First I have noticed on the far left of my screen what looks like two vertical lines that are a tad brighter than the rest of the screen. It happens on all signals. Any idea what might cause this or how to fix it? I adjusted overscan down to 3-5% on the sides, and had to move the picture a little to the right. I also adjusted some geometry on the sides. Do you think one of these adjustments could have caused my problem. This is really bugging me.

Second I have a slight bow on the bottom and top of the screens any idea what number in the service menu will correct this. I couldn't find it looking at the manual.

Third my right side of the screen is a tad darker than the left is this fixable?

And finally this is a really stupid question but can you converge a single tube TV like a CRT projector? I wouldn't think you wouldn't need too since there is only one tube but my far right and left edges look like they need converged.

you guys have any ideas?

thanks,
Justin

My internal Speakers Buzz as if the case is loose.

The speakers only do this when playing loud, and only with low frequency sounds.

Just posting this as an FYI.

This is not a problem for me, as I normally play my sound thru my HT receiver and speakers, but as my current receiver got hit by lightening, I have to wait for my new receiver (Pioneer VSX-1014) to come im.

Thinking of getting the 30" Sanyo but am a little confused on what I've read about XBOX connected to this set using the HD component adapter from XBOX. In a nut shell what kind of a display can I expect? Will this configuration display 480p from XBOX games minimum? Will it display some in HD if the game supports it? I have a SD TV right now connected with
s-video and it looks great.

A better XBOX display is very important to me when considering an HD purchase.
post #334 of 2894
This tv doesn't display any 480i Xbox DVDs or games well at all, vertical green lines, I think if you have any games that are 480p/720p/1080i, it'll work fine.
post #335 of 2894
hmm....i just tested a 480i game (I-ninja) on the 32" and no green lines at all. Is this just an issue with the 30"?
post #336 of 2894
I have the 32", and my Xbox plays DVDs with green lines every few inches. I'm using the component inputs and HD pack. What inputs are you using?
post #337 of 2894
On the xbox, you need to hack your dashboard to do progressive scan, which will then have the dvd player be progressive scan. I use the component inputs.
post #338 of 2894
Yep, I have the dashboard in 480p, but it still plays DVDs in 480i, the info button on the tv shows this info.

Very obvious green lines with the component cables. Its common in this thread.

Folks -

I could use anyone's help here. I purchased the Sanyo Widescreen HT30744 set (30" screen).

I like the set but no matter what I do, there is a green bias in the picture colors. When I use the remote to access "menu" and go to adjust "picture," the TINT control is a single slider. You cannot independently control Red Green and Blue. In order to get rid of this green bias, I have to move the slider so far into the red that everyone's skin looks pink! I watched the presidential debates tonight and John Kerry's hair had a vague green aura to it. Everything has this slightly notable green hue. Its driving me nut. I find teh color and tint control on this set to be VERY basic.

Do other have this problem? My old Sanyo 30" NON-widescreen did not have this problem.
post #340 of 2894
JamesMH, you have to HACK the dashboard, not use the xbox live upgrade. You need a modchip to do it. The hack enables that dashboard AND the dvd player to use 480p.
post #341 of 2894
ProjectZero, ok, I understand now. Thats what I'll have to do then, thanks.

You're the first complaint I've seen about green push. Have you configured the set with a calibration disc? Using the settings I posted early in this thread will take you a long way to eliminating this push (dialing back the color saturation which is way overblown from the factory) and greatly improve PQ.

And don't forget that having your brightness set too high can incroduce color into your picture. First step would be to pop in a THX certified DVD and run through the THX Optimizer.

I hate to ask this, but what is a configuration disk?

Hi all, one of my first (probably first) posts here. I've just been hiding out, but when I saw this thread I decided to buy the TV and see what I like (my goal is to get a Panny L500 projector this tv is just a hold over till then). I have a hacked xbox with the monster component cables and a chromabugged dvd player(which is fine until I can drop a good amount of money on a real dvd player).

Anyway, for me so far on the xbox I've had no issues, but it is hacked with an alternate dash, but XBMC works great and games look awesome too.

I went through the service menu and fixed 90% of my geometry problems(still a little tweaking left i think) and turned down the redpush. I wish I wasn't colorblind, cause I have to wait for a friend to come over to help me get the colors straightened out. The tv looks great, I have Dish running through my SA Tivo(hacked, upped the recording bitrate) though it makes me want to get the new Dish HD PVR soon.

