From what you are describing, the crystals seem to be improperly firing pixels in your display.
What is your model number? I'll find out if this is a common issue and try to locate some troubleshooting / resolution methods for you as well.
Currently working on my MBA program. I hope to return sometime in December 2010.
oi, it's a 47LC7DF
Is it just me or does that sound kinda bad?
I've only had it for 4 months and it's been like that pretty much from the get go. I hadn't watched a blu-ray movie until I'd had it for a couple of months. As I mentioned before, I didn't notice the issue with games. It's not my principle tv so I only use it a few hours a week: video games or movies. what a bummer.
Thanks for all your help.
If you purchased it locally and it is new, you should ask the vendor for a replacement while you can. This will eliminate a problem with that individual set and maybe point to some internal problem with the LCD panel itself.
In the mean time however, I'm going to search the web for some information. I'll see what I can come up with.
Hm that would be interesting. Might answer why most games are pretty ok. But I was under the impression that a digital signal was either on or off. there really wasn't much degradation related to cables. Intriguing thought, and relatively easy and sort of cheap to test.
Thanks for the input. I think both of the HDMI cables i have are the same brand i think. i'll have to check
As too the above post.
That's kind of scary. What are your thoughts on the cable suggestion?
Guess i might have to contact lg. bummer
I'm afraid I am past the lovely 90 day for local but I believe it has a 1 year manufacturer. I had hoped to get a Plasma but they discontinued the model i wanted just as i had the money to buy. sniff. it had a 2-year warranty. oh well what can you do?
Thanks again for all your help
It is very possible that your HDMI cable is causing this. I hadn't thought of that before Paul brought it up. Here's a good read on cables with a segment on HDMI near the bottom. It might be of some help: Crutchfield - Cables
Doing the cable swap might be a simple and easy solution before trying to return the TV.
I missed this article,
"Both DVI and HDMI cables can carry standard-definition and
high-definition digital video signals. HDMI is also capable of carrying
2 to 8 discrete channels of digital audio, depending on the
capabilities of the source component."---Audio and Video Cables: Does Quality Matter, by Ralph Graves
I honestly don't know if I got the standard-def or not
I read this one, and this is where i based my decision on what cables i got (oops, maybe)
"... You won't see dramatic differences in picture quality among HDMI
cables. Unlike analog video transmission, which can display varying
degrees of picture quality, digital video transmission either delivers
a clean, clear picture or no picture at all. But you'll still want to
choose a high-quality HDMI cable, especially for longer lengths or
in-wall installations. Different cables use different materials and
construction techniques, and some are rated by the manufacturer to
maintain maximum signal quality over longer cable lengths. Some users
have encountered interoperability issues when making HDMI connections, but these are almost never the fault of the cable itself."---Ins and Outs of HDMI, by Steve Kindig
Looks like i mainly picked out the "no picture at all," figured i was safe and ran with it. lol
I will give it a shot and see what happens!
Thanks so much for all your help. I'll let you know what happens
unfortunately that was a non-starter.
$100 Monster ultra 800 cable and I have the same issue that i did before.
I guess it's something else.
So i'll check into what i need to do with lg. see if they'll send someone out to look at it, or at least give me some options. unless anyone has any other ideas.
Maybe i'll see about having someone come out and calibrate and see what they say, but i'm really leery of spending another $200-300 to still have the same issue. Call me pessimistic but i don't know if they'd be straight up at the outset and let me know if they can correct it, or if they'll do their "magic" charge me, then tell me they can't do anything about it.
Thanks again for your assistance though, i figure it was worth a shot. If anyone thinks of anything let me know.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
