Picture shown is in 4x3 aspect ratio---try different channels to see if any are full screen or 16x9----set should have a aspect button on the remote but be aware if using a box or even not many programs are formatted for the 4x3 which in this case has black side bars----if left for a very long time in that format those can burn the image into the actual display screen.

I have a 32 inch Akai that does this from the built in DVD player mode I would try to get into the advanced video options on the menu I don't have a remote so I can only advise that far

SOURCE: Screen is stretching on each end

Sounds like the display is in a mode which is sometimes called "Horizon", where they seek to fill the entire 16:9 screen with an image which is originally 4:3 by leaving the center of the image mostly alone and stretching the ends out horizontally. If your remote control has an "Aspect" button you might try pushing that a few times to cycle through the various settings.

Fault with its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

I have a sceptre x42gv komodo 42 lcd tv for about three years, and lately the tv has had problems recieving the signal from the hdmi port to the DVR. it would show the picture in a very very dim light with...


Check the TV with another HDMI stuff, like a DVD player or a playstation 3 or something. If it still gives you the same problem then you know it's the TV. If it doesn't then it means something is wrong with your DVR. If it's the TV most likely you'll need to open it up and see which part is broken. A simple diagnostic is opening the back and seeing if any capacitors are blown. If those small capacitors are bulging that means they're toast and needs to be replaced. I know that you can also buy parts from Sceptre, so maybe see which part is broken and buy it from them to replace it?

Go to ebay, type X9g kimidi logic board. Usually, some seller might have pulled working parts from other monitors and sell them individually. If you cannot find them, google "buy x9g komodo logic board". Some website, I'm quite sure will sell them.

To me it sounds like the bulb is having a problem with powering up. It may be an issue with the power adaptor or the outlet it is plugged into. Have you tried to plug it in, in other outlets?
