Question about Akai PT5598HD 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Interlaced comes in fuzzy & with lines

This just started a couple of months ago. It could be my HD receiver from Direct TV but I don't know. If I choose 480i, 720i, or 1080i my screen is fuzzy and I have lines. With 480i it is diagonal lines and with 720 or 1080i it is horizontal lines. 480p comes in much better but still real slight horizontal lines

Re: Interlaced comes in fuzzy & with lines

You need to check if the dvd or games are doing the same thing on different inputs. if they have the same problems you might be looking at the single board or the focus block.

I have a Sharp Aquos LC-30HV4U which is supposedly HD ready. I am a Dish Network satellite subscriber. I do not know what to do to make this HD ready set receive HD signals.

Your reciver is already set for the hd. Alls satellite programing and cable already come in hd format. You can also get any info here.

Good luck and please rate FixYa!

Ringing noise coming from my philips 30PW9110D/37

This noise is coming from the power supply.
You may want to look for a local repair shop from this website to get service if desired.
If the power supply were to be replaced, it could be done by you if you are somewhat savvy.
