My tv picture has gone green, what can i do?

If you are using RGB cables make sure they have not come loose. If you have a box of some sort (cable or SAT) you may need a new box. If you have a DVD hooked up to it and it is OK it is not your TV.

I used the TV remote to change channels instead of using the new SAT remote and now I can't get the tv to work...all I see is fuzz. I followed instructions from handbook to "recover" etc...still no...

more info needed... if it is the tv 1 and you have a coax cable (screw on cable) the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 if you have it connected with rca cables (red, white, yellow) the tv will need to be on input (tv/video, input, video, source, on your tv remote) if it is a high def receiver and tv it will need to be on the input hdmi or component (component= y/pb/pr (green,blue,red)) if it is the tv2 (if the sat remote has a blue 2 at the bottom) the tv will need to be on channel 60 or 73 if your still getting snow check the cable connections and or replace the cable and make sure you have the green light lit on the front of the receiver box.

Samsung LE26R7 4BD, approx 4 years old, colour distortions

Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.

satellite box send out siginal in the same frequency, so the tv tuner doesnt have to work on it, but all siginal coming to the Tv goes through the turner.

Boxes on screen when first turned on

What is very interesting about digital video is that it works with memory, sampling, and clock cycles. If any parameter is off specs to the point where the correction routines cannot interpolate the data there will be errors shown. When these types of problems happen the effect can be unstable. There are many factors that can contribute to these errors.

What is also interesting with digital video, is that the error factors and characteristics can change with the content and with the change of content. When there is more than the average data to process, delays can be introduced.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have seen aliasing many times with digital transmission and processing equipment.

If the processor boards in the TV set have been changed, logicaly this should normaly rule out any problems with the set. It would be a very big coincidence that the new boards have the same defects as the old ones.

If you can play your DVD's using the HDMI cable in to the same input where the sat was, and there was no visible fault, you know for sure that the fault is not with the TV set!

I would guess you even swapped HDMI cables around to rule these out as well?

If you have a set of A/V component cables, and your sat box and TV set has the component option, you can test the component input of your set from the sat box. This will still be able to be HD, but it will be analog between the box and the TV. This may point ot something later on if there is still a fault.

Many times over the years, I have seen intermittant faults with cable boxes and satellite systems. Anything is possible with these.

The simplist sat system has basicaly the following components:

Dish and LNB located outside.

A cable that runs in to the house that has CATV connectors on each end. The connector on the outside must be the waterproof type.

There will be two cable runs on some systems for a double LNB, or there can be 2 LNB's on a sophisticated system.

On the inside of the home, depending on the system there will be an A/B relay for the Horiz and Vert polarization for the signal being recieved. In a single wire system, this relay can be built in to the LNB.

Then there is the necessary cable feed with connectors to the TV sat docoder box.

If there is a shared system, then there will be a distribution system, and possibly multiple A/B relays, depending on the type of system.

What I am pointing out here, is that there are many parts of the sat system that can degrade the signal. I would start with the most simple, and that is trying a new box.

Ask your sat company or your dealer if they will give you a loan of a box to try.

Also, a professional sat system installer who has a spectrum analyser and knows what he is doing, can check out the system from end to end to see if there is any signal losses up to the decoder box. The next step is to try parts in order to locate any failures.

Here is another approach. If you have a neighbor or friend that is on the same sat service as you are, ask him if you guys can swap sat boxes for a few days just to see what happens. If he gets your problems, and you are okay with his sat box, this rules out the sat box totaly!

For your sat system, you can go to to the dish and make sure that the connector is screwed on securly. You can remove it to see if the center contact is okay, and also see if there is any sign of corrosion inside the conntector. Corrosion means water was leaking in.

You can follow through to make sure all the connections are okay. You will not be able to test anything without being able to substitute the parts, or have the equipment to take measurements.

Personaly, I am betting on a fault with the satellite system, and not the TV set!

KD-36FS130 Digital Set-Up?

I did not know that the Sony FS series has digital capability. This is supposed to be the most basic model of CRT flat screen TV that Sony made.

You can get a digital cable or satellite box that outputs analog baseband or component analog video and analog audio. You can then connect this box in to the TV set. The TV will then display the analog signal from the digital box.

If your cable or sat box is able to tune in standard channels, but cannot tune in the ones that are on digital service, then the fault is with the box, or the cable or sat system. This you should address to the TV service provider.

Color Problems: No Green

Because the fault is intermittant this can be a cold solder connection anywhere along the video path of the green drive output at the colour demodulator through the various stages up to the CRT socket. It is also possible that there is a failure occuring in the bias supply that works for the green electron-gun in the CRT in the case of a CRT type set. It is also possible that there is an intermittant component along the green video path. On rare occasions the CRT itself can have an intermittant fault.

This would have to be serviced by an experienced tech. You can take the set in for an estimate to see if it is worth servicing.

the hd sat box is your converter and is compatible to your tv (1080i only). if you are asking about local braodcast (over the air) this set doesn't have an ATSC (digital) tuner so you would need a box for that. but your sat company may be giving you your local broadcast in HD.
so if you are presently using an aeral antenna for your locals yes you will need the box.
if your locals are already being supplied by your sat company no the sat box is your converter.
note: some sat boxes have ATSC tuners built in so your antenna can be used by the sat box as well.
