Question about Westinghouse LTV-32w1 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Slight picture issue under specific conditions.

Ok, i run my computer off of it. I happen to have alot of discs that are mpeg2's and for some reason with them if i try running them off my computer the figure outlines within images kind of flake out if they're moving too fast. Not sure if brightness of the images are a factor as well. I'm pretty sure my current connection types SVGA. I'm wondering if putting a better connection option in my pc would help this problem. Or if reading that format from disc just doesn't work so well. I've no issues with DVD's. Just the mpeg2 disc's so i'm just lost and hoping theres a solution cause some of my discs kind of require playing on dvd-rom in order to play through and i'd reall like to be able to get a clear image consistantly. Thanks for any input.

In any case, this is not a problem with your TV. You see regular DVD's ok, so the TV itself is fine, and your post is a little out of place in this product page. What I would suggest is that you take the mpeg2's to a friend with a different PC rig, and compare results. It could be your graphics card, and also the software/codecs you use, even the encoding quality of the discs. Try one of the Video coding forums. In general, LCDs aren't as good as standard CRTs when it comes to moving images, I guess you're seing that enhanced through that file format, or in combination with the software you're using. Good luck

Duplicator freezes

Freezing can be from many reasons. I can sort of list a few common ones that I have run across with duplicators.

o Defective drive in the drive chain (very common).
o Power supply is having a slight failure or instability.
o Connector in the system having poor contact (not very common)
o Fault condition in the controller, and or the mother board.
o Corruption in the firmware (operating program in the mother board).

Died going down the road, have gas and spark, but wont start now.

For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine, compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
  • Compression - Engine compression caused by crankshaft rotation and pistons moving up and down inside the engine block. If the timing belt or timing chain fails it will cause the camshaft to become out of correlation with the crankshaft or allow the camshaft to stop rotating. Either of these conditions will cause the engine to lose compression and sometimes cause internal engine damage.
  • Fuel Delivery System - The fuel system includes: fuel pump, fuel injectors, pressure regulator, fuel filter and pressure lines. This system is used to supply fuel under pressure to the fuel injection system, the lack of fuel pressure or volume will cause the fuel delivery system to fail and the engine to stall or not start.
  • Ignition Spark Delivery System - The ignition system components include: spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor (if applicable), crankshaft angle sensor, camshaft angle sensor, ignition coil, ignition module, knock sensor and ECM (engine control module). The engine relies on the ignition spark to be delivered to the combustion camber at the correct time. If the ignition spark stops or is delivered at the wrong time the engine will not run or run poorly.
If Your Engine Cranks but Does Not Start Follow this Troubleshooting Guide
Most vehicles operate by the same principle; basic troubleshooting procedures apply to most cars.
  • Step 1: Anytime you have a problem with electronically controlled components such as an engine, transmission, ABS brake, or SRS (supplemental restraint system, Air Bag) inspect all fuses using a test light and check the under hood power distribution center and under dash fuse panels. If all fuses test ok continue to the next step.
  • Step 2: To check for problems with electronically controlled components such as an engine, transmission, ABS brake, or SRS (supplemental restraint system, Air Bag ) and the fuses test ok a trouble code scan is needed to identify any system trouble. Use a simple scanner tool to retrieve trouble codes and see if they relate to the specific problem, like a crank angle sensor failure code. If the trouble code present does not pertain to the immediate problem like an EVAP code ignore it until a later time, after the car is running. The reason we repair non-related codes after the engine is running is because sometime false codes can be triggered by the engine not running. Once the engine is running again the code present might cycle and turn itself off. You might say "if the engine doesn't run shouldn't it have a trouble code?" Sometimes conditions occur that will not be detected by the computer, example: if the fuel pump fails the computer cannot detect the failure, so the engine doesn't start and the computer thinks everything is ok with no codes. If no trouble codes are present proceed to the next step.
  • Step 3: The spark plugs in your engine are used to ignite the compressed fuel air mixture. If the condition of the spark plugs are fouled by excessive fuel or carbon the engine will not start, backfire or run rough. Remove all spark plugs to inspect their condition. Please use this spark plug condition reference guide to see how the spark plugs are operating.

I have windows xp with a dvd burner for a drive. i have Heroes Season 3, i am trying to simply watch the 6 dvd's on my computer. i wached disc one perfectly, my computer wont read disc 2, but it reads all...

most of the time this is a simple lens issue where the cd drive in computer is slightly distorted causing it to be a little more frigidity about playing dvd that are not otherwise pristine I would go to walgreens and buy a can of compressed air give your dive a few sprays and you should have alot less problems like this

hope this helped
please leave feedback

How long should I be able to expect my brakes and rotors to last? I have a two year old car with less than 30,000 miles on it. 2007 Saturn Vue. I don't know what the Green Line is supposed to mean but it...

it all depends on your driving conditions if you have a lot of stop and go traffic everyday you will wear them out alot faster than highway travel. generally a good set of brakes especially original brakes should last about 50,000 miles if not driven to hard or under extreme conditions, most rotors can be machined atleast once before having to be replaced with new ones unless your vehicle runs composite rotors they will have to be replaced everytime you have new pads installed.

Playstation3 turns on and then turns back off with a blinking red light and has a disc inside

O.K sounds like you could have alot of reasons:, one have you cleaned the intake fan grill, cause it will cause it to run "Hot", WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT RUN IT NEAR A "VAC", that will create Static that will play all kinds of heck with it! use a can of compressed air with it, also check to make sure that your "eye" is O.K. one way you can do this is to run a regular "cd" cleaner disk through it, it will play sound,and (or) music, if this plays o.k. then chances are your "eye" is on track,if these two help, but the "problem still happens from time to time, invest in a small fan, (like the clip on kind), and point it towards the clean air intake, this should stop it from running "hot", make sure you keep your games "clean", a good way is to just squirt some dawn on the bottom of the disk, (and Gently) rub it around with your finger, then under cold to WARM water ONLY, no HOT, rinse the game and "pat" it dry with a towel again don't rub, let me know if this helps, happy 4th, and god bless

Issue with trying to play mpeg2's on my computer.

I think the problem is either software related, or is the disk itself. Firstly make sure you have all the proper mpeg-2 decoders. I'd assume you do, but looking for an update for whichever software you use to watch the dvd may help. You should also troubleshoot the software by trying an alternative program and seeing if that helps. (if you use VLC, try cyberlink, etc.) Secondly, there is a chance the actual distortion lies on the disk itself. You could narrow this down by trying the disk on a dvd player and the dvd rom, paying close attention to where the problems arise. If the dvd player and dvd rom both have trouble with the same section (or if the dvd player freezes in the same place the dvd rom starts to flake) the problem may be the disk. In either case, I highly doubt your computer itself has hany flaws in it. It is either software, or the disk itself.
