I just purchased a Dynex DX-26LD150A11 television to replace my failed Toshiba and it only gets about 2/3 of the channels my old on did. Also, the picture, though crystal clear in the BestBuy store, is a bit fuzzy. I am connected to the same coax connection as my old TV. It selects channel by doing an auto-scan, and I have done it a couple of times. I have adjusted the sharpness setting on the TVs menu back and forth with no improvement in the picture quality. Is there something I am missin

Our tv is about 3 years old. We are a Time Warner cable customer. About 2 months ago we started to notice that the picture took a ong time to appear after turning on the set. The sound played for about 5 minutes before a picture appeared. Now the sound and picture are both gone--not sure if tv,s are repaired or thrown away these days as everything is designed to require quick replacement.


I'm sure this is fairly easy to repair. It sounds likely to be a power supply problem, possibly due to bad capacitors. Your original symptoms of no picture were likely to be the backlight controller not having sufficient power to operate correctly. I ... LG 32LC7D Television

This is about an approximately 10-year-old Toshiba DVDVideo/Audio Player SD-4700. Has always worked well. Problem. I am watching TV series The Tudors from Showtime Network.

We have a Samsung LE32A457 T.V which is currently 2 years old.

When I turned on TV after about 1 week of not using it, it took a long time to start up. Then, I noticed a flickering in the picture. I checked all the Picture settings and noticed that I must turn Backlight all the way off or on lowest setting 1 to stop the flickering. The higher the Backlight setting, the faster the flickering becomes. However, the picture is too dark on Backlight Off or 1 and increasing Brightness to 100 does not solve the problem.

LG LC2D Recently my (about five years old) LG 42LC2D LCD television has been blacking out for varied amounts of time. Sometimes no picture is visible for minutes, other times, seconds. This occurs when watching regular cable, not HD, and when watching DVDs, and playing PS3. The sound continues to be transmitted perfectly, so I can hear the audio crystal clear, just no picture. After some time the picture will return, but it is getting increasingly worse - not too unbearable, but I know it will d

Hello, so, this is the situation: I have lost my TV manual and I want to set the TV picture format to 16:9 for permanent, or even better, set it to "automatic". I have the Sony RM-833 remote control for the Sony KV-X2101D Trinitron television. So far, I have managed to change the picture format to 16:9, but it changes back to "Normal" (4:3 format I suppose) every time I switch channel. So, how can I memorize this16:9 format as permanent? Or even make the picture format change automaticall
