Try this.... First, go into picture menu and reset it. Next turn contrast all the way up. Turn the sharpness all the way down. Make sure the tint is in the middle. Adjust brightnesses accordingly. If that don't work, just drop me a line and i will explain more

Best regards

Just bought a 52" Aquos TV 27000/1 newest model for 2008 my husband is putting it up and said the non HD channels don't look real good. Is there anything we can do to improve the picture on the non HD channels?

Here are the settings:

BD 1080p 24hz Output (HDMI): On (this TV can reproduce video at 48hz for accurate 2:2 pulldown)

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Vivid will make the picture look its brightest, press either Status, info or recall on the remote to see what Resolution you are receiving. If 1080i or higher,(720p is higher than 1080i) you should have a very clear and crisp picture.

What type of wall mount bracket will I need

Depending on what you want, Just make sure it is made to hold at least a 32 inch LCD TV . If you would like to tilt it, buy a tilt mount. It needs to be mounted to the studs in the wall for best support. I recommend you pre wire the cables before hanging the TV,since they will be hard to get to after the set is mounted.

I want to take take the stand off so that I may mount it on a do you do this? Is there a preferred wall mount also?

The best thing to do - is to read owner's manual first.
Normally there is 4 or more screws on the bottom middle part of rear cover that are holding stand and TV together.
Wall mount choice depend on your budget. It have to be rated for weight of your TV set. There should be 4 bigger size bolts on the back of your TV especially for wall mounting purpose. Again - owner's manual have more detailed explanations of all of the above.

Screen goes blank after 2 minutes

Your best bet is to take the back off and look if there are and bulged capacitors on the power supply first, also look for cold solder joints on the 24 volt rail that goes to the HV inverter board. If both seem to be ok then you could have a inverter transformer going bad on the inverter board. Let me know how you do>

Tryiny to put my Akai LCT3201AD TV on the wall

For a set this size, there should be at least 4 mounting holes for a wall bracket. Please note that wall mounting is an option so the holes may be covered by plastic caps to hide the holes. These holes should be in a box shape around 1 foot wide or so.

Want to wall mount tv but don't don't were to bolt.

I have my 32" Protron mounted on my wall. There are six holes on the back of the set that you attach the mount. I cant find any links to pictures but it should be pretty straight forward. You should be able to use any generic LCD wall mount, just make sure it can hold an 32" since I made the mistake thinking all wall mounts were the same. I purchased mine at Best Buy but you should be able to find a mount anywhere. You will need to fasten the mount onto the studs in your wall. Drywall by itself will not be sufficient and cannot support the weight of the TV.

The wall mount should come with everything you need, e.g., screws, brackets, etc., with the exception of the tools. FYI... it's not going to be an easy job so be patient and take your time. It's probably going to take the good portion of a day. Also, as for the holes on the back, just be careful when performing the final mount to make sure it doesn't fall. It would be wise to have someone help you.

Wall mounting emerson lc320em9 television

I don't know the model in particular, but most of these sets can be wall mounted if you have the screw holes for the mounting plate in the back of the set.

What I believe the tech was telling you would be that it is best to not wall mount the set. The reason is that we found that we have been seeing a higher failure rate from sets being wall mounted. This is because the surface of the wall reflects some heat back in the set, and thus causes it to internaly run warmer. This is also the same from running a set inside of a cabinet. The complete surface area behind the set being very close to the wall surface blocks cooler air circulation. It is best to run these sets on a stand that is out in the opened at least 1 foot away from any wall surface.

Yes your inverter is bad, I have the same problem my set is about 1 and 1/4 years old. Because Olevia makes a terrible product there inverters are attached directly on to the panel, which means they will only sell the inverter along with the panel i.e $700+ to replace + $100 dollars labor if u don't know how to fix it ur self. I am currently searching to find the manufacture that makes the inverters because olevia will not disclose that information. I believe it is darfon, if so the inverter should cost about $150-200 depending. If you dont believe you can fix it ur self ur best bet is try and sell the set for scrap take ur $100 or so dollar and buy a quality product! Oh and dont call there support they will tell 10 different things before u find out this long for seen truth!
