I work for Memorex tech support. Our number is 800-919-3647.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty is one year from the date of purchase. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    G'Day!

    Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair
    issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting.
    There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're
    under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under
    warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor.
    However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.







    I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information
    allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from
    here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a
    good rating from you today.

    Please post a comment if you need
    additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Why is picture scrambled on my memorex dvd mvd2016


The MVD is a progressive scan DVD player if your TV is 1080i or shows interlaced images only and doesnt have the option for progressive scan this would be an issue. I would suggest trying this DVD player on another television first. Also what is the model of your television?

Another issue is if you have and HD TV and are hooking up the A/V jacks to the HD component inputs this would also provide a jumbled picture. It would be a good idea to check and make sure that the A/V cabled are inserted into the correct input.

Tip

So you just got your new HDTV and the piture isn't as good as you thought.


There are some things you need to know when setting up your HDTV.

First off, you need to use HDMI cables to connect your tv to your cable box or you will not get HD. That being said the first thing you will find is that HDMI cables are expensive. Although you can buy a really cheapo cheap one, be careful. Make sure it can support 1080p or the max resolution your TV displays at. Some of the cheaper ones can only support up to 720p.

So you hooked it up to the cable box using an good HDMI cable and you still do not have the picture you should. There are a few things you may still need too do to get 1080i out of it. Yes, I said 1080i. Even though your tv may be up too 1080p, cable and dish networks only transmit up too 1080i. But don't worry, 1080i is amazing for cable/dish.

First thing you need to make sure of is, does your cable/dish receiver support HD? If you have had the same box for a long time, it may not. You will have to call your provider to get an updated box. If you recently got cable/dish and the box is new, most likely your good to go. Also, it will most likely say on it, HDTV, 1080i or something related to HD on it.

Now you are good to go with you box because it is in fact HD compatible. Some cable boxes may need to be configured for HD. You don't need an HDTV signal if you don't have an HDTV, and not every one does, so why send the unit configured for HD. You need to go into your cable/dish settings and make sure you set the HD set up to display in 1080i.

Okay you set the box to 1080i. There still could be some setting on the TV if your not getting the best picture.

Make sure you are on an HD channel. Make sure you do not have zoom on, and that the TV is set to display an aspect ratio that is determined by the program, or auto. Not all TV's have these settings. Likewise, some tv's allow you to select the max resolution, if this is the case make sure it is set to 1080p, the max it can be.

You should at this point have an excellent picture on the HD channels. Not all channels are HD.

Now, a few other things not worthy as a new owner of an HDTV.

a standard dvd player does not play in high def. they have a max resolution of 480p. 480p is going to look really good if its the first time you watch a dvd on an HDTV, but it can be a lot better. For around starting at $45 and up, you can buy a DVD player that can upscale your dvd's to 1080p when you use HDMI and you will get amazing picture. But for around starting at anywhere from $100 to $150 and up, you can get your self a blu-ray player that will play blu-ray disks, and give you amazing beyond belief picture, and it will upscale your dvd's.

So you got a blu-ray. First thing I can say is I hope your refresh rate is at least 120hz or better. 60hz may disappoint you with a blu-ray player.

Blu-ray can play movies in their native 24 frames a second format of which they were filmed in. However, at 60hz, you will run into a problem trying to play the movie in 24fs. now I am not going to get technical with this, just to let you know, you need 120hz or better to use 24fs. You can turn it off, but you will get blur and it will not be as smooth. As well, with most players you must enable 24fs in the settings, usually by default, it is off,

So to recap:
  • Make sure your cab/dish box is HD compatible.
  • Always use HDMI cables.
  • Check settings on cable/dish box and make sure its set to 1080i.
  • don't use zoom.
  • If applicable, make sure tv settings are at max res of 1080i
  • you need an upscaling DVD player or Blu-ray player to watch your DVD's in HD.
  • Also must us HDMI.
  • Can't use 24fs if you have 60hz refresh rate, but can if 120 or better.
  • 24s is usually off by default.

How does a blu-ray movie look on a 720p TV?


It will look great. You can actually set it for 1080i. I have an older model HDTV(no HDMI) and a bluray player it looks great. TVs that are 720p will actually do 1080i. The only difference is 1080i is two pictures interlaced(the way tv has always been before digital) and 1080p is one single shot. If this helps please rate me. I do not get paid for this but I like helping people.

Memorex mvd2047 dvd player - no audio when playing dvd


Regarding the problem with the sound on your DVD player, I would suggest you to make sure the audio cables (red and white) are connected properly to the TV and player.

Also, try using a different set of cables since those ones might not be working and this is why you are not getting audio. On the Memorex remote you will find a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

    Upconversion to 1080i playback


    Hey smittybd,

    According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections.

    If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron
