Picture Quality Is there preventive maintenance that can be performed to help picture quality. The picture just isn't as clear as it used to be. I have tried magic focus and that doesn't help. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

TV picture not clear

First we need to know a little more details about the kind of TV you have, the kind of service (Cable, Satellite or off Air).
Comparing showroom to your home is also something we need to know. Was the showroom using Cable or Satellite. Satellite will always have a better picture quality wise.
If you are using composite input for the signal path between TV and source this would not produce a High Dif picture Composite = Yellow for video, red and white for audio. If you are using Component source that will produce a HD signal cable is RED/BLUE and Green with different audio.
The best quality is using an HDMI cable, this is all in one cable and the sources is the best. One last thing, if you are using the RF *cable as source it will not give you a quality signal.

When i go on webcam it does be breaking up and picture al fuzzy

Your webcam may not be of very good quality so you might be stuck with that fuzziness until you get a better one. If this isn't the case, it could also be your internet connection. If your bandwidth is being used up(downloading or streaming something) or your internet connection isn't all that great, you may only be able to broadcast at a low quality.
Hope this gives you some insight!

On my 5800 xpressmusic the camera quality is not good. even i checked the quality on 5233 which has a 2MP are much clear than my phone.. please suggest

I have Nokia 5800 as well, but camera quality is good so far. Check your camera setting. Open Camera > Option > Setting > Click Photo quality > Drag the quality level to 3M - High > OK/Choose > Back to camera. Try to capture a picture and see if your problem get solved. And don't forget to click twice on capture button. First one is half push (like in digital camera) rather long until you get green box in the screen means the focus is ready, then push harder to take a picture.

Hope this help and if this helpful RATE please.

Lines on print. There's are three lines on picture print only. Can't see the line on document. It's about 1/4 inch wide and going throught top to bottom.

Have ou gone into your menus. Into troubleshooting, then image quality.
You will want to run both the eliminate light stripes and eliminate smears procedures. that will purge the print head, blow air through the jets and hopefully resolve the problem. I do believe the 8550 has a Jet Substitutin procedure where you can do a workaround and make other jets make up for the light areas.
here are some directions, Will forward more

  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Troubleshooting Print Quality Page], and then press the [OK] button.
  4. Evaluate the 'Light Stripes Test' page for missing printhead jets, such as missing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black color bars. The 'Light Stripes Test' page is the last page of the Troubleshooting Print Quality Page that printed.

    WARNING: To avoid injury, do not touch the sharp metal strip attached to the clear rubber wiper blade in the Maintenance Kit.

  5. Use a clean lint-free cloth or a new paper coffee filter to gently clean the maintenance unit's clear rubber wiper blade, use only a wiping motion across the entire length of the wiper blade, and then empty the waste tray. A dirty maintenance kit wiper blade can cause white lines and weak or missing printhead jets.

  7. Repeat step 3 to reprint the Troubleshooting Print Quality Pages. If there are no missing or partially missing color bars then the print quality problem has been resolved. If there are missing or partially missing color bars then the printhead cleaning procedure will need to be performed. Continue with the next section.
To clean the printhead using the basic eliminate light stripes procedure:
  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Eliminate Light Stripes], and then press the [OK] button.
  4. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Basic], and then press the [OK] button. The printer will perform a head cleaning, which will take about five minutes. The printer will then print a cleaning page and a light stripes test page.
  5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 one more time. If there are no weak or missing jets then the print quality problem has been resolved. If there are still weak or missing jets after two basic light stripe cleanings, continue with step 6.

    NOTE: Do not try the Advanced Eliminate Light Stripes Cleaning mode without performing two basic cleanings first.

    To clean the printhead using the advanced eliminate light stripes procedure:

  6. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Advanced], and then press the [OK] button.
  7. Select the missing jet color and number. If necessary, check the light stripes test page to determine the color and jet number of the missing jet.

    NOTE: Only perform the advanced light stripe cleaning once. If weak or missing jets still persist, continue with step 8.

  8. Print the Troubleshooting Print Quality Page. Evaluate the Light Stripes Test page for missing printhead jets, such as missing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black color bars. If necessary, perform the basic eliminate light stripes procedure one more time. If the Advanced Eliminate Light Stripes procedure does not resolve the weak or missing jets, perform the Enable Jet Substitution Mode. See the Related Items below.

Pictures taken from sony digital camera (6 Mega pixel) are not clearly seen on SONY DVP FX720. Is there any settings we need to do to get good quality?

change the format eg 640 x 480 to a higher resolution ...a good quality uses about 250kb per picture most jpegs use 50kb to save space
a really good picture can use 500kb.

I can't print a good quality picture using photo paper

Make sure that you've adjusted the quality of your picture via the printer software. If everything checks out in those settings, try using the option to realign the ink cartridges, also found in the printer software. If all else fails clean up the cartridges themselves with a moist cloth (one that you won't mind staining) and try again. If that still fails, replace the cartridges, and if you still can't get a clear picture, I would assume that the printer isn't capable of producing the quality that you need.

HDTV has fuzzy picture

Greetings blueberrie,

Many times the cables that you are using can contribute to picture quality. You will want to utilize the best connection possible, in most cases HDMI or component cables. Also, you may want to invest in a line filter, sometimes known as a surge protector. Many of these items are able to control the inconsistencies in power your unit receives, giving you clean power, which will influence picture quality.

I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Pictures are not the quality I expected

Use the Quality setting on your camera to select a picture resolution. To change the quality setting: Press the Menu button. Select Picture Quality, and then press the OK button. Select the Picture Quality setting you want to use, and then press the OK button. Press the Menu button to exit the menu. NOTE: The setting remains until you change it.
