Question about Mintek DTV-260 26 in. LCD Television

Ghosting with Component

Hello, my problem is that whenever I use component connections on this TV (PS3, DVD Player, etc) after about 5-15 minutes the blacks start to blend into the whites, like when you draw a line with a pencil and rub your finger on that line it will start to blur. Does anyone know of any way to fix this problem or a way of contacting Mintek perhaps? This only happens with component, and its not the cables themselves, I have tried on other TV's and everything is fine but not on this one.

I have a Denon AVR2307 to which is connected,via optical audio and component video a DVD player/recorder and this works well but in order to take some of the work off the player part I've bought another...

HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.

The only wires that you should need to hook the dvd player upto the tv would be your component cables. (Yellow, Red, White Cables) Going from your dvd players component out, to your TV's component IN jacks. They should be labeled as such.

Post back if you have any further question's or comment's. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Flashing / ghosting with Bose Lifestyle V30

I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues. Component cabling from your devices should eliminate your problems.

I hope that helps.

Denon AVR-488 , problems routing cable box through receiver to tv

If you don't have one, the manual is available online:


1. Reset to default values. Per page 36 of manual: 1. Turn off Power. 2. Press Power while simultaneously pressing Speaker A and Speaker B. 3. Once the display starts flashing at intervals of about 1 second, release the two buttons.

2. Make sure you have AM or FM radio reception. This makes sure your speakers, amps, etc are connected and working correctly.

3. Connect DVD player to HDMI 1 in and TV to HDMI Monitor Out.
Play a known good DVD that works when you connected the DVD directly to the TV via HDMI.

Select the DVD/HDP input on the receiver and play the DVD. You should not have to perform any input assignments, etc. It should just work, as HDMI1 is the default system setting for DVD.

4. If possible, obtain a STB with HDMI out & repeat step 3 using the HDMI2 TV/CBL input. Keeping the signal path all digital (HDMI) will give you a better picture quality than forcing several analog to digital conversions (component video is analog).

4A. To use the component connection, first test by connecting the STB directly to the TV via component video/audio if possible. This tests that the component video output of the STB is working correctly.

Next, remove direct connection and connect via receiver. Connect STB to receiver as shown on page 13 in manual. Connect component video output from STB to component video input #2 (tv/cbl) on receiver. Connect the STB audio output to the corresponding tv/cbl audio inputs.

Make sure nothing is connected to the HDMI2 input or to any other TV/CBL inputs (composite video, s-video, digital coax audio).

Now select the TV/CBL input and turn on the STB. You should have both audio & video.

Blurry Screen on Panasonic CT-32HL44

I solved my problem. Apparently the RCA cables where missing with the image. So I bought some Component cables and that fixed my problem.

PS3 won't connect to TV with component video.

You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.
