Dark picture on composite inputs ?


When I'm using the composite inputs (both of them) I get dark picture, really ugly :(. At the moment I switch to analog input the picture is good, but I dont have the HDTV quality anymore.
The technician from Time Warner come and we tried brand new set-top/decoder box. He unpacked it in front of me.
That is why I think it has something to do with my Olevia ?
Is this easy fixable... send an email to Olevia nobody bothered to answer.
What could be the problem.

thanx in advance

How to connect dvd player to LG RZ-32LZ55 in LCD TV

This 'TV' is really more of a video monitor. It has one DVI input, 2 SCARTS (1 RGB); component video input; composite video input; S-video, and stereo audio and RF inputs. Best picture would be using the component inputs if your DVD player has the outputs. If not you'll have to consider the S-video or composite (yellow) plugs. (Neither is HD capable....)

Power went off a moment now back on TV sound and words on but no picture at all black screen?

Try another input like DVDs player or game station something other than normal. For example if using the cable input. Try the HDMI port or componet or composite ports. If none of those work the then your GPU is blown. And if that is the case you will most likely be better off getting a new TV.

Sony Bravia kdl-42ex443 I have no picture (just blank, dark grey-ish screen) but can hear the sound. I have tried changing the channel but the problem remains the same, I have also tried the classic 'turn...

Have you tried changing inputs on the tv? on the remote there should be a button called "input" that will cycle through the plugs on the back of the tv. If you are using the "Green, Red, Yellow" that is composite, if u are using a single flat-end cable, it will be called HDMI. Cycle through all the inputs and when you land on the right one, the picture should show.

Short Version:

Press input button on remote, until you see picture.

ELMO Visual Presenter (Model EV-2000AF) does NOT display COLOR properly onto HDTV monitor. (Appears Bluish or Reddish w/ 2 Composite Cables connected)

Those jacks you are plugging into on the HDTV are not composite inputs. They are component. The reason the color is not right is, you have to have a Red, Green and Blue connection.

The black and white picture from the 1 cable is because you are using a composite signal into a component green.

Big difference between a composite and a component signal. I hope this helps.

The picture is very dark and it has a new bulb

Unfortunately, this is not an easy diagnosis. It could range from being an issue with the brightness level (which can be accessed from the menu) or an internal processor defect.

First access the menu and verify the brightness levels and contrast levels.

Next, make sure the problem isn't in a single input by changing the inout of the component that you are viewing. Component cable inputs are notorious for going bad so try an HDMI if one is available or even a basic composite cables will work for diagnostics.

If the picture is still dark after this it's probably a processing problem and will require professional maintenance.

Television picture is black and white

Check how things are connected to it. If you are using the composite inputs they may not be hooked up correctly.
Try another source if you can to see if there is any difference. In some cases just switching has been known to reset this condition.
I don't believe a Black and white picture is really a symptom of the TV but rather what you are putting into it.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I bought an aquos lc-30hv4u and it has no rca jack etc, only two plug ins labled display input 1 and 2. I am guessing its just a pc monitor. How would I use it for cable tv video games etc

There are lots of inputs on the back behind the cover. Three inputs (1, 2, 3) have an S-video, composite video (A/V) and component video jacks. The cover will come off if you press the two top hook at the top of the cover. Then rotate the cover towards you. There are also a DVI-D port and 2 coax (antenna in) jack. The tuners included are for NTSC (analog OTA) and CATV (analog cable). The front of the PC (VGA) and a S-video or composite (A/V) video input (called Input 4).

Composite and component video jacks are all RCA jacks (as are the associated audio jacks for the input). Composite cables uses three RCA plugs on each end - yellow for video, red and white for Right and Left audio. Component video cables have three plugs on each end that just carry video (red, blue and green); the audio is wired separately with just 2 RCA red/white plugs. Match your colors from the device out to the TV input.

Changing inputs can be done with the remote or the input button on the top of the TV. The input button is to the left of the power and Main Power buttons.

Connecting your game system, cable system and all will depend on the units. For the best picture, use component video cables for mose set top box. Some cable boxes have a DVI port - use that if the box has that option. If they do not have component video out, then use composite or S-video cables.

The owner's manual is available from Sharp as a pdf: . Use the drop down menus as follows > LCD TV, Model not listed, LC-30HV4U then click Search. The picture of the inputs are on page 10.

I hope this helps.
