Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

2 Answers

Tv problem Will connecting component video cables to the tv and dvd player while still beiong turned on damage the colours of the picture. Not long after owning a new tv set, i discovered that there seems to be dimming effects on the picture. Picture dims when a scene changes from one to another and the background appears darkened. Some scenes look perfectly normal until they change to another . Is this what you call phospor burn. I can tell you for sure it isnt colour shading due to changing the direction of the tv as the problem has gone on for weeks. I tried the local channels, the satellite channels and dvd playback and they all display similar symptoms. What are the possible causes and what can i do without sending it to the repairmen. Your help is much sought after. Thank you.

Re: tv problem

To answer your questions, 1) no, there's no harm in plugging or unplugging the cables while the dvd player and tv are turned on, it's very helpful in case you need to switch from one dvd to another, or one tv to another to compare pictures.  2) phosphor burn is where a picture stays on the tv in one place for so long that it actually changes the appearance of the phosphors, you can't usually tell that it's happened when the tv's on, but when it's off, you can still see an outline of the image... this happens most on computer screens that display the same thing for hours and hours, like computer terminals with menus and such, you can still read the menu even when the computer's off.

Check the various automatic picture settings in the tv's menus, and try various combinations, there may be something out of adjustment in there.  Short of that, if it's new, as you indicated, get it serviced under warranty.

Connecting dvd

First, are you sure the cable is good? can you try it somewhere else? Second make sure your DVD is setup to output via component and the TV is using the input your connecting to.

Same set of sockets will be there behind your TV also.

The only connections that work are the component cables(color stream, RGB-Red, Green, Blue) which I understand is a better quality picture but the connections for my DVD player are RCA (Composite - Red,...

You'll need a DVD player that has component outputs. The composite carries the entire video information, while the component sends the three different color signals separately. The red and white cables are output cables. No all DVD players have the component outputs.

Picture turns into looking like a reverse negative

Often you will get a bluish or reddish looking picture if your wires from your cable box/satellite or DVD player are inexpensive RCA type video cables. Try using a nice set of component cables or HDMI cable from your sources to your TV. If this is your setup, try this first...its the most inexpensive first option.

No sound on TV

If you do not get result you can purchase one video rf converter. Rf converter contains one video input in yellow colour and two audio in red and white colour and one cable connector as outout. Connect dvd output to this converter and tune the program in which place you receive dvd signal.

Component Video Problem

The problem is not with your tv it's with your dvd player. You have to go into the setup on the dvd player and change your output setting to component.
