Question about Sony Televison & Video

Television picture fault

When the tv is first switched on the picture is perfect, after it warms up a white strip appears horizontaly across the the centre of the screen. In this strip the colour seems perfect, outside of the stripe the scene has a greyish tone, colours are muted and bright areas such as light, fires, white clouds have a silver tone. In dark scenes this is not too noticable but in bright scenes it can be very obivious. I have spoken to Sony Reps but they don't have a clue and can give no guidance on the problem or possible repair cost. The tv was transported recently, but it was handled carefully. Can you help?

Sounds like an issue with the tube but you probably wont be able to fix it on your own, i would take it by an tv repair shop, they will determine if its repairable

How to get full picture on my tv?

First, ensure your tv is using the highest resolution possible (Usually 1080 for flat screens) by using an HDMI cable from the receiver to the television, and that you are on the correct input. Second, ensure your tv is not sizing the video by using the 'picture size' or 'aspect' or 'ratio' key on the remote that came with your tv (Not your DISH remote). Third, tune your DISH receiver (with your DISH remote) to an HD channel (for VIP model receivers, when you tune the channel to an HD channel, an opaque white 'HD' appears insude the blue box at the top of the screen). Fourth, hit the star key on the remote, while watching the screen. On the right hand side, near the top, it will cycle as you hit repeatedly the star key, the style of screen widening. Hit the key as often as you need to make the screen appear the way you want it to. The receiver will remember your setting for all HD channels. When finished with the HD channel, tune your receiver (with your DISH remote) to a SD channel (any channel in the guide that does not have the HD icon). Repeat the fourth step.

For Hopper/Joey family receivers, hit menu, settings, screen size. Follow the instructions to resize your screen to match your preference. When finished, repeat step four above on each an HD and a SD channel.

Installed a new set top box last night and all the channels are black and white - no colour at all - confused!!


Check your cables between the receiver and your TV to make sure the colors match. If you are using a component cable (green, blue, red, white, red), not matching colors at both ends will give you what appears to be a black and white picture. I hope this helps.

Hullo ... I have erroneously used the TV remote to change channels, where I should have used the TelstraClear remote to do this. I now get a "No Signal" box on the television and am unable to...


The TV is not on the correct input setting or channel. Depending on your TV model and the receiver, you have a cable coming from the receiver to the TV. That cable could be a coax (screws in), RCA (yellow, white, red tips), component (green, blue, red, white, red tips), or HDMI cable. For all cables except the coax, the TV should be on an input setting. With your TV remote, you should have a source, input, or TV/Video button. Press that button and it should bring up a list of input settings. Each time you press that button it will scroll you down the list. Try each setting until you find the picture. I hope this helps.

The white things like shirts and writing have turned a yellowish green and when you turn down the colour to get black and white its the same is it the tube ?

In short, yes. The red colour gun has failed.

You don't state any make or model, but on almost all conventional televisions (using cathode ray tubes) this can only be fixed by replacing the entire tube assembly. As this is the single most expensive item in the whole tv it's cheaper to throw the tv away and replace it. If you're not too choosy there's no need to buy a replacement as millions of perfectly good tv's are being thrown away simply due to people upgrading to LCD/Plasma.

Have a look on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups; they appear regularly and all you have to do is collect the tv. Sometimes folks will dishonestly and knowingly list a faulty tv by omitting to tell you what faults it has, but that's sometimes the price of a freebie..

I have an Hitachi digital set top box which i leave switched on.When i switch on the television it takes 5 to 10 min for the picture to materialize and then stabilize into a good image.What is the problem?

Some component(s) is/are having to heat up, to a point, so that it's value changes & as it does so, gets to a point where the set stabilizes, and works. Thermal faults are real hard to find.. Although a good application of Can Freeze Spray can soon sort out your "Bad" component(s)

Mitsubishi Television - Model CS40507

I would replace the cable and connectors to include the wall plate and connectors on both sides of it as well if this is duplicated on another set at the same location. If it is not some TV's will allow you to use both sides of the port. Most however have a side for digital and a side for analog signal and some will not allow the use of both sides.
Hope this helps you.
