Question about Televison & Video

We have an old TVwhose picture cuts out every 5mins or so

We have an old TV (JVC not a Plasma or LCD) -maybe 9 years old. At regular intervals (every 5mins say) the picture of the channel we are watching (whether real time of sky box) just cuts out for 2 or 3 seconds - in that time it flashes onto the picture of another channel and flashes back to the programme we are watching.
Is it likely to be the TV tube/TV or is it more a connection problem. The other TV in the house is fine.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

Plasma -vs- LCD? Pros and Cons


If you're looking into a new TV purchase these days, you have only a few options… Plasma and LCD are major hitters. What follows is this professional’s opinion; you must ultimately do the research yourself.


Plasma TVs
Pros: Exceptional color reproduction. Our eyes have become accustom to viewing TVs with Phosphorus displays. As with TVs of old, Plasma TVs also use Phosphorus to create the beautiful colors our eyes crave. The viewing angle (side to side) and refresh rate (rate at which the image is refreshed) of a Plasma product shines above most other product types. Plasma TVs also have a glass protection screen in front of the panel which can help protect the panel from impact. Prices have fallen recently and have made the Plasma TV a very affordable purchase.

Cons: Energy usage. Using a Plasma TV has been likened to 'leaving the refrigerator door open'. Reliability and longevity are also a factor to consider. Over time, the Plasma panel becomes more sensitive; “Sparkles” or misfiring pixels are common. The Plasma uses many high power components; which, due to failure, have given it a less than reliable stigma. Image retention and image burn are quick to occur. Realistically, 5-7 years of life.


LCD TVs
Pros: Light weight and bright picture. Color reproduction has improved by leaps and bounds over the recent years. Some products available do rival the Plasma products in picture quality and reproduction. Cost cuts have also brought the LCD into the price range of many. Energy usage is typically less than that of the Plasma. Image retention is not a major concern for this product. Less parts than a Plasma = Less failure. LCD panel life is estimated to be about 10 years.

Cons: LCD panels use back-lighting systems. Because the 'color' of the light does not change, the color reproduction of the LCD product is not as natural to the eye as the Plasma product.


LCD-LED TVs
(Same as LCD TV, with the following exceptions)
Pros: LED back-lighting produces a more Plasma like color response.

Cons: Panel life is about 70% that of the standard LCD products.

My ten year old sony plasma tv has vertical herring bone lines no picture just color lines. Is my picture tube gone.


If its 10 years old boards and or parts will likely not be available--average life on Plasma and LCD sets is 3-5 years.

I would retire it--recycle it and buy a new set.

The picture has gone on my Samsung 50 inch plasma tv. I have sound only. Don't know if it's worthwhile getting it fixed or if I should buy a new one. It's only three years old.


Plasma tvs are tricky for picture. They use two boards to burn the plamsa gas instead of one (LCD)...This almost doubles the price for any replacement boards, unless you know componenet level repair.


Overall, if you can find someone that will work cheap and knows what they are doing...then yes it isn't the most intence repair...but if NOT...then it's probalby too expensive to buy the replacement baords.


Thank you!~

I purchased a Grundig GUD1500XI2 Digital Freeview Box for my old small TV. Unfortunately it insists on filling the TV screen on 4.3 ratio by cutting off the sides of the picture. If 16.9 is selected it...


Please remember all modern Digital Set Top boxes are designed with HD LCD/Plasma TV's in mind. Their default aspect ratio is 16 : 9. The reverse was possible- LCD/Plasma allow you to change their viewing aspect ratio from 16 : 9 to 4:3 ( some models also allow 14:9 ).
You will have to return the box if it makes it intolerable for you to watch geometric distortions !!

Our LG Plasma is about 5 years old and now it has started strobe flashes really quickly and the colour and picture goes destorted its getting more regular can u please help???


georgiaheasm, I you prove pc not problem, then you or qualified electronics technician will need to troubleshoot units internat power supply for common problems associated with LCD plasma and CCFL back-lit monitors. Look for some DIY videos on YOUTUBE that deal with lcd repair, plasma lcd repair, lcd monitor disassembly, lcd tv disassembly. Look at them even though you will not DIY repair your unit. Good luck with repair. 12fixlouie

Black side bars on hd channels


You may have to refer to the instruction manual for details.

There should be in the menu set-up an option to set the aspect ratio for the different broadcast modes. Normaly, when viewing a 4:3 picture on an HD 16:9 set, the sides will be cut off, otherwise the picture will be stretched or compensated.
