Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Dear Sir/ madame Good morning, My Grundig gdivx120 when playing a movie, has a bad picture quality, sound is ok. I tried to clean the head of the dvd player by playing a head cleaner, but this didn't help. On Youtube saw a video clip explaining how to open and take out the dvd and dismantling the dvd to be able to clean the head with alcohol. Do you agree with this or should I buy a newer disk head cleaner. Thanks on your prompt reply in advance, Max

DVD is a digital picture, so no amount of head cleaning will improve the picture. I think the head cleaner you have may be scam. If you can see the lens that reads the disc, you could take a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and gently clean it. Then dry it again with a Q-tip. If that doesn't help, then I'm afraid you may just have a bad player or TV. Try looking at your TV's settings to see if maybe the settings are off. I hope this helps!

The picture is almost like it is out of convergence it gets better when brite and contrast is turned down

Good day sir John!!!!

That problem is usually cause of bad T-con board (T-con board is the one that responsible for the quality of picture) in normal bright and contrast you see the color/picture is distorted..The color is like over tint and the quality is not good..

However,there are some points to consider like wrong settings and weak/bad connections of digital cable..

Try this steps:

For wrong settings-to determine if you have a wrong settings or you press wrong buttons on remote..Try to go to menu and find default settings or factory settings then press enter to restore factory settings in this procedure all previous settings return to original so the tv is works fine after this if your problem is in the settings..

For digital cable fault- You can determine the problem by playing DVD movies on your TV if the works fine in DVD movies.Your TV is good but there something wrong with the connections of your digital cable please let me know!!..Or you can try to wiggle the coaxial cable on the rear side of your TV and look at the TV screen while you do that and see if there is any improvement or reaction of color/picture try to fix the coaxial wire...

If the above procedure not worked the problem is on T-CON board let me know first if you decided to replace it for proper instruction on how to replace to avoid damage and for your safety..

Just keep on touch sir!!!!

Thanks for choosing my service..

Hope it helps.

Hi I am having a LG VCR GC980W 6 heads HiFi model. There is a bad picture and sound in some cassetes while playing while in another video the same cassetes works fine. I wonder whether it can be belt...

This is adirect drive type and the poor picture quality has nothing to do with the belt.
The fault can be due to
1. fault head- since this is a Hi-Fi type , it is 6 head type. try cleaning the head to confirm, use a clean cassette.
2. Problems in the head amplifier circuit.
3. Check the RF connection to TV.
4. Clean the audio head and use a ordinary cassette to confirm the sound. Also try with a Hi Fi cassette.

If not the head is a suspect.

I have certain movies for my grandchildren. There

I assume the picture after viewing your "certain movie" you have a snowy type of picture with sound? This is because your "certain movie" will have a bad section or worn section of tape & is making the heads dirty. Is there a part of the "certain movie" that gives wavy lines or the picture breaks up? If a tape is constantly used it causes the oxide coating of the tape to flake & dirty your heads. You could try a head cleaning tape although these sometimes do not do a thorough clean.

VCR sound works but no picture

It could be that the video heads are just clogged.
Get a known good video tape and put it in the unit and let it just play and play and play. Quality video tapes have head cleaning substances built into the tape. If this does not work, get a Scotch Black Watch tape head cleaner. If that does not work the the heads are bad or some other problem.

Poor EP playback

hi sir
the speed in EP is differ from sp ,EP it is much slow then all quality would be less cause you are using less magnetic particles on the tape so here are many reasons for bad recording
first may be you have to clean video heads
or ,you have to clean the path of the tape in the recorder there are some metal guides that turnes with the tape to get it rounds the heads they may be dirty
or clean the capstain pinch roller and its metal roller that makes it run ( the capstain roller )
or you should have new heasd drum sir
