Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Anytime a program would have a "night" scene, we could hear the program but could not see it. Then approximately two weeks ago the t.v. was on satellite radio, then it wasn't. There was a smelled like that of something that had burnt . And, it would not power back up. I do not have an owners manuel for this t.v. to troubleshoot the problem, so is this a bulb issue or something on a much bigger scale?

From the research i've been doing on your issue, I have concluded that you do in fact need a new projection tv bulb. This shouldn't be too costly though so that's the good news. :)

Hi

As you have noted, something is clearly loose or burned. However, it is very difficult to say how easy it will be to fix. The bottom line here is it may be easy to fix (for a TV repair person) but if it is something like a cold solder joint, that may still take hours to locate, even if they can.

A 10 year old TV is going to be analog only and are you aware that over the air analog will be gone in a few months?

If you are getting the signal from a cable box of some sort, it might be worth finding a TV repair person to give it a try. A TV is not something I would ever suggest the uninformed try and repair as there are dangerous voltages running even when its switched off. If it were me, I would find the best repair person in the area for that brand and then find out what he charges per hour and I would limit the amount of time I authorize him to work on this set. It might be worth $100 to fix, but I sure would not want to spend $400 to fix it.

Also please tell me the brand and model no of your TV for the manual.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

My selector jumps from auto to scene and back, and while on scene mode it jumps from night to bird watching. It jumps like that even when it is set and I am zooming to take a picture


Your camera has developed a mind of its own. Unfortunately, it is not in accordance with yours.

U might consider a repair but check first for an approximate cost. I suspect that the repair will not be cost effective and you will have to get a replacement.

Every time i take a picture in low light or at night its blurry.


Set the Scene Mode for the appropriate Night landscape or Night protrait setting. If you are just taking in a view, then use Night landscape at nighttime (objects in the foreground could be out of focus in this mode). If you are photographing any number of people, animals, &/or objects at night, then use Night portrait (digital zoom would be unavailable in this mode).

In order to set the Scene Mode…
1. Enter scene mode: MODE in shooting mode --> SCENE (use the multi selector) --> OK.
2. Enter scene menu: MENU --> choose desired scene --> OK.
3. Frame the subject & shoot.

Exposure control options


The following exposure options are available: P (Program auto), A (Aperture priority), S (Shutter priority), and M (Manual). There are four scene programs modes available in which the camera will choose the optimal settings for the picture: Landscape: Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. Both the foreground and the background are in focus. Since blues and greens are reproduced vividly in this mode, the landscape mode is excellent for shooting natural scenery. Portrait: Suitable for shooting a portrait-style image of a person. This mode features an in-focus subject against a blurred background. Sports: Suitable for capturing fast-moving action such as sports scene or moving vehicles without blurring. Night scene: Suitable for taking night scene photos with a slower shutter speed.

Dark pictures


Be sure that you are capturing images in the right shooting mode. For example, if shooting a night scene your image will be underexposed and dark if the image is captured in the Program Auto mode for regular photography, or in any mode other than Night Scene. Be careful that when capturing images, nothing is obstructing the flash.
