Picture distorted! my picture is completely distorted. i tried switching cables, and switching sources and i come to the conclusion that its something wrong w/ my tv. i dont get any funny lamp indicators, just a distorted picture. it hasn't been firing up on the first time lately. i'd have to turn it off and back on to get the fan to start up and the lamp to fire up. is the lamp bad or is it something else?

Got new STK392-040 chips and picture is still distorted. Manual convergence still won't alligne all colors.

the 183 is entry into the tech menu===you need to test all the low value resistors around the convergence chips(only 6 or 8) and they will read low and a resistor with NO reading may be your problem.

Also these sets use a pico fuse going to each chip--either right with it or back at the source----know what a pico fuse looks like"

I have a green line in my picture. The picture is distorted some

Press the menu button on the tv if the tv still ahs the green line the tv needs repair. If there is no green line through the menu try a second source, a dvd player or a game system. If the issue only is with the original source, replace the original source.

My 57" Toshiba projection TV recently started having picture problems. The picture is distorted and wavy. The picture on the PIP screen is fine. is this a common problem and is it fixable?

First bypass the cable box and hook the tv directly to the cable to see if the problem goes away. if the problem persists you possibly have a bad input board.

The HDMI doesn't work properly


The resolution is only set by the sending unit, in your case the cable box. You need to change this to at least 720P something the your TV can handle.

Now once you have down this, to try and solve your HDMI problem I suggest you do the following.

Switch-off your cable box and the TV set, unhook the HDMI cable.

Now reinsert it carefully to make sure it connects properly on both sides.

Now first switch on your TV and set the input to Video 6 ( your HDMI channel )

Now wait for 30 secs. Switching on your cable box.

Do not press anything and check if your picture now stays on without shut-down.

if the menu and other startup screens on the cable box is not flickering, but the normal picture you might have a HDMI conflict with your TV set.

O, you cannot change the input types.

Hope this helps!

I connected my Philips DVDR 3576H to my Sony Bravia TV and it looks like connection doesn't work. I used cables provided by Philips but I can not get access to this empty channel, on which I could get the...

The source is E1, unless you are trying to display something froma camcorder or security cam.
Philips does not provide enough cables with this product - they only provide you one set with which to PLAY a movie. You will need another red, white and yellow cable with which to RECORD. If you have a cable/satellite box, connect a 2nd red, white and yellow cord from cable box OUT to Philips AV IN. Switch the SOURCE on the Philips remote to E1, and your TV to whichever source you have the original red, white and yellow plugged into. You should get picture, and be able to record now.

Panasonic big screen - 7 years old. picture is distorted on top and bottem. has green ghost images

See if the problem is only occurring on HD sources. If it occurs on all sources - antenna, dvd player, cable box, etc then your convergence is off.
Some sets have a manual convergence option, but others do not - half of the time it doesn't work anyways. If you try the manual convergence, and it does not allow you to perform the required operations, then your convergence board is bad and needs to be replaced.

Humming from HLP5063WX TV and no color


Initially, it would be suggested to try viewing a DVD or a VCR and determine if the humming sound & no color persists. If yes then conclusively, there is something wrong with the TV. If none, then the source of the humming sound would be the tuner section (internal to the TV) or your cable TV/aerial or your cable box/decoder.

If the humming sound and no color is present in either TV tuner/channel and with an external video source such as a DVD, then chances are that a large filter capacitor inside the TV needs to be replaced. It would probably be in the power supply section AC side.

If the humming sound and no color is present only on TV tuner/channel, you would have to check your TV signal source. If you are using an aerial, it may require re-orientation; if it were a basic cable, then you would need to consult with your cable provider; if you are using a cable box/decoder, then the problem could either be with the box/decoder or again your cable provider.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Redish distorted cable picture until I change input source and then go back to cable input

When you say brand new, just how new is it? Your unit could be covered by the warranty. Certainly something worth checking into. If it works fine on all inputs except cable and the cable box has been changed your problem is probably in the digital receiver in the TV. This is something you will need a qualified repair tech to look at but should not be an expensive fix (compared to the cost of the unit). First make sure it is not covered under warranty. Free is still better than having to pay! Good luck.
