Question about Astar LTV-27HBG 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Picture is upside down

When we hooked up the tv and turned it on, the picture was upside down. Is this just a setting issue that can be changed to fix the picture? If so, how do we make this change? We don't have a remote to the tv, just using the menu buttons on the tv. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

    Hi, were you able to fix your upside down picture problem?

    I am facing a similar situation. After replacing main PCB of Olevia 232-S13 model, the picture is upside down!! Not sure what to do. May be there is a jumper setting somewhere. I used the remote and went through every menu but I can't see any option to correct the picture.

This set is very poorly supported!

For most of these types of sets, the original remote is require to make any set-up changes.

For an original remote, I would start checking out web sites that sell original remotes, or go to eBay and places like that.

This is a very well known remote seller. I have not delt with them myself. They have your model listed. You can give them a call or write them.

Just changed the main digital board on the tv and the picture is upside down. can this be fixed?

It can be fixed but it will most likely take a TV tech (more $$) to affect the adjustments. That is why I say just can it and buy a new one. Vizio is the longest lasting on the market, mine is 10 years old no issues. Also they are very cheap to buy.

I replaced the Video Main Board because the coaxial part of the tuner has been broken. The board Number was EXACTLY the same CV3393BH-A32 and the number on the sticker was exactly the same.

"As I suspected - this is a hardware failure.
There is not a quick fix.

Are you keen with opening up the TV and unplugging / replugging a particular board to see if it will revert the picture?

Before getting into that - lets try a global reset of the TV. Unplug and wait 5 minutes. Then press and HOLD the power button on the TV for 60 seconds.

Then plug it in and check.

Thomson 27lcdb03b picture upside down

I would suspect main board more than one you replaced--not likely to get help as Thompson is not known for that--possible firmware upgrade seems likely.

On every set I have seen with upside down/inverted or reversed screen etc it has been either a firmware issue or a main board.

My Sceptre television picture is upside down, can you help me fix it? Also no matter what we program into the TV it keeps coming up " Program Locked" upside down of course any clue to my problem?

If you select "source" on your remote then enter 7343 it will bring up a factory menu. Go down to 'Other setting' , the setting 'scaler output' should be set to "Normal". This setting flips the display.

Television screen is showing mirror image not the actual image.
