You should check the coax cable between the receiver and the LNB on the dish. Assuming that you can get to the dish, disconnect from the LNB - the connection will probably be covered with tape. Disconnect the cable from the receiver end. Examine both connectors and make sure that there are no stray bit of copper causing the short. With a meter, test the resistance between the centre pin and the outer screwed sleeve. The resistance should be very high. > 100Kohm. If it is a short or only a few ohms, you will probably need to replace the cable. If it varies the cable may be water logged. Damaged cable is not worth repairing even if you can find the problem area. Where I live, a bit further south than you - squirrels like to eat the insulation - and finding the damage is a waste of time. You can probably use the original couplings but don't forget to cover them with self amalgamating tape after you have checked your repair.

Hope this helps. If you are unsure or not happy about ladders then leave it to an aerial rigger.

Hi,

I might need a little more detail to solve this problem - I suspect the problem is an incorrect setting on your cable/satellite receiver (assuming you are using one), but let's start with the TV.

Firstly, switch the TV on and select a channel where you can see the ticker. Then press the "FORMAT" button (above the red REC/CONNECT button) on your Mitsubishi remote control. This will change the screen aspect ratio and the current setting will be displayed on screen. Each time you press the FORMAT button the screen size should change.

The screen aspect ratio settings for your TV are STANDARD, EXPAND, ZOOM, STRETCHED and NARROW. Press the FORMAT button repeatedly until "STANDARD" is displayed on the screen. If the ticker is still cut off, you need to change the aspect ratio setting on your cable/satellite receiver.

Please note: If the TV will only allow you to select STANDARD, this is not a fault. It simply means that the aspect ratio cannot be changed on the TV because it's displaying a picture from an external source, i.e. a cable/satellite receiver.

You should then look for a button on the front of your cable/satellite receiver or the cable/satellite remote control marked "FORMAT" or "ZOOM". When you have located this button, try pressing it repeatedly until the ticker is both fully on the TV screen and the picture covers the entire screen.

If you don't have a FORMAT or ZOOM button for your cable/satellite receiver or you are unable to set the picture size correctly, leave the TV set to STANDARD and then reply to me with the brand and model number of your cable/satellite receiver. I will then be able to assist you with finding the correct picture settings and give instructions on how to set these correctly.

I hope this helps - please post back here if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My sony wega screen went pink & blue then black now the stand by light keeps 5 times and tv will not turn on


This is usually indicative of a power supply or power board failure inside the unit. Unfortunately there is no easy fix and you will need repairs. Please contact Sony to see how you can go about getting a repair scheduled, or check with a local TV repair shop in your area. Sony's number for this department is: 239-768-7547

My Zenith C32V28 television does not display the top and bottom of the picture. I phoned Zenith tech support who told me that it was the satellite signal. I called the satellite provider who advised me it...


This is applicable to Bell Television Services (Canada)
I solved the problem myself after two calls to both Zenith and Bell Television satellite service. On the bottom left of the Bell remote control there is a * (STAR BUTTON). Press this * button and within two seconds you must press the channel change button up or down. This will do two things. One; it changes the channel; and also changes the ratio of the satellite signal. There are three satellite signal ratio settings. Try this when you are tuned to a TV channel such as BNN (Canada) (Business News) or The American channel which has a stock ticker usually displayed along the bottom of the TV screen. Select the ratio (setting) that allows the stock ticker to be displayed......hope this helps.........Jim McP

No screen display - VIzio 50" Flat screen TV


If you purchased the TV 6 months ago, still under manufacturers warranty. They normally give customers 1 year warranty coverage.
It looks like the main board will have to be replace on this TV or fix to the component level.

Not an easy fix because of the smoke which means that there is a short from a bad ground that may have blown a capacitor because of a loose connection. Often a short on the circuit board results in having to get a new one because of damage from the sparks. Make sure it is unplugged at all times until someone can open it and look. With any luck, the damage is light and the loose wire can be re soldered at minimal cost.
