My tv the picture is bigger than the tv screen

When I am in HD, the picture is bigger than the TV. For example, you only see the "H" in the HD logo and on the left side, you only see half of the words.

    akai pt4298hd projection screen,this tv is a hd monitor no dtv tuner the aspect ratio is set when a hd device is connected via component [no hdmi input available on tv]. At this time it is connected to a sat hd receiver via component,aspect ratio is set at 16:9 ,the tv is set on wide screen and picture color on dinamyc.Something that I found is that the perfect focus just scans up to 44%. This tv has been in the shop before I owned it. I was wondering if this tv has any kind of adjustment inside.
    Thankyou for your time.

    I am having the same problem. It is an AKAI, model # pt5299hd projection TV. We have it set to 16:9 and checked the zoom. The picture is too big. When we hit "Info" on the DirecTV remote the info box is half off the screen. It's almost like a computer screen, where you can adjust the display to be concave or not. It has a wave to it, like an upside-down U but very slight.

It sounds like you have hit the zoom button or your aspect ratio isnt right. the aspect ratio should be set to 16:9 (if there isnt a button for aspect ratio, change it in the menu) and there should be a zoom button on your remote and just keep hitting that and it should return to normal. If neither works, post your tv brand and model and i'll try to find another answer

Have you tried hitting the format picture button on your remote control. Seems the picture is in zoom mode. If you have a cable box for HD Channels then look on the remote for a button (format) or Screen size.

Rear projection - convex distortion / ghosting / expanding screen


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
