Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Picture not to edge of screen

My picture was full screen then I got a HD receiver. when we hooked it up with the HDMI cable, it works great but the picture is smaller. It is short on the sides. This is a rear projection 52" tv. I can't seem to bring up the aspect button any more, it was working before the HDMI cable.

That is because you are watching the picture in the 4:3 aspect ratio. This is normal when you are watching a channel that is being broadcast in 480 or digital. But once you tune to a station that has 1080 or at least 720p which is true high def then the picture should expand to 16:9 aspect ratio. It will switch between the two automatically as it determines what type of signal it sees. You can force the resolution to change by pushing the format or aspect ratio button on the remote but you will lose picture quality.

My Sony Projection tv is HD ready, but when I connect the cables from the HD receiver, I have a black screen. Thank you Kevin Davis


myrtle1996,

With so little information I will have to make alot of assumptions to help you. Are you hooking up a HDMI cable? If so it is straight forward. Plug one end into the HDMI connection on the receiver and the other into a HDMI port on the TV. Note the port designation (HDMI 1 or 2). Enter the menu on the TV and change the input to the proper HDMI input. This should make the unit work.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.


Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

Hooking up from hd receiver to hdtv ready projection tv. what cables do I use? vga or rca component red, blue, green and sync white/black? My hd receiver has output of :hdmi, rca component, s-video ,...


This particular television puts you in a tough bind - you can use Component cables in AV-1, but you won't be able to get HD. Or you can use the Component cables in the right-most component slot (AV-4), but since your HD Receiver probably doesn't have V/H Sync connectors, you may get a rolling picture. Try the component cables in the right-most slot - if the picture doesn't roll, you're in business.

Once again, I doubt that your model # is a 60pp9202, since that model doesn't have a VGA or DVI slot. If the picture rolls after trying the above, you will need to purchase a HDMI-to-DVI-D cable and hook it up from the HDMI output of your HD receiver to the DVI slot (that looks like a VGA slot) on the back of your Philips or Magnavox.

I am wondering what the best cable option is to hook up my new Samsung 50" Plasma 720 to my Direct TV HD/DVR Receiver


Your best cable choice is going to be HDMI, but for heaven's sake don't be suckered into paying an enormous amount of money for an HDMI cable. Any good quality cable will work, you don't need a $100 MONSTER cable, because you won't see a difference in picture between the $10 cable and the $100 cable, regardless of what the sales person might tell you
