Insignia lcd tv has double images. can this be repaired?


Hello,

You need to upgrade to the high definition cable box---but first try this. Hook the cable from the wall directly to the tv and autoprogram it. If Comcast is anything like charter they transmit the local Hd channels in a format that digital tuner will pick them up. Just channel up/down and check out the channels with -1 and -2's behind them. Depending on where you are----your local channels will usually show up wherever they normally do but with a -1 behind it.


If this is enough HD for you then get a two way splitter and hook your box back up and keep using the RCA (composite) cables for the best it can produce,if otherwise
The problem you face is failed convergence circuits. The repair cost is over $400; could be as high as $500.Convergence problems are usually caused by a diode on the convergence board. These little critters have a tendency to short out and cause the convergence to do strange things.if otherwise

Obviously, this is not a job for the home owner because few of you know electronics. So, call in the technician to make the troubleshooting of the circuit. The diode costs $.98. The technician will cost you about $250.

Hope this will help to solve the problem..

I can not get my component video to work for my xbox 360 with my with my Toshiba 36A43 Television


Do you get picture at all? What is your resolution setting on the Xbox? That TV is Standard Def. Plus on the plug that goes into the Xbox there is a switch for HD and non. Check and see if its swtiched over to HD. If the Xbox is trying to run in high def on a standard tv you will get no picture. Especially using the the little switch on those component cables. Hope this helps!!

PS...If this does help you please rate my level of help...Have a good day and good luck =)

How do I fix a fuzzy screen


A fuzzy television screen is generally not the fault of the game console itself, but of your television.

The Xbox 360 is an HD game console, and from personal experience, trying to render an hd image in 480i Standard Definition will cause it to look somewhat fuzzy regardless of the television.


Just to make sure it is not the Xbox, I would, if possible, suggest you try the 360 on another television, preferrably with the HD cables (remember that there's a switch on the cable itself that you will need to switch from SD to HD).

Unfortunately, if you do not have access to a high def television, you can always fiddle with the contrast and sharpness on your standard def TV to reduce the fuzzyness, but the screen will always be somewhat fuzzy.

I realize this is probably not the answer you wanted, but to solve this problem for my own Xbox, I ended up purchasing an inexpensive HD Television.

My xbox 360 console will power up as normal and put out sound but no video. i have tried multiple tvs and cables with no luck.


are you on a standard def or HD tvs? b/c if you have the xbox set on high def, then you try to plug it into the standard def then you won't get a picture, but you will get sound. If you don't have a high def tv then go to a friends or someone you know's and plug it in to see if you get a picture.

Have xbox 360....got used,no instruct. book,was hooked to flat screen tv, no longer have flat screen tv, have regular tv hook up game comsole to tv, wont work.....why


If it was hooked to a flat screen it was most likely on high def. There is a switch on the connection to the tv to make it work on a regular defination tv. Just slide the switch over to regular and it should work. Hope this helps.

XBOX 360 to Samsung HCM5525W high def convergence issue.


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

When i try to connect my xbox 360 to my Vizio hdtv it doesnt not recognize the connection. I have tried replacing the cord to no avail


I have a Vizio 37' tv with an Xbox 360 and it works fine. I am a Cable repair tech, hook up the xbox using the composit cable first RCA these are the red white and yellow cable to a non high def input on the tv, if that works check the settings in the xbox, there is a screen that will allow or enable HD quality pictures. Also check the Xbox cable itself. at the Y there is a small swiitch that goes from componet to composit you can only get HD if you use the Red Blue Green cables, then make sure you have the TV input set to that input other wise you will have only a blue screen. If that does not work, Hell, call the cable company if you are a customer, they should send someone out to show you how to connect it, and they might not even charge you, we don't, but I work for a smaller company, not ComCast or Cox, If you want to email me you can kml39@yahoo.com, good luck

HD resolutions


Your TV would have to be HD ready and will automatically set itself to 1080i, but if you go into the XBOX 360 console settings' the top menu enables you to change resolution, but if the x box does not recognise 1080i it will not show up. See if 720i shows up as this is still High Def. and also that 60 Hertz is the setting and not 50 hertz
