Re: LCD RCA quality issue with V.Smile

No picture or sound on TV with V-Smile. Could the wires be replaced on the V-Smile?

I have an Audiovox FPE3205 that the picture doesn't hold the clarity and gets blurry and grainy. Support said that it needed to be reset, but I've done that and still the same issue

I do not want to type the answer to this problem because I do not like to be the bearer of possible bad news. This television having been manufactured around 2006 may have reached the end of its life. As years go by, the picture quality on all LCD televisions diminishes.

Ok, ok, I got that out of the way first. Now forget that I just said all of that for a moment. This television will display a 720p resolution from its component input (green, blue, red, white, red). Make sure that whatever is connected to that input is only set to display images at a 1080i or 720p resolution. A wii or a regular dvd player not a bluray should look ok on the composite/RCA input. I'm not recommending the S-Video input for anything, and of course a computer can be connected to the VGA input still.

If the television looks bad even when displaying content on that 720p input then service can be considered and boards changed if you want to put money into this television rather than purchasing another one.

We just bought a 40"

Without HD content, the TV will scale up the smaller-sized video. This means it will "stretch" the content, making it grainy or pixelated. The only way to get better quality video is to get HD service.

Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

Sharp Aquos LC-37D44U only shows B&W images from DVD & VHS source

First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place? Anyway- If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong: 1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or.. 2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.

Dvd is grainy picture

You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

RCA input suddenly changed to black and white.

Mine is doing the same thing. I have a 2 year old RCA 27" and I was told to do a "hard reset" I am trying it right now. All you have to do is unplug the power cord to the TV for 4 hours. See if that will help.
