I have a Sony Bravia KDL 19L4000 set. This has worked fine,

I have a Sony Bravia KDL 19L4000 set. This has worked fine, except that the picture format is now 'stuck' in wide-screen letter-box, with black lines at the top and bottom of the screen. I have tried to correct this through the screen format change options via the remote control, but a black box comes on-screen saying 'feature not available' Is there a simple explanation/remedy for this please, or do I have to get it to an engineer. The set is out of warrany

The picture and sound on my flat screen JVC keep cutting out

The picture and sound on my flat screen JVC keep cutting out and then reappearing, picture first and sound about three seconds later. It happens every five minutes or so, some times more often.I have tried re-tuning and checked the settings but no improvement has occurred.The digital de-coder on the set is already u/s and I feed the signal through a DVD player.Could it be a transmitter problem? We are served by Heathfield which is only about seven miles away as the crow flies but not in direct line sight.Any suggestions?

Hi - I am writing to you from France, regarding a 5 year old

Hi - I am writing to you from France, regarding a 5 year old SONY KV-21CL10B, BEAB approved TV which is playing up. It is connected to a satelite disk through a TONNA decoder (SAS500) and we have had no power cuts or similar to explain why suddenly it is not working. First the TV suddenly lost the sound in the middle of an emmsion, only the slightest whisper could be heard when the volume was at full. I tried to 'rebot' the decoding box by unplugging everything and then after a couple of minutes reconnecting all the leads to the mains - This sort of worked: Now I have full sound but no picture. I have tested the TV further by trying to play a DVD, this too leads to sound and no picture. I should be really grateful for your diagnosis / advise as the TV is out of guarantee, and I speak only basic French so will have problems assessing what a local repair will say to me. Thank you for your understanding and hope to hear from you, Babette

My 40inch Samsung LCD is just over 12 months old, but as I

My 40inch Samsung LCD is just over 12 months old, but as I have been out of the country for half that time, it has only had 6 months use. It has taken (two weeks after the warranty expired) to turning itself off, sometimes up to 5 times in an evening. I know it is not the Digi-box, as that is hooked through to another tv in another room, and the program is still picked up there. The problem has been isolated to the tv itself. If I simply turn the set off, and then back on again, the picture and sound return. Any suggestions as to the problem? The store I bought it from (Currys) are not interested, and Samsung have simply told me to take it to a repair agent, and suggested that as I live in Wales I take it to the nearest one to me - the other side of Bristol!
