    it says it is a HD tv but it will only work on 430p on the dish box, unless i put the tv on video 1 instead of Y Pb Pr?

  • unciviliz_ed Jun 21, 2009

    the model # is 9P5544 C102

  • unciviliz_ed Jun 21, 2009

    I guess you don't know the difference between HIGH DEFINATION and DIGITAL, I know it isn't DIGITAL but it is HIGH DEFINATION

  • unciviliz_ed Jun 22, 2009

    well then the makers lied cause it has HD on the front, guess it must have been a selling gimick, but that explains why it only works on Y Pb Pr with the dish box set on 430p, thanks for the info.

    whats the model number of your set as the 9P5544 is a PTV840 Chassis which is a analog TV

  • Sonny Berry
    Sonny Berry Jun 21, 2009

    Yes thats the PTV840 Chassis which isnt a HD Chassis its just standard definition ( Analog ) Only the DPTV chassis are HD

    Download the user manual from retrevo.com and you will see its neither High definition or Digital. It has what are refered too as digital Connections which mean a digital source which has its own tuner can be connected to your set. But its still a analog ( standard Definition) TV

  • Sonny Berry
    Sonny Berry Jun 22, 2009

    Yes they shouldnt have put that on the set as it does need an external tuner to be plugged into the digital connection. That was one of the transitional sets as the sets were made full HDTV after the PTV915 Chassis when the chassis's switched to the DPTV series.

Change the aspect ratio


you can set the aspect on either remote. the best thing to do is set the proper aspect on the tv remote for regular (sd) channels, and then again for hd channels. the tv should remember these aspect settings and revert to them when you switch back and forth from sd to hd. if you have satelite, there is usually another aspect on there you can change depending on the program, but i usually recommend leaving it alone. if you are on an hd channel with side bars, switch to the sd version instead of changing aspect so you dont have to keep flipping it back and forth.

I have only partial picture. top of screen cut off.


check the aspect or ratio settings
there is a button on the remote called aspect, ration, pic size, or something simmilar you need to push.
if you have satelite tv, it can also be the format button on that remote

Cannot change aspect ratio of picture when ratio button is pressed on remote. Batteries in remote are good. Everything else on remote works. Sony KP-57HW40


If you are connected to a HD cable or satellite box, the aspect ratio is set by that box. If it is set for 1080i 16:9 wide screen mode then your TV is locked at that ratio. This is good considering you have a Hi-Scan 1080i television in the Sony KP57HW40. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Picture not to edge of screen


That is because you are watching the picture in the 4:3 aspect ratio. This is normal when you are watching a channel that is being broadcast in 480 or digital. But once you tune to a station that has 1080 or at least 720p which is true high def then the picture should expand to 16:9 aspect ratio. It will switch between the two automatically as it determines what type of signal it sees. You can force the resolution to change by pushing the format or aspect ratio button on the remote but you will lose picture quality.

My tv the picture is bigger than the tv screen


it sounds like you have hit the zoom button or your aspect ratio isnt right. the aspect ratio should be set to 16:9 (if there isnt a button for aspect ratio, change it in the menu) and there should be a zoom button on your remote and just keep hitting that and it should return to normal. If neither works, post your tv brand and model and i'll try to find another answer

Fullscreen HD?


check to see if the box has a tv type setting in it's menu since I don't know what the model of the HD box is it must be in the user manual on how to set this up. it is not the tv that is the problem.

I cannot change aspect ratio


If you are trying to change the aspect ratio on the television make sure you are sending an HD signal Via Component cables. I am not aware of a way to get HD cable without a PC cable card or box, it could be that your television is not receiving the proper signal (analog, or composite) to switch the aspect ratio on your particular television.
