20 Most Recent SVA-USA SVA HD4208TIIIBU 42" Plasma Monitor Questions & Answers

Even if you have an HD television, it will not display an HD picture without an HD signal. Make sure you have an HD signal available and the television should automatically detect the mode and switch to it.

Can you post a picture of the TV screen showing the problem. Try to add a better description along with information on what lead up to the screen becoming fuzzy.

Thank you,

Hello matthew95765,
The TV is working, the message is coming from the dish box. What you need to do is to determine if the dish box is connected to the dish and that it has signal at the box, because the message it is delivering to the TV is that it is not receiving signal from the satellite. so you have to check the connection at the satellite and at the box because those are the only point that can generate the error you are getting.
I hope this helps,
Thank you,

You say your monitor is now humming. I understand this model has integrated speakers. Have you tried turning the volume on these right down, or even disconnecting the computer from these speakers as they may be picking up a "mains hum" from somewhere.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Unfortunately this isn't a solution but a request for one, as my monitor does the same thing. D: Anyone?

SVA-USA... | Answered on Oct 13, 2011

1st Check the cable that hooks to the monitor side. Then check it at the computer side. By check I mean to disconnect it an rehook it up again so you no it is seated correctly. On some monitors its hard wired so you cant check the monitor side.

2nd if you have access to a second monitor (after checking the cables on your monitor first). Disconnect your current monitor and hook up the test monitor. If you continue to get no signal or picture then you have a defective video (graphics) card and you will need to replace it.

I hope this helps you out, if it does please give me a YES that I did assist you. Thank you.

If this is a samsung crt monitor, this is a very common, usually unfixable problem. i reccomend buying an lcd monitor. Dont forget to rate

More likely to have bad caps, see examples here:

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

try to check your video card if its installed properly, or clen the surface of the video card to remove the dirt.

SVA-USA... | Answered on Feb 26, 2010

I assume it is an LCD monitor, sounds like you have bad lamp or a lamp power supply. It also could be wrong refresh rate for the monitor, try changing the refresh rate on your computer.

SVA-USA... | Answered on Dec 19, 2009

You need to up the refresh rate. Your settings may be slightly different to mine but this is how I get to it:

  1. Right-click on the desktop, select Personalize, Display Settings.
  2. Click Advanced Settings, select Monitor tab.
  3. Change Screen Refresh Rate to the highest number that is available.

When you can't change the screen resolution then most likely only the default VGA driver has been installed. You need to install the graphics driver of the video card that is installed in your computer.
To check which graphics driver is installed, click on Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Adapter tab. If the graphics adapter is set for Standard VGA then the graphics driver was not installed.

SVA-USA... | Answered on Aug 23, 2009

you need to check to make sure your speaker is off mute and confirm you have the right driver for your sound card by going to controle panel and open up sound/then go to sound and highlight a sound scheme then look for a black arrow going to the right...click and listen for sound..if the arrow remains grey then you don't have the right driver.
