Question about Mitsubishi WD-62725 62" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

No image on screen

For no apparent cause I get a small checkerboard pattern on the TV. No TV image, no menus, nothing but this pattern which degrades into hazy colored horizontal lines in broad vertical columns. Lamp and status lights are off. No response from a reset. Performed self diagnostic test but I cannot see a result as the screen shows no image. I can turn the TV off and on. I disconnected all components and ran the cable directly in and it did not help. We have had no surges or storms in the last 24 hours and the set is on a surge suppressor. Any ideas?

Your set has a defective FMT (Formatter) board. If you are looking at the back of your set it is a board inside the metal housing on the left. It is difficult to get too but if you can or are experienced in electronics there are a handful of bad capacitors on this board. You could also replace the board this would take care of your problem.

    The capacitors that have actually went bad to be specific are C8F26 and C8F29 they are 1uFD @ 25 volts. Or once again the whole board can be replaced part # 930B924002.



    Thanks Josh

ATI x600 displaying checkerboard pattern when playing games


Sounds like specific overheating problems that only affect certain game engines or certain functions in them or is may be memory leak that only happens when computer has been running programs for a period of time.

No One Lives Forever uses Lithtech 2.0: Talon engine, however it was later revised to Lithtech 2.2 whose fixes were included in the latest NOLF patch. Make sure you have the latest patch for NOLF.

Freedom Force uses NetImmerse engine.
If possible try if you have same issues with another games with old NetImmerse engine. See list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamebryo#NetImmerse_games

Far Cry uses CryENGINE. Far Cry was actually developed by Crytek as a technology demo for Nvidia display adapters and when the company saw its potential, it was turned into a game. As a conclusion I would say this game is very likely optimized for Nvidia display adapters and issues may be because of ATI display adapter drivers.

If nothing else helps try somewhere with nVidia. ATI has a lot of issues with old games released before or near year 2000, because of its drivers and they do not seem to correct driver issues on old games. When looking nVidia driver release notes you find more often game specific corrections or maybe they just document them better.

Sorry to tell you this but you have a bad FMT board which is not available. When this board goes out it will display a checkerboard pattern on the screen, or it may not even turn on the timer light will just keep flashing.

Samsung tv


Hey tj1217,

The most common problem that may occur when you connect a video game console to a TV (especially front and rear-projection models) is a condition that is often called "image burn" or "image retention." This typically happens if the same image is left on the screen for a prolonged period of time, like when playing a video game that has many stationary images or if the game is left on pause for an extended period. In some cases, this may even be caused by test patterns, on-screen programming menus, or picture-in-picture boxes.

Before connecting your Nintendo Wii, I would first suggest checking the owner's manual for the TV itself to see if Samsung has any warnings or disclaimers against doing so. If you are unable to find your owner's manual or are unsure of what to do next, you may always contact Samsung directly for more information.

Should you choose to connect the Wii based on the manufacturer's suggestions/warnings, keep in mind that you can usually avoid issues like image burn by taking simple precautions such as turning the TV off when taking a break. The less time that the same images (or backgrounds) are displayed on the screen, the lower the risk is of image burn occurring.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Checkerboard display.


checkboard pattern is generated internally by the light or optical engine.. when the signal is blocked from the signal board. the optic engine generates these test patterns. rolling piture also indicates a signal board problems.
