Re: fill the screen

Depending on what source you are using, this is possible. Most digital sources are set and cant be changed by the tv leaving black bars. Though video, svideo and component should allow multiple masking and cropping modes to strech the picture.

My tv has no picture just lines going across it

Make sure you don't have any big speakers close by. I think the magnets in the speakers mighteffect the picture. If not then I'm not sure

Insignia 50 inch 1080 plasma - Picture only shows about 3 inches at the top of the screen

Several possible suspects include: power board, main board--first step is test voltages coming out of power board--------remotely possible also is the display itself (panel which is screen unit) if it turns out to be that it is fatal.

Only get the bottom half of screen with good picture, top is color lines.

Its a Plasma so it likely has 2 sustain boards--one for top half of screen and another for the bottom. Some brands use different names but this is likely the issue here.

My tv has sound but no picture its an akai model pdp4206em1

Try unplugging it for an hour or so or try change sources , if the computer ever fell asleep while it was plugged in it is possible it triggered a sleep mode in the tv. Most will do such a thing. It is doubtful that the computer caused any damage to it but i would advise against using a plasma tv as a computer monitor because burn in WILL eventually occur with a static image left on the screen constantly.
