Question about RCA R52WM24 52" HDTV Projection Television

Image size too large, cannot see all of sports scores scrolling on the bottom

I've noticed this and it is a little irritating, since I am using Component Cables from my cable box I do not get all of the size adjusting features from the TV's built in menu's. So when watching ESPN for instance, when they scroll scores accross the bottom the ESPN logo, and team names are partially cut off. The screen is oversized proportionally around the entire screen, the problem is just noticed alot more on news and sports stations. Is there some "fine tuning" features inside the TV that me as a consumer are not supposed to be able to access? I have a 4 yr. onsite agreement with this TV, is this something that the service provider will do?

    I have shuffled through all of the settings of my box (it is a Scientific Atlantic Explorer 8300HD) and if is set to an output format of 1080i and the aspect ratio of 16:9 with stretch 4:3 picture. There doesn't appear to be any finetuning that lets me shrink the screen by 20 or 30 pixel to fit perfectly. I guess that is all that is needed to be adjusted.

Hey voiolentce. if you press the # button on the cablebox remote control you can fine tune the zoom by those 20 pixels you want. you are most likely set at zoom 1 currently. thats where i was when i had this same problem and it took me days to figure out that all i needed to do was press the damn # button. i couldnt see any of the scores on espn sports games and its been driving me crazy. hope this helps!

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

Picture size is to large


You might have it in the wrong picture size (zoom 1 or 2). Menu, picture, size ...

If this is not the case, you can go to the service menu and reduce the size of the viewing image.
Turn off TV, press mute then 182, Turn on TV and this menu appears.

Picture size won't fit screen. Can't see scrolling text at bottom (e.g. sports scores on ESPN)


hi there,

its probably not the tv but the set top box you need to fix. go to the settings and select the mode you want ie. widescreen 16:9 etc

then go to the tv and select the full mode or widescreen mode at 16:9

that should solve your problem. it takes some time to find the combination between the set top box and the tv to get it right

good luck

Taking a smaller image from S80


In picture-taking mode, hit the Func Set button. You will see menus of options along the left side and bottom of the display. Tap the bottom of the scroll ring (the ring around the Func Set button) until the bottom option of the left menu is highlighted in red. This option sets the image size of the pictures you are taking. Change this size by rotating the scroll wheel. The 5 options are Large, Medium1, Medium2, Medium3, and Small. The image size in pixels is displayed above the bottom menu as you switch between sizes. When finished, hit Func Set again.

Sansui - BOTTOM OF SCREEN CUT OFF


Your problem is not a vertical alighnment or size adjustment. No, Im sorry to say its the old vertical output IC and /or the small capacitors around the ic and in the vertical circuit. If you dont have the right tools, like a soldering iron a multimeter know how to read a schematic diagram, then you should seek out a repair person to assist you in this repair.
