Re: over scanning

These are good sets, but now the only way to get info is to search the threads here for your problem, and you may find it or you can pay the 9.95 and your problem will be solved and you can rated as that! Still its much cheaper than calling a repairman!

Panasonic Pt-51hx42 has no picture. Red light blinks 1x every 5 sec. Started with colored bar across top of picture. Then top half of picture went black, then entire picture static, Now won't turn on. ...

Yes it can be fixed. Everything you are saying points to a problem with the digital video processing module and or associated power supplies that run it. Even though this is a "digital HDTV". It still makes it's picture using older analog methods (electron beam scanning on a CRT projects the image). Sometimes the digital video IC's would simply need to be resoldered. The big question is although it is repairable, is it cost effective. This is a 51" CRT projector. There are 50" flat panel tv's available now that can outperform it for $500-600 brand new. Back in the late 90s and early 2000s when I used to repair these full time, the repair would cost you around $350 including service charge to come to your house. Back then this tv cost around $1500+ so it was usually worth repairing, but that is not the case today. That is the rule, but There are a few exceptions (ie the guy who cuts a giant hole in his wall to recess the tv inside his wall for a "custom" installed look is forced to choose between repairing a 15yr old tv (your tv dates back around 2002 if memory is correct) and heavy construction)

How to adjust pitcher size

Try this setting and see if it helps: Menu>Picture>Advance Picture Settings>Scan Velocity Modulation (Check mark it) Then the TV will try to auto adjust it's picture size to the source you are using. I noticed it most on ESPN News HD. If you are using a HD cable box, you might be able to use the cable box settings to change the picture size. Sometimes the box is on "Zoom" and it takes the top of heads off.

HD channels run off the edges

That solution is likely to be found in the cable or satellite box set up menu. Make sure that the output video format (4:3, letterbox, etc.) matches the TV

Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there will be a menu somewhere regarding aspect ratio using the terms - cropped, zoom, and a few other terms as well. You probably want cropped, which will cut some of the sides off, but you wouldn't miss the picture as a whole when view at full screen. Hope this helps!

My screen have some red lines

I will assume from you description that this is a rear projection crt(picture tube) tv. if this is true I have good news/bad news.
faint red horizontal bowed lines in the picture indicate the screen(G2) voltage for the red tube is too high.Slight lowering of the G2 adjustment will eliminate these lines. I stress SLIGHT because too much adjustment will mess up the gray scale .
The bad news the red crt made be bad. if the adjustment works but in the future the problem reappears then suspect the red crt replacement is probably not economical to repair.

Picture is slightly rotated clockwise

HHHmmm Thats a weird one?? Have you moved or transported the set lately?? As it always been like this or did the problem just spring up?. Im thinking it was assembled with the yolks or the picture tube mount not level so when you lost a little bit of vertical height it shows up alot more then if the scan was correct. If it just happens after a move of some sort then the crt mount might have bent to one side a bit to cause all three tubes to move at once, cause if it wasent all three tubes you would have differant colors over the screen outlining every straight edge. Theres a little control on the sweep pcb called vert ht. Try if your brave to adjust the pic out alittle to pull the pic and make it larger BUT I will warn you if your not a tech and know electronics you could get a bad shock from the inside of this set as the set has to be on to make this adj. Also you could slip a little and thats all it will take to cause more damage then an alighnment so maybe you should inquire what a service charge will cost ya and make sure the repair person trys to adjust the vertical height before selling you a repair job as alot of techs will say its not normal for a set to lose vertical Height without a part going bad but thats not true as capacitors will sometims change value a little and throw off the height. Good Luck
