Repaired the convergence and now the image quality is good but the TV seems to be over projecting the screen. The top, bottom and sides of the image are cut off slightly. is there a way to adjust?


Hey! its me again. I think what your experiencing is called overscan. This website might help but if not just google how to fix overscan on a projection tv.

How do I enter the service menu on an Emerson EWF2004 CRT Television? (Pictures of the OVERSCAN ISSUE will be provided if needed.)


Older sets had vertical and horizontal size controls. If you have the horizontal size control, turning it counterclockwise will reduce the size of the picture horizontally and reduce the overscan.

My tv scren has been shrink, how to return it to the regular size. thanks


Try:
Main Menu - Picture - Screen Settings - 16.9 Overscan - ON
This mode displays the image for 16.9 aspect and when on enlarges the image to hide the edge of the image.
Good luck.

White stripe on screen


Unfortunately it seems that each time I turn the tv on and off it resets the screen position and I have to adjust it each time.

I would assume that my set would remember the settings.
Use Picture Size, not Picture fit. Set it to 16:9, instead of Fit To Screen. There's a handy button the the remote for this: P-Size. And the setting sticks between shut-offs.

What you are seeing is called "overscan", extra information that most broadcast stations send, because most old TV's were set to zoom-in/crop the signal they received. So.. with new TVs, like your Samsung, you get the choice between size "Fit to Screen" which is 1-to-1, for pixel-accurate inputs like Blu-Ray and DVD, and size "16:9" which is really "support for overscan", for old, less precise signals like broadcast.

AOC monitor 2436vh does not fill the screen using the HDMI connector. There is a 1 inch black border around the window. Controls to stretch the display are locked out (not accessible) when using that...


The "Best Solution" fixes a problem that is unrelated to the original poster. anononline19's solution is to fix the entire OSD being locked (displays OSD Locked when the menu button is pressed).

Original poster's problem can be fixed by changing your graphics card's "overscan" settings.

Overscan on ATI cards:

Overscan on nVidia cards is currently not supported.

I have a samsung series 5 530 lcd. The picture is to big for the screen. I've tried everything in the manuel. help


Also, Check the picture menus for a pixel-to-pixel or 1-to-1 mode. This allows you to watch an HD signal with no overscan.

Magnavox 37MF337B/37 overscan only sometimes problem


This TV has a pixel resolution of 1366x768p

It will accept a 1920x1080i input from a high def source , but running a PC at 1920x1080i/p will cause the problems you describe, depending on what the PC is sending to the TV, because PC signals are not the same as high def.

Your PC should be set to a resolution as near to 1366x768 as possible. My PC allows 1280x768 and 1360x768. Try one of these for best results.

There are no settings on the TV to solve this problem.
