Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 36" TV

1 Answer

Have had this TV for over five years now. Picture and quality have been great especially since switching to FIOS. Now the picture is shadowy and image looks "tiled". Went to Sony online and they recommended doing the factory reset. In addition, anyFIOS(program info, widget) feed seems unaffected. Any ideas on fixing and ballpark number to fix?

Hi,
I need more detail about "tiled" picture to diagnose the problem.

Thanks.

    by tiling I mean that it looks like part of the same shot taking up part of the screen. As if you had copies of the same picture and didn't stack them on top of each other. I don't get a full screen on some stations it is cut completely in half and on most hd channelsit is more of a tiled effect. Also on life shots color is not defined and shadowy. I hope this helps. we don't watch that many dvd's. I am just trying to get an idea of cost as the tv is over 230 #''s and at it's age I don't want to move or sink much money into it.

    OK, it sound problem with tuner that provides noisy signal and causing strobe/ mosaic/ tiled effect in picture.
    Cost of repair could be around $120 to $150 in local tv repair shop.
    Hope this info will help you.
    Thanks.

No picture, only sound on LG 47LV5500: how do I get picture back?


Definitely odd for sound to come through and not sound, especially via an HDMI connection.

I would contact LG for support, your TV could be defective.

Good luck

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
    Press the CH button to display 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. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  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.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

Sony tv model KV32S42 picture taking forever to come in


Speaking as a retired SONY dealer, the short answer is probably yes. There are some repairs an authorized SONY repair center can do but if the tube is displaying a soft picture, it may not be wise to spend a couple hundred on repairs when a new medium quality TV is three hundred to five hundred for a SONY. I applaud your devotion to a set that has served you well.

(Bose lifestyle 28) DVD picture is distorted, shadowy and difficult to discern


Try the settings setup and adjust the brightness, video format, or video black level. If you're using component connections then adjust the video output. You can scroll system setup through the remote control settings button.

No Sound


sounds like you are using componant cables.[ red,blue,green on the right side in back of the cable box for the picture, & red & white cables for the sound.] make sure the red & white cables are connected to the middle white & red outputs of the cable box to the tv's red & white inputs, not outputs. hope this helps.

  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 .

  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.
