Ge antenna 24700

Hi Patrick,
A fuzzy signal on a plasma TV is not common anymore as with the lack of analog TV transmission the signal is either there or it is not.
A amplified HD TV antenna is not always a solution and often times to get a good HD type reception a good outside antenna is required. I have two $100 antennas high up on my roof and still you can get a loss of data stream when the weather is bad. I also use distribution amplifiers to feed several TV's
In the case that the picture is fuzzy but still there it might be a resolution setting that is wrong so hit the menu button on the remote and see if that display is clear- if it is then try setting a different resolution for the input that you are getting fuzzy signal on.

Poor picture and colour quality on hd through hd box red is pink fuzzy hd picture

You need to check the resolution of your TV thru your input setting, try to check which will give better picture quality between 1080 or 720 settings. Also secure that your input setting as either HDMI 1 or 2 or 3, you can use the original remote and change setting by pressing input in cycle.

HDTV has fuzzy picture

Greetings blueberrie,

Many times the cables that you are using can contribute to picture quality. You will want to utilize the best connection possible, in most cases HDMI or component cables. Also, you may want to invest in a line filter, sometimes known as a surge protector. Many of these items are able to control the inconsistencies in power your unit receives, giving you clean power, which will influence picture quality.

I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Need settings because of rubbish picture

There is no right or wrong setting for the TV, but I find the following give about the best results:

  • Contrast - 65 maximum
  • Sharpness - 2 maximum
If these are set any higher, the picture becomes very grainy, particularly around defined shapes.

  • Contrast + - OFF
  • NR - ON (If applicable)
These settings will need to be changed for each of the following:
HDMI 1& 2
  • EXT 1, 2 & 3
  • Analogue tuner
  • Digital tuner
The problem you describe, is usually with a satellite or cable box.

Unfortunately, there's nothing much you can do about the dead pixels, but the settings may make them less obvious.
