Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

We have a Samsung Big Screen (not plasma or flat screen) about 36+ inches in diameter. There is a large circular button at the center bottom of the front of the tv, that usually flashes green and make a tweeting noise when it comes on. (It says lamp, timer, reset... but you only press it once for on or off). Now the screen doesn't work, no picture, and the the lamp button flashes along with the others. We're told that a repair visit (too big to transport) will be cost prohibitive, and no $$ to get a new tv. Is this a "lamp" problem" that I can fix myself??

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen
