Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Heads Cut Off

I have an RCA Projection TV that is about 2 years old. Last night something happened and now the heads are cut off. We have tried all the menu settings we can think of to fix it and nothing has worked. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate it. Watching shows with heads cut off is annoying.

The repair of this problem will be near to or exceed the cost to replace it with a new flat screen. With TV prices at an all time low due to slack demand it is not cost conscious to repair it.

Peoples heads are cut off on reg tv not in hd

Since your tv is cutting the heads off durring regular or analog signal but not high deffinition sounds to me like you have to set the aspect ratio different or such as going to your picture format from the main screen. Play with the settings from zoom, full screen, no overscan, cinerama and see if this helps.
