Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

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.

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.

Heads are cut off off

It sounds like you may have the zoom mode enabled on the TV source. A lot of HDTVs have settings for how different modes like 4:3 format source video is displayed such as Normal, Full, Wide, Zoom and Wide Zoom. Each signal input may have a different display mode and that is why DVDs look ok and TV does not. Not all TVs have that feature but most of the ones that I have dealt with do.
It may also be a screen centre adjustment in the cable box or satellite receiver.

I hope I was able to give you a viable solution.
