Screen too large for pc

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop down list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.

Under the subheading Screen resolution in the middle, does it state
1400 x 1050?
That is the native screen resolution.

If not;

1) The down arrow with the green tip, and green 'cap', is a Slider.
Left-click on it, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now slide it to the left, or right, until 1400 x 1050 appears.

2) Also;
The Color quality to the right is supposed to state -
Highest (32-bit)

If not click on the blue down arrow to the right, and in the drop down list click on -> Highest (32-bit)

Go to the bottom right, and click on Apply.
Now go to the bottom right, and click on OK.
A small window may come up, and state that these settings will take effect, unless you do not want them to.

You want them to. Do nothing, allow the countdown.

Pink bar down the left side of screen aprox 3" wide when using it for anything, dvd, game, etc.

Hi, More than likely it sounds like something was spilled on the front of the t.v.'s screen and before it was cleaned off leaked into the screen itself. On the bottom edge of some t.v.'s there are the ribbon cables that connect screen to the circuit board, if something gets spilled there it can interrupt the contacts and cause that very symptom ( I know from 1st hand experience- mine was with a 19" Audiovox that developed a rainbow of vertical lines ) The only way to tell is to disassemble the t.v., look at where the ribbon cables connected to t.v.'s screen and check for signs of corrosion ( in my case i could see where the semi-translucent pathways, kinda gold in color, that led from the edges of ribbon cable leading inside the lcd were eaten away) I hope I'm wrong but if not I hope this shed some light on your situation. Thanks for asking FixYa, Good luck-Prodzilla

Composite output has ghosting around the video (sort of an auro around all images on screen, including text and video). dvd menu also has this problem, so i verified that it is the output of the recorder...

Try reducing your sharpness value on either your TV or the player if applicable. Also disable any edge enhancement or "DVE" modes on the TV if applicable.

The easiest way to adjust sharpness control by the naked eye is with a calibration disc. Alternatively however, just for sharpness if you have a screen full of text and/or lines do the following;

Reduce your color/saturation value all the way down...this will make the picture black and white.

Then reduce your sharpness control until the "ghosting" effect or any additional white lines on text edges and line edges disappear.
Then you can return your color/saturation value back to normal.

Hope this helps!

White stripe in print-outs

This is a common problem with this printer. Each toner color has it's own roller. The tin blade on the inside edge of the roler gets plasticy buildup and needs to be cleaned.

Pull out the entire toner roller assembly for the color that is problmatic. Unscrew the tin blade from the roller assembly. Clean the inside edge of this blade (the part that scrapes on the roller) completely. NOTE: After cleaning mine with toilet paper & water I ran my fingernail along the edge to find that the waxy buildup was still there. I gently took my fingernail and scraped at it until it felt smooth -- no burrs.

NOTE: The edge of this blade is very sharp! Be careful. Don't run your finger along the edge.

Reinsall the tin plate maing sure that the foam sweeps (on the right and left of the blade) are not stuck under the tin blade. (If you do, it will dump large amounts of toner on your pages. Very messy).

Give her a whirl.

LCD screen is totally white and absent of color

Sounds like a loose ribbon cable -- the one that connects the screen to the circuitry inside the camera.

Try squeezing the body of the camera near the bottom 'Samsung' logo, to try to snug-up the connection. Brace the front (under the lens) with your index fingers, and press firmly with your thumbs on the back over the logo just under the screen.

You might try squeezing around the other edges of the screen for good measure in case something else came loose.

Green convergence on Panasonic PT-53WX42 is not ligning up...

Does not sound like the chips are bad.
What you need to adjust is "SKEW". You need to enter "service Mode" then go into "Coarse Convergence". Skew can be adjusted for all 3 colors. Unless you have the service manual, these corrections should not be attempted.

To clean the INSIDE of the screen, you really have to disassemble the TV. Remove all the screws that hold the "back" ( the piece with the mirror) to the front (screen) assembly.
The screen can be cleaned with a solution of diluted isopropyl alcohol, no more than a 50% solution. Drugstores will carry it, but it might be 70%-90%. Just dilute with distilled water (not tap water as it contains minerals). Personally I have used 70% with no ill side effects but 50% is recommended.
