    I just spoke to a repair man who said that one of my kids may have pushed a button. He suggested unplugging the TV from the wall altogether and leaving it unplugged for at least 10 hours, then plug it back in and see if the tv reset itself. If it doesnt he will come out to look at it and I will tell you what he says. I am going to try it tonight.

Have you tried resizing it with the button again ?
some channels just will not look as good in a zoom or aspect ratio when they are older recorded movies that are not digital recorded or in HD ( high definition )

    have you tried to unplug the set from the wall for a few min. ?

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    I just seen your other post , do you still have the concaved screen also ? because this is caused from the convergence IC's failing and or resistors on them .

    is this what happened to your tv set ?

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    if you can solder , then resoldering of the pins on the convergence IC's and or look for the protection fuses (looks like a tan discap capacitor) for the convergence IC's . the convergence IC's will be on the big heat sink on the main board ,

    when it was moved a solder connection could have came undone and just needs to be soldered again , and if it did it may have also burnt a protection fuse as well

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    if the pico fuses for the STK IC's are blown , then replacement of the IC's and checking of the resistor values on them will need to be done.

    the STK IC's are not exspensive but having a shop replace them is. $400 or more for a shop to replace the IC's AND pico fuses and or resistors if needed

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    the STK IC's , pico fuses , resistors can be bought online or at a local electronic supply store

    you can cross reference you STK IC's here$$Search?OpenForm

    example of STK function

    hope my help has better served you and can be rewarded with a better rating , and if you need help in doing this repair , I will be happy to help

How do I reset big screen tv to 1080 on remote

You don't.
It should automatically switch to 1080 when and only when there is a HD signal present. Otherwise it will be in 480 and you will need to use the format button on the remote to change the picture size. If it does not switch to 1080 and you know for sure you have a true HD signal present, there is a problem with the unit.
Hope this helps,

Tv stuck on zoom


Thanks for using FixYa. Please check your cable box settings first. Sometimes the remotes have a picture size button on them, and the in-laws could have pressed that by accident. Check the TV settings, press Menu Button & then go to WINDOW/IMAGE SIZE. Now select normal size.

Also check the settings of the converter box (if you are using it). The boxes also have a peculiar problem: Unless users manually change settings from show to show, the picture from many stations either won’t fill the screen, or it will be so big that part of the picture is cut off by the edges of the screen. The solution is to press the “zoom” button on the remote that comes with the converter box. That will expand the picture so it fills the screen. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to go to the service menu. To go to the service menu please start with the TV off and press mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power the remote on. Now the TV will come on with the menu displayed and from there you can change the settings as required.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

RCA 52inch Big Screen.

On your remote push "Info" then push right or left to get OFF zoom mode, Cinema view looks pretty good.

Model 51f59a hd widescreen aspect settings dont take and picture too big

I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.

Menu- Setup- V. Position + (from either the front panel or remote) until more of the lower picture is visible. If the picture size is entirely too big, you'll need to change your aspect style. This model will only allow you to change the aspect style if it is not in 1080i mode. However, most newer HD converter boxes allow this feature. I would check the converter manual.
