Get the professional, although this won't be an expensive fix... You likely have one or more caps in the vertical circuit that are going bad... A cap acts like a battery in a circuit taking on voltage and releasing it at an even rate. When they go bad their ESR (equivilent series resistance) rises and the cap takes longer to reach it's op temp and work properly...
A tech with an ESR meter will easily find and repair this one...
no other issues only a minor problem..

    Also try this options ..



  • Press the ‘menu’ button on the Remote Control
  • Select ‘INSTALLATION’
  • Select ‘CONNECTIONS’
  • Select HDMI 1, 2 or 3 depending on the input you have connected the PC
  • Select ‘PC’



  • But if your product is still under warranty, better contact your dealer and get the issue fixed

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Hi,

Is it a Duplicate Question....Wonder why?

Same reply :0


This is an internal Fault. Diagnosis is required to make sure whether it is Failed T Con Board or Light Engine. I do not think that it would really help by changing the TV settings. This was a Common Problem with Old LCD's where you got Blurry Spots specially while Playing Real Fast Movies or Games. On Few Occasions, it as Corrupted Firmware.

As i cannot see the Video or Screen from here, more likely what i could guess it is an Internal Fault as you have tried using HDMI, Use different Setting Combination's and you got the same Picture Quality with DVD as well.

So, what i could suggest, get back to the Seller and Lodge an Official Complain and get it Replaced. There is no point in Opening and TV and Inspecting it and Replacing Components when it was less than a month ago.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

BRAND NEW 42in. vizio 1080 LCD HD 120HZ picture not clear


the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!

If the LCD only has coax, it will never display a HD picture quality. However, the Comcast HD Box will still display a picture using the coax connection. So, you could watch any HD channel, but the picture quality will not be high definition.
