Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press
"Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read
errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can
damage your laser.
Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a
lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass
cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of
picture and sound.
Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have
it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video
In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to
eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean
Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or
HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the
high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will
display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition
televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support
it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture
Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the
correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets,
"Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are
using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or
flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose
"Interlace" if given a choice.
if your tv and dvd player are good yes might be you have a wrong connection. this is how a proper connection between your tv and dvd player.
first step in connecting a dvd player to a tv unit is determined what kind of connection you want to make, this usually determined to the outputs and inputs available on the dvd player and tv unit.
if you are using a plasma or a lcd tv usually the inputs are: composite inputs- lets you connect a component source like a dvd, vcr, and laser disc. component inputs - lets you connect another component source such as a dvd player. DVI-HDTV - lets you connect an HD receiver with a DVI output.
for example if you select the composite input what you need is a RCA plug which usually a 3 color plug.this picture is an example of commercial rca plug which usually the color yellow use for video and the red and white color for audio..
this is how you will connect those wire into your dvd player and tv unit.look for the component output jack of your dvd player .this picture is a sample of component output jack the color may vary depending tokind of brand or dvd player do you have.
now get your RCA plug then the yellow plug insert it to the Y or video out the red and white plug insert it to the left and right AUDIO out of your dvd player.
now look for the composite inputs jack of your TV unit then get the other end of RCA plug. the yellow plug must be insert it to the V label for video the red and white plug into L/R label which mean for audio input.
after you connect the 3 wires re check all the connections make sure the RCA plug is good and properly inserted to avoid loose contact which can affect the picture and sound quality.
now turn on your dvd player and tv unit.
make sure your tv unit is set to right input you want to use like for example you are using the video 1 input, you need to set to the remote controller into video 1 so that your dvd player must be recognized by your tv. enjoy watching i hope it will help you thanks for choosing fixya as your solution to fix you problem good luck.
Most likely you are in "retail" mode which intentionally reverts back to "vivid" which is deemed best for store display purposes.
Go to pg 21 of the manual and follow the first half of the reset instructions. Once you've chosen "home" (after first selecting "langauge") you need not go any deeper into set-up mode, just exit at this point.
99.95% sure this will solve your problem and your "picture" selections will now stay put.
Press the RATIO button repeatedly to select the desired picture format. You can also adjust Aspect Ratio in the OPTION menu.
Set By Program. Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source’s image. (4:3 → 4:3, 16:9 → 16:9)
4:3. Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio, with gray bars appearing at both the left and right sides.
16:9. Choose 16:9 when you want to adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
Horizon. Choose Horizon when you want to adjust the picture in a non-linear proportion, that is, more enlarged at both sides, to create a panorama view.
Zoom 1. Choose Zoom 1 when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
Zoom 2. Choose Zoom 2 when you want the picture to be altered, both horizontally extended and vertically cropped. The picture taking a halfway trade off between alteration and screen coverage.
Cinema Zoom. Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. Note: When enlarging or reducing the picture, the image may become distorted. You can adjust the enlarge proportion of Cinema Zoom using D / E button. The adjustment range is 1~16.
Unfortunately, a cinema screen is even wider than a widescreen TV. Because of this (in order to keep the original aspect ratio), even with a widescreen TV you still end up with the black bars top and bottom.
Check the aspect ratio of the DVD (Should be printed on the back of the case somewhere).
Unless it says 1.85:1 or 16:9 Anamorphic, you will get the black bars. (Many films on DVD are 2.35:1 or even wider!)
Have you got any different picture modes on your TV. I've got a Toshiba and it has something called 'cinema mode' which does eliminate the bars. Unfortunately it does it by zooming in on the picture slightly, so you loose a bit off the side of the picture and the image does get a little grainier.
