Image has shifted to the left

I am using a cable cardand have no problem getting a perfect picture with my High Def stations.... but every other station (including viewing digital pictures from an SD card) have the images shifted about 6 inches to the left. The Channel display box doesn't shift and is always visible in the upper left corner, but the broadcast image is shifted left. The aspect button does not resolve this problem

No picture on Samsung HP-R5052


Just a couple of things to try:
You say you tried another cable box and a roku. Are you using the same cables? Are you using hdmi, component or coax cables? Could be a bad wire. True high def tv 1080 requires an hdmi cable for the best picture. The next best choice is the component cable. This is a triple cable with red, green, & blue and provides 720 resolution. The least quality is the coax wire which will only provide low def standard quality picture. Sometimes people hook up 1, 2, or all 3 of these choices not knowing what it all means. If thats the case with your tv it may just be a matter of selecting the correct input on your tv with your remote. On your samsung remote there should be a button for input. Try pushing that button and make sure it's set to hdmi or component, whichever your using. If none of this, is it possible the plasma tv itself is defective?

Our pitchure is not bright or clear as was in store


This actually common I worked in electronics for 13 years. Did they tell you that it has to be hooked up to an High Definition source. A digital cable or Sattelite reciever does not mean its HD also using Coaxle cableor composite(yellow,red,white) will not produce a good picture. You need HDMI or Component(RED,Blue,Green for video and red white for audio) to get a high def pic. Also not all station are broadcast in high def. One other thing is even if you have a High Def reciever you need to go into the menu of the reciever where it says display and and make sure its set for 1080i or maybe 1080p(most dont have this option yet) If you are using a normal DVD player and use the yellow red and white once again picture will be poor. Need to use Component or hdmi and again with component you need to set DVD to either 480p and if its upconvert to 1080p

No picture but have sound


Make sure your not trying to watch a high def channel, you will get sound but no picture if tuned to a high def channel on a non high def input or cable box. Try a vcr or dvd player connected to the unit to varify the picture tube has not gone out.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Okay - it is a high def 720p but you have to use the HDMI inputs for High Definition... also, using the LCD as a computer monitor the best setting is 1280 x 768 - standard p&p monitor driver for Win XP or Vista (or Win 7 Beta). The HDMI slots are on the left side and are small rectangular slots about 1" long.

Picture format



The HD reciever shouldn't be the problem.

If you recieve an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image will be displayed at that ratio on your HDTV unless you specify otherwise. To do so go to your TV's Setup screen

setup
Choose picture formats
select smooth wide as your default

***Some digital (ATSC format) stations may transmit 4:3 images in a way that will not allow expansion. You will be unable to adjust the picture format.

Hope this helps!!!

Full screen view


in order to get the full HD experience you should be using HDMI cables. if you're using the white/red/yellow cables then your HD channels will not broadcast in full HD and you'll be stuck with the annoying black things around your screen

NON- Hi Def channels loose thier blue? color....picture is all green


Some CATV hi-def receivers are known to have issues keeping up with the datastream. Symptoms from the picture going solid black to other unpredictable video have been seen. Ask your CATV provider if they can switch your brand to another manufacturer. If your cable box has component video jacks in addition to HDMI, try that too. Some boxes will output RGB perfectly but bomb out with HDMI.

IQB64W10W high-def problem


Your problem sounds like the digital board and probably was what the repair people said. I would suggest telling them about Tri-State Module, Inc in Evansville, IN. 800.203.7484. They have a good selection of modules for about any set and most are under $150.00 with the average being $100. They rebuild boards and all boards carry a 12 month warranty. You can also access them at www.tristatemodule.com. If they can't help try PTS in Bloomington Indiana. I use them for alot of replacement modules. Same deal as tristate. www.ptscorp.com
