Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

My HDMI input stopped working, which I could live with, I guess, (I saw your solution in another post) but, more or less at the same time, both of my component inputs started delivering only 720 instead of 1080 as always. Any ideas?

    Your assumption is way off, and I have checked and recheck the settings.

  • frankhi587 Jun 01, 2010

    Your are just plain wrong about component video only at 720. Anyhow my component video worked fine (1080) for 4.5 years and one day stopped and dropped to 720, in conjuction with my HDMI problem I would hope for a better guess than the last 2. If you don't have a resonable explanation just say so, and I'll move on.

First off I would need to know the make and model of the tv. Secondly there are 1000's of electronic components that make up modern tv's. It could very well be an issue with the I/O board. Once I have the make and model of the tv I can try and give you a more definitive answer.
Thank you,
Lee

    Without doing professional diagnosing then it all only really comes down to guesses. I would assume the I/O board to be the problem. Given the age and size of the tv it's really not worth repairing. Have you tried different sources through component to try and get 1080? Honestly your best option is to live with it and get the most use out of the tv as you can. Plenty of these models have only lasted 2+ years at all and need major repair and have no picture at all. If you have any other questions let me know.
    Thanks again and good luck,
    Lee

    Thanks, I agree about getting a new one....... anyhow, am I correct that the BN41-00567 av input card (for the LN-R408D) would probably would fix the problem and that the card removes/installs in a slot like, for example, a memeory board on a computer?

    Lee A. Jun 01, 2010

    Yes you are correct in what you are saying and installation in lcd's is a lot like computers and is pretty straight forward. Although those boards can cost a 150$ so that still isn't worth it as 2 days later you could run into a more serious problem and have invested more money into a used tv. Your best bet is to just use it not invest any money into it. With how cheap tv's are you can get a 37" for a few hundred dollars so your money would be better spent on a new tv, but its up to you. 720p is more then enough resolution and I actually prefer progressive over interlace. Also have you tried different sources to make sure its not the device that isn't outputting in 1080?
    Thanks,
    Lee


  • frankhi587 Jun 01, 2010

    Yes I have, the coax input using the tv's tuner give 1080. (You have to find the right number, like A&E HD is 107-2).... I found LN40C630 for $750, so same set with 5 years of improvements (I ordered the 46C630 for $910)... I will probably keep the new one and try to fix the old and see how that goes.

Hi,
Component video can show up to 720 picture resolution, only HDMI will show you 1080 picture.
There is composite video (yellow video pin) that shows only 480, then component video came that can show 480 and 720 pictures.
Now HDMI is only port that can show 480, 720 and 1080 picture resolution and component video will not show you 1080 picture. It is only possible through HDMI.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

I would assume someone may have messed with tv setting or you may have accidently returned a feature to default after hooking up a new compnent manually going into your picture format menu should allow you to change it back to your preference but with the ports going out it sounds like your tv may be ready to cause you a very large headache with repairs


hope this helps

I have HDMI laptop and Dell 1706FPVT 17" VGA monitor. I have VGA to HDMI cable and I connected the cable between these two machines but it is not working. Solution, please.


First of, a little bit of explanation.
VGA = analogue
HDMI = digital

The answer seems to be in your question.
it reads "VGA to HDMI". These cables or adapters doesn't work the other way around. I am guessing your cable can only support vga output to HDMI input. And your setup is HDMI output from your computer to vga input to your monitor.
Solution:
Try and find HDMI to VGA cable or adapter. This is expensive.
If your computer has a vga output, use this with vga to vga. You won't get a better resolution by using HDMI to vga.
Or are you stuck with only HDMI output?
There are adapters for USB to VGA too. This could be less expensive. I have one for my friends Apple Air. I am not a "i" fan so I do not have much experience on Apple.

Hope this helps.

All I can get is a white fuzzy screen neither remote will work


I saw your post, kimlucasmill, and wanted to help you get that fixed! If you're using an HDMI cable for the connection between the receiver and TV, make sure the TV is on the HDMI input. If it's a component or AV cable, make sure it's on the respective input of those two. In the event that you're using anything other than those, such as a basic coax cable, make sure the TV is on the correct channel, perhaps channel 3.

Hope that helps!

Hdmi inputs does not show a picture. The inputs just stop working.


I'm having the same problem. The projector stopped recognizing any input over either of the two HDMI inputs. The JVC RX-D411S receiver was working fine up until I used the VGA input with a computer and since that time, HDMI has not worked (despite working fine before). I tested two HDMI cables into each of the two ports but nothing! All other inputs work fine.

I have a Olevia 42 sn:VILK 75090165 firmware MDB1_AQ_242T_L_21B the TV audio keeps making popping sounds plus my HDMI inputs both of them stop working


Popping sounds means that there's a discharge inside the tv. Since the HDMI inputs have also failed my guess is that the 20 volts power rail from the PSU has problems, most likely caused by failing capacitors. The tv must be opened and that rail checked. This requires some electronics expertise, if you don't have it then it's time to call a repairman - his labor bill will be much higher than the price for the replacement parts.

MAX thickness of wood that this band saw can handle


Generally that's the limit. But to feed a piece that thick, you'd have to have a sharp blade, well adjusted guides and a pretty slow feed rate, depending on the species of wood. I'm guessing the saw will bog down and refuse to cut long before you reach that thickness, unless you have the patience of a saint and don't mind standing there feeding the board through a cm at a time.
Well- tuned it will definitely cut better, but these little portable saws are generally underpowered in my experience..and work best for 3/4" or less thick boards.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
