Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

The Picture is very washed out. Example: When the TV turns on at has dell Logo first. Where the dell logo is there are lines going above and below where the logo is. The lines going up and down are very static like. They are not solid lines and they are blue with the dell logo cause the logo is blue but for an image that is white like the "component 1" then the lines are redish. They are not solid lines, very scrambled. It appears almost like the tv is having a difficult time building the picture properly and it is bleeding... I dont know how to describe the problem any better then that, Im sorry.

Blu ray shows the "Blu ray Disc" Logo on TV screen and then just show a black creen

Hi! and welcome to Fixya!

It looks like your tv is unable to handle the output video resolution from your bluray. The reason why you do not have picture on the tv screen after the bluray disc logo appears.

You can follow the instruction below to set the video resolution on your player to its lowest resolution:

1. Using your bluray remote control, press the following buttons in order... STOP button (press and release) ....HOME button (press and release)....POP UP/MENU button ( press and release )
Note: press the buttons in order with 1 second interval. Make sure tv and bluray are ON when you try this. If first attempt nothing happens, try this again.

2. When the home menu screen appears after doing the above instruction, you can set the video resolution again manually. Follow the instruction:
Using the BD remote control press HOME button > then go to SETUP > select screen settings > then change OUTPUT VIDEO RESOLUTION to Auto > change also 24P OUT to 1080P // set the BD-ROM 24P OUTPUT to Auto

The next time you turn on the bluray player you will have picture again.

Let me know if this works!

When I turn on my nintendo wii console the mouse dose not appear on my TV screen why?

There are a few possible causes for this issue. I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

1. Disconnect the sensor bar and reconnect it.
2. Check the sensor bar settings within the wii console. This can be done by clicking on the wii logo at the bottom left of the screen. Then within the console setting click on "sensor bar". There will be 2 options. Above TV and below TV. Verify that the correct setting is chosen.
3. Try another controller.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.

Hi, I have a problem with my Dell Inspiron 1525. Whenever I type, suddenly the pointer jumps to different place. For example, I could be typing on on line 12 and all of a sudden I am typing a couple...

If you are hearing an intermittent beeping sound at the start of the computer, its an indication that there is a locked key, if not it can be within your Windows.Create another Profile/Account and check if the same thing happens.

Enter BIOS Setup. At the Dell logo press F12 --> BIOS/System Setup. If the same occurs then its possible that a certain key is locked. Run the 32-Bit Diagnostics (At the Dell logo press F12--> Diagnostics )a an Extended Diagnostics --> Custom Test then do the Keyboard test you can test your keyboard's keys one by one to identify which key is locked. If under Warranty, call Dell Tech support, replacing the keyboard will resolve the issue.

However, if already out of warranty, you can try using an Compressed Air Duster can and spray it to your keyboard's keys to be cleaned up.

Turn on JVC 32" flat screen TV and got the JVC logo then sound and no picture. Then next day, only got the logo, no sound or picture.

There is a way to reset television. I have a jvc 42inch that was just going to main logo screen and not beyond it. If i remember correctly you unplug the tv hold power button for 5 sec on tv then let go plug in and start. If that dont work unplug and then plug and hold power button on tv for 5 sec. It is 1 of those combinations. My tv worked after that. I googled my problem and a website listed that some tvs need to be reset.
