Re: Plasma TV picture problem

Normallly, if the format button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

Hi, My Samsung hp s5053 plasma is broke anyone can help me please!

A TV repair shop is your best bet - the problem is likely the power supply - check the fuse.

I have a 550 series plasma Samsung Tv 54''.. I cannot get the picture to pick up for example the football score at the top of the screen, nor the NASCAR readout at the top. I get a piece of it but can't...

The problem may be not in your TV but in your receiver, if you use a cable or satellite receiver. Sometimes those also have similar settings for picture mode - it's rare, but I've seen it.

If not, then it must be tv's zoom mode is just set to something other than "standard".

It appears that the Main bd is bad. Try using Component cables instead of the HDMI cables and see if there is a change. If there is a change to normal picture then try another HDMI cable. If the problem returns then replace the Main bd. There three Main bds for this basic model number. You will need the version# found on the right side of the set to order the correct bd.

Picture too big

It seems as if your tv is in "crop", "Zoom", or "full" mode. Select letterbox, normal, or full-screen mode. Look in the manual for exact instructions.

Works fine now but only have a 90 day warrenty on the parts.

Philips 42PF7320A cropping issue


When using a hd connection on a philips tv and (I am assuming this is the case) the tv disables the format features on the tv and only lets you select widescreen and automatic, if you are using hd adjust the picture size from the cable/satellite box, look for it in the box's menu system or on the remote, it is usually labeled, aspect ratio, zoom, format or something to that nature, hope I helped you
