From the information you have provided failed capacitors in the power
supply is likely causing the problem. The safety circuitry shuts the TV
set down when it detects a problem. This model of TV has over 2,000
parts which include millions of transistors inside the integrated
circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective.
Resistors will change value and burn. Integrated circuits and
transistors can go bad. This can cause other components to become
defective, which can have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail.
Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time
but the part will fail again since if the parts that caused the failure
to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure what is
causing the problem, which parts that are no longer within factory specs
and for proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone
with the correct electronic test equipment and the skills to use the
test equipment. The repair should cost about $250 if carried into a TV
repair shop. A small TV repair shop will often charge less than a large
There are 4 settings for the TV like zoom, stretch, smart stretch, and dot by dot... I personally like dot by dot it has the clear and fitted picture that you might want... Especially with HD chanels put it on the dot by dot setting...
hi my name is Ruan.
what are you using.an antenna or satalite?
Usually the "Theater" or "Movie" profile is best. Use the Menu > Picture settings.
Just bought a 52" Aquos TV 27000/1 newest model for 2008 my husband is putting it up and said the non HD channels don't look real good. Is there anything we can do to improve the picture on the non HD channels?
