On the bottom left side of your dish remote, there should be a button that says format, that should help you

Top and bottom of screen are cut off how do we adjust to get screen to fit


Press the "Aspect" button on the remote until the picture looks appropriate. You are probably trying to display a 4:3 ratio channel on your 16:9 ratio TV. You are probably viewing it in "zoom" mode, which does not stretch the 4:3 ratio video, but enlarges it until it fits the width of the screen, which zooms part of the video off the top and bottom of the screen.

How do we get the picture back to normal? The picture seems to be stuck in a zoom mode. The wide button does not fix this.


its probably a zoom setting on your cable or sat box.

sat - push the format button at the top or bottom of the remote to switch modes

cable -
go in to the cablebox menu, go to video settings, make sure its set to 1080i and 480i for 4:3 over ride, not stretch or zoom

My TV picture cuts off on the top and bottom


Check what format you are in. 4:3 is like a regular tv. Sides will be cut off in this format on a widescreen tv. 16:9 zoomed will cut of top & bottom slightly. You want just regular 16:9. No zoom.

Full Zoom Mode Problem


Look on your remote and see if there is a "Format" button, press this to cycle through the different format options, and find one that fits.

If there is not a Format button on your remote, try looking in the setup menus and see if there is an option for formatting or zoom.

Going nuts!!


If you are using Dish Network, while in SAT mode, hit the star key on the remote (also labled FORMAT). It will start scrolling through certain modes: zoom, partial zoom, normal, stretch... etc)

Panasonic PT-53WX42F Picture Problem. Color Distortion.


Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

Aspect Function Not Working


Normallly, if the picture size 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 or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
