Question about Hitachi 42PD9700 42 in. Plasma Television
I have recently had sky HD installed, having had sky+ previously. My
Hitachi tv (model 42PD9700U) has been able to switch viewing so the
picture fills the full screen when watching movies. Now, when watching
certain movies in HD the tv is set to full. This means I have a black
bar above and below the TV. My manual says that the display size in
AV4, HDMI1 & HDMI 2 is set to full when watching in 1080i or 720p.
I have contacted sky and checked the settings there and they are set to
picture viewing 16.9.
Any advice as I am thinking that to get the benefit of better picture quality you lose the benefit of widescreen viewin. Is this right.
Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.
