Watching tv last night and the tv went blank,no picture but still had sound.had this on all there a projection lamp on this tv ?

You have a CRT projection TV. There's no lamps in this that can be swapped out. The technology is very similar to a glass tube CRT TV.

If the picture disappeared but you still have sound then you haven't pressed the wrong input or pressed the picture mute because sound would go too. As a quick check, try any function (vol, contr, bri etc) that normally brings up an onscreen display. If that has gone too then it's a TV issue with the drives to the three tubes. If the OSD is still visible, then the problem is either a source signal issue (broken or disconnected cable; menu changed to affect the signal output of an external source) or the TV isn't processing the signal correctly.

For TV problems where something has broke, the answer is getting the TV repaired or replaced.

Digital tv tuner not displaying picture

. Try putting you tv set to channel 3 or 4. Try your tv in all modes. Check the back also to see if in the right spots with the wires. Check your channel scan status, try it on anntena and try it on cable, run channel scan on both. good luck. Try vcr wires if cable wires dont work. vcr wires are yellow red and white. Try another cable cord sometimes they get old. Try looking at your remote and setting it to tv.

Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

Best regards.

Blurry picture

In the store they use an HD source and connection. Is your cable box HD? It will have component or hdmi connections if it is.You have use either one to get HD everything else will be SD(standard def).And you have to be on an HD channel.Digital cable refers to how the signal is delivered doesn't mean its HD. SD channels on digital still look bad..

I have a Philips 15" LCD HDTV with no picture, but sound. How can I get the picture back. I don't have any audio or video connected, nor do I want any connected. The Model # is 15PF5120.


KIndly check antenna/cable connections. Are they properly secured to the TV’s ANT75ω plug? If they are then :
• Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting.
• Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available channels.
• Press the AV button on the remote to make sure the correct signal source is selected.
• If using an accessory device, be sure that it is functioning properly.
• If in PC Mode, a video signal MUST BE present or the TV will turn off.

If this does not work then reset to the original factory settings by performing the following steps:

  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.
  2. Press the CURSOR DOWN button to highlight the INSTALL menu, then press CURSOR RIGHT to enter.
  3. Press the CURSOR DOWN button repeatedly to highlight the FACTORY RESET control, then press CURSOR RIGHT to enter.
  4. Press CURSOR DOWN to select “YES” to reset the original factory settings.
  5. Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

You're talking about picture-in-picture. Simply hook up a second source or split the one cable input you have now into two leads with a splitter from somewhere like Radio Shack. Then bring up the PIP and select the input. Now you have two different things to watch each from their own channel. This wont work if you have dish... But you could watch the DVD perhaps if you hook it into one of the available inputs in the back of the Tv and select that input in PIP mode.
Good Luck!

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

No picture but sound on panasonic plasma

Unplug the TV and disconnect any HDMI cables to the set. If the issue goes away there is a possibility that your HDMI source is causing the problem. Anything on the HDMI can cause odd problems with the TV since the serial data and serail clock lines are routed on HDMI. Those are the 2 commmunication lines used throught the TV for operation so anything HDMI that might load down one of those can cause issues.

Can't get second picture in Picture-in-Picture (PiP)

Watching two separate tv channels at the same time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help. Let me know if you need more assistance.
