How to a get a full screen on a Hisense H5 smart TV


Full screen is a function of the program you're watching. Some programs will never fill the screen completely because of the way the program was originally formatted. Example: You watch an older movie that was formatted for 4:3 aspect ratio. It is impossible to watch the movie full screen in it's native mode. It makes no difference if you're watching the program off a DVD or a cable channel. You can rty filling the screen with the stretch and zoom functioms on the TV, but you will have to live with a distorted picture or loose a lot of the program picture because zoom cuts off a lot.

How to zoom in on info


When TVs first appeared, they had an picture ratio of 4:3, which matched that of most movie screens at the time. Terrified of losing their business, movie studios struck back with "widescreen" films using 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 ratios. When widescreen TVs started appearing, they emulated those same ratios, but many TV shows (and some movies) were still in 4:3---and we were eventually left with a bit of a mess. Canny manufacturers, including LG, have solved the problem by allowing you to adjust the picture ratio on the TV to fit the program you're watching. If it's not set properly, however, your image will look distorted or cut off. A quick bit of troubleshooting can fix the problem easily.

  1. Press the "Menu" button on the remote and scroll down to the "Option" title (it should be second from the bottom ). Then select "Aspect Ratio." You should see a list of ratio options. You simply need to pick the one which fits the show you're watching.
  2. Choose the 4:3 ratio for older movies and TV programs. You should see a pair of bars on the left and right side of the screen. (That's okay: the bars keep the program in the same proportion in which it was filmed.)
  3. Select the 16:9 ratio for widescreen movies and for more recent shows to match their longer width. For some movies, you may see black bars and the top and bottom of the screen. Again, that allows the movie to be shown in the manner it was filmed.
  4. Pick "Set By Program" to automatically switch the LG TV between 4:3 and 16:9 to match whatever show is on at the time.
  5. Select "Horizon" to horizontally expand the image onscreen. It will fill the whole screen---eliminating the black bars to the left and the right---but it may look distorted.
  6. Use the "Zoom 1" option to zoom the image forward. That will eliminate the black bars at the top or the bottom of the screen, though you will cut off the edges of the image.
  7. Pick the "Zoom 2" button to select a midway point between "Horizon" and "Zoom 1." The picture is stretched, but not as much as with "Horizon," and fills the screen, but doesn't cut off as much as "Zoom 1."
  8. Use the "Cinema Zoom" button to enlarge the picture to fit the screen. This option allows you to adjust the proportion to your liking, rather than use the set proportions of the other aspect options.
  9. Exit the menu when you are done and watch your programming normally.

Hi,

Based on your initial post "smack it a bit on the side it would fix" indicates loose connection or more probably a cold solder. Now that it won't come on, then it maybe that the intermittent loose connection/cold solder has deteriorated to the point that there is no longer any connection.

Again basing on the "smack it a bit on the side it would fix", perhaps initial course of action would be to visually check the inside of the TV with particular attention to the connectors and the solder (underneath the PCB) to check for loose or cold solder. Corrective action would require re-seating and or re-soldering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I had the same problem when I accidently hit the remote. If you are hooked up to cable make sure INPUT is on the correct setting -- AV, S-Video, YPbPr1, YPbPr2, VGA, HDMI1, HDMI2, ATV & DTV (see button on TV or remote). Hope this solves your problem.

Display issues, is it going to die?


Most video problems originate in the power supply and not the video boards.
Lack of ventilation seems to be damaging the electrolytic capacitors in the PS's
If you know how to use an LCR meter and desolder the caps, you can determine which ones to replace. The PS feeds all the varius boards in the back of the set. This is the first place to start. If the main fuse is bad, you may have to replace the IC regulator chip too. Hosfelt Electronics or Mouser are good sources for components.
Make sure to replace with 105c rated caps. You may help the ventilation problem by adding several holes on the back plastic panel over the PS. If you have no electronic skills, it is best to hand it to one that has. Good Luck.
