fault with HD, Albatron 30" LCD TV Model LWX-30AMS-1


Standard Member
Hi all.

I've tried searching for info on the 30" LCD TV/Monitor from Albatron.

I bought this second hand about a year ago with about 18 month warrentee on it.

I've recently bought a PS3 +component cable to test the HD.

I've found that there is no display on Component one (which when pressing info on the tv remote says 1080i). However this works on the 2nd component but can only get 476i(apparently standard) resolution.

I was told by the person I bought it off that I need to configure the component one for HD(don't believe him however, and the company who sold it him are out of business and the manufacturers haven't replied to email.

Am I chasing a lost cause, as this still works and only cost me £250.

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Have you tried resetting the PS3? I don't own one myself but have heard of similar problems - I think you hold down the power button for 3+ seconds and it should pick up the connection.

Hi DrugstoreCowboy.

Sorry, forgot to put that. Yeh I tried that and even took my ps3 to a friends house and it did output the display at 1080i.

But on mine it just gives me a blue screen which indicates no display on the compo 1.
