When I turn on my TV there is an 8 1/2 inch black screen located on the left most side of the entire TV. The channel being displayed is bascally shifted 8 1/2 inches to the right, so I am unable to see the full screen. Has anyone encourtered a problem similar to this on their TV. Secondly does the TV have a manufacturer's reset feature where one can basically reset their TV back to the original manufacturers setting?
I tried playing around with the setup feature under the CC mode and managed to create a black screen almost covering the entire screen. I managed to reprogram it back to the same original problem I currently have and is now wondering whether somehow my problem was created by someone playing around with the set up mode on the TV....or it is possible that I may have a convegence problem?

Picture shown is in 4x3 aspect ratio---try different channels to see if any are full screen or 16x9----set should have a aspect button on the remote but be aware if using a box or even not many programs are formatted for the 4x3 which in this case has black side bars----if left for a very long time in that format those can burn the image into the actual display screen.
Most LCD and PLASMA sets use two boards (some combine them into one board) that drive the Display Panel (the entire front screen unit) so I would suspect one of yours is bad.
The other unpleasant possible cause is where the left board is connected to the Display Panel (entire front screen unit) you have a problem inside that Display Panel and that is fatal as there is no way to get INSIDE the panel---it can cause both lines and a dark picture on one side of the screen.
Simple answer. No. But please read on . . . Full HD Freeview, i.e 1080p does not exist. The four HD channels currently available on Freeview all transmit at 720p resolution. There is insufficient bandwidth in the TV transmission range for the HD channels to transmit at 1080p. It could be done, but it would be at the expense of other channels.
Your TV, however, is Full HD, as indicated by the 1080p in the specifications. This means it can display a full HD picture from a device which outputs at 1080p resolution. Devices which generally output at 1080p resolution include Blu-ray DVD players, games systems and PCs.
When viewing a Freeview HD channel, your TV will display the picture in 1080i (interlace) resolution. This is not true/full HD. The transmitted picture comprises of 720 horizontal lines and the software inside the TV is creating the additional 360 lines and interlacing them between the 720 lines from the original transmission in order to create a 1080 line picture which fills the entire screen.This process is commonly known as 'upscaling' and can cause deterioration in the overall picture quality, most noticably on poor quality, cheap TVs.
you have to take in affect on how old is the tv if you have had it a few years then the screen is going out and will only be a matter of time before it goes all the way out and you will be buying a new one if it not old and its one of the newer flat panels then its the signal that the tv is receiving if its hooked to a digital antena then you only get max of 720 from it on certain channels no matter if the channel or channels are showing hd with out a hd source your tv will not show better then that i have a 42 inch hd flat panel and use a antena and the best i get from my hd broadcast channels certain times will i get true hd like when the news is showing or when one of the series that was filmed in hd is on other then that i only get a 720 picture instead of a 1080 most commercals are not film in 1080 but in 720 max and i dont know why makes no since

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007 Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago
I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me. Add a comment

WOW! It works!! The picture on my Magnavox (aka Philips) 37MF321D had shifted to the right. I figured I had a big repair bill coming up soon. But hey! Just used the TV remote as described by "Guest', and re-centered the picture to the left. Wallah! Thanks ""Guest" whomever you are! Reply
I'm not a tech person, so take this for what its worth. I had the same problem with my Vizio and my Time Warner Cable HD/DVR box using the HDMI cord connection. HD channels were always fine, and non HD channels were fine until I went to an HD channel and back. When switching back, the non-HD channels would be shifted to the left as you describe. After much back and forth with both Vizio and Time Warner (each saying its caused by the other), I stumbled across the following fix...
I went into the cable box (scientific atlanta 8300) "settings", under "display," under "output resolution." There was a list including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and "auto select." I unchecked both 480 options and left 720 and 1080 checked. Problem solved. The other "Display" menu settings are as follows: Picture Size = Stretch, Aspect Ratio = 16x9.
Well what may have happened is a bad thing, See if you can find some way of displaying a totaly white pix, and have this full size filling the entire screen. If the side bars are still there this means the CRT's are burned and this is a perminate thing, The fix would be to change the CRT's mabe just the green and the red but they still run about $285.00 each. This was cause by having the set run in a format that DOES NOT fill the entire screen
the light engine is defective and needs to be changed..this set is not that old..contact mitsubishi customer relations to see about having it done under a customer accomodation, as they have had a lot of problems with the engines
The vertical line, in my case, was due to a bad contact on the flexible printed circuit. I fixed the problem by using a piece of a rubber eraser to apply downward pressure on the flexible circuit as shown in the picture. To locate the faulty section lightly push on the flexible circuit from lef to right untill the line dissapears.
