Cutting off the picture

I'm having a problem with my t.v. that when I am using either the HDMI port or the HD port for my xbox 360, the screen cuts off about a half inch of the picture on the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the screen. Usually its not a problem except when I'm playing certain video games that use menus located on the sides of the screen which end up getting cut out. I've tried looking through the options in the t.v. and dvd player or xbox but nothing allows for a full screen adjustment. any solutions?


Thanks, Eric

Re: cutting off the picture

I had the same problem. The TV has vertical compression technology that maximizes resolution from widescreens sources (HDMI). You have to set the dvd player or xbox to the 16:9 setting even though you have a 4:3 tv.

HOW DO YOU HOOK AN XBOX 360 TO Emerson EWF2004 20

This TV has composite and S-video inputs (limiting you to SD outputs from the XBOX). Since the XBOX 360 only has an HDMI output, you will need the XBOX to composite AV cable. (There is also an XBOX to S-video cable.) This adapter is sold separately from the XBOX. has the composite video cable for $8 plus shipping here: . It will be more expensive at any retail electronics store.

The manual for the Emerson EWF2004 is available from Funai, which built the TV for the Emerson line, . The direct link to the manual is . Note: you need the original remote or a universal remote that has a Source or Input button (with the correct code) to change inputs. There is no Input button on the TV.

I hope this helps.

Xbox 360 screen cut off on left side

Ok, I've had the same issue and I was able to fix my problem. I was getting cut off sides in HD mode on my playstation.

I entered the service menu by doing this:

Turn TV Off
Use remote and hit "Mute 1 8 2 Power" (not at the same time, but one after the other)

The TV will come on with the service menu. Enter the 1080i adjustment screen. Write down ALL the values in case you mess up. Adjust the values as necessary to fit your screen. It's sort of like adjusting a computer monitor's image for different resolutions.

Non-HD picture issues

Sounds like you may have something generating interference, such as a bad cable shield on maybe a ground connection inside your tv. You might try moving the cables while watching the screen and see if the pattern changes. Double pictures on a screen can be caused by "ghosts", which means that you're getting two signals--- one slightly behind the other. Anything oscillating generating a radio frequency may radiate into your circuits causing this strange problem. Stargazer
