Question about Televison & Video

5 Answers

My 32" LCD picture does not include print messages at base of picture. effect is that picture seems to need about one or two more inches of height dimension to include these details is this an adjustment problem and if so will adjustment cause figures in the screen to be "stumpy"? particularly irritating when watching cricket.

    i followed your advice with no . worthwhile result. Tried the 4:3 setting which narrowed the picture and provided the subtitles. BUT There is a black band down each side of the picture about 2" wide each side...thus narrowing the picture.
    I am rapidly forming the view that this is endemic and beyond solution.
    I set the thing to "auto format" which certainly filled the screen with picture...but tends to become more "squat".
    70% of the time I am satisfied...but the subtitles are only viewable in the 4:3 settiing......regards......Keith Fitzgerald.

Hi,
It sounds like you may have the TV in a mode that tries to fit the image to the screen. For example mine has a mode called "wide fit" that exhibits the same characteristics that you describe.

I don't see your make or model, so I can't give you specific instructions, but have a look a your remote and look for a button that may say "picture size" or something similar.

Sometimes the setting is also found in the TV's settings menus.

If you reply with your TV's make and model, then I may be able to help you locate the right place to look.

Thanks!

I see that the problem is with the picture being a bit zoomed so as to cutting off the print messages.. could you please provide the make n model number... anyways all remote controls have the feature that lets the user set the picture size so I'd suggest you try using that too... make n model number would be really helpful

Go to zoom option on the remote control, it most likely was adjusted without your knowledge.

Only boards are sold and no parts- a 32 inch may not have even the boards or be cost effective to repair----suspect main board here.

42 inch Toshiba Plasma TV has sound but no picture, wife heard a small pop when the picture went off. It is about 4 years old. What could be the problem and is it cost effective to fix or replace it.


That popping sound is usually a capacitor or "cap". Depending on what board it was on, would depend on what needs to be replaced. Usually its the main "power" board. I would say it probably would be worth replacing as these boards are generally not that expensive. If you take the back of the TV off, you can look at the boards. Caps are cylindrical and are various heights and widths. However they should have a flat top and bottom. Look for one that has a round top or bottom. Do NOT touch the boards though. Caps can store energy long after the TV has been unplugged and static electricity can damage sensitive chips.

I have a polaroid lcd tv 32 inch. i turned it on today and there was no picture but all the sound was there even with a dvd playing there is no picture only sound i have checked all leads and everything...


Well it very well could be the three color tubes, or power board the problem. BUT before you try that check your HDMI cable. HDMI cables have to be 100% in to fully work sometimes if out just a bit they will produce this issue where you have no picture but sound.
Or try a new HDMI cable, if you don't have HDMI and it's doing it on multiple ports including RCA, RF, HD Component then it's a problem with the tv itself and you'll need to call a repairman.

I have a sony bravia lcd tv of 32 inches bearing the model numner KLV- 32S400A.. the prob is the pictures colour is turning into a negative image after 10 mins of switching on the tv. could you pls let me...


This seems like a T-con board problem as its responsible for several picture functions including color convergence. Or it could be a bad LVDS cable (inside the TV) I can ship you a new T-caon board for $150.00 or take it too your local shop repair shouldn't cost more than $250.00....

On the bottom of the remote (mine anyway) there should be a button that says zoom, you can scroll through settings, wide seems to be the best

Height,width,&length of 42 in tv


The TV itself measures 31.5 x 23.7 x 9.9 inches (WxHxD) with included stand. You want to make sure you have at least 4 inches of clearance for airflow on top of those dimensions.
