LONG post but please read...I'm desperate!!!! LOL
Am I asking for too much out of a TV that cost me $650 Canadian, or should this damn thing be sent in for repair!
I want to hear all the suggestions I can, no matter how crazy they may seem! :rolleyes:
Okay, I bought a JVC television 4 months ago. The model is AV-32F476.
The picture quality is great, couldn't be happier...but there is one thing that is really bugging me. It seems to "bloom" pretty badly, but only sometimes. I can't figure out what makes it so bad one day, but not that bad the next.
And I'm not entirely sure it IS blooming...maybe it's something else. It's really hard to describe but the image changes size/shape sometimes, mostly when it goes from bright to dark or visa versa. For example, if I'm watching an NHL game on TV and just fix my eyes on the superimposed score board, I can see it changing size constantly as the camera moves up and down the ice. I think because of the white ice.
But it's weird, it looks like any colors on the screen try to 'run away' from any white on the screen. I have a service call in but they want to come and pick my TV up next week. I'm not sure the problem is THAT bad that they need to take the TV away for a week.Especially since they may not even notice an issue when they have the TV. However, this is the only place in town that actually gave me a straight answer. Every other place tried to blame the sattelite provider....well DVD's do it too...though not nearly as bad. But again, in Widescreen most of the screen is black.
Does anyone else own this model or even a JVC with similar problems??
TO NOTE: The image problems completely go away when I turn the TV to "theatre" mode....however, the picture is total crap...it's WAY to dark.
I know the contrast is always set WAY to high and that can cause it, but I calibrated using the Digital Video Essentials disc.
Any other ideas??
Service menu tweaks?
Oh, and I emailed JVC a month ago. No response. That's quality. I knew I should have bought the Toshiba. My girlfriend thought the JVC looked "prettier". DOH! :(
