    Hey user who has the same problem have you fixed it yet or tried it just wondering I haven't got around to it yet and was wondering if yours worked when you fixed it thanks. How hard is it to desolder and solder the part back on could i mess it up easily shoudl I pay a tech to solder it for me. I haven't solder anything since i use to work on my car radio and speakers. I am kind of wary of messing up the board or something lol. Then having to buy that whole part.

Sounds like a "filter capacitor" in your power supply. This is probably the largest capacitor on the main board and should be near where the power cord enters into the tv. A capacitor is round and tall, sort of like a miniature cattle farmers grain bin. Take it out and order a new one. You will need to write down two things: the voltage rating and the number of microfarads denoted by the symbol "u". For example, a "2500u at 250 volts. It will have two pins soldered into the board. Desolder, remove, and replace and resolder. Keever

    Call a local tv repair shop and they can tell you the name and number of a local electronics parts store, or some of them will sell you the part themselves. It should cost only $2 to $10, but don't forget, I am not 100% certain that this is your problem,but if it were my set, this would be the first thing I would try. Keep me posted. Hope you get it fixed. Keever

When I turn on the TV, the picture is fuzzy. After five minutes, the picture is clear but any words are out of focus even the menu for adjustments is out of focus. The convergence for red is clear but...


Hi,

Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

Best regards.

Tv picture blurry, not clear


The LXI or Sears brand used philips TV's. These sets are known for bad coolant fluid. In between the picture tube and their lenses is a layer of clear coolant. Over time the coolant breaks down and causes the picture to become blurry. This can be a complicated repair involving removal of the picture tubes and lenses. Have a repair shop check it for you. Thanks for using fixya.

WD-52525 screen is jumping all around with wavy horizontal lines etc.


Good Day;

Keep talking to the factory, it is their product. Best Buy won't replace unless it is deemed not repairable and/or terms of the contract. You purchased the extra warranty because you most have felt that the TV might break down. Well, it did, now use the contract to repair your TV.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
