Question about Zenith C27V36 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture flashing the hd on this hdtv doesnt seem to work. had this tv a few years (was free) and only used cable. i recently hooked up my ps3 via dvi and did all the adjustments. every combination of resolutions dont work. the one that does for the ps3 is 480i. i hooked up a dvd player via component cable and same result. i ccant find any other adjustments. is there something im missing or does it need service? generally what would it cost? there wasnt any reports of problems with the previous owner and i cannot find anything on this. thanks

    the source adjusments are fine. the ps3 adjustments are the same as the tv im using now. no issues. same with the dvd player. especially the dvd player, all you have to do is plug and play but the pic still flashes

If it is an older "hd" tv it is probably 'hd ready.' Check for adjustments on your source. The tv will most likely only display the highest resolution it is given.

When using PS3 on RCA D52W19 TV, the screen does not fit ( it is zoomed and off-center) in 1080i resolution.

Have you tried to toggle "format" or "screen size"? On those sets non HD and HD settings could be adjusted separately. Try that, first. If no luck, try similar settings on PS3. I bet, you will be able to match screen format there, as well. To me it looks, like picture formats are mismatched. Also: try to use "component" cables, instead of DVI adapter cable, if nothing works.
good luck,

I would suggest to leave your directtv hd/dvr box connected the way It is.
The HD Colorstream 1input on your TV should work just fine.
This TV does not have an HDMI input but you can buy an adapter and connect to DVI/HDCP IN and that might be able to get 1080i video resolution on your TV.

Samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever

ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.

Phantom horizontal upward-scrolling lines... from a PS3 with HDMI to DVI

Everything works better on component, I know the salesman at the store says its better, but its not....I tell customers all the time (I could hook up three tvs side by side..HDMI-DVI-Component and the human eye cannot tell the difference) The reason the DVI and Hdmi were created was for copy guard encription....Although the component is an analog signal, it goes to a A/D conversion..........But this is just my insane opinion...Good Luck

What do i need to got sound out of my hdtv?im using a hdmi to dvi cable.

if you have no optional external speaker on the ps3 you may have an earphone socket which can be connected to your tv's pc sound input via a 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack plugs.
