    Most windows are just a little larger than the screen so that I am unable to see the Windows Minimize, Maximize nor Close buttons. I am looking for a manual and or driver for the Hannspree HF229H display.

    Same thing. The images/windows/etc. carry off the right side of the screen.

    I have wide screen monitor, pages do not fit on it, you have to use slide bars to view whole page. I wonder why I bought a WIDE screen? How can I change it.?

I had this same issue.

Go into the monitors menu, go down to "Image Settings", go to "HDMI Mode", select "PC Mode"

Hope this fixes it for you. It worked for me.

To BobOlsen,

I'm currently trying to solve the stretchy images problem on my parents monitor. I noticed that the left and right edges of the screen were hanging off the edge of the monitor, while there was black on the top and bottom. It didn't fix the stretchy images problem, but changing the resolution brought the entire screen into view. Hope that helps, or that you were able to solve it already.

Why are the movies half screen?


Movies that are created for "Wide Screen" viewing show up in letterbox on your TV. If you go to a theatre you notice it is a big rectangle. To be able to fit all of the widescreen movie on a TV it has to make the height smaller.


Because many people want to see the "complete" Movie, the "Letterbox Format" came about. I do NOT know what the word "Letterbox" actually means, or how that term was chosen. To get the complete Rectangle into that Square, they discovered that they could shrink the entire rectangle to fit that square. Meaning, what used to take 2 inches on your screen, now may only take 1.75 inches. Now a problem arrose. When you shrink the WIDTH to fit your dinky Square of a TV, the HEIGHT also has to be shrunk along with it, or else you're stretching the image as if it was on silly-putty ("Compression"). When the image was shrunk to fit the TV Screen, they were left with a gap at the top and bottom of the screen. So they simply fill it in with "Black". I guess the only alternative was to leave it snowy.

How to get an undistorted picture without cropping. This is an Olevia, and it is not listed below.


I assume you have a wide screen tv? most TV show are broadcast in a square (4:3) format, on a wide screen television the screen is rectangular, so to fit the square picture on the rectangle screen you have to either crop the top and bottom, or stretch and distort the image. the only real solutions are either to watch everything in the 4:3 format (leaving the sides of your screen blank), or subscribe to HD which will broadcast most programs in a wide screen format with out distortion.

Hannspree HF229H will not stay on


railbird56, Common problem for ALL BRANDS of "cold-cahtode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd monitors! Here are your options!!! Cheapest to most costly!! 1. Warranty repair. 2 DIY repair???? 3. Local or distant repair. 4. possible old + cash swapout with Hannspree for refurbished same model?? 5. Trade-in for new wide screen. My best guess on your monitor (no history) is that the unit's SMPS is in partial or full shutdown mode during it's black screen moments. How much do you know about "electronic ballasts" "switch-mode-power-supplys" and how to repair them?? 12fixlouie

Distorted images due to wide screen


Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.
