Support & Equipment Guide

Solutions and recommended video hardware for your Tap TV system.

General Troubleshooting

If you’re experiencing video issues with your Tap TV system, begin by making sure all cables are correctly connected and restarting your Tap TV unit.

You should also check the Installation Guide for your particular product to make sure that it has been installed correctly.

TV Configuration

If you’ve verified your hardware installation and cables and the issue is still occurring, it’s possible that your TV screen’s configuration options are the problem. Issues related to TV configuration could include:

  • Screen flickering
  • Screen strobing or displaying polygons
  • Incorrect colors being displayed
  • Picture not displaying fullscreen

To troubleshoot a persistent display issue with your TV, here are some things to try:

  1. Enable “Video Game Mode,” if this is an available setting on the TV
  2. Disable any Contrast or True Motion settings on the TV, such as Automatic Compensation, Contrast Detection, Dynamic Contrast, Light Detector, Motion Detection, Motion Interpolation, or Motion Smoothing
  3. Try connecting your Tap TV unit to a different TV to see whether the same issues occur

For information about how to check a TV’s settings, see its Owner’s Manual.
