Question about Harman Kardon AVR 235 Receiver

Poor Picture Quality

Hi There:

When I am using the component video (for either dvds or cable tv) the picture gets distorted when I turn the volume up on the reciever. If I disconnect the audio cables then the problem goes away. Any idea as to why this is happening? Thanks.

My DVD is playing my videos in black and white .. It's a Panasonic tv model is tc-L32c5


follow the steps. God bless you
Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.


  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    Hi,

    Below are some troubleshooting tips for a TV that has a fuzzy or blurry picture;

    If your Plasma or LCD TV picture is blurry or fuzzy there are several things that may be causing the problem. It's worth running through the following list before seeking service. You may find yourself saving the full cost of a TV repair.

    Make sure you are using the appropriate cable box for your TV. If you have a high-definition TV you should also be using a high-def channel box from your cable provider. Watching standard definition channels on a high-def TV can make the picture look distorted and fuzzy.

    Not all cable channels are broadcast in high-definition. When you stretch a standard definition picture to fill the full frame of your wide-screen TV it may look distorted. You can try changing your TV display settings to show standard-def channels at their native resolution. This will create black or gray bands on either side of your picture.

    Ideally all of your video components will be connected to your TV with HDMI cables. Your next best option will be component video cables. If your cable box does not have HDMI capabilities, contact your cable company about upgrading your box to one that does include HDMI.

    Make sure there is no glare on your TV from a window or other strong light source. This can significantly degrade the quality of the image you are watching.

    If your TV has digital noise reduction, try turning that feature on.

    You can adjust your TV's sharpness and picture modes to see if that improves picture quality.

    Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. You may be receiving electrical interference through your power cord.

    Trying moving any nearby electrical devices away from the TV. They may be creating interference that can degrade the picture quality.

    Let me know if the above helps or not, so that I can direct you further on what do next.....

    Best regards.

    Take one co-axial cable, and connect the "input" port to your cable-company's wall-port.

    Look at the connectors on the back of your TV. You could have:
    * coaxial input (lowest video-quality)
    * S-Video input (better video-quality)
    * component input - three cables for video, two cables for audio (better video-quality)
    * HDMI input (highest video-quality)

    Look at the connectors on the "output" side of the PVR. You could have:
    * coaxial output (lowest video-quality)
    * S-Video output (better video-quality)
    * component output - three cables for video, two cables for audio (better video-quality)
    * HDMI output (highest video-quality)

    Connect the "outputs" to the "inputs", using appropriate cables.

    Turn the PVR on. Turn the TV on.

    Use the "source" button on the TV's remote-control to select from the various inputs
    (Coax, S-Video, Component, HDMI1, HDMI2).

    If your TV has 'PIP' ("Picture-In-Picture") capability, connect more than one output to a second input, so that both tuners inside your TV will receive a signal.

    Hi,

    Is it a Duplicate Question....Wonder why?

    Same reply :0


    This is an internal Fault. Diagnosis is required to make sure whether it is Failed T Con Board or Light Engine. I do not think that it would really help by changing the TV settings. This was a Common Problem with Old LCD's where you got Blurry Spots specially while Playing Real Fast Movies or Games. On Few Occasions, it as Corrupted Firmware.

    As i cannot see the Video or Screen from here, more likely what i could guess it is an Internal Fault as you have tried using HDMI, Use different Setting Combination's and you got the same Picture Quality with DVD as well.

    So, what i could suggest, get back to the Seller and Lodge an Official Complain and get it Replaced. There is no point in Opening and TV and Inspecting it and Replacing Components when it was less than a month ago.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

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

    Hi!

    That S-video cable...if it is longer than 1 meter you will get a poor picture. Get an component cable and connect your players thru that, that will improve thepicture 1000 times, belive me

    This is the connectors back on your Acer
    1 x RGB D-Sub 15pin
    1 x Composite
    1 x S-Video
    1 x Component

    And the component connector is way the best of them, its better that all of the together..if i may say so

    NO volume


    often people make the mistake of hooking their devices to the tv using more than one input.  a cable box for example may have many different types of outputs but you are only going to use one to the tv (preferrably the highest quality connection). try switching the inputs on the tv to see if you get the same picture on two different inputs.   If using s-video, you will also need a red & white RCA cable for audio.  The order of video cable quality from lowest to highest is this: Coax(screw on), Composite(yellow,red,white), S-video(Round)+(red,white), Component(video=red,green,blue), HDMI(carries HD video & sound)

    Playstation 3 distorted picture when turned on


    I had the same problem (see above) and was able to fix it. The solution my be an S-video plug. I went to Wal-Mart and picked up a universal component S-A/V cable ("universal" in that you can use it for PS2, PS3, XBOX 360, Elite & Wii consoles).

    At first, I used only the audio and video plugs and the picture still appeared distorted. Then I plugged the S-cable in (to the TV) and the picture displayed crystal clear!

    Keep in mind, I never had to use an S-cable with my PS3 before. It worked fine without it from day one. I also can't blame the firmware update because I did the firware update AFTER I noticed the distorted picture. Previous to that, I had done every other firmware update with no problems. I know it's not the TV because I tried on four different televions and the result was the same -- so I'm left scratching my head, but at least the picture is clear.

    For those wondering, the cables I bought were Phillips S-AV cable. It comes in a white box and is 8 feet long. The price was about $20. Sony offeres component A/V cables for more than double the cost, but chances are, those cables would have been useless to me since they did not include an S-video plug.

    Poor picture quality on my samsung HD TV


    Hey xf1racer,

    Based on the description that you provided, it sounds like you are using a bundled composite video cable to connect your cable box and TV. Composite video cables generally consist of three color-coded cables: one yellow, one red and one white. While the yellow cable is typically used to transmit the video signal to your TV, the red and white cables transmit the right and left audio channels respectively.

    Red/green/blue bundled cables however, are often referred to as component video cables - each of the three colored cables is used to transmit a different portion of the same video image from one device to another, and require a second separate cable (typically red/white) to transmit an audio signal.

    The primary benefit of using component over composite cabling is that many users may report a cleaner, more brilliant image on their TV as a result. Please keep in mind however that this is not a guarantee that changing from your current set-up to component cables will improve the picture quality on your TV, as picture quality is often based as much on personal preference as it is the actual configuration and settings of the equipment used.

    Additionally, many retailers may suggest changing your current configuration to one using HDMI cables instead to improve picture quality even further. Unlike composite and component cables, standard coaxial cables, and S-Video cables which transmit analog signals, HDMI cables are designed to instead transmit uncompressed digital signals. This typically means that more information is available for your TV to process in terms of color hue, color intensity, as well as image resolution. Again, remember that any perceived improvements will be based on both personal preference as well as your home theater configuration.

    Should you have any questions or lingering doubts, I would strongly suggest speaking with a Magnolia Home Theater agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Most stores will have similar TV's on display using more than one type of connection, and sales associates are always able to provide additional suggestions if desired.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron
