Question about Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Wavy lines from video HD input

I have a 46" that I used without issue for years on the 1st floor. I recently upgraded it to an LCD, so the old girl was moved to the 3rd floor for video games. After hooking up the Playstation 3 with a AV component cord (5 plugs @ TV to 1 @ Playstation), the picture is just wavy lines.....I disconnected those 5 from the 46" and plugged them into a 19" and it works great.....it seems as though the video inputs have been compromised........the onboard dvd works, and so does the standard cable......

Hi.

There could be many reasons. But, more Often, it would be

on the Circuits Board. You need to Open the TV, unplug the

wires from Circuits Board, pull it out and check it.

More often, you would find either a Loose Solder

connection or Leaked / Bulged / Swelled capacitor. You

need to note down the part number and you could order it

online or go to your Local Electronics shop and

purchase it. Once you solder it, it would be all set.


the Procedure is the same for your Play Station, but try to connect

it, first to your new LCD TV for sure.


If the PS works on your new TV, then you do not need to open it.


One thing the PS did not work out , is the video setting, try checking

as if double-checking again .It is likely not compromised.


Connect video cable , one by one but monitor the audio if it is OK.

Regards,

palaboy

Panasonic pt-50lc13 small wavy lines


Look to see if it happens on the rear audio and video inputs--that will narrow down where the problem is.

Be aware this model was RECALLED and all original owners were supposed to have the set replaced a few years ago.

Also rule out the signal---if using a cable box connect the cable without it directly to the coax fitting---box can cause this---stranger things have happened.

MAGNAVOX 51MP392


I have a philips magnavox and had two problems that I recently fixed using kits from www.TvRepairKits.com. I can't say enough about their kits and help. Without them I would have never been able to fix my TV set myself.

The first problem I had was the TV was looking 3D. After doing some homework I found out that this is a convergence problem. I bought a kit, followed the instructions, and to my amazement fixed it myself.

After building my confidence with the 1st repair I decided to get their CRT fluid kit. This kit fixes the dull video,red video, or bright/halo looking video. If you have a magmavox set that is more than 5 years old your tv has this problem already. It happens on every set. As before I bought the kit, followed the instructions, and now my video looks factory new. Once again I wanted to say thanks to the team at Tv Repair Kits for putting together kits that the average joe can use.

Rainbow color effect appears when Samsung LCD plays Wii or DVD


Hello, I have a question which video inputs are you using for your DVD and Wii connections? The reason I ask is because this sounds like video distortion cuased by noise. If possible can you send a picture of the screen when it has this problem and send which video ports are being used? If it is noise in the video you may have a saw filter problem, or a decoupling issue. In any event I'll know more once you send those pictures and which inputs you are using for your DVD and Wii.
