Question about Zenith D32D51 32" TV

Screen Size is Too Big

The subject is pretty self explanitory. The picture extends beyond the screen and I end up not being able to see the top, left, right, and bottom part of whatever im watching. This is perticularly annoying when watching movies which require subtitles... If anyone knows a way to fix it, Id be grateful for a solution. Also, Ive tried messing with every setting there is in the menu but nothing works.

Re: Screen Size is Too Big

There should be a vertical height adjustment control potentiometer near the vertical output IC on the right side of the PC board near the front section of the TV that can be adjusted to shrink the picture vertically. Be careful not to short anything out or getting yourself shocked in the process if you decide to try to adjust it yourself. Good luck. This chassis has also been known to have bad solder connections in that area also, so don't man-handle the printed circuit board roughly.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.

You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.

The picture size extends size of screening, cutting off sides of picture.

If it's very wide, can't see ends of graphics and etc. on screen then it has a defect. It's called over-scanning. That is not an adjustment. It's likely an internal problem. That means a shop repair. It doesn't normally happen with digital sets. If your TV is more than ten years old it's time for a new one. If it's less you need to get an estimate for the repair. It can be repaired but it's usually not feasible with older sets due to the cost of the repairs. You will be better off buying a new set if it's an older one.

Picture on Telefunken 72 cm TV expands beyond screen size

Your screen somehow got switched to theatre/cinema mode. There is a setting on the remote that attributes to aspect ratio. Sometimes it is called "ASPECT". Look for it, and press it until your original screen aspect shows.

Picture and text extend beyond screen

Your tv needs to be put into service mode with the original Sony remote control and then set the vertical\horizontal size parameter to the correct values and then burn the new settings to memory
Google " sony tv service mode " and you should find the procedure. Good Luck! Write back if you have problems.

Picture too big for the screen

If you are using any type of set top box weather it is a cable box or something along those lines, You are out of luck. The formating is controlled in whatever box is connected to tv. So to format the screen size keep this in mind. Cableboxes usually only let you adjust for 1080i and widescreen. But aspect is subjective to how they send the signal to you. Also make sure you hookup a HDTV cable box or I recommend Dish Network to this set because it is easy to operate the formating using the button on bottom left of remote. " * " STAR button is great. ALSO the DVR is larger and you can run the 2nd TV off the same box although it is Standard defination, the 2nd remote is very handy because it talks to the box via RF signals, which means no IR or line of site problems. Its awesome. If i can help you further. don't hesitate to email back. Thank you and have a good night. Jay
