Degraded Signal quality

Sir:

Have a GoVideo DVD player, & using RG6 coax, the signal is degraded, causing the picture to be fuzzy.

When I bypass the DVD player, the picture is clear, so the signal strength is good.

Is Govideo out of business, & can you help me?

Sincerely,

Randall Lindsey

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (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.
    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. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  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.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

PPM4253Q fuzzy picture


check to see if using a DVD etc to one of the rear inputs you have the same problem--if so it is the set---if not and connected via the coax fitting it may be a loose cable, a defective box, etc feeding the signal.

Using a rear input could bypass this problem if it is not working.

I have a pincushion problem on the screen , what causes this and how can it be fix?


Not sure what a pincushion problem is? If you mean it pixalates and/or seizes up, runs, you may need to re-peak the dish signal by repointing it, reinstall the dish, if trees or something else is partly blocking signal to the dish. Some transponders on the satellites are much weaker than others. Check signal on the transponder you have the most problems, go to install satellite to check signal. Even rain and snow on the dish or in the air can degrade the picture. Another problem can be caused by used old cable tv wire to bring signal in for the dish. Newer receivers require much more bandwidth that requires good quality RG6 cable coax wire. Even roosting birds can cause problems.. Make sure there is no snow on the dish.

We live in ireland and we bought a dvd on amazon but it says ntsc, we have dvd player and xbox, help


NTSC, known to us as Never Twice the Same Colour due to the way the picture is made up will not play on a PAL player. The NTSC format uses a 60Hz frame rate at 525 lines resolution and 15KHz line speed and the UK system is PAL usind a 50Hz frame rate and 16.250 KHz line speed. Pity as some DVD players will play NTSC Movies in "Simple PAL" but somewhat degraded picture and sound quality.
Hope this clarifies your situation.

Are you truly free? If so, then answer the


Hello. Your digital TV is all set up to recieve the digital signal that is now the standard signal coming into your home. The old analog signal is history. If you still want to use your VHS/DVD recorder you will have to get a signal conversion box, at your local walmart or radio shack. This will take the new digital signal and convert it so your old analog VHS/DVD can process it properly. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful....and free. thanks. Joe

Picture problems


This could be an unshielded cable problem. Also magnetisam from speaker(s)(i.e. subwoofer) could affect signal from satelite antenna, or could affect satelite receiver if it's near.
