of the sliders from brightness to sharpness - alast, Nothing.

This is a common situation with the rear projection build. its a combination of the burn in effect and also, bad tuning. you can get a better picture by using the DVI option. rgb stream can give you a better picture as well. adjusting the sharpness can help sometimes.

    I have this same set. the dvi option is only available if your cable box can allow it. the rgb/HD stream can be used with the appropriate box as well. most cable companies should ahve these hd recevers upon request. i put a new tuner in my set , which is similar to yours, and it cleared up most of the fog. i also replaced the lamps as well. and finally, i orderd a new screen insert from rca. its like new again.

My Vizio GV42L is fading to a dull whitish color after 2-3 minutes. I can still see the TV program I am on but the screen just goes to a dull whitish color. No boxes or anything popping up. Basical


Either its back light inverter board, or, the LVDS cable has the fault. First try by re-seat the LVDS cable, and check. Thus you can make sure about the fault. If you wish to get more details, check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic /Timeslide, can be selected by the drop-down list, by the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name / model number / IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

Dull/blurry picture


Sorry but You Don't.

Imagine taking a small Jpeg photo and blowing it up to Billboard size. It will be pixelized and dull.

Same with HDTV's. You can upconvert and adjust til your eyes turn blue, but you cannot take a Standard Def signal and make it look better by showing it on an HDTV. Some Standard Def material is better than others but ultimately what you see is what you get

Plasma TV screen dull


yep, do u have a digital multimeter? if so, measure all the voltages from the power board located top middle. if u look at the top right of the panel, there is a sticker with va, ve, vset, vsc settings. ground the black lead, and use the red lead to read each of the settings on the pow bd. if there are more than 2 mismatches, its your power board and needs replaced.

Screen goes dull at times


The dulling picture really sounds like a lamp failing. You would need the sony lamp xl-2100u
The ghost image may be easier to fix, sometimes as lcds age you will get a slight shift in a color. deep in the sony menu there is a parameter (menu-setup-imageshift) that will give you 3 levels of correction, this may solve this issue.
