Question about Sylvania LC370SL8 37 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Picture quality is terrible...not sharp and crystal clear

This is a brand new TV. The picture is not sharp and clear on any channel. We purchased the new "gold" cables and that helped only a little. Fiddling around with the settings options doesn't help at all. It's almost as if there is a film over everything. Also, the top and bottom of the picture is cut off.... We are totally unhappy with this TV...PLEASE HELP.

Set the aspect ratio to 16:9 and the top and bottom of the picture will reurn. Promise.
Try adjusting your contrast to help the filmy looking picture.

Hello! I have a Sharp Liquid Crystal TV (37" display) and my menu options, specially the picture menu, is fixed. can you help me "unlock" it? Model # LC-37G4U

If the AVC System is switched on but it does not appear to be operating correctly, it may need resetting. In this case, press RESET, shown in the diagram, lightly with the end of a ballpoint pen or other pointed object. This will reset the System as shown below. • AV MODE resets to STANDARD • TV channel returns to initial channel setting (Air:2ch, Cable:1 or 2ch) • Twin picture resets to normal • Audio setting initializes • Dolby virtual resets to Off • Image position initializes

I have a 1080 with 120 and my picture is not clear. If it's not a hd channel it really is terrible and if it is hd channel it still is not in full focus. The picture is not sharp. I am really disappointed...

I am assuming your set is new. Ask for it to be serviced under warranty. This sounds like your set is defective for some reason.
LCD TV sets are known for their exceptional sharpness and performance when having a good quality signal source, and especially with an HD programs.

TV channel shows up behind the picture while watching dvds!

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

Picture is blurry on new Toshiba 42HL67 lcd tv

Hi suegy, the quickest thing to test is play a dvd and observe the quality of the display. if still blurry or dull, could mean something wrong with your TV. going through what causing it...could be weak signal or CCFL lamp not glowing enough or fully.

Since its only a month ago, should be still u/warranty. Check out where you bought from and avail that warranty.

Good Luck.
