Question about RCA L23W10 23 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Poor Picture Quality

I have an RCA L23W10 Television - but am having problems with the picture quality. Whenever I'm watching a movie/tv show, and the scene in is one that is darker, it becomes impossible to see what is going on. I've tried finding a way to adjust the resolution, or contrast, or any of those options to make it better, but can't even find where to go to access those features and adjust them to see if it works better.
Any ideas/clues on what I could do?

    Gotcha - found those settings, any hints/ideas if adjusting all of those options does not fix the situation?

Todd, In the user menue there has got to be adjustments for the brightness, contrast, sharpness,etc. I know there is no such thing as a simple tv anymore. On some sets if you do not have a remote control, you cannot make any adjustments. If you have one for this set and it works, trust me, the settings are in the on screen menue.
Hope this helps,

    I don't think you will have any other issues. If you do it is because of a Main Board failing. But i do not think you will have to worry about that.

    Hope this helps

Poor viewing quality


By poor color quality, do you mean that if you turn the color control all the way down, the black and white picture is more like black and red, green or blue - or do you have a good black and white image? If the B&W image is good, and the TV is an old (8+ years) one, maybe the mirror inside the set needs a good cleaning - especially if there are smokers in the room. If you have a B&W picture that is tinted, then you may have to go into a service menu to adjust it back to a better picture. Hard to guess the problem without more specific description of symptoms.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Poor picture quality & audio reception


If the input to a HD tv is not in HD format the tv won't display an image very well. Be sure your input to the tv is compatible with the tv's technology for optimum performance quality Also re-check the input source (such as converter box, dvd player, etc..) and be sure you have the correct input/output ports connected properly. Try to reset all yout tv settings back to manufacturers defult specs. When an input signal is sent to the tv most modern tv's have software built in to select the proper format to display the input image. There may have been a mismatch communication error when your tv software tried to "handshake" with your converter box input signals from its firmware. So try a reset solution and re-connect the tv without the converter and see if that helps. If not e-mail me and I'll determine if the tv needs technical servicing.

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!

Poor picture quality


The problem is probably the convergence power supply.The switching power supply chip on the convergence board will burn out, producing a rounded picture with 3 separate colors. The chip is a long, heat-sinked SIP (single-in-line package) located on the convergence board. You can find replacements on ebay.
