Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a 37" element lcd tv, and recently the image has gotten blurry. If the TV is on for a long time, eventually the blurriness goes away. I have checked all of the connections on the back of the TV, and they seem good. What is the problem, and can it be fixed?

    I bought it from Circuit City (ugh) back in fall 2007, so it just a little over 3 years old right now. What's the problem with it??

  • mpistone Oct 09, 2010

    Why would that go wrong after 3 years? Also, how does it "warm up" and have the blurriness go away after a period of time? Is the problem only going to get worse?

  • mpistone Oct 09, 2010

    Any estimate on how expensive the fix would be and where to take it to find out? I'd like to avoid having to buy a new TV, but if the fix is going to be too much money then I just will buy another TV.

Hi,

To start with this is an internal failure. This is common with most of the TV's. If you could tell me the model number, i would be more specific to the model ?

Thanks!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    This seems to be a problem with main board.The main board will costs around-$200-$250.Add another -$100 for labor
    fee in case you will have somebody repairing this unit for you.

    Note - The above solution is the most common problem i have seen in the above set. There is still a need for you to inspect, test and then order the part.If you wish to repair it yourself, revert and i could tell you where you could buy a cost effective service manual and would also provide few pointers. You need to have electronics repair experience, need to read schematics, need to keep all precautions and would need to use multimeter and soldering iron.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How old is the T.V? If it is way old, the fix can prove expensive.

    I think it is the misconfiguration of the color wheel.

    The problem will remain in the same way for a while. Sometimes it may get rectified all by itself. Else it will become worser.

My picture is blurry,and words are blurry,what do i do


A blurry image on a high-definition LCD TV is typically the result of a mismatch between the TV's resolution capabilities and the resolution of the signal that is coming from connected devices, such as a DVD player or satellite TV receiver. Typically, blurry pictures result when a peripheral device connects to the TV through nonHD cables and jacks.

If your TV's connected devices do not have HD capability, they will transmit content to the TV in standard, analog signals. These types of signals are only capable of resolutions of up to 640 by 480 pixels. Pixels, for picture elements, are the tiny dots that make up the screen image. Most HD LCD TVs are capable of resolutions of as low as 1,366 by 768 pixels and as high as 1,920 by 1,080 pixels. When this big of a discrepancy occurs, the images display on the TV scaled, stretched and blurry.

Blurry images


Sounds like a lens problem. If you've ever let the camera "auto turn-off" as a power-saving measure, any button pushed will turn it back on...even if it's in a case or your pocket. This puts strain on the lens as it tries to come out...result....lens problems.

Blurry picture when hooked up to direct tv.Why?


try lowering the sharpness on your tv, because if the sharpness is to high it will make NonHD objects look blurry, also try changing the input cable or type of input.
