The Picture On My Plasma TV is Fuzzy Or Blurry

Last Update date : 2014.02.01

If the picture on your Plasma TV is fuzzy or blurry, chances are you have it connected to your cable box using the composite (standard, AV, Cable) or S-video connections. These are the lowest quality connections.


To improve your picture, try connecting your Plasma TV to your cable box using the Component (Pb, Pr, and Y) connections. If you have digital cable or you receive over the air digital programs, try using the digital DVI or HDMI connections. Examples of a DVI connection, an HDMI connection, and the Pb, Pr,and Y Component connections are below:

Component and DVI connections carry video only. If you choose the Component or DVI connections, you must also connect the Left and Right Audio out on your cable box to the appropriate Left and Right audio in jacks on your TV. HDMI carries both video and audio. If you choose HDMI, you need to connect only the HDMI cable.


Note: If your cable box doesn't have Component, DVI, or HDMI connections, contact your cable company to see if they have replacement boxes with these kinds of connections built in.

Important: If you change the connections you use, make sure you use the Source button on your remote to change to the appropriate video source when you watch your TV.
