Screen burn I think there is actually screen burn from the guide channel of my satellite box because it seems to line up with the boxes and the top is unaffected. If this is screen burn is there a way to repair the screen?

You may lessen it a bit over time by keeping the guide channel off as much as possible, but it may never completely go away. I've seen the same thing happen with stock channels.

Turn on goes blue then turns off


The most common reason for a TV to display a blue screen with no picture is because the source device has not been set to the proper mode.

If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, ensure that it is turned on and set to an active station. If the set-top box is connected to the television using a coaxial cable, then the television should be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If you have are using a VCR that is turned on, but not playing a tape and not tuned to a receivable channel, then a blue screen will be displayed on the TV. To resolve this, turn off the VCR or tune it to a receivable channel. If a cable or satellite set-top box is connected to the VCR using a coaxial cable, then the VCR should normally be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If the blue screen is not because of a connected VCR or set-top box, the TV may require service.

Digital Channels??


Direct from the Hitachi website - "Integrated HDTV Tuners: Hitachi's new top-of-the-line XWX series features built-in ATSC terrestrial and cable HDTV tuners to provide integrated high resolution, high-definition signal decoding." You will need a seperate HDTV tuner if you do not have cable or satellite and want to watch off-air High Definition channels.

Recently installed two Philco TB100HH9 Converter boxes. Both worked well at first then both lost a major local TV station within days and cannot reprogram it into the box. Have two other TV's without a...


I just had a similar problem with this box - For the first month or two, I got the local NBC affiliate (KING-5 in Seattle) just fine on 5.1, then, after fiddling with my antenna setup, I lost it completely - NOTHING I could do would get it back. I tried a bunch of stuff - Multiple types of antenna, adding an antenna amp box, a handful of "homebrew" antennas - Nada. Yet all my other channels came in fine (although a couple were right on the edge - This box seems to need a "17" or higher on the signal strength - Some of my channels were reading in the 15-18 range, and suffering the "blockies" and sound dropout)

After hitting TVfool.com, found out that the KING digital signal is actually broadcasting on channel 48. Punched in 48.1, and there it was, clear as a bell, using nothing but a "wick" antenna (Basically, strip 4-1/4 inches of the outer braid off one end of a piece of co-ax cable, leaving the center wire alone, then plug the other end into the box) getting me a 23 signal strength. But a second or two later, the box is displaying "5.1" - Weirdness...

Reconnected a near top-of-the-line Winegard Yagi/Log-periodic antenna - VERY directional, and has some gain all by itself - and the signal jumped above 50.

Still couldn't "channel-up/channel-down" or punch in "5.1" to tune it, though - Channel 5.x was a "dead zone" as far as the box was concerned.

Re-did the "autoscan", and now, it's back to normal - I can channel-up/channel-down to it at 5.1, or I can punch it in as 5.1, or I can punch it in as 48.1, and it's all good.

So, try re-doing the auto-scan. Worked for me...

I cant get past the blue screen that appears when turn my television on


Make sure your cable or satellite box is turned ON before you try this:

If you have a cable box or satellite box plugged to this television with a regular cable wire, press 0-3 on your Philips remote (unless you have a dual tuner system - in which case, you will have to press Ch + on the Philips remote until you find the right channel).

If you have any other connection, press the AV+ or SOURCE button on the Philips until you see your cable or satellite box.

This is the best I can tell you without knowing your exact model # of TV.

Rca 61130 rear projection tv has pink haze


Try adjusting your Red screen control down just a little. This is usually a sign of the red crt developing a short. Often just turning the Red drive down just a bit will make the retrace lines disappear if not you will eventually need a new CRT or repairs in the red drive circuitry. Hope this helps.

Set top box and remote control


I have the same problem. When I move the 8300HDC away from the TV, or power off the TV, the remote responds. There seems to be some kind of RF interference, which makes no sense since the TV shouldn't emit RF, and the the box should be using IR only for remote input. My TV is a 46" LCD Samsung. Try turning off the TV and see if the 8300HDC responds to powering on and off with the remote.
