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

Samsung, DLP TV 50 inches Model # HL-T5075X/XAA


Samsung just told me they wouldn't fix my tv because it was produced in Nov. of '06 and the only ones they would fix were made in August of '06 or earlier. I am way too angry right now to call the service tech number they so very nicely provided.

Shadow top to bottom of screen on left side about 2" wide...


This can be the sync wheel assy, failure in the drive circuit for the display chip, or an illumination fault. You will have to give the set out for service.

Because the issue is occurring in multiple brands of TVs, mine is a Samsung plasma, the element that is linking all the issues together is the cable and/or SATELLITE boxes. I have actually called Samsung and they disavow any responsibility for the 2 and say that it is a cable issue. I have to agree. THE SOLUTION is to replace the cable box with a new box. I just did this last week and the 2 was gone. So if you are having this problem then i recommend trying the same thing. REPLACE YOUR CABLE BOX and/or SATELLITE TV BOX AND THE 2 GOES AWAY...at least it did for me.

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.
