Question about Proview HV-177 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

HV-175 LCD The picture looks like it has "fallen" in that there is a big blue band running across the top of the screen. Also, when I hit "display" the numerals appear to be ghosted and doubled. Any thoughts?

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)

  1. Check the cables and connections: Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
  2. Check the  display issue with  a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal. For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV , switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away. If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and . If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Try to Reset the TV ( LCD) quality options. Please look in to User Guide to make the TV to factory Defaults..
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV . If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

I hope that this should resolve the issue. However, if the issue still persists then please contact LCD manufacturer for further more on the issue.

My screen is bleeding pink/red fromtop ofscreen with lines coming down into picture. Looks like paint spill.Why?

It sounds as though you may have a cracked lcd panel. Has the set bee hit by any object, or fallen forward at some stage?

Possibly if there are young members of your household, the incident may have gone unreported..... ??

If it is the display panel, the only cure is replacement of the display, which might not be viable due to the high cost involved??

Why has my sanyo flat screen television only got coloured horizontal lines across the screen?

That might be an issue with the TVs picture tube if it was not one of the LED or LCD TVs. Please get a technician changed it. If it was any one of the LCD or LED TVs, then it would be more expensive than you expect.

No image, Just red and blue vertical line on display.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

My syntax Olevia LT30 HV turned on and displayed blue screen for 1-3 sec and than no signal nosound??any advice seems to be inverter issue.

Since you lost both sound and picture, I would suggest to take a look at the power supply for bad filter capacitors, look for bulging on the top of capacitors. If the backlight inverter board is bad you should still get the sound.
