Question about Panasonic TH-42PD25U/P 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Picture has shifted to the left

Just recently, the picture on my tv has shifted to the left, cutting off about 1/3rd of the picture and leaving a black bar on the right side of the screen. DVD's play with no shift, this only occurs in TV mode. Even if I unplug the cable from the tv, the "snow" where the picture usually is, is shifted to the left. Does anyone know if this is a setting that has changed or is it a technical issue with the tv. With it being a 42" plasma, they want to charge $300 just to come to look at it and tell me what it could be.

    Thanks, I actually had already found that forum after I posted this, had ordered the part, and just this past weekend, completed the instructions and it worked like a charm. What is a shame is that when I called Panasonic, they knew nothing about how to fix it and i had to figure it out myself on the internet. I have the jig which cost me $60 bucks. I'm willing to rent it out to others who need it for $10.

    Picture is shifted to left in when game console is plugged in.  No problems with TV picture or DVDs.

This is a known problem. Panasonic sells a jig to correct it. I had the same problem and bought the jig for about $25. It plugs into a special port in the back of the tv behind a little door. You can read all about it here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=534816

Hello, I have a Toshiba 27AF45C television. The problem I am having is that the image on the screen is shifted over to the left, cutting off the picture and not giving the full view. I was just wondering...


Hello
Horizontal 'Shift' is the problem to your TV. There are so many causes to this fault. Must troubleshoot from horizontal output section to video IF section. The main board has the trouble. If you can get its mainboard as card basis at your town, it will be best to replace it as card basis.
This is the picture of the main baord.

Picture not centered on my philips 47'' lcd tv


NOTE:(Edited and copied from another thread on Fixya.com, c7carl)

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD
By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007
Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago

I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.

    WOW! It works!! The picture on my Magnavox (aka Philips) 37MF321D had shifted to the right. I figured I had a big repair bill coming up soon. But hey! Just used the TV remote as described by "Guest', and re-centered the picture to the left. Wallah! Thanks ""Guest" whomever you are! Reply

Shifted Picture


Yes. This problem comes about by actually pressing the center ring accidentally during normal viewing. Just press and hold the left or right side of the ring until the pciture straightens itself out again (if the black portion of the screen is to the right of the picture, press the right ring; if it is to the left side, press the left ring).

Picture shifted and ghost image


Try using an input other than the tuner. I.e a DVD player or game system on the front inputs. If the picture looks OK on the other input, your tuner is damaged and will need replaced, if it looks bad also, try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and then go through the setup process in the menus. If this fails seek a repair shop.
