Most Common Problems – TV

T.V. something we all have and need nowadays and as we’ve all seen there are many things that can go wrong with them. Now what do you do when your T.V. goes on the blink, well like most of us out there we look for a new one, but what if you could save yourself a few ‘bob’ and not have to get a new one.
Well fear not cause now there is a place you can take your set to and get it back into running order. Here at Mulhalls Repairs we can fix most problems with T.V.’s and if not then we’ll tell you straight up if it can’t be saved.

Some of the problems that we see most often with T.V.’s is stuff that you can fix yourself at home by playing around with the settings or just checking that the cables are all connected correctly.

Video not matching Audio

There’s nothing more annoying than when you see someone’s mouth moving, but what you are hearing is not in sync. You see someone’s mouth say “hello,” but then you hear “hello” after the mouth stops moving. It’s like watching a foreign film with a voice-over. You will want to go into the audio settings of your TV or cable box and adjust the “audio delay.” This should get you back in sync.

Hearing an Echo

If you’re hearing an echo, you probably have a separate sound system, like a soundbar or surround sound system and you have the volume playing both through your external sound system AND your TV speakers. If you have a separate sound system, you DO NOT want to also have sound playing through your TV speakers, as it will always result in an echo, plus you paid for that separate sound system because it sounds so much better than your TV speakers. You will want to disable, mute, or turn the volume all the way down for your TV speakers and only use your external sound system. This should eliminate the echo.

Picture is pixelating or breaking up

If your TV picture is breaking up, cutting in and out, or pixelating (looks like everything is a bunch of squares), then you probably are experiencing a weak signal. Check all of the connections from the wall to your cable box and from the cable box to your TV to ensure that all connections are tight. If you’re still experiencing issues, you’ll need to contact your cable or satellite provider.

When none of these work then you can give us a call and we’ll give it a good look over. Sometimes these things come down to a connector on the inside being loose or else a wire disconnected and these are things that are easy for us to fix.

But then you have the major problems which involves the chip board and most places won’t even touch them in that case. But we happen to have an engineer on staff who can get in there and get them back up and running for you.
So what ever’s troubling your T.V. Just drop into us on coach road Irishtown Kilkenny and we’ll do what we can to sort you out.
