Screen Resolution Problems with Samsung 50" DLP

I seem to be having problems with my Samsung DLP TV. I have a set top box that is set to pass through resolution to the TV, but on all HD channels, part of the screen is cut off horizontally at the bottom (most noticable on sports channels that have "tickers". The TV is set to 16:9 mode. I've checked with the cable company and there's no issue with the set top box. Box is connected to TV using Monster Component cables.

Wondering if the lamp or projector can be adjusted (ie: has it been knocked slightly askew?)

Hi there,

You may have already done this, but check to see if you can change the screen size in the set-top-box settings and set this to widescreen 16:9 to match the tv. You may also have 14:9 as an option too. Also, check your video output settings, this can be changed between RGB, Composite, PAL or NTSC.

Let me know if that does or doesn't solve the problem

Trying to connect dell desktop to my Samsung DLP HL-R5064W tv through vga cable to watch movies. Toggle source button on remote to pc, but receive an out of range message. please help


Hi,

"Out of range" message indicates that the output from your computer to display it from your Samsung HLR5064W DLP TV is too large. You need to adjust the screen resolution settings for you TV. I have attached images of display settings dialog boxes from different versions of Windows.

You may open the display settings of your computer by clicking on START > CONTROL PANEL > DISPLAY. While your TV is connected, click on IDENTIFY button. You will notice that numbers 1 and 2 will appear briefly on your screens consecutively. As the dialog box shows 2 monitors with numbers 1 and 2, click on the monitor with "2" on it. Then, adjust resolution to 1280 x 720 as this is the highest resolution your TV can handle. You may adjust the TV (monitor #2) to be IDENTICAL or to EXTEND the display of your computer. You can also assign it as the main monitor but not recommended. Click OK then try to toggle your computer's display. You should be able to see a display from your TV this time.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.
