Question about RCA P52960 52" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Wierd Looking Video

I have the 4:3 aspec ratio TV. Yesterday my TV started powering itself off and on several times while i was watching it. Now today, the picture looks like you are viewing it through a bubble, with the sides of the picture looking blurred and distorted. It also looks stretched, like it's being pulled from all 4 corners at once.

Probably the convergence circuit, the STK output devices, associated resistors, power supplies, etc. Generally about $250 to repair. Have a service tech come out and check it out, also have them eveluate the condition of the crts before going too far. Good luck

Sounds like a monitor setting that needs to be adjusted. Check your monitor's settings and make sure that it's set to the appropriate aspec ratio setting. 16:9 is standard HD widescreen 1920x1080, 5:4 is for 1280x1024. These are the most common for PC monitors. Hope this helps. if not, comment with monitor model information, operating system and current video output settings. Good luck.

Ratio won't go full screen

Could be a function of the video you are watching. Change channels and see if screen size is restored to normal width.

Is there a way to edit the screen ratio on my iPad 3 HD?

There is no way to edit the screen ratio on the new iPad or any iPad for that matter. They went with 4:3 because the majority of users use the device to browse the internet and read e-magazines or e-books on it. As you know the screen gets cut off when you go to fullscreen or it has those annoying black bars above and below.
If you're looking to watch video do it on a computer or your TV. The new iPad isn't made for heavy video watching IMO.

Is my apex tv AT2702 high def??

According to apex its not and does not have a digital tuner the only way this can be high def would be 720P meaning 720 lines progressive scan.

Your aspec Ratio is 4:3 this indeed is a standard TV without a digital tuner so you will need a digital setop box or a digital tuner.

High DEF is not considered digital its conidered how many lines are displayed on the TV. For example 720p, 1080p .

Vizio 42" LCD with Screen problem

Find the LCD Controller board (TCON). Disconnect the cables from it to the LCD panel. Carefully re-connect them. Make sure the cable is properly positioned in the connector. You may have to do this several times to get it work. The flat cables are a problem.
