Question about Philips 55PW9363 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

HDTV-AT&T UVERSE I had UVERSE installed yesterday and my picture is better than with charter but I still dont think it's HD quality. I'm using Red, Green, Blue cable. But when I go to select 1080 or 780 the picture becomes scrambled. I tried to switch to input 4 which is the HD input and then I get no picture, however in input 1 (CVI) I get standard drf picture.

First of all, is your blue "HD" light lit up on the front of your Uverse box?

If yes, then you're in HD

If No, you need to check your connections from Box to TV
1.Those Red-Blue-Green cables are for video only, they don't carry sound and shouldn't be connected to audio outs. Audio needs a seperate cable. Make sure your Red isn't on the audio out which is also red. Make sure your blue and green aren't switched with each other either. Check that at both ends.
2. Try an HDMI cable. It will carry audio and video together and it's one cord instead of 5.
3. What brand/model of TV is it? Is it an older projection TV? The HD tuner might be shot. The individual color tubes commonly fail after a few years.
4. Are you selecting 720p or 1080i from your TV's menu or from the Uverse menu? You'll need to set it through the Uverse box, not the TV.
5.Follow -Menu -Settings -Aspect Ratio to change to 720 or 1080. This should start an autotest which will scramble your picture for about 5 seconds, then bring you back to a menu asking you to keep settings or revert back settings. If you never see that question pop up, then your TV isn't supporting the HD, and you settings will be rolled back automatically. If the question does pop up and you can read it, select "keep settings" and press OK. Your blue HD light should come on the front of the box now.

I had the same problem. Using the standard definition (cvi) input, navigate to options->screen resolution in u-verse and get to the point where all you need to do is click "ok" to switch to HD resolution. Change the component cables to the HD input and then press ok on the remote to switch u-verse to HD resolution. I can't explain it, but it worked for me.

TV picture not clear

First we need to know a little more details about the kind of TV you have, the kind of service (Cable, Satellite or off Air).
Comparing showroom to your home is also something we need to know. Was the showroom using Cable or Satellite. Satellite will always have a better picture quality wise.
If you are using composite input for the signal path between TV and source this would not produce a High Dif picture Composite = Yellow for video, red and white for audio. If you are using Component source that will produce a HD signal cable is RED/BLUE and Green with different audio.
The best quality is using an HDMI cable, this is all in one cable and the sources is the best. One last thing, if you are using the RF *cable as source it will not give you a quality signal.

If your tv has a composite wiring inputs (5 wire red,white,yellow,blue,green) use them it will provide a better picture picture quality than the standard rca a/v cable (red,white,yellow) After you connect the composite cable from console to tv go into system/console settings/tv picture quality and adjust settings there

When I use the HD input on my mitsubishi, everything on the screen is green???

When your picture has a green shade to it when connected through component video cables(red,blue,green) that indicates that you have the red and blue switched around at one end, since you have a picture, that indicates that the green cable is hooked up correctly, if the picture color isn't corrected after you make the switch, then make sure you don't have a bad cable.(it happens more often than you think) Good luck !

No red when hooking up component cable for dlp hd tv. Only blue and green colors show on hd component input for charter hd cable box. Are there any internal adjustments that need to be made through either...

Check the red cable this is where the red comes from, you may have a bad cable, maybe use the blue or green one just to see if the red will come through, it can be the cable box or the tv or the cable itself.

it may be really simple. check at the sweetch at the end of the video cable, the end that connects to xbox. it has a sweetch for standar quiality and dh quality (standar you will use only 3 cables, hd you will use 5 cables)

and you sweetch is on standar you will have sound but not picture :)

BRAND NEW 42in. vizio 1080 LCD HD 120HZ picture not clear

the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires

NO volume

often people make the mistake of hooking their devices to the tv using more than one input.  a cable box for example may have many different types of outputs but you are only going to use one to the tv (preferrably the highest quality connection). try switching the inputs on the tv to see if you get the same picture on two different inputs.   If using s-video, you will also need a red & white RCA cable for audio.  The order of video cable quality from lowest to highest is this: Coax(screw on), Composite(yellow,red,white), S-video(Round)+(red,white), Component(video=red,green,blue), HDMI(carries HD video & sound)

Hello, I have a Sony KP-53HS0 projection Tv. I plan to attach a HD receiver to it. What kind of cable do i need? Will I need some type of adapter?

You can just use any standard component cable Red/Green/Blue doesnt have to be anything fancy, I dont really buy into monster cables being that much better than just standard quality cables from Walmart/Kmart
