Facts That Will Help You Fix An HDTV

By Benji Logan

A damage HDTV can be very difficult. Before you leap in to findings and begin having a panic attack, take a moment to assess and appear into these facts since you can actually do some thing about this.

The best way to know if you got a quality HDTV product is by testing it in front of the salesperson before buying it. But if certain problems and issues about your HDTV starts to materialize in the future, don't freak out and I'm not saying that you should just relax, but some problems can be fixed and all you need, is a little know how.


Wireless devices that are connected to your HDTV takes a little bit more time for the screen to catch up and process the image or this is better known as 'Lag'. Using your gaming console can contribute to lagging. Lag is significant when using wireless gadgets, like; the controllers to your PS3 or XBOX360. Fix this by clicking the 'Menu' button and go to the 'Game Mode' of your HDTV and adjust it from there. Try playing again and see if there is any changes in the lag.

Picture Distortion

A damaged HDTV has many picture quality setbacks. And these are the following problems:

Mosquito - This is when the picture is filled with dots or noise. The main problem here is not your HDTV but the broadcasting. But if you want to correct this problem, it will cost you a lot. You will need to buy an outboard digital noise processor, like the Algolith Mosquito HDMI.

Unnatural Colors - The tones and shades of colors in the picture is unrealistic. Fix this by choosing the 'Standard' or 'Movie' mode in your HDTV. Don't forget to adjust the color, contrast and brightness option for better picture quality.

Pixilated Picture - This is when the picture is breaking into pixels and turning into these horizontal stripes that continuously goes up. This is caused by low level digital signals that your HDTV is receiving, that are constantly dropping in and out. Ask your cable provider to fix this problem or you can buy an inline amplifier/preamplifier to boost the signal strength.

But there are more of these picture distortions that are far more severe than what I have listed above and needs to be seen by professional repairmen. These such problems are; Burnt Edges (Although if not severe you can still adjust the sharpness of the picture) Crawling Moss, where the image is almost unidentifiable. Or the edges of the objects in the picture tend to burst into bright colors. These problems are very severe and you need professionals to fix them.

Backlight Problem

If the backlight in your LCD HDTV is too bright it can affect the picture. To adjust the brightness of the backlight, go to the 'Menu' option and choose 'Picture' then 'Backlight' and start correcting the problem.

Power Supply

If your newly bought HDTV doesn't turn on or the power supply isn't properly working then I suggest that you return it immediately and have the manufacturer figure this out. Because letting a mechanic fix your HDTV can be very expensive, this is relatively easy to do, so here's what to do;

First; Take your HDTV apart, this might sound threatening but it's fairly easy to do. Just don't forget to remember where the screws go, so you can put it back after you're done.

Second; If the problem in your HDTV is the power supply, the capacitor or capacitors are surely the ones that are not functioning well. But how do you find them? Easy, they are small tubular 'blue' in color and are usually located at the right side of your HDTV.

Third; How do you spot the defected one? Find the capacitor with a ruptured casing or a bulging capacitor. Replace it with the same capacitor that you have taken out, but of course with a newer one, make sure they have the same serial number. And the power supply to your HDTV will be working just fine.

Taking a damage HDTV to a repair shop can cost you a lot of money. You don't need to be that skillful to fix certain problems; you can even see some tutorials on the internet on how to use a soldering iron if you don't know how to use one. It's as easy as this.
