Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Power Consumption Tks for your help. The manual says the power consumption is 150 watts for the TV and 20 watts when using the built-in DVD player. The rewiring I did to make it a monitor was thru the cable of the DVD player after it was frozen in the DVD mode. Now the only thing that functions is the on/off switch and the image to the LCD screen comes directly from my HD cable box through a component cable which I soldered to the DVD input connection on the motherboard. Under this condition would I still be consuming 150 watts or something less perhaps as little as the 20 watts since I wired it thru the DVD input cable. Not an easily answered question I realize but what is your best guess?

If you have a amp probe you can make a test cord by splitting a standard household extension cord. you will want to make sure not to expose any wire in this process then put the probe around one of the wires for testing the one that is attached to the small tab on the cord or the one that gives you a reading.

to answer your question the maximum power usage would be 150 watts with the setup you described. I would guess this would be less depending on the brightness setting of your tv you use ie. super bright more power less bright less power.

on another note if you are concerned with power usage. there are whole house wattmeters available that clamp on the outside of your homes meter outside. it reads the wheel or digital signal the one I bought is wireless and the reciever is programable with your utilities rate to let you know how much money per hour your spending and even has a running total and peak usage stats date time and temp. outside.

Pls tell me the watt for tv model th-65 pv 500m


The closest thing I can find to your plasma TV is the Viera 65-in model TX-P65VT20E, which consumes 635 Watts. This should be close to the power budget for your unit.

Colour keeps going green all across picture


Going "Green" with HDTV In addition to considering screen size, TV type, and available features also consider ways to conserve energy. Below are a few energy consumption tips for your HDTV:
Turn the TV off when not in use.
Turn on the power-saver mode
Many TVs these days come with a power-saver mode that's designed to cut down the power consumption. Performance of this mode varies from model to model, with the effect sometimes being drastic and other times providing only a slight savings. The only downside is that the power-saver mode usually makes the TV less bright, but we've found that sometimes this has a beneficial effect on the image quality, especially with the room lights turned off, in which case it's a win-win situation.
Turn down the LCD's backlight
Many LCDs give you the ability to control the intensity of the backlight in the TV. By turning down the backlight, you'll lower power consumption, but also make the television less bright. While retail stores love to turn the backlights up all the way for their displays, we find that we get the best image quality when we turn down the backlight significantly.
Control room lighting
Reduction in the intensity of the backlight is going to make the TV less bright, but that can be compensated by controlling the light in your home theater room. While this may be a little overboard just for power consumption, limiting the light in your home theater also goes a long way toward creating the "theater" experience, as well as getting the most out of your TV.
And beyond TV concerns, good-quality blackout shades offer thermal benefits that keep other energy costs low; they keep heat in during the winter and keep it out during the summer.
Watch TV together
Having multiple televisions in a house is more of a norm than a luxury these days, but that also means your power consumption is going to increase as well. You can cut that power consumption by watching with your family or housemates. You might need to make a few compromises on what you watch, but sometimes it's more fun to watch with friends and family.
Don't forget to properly recycle your old model
If donating or repurposing your old TV is not a viable option, CNET encourages households to recycle their electronics. Please explore the following websites to find a recycling center in your area Electronics Take Back Coalition or Earth 911.
HDTV source resolutions There are two main HD resolutions in use today by HD broadcasters and other sources: 1080i and 720p. One is not necessarily better than the other; 1080i has more lines and pixels, but 720p is a progressive-scan format that should deliver a smoother image that stays sharper during motion. Another format is also becoming better known: 1080p, which combines the superior resolution of 1080i with the progressive-scan smoothness of 720p. True 1080p content is extremely scarce, however, and none of the major networks have announced 1080p broadcasts. The term 1080p today appears mostly in reference to the displays' native resolution, not the source.

Checking power consumption


you need a clamp on amp probe, a multimeter wont hack it. if you can get a amp probe, you first seperate the wires on your cord and then place the probe over one of the wires only this will give you your consumption. by the way, your approx usage of watts on a 26 inch lcd tv would be 160 watts. models do vary.
