Mitsubishi Projection TV - Screen is Too Small for Picture

Recently, our TV picture started looking stretched and too big for the screen.  The people look squashed and words are cut off on the sides.  I checked the format settings, and it is set to "standard", which is the default setting.  There is a "stretch" option, but it is not on.  Is there anything else we can do to get the picture to fit the screen, or does it need a new part?

Thank you!

SOURCE: Format stuck on Mitsubishi WS-55511 Rear Projection TB

Normallly, if the format button on the remote 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 when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

Try downloading the service manual and go through the calibration excercise. There's also some additional controls behind the right front speaker.

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.

The format of what you are watching plays a major part in whether all of the screen is used. If the program is 4:3 the screen will remain pretty much square. 16: 9 would be the most desirable for filling all the area. Go ahead and acquire a manual, they're not much...accordianman

Picture size


This is the same problem I have (the picture being cut off on the edges). On your computer, you need to change to a native display.

For instance, 1920x1080 usually cuts an inch off of all sides, but it's meant more for videos where a little cropping isn't a big deal; not general screen use.

I believe the reason this happens is because with those other resolutions, 1920x1080 for instance, they are not your laptop's "native resolution", so in order to avoid scaling and stretching the image (which would degrade quality) they show its exact size, point by point, which is bigger than the number of pixels on your TV display.

Some TVs, like mine, have a TV option called "100% scale" that forces the picture to exactly fit to the screen. But this causes stretching and distortion if the aspect ratio of your resolution and the TV's whole screen are different.

Try something like 1366x768 or 1360x768 (some have both, some have only one of those). You should be able to find one or two resolutions like this that show the entire screen with full sharp clarity. It may even look better than 1920x1080 depending on your computer; find the best one that shows sharpness.

The tv picture is to big for the screen. Wondering how to fix this?


Hello; All HDTV's have an "aspect ratio" option on the remote control. It may be named something else. You can choose horizontal stretch which makes people look fatter than they are, Zoom which cuts off top bottom and sides of the pix and others. Just choose the one you like best. Hope this helps!

PICTURE TO BIG AT THE SCREEN.CAN NOT SEE THE PICTERS MARGIN AT THE SCREEN.HOW TO ADJUST(REDUCING PICTURE SIZE ON SCREEN)?


1) Power your wide-screen TV on and turn to a channel that is displayed with bars on the side. You need to leave this channel on to ensure you have properly adjusted your wide-screen TV.

2)
Find in your TVs settings where you can "stretch" the picture. Refer to your wide-screen TVs owner's manual for specific instructions. Some TVs may not refer to this adjustment as "stretch." You will be able to find all the information your looking for in the owners manual.

3) Adjust settings back to normal if you want to watch a program shown in 16:9 format. Keeping the screen "stretched" will cause programs shown in 16:9 format appear zoomed in, making the picture look really different.

My tv zooms in and changes the format.


This is normal - you are zooming in on the picture. Most people use the zoom feature to "stretch" a widescreen movie so it will fit the screen.

Sanyo TV stretches outwards and shakes


If the picture is closing (top to bottom) and goes back to normal when you hit it you probably have a bad solder connection on IC501 (location number) the vertical deflection IC on a metal heat sink. If you mean outwards as in side to side as it looks in the picture, I don't know specifically where to solder but get a magnifying glass and look for suspected bad solder connections. Look for the word width if it is there. It is good that you a confident in soldering.
