Question about Televison & Video

6 Answers

I have purchased a new 19 inch hd/digital/freeview/dvd tv. When I am trying to listen to the tv there is a hiss that continues while anyone is talking. I changed the tv thinking the original one was faulty but this one is doing the same thing. This did not happen on my old portable so I don't think it is an aerial problem and i have tried adjusting the treble etc. Can you offer any advice? Kind Regards Jill

    Hi

    Would this not have happened on my old tv if it is a signal problem? I am getting the freeview without problems and I have been told if my signal was poor I wouldn't be able to access this?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Digital TV is connected to aerial socket by male/female aerial cable. Cable and socket are good. Have used my old tv on it for last year and have tried another tv. Neither of which have the same problem.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Looks like I'll have to take the TV back and try a different manufacturer.

    Thanks

There are two things to look at very closely. First, we know that only one component seems to be causing the hissing. You are sure that the input cable is okay so let's look at something else. The other thing impacted by sound is output. Are you using the television speakers for both the DVD and teh DTV or are you using two types of speakers for the DVD and DTV.
Another issue can be electricity or interference. DVDs are less suseptible to outside interference. Try changing the location of the DTV unit attached to your tv. if the sound changes then you know there is interference from another electronic gadget in the house. Also, check which outlets the different devices are plugged into. switch them around to make sure it is not a bad wall socket. I hope this helps. It sound pretty frustrating consider all of the work you already put into this.

    Interference occurs when undesired radio signals or electromagnetic "noise" sources are picked up by consumer electronics products -most often telephones, audio equipment, VCRs or TVs. It usually results in noise, unwanted voices or distorted TV pictures.

    In most cases, the source is nearby.

What connection are you using to connect your DTV to your television? You may want to make sure the cable is good, or upgrade the cable.
Keep me posted.
Thanks,

    If you can only hear the distortion with that input on that tv. Then it has to be that input on that tv.

TV wont stay on


Sounds like a short somewhere in there. I see old pre-HD big screen sets going for well under $200 on my local craigslist, so look there for a good replacement, because the repair will cost more.

Or fork over about $500 for a good used HD projection set.

Connection problems with Philips DTR220


There is such a thing as a HD areial, but in this case it sounds like you need to point the antenna in the right direction. If your freeview is digital then there is a diredtion the areial needs to piont, and there is a front and a back to it. You need to find where the signal source is located and point the areial in that direction.
