Top and bottom of screen cutoff on all aspect settings

I own an HP model LC4276N LCD TV which has good color and a clear picture,but the top and bottom of the picture is cutoff. I have tried all the aspect settings but the cutoff is the same. On an ordinary tv the vertical adjustment would normally take care of this problem. There is no such adjustment on this LCD. The unit is one year old.

There are several different zoom modes.  The one you describe is to make a 4:3 image fill the screen. It does this by zooming in (increasing the image size) far enough so that there are no bars on the side, but you lose the top and bottom as a result. Adjust  16:9 zoom option in your lcd and it will work properly. thanks.

Have you tryed pushing the wide button? This button changes the screen to a panoramic or normal view. I usually have mine set on the panoramic view and nothing gets cut off and it is still a full screen unless you have a movie in that may stretch the picture more and even on the normal mode the top and bottom will be cut off.

Their seems to be a crake in the screen that makes seveal lines that goes from the top of the crake to the bottom of the screem. can this be fixed? or does t.v. have to be replaced?


no home fix for this one.
usually the service crew will replace the whole screen. (but keep the guts)
check if its worth the price to repair. likely replace the whole tv is cheaper.

Ticker along bottom of screen for news channels and sports channels is being cutoff along the bottom. That is, the ticker moves right to left and I can read it but the bottom 10-15% of the letters is...


Hi,

I might need a little more detail to solve this problem - I suspect the problem is an incorrect setting on your cable/satellite receiver (assuming you are using one), but let's start with the TV.

Firstly, switch the TV on and select a channel where you can see the ticker. Then press the "FORMAT" button (above the red REC/CONNECT button) on your Mitsubishi remote control. This will change the screen aspect ratio and the current setting will be displayed on screen. Each time you press the FORMAT button the screen size should change.

The screen aspect ratio settings for your TV are STANDARD, EXPAND, ZOOM, STRETCHED and NARROW. Press the FORMAT button repeatedly until "STANDARD" is displayed on the screen. If the ticker is still cut off, you need to change the aspect ratio setting on your cable/satellite receiver.

Please note: If the TV will only allow you to select STANDARD, this is not a fault. It simply means that the aspect ratio cannot be changed on the TV because it's displaying a picture from an external source, i.e. a cable/satellite receiver.

You should then look for a button on the front of your cable/satellite receiver or the cable/satellite remote control marked "FORMAT" or "ZOOM". When you have located this button, try pressing it repeatedly until the ticker is both fully on the TV screen and the picture covers the entire screen.

If you don't have a FORMAT or ZOOM button for your cable/satellite receiver or you are unable to set the picture size correctly, leave the TV set to STANDARD and then reply to me with the brand and model number of your cable/satellite receiver. I will then be able to assist you with finding the correct picture settings and give instructions on how to set these correctly.

I hope this helps - please post back here if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Part of the picture is being cut off, how do i


Just called Sony about this same problem...taking your CABLE BOX remote, push the # key on the bottom right of the remote (it also says HD Zoom on mine). You can cycle through 4 or 5 zoom options...make sure you are on an HD channel to see the changes. :)

Picture on Telefunken 72 cm TV expands beyond screen size


Your screen somehow got switched to theatre/cinema mode. There is a setting on the remote that attributes to aspect ratio. Sometimes it is called "ASPECT". Look for it, and press it until your original screen aspect shows.

Picture is cut off


Try setting the set to 4.3 expanded on the aspect ratio. If that don't work try the other aspect ratio settings. That should make the picture fit the screen.
