Re: tperk

You probably do not have a high def signal.  If you do have a high def signal you need to use either component input or HDMI input to get high def.  I f you are using RF input you picture would improve marginally if you swithced to a video input.

Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

Best regards.

The picture quality on our WD 52528 is horrible - dark, blurry, and hard to see picture at all if not looking at the tv straight on.

Your satellit receiver should have the capability to hook to your TV either by using HDMI cable out from sat unit to HDMI in on TV. This sgould give you sound and audio, or it should have component output which is a series of three cables red, blue and green.The component cablesdon't provide audio so you have to use digital optical or composite cables for sound. Whos satellite box are you using?You should be able to press your menu and get into "system set up" and, there should be an option for HDTV. Go for the highest resoulution(1080 And a ratio of 16 x 9. You tv manual should tell you about screen set up. Let me know

Blurry Picture

I know these models came out around 2001, and I'm afraid that the problem sounds like it is related to the bulb going bad.

This article outlines how many TVs from around the turn of the century have had similar problems to yours.

I know bulb replacement is an option. You may want to call around to TV repair shops and see what your options are. In the end, though, it may be time to start saving up for a new TV.

Blurry tv

there is a focus control in the front of the set behind the front grill there is a door in the middle attached by screws take this off and it should be right behind it. There are six controls on a little box one row says focus and the other says screen don't adjust the screen controls. In some cases these are in the back of the set.

Turn on your projection TV and wiggle the coax cable from your cable box or antenna where it connects to the TV. If the picture fluctuates, you know that you have a loose connection, or that the coax cable is bad.

Blurry picture

In the store they use an HD source and connection. Is your cable box HD? It will have component or hdmi connections if it is.You have use either one to get HD everything else will be SD(standard def).And you have to be on an HD channel.Digital cable refers to how the signal is delivered doesn't mean its HD. SD channels on digital still look bad..

Use your input button on your television's remote control.... you should have plugged the wires into the COMP 1 area on the back of your TV.  You will also need to make sure your red and white audio cables are plugged in as well (Five total plugged wires) Press the input button until you see COMP1 at the bottom of the screen... there you will find your picture and sound.
