Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My church has two Sanyo PLC-XF30 or XF30NL's. I just added a second wide screen monitor to our Song Show Plus projection software (the wide screen monitor shows the software full time) while my Dell 4X3 monitor shows what projected onto the screen. The two monitor setup is working fine. HEre's my problem: the left hand edge of my slides is being slightly cut off. The right edge and top and bottom are adjusted pretty well now. Our computer resolution is set to 1024 X 768. Can you help with the cut-off left edge? Many thanks, Lew in NM

    Ekse requested some information, which I posted as a comment, but he gave me no email address to send it to.

    How can I get information to Ekse?

    I tried the monitor things you suggested, but nothing changed on the screens. It is definitely a projector problem. I even called the software support team and everything on the software is correct. I tried using some of the projector pc menu adjustments: horizontal settings - vertical settings - but nothing corrected the problem. The software support lady suggested a master reset on the projectors, but I could not find one in the projector manual. Is there a universal reset code for the all video projectors?

    I still have the image cropped badly on the left margin and a little on the top margin. The right and bottom margins are fine.

    I found that in my Auto PC Menu on the projectors, that I could change the Total Dots and correct the alignment problem.

    Thanks for your help.

Could you send me the model of the monitors? I think you can adjust the cutoff in the monitor settings that are build in, adjust the screen position or width a little. A model would be helpful and I can answer you better.

    Thanks I got the comment. Sorry I was away.

    Looking into it now.

    The recommended resolution for the display is 1280 x 1024 Since its at a lower setting, the screen needs to be adjusted from the buttons on the front.

    First try a Auto Adjust (c button) and see if it corrects the problem, it most likely won't but try it and let me know.

    Then if the problem is not solved, open up the menu from the A button.

  • Perform monitor reset on "All Settings"
  • Push 'Auto-Adjust' button
  • Adjust the centering controls so the picture is shown fully on the display.

  • If this hasn't solved the problem drop me a comment and lets look into it more.

    Sorry, did you have the problem on your monitor or your projector display?

  • Ekse Mar 02, 2009

    Great to hear.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Where can I download a manual? The www-FromDocToPDF-com link is a bad site, history of malware distribution. Is there an alternate download site?

    to get any user manual go google and type in ---user manual for sanyo dwm-470 3- disc dvd/cd player--- and there will be a site (probably a sanyo site ) that will have a pdf version download

    Audiovox PVS69701 Dual Screen DVD player monitor has blue screen

    I had the same problem, and it seems to be a short in the video cable between the two monitors. I can bend my cable until i see the second screen and then tuck it under the headrest. I am currently looking for a replacement cable. I see it at, but will also check the local radioshack since I need it quickly.

    Small picture from player (not wide screen)

    Set the all settings to wide, not auto as if the player is set to 4:3 format then this sends a signal to the tv telling it so.Go into the setup menu and choose picture format set to 16:9 or wide. Set the tv to auto and this will keep all picture inputs to origional format. I.E. if it was recorded in 16:9 it will play in 16:9. You could set the tv to 16:9 but it will distort the picture on 4:3 recordings.

    Sanyo dvw 7100 is stuck on progressive scan how do I get it off

    You may already have the solution, but I ran into this problem too on my 7200. The way to get it out of progressive is press and hold the play button for 5 seconds. Simple - once you know the answer - I was afraid it would involve navigating through menus you couldn't see.

    Hope this Helps.

    Subtitles on Sanyo DVD Player Model DMW-380

    For the DVM-390 model, the above problem can be due to the TV Guardian (TVG) mode. I would go to the intial setting options and under Language turn the TVG mode to "Off" and see if that allows the subtitle languages to appear on screen.
