3 Signs That Tells Your HDTV Isn’t Properly Set-Up

One of the best things that happen to the human race is the introduction of HDTV. Unfortunately most of us don’t know that we are watching poorly set-up HDTVs. There are some common problems related to HDTV but they can all be fixed in no time with some simple diagnostic steps. You don’t have to worry if you are facing any of these problems because most of the time they can be fixed with just one click.

Problem 1: Scenes which are dark look grey

Solution: we can quickly configure a new HDTV, just insert in a Blu-Ray or a DVD and adjust the contrast so that the black color in the dark scene blend with the black bars left over from the letterbox. Always remember to go for as dark as possible while keeping the colors lively as possible. You may have to play with both the contrast and brightness settings.

You should also check the pre-set color mode of your HDTV because if it is not in the Standard or Cinema mode you may not get perfect result. The other modes are Vivid, Standard, Cinema, or Games and the chances are that HDTV produces different shades of gray for different modes.

At first your HDTV might look dull; however these are the 2 most important settings in a HDTV as they control the black and white levels. If you are unable to adjust these setting properly than every other color is going to be wrong, too.

Problem 2: If colors are too bright they causes headaches

Solution: Again if the pre-set color mode is set to Vivid color mode which gives a bright out put. This preset mode is designed to make the HDTV’s picture counter and pop a lot of ambient light, which is perfect for a bright living room or a retail showroom. But if it is used in a dark room than it will definitely give headache. Luckily most TV remotes allow these settings to be switched on the move.

Some HDTVs have ambient light sensors which measure the level of the light in a room and adjust its contrast and brightness levels automatically. This setting is turned on by default.

Problem 3: Atif Aslam looks nearly as fat as Abida Perveen

Solution: Most of us hate black bars. But in reality, they are the by-product of a properly configured HDTV.

If HDTV is showing a picture that is not 16:9 widescreen like basic cable than the black bars will appear. Often TVs allow users to zoom in or zoom out on the picture, but it doesn’t works well with HDTVs. What happens is that it squishes the picture form the top and stretches it from the side causing everything to appear fat on the screen.

There is a button on the TV’s remote controls which might be labeled “display mode,” or “aspect,” If not, it’s in a menu. Get those black bars back when they are suitable like non-HD stations. It takes a lot of work to be fit and trim like Atif Aslam.
