Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:

  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,
Dahaka

It depends on the size,location and how many dead pixels. If remember less that 5 they won't do nothing about them. Call the warranty people and find out. they will for the location, size of pixel and quantities. Good luck to you.

Fuzzy, Grainy Pictures


This camera is a perfect one to show the problem with the tiny sensors in the typical point and shoot. From the same sensor size that previously gave 2 or 3 megapixels, Canon now extracts 7.something. In order to do that, they have to turn the gain up so that each pixel actually puts out a signal to be recorded. The natural outcome of that is noise. In this camera, Canon includes heavy noise reduction software that softens the image in order to reduce noise at the various ISO settings above the minimum one, but the result is still a mix of noisy and soft or fuzzy images.

However, the noise should be well controlled at the low end of the ISO settings.

I suspect you have somehow gotten the ISO setting set up higher than the lowest one. Use the four-way controller to access the ISO and set it to the lowest (80) value. This should give you noise free shots.

As an additional suggestion, read the concise review of this camera at Dpreview, the link for which I've provided.

Blue snowy pixel areas on my plasma


some of these panels were mis-calibrated from the factory after not aging long enough. Let the TV run for atleast 2 hours and adjust the Vs and Vscan voltages. When it is blue in the left I have found generally the Vs is about 10 volts too high.

Plasma TV


If you mean the picture froze or formed fuzzy pixelated picture and crackling, this will be due to a poor aerial signal to the tv, but if you mean the screen rolls with pink/white patchwork type squares and shows the picture in the background, all be it fuzzy, then that's the same fault as I am getting and have had to report the fault to LG as I am on my second TV. If it is the problem mentioned in the first sentence, it is happening to our friends in OS and they have been told by specialist aerial fitters, the signal is too weak for the tv.
