Sony RDR-HXD560 with terrible picture quality

I have a Sony RDR-HXD560 with terrible picture quality. Switch it off and all the TV channels appear fine, so the aerial in/out connections are obviously ok, but switch it on and all DVD, HD, and TV programmes appear in black and white and are really grainy. I have repaired plasma TV's but know nothing about these. Could it just need a circuit board replaced, and if so, how easy is it to get the parts?

To get the part you need to go to the company to check what the problem is then if you will have to change circuit board you can get it right from them.

I have lost TG4 & RTE 1 & RTE -how do i restore


Sounds like you have a problem with the aerial or the connection cable. Hows the signal level and quality on the other channels? You need about 80% quality and 50-80% signal level for a decent stable picture. Quality is by far the most important.

The channels 03-30 or so are very grainy and don't have a very clear picture. It seems like the higher the channel the better the picture. The cable is high quality HD cable straight from the tv to the...


If you are using the TV's tuner and an aerial, the aerial has a problem , (one of the reflectors/elements has come off or is bent) or the tuner unit has gone low gain at the lower frequencies.
Have a look outside at your aerial. Or there is a poor connection in the aerial system.
Hope that helps

Tv with built-in digital tuner not receiving any channels


Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:http://www.stevelarkins.freeuk.com/freeview_digital_tv.htm
Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels.
This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard) signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial.
make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out.
The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable.
If you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these.
If the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the signal.
please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will only make it worse.
try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.

No colour when digital set top box attached


Ensure the set top box is set to the correct video out. Probably RGB if scart lead or CVBS if coax lead.

Hello,

 

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)

  1. Check the cables and connections: Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
  2. Check the  display issue with  a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal. For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV , switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away. If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and . If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Try to Reset the TV ( LCD) quality options. Please look in to User Guide to make the TV to factory Defaults..
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV . If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

I hope that this should resolve the issue. However, if the issue still persists then please contact LCD manufacturer for further more on the issue.

 

Bye.
