Tunner? Picture whites out

After it warms up usually 2-3 hours the picture gets sharp lines in it and slowly
whites out with no visible picture. If you unplug it for a couple hours it works fine again until it warms up. then the sparkling lines appear and slowly whites
out again. Sound is not affected.
Any Ideas?

Re: Tunner? Picture whites out

Is this when you are watching a DVD, or Tape, or when watching TV using the Combo's tuner? The effect you describe is caused by the video signal losing its DC level.
Hope Ya Fix it.

My lg bd350 over heats after about an hour

Sounds like the motor is straining, pushing too hard. It should get warm but not hot. Something is stuck either in the motor or around the belts, usually a piece of shreaded tapr or dust from the tapes. Try cleaning it out with compressed air. Good luck!

I think you should take it back, cause! defective laser pickup, or the video processor, and possibly the audio/video cable, "replace to be sure"

Composite output has ghosting around the video (sort of an auro around all images on screen, including text and video). dvd menu also has this problem, so i verified that it is the output of the recorder...

Try reducing your sharpness value on either your TV or the player if applicable. Also disable any edge enhancement or "DVE" modes on the TV if applicable.

The easiest way to adjust sharpness control by the naked eye is with a calibration disc. Alternatively however, just for sharpness if you have a screen full of text and/or lines do the following;

Reduce your color/saturation value all the way down...this will make the picture black and white.

Then reduce your sharpness control until the "ghosting" effect or any additional white lines on text edges and line edges disappear.
Then you can return your color/saturation value back to normal.

Hope this helps!

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white

  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

DVD copying

There are double layer DVD's that they make which usually have about 2x the memory. check to see if your DVD recorder supports these types of DVD's. You could also just divide your media on to two sides of a double sided DVD (each side has the mirror look and you can record onto both sides)(still the same disc) or you could record on to multiple DVD's (may be inconvenient but is still an option). Also, you could reduce the recording quality just a bit so that it is not noticable when you watch it but it still uses less space on the disk. I would tell you how to do these things but I have no experience with the individual model that you have.

lines may be caused by AC pickup. if so, usually the lines move slowly up the screen, and two major sets are usually displayed. wavy lines may also be caused by a local TV station transmitting on the same output channel, either 3 or 4. If you can change the output channel, this may help. Also, try disconnecting all cable or satellite signals and see if the problem goes away. May be an adjacent channel bleeding over. If the lines go away when putting the dvd on pause, the problem is probably in the dvd power supply. Cool the unit down by unplugging it for a while and then try it. If the problem goes away then, separate the dvd player from other devices to prevent overheating

Tvs usualy have a few ways to hook them up. One is a coax cable this is the silver one in the back that you screw in a cable. The second are RCA cables these are the ones that are yellow, red and white. Yellow is always the video and white and red are for audio. If your using the coax cable your tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 you may have to force the tv to go to that channel by pushing 03 on the remote. If you are using the Rca cables then you need to change the tv to "video 1" or "video 2" this changes the tv from tunner mode to aux input mode. Most DVD players dont have a coax out so you have to use the rca plugs. Some tvs have the rca plugs on the front (video 2) and the back (video 1) or line in. Some tvs have line out also so you need to figure out wich way you have it hooked up. Do a search for the model of your tv and it should show a diagram on how to hook it up.
