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.

    My Sanyo tv is not working. The power light comes on and then starts blinking red.

    I myself had a 55 inch hdtv ready projection tv and the lamp went out in it. It cost me $104.00 plus shipping to replace it. Check out discount replacement parts but remember that if it is a projection tv, it won't last but approximately two years and you will have to do it again.

    Projects blue screen only and not what is on the computer. Do I need to adjust settings? If so how? I have used it several times successfully, but now not projecting what is on the computer monitor.

    Blue screen is usually a default screen when there is no signal. Check to be sure that you have selected the correct input and that the computer resolution is not beyond what the projector can handle. If you still have problems, please update this and we'll look further.

    Yellow band on the edge of screen

    Hi chucri

    This is most definitely not a lamp problem.

    If a yellow colour in either stripes or blotches occur it is a blue LCD polarizer that needs replacement.

    The filters are starting to show their age. This is a normal occurance for projectors and is the result of heat. The filters and/or the mirrors might need to be changed.
