Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sanyo 42" 1080p, picture doesn't fit on screen

I have four automatic settings, two for wide and two for square picture.

The larger settings, ones that fill up the screen (one wide, one square) both cut off the top and the bottom of picture. Game scores on top or movie subtitles are not visible.

So effectively, my TV only shows the smaller pictures and begs the question: why buy a large TV at all?

Can this be fixed so that I can use the full screen?

    I don't really understand. Are some ballgames and TV programs broadcast in wide screen and some not? Or are all broadcast in "normal"?



    And I could find this out myself, but I'll ask just out of curiosity, will DVDs with wide screen on the label most likely fill up my wide screen and still show the subtitles?



    And thank you for the previous answer.

Suddenly the picture is to wide for the screen. How do I format to fit the screen


Most sets have, somewhere in the on-screen menu features, a menu for changing screen aspect ration and size. Sounds like you may have accidentally activated a "Zoom" feature that makes the screen image larger, but cuts off areas on all four sides.

Jvc lt-47em59 picture too large in all aspect modes


Larger as in -- the screen looks fatter. 4:3 stretched to 16:9 or as in Larger as in, screen is longer but thinner? 16:9 / 10 fitting onto ratio 4:3?

Asuming... its the second one -- that ur screen is box 4:3 and the picture is huge 16:9 which is why u need to "zoom out" to get the full picture -- are u sure some idiot didnt mess with the settings and make the tv "zoom in" if it isnt a aspect ratio issue?

... if it is a aspect ratio issue, and ur using 4:3 (small old box televisions) there should be a ratio setting either on ur television OR on ur set top box, that would by defualt with digital tv have wide screen 16:9 -- id suggest finding the settings either on the tv or the set top box or...

just get a bigger tv that supports 16:9 cheap for 50 bucks.

Go to file print preview and at the top of the screen that pops up there is a place where you can bring up a drop down list which lets you choose shrink to fit as well as a wide variety of percentage increase or decrease if this doesn't help go to file>Print>and then click on preferences on the screen that comes up check your printers settings don't forget to look at what size paper the printer thinks you are using and see if your printer has settings for how many pages to fit the document to.

No,13060 resolutions will not support by some tv correctly,will shift whole picture about to 6 inches to the right.That why,must use the PC Control panel to adjust to 1024 for the video to center.For the wide aspect 16:9 ratio,just find another aspect ratio to for expandsion to fit the entire screen.

How to get an undistorted picture without cropping. This is an Olevia, and it is not listed below.


I assume you have a wide screen tv? most TV show are broadcast in a square (4:3) format, on a wide screen television the screen is rectangular, so to fit the square picture on the rectangle screen you have to either crop the top and bottom, or stretch and distort the image. the only real solutions are either to watch everything in the 4:3 format (leaving the sides of your screen blank), or subscribe to HD which will broadcast most programs in a wide screen format with out distortion.

Small picture from player (not wide screen)


Set the all settings to wide, not auto as if the player is set to 4:3 format then this sends a signal to the tv telling it so.Go into the setup menu and choose picture format set to 16:9 or wide. Set the tv to auto and this will keep all picture inputs to origional format. I.E. if it was recorded in 16:9 it will play in 16:9. You could set the tv to 16:9 but it will distort the picture on 4:3 recordings.

Normal picture mode make the sharper picture quality but smaller screen apparance


If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.

I have a T5054 TV and the picture has zoomed in and is way too big, however in the picture settings menu the zoom option is not highlighted in Component mode.


There could be a problem, but verify the settings as listed in the owner's manual as follows:

1 Press the MENU button to display the menu.
Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select Picture, then press the ENTER button.
2 Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select Size, then press the ENTER button.
3 Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select the screen format you want.
Press the ENTER button.
Press the EXIT button to exit.
16:9 : Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
Zoom1 : Magnifies the size of the picture on the screen.
Zoom2 : Expands the Zoom1 format picture.
Wide Fit : Enlarges the aspect ratio of the picture to fit the entire screen.
4:3 : Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode.
Just Scan : Use this function to see the full image without any cutoff when DTV
or HDMI 720p/1080i signals are input.
Press the P.SIZE button on the remote control to change the picture size.


And realize the restrictions as listed:

• In TV, VIDEO, S-VIDEO, and COMPONENT(480i, 480p) modes, all screen
modes can be selected. (16:9 ➞ Zoom1 ➞ Zoom2 ➞ 4:3)
• In COMPONENT(720p, 1080i) or HDMI(720p, 1080i) mode, 16:9, 4:3 and
Wide Fit can be selected.
• In Zoom1, Zoom2 and Wide Fit modes, you can move the picture on the
screen by pressing the ▲ or ▼ button.
•You can not change the picture size when PIP is set to Double.
•When Double ( , ) mode has been set in PIP, the Picture Size cannot
be set.
•Wide Fit can be used when watching a Digital HD (High Definition) signal.
Wide Fit sets the optimum picture format by expanding it both horizontally and
vertically. For example, you can reset the picture in 4:3 format to 16:9. Wide Fit
does not support all external devices (DVD, VCR etc.).


Keep us posted.