All I can say is for $700(no tax, gotta love NH...) this TV is a hard deal to beat.
post #346 of 2894
so i got my xbox hi def pack and some component cables and i too have green horizontal lines. Sometimes they are bad other times not even noticable. If there is any fix maybe someone can post it. Also another issue im having is the xbox dash board looks like crap, its got a bunch of verticle lines and its a bit fuzzy but when i put a game in it looks fine except for the occasion green line. Any suggestions?
post #347 of 2894
make sure you have the newest dashboard, HD support was not in the first few builds, and from what I remember only the last couple builds support HD.
post #348 of 2894
i have xbox live and ive downloaded all the updates and stuff, its really wierd the games run fine but the dash is fuzzy and looks crappy.
post #349 of 2894
Have you enabled 480p in the dash? I think it's holding the shoulder buttons and clicking the thumbsticks to switch the dash into 480p mode.

holy crap, you rock. That worked but now i still have green and red horizontal lines i hope theres some way to get rid of them. Somone said you could run a reciever to catch the xbox components then run components out to the tv, would that fix the line issue?
post #351 of 2894
you guys think higher quallity cables would fix the green line issue or is it just a fact with this tv?
post #352 of 2894
I literally just picked up an HT30744 from WalMart. It was too good a deal to pass up. Would it be worth my while to pick up a copy of Sound & Visions Home Theater Tune-Up DVD to calibrate this puppy. It appears to be geared towards beginners like myself and my local Best Buy has it for under $15.

Also, as I won't be seeing Comcast for a couple of days is there any cabling I should prepurchase or do they supply everything.

Thanks in advance ...
post #353 of 2894
i think they supply everything, if you have an antenna you can hook it up right now and get a few hd channels. Time Warner is coming out on wedensday for me but im getting like 4 hd channels even 2 channels that my cable company isnt going to provide me with, WB and KCAL
post #354 of 2894
I just bought the Sanyo HT30744 and have been pleased with it so far. However, I do have a question for those that own it as well.

I have a Panasonic RP-82 DVD player (progressive scan and 16:9 enabled) connected to the Component 3 inputs on the TV. When I play a widescreen movie, I see black bars all around the picture(i.e. postage stamp) when the "Pix Shape" is set to Normal. When I change it to Full, the picture fills the left and right sides and doesn't appear to stretch the image any. Is this normal for the TV and if not, is there some setting that I overlooked on either the dvd player or TV?

Also, Does anyone know if this TV shows a 480p image as true 480p or does it upconvert to 1080i? While playing a DVD, it shows 720x480(60P). However, my digital signals show as either 1920x1080(60I) or 1280x720(60P).

Thanks for any input
post #355 of 2894
the digital signals are going to be one of the two that you listed since those are the only true hi def signals. The jury is still out on whether or not this thing does any signal conversion. It is normal for you tv to put black bars around it when it is in "normal" mode. Full is basically showing a widescreen image unaltered. Normal mode is for displaying 4:3 content with black bars on the side.

You know, I wonder what version Xbox you have. From what I remember, the video output chip changed somewhere around version 1.4 or 1.5. I have a 1.1 xbox and with the monster component cables. I have yet to see any weird behaviour with colors, etc. I've played 2 games(both HD, dunno if that would matter) and watched a bunch of avi's and mpg's via XBMC.

I'd say try picking up a set of monster cables from a place that will let you return them open(best buy will) and see if that fixes it.(if it does, return em and find em for as cheap as you can somewhere else =)
post #357 of 2894
Thanks oryan_dunn. Because of the low cost, I wouldn't be surprised if all the signals (480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i) were upconverted to 1080i. Even if they are, it still gets a really nice picture, imo.
post #358 of 2894
ok finally got my set displaying hd. what a picture. and this is all on defalt and set to warm. i just wished my providers here in tulsa stopped displaying everyting in 4:3 but when it comes to actual network broadcasting they do the correct 16:9. i was having a problem with my antenna thinking i was too far down in a hole and too many trees.. but after i tried to put a new coax connector on my cable i noticed the cable i had been using had some corrosion. it was my old sat dish cable before i went with dish. ran a new cable and bam good signal. now i need a rotor but il prob just tweak the direction since i cant get fox.. for all the detractors out there on this set.. dont know about them but i think they have too much time on thier hands..
post #359 of 2894
pen25, I live just south of Tulsa and bought my HT30744 on Saturday. Right now, I am using a $10-15 set of rabbit ears and I get all of the available Digital OTA channels except PBS(KOED). I get a signal strength of about 3/4 for all the channels I get.
post #360 of 2894
well i tweaked the direction a tad and am now getting fox.. i am on brookside so im sitting in a little valley. im down about 100foot behind the ridge that is lewis right there on 44.. as refrence you crest that hill and your level with the camelot.. but i am getting hd.
