Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

My wt-46809 Still has a good picture. It receives its signal from an HD converter box from Time Warner Cable. The other inputs on the tv however don't seem to work. I can't use my DVD or hook up any game systems through the various inputs. In addition, while the HD channels (1000 and up) work, channels 1-999 don't project a picture (only audio). I've never added any HD retrofit to the set, so I'm not sure if true HD is being projected or if the picture is just very good digitally clear SD.

\012TV needs servicing PLEASE TRY THE BELOW FIRST THEN DO A FULL SYSTEM RESET\012\012\012CERTIFIED TV EXPERT HERE, follow this information I provided 3 long solutions to this issue/s Solution 1 Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The first link below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error. Additional information http://www.fixya.com/support/r5093881-lcd_flat_panel_tv_troubleshooting_guide Failed TV and Monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague Parts: www.shopjimmy.com 2 Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc. Please respond if we have found a solution. 3 When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me

My Sony KDL-40XBR7 has developed two problems. 1) Sometimes when changing channels the screen turns green. I can solve this by turning off the set then back on, but what's causing the problem? 2) In the past few days whenever I turn the TV on there are horizontal bands from top to bottom. They are faint and the picture can still be seen. Additionally the picture is ghosted; a second ghost image appears larger and below the original. This lasts for a few minutes then goes away. Of course, the TV

I have a JVC AV-56WP 30 Rear projection TV. The screen/image is very dark and blurry with lots of lines. It looks like I have the cable box hooked up but the TV is on the wrong channel (ie 3 when its supposed to be on 4). It flashes and I can barely make out the picture. It seems to start randomly and disappears randomly as well. It flashes a normal picture periodically but only for a second. What can I do to fix this? I don't want to spend much money.
