Bottom part of screen off and on brightness on component input
When I am using component input from DVD player or what not, I noticed that the bottom of the screen wil go bright (not too bright though, it's tolerable) and then it will go darker (back to normal) after about 10 seconds. Then this process will repeat again after about 5 seconds. This happens in a clockwork and cyclic manner. This TV is only a year and a half old and I bought it brand new.
This problem only happens when I use the component inputs. I tried different DVD players but they all do the same thing. When I use the composite for the video input, everything is normal. Thanks for any help!

You seem to be using the Video & Audio connection. Start at the Player. Connect cables to YELLOW Video, RED Right Audio WHITE Left Audio Then go to TV and find the YELLOW input RED input and WHITE input. On some TV's they are separate, some combine them with the COMPONENT inputs (Component is 5 cables you will use 3 of them if you only have COMPONENT inputs)
Some TV's have an input button on the remote but no on screen selection. Try pressing the input repeatedly to access the other inputs. Lastly you will not get upscaling if you are using the 3 cable hook-up. To get upscaling use an HDMI cable to connect. Be sure to not have both types of cables plugged in at the same time HDMI by itself is best. If you reply with the modelof the sanyo TV I'll try to get you more info.
what type of connection to use. Look at the back of your DVD player. It
should at least have RCA (red, yellow, white) output ports. It may also
have component out, S-video out, VGA out, or HDMI out. These
connections vary in picture quality and price, HDMI being the most
expensive and providing for the highest-quality picture. Whichever type
of connection you decide to use, you also need to verify that you have
the same connection on your TV. Flat screen TVs typically have more
connection options than other types of TVs, so you should at least have
component, RCA and HDMI inputs.
the DVD payer to the flat screen TV. Take one end of the cable or
cables you decided to use and connect to the output on the DVD player.
The other end should be connected to the corresponding input on the TV.
Video input connections are usually found on the sides of flat screen
TVs. Once the DVD player has been connected, you are ready to use your
DVD player functionality. Tune your TV to the input that you used for
your DVD player by pressing the button on your remote labeled "input,"
"source," "TV/video," Source select," "TV/AV" or the like. For
instance, if you used an HDMI cable plugged into your TV's "HDMI 1"
input, press the input selection button until you see HDMI 1 on the
screen. Power on the DVD player, insert a DVD into the player and press
play and you should now see a feed from your DVD player.
Disconnect component cable while observing screen, just to make sure that is your problem. If it is and you already substituted the dvd player and it still happens,, try replacing the cable, it may be defective. If it still happens there may be some kind of a processing defect with the component input of your tv, why not just return to RCA's
Do not use component video. Test S video or 3 rca's red black and yellow(video) , see if they work! you need all 3 inputs on component video, sounds like you may have the colors mixed, check all color coding slowly. Sometimes the comp video out can be too strong, try using a splitter , reduces signal by 3 db, try 2 then 3 in line. This is only a test. keep in touch...
I have this same machine, you did'nt mention what input you are using (composite, S-Video, component or HDMI) or what type of display you have (CRT, LCD, Plasma etc.).
If your T.V. has a HDMI input I recommend using that, if not and it's of fairly recent vintage use the component inputs (not to be confused with composite video inputs, or yellow RCA-type input).or at the very least use the S-Video input.
In the setup menu (on screen) try setting the "TV Screen" option to the 480p setting and if you are using the HDMI input try setting that to the highest resolution your T.V. has or set it to "Auto"
Finally in the on screen video menu select the "Video" setting and set the "Still Mode" option to automatic, and the "Output Level" to lighter or darker whatever your preference is.
Remember...Always use HDMI or component video inputs on your television (if it has those inputs)!
Hope this helps!
The color wheel bing noisy is a common problem iyt will eventually give a negative type picture, Loewe have now a solution to service this without replacement,I haven't tried it yet but I have one in the wirk shop to do. The second issue is probably a signal board issue, the tv handle menu systems differently from AV inputs. Loewe do part exchange prices on signal boards.
Before you change the signal board test with an AVS input from a camera or something, earlier models were sent out before Loewe had a license for HDCP and this can also cause the problem of no signal.
PS is progressive scan, unless you have the player hooked up to a HDTV on its component inputs it wont play video, you need to locate button either on the front of the unit or on the remote for the Progressive Scan, this might be a good thing to look up in the manual as I dont know much about this unit.
