Picture zoom may have been activated. Try MENU on remote and select "Picture" and look for "Normal", Zoom1", "Zoom2", "4:3", etc. Select normal or auto and exit.

Good luck

    Use the ASPECT button on the remote to switch between screen modes. Screen mode will be displayed in upper left of TV display. Press ASPECT untill "NORMAL" is shown. If the picture does not look right, you can adjust the screen position and size with on-screen menu. To do this Press ASPECT, Press ACTION, use left/right arrow to select ADJUST, use up/down arrow to select NORMAL and Press ACTION button. Press RECALL on remote to exit.

You have to take it into a shop and the cost will be more than a new set. You cannot buy a screen that big and install it yourself.

Laptop white screen

Maybe the lcd screen is going bad. Try an external monitor. if the external monitor works fine then your lcd screen on the laptop is going bad. If the external monitor behaves the same way, then the Video Card on the computer is going bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.

All my cables (dazzle dvc 100) are plugged in correctly but the game wont show up on my TV screen and on Pinaccle Studios 12 Plus it says a valid input signal was not recieved. Please help me

I had this same problem with the 100 and 500 version. I had to use HD connector on those devices and the RGB cables only work with some devices. It is kind of hit and miss on which works and which doesn't. I have an 8 year old VCR only that works on the RGB cables but my new VCR/DVD machines only work on the HD (Round black connector) connector output.

My tv comes on and has "unusable signal" floating on it

What is your signal source, OTA or cable? Did lightning or another type of power surge recently hit? Make sure you have the TV on the desired input.

If OTA check your antenna direction and that you have the Channel Setup (from the menu) set to Antenna. Also check if you have the right antenna to get stations in your area. gives the most likely channels and directions. will give more detailed information and more stations. Both sites assume outdoor antennas but the direction information is always good. Look for new construction or big trees that might block the signal. Do you have multiple TVs sharing the same antenna? You might need an amplifier.

If cable, check the Channel setup. Check for someone recently damaging your cable installation (cutting the wires, trying to split the signal to get it for free) Splitting the signal to multiple TVs may also be an issue, get an amplifier of the correct type. Some cable systems may require a bidirectional amplifier.

If you recently had a power surge, see if the TV works with other inputs.
Tuners can be replaced if the TV is worth the labor costs for you.

I hope this helps.

( My household had three tvs and a digital to analog converter that lost their tuners after a nearby lightning strike. We chose to replace the TVs since two were over 15 years old and the third was also out of warranty.)

My 3 year old grandson hit a plastic golf ball into the screen of my new Sony Bravia flat screen H/D TV. Two lines now go from the top to the bottm. Is this repairable?

Yes but you will need to replace the panel. in total to have this fixed about half the price of the TV (good way to get a figure), though you can save about half of that again by ordering your own panel and installing yourself.
Is not that hard to do, just open the tv and take it apart, place in new screen then work backwards to put everything back together... al the cables ect can only go one way.
Hope this helps in some way

No picture appears on screen

without seeing the set this is a hard one to fix if the button is slack when you press it then the button is going to be the problem otherwise it could be a transformer that has gone in the set, 12 years is a good age for a tv so i would suggest replacing it with a new lcd or plasma.
