Bad picture on PS2

Hi I have the same TV as this but it is a different model (LE26R73BD). The picture quality on normal TV (just useing the built in freeview) is ok but real life images are slighty blurred but cartoons or CG movies are alot clearer I live in a poor signal area and I think the ariel may need looking at so I need to use a signal booster some people have told me this may be the reason for that I have also found some sites that tell you how to calibrate it to get the best picture quality but i have yet to try this. The main problem I have is when I use the it for playing games on the Playstation 2 the picture is really bad things are very blurred and straight lines are jagged I am just useing the normal cable from PS2 to TV and the 3 jack plugs are going into a scart converter so they can plug in one of the scart ports do you know of why this is or anyway I can improve the picture. I hope I explained that ok and hope you can help. Cheers Dan I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY TV WHILE PLAYING PS2 GAMES,THE PICTURE QUALITY SEEMS TO GET A LOT WORSER COMPARED TO PLAYING THE SAME GAME ON A DIFFERENT TV. BY THE WAY I HAVE A SAMSUNG LCD TV (LE37S7BD) I WOULD APPRECIATE SOME HELP THANKS..

SOURCE: Flickering tv screen when playing playstation games.

I don't think it's a configuration problem at all. I do think that the set is not adjusting to the correct format. Most Stores have 30 day return policy. If it's over 30 days then they may not take it back. If you bought it online, then, the return may be difficult. If the return is not possible, then, contact Toshiba online and find a local Toshiba authorized servicer in your area. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Best Picture Quality

The set may not be at fault. If you are on cable some channels are still in anolog and some are digital. if you are on a nolog channel the picture will look preaty bad compared to the digital ones.

SOURCE: I was given a technika

First of you have to check the Atenna connection in the rare of your tv. Check for any loose contact on the connection of the wire to the pin. may be its the cause for showing signal as 0%. you can confirm the same by connecting the tv at the place where you doughters tv is connected. If there you get the picture then there is some thing wrong with the atenna connection.

If want information how to tune your tv then need information like BRAND and MODEL NUMBER of you TV.

I was trying to connect my ps2 with Panasonic vieara tv but picther is in black and white and no sound

A black and white picture suggests you are trying to use a composite video input but the TV may be NTSC format while your game is PAL, or the other way round. Use a game with the correct format or use the separate RED, GREEN & BLUE inputs (may require a different type of lead).

Where can i find a flat screen tv .replacement screen for a sanyo 42" model 42849-05 new or used.

This is a mistake more than you realize. Screen versions and models are different and quality varies. The QC can be different as well depending on the production lot. You may replace the unit but have an immediate failure or bad quality.

Plug tv in and comes on ok but picture resolution apears very slow

There are several possibilities here.

If the picture is very dark and blotchy you may have a bad X-MAIN (ZSUS) board.

It can also be the Y-Main board, but less likely, it usually fails in a different way.

Here are a few useful repairs for your TV we offer:

(Basically just a search of the TV model at the site to see what it comes up with)

Hope it helps!

There is no sound coming through on HD channels, it has been working fine with no problems but woke up yesterday morning and it no longer works. we can watch tv with sound through the normal scart but...

What TV model is it?
You should begin by unpluging the TV from the mains and have the TV unpluged for at least 3 minutes, if that does not work then you need to factory reset the TV, but note that you will loose all of your previous settings on the TV.
I hope this solve your problem.

Hitachi TV - no signal on DTV since switchover

Hi It sounds like you need to re-tune your DVB-Tuner on your TV, NOT the old analogue one, it'll be in settings or setup, or installation and use the "First Time Install" option, because it clears all old channels and loads all fresh new ones! hope this helps!

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality

Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!

  1. Check the cables and connections: Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degradation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
  2. Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal. For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away. If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and . If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem.

  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture: Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

Rolling picture

Try the free view and see if the box is bad, then if it still does the sane thing, I bet theres a bad connection on the driver IC board, on a connecting ribbon cable, or a bad drive ic. These are things that a user should not attempt to repai, as there are no user replaceable parts inside this set and should be serviced by a train tech. Good Luck
