Open Question

Picture is fuzzy on some channels and very clear

Picture is fuzzy on some (local) channels and very clear on others. I did reset and still fuzzy - is there a hard reset to take back to factory set up? I even changed the cable. This is a kitchen TV with cable (no box) just cable.

SOURCE: HDTV has fuzzy picture

Greetings blueberrie,

Many times the cables that you are using can contribute to picture quality. You will want to utilize the best connection possible, in most cases HDMI or component cables. Also, you may want to invest in a line filter, sometimes known as a surge protector. Many of these items are able to control the inconsistencies in power your unit receives, giving you clean power, which will influence picture quality.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: samsung tv turning off by itself

I had a similar problem where my 61" Samsung DLP was turning itself off very frequently I had resolved to try replacing the bulb. I called a local TV repair place to see if they had my buld in stock. The guy I spoke to actually told me how to fix my problem! There is a little blue switch behind the bulb access door. The inside of the door has a little piece that presses the switch down. The switch is supposed to work correctly weather the switch is in the up or down position but samsung forgot to take expansion from heat into account. If the switch is held in the upper position by the door and the plastic expands to a certain point, it triggers the set to shut off. This does not occur of the switch is held in the lower position. What you need to do is take the access door off and put it back on by sliding it into position from above. That will hold the switch in the down position, eliminating the problem. My set has not **** itself off ever since.

Fuzzy picture


Sounds like an AGC [Automatic Gain Control] problem with its video IF stage circuit. Contact any service technician, or service center. This is not a user repairable fault.

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

The picture isn't very clear. What can I do?


If some channels are good but others are poor it is not the set. These sets are all much more critical for signal being good than the older sets--they will show noise etc a old set would not even show.

A dead give away is if DVD or Blu Ray etc looks great but TV channels do not---it is not the set.

Amp transmitting fuzzy picture


It could be dirty contacts, corroded connectors inside, or dirty from atmospheric pollution or even dust.

Other degradation may result from a solder joint developing corrosion now, or a diode getting leaky.

It is repairable, but it is a time investment.

Analog channels are fuzzy but the digital channels are clear


So what's wrong??? Analog signals that may seem pretty good on an old CRT would seem terrible on the newer TVs because all the flaws show up much sharper. Thank goodness for digital signals. With digital signals, unlike analog signals, you either get a good clear picture or no picture at all.

Hi,

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 is fuzzy at the lower left of the screen. Also, the DVD picture is off center. How can I adjust or reset both?


Hello,
This indicates an Automatic Gain Control (AGC) problem often caused by a dried up capacitor. You will probably need a schematic to go much further. This could be a problem in the tuner, IF, or video amplifiers.

The following assumes you are sure the signal source is strong - try a VCR or other local one (channel 3/4, not the RCA jacks).

Most of the time the range of AGC is from 1 to 7 volts. If you can get a decent snow free picture with an external AGC source, then the tuner is probably OK.

One channel fuzzy


Tis is an ongoing problem I seen increase alot over the past few months. From what I can gather, all the channels being broadcast over going from the analog to digital, there's no big suprise to anyone. However, the change from analog to digital is changing at a faster rate, so when you look at the TV some channels will be fine and others will have grey lines, fuzzy picture. The only solution-you need a TV with some kind of digital tuner. On the TV itself if the (TV has one) it will say "SD" or "ED" which stands for standard digital or enhanced digital.

Poor screen resolution and unable to get channel guide.


The channel guide is a service just like closed caption. Rumer has it that it's not going to be around for much longer. The only fix is to unplug set ..wait awhile till memory loss occurs...plug back up and do a setup. Nothing in the TV will cause partial guide. Weak signal could and cause fuzzy picture too. Complain to cable company. But brightness problem is something else.
