Re: SAMSUNG TVHD has Hrglass effect as picture
The set has a pin amp fault. This is due to failed components in the pin amp section, and also possibly in the horiz or vert scan sectioins. If you are experienced in TV servicing, have the service manual, and have the service instruments and tools, it is possible to troubleshoot this fault.
These types of problems can be complex to service. The tech will have to refer to the service manual about checking specific waveforms and voltages in the pin amp sections.
I suggest you return the set for warranty service. If you bought it used, you will have to take the set in for an estimate. This type of fault may not be low cost to service.

unfortunately cable does not give you the best quality picture and "fuzziness ' is the reduced resolution being displayed on the tv. the easy way to check the picture quality is to get a decent hd antenna and scan using it for free hdtv signals, if these are also fuzzy, on all channels then the tv has a problem but if it is only on a few lower resolution channels then its just the way it is until everyone is hd 720 or better.
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!
