Morning,I purchased a 50" Vizio 2 years ago in Calgary, Canada. My problem is that the brightness seems to change. I tried to rectify the brightness but it isn't right. When I look at the 'guide' selection on my Shaw remote the small image in the corner is bright but when going back to main viewing screen it isn't.Hugh

I purchased a Panasonic TH50phd8uk ten years ago. It has been a fantastic TV system but recently it loses audio until it is turned OFF/ON and lasts several more minutes then it happens again, and again. I have re-cabled to another TV to verify that it is not the cable service or source equipment.Is this a known problem, or a serious issue? I need to determine if this is worth fixing or just discard and replace.Please advise.

So there must be something with my tv I also have a chrome cast connected ant that works fine.JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The TV Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the TV Technician should be aware of?Customer: I have switched cords also.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the TV Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

I have a Panasonic TV model no. TC-L32C3 with a VCR/DVD player

I have a Panasonic TV model no. TC-L32C3 with a VCR/DVD player also attached to it. Also, a ROKU streamer attached to HDMI1. I want to add a device which will stream the audio to my hearing aid. I have added a INSIGNIA optical/Coax Digital-to-Analog converter to the Digital audio out terminal.While playing antenna TV, I only get a buzzing sound. However, when I play a DVD, VCR tape, or the ROKU, it works as it should.I found a comment on page 38 of the owner's manual, "When an ATSC channel is selected, the output from the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack will be Dolby Digital. When an NTSC channel is selected, the output will be PCM."What is an ATSC channel? NTSC channel? PCM? I couldn't find any definitions for these terms.Is there a solution to play antenna TV with DIGITAL AUDIO OUT to a device needing a PCM input?

We have an LG 55LH90 TV and I have two unrelated questions.

We have an LG 55LH90 TV and I have two unrelated questions. First, we have a Sonos soundbar, sub, and surround speakers connected to the TV with a digital optical cable. The soundbar is only seeing the input as stereo, not Dolby. Consequently, it won't play in 5.1 through the TV. How can I change the output of the TV to Dolby so we can have true surround sound?Second, when watching the image on the screen, some of the image is hidden in the sides. This is especially noticeable when the news stations have words at the bottom of the image. Some of the letters are missing. Changing the aspect ratio doesn't change this. How can we move the image so that this issue goes away?
