Question about Televison & Video
I have a 1080, my nephews came for a visit and done something- now the picture doesn't fit the screen, about an inch or two off too wide and too tall. When watching a ball game or racing I cannot see the score or who is winning. the problem is not in the zoom we have tried everything we can think of. No owners manual, bought it used. I really like the TV great picture and sound. Can you help?
You should be able to change the "ASPECT" or "SCREEN SIZE" in the menu. Be sure they did not change that on the source(i.e..satelite/cable box) also. there may be a specific button on the remote for this.

SOURCE: hd picture too wide
If you are using a cable box you need to look on your cable remote for HD ZOOM or you can try the # sign on the remote. This should change your screen size and get you taken care of.

You con't need to buy anything other than a HD satellite or cable box. A television can either handle HD or not. The high definition sets are monitors that are capable of handing an input of up to 1080i.
Quick and dirty. Look in the back for blue, green, red cable input sockets. There should be matching cable outs. from your cable or satellite box. get a set of component video cables, plug them in. Determine the audio type, where RCA jacks, Toslink fiberoptic or a component cable sock. In the latter you use a cable much like a yellow video. You can get away with using a yellow video cable if need be. Now, below more specifics if needed.
No, you don't want to by the add-on from Mitsubishi. I am assuming you have a 16-9 wide format box
If you have a squarish box, i.e. 4:3 ratio. forget it. I don't know if any wree made for HD, but unlikely. If you'd given me the model number could be a little more definitive. If you have a manual, it will tell you whether you can go HDTV.
Take a look in the rear of the set and look at the connection holes. You should have at least one set of inputs, marked in some way with the Red, Green and Blue just on the inside of the cable hole. Those are tomponent cables pops that allow you to do high definition television. These cables are video only.; Sound is a second separate question.
There are usually some other assorted things back there, including off air tele.and maybe another kind of connecter.. Some of these might be useful if you have games etc. that attach directly to the set. In any event, those component cables say that you can do HDTV. (NB:
The Direct TV HD box should have component cable outputs. You can do this directly from the DiTV box to the set. You would also need a separate Audio Cable(s). Your set should have either a toslink fiberoptic hookup and/or a component audio cable. There's no inherent advantage between those two. If you have an old video cable (yellow) than you can substitute that.
You should now have HDTV and high quality sound through the set. You will probably have to set up the inputs and other stuff with the.remote. It's pretty logical. If you have used input x for bringing in the video, just match it up.and your on your way.
If you are going to confuse things by trying to connect another piece of gear, e.g. dvd box, you would go to inputs two. If you have the second set of component input, then hook an HD player to it. In this setup, you adjust the sound on the set according to how it works. I assume the DTV audiio can be controlled directly just as a cable box. -- Here's what's going on. For several years Mitsubishi built higher end televisions without tuners or slots for cable (or satellite). But they were HD capable (as I said, not all). At the time, there was no HD that mattered and not even much of a standard for it. Some wanted 729p, others wanted 1080i The advantage for 720p over 1080i was supposedly the improved movement capture. 720p isn't dead, but it's not a problem.
You will need to set the menu on the television (using the remote) so that it says 1080i. It does not do 1080p, the newer high standard. It only has two other settings of consequence, 480i and 480p. Put it on 1080i and leave it alone. The 480i and the 480P will be on auto pilot if you have an older DVD players. If there is a high definition signal at fewer than 1080, it will be upconverted to 1080i..
The set will handle any signal you send it like that. You probably have an HDMI out from your dtv or cable box. The set does not have HDMI (unless on a later model). The DTV box should have both of them. That's a simpler wiring setup that allows 1080P. On the offchance you have a box HDMI only, you'll need a converter cable.
The setup gets a little more complicated if you're using a receiver as a switcher, i.e. all inputs go there with only one output to the set. when ou do that you're in an area outside this question.
is this all there is to it. But It goes only slightly more difficult if you're hooking up the .
You don't need the box for the television set.

most likely the convergence Ics have failed. Check F9a04 and F9A05 pico fuses if they are blown you will need to replace them and the convergence Ics.They are located on the center board they are green and look like resistors without the color band. see the photo

What you're describing is a repair issue. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do through troubleshooting to correct that problem. There is an internal part that has to be replaced. If you're under warranty or have an extended service plan, the repair will cost you nothing.

If this is a ws-65411: it sounds like one of the two STK-392-110 convergence IC's is bad; you need to have both replaced at the same time; I do this type of repair(done hundreds of them) and most can be done right in your home.
The two ic's can be purchased on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping.
This is the slow time of year for TV repair shops--find someone in your area who knows how to do this kind of repair---here shops charge 3-4 hundred but I charge 200-250 total depending on brand of set.
Shop around and if they insist on "taking set to shop" keep looking---any good tech can do this repair in your home---MAKE SURE HE CHANGES BOTH of the IC's!
I do this here for free so if this has been helpful give me a vote here.
