Images cut off on top and bottom of screen

The picture is fine but it appears something has happend to spread the overall picture. Those anoying little pop-up ads at the bottom of the screen are mostly cut off as well as pictures at the top of the screen such as the heads on alot programs. It still cycles through the aspects O.K. Any adjustment to regain control of picture size.

    I as well have the same problem. It seems as though the TV is zoomed in always. Does anyone know a solution?

    My PT-47X54 also cuts images off at bottom and top of screen. Has anyone found the solution?

    Convergence works OK, but it seems like I need to adjust the overall vertical picture size.

Classic example of the failure of the high voltage circuit. If you have a Samsung like mine, the power supply has a capacitor (other tv has more than one capacitor) and this capacitor is failing to maintain the 400 volts needed to drive the video circuit/card.

SOURCE: Panasonic PT-47WX53 Horizontal Picture Size

Normally, when I see this problem in the customer's home, I find the main culprit to be the cable or satelite receiver box. The remote for the cable box may have a button on it to change the format or picture size. You may have to go into the menu of the cable box to change the format setting. Hope this helps.

This is the vertical problem,it is a bad capacitor you must replaced all electrolytic capacitor in vertical section and resolder all associated parts there,so it works better again.

Hope it will helps you;

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered


CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

Samsung TSL2793HF - Slight Right Side Pincushion and Horz Line Bottom to Top Until the TV Warms up


Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

Screen cuts off top of heads


Check the menu settings for the picture. You may be expanding the image to fill the sides, in the process, cutting the top and bottom.

Images are too fat looking or spread out on my 22" monitor, how do i adjust so the images appear normal?


You need a video card that will adjust the resolution to the proper proportion. The closest I can get to a good aspect ratio is 1152 x 864.

Widescreen cinema mode


Make sure the DVD player is set to 16:9 screen mode.

If you still get the bars at the top & bottom, then its probably because the DVD was filmed in true cinema widescreen, (21.7:9) whereas the TV is only 16:9.

There may be other settings on the DVD player to expnad the picture out, but you will either lose the edges of the picture, or it will be stretched.

Flash problem with my Nikon Coolpix 8700


Send the camera in to Nikon for a replacement and write a nasty letter. I have the same problem and that's what I did. This is a wide-spread problem. Then once they send you a replacement (that works), quickly sell it on E-bay and buy yourself something that works!

Picture cut off


No adjustment needed on these LCD projection. Your problem is in your setup menu. Your default is now is set ZOOM. That is why the bottom of the picture is cutting off. Go to Menu, setup and screen size or something close to that.
