Question about Toshiba 42HL167 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Picture is blurry on new Toshiba 42HL67 lcd tv

Just got this new tv about a month ago. I have a dual Dish Network receiver and dvd/vcr combo unit connected to it. The picture is just not as sharp and clear as I think it should be. Could something be connected wrong? I do not have high def, but I think the picture should still be clear and sharp. Any suggestions?

Hi suegy, the quickest thing to test is play a dvd and observe the quality of the display. if still blurry or dull, could mean something wrong with your TV. going through what causing it...could be weak signal or CCFL lamp not glowing enough or fully.

Since its only a month ago, should be still u/warranty. Check out where you bought from and avail that warranty.

Good Luck.

If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities.

Can not accept dish network


We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. Thefirst thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on. Check whattype of cable is used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you are using a CoaxCable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel forthe output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out": TuneTV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it is labeled "HomeDistribution": Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax(RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through theinputs until picture appears; Most TVs have a "TV/Video","Input", or "Source" button either on the TV or theremote that came with the TV. We want to ensure that the TV and the receiverare connected properly, please visit this link to for more information on howit should be connected: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-receiver-totv.Once we have made sure everything is connected properly, unplug receiver for 10seconds then plug it back in, this will reset the receiver. If we are still notgetting a picture connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the sameTV, using same cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If youget a picture with the other component give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474)for some additional troubleshooting. If it doesn't work with the othercomponent then replace the cable that was used.

We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valuedDISH Network customer!

Samsung 2333HD to dvd/vcr combo


Hi there,

On a DVD/VCR combo unit....the Component Output (RED, GREEN, BLUE) is exclusive to the DVD player section only (VCR can only output analogue source) and will only be able to view DVD.

To watch VCR, you will need to connect to your TV via Composite (YELLOW) cable, into the Yellow AV input on your TV. You can then tune the VCR section to match your TV's RF input (if you prefer this connection).

Good luck...
