    The setting on the TV is "Full". But the image is getting cut off even on 4:3.

    I will take or make a guess here despite the fact it is unlikely----the set has some type of width issue--could even be power supply related or main board which of course controls what and where things get to the display unit.---rare but not impossible.

    The input is from a Motorola VIP1200 box - it's a PVR.

If closed evenly with a shaded area on each side that is the 4x3 format, I can look but so can you: some of the sets (Toshiba) are only 4x3 and not full screen (16x9) and to boot only work with HD on one input.

480 I or not is not HD.

YOU Using a box of some sort here for this set?

The video portion won't play but audio does


It looks like you've got a plain, old "480i standard definition" TV. The inputs on it will likely be limited to S-Video, RF Coaxial (cable) and one or more sets of "A/V" inputs that consist of 3 jacks - 1 each yellow, red, and white. Without knowing the make & model of the TV I can't be sure which / how many inputs it has. It looks like you're trying to play a DVD. Most DVD players only offer A/V type connections - again - you didn't provide this info so I'm forced to guess. The Yellow jack (on TVs and disc and tape player / recorders almost always provide the higher quality A/V jacks) is for the video signal and the Red & White are always the left and right stereo audio jacks. The cables used to connect devices to the TV have the same colored plugs to make matching them up easier than if they were all the same color. If you accidentally connected one of the red or white audio plugs into the yellow video jack, you will not have a picture. Check BOTH ends of the cable - at the TV and at the DVD player. All three plugs must be connected to the corresponding colored jack.

If it is connected properly, your DVD player might be one that was a more expensive type that offers "480P Progressive Scan" output along with the standard "480i interlaced scan" output. The 480i output was called "standard definition" and 480P was called "enhanced definition" and provided a better picture. If your TV only supports 480i, it will not be able to display a 480P signal. You will need to check the DVD Player manual to find out how to return the output to 480i again. If you no longer possess the manual, you may either Google it or provide the brand and model here so that we might take a look for it for you.

In the event that you are using RF coax (cable) to get the signal from the source into the TV, you may just be trying to watch it on CH4 instead of CH3 (or vice-versa). Try changing the channel up or down one from where it is to see if the picture comes in.

I hope this helps & good luck!

What is the screen resolution to the sharp 32C540 ?


480i is the highest resolution of your tv. The tv has composite, s-video and component inputs in the back. The manual states that with component connections are dvd compatible allowing you to enjoy the highest quality image playback than using s-video. Dvd's resolution are 480i or 480p. I'm guessing it's more 480i than 480p since the tv is a crt tube tv and does not have any of the digital inputs for higher resolutions.

How do I change video resolution from 480I to 1080p on a toshiba 55sl417u??


The video source dictates what it will show on the screen, 480i video input = 480i display.
If the video source is not 1080p, it will not show 1080p. It works the same as your PC monitor, you adjust the resolution at the PC Video card setting not at the monitor.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Hello

Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

InputDTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
Ok.

Adjusting the resolution from 480i to 1080i


Typically TVs will auto adjust to the input signal it receives. If your cable box is only outputting 480i then all the tv will show is 480i. Ensure you have a good 1080i signal going in to the unit and check again

Xbox 360 screen cut off on left side


Ok, I've had the same issue and I was able to fix my problem. I was getting cut off sides in HD mode on my playstation.

I entered the service menu by doing this:

Turn TV Off
Use remote and hit "Mute 1 8 2 Power" (not at the same time, but one after the other)

The TV will come on with the service menu. Enter the 1080i adjustment screen. Write down ALL the values in case you mess up. Adjust the values as necessary to fit your screen. It's sort of like adjusting a computer monitor's image for different resolutions.

Red convergence problem


The problem you have has nothing to do with the cable box installation! The convergence fault was going to happen anyway. Im sure you think the install had something to do with it? My freind, problems do arise with these electronic devices all the time , and just out of the blue. Sorry for your troubles ,BUT if your not a service tech or know the safety issues involved with the repair of tvs now a days, I would call a pro to assist you with servicing this set. As theres Hi voltage inside of sets even when they are unplugged. Good Luck
