Why is there sound but no picture?

According to the owner's manual page 2.7 (and this is an OLD [by HDTV standards] set), the TV can only handle input resolutions of 480p or 1080i on the composite inputs. Most HDTV programming today is 720p with some 1080i and 1080p on certain channels (like some Discovery shows about nature). It is possible that your set will not process the 720p signals being sent.

As you can see, the screen isn't full, its kinda half, mom pressed something and i don't know how to fix it, please help.

The issue here is the "Format" or "Ratio" of the screen. Currently, it is set to Standard Format or a 4:3 ratio. It may also be set to 480i or 480P scan rate.

You should change it to Wide Screen or 16:9 ratio. Additionally, you will want to display High Definition images by selecting a scan rate of either 720P, 1080i or 1080P - depending on which choices are offered by the TV. Typically the remote will offer a choice of Format. It is possible that the source device (cable TV, DirecTV, Tivo, etc. has a command to cause this too. In any case, the TV, and other source appliances must be set to Wide Screen / 16:9 and 720P or higher to veiw full screen, HD images.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Picture too large for screen

It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.

The whole picture does not show on the screen; faces on the edge are cut off

It's one or two problems. It depends on if you're using a cable box. First try to see if your aspect ratio is on full using the JVC remote. Just Press the Aspect button. Then if it's on full and this doesn't correct the problem it may be your cable box. If it's time Warner go into the settings by pressing the settings button on the remote twice I believe tehn go to display and select the select and check each option picture size (change to normal if you have a 4:3 t.v. or stretch if you have a 16:9 (wide screen T.V.) Then go to aspect ratio and select again eih 4:3 or 16:9. If your have a hdtv cable box select output resolution and make sure there is a bulllet next to each setting for 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i. Then exit out of the cable settings and your picture should be ok. Now if you have the hdtv package keep in mind it is normal to have the black side bars on each side of the picture only if your watching one ofthe high definition channel network that is not actual being broadcast in hdtv or recorded in hdtv.

Dear customer,
            You can fix it by right-clicking on the nvidia icon in your system tray, going to "TV Out" and then in there is a box under "Screen Resolution" (I think that's what it says) where you can click to zoom in or out, or move the screen up,down,and to the sides.
           Or else your problem is  with the ratio of the signal, make sure the cable box is set to match your tv style (4x3 or 16x9)and the video output is set correctly (480p, 720p, 1080I) the set will have MORE format options on analog channels (480I) than on HD channels as the HD signal also controls the format shown by the set and also change the aspect ratio to fit your screen.. that'll solve your problem..

HDTV Cable box conflict

This set does not support 480I in the DTV mode, only 480P and 1080I is supported. Try setting the analog setting in the cable box to 480p and that should take care of watching the set in DTV. Most cable boxes have a setting for format changes in the customer menu, depending on the type of box. If you are able to change the format, then the other inputs will not work since they need a 480I signal, as well as VCRs. Another setup could be to use the S-Video cable or Video input jacks to get a better picture in 480I instead of using the cable input. However, when changing from HD to Analog, you will have to change to the correct input on the set as well. Hope this helps.
