Question

How can I improve the picture quality of my TV?

Answer

In order to enjoy the highest picture quality available, make sure that your setup complies with the following conditions:

  1. Connect the signal source using a HDMI cable.
  2. Verify that the source signal is of High Definition (HD) content, which means either 1080i or 1080p video format.
  3. You will only be able to enjoy the full advantages of High Definition content if you connect your external device using a HDMI cable.
  4. If your external device does not have HDMI outputs, the next best option is the YPbPr (also called component or YUV) connection.
  5. Make sure the TV has the latest software installed.

If you use a direct cable connection from the wall outlet:

  1. Check the incoming cable or antenna signal connection to make sure that it is properly secured to the TV's antenna input.

You can check the quality of the signal reception in the options menu.

  1. While watching a TV channel, press the 'OPTIONS' button on the remote control to display the options menu.
  2. Press the cursor down to select [Status] and press the 'OK' button.
  3. The status menu appears displaying an overview of the current TV information.
  1. Although an analog connection does not offer the same quality, you can still obtain an excellent picture if you observe the following guidelines:
     
    1. Check your cables and cable connections.
      • Make all your cables as short as possible.
      • Use high-quality antenna cable.
      • Connect the plugs well into their outlets.
      • Do not use an antenna cable splitter. Splitting the signal will make it considerably weaker.
         
    2. Change the picture settings on your TV. The standard configuration is set to match conditions in a TV store.

You can use the smart settings in the TV menu to set your TV to a predefined picture mode that will give you the best picture quality.

  3. Press the cursor up or down to select the predefined settings according to your preferences.
  4. Press the 'OK' button to confirm.
  5. Press the button to exit the menu.

Alternatively, follow these steps to select the settings that suit to your preferences:

  1. Press the button on the remote control to access the home menu.
  2. Use the cursor buttons to select [Setup] and press the 'OK' button to confirm.
  3. Select [TV settings] and press the 'OK' button.
  4. Press the cursor down to select [Picture] and press the cursor right .
  5. Press the cursor up or down to select a setting.
  6. Press the cursor right to select and use the cursor buttons to adjust/set them according to your preferences.
  7. Press the button to exit the menu.
  1. When the TV picture format is set to [Auto zoom], the picture will be displayed according to the broadcast format. You may experience changes in the picture size with different channels.
      • If you wish to set a specific format, press the button on the remote control repeatedly to select [Wide screen] option or any other format that you feel comfortable with in the list of available formats.
