Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony KF50WE610 720p scale is wrong

I have two problems with my set: 1 All 720p programs come out as 420p or 420i (I'm not sure which one but the set shows the picture as a shrunk size like 420p). Note that 1080i programs work fine. To debug I have tried to use both the HDMI and componet inputs and both show the same issue. 2 The TV has trouble starting: many times the light will blink and I hear a buzz upon power up. Sometimes the picture will come after a period of time.

    Thanks circuitcity for your response.

    I figured out the source of the first issue. It turned out that the cablebox was somehow put into an incorrect mode of operation. The other box that was incorrect is my netgrear EVA8000, video streamer. They must be setting up the incorrect signal for my TV because I have to use 1080i and not 720p. All other 720p sources are working, including my DVD player.

    The 2nd issue doesn't appear to the the lamp because it has been a few months and the lamp is now working without any problem - it starts without any buzz. In other words, the problem is very sporadic. Typically when lamps fail, they no longer work. In this case, the lamp will not work on some occasions and it has been doing this now for over 1 1/2 years. How can a lamp continue to work for this long without completely failing?

(1) what is your source? cable box? satellite? Your source could be your problem. Your TV just pick up what is sent to it.

(2) Light blinks and buzzing is a symptom of a lamp going bad. Just change your lamp. lamp part number XL-2100

I created a barcode & used PLU programs 100/200/300 to register it with my ER-380M. The barcode works ok with Price Enquiry but if scanned for a sale brings up a "Scale Error". Where did I go wrong ?

It sounds like you set it as a scale PLU so now it is trying to check the weight of the product on your scale. Set it as a non scale PLU

Technic SL5200 turntable speed is to fast on 33/45

1. Some of these turntables were designed to work on multiple voltages. If yours has a voltage adjustment make sure it's set for 110 or 120 V (North American) or whatever your power line voltage is. 2. Does it have a variable speed control with markings around the platter that tell you when it's on speed? if so, make sure you're reading the right scale when you adjust speed. Some Technics turntables have scales for both 50 Hz and 60 Hz (North American) line frequency, with two rows of dots for each, and if you're looking at the wrong scale when you adjust the knobs you'll get the wrong speed. 3. If neither of these solves the problem, you'll have to take it in for service.

Make sure the video cables are securely attached to console and TV. Check the game for smudges, scratches, or dirt. Make sure the video resolution settings are compatible with your television like 1080p 720p instead of 420i. Just some ideas

I keep getting e on scale dont know what i did wrong setting it up Model bfm884dqn-60 it is for 4 users height of 5 3 1/2 is displayed pls HELP Thanks

I think that those numbers are for the spacing of the feet? I'm not sure what that number is, but anyway you have to push select 3 times and it will save and then the scale will zero out. After that you can push one of the four buttons and program you height/age/gender. I think they really made this scale kind of user difficult.

TV set always starts up indicating 420p. How do I get it to 1080?I have Bell expressvu HD

is your cable or sat in HD(720p, 1080i, 1080p) over the air broadcast in the usa is in digital so it should start at the highest res available in your area

next are you using HDMI or composite for your cable or sat going into your tv if not your not going to get higher than 420p because A/V and S-video do NOT support HD

check your cable/sat box is it HD(high def) or SD(standard def) if SD going through cattv/attn in your only going to get 420p

now for changing the resolution its automatic it goes to the highest setting on its own

you can control the resolution through your cable/sat box, blue ray/hddvd player and other HD devices connected to the tv through the options menus of those devices BUT only when connected through

HDMI(supports 720p, 1080i, 1080p)
composite(supports 420p, 420i, 720p)
A/v and S-video(supports 420p)
cat tv/attn in(supports 420p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p) only supports what the tuner will do

How do i program the taylor body fat scale

From the Taylor web site

The easiest way to program the scales is to pull the manual up for the scale and follow the directions. The procedure does vary according to the scale.
In general the procedure is to tap the power or set button until it brings up the height and then hit the arrow keys until you get to the correct height. Hit the power or set after each entry usually height, age, gender, athlete mode. It will then beep and you will need to hit the arrow up until you see 1 (this is the memory number) tap the set or power and it will beep again. The scale is now programmed.
The general recall procedure is to hold the power or set button down for 2 seconds (or tap the up arrow) until the memory number goes up. Then just tap the power or set and it will beep. Then step on the scale to get the information. The weight will be first, then running zeroes, then thefat%, and finally water%.

My proscan tv is on 420p setting. how do i set it to 1080p?

You do not set the resolution at the TV, the TV will display what video resolution you feed it, I also doubt that the your 19" can do 1080P.
