I am trying to hook my ps3 up to my Hitachi 65 s500. I have the hdmi cable to hook up to imput 1 but when I do that The screen is showing fuzzy color but no picture. What am I doing wrong.


Make sure you're hooking it up to the HDMI port or the Composite port correctly. There is a red green and blue for composite that usually wont work in a port marked "Input 1" You would need to put it in "component/composite 1" correctly. I've come across this not working in 1080, but fine in 720p.

How do i wire red white and yellow rca to an xbox 1 av plug. my av plug has blaack white orange and green wires


In the old school standard AV: Red and White are usually audio channels (Red:Right - White:Left), Yellow is video.

Orange can be coax audio, (both L&R channels in one cable). Before digital (optical) came out, some receivers actually had a coax (orange) jack in the back. Radio Shack sells a splitter if necessary.

In higher resolution systems video is separated into three colored cables: RGB or Red, Green, Blue
called 'component' video. The green cable carries Yellow, the blue cable carries (PB) Blue and the red cable carries Red (PR). And with today's tech, the component signal is carried YCBCR as (digital video.) cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YPbPr

Component 'wire colors' are there just to remind us. If your TV has "Component" input. Try green to green, white to yellow and black to red. Orange to audio (splitting L&R if necessary)..

What does it mean by dead cells?


I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

You wont want to hear this.....

Green dots on a LCD screen are burnt out pixels and unfortunately are incurable other than having the TV serviced at a high price. One of the reasons it is a good idea to get a warranty on these types of TVs is primarily due to this very problem....burnt out pixels.

My hitachi cpx 443 lcd projector recently has been projecting blue dots everywhere on the screen, how can I fix this or what is the problem?


How defined are the dots? Is each blue dot limited to the size of a pixel? I suggest you create a 3 slide image in powerpoint ..one slide completely blue, 1 red and one green. then project each image in turn and note what happens with the blue dot. My first thoughts are you have some pixels that are locked. Once that happens if are pretty much stuck with them. Optical it is impossible for a dust on the lens etc to cause them as if the picture is in focus at the screen the dust is way out of the depth of the field, sometimes you can focus the projector so that the point of focus is the lens surface but then the actual content will be way out of focus...none of which has anything to do with your blue dots.

Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several


If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

"The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

This may also be helpful.

"images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "

What is broken my hdmi cable,ps3 unit or the hdtv?


I would suggest this (you haven't said what kind of tv you have). I have a 37 in vizio, and a 25 vizio flatscreen HD tv. I had my PS3 hooked up using HDMI first time I tried it I got the little pixels you were talking about...so do this. Sounds stupid but it helped me. The HDMI cable where it plugs into the tv plug and unplug a couple times (three times worked for me. Do the same at the PS3 side of the cable. You want to do this with both of the machines off. Also make sure you have the PS3 configured appropriately for your TV settings...There is a way you can auto setup the screen and sound by shutting the PS3 off and holding your finger on the power button for like 5-10 seconds (it will beep twice) then let your finger off the power button.

When my HDMI cable went bad it would go from having a picture and sound to having no sound and a picture, to no sound and no picture. I thought I had a bad HDMI slot...but it was just a bad HDMI cable

if you take the back cover off the tv, you will see in a white screw in almost every board, those are called pot. (potentiometer).

Monitor


Sylvia,

It's seems you had a stuck pixal... Turn your monitor off and try this tips: Wn't work in every case. It may take a few attempts to make sure you are pressing exactly on the dead pixel.These instructions will fix "stuck" pixels, not "dead" ones, like red, blue or green. An alternative, but similar technique involves gently massaging the stuck pixel with a warm damp soft cloth.Alternative technique to tapping: Using a rounded pencil eraser, push with moderate pressure into screen at stuck pixel.
Good lucks!
