Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I have had a Panasonic PT-47WX53 rear projection HDTV for about four years now, and all has seemed fine up until this past week when I got a PS3 for Christmas. I only have DVI for a digital input on the TV. I had bought a $100 DVI-to-DVI cable about a year or so ago, to use with a Hi-Def cable-box at the time. However, my cable-service provider told me that they had not enabled the use of that output on their boxes, but I kept the cable anyhow in the hopes that that would change. It didn't.
Anyhow, somewhere in between then and now I also picked up a $20 DVI to HDMI adapter end for my expensive cable, to update it (as everything is now all HDMI, including the PS3) so I wouldn't simply LOSE the hundred bucks I had invested in it.
So when I got the PS3 last week, I set all the settings on both it and the TV (correctly, because I get picture and sound) for using the digital DVI cable with the HDMI adapter.
The problem is, after trying out a few Blu-Ray movies, I noticed a few horizontal "ghost" bars scrolling up my screen. They are not as noticeable when there is a bright image pictured on the screen (which is probably why I did not see them at first) but whenever the screen is predominantly darker, these bars are obnoxiously present. I checked some of the other inputs on the TV (antenna, component, etc.) and I DO notice a similar but far more faint image that I would almost never have seen if I had not been looking for it.
My question is threefold:
1. Is this a form of electromagnetic interference?
2. If not, then what is it?
3. How do I fix it (cuz it's bugging the crap out of me)?
i have a mitsu 53-2 inch rear projection hdtv and i have had it for three years and i had noticed the other day the exact same thing you were describing i came online to see what i could find and here it is not the answer but the problem i dont think it has to do with the ps3 but i wonder what it from and how to fix it it is driving me crazy i did have the dvi hooked up but not anymore help please
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
