Do a reset to this TV and check. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

SOURCE: PS3 not working on reg tv's after HDMI use on LCD HD tv

Shelley,  the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.

The Sceptre TV do use the Sony codes. However, the cheap universal remotes do not have the buttons needed. The Volume Up/down and channel up/down are controlled with the circle of buttons (arrows) in the middle of the remote.
You can get an OEM remote from Sceptre. They still have them available. Sceptre is in California.

Hi my name is Eric,
I hope I can help you with your issue ,
If the lines are there on every input then you have a bad panel (screen). The panel is the front screen section, if you could get one a new panel would cost more than a new TV. If the line is only there with the cable box then its just a bad box (I've seen the pace box do this)
 
 
 
If I have helped you with your issue please click accept.
If you have more questions you can still respond
Thanks
Eric

There are two black boxes on each side of my tv screen. How do i get rid of these boxes?


Watch some HD or other 16:9 programming. If you have pillarboxes on the sides it is likely that you are watching a 4:3 program that doesn't fit your TV's screen. When people upgrade from a "regular" TV to a "widescreen" model they changed the shape of the TV but didn't change the shape of 60+ years of TV programming, the only ways to force the "square peg" to fit the "rectangular hole" is to either chop off the top and bottom of the image or to stretch it. I highly recommend against either of these as "Stretch-O-Vision" is just wrong because it makes people look fat and turns car tires and other circles into short fat ovals.

Hau do i move the picture sidles


Not enough information...
What type of tv and model etc.

One thing you should be aware of.
If you do not have HD tv...say direct tv
then you maybe stuck with a smaller picture.

Example:
If I run my direct tv HD I get a full picture but, if
I am running it in a non HD channel...the picture
is alot smaller with the black sides and top.

The other option is on your remote you should
have buttons to control stretch etc.

Use those and see if they help.

As far as dvd"s go...make sure your not using
the letterbox versions...full screen versions should
give you ...well...Full Screen.

good luck

I have an HP G60-117US Notebook PC. Can you tell me how to connect it to my Sony HD TV so I can watch a movie.


Use an HDMI cord to connect the two together. On your Sony remote click the TV/Video button ( also called input button) slowly until you see your desktop screen appear on the Sony TV. Your desktop screen will probably be smaller then the TV screen and will be a duplcate to the computer desktop screen. That might not be acceptible to you. You will have to change the resolution to the recommended 720p or 1080p to fill up the TV screen. The pc will recognize the Sony monitor (TV) as a second monitor. You could change it from duplicate screen to seperate second screen.

Scepter X32 LCD High Definition telivision. Just


Yes it's dead; the power supply in these tvs do not have much stamina;
Due to the fact that their are no provisions for removal of heat. TV does not
have enough fans because customers don't like the noise and, the power supply surge caused by turning a cold set on and, off is not addressed by the manufacturer.
That is why the sets have only one a year warranty.
The choice you have is: repair the power supply or, replace the power supply
unless your set is under warranty.

Good evening, I've gone through the manual and I can't get my TV to show 100hz (always 50hz), also on some channels I cannot get the picture to fit the screen (it's 32''). Any help would be greatly...


Well, first the 100Hz issue. Your TV will display a descriptor or the signal it is receiving, not a descriptor of the picture you are watching. Your TV panel has a native resolution and frequency. In your case, that frequency is 100Hz. Everything, like it or not, must be converted to 100Hz for the TV to work. In your manual, you are simply adjusting setting which smooth the picture and make it flow better than it would at 50Hz. This feature is slight of hand and is probably working just fine. As for the picture fitting the screen; HD programs fill the screen of HD channels.... SD (Standard Definition) programs use black bars on each side when on HD channels. You can use any available wide or picture size feature your TV may have to stretch the picture. You may be unable to stretch the picture, due to restrictions (some TVs will not resize HD formats).

Problem with fitting full picture on my screen.


You might need to change the format on both the tv and on the device that is outputting video. Also make sure you are using proper cabling if you have an hd receiver and are only using standard definition cables you might get smaller picture.
