Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Picture is too tall

The vertical height is excessive. The CNN scroll bar is totally cut off and when playing a DVD the "loading" and "play" at the start is off the top of the screen with only a glow along the left top edge of the screen. Panasonic tech help led me through a sequence with the remote using a vertical line on the screen. This would move the display up or down but would not change the overall height of the picture. I have tried everything in the owners manual but no help. I have tried all aspect settings available with the remote.

Re: Picture is too tall

After looking at the service manual, there is an adjustment for the vertical size, but it is in the service mans menu, and this is a dangerous place to be if you do not know what you are doing. I do have the two part service manual, and if you want to attempt this, you certainly can, but I highly advise against it, as I have seen peeps mess up a TV set royally this way. It should not cost too much to repair, unless the problem is not simply an adjustment and is a part going bad. Good Luck

Yes, if you have the original remote and get into the adjustment menu which is hidden you can adjust width, height, and centering if you want.

Not easy with a older set----look to see if a physical control exists in the set for Vertical size (picture too tall) and the adjustment may only exist in a hidden on screen menu.

Picture is lighter outer edges

Does it happen on every input? Play a dvd, is it the same. If you, you need a repair. Contact the manufacturer for an authorized servicer.

Expanded screen

If it only does it via the coax or cable fitting it may not be the set.

Does it do the same thing when playing a DVD etc?

If problem is on all inputs it is a deflection problem in the set which for whatever reason has over scanned the picture to tall---it suggests a problem in the Vertical deflection circuit of the set (top to bottom is vertical deflection).

My JVC AV-48WP30 picture is distorted vertically to about half the screen height. If I turn the tv on and off a few times, sometimes it will correct itself, until I turn it off again.

Try resoldering the vertical output IC that should correct the issue repeated off and on cycles often tend to bridge the solder connection causeing the set to work untill power is cut off.
