Question about Mitsubishi CS-35405 TV

1 Answer

Black bars on top and bottom of screen

I was using the remote control that came with my cable box to control the television, trying to trigger the sleep mode, and something that I hit seems to have put the television in some alternate display mode. The color set up has changed, getting darker, but that I can still change with the normal menu setup. The problem that I have is there are black bars at the top and bottom of the picture. I see no way to get rid of that. Using the same sequence of buttons on the cable box remote only produces the same effect, i.e., if I change the color settings, they go back to this default setting. I appreciate any help on this. (I am not sure if this would help, but the cable box is a Motorola, the remote is model UR4-DCT, and the sequence that triggers this even is [TV], [Menu], [Left Button])

    There is no mention of a widescreen mode in the on screen menu.

It sounds as if you have accidentally entered widescreen mode. Explore the on screen menu to find the widescreen option & switch it back.

    Ok, the other possibility that you can try is the vertical size control. This will be found in the on screen menus, or possibly a control on the back of the set.

    If this fails, then the set has developed a problem in the vertical deflection circuitry & will require the attention of a qualified TV technician.

How do I make the screen on my sanyo tv full- It has a black bar top and bottom


Your TV remote control (not the cable box remote control) would have to have a button that would allow the changing of the TV screen sizes. My Sony TV control has a button called, ' wide', and when pressed will change my screen to either, full, wide zoom, and zoom. Only zoom gets rid of the black bars on my TV. If no button, than the screen size will be determined by the broadcaster.

Black bar on the top and bottom during watching the tv


Hello

If you are watching television and you see black lines on the left and right sides of the screen, check to see if you are watching an HD broadcast or a standard definition broadcast. You can do this by bringing up the TV guide menu on your remote. If the show is in HD, it should take up the full screen. However, if it is not HD, bars will be present on the left and right of the screen. That is because standard definition programing is in 4x3, which will not take up the entire screen.

If the picture you are watching not only has black bars on the sides, but on the tops and bottoms of the screen as well, your "Zoom" mode has somehow gotten off-kilter. Press the "Zoom" button on the remote until the image appears correct. If this does not work, power down the television, wait a few moments, and power the TV back on. The image should be correct now.

If the image on the screen looks stretched or squished, this is because your HD cable receiver is not set up properly for your widescreen television. Press the "Menu" button on the receiver

Green line from top to bottom on right hand side of tv


I am assuming that this is a green bar and you are connecting your cable box to your tv with an hdmi cable. If this is true you need to walk over to the cable box and turn the power off (not with any remote control but directly on the unit). Next press the menu button that is on the unit. The hidden menu will come up on the screen. You will see Color System as one of the menu options and you can use your remote control or the down arrow on the front of the cable box to scroll down to Color System. Next use the right arrow or the left arrow to change it from YCC 4:4:4 to RGB or vice versa. Then turn on the cable box and voila the green bar should be gone.

I'm watching football and cannot see the top score


You should adjust the aspect ratio on your cable box. Depending on your cable company there should be an aspect/HD zoom button. If this does not work go into the TV settings using the "menu" button and try to find a reference to aspect. Make sure it's set to 16:9 normal vs. stretch. You can contact Total COntrol Remotes (www.totalcontrolremotes.com) for help with this kind of issue.

Now using an hdmi to dvi cable - screen size has reduced


Your digital box should have aspect settings as well. When watching HD TV and or movies there is a possibility to get the black bars on top and bottom. It all depends on the ratio it was filmed in.

Picture too large for screen


If the television is connected to a cable box such as Time Warner's HD box, the picture mode can be changed by pressing the '#' on the cable box's remote keypad (where the channel numbers are). This cycles the picture between zoom, normal, and stretch which could be cause of your problem.
