2.Turn off other electrical devices in the house one at a time.
3.Faulty cable.

SOURCE: panasonic viera doesn't display computer correctly

I have had what is fundamentally the same problem. I have a desktop PC that I am plugging in to my Panasonic Viera TX-32LZD80. I am using DVI connection plugged in to HDMI port.

The solution is fairly simple; use the Menu button on the TV remote to get to the Main Menu for the TV and then select Setup which should be the fourth of four options. This will get you to the Setup Menu for the TV for the current channel. Look for the Picture Overscan option, it will very probably be set to On if you have the problem of %5 or so of display being missing on all sides.

Switch Picture Overscan to Off.

This immediately should solve your problem. A note of warning on this is that I suspected this was the problem but when I first looked at the Setup Menu I could not find the Picture Overscan option.

If you are unable to find the Picture Overscan option then trying fiddling with the Aspect settings. You will probably find it set to Auto. Switch it to 16:9 and you should find the Picture Overscan option will be available from the Setup Menu.

Hope it works for you.

SOURCE: what does it mean when my plasma tv turns off by

Basically when it turn itself OFF automatically all the time, the TV goes into "Protection Mode". This happens when there is a damaged circuit board inside the need to be replace and turn itself OFF to protect the other ones from being damaged.

A TV service tech will have to look at it to find out which boards need to be replace. There are about 7 different boards in your TV that would cause this problem.

Screen no longer contains all picture that should be viewable.


Check in the menu of the set to see if you inadvertently have set the screen size to a "zoom" mode. There are some sets that have fill & stretch features to make the 4:3 picture full screen and these can cause cutoff of the normal wide screen format when on those channels.

How do you turn off the zoom feature?


There is a "Format" button on the TV remote. Just keep pressing that until "Full" appears. This is the normal setting however I would look at all of them (there is only 4 or 5) and find one you like.

How do u do a split screen


The Panasonic Viera does not have a split screen/picture in picture feature. So I'm afraid you can't actually do that.

The direct tv menu guide is cut off around the edges...how do i fix?


Your TV resolution is not set to the proper screen size for viewing it properly and it probably cuts off your tv shows too and you just don't see it. Press the [FORMAT] or [ASPECT] button on the remote. The option available to remove the horizontal bars is Zoom.

The Picture appears to be zoomed in. Cannot figure out how to adjust picture to fit the television


There should be a zoom feature on your remote press that and it will take you to diffrent modes otherwise its got to be in the menu settings of the tv itself.

Thanks
