Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Power surge last week (had surge protector on). Now, needs channel set up everytime I turn it on and screen starts out sharp then flashes blurry, same on each channel -switch channel sharp for 1 second, then blurry. Also, press PIP or Freezae and screen compresses 1/2 size and concave sides; distorted. Must unplug to return to normal. Also, sharpness adjustment doesn't work or save and screen aspect (16:9) setting is grayed-out in menu setup. Is this a crd that needs to be replaced, or what is the problem? Thanks.

Why won't it start?


The computer is not producing a video signal.
The varistors in the surge protector are probably burned out, or there is some other problem in the surge protector.
The monitor is very likely OK.

When I turn on the TV, the picture is fuzzy. After five minutes, the picture is clear but any words are out of focus even the menu for adjustments is out of focus. The convergence for red is clear but...


Hi,

Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

Best regards.

My picture has several lines going through the screen, some of them are green and the picture is blurry.


View the television on more than one input to make sure that there are lines going through the picture and that the picture is blurry on every input.

If this problem is occurring on every input try an industry initialization/factory reset. You can call 877-332-7867 even now to get a case file started and be walked through one.

You are going to have to be able to unplug the television or switch off the surge protector it is connected to with your foot, and hold down the side panel buttons on the television itself as advised while plugging the television set back in or switching the surge protector back on with your foot at the same time so be prepared.

I have a Mitsubishi projection model WS-B55 that is plugged into a surge protector. The power went off for about an hour or an hour and a half this morning, and the power light is flashing. I called...


First, to answer your last question, not all power outages and subsequent surges are created equally nor are all surge protectors. Also, after a power outage where the subsequent surge is so strong that it got past your surge protector and knocks out your TV and it's never done that before... REPLACE YOUR SURGE PROTECTOR.
However, that being said, in my experience it is unlikely that the TV is going to require a technician. Understand that the person that you spoke with in tech Support is not a technician and is reading off of a list of troubleshooting pages that are more extensive then what's in the manual. What the technician is probably not aware of is that your TV, like most home electronics, has a safety failsafe that requires the device to be separated from power completely before doing a system reset
First, after pressing the button it's supposed to flash for about a minute anyway but I'm assuming that after it's done pressing that the TV is still not firing up.
Unplug the TV, let it sit for an hour, plug it back in (to the wall, not the suspect surge protector). If the light is still flashing, press the reset button again and wait for it to stop flashing and attempt to turn it on again. If it doesn't work, unplug the TV, follow the same steps however, let it sit for 24 hours before plugging it back in. That length of time is not common but some sets do require it.
If none of this works, then I would say that it's time to call a technician.

Unplug TV set from the outlet, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, select right input with your remote if you using cable box or Punch the channel that you want to watch if you have cable service connected directly to the TV.

Computer power won't turn on


First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.

NOISE IN CENTER CHANNEL --ONLY


You probably have a bad capacitor on your affected channel. Just a guess. Also ensure you do not have a grounded input being amplified to that channel.
