Sounds like Either the cable from the wall to the TV is bad usually this will cause ALL channels to be fuzzy.Or your cable on the outside of the house is damaged.another common problem is the outlet on the wall has a bad connection.If they get painted over with wall paint this will also cause the problem.change the wallplate.If its damaged outside the cable company will usually fix it for pay for the service and it their responsibility to make sure you wiring outside the house is working properly.

Just bought a 55" DP55D44 Sanyo TV, and the picture seems to be showing fuzzy. How can adjust this?

The fuzziness is radio noise from space. No I am not kidding. It's from the background radio spectrum of the universe's creation and it is uniform and OMNI-directional, so it will always appear as snowy noise that is fuzzy in appearance. You can't remove this noise unless you connect a signal from a TV station or cable that is much stronger in strength than this noise. If you mean that a TV signal comes in and appear fuzzy, it is because this TV signal is very weak and you need a better antenna to increase the signal gain. Hope this helps.

TV is fuzzy and not showing a clear picture

  1. If your set is connected to a cable TV box via coax cable check the connection on the cable box (both Input and out to TV connections) tighten if necessary.
  2. If your using a cable splitter to split the cable to multiple TVs check those connections also.
  3. If this fails to correct the problem you may have a bad cable which your cable provider should replace at no charge to you.

Hey, i have a samsung ln32b360, just 2 months old. worked beautifully when i got it, but recently it started ghosting a little in very specific situations. then it started ghosting a lot, but only in dark...


First,If there are double images or "ghost" images on the TV's picture, check the cable connections and make sure they are secure.Because the loose cable connection would be a chance for the ghost picture

But if the cable is perfect and if you still get ghost picture then here is the solution:

The LCD Panel is defective. The problem is the T-con board that is used to decode the signal from the main board to the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel or T-con board if possible. The T-con will cost about 1/10 of the price as the LCD panel but except for a few new models, the T-con is not available. The LCD Panel is very expensive (usually from $600-700 for a 32" Sony).

The reason is that Sony makes the T-cons for each individual TV with different specs to match that of the LCD panel because of the low threshold for error between the LCD Panel and the T-con.

Its best to avil warranty and change the panel...

Please leave me comment, if you need furher assitance

Blinking red and green squares with blue fuzzy bars in the back

Before thinking of TV problem, you should play a DVD first and see how it goes. TV problem only happens when all sources were affected. If you have the same problem for all sources, open the cover, disconnect LVDS cable and re-connect it; then try to tap or shake gently the LVDS cable and see if the picture changes. If yes, replace LVDS cable. If not, then measure the power on supplies from main board to power supply board, see this 5 VDC is stable or not. If it works fine, the problem may come from T-con board or some case from defective panel.

Ghosts on my tv

if you can, try hooking up the tv to a different cable line in the house or bring a different tv into the room where the bad picture is [ you may have a bad connection or wire ] if this doesn't help, try rabbit ear antennas just to get a picture. if you still have ghosts on your tv, the problem is with your tv.if the picture is fine, there maybe a problem with your cable service.
hope this helps

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.
