1080p high def issues

I recently purchased a Samsung LE37M87BDX/XEU TV, i have been trying to set it up but have incounted some problems when trying to connect my PS3. The TV is 1080p HD and as I understand it the PS3 has this capability as well, yet I can't seem to get the PS3 to run at this level. I have attached it to the TV via an HDMI cable yet when I enter the PS3 settings and try and activate the 1080p the TV screen goes blank and after about 15secs a message is displayed by the TV saying 'mode not supported'. This seems to be a message being displayed by the TV, i've tried looking through the settings options on the TV but I can't see what or how I can change anything!?

    I have a Samsung DLP(1080p) connected to a blu-ray player and I got the exact same message. I am using an HDMI cord from Wal-mart that was farily cheap. Do HDMI cables vary in quality? If so, what is required for true 1080p quality?

The HDMI cable I had originally wasn't a good enough quality. I purchased an HDMI v1.3 cable and everything works at 1080p. You don't need to pay loads for a cable, got mine from Play for £9.99.

How can you tell if a tv is High Def or not?


If a TV is Widescreen Shape, it is usually going to be HD. It's just a matter of HOW HD. 1080i, 720p, or 1080P. Google is always useful ;-)

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

XBOX 360 to Samsung HCM5525W high def convergence issue.


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

60hz to 120hz


If you are asking if there is a way to make a 60hz tv a 120hz tv, no, there is no way to do that. The clarity is mostly dependent on the signal and the TV. For instance, if you have a 1080P television and are getting a 1080P signal (from a Blu-Ray player or HD DVD), then you should be getting a very clear picture. It will be a little smoother if the TV's refresh rate is 120hz or 4ms as opposed to the standard 60hz or 8ms. If you have a high-def satellite or cable box, you should get 1080i if the channel is broadcasting that way, but you cannot make the TV do something it was not designed to do.

Scrabble when HDMI cables are hooked up to AV4


Your issue has nothing to do with the repair. This TV model maxes at 1080i, and your video game maxes at 1080p. Set both the TV and the video game system to either 1080i for high-def or settle with 480p by setting bothe the TV and video game to that resolution. If the problem persists even after this, then check the Philips website for a firm upgrade. WARNING: use of modern video game systems with a plasma or projection TV is a bad idea.

HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
