Right half part of screen is darker than left part

Look at the screen controller board in the TV. It's the one that has two flat multi conductor flat ribbon cables leading to the screen.

I turn my hd52w56 52in on and no picture,no light,just sound.

This occurs because there is no power reaching the screen. The power supply has been kind of ruptured or is not supplying enough current to the screen. This is due to a faulty converter. Your screen might have been damaged due to uncontrolled current to the screen. I advice you replace the screen or see a specialist, okay. Hope these help.

Lower half portion of the horizontal screen black

hi rafi,

check if problem occurs with another computer, hook up another monitor to your computer to check if your graphic card is making trouble.

if it the monitor, and it still is under warranty and you did not damage it, just return to place of purchase and let the paid pros work their magic1

Good luck

Are you referring to the black bars that show above and below the movie? That's normal, it's called widescreen aspect ratio.

If you don't like that, you want to buy/rent fullscreen movies.

Widescreen is 6:9, fullscreen is 4:3. (Square versus rectangle)

Wii VC games won't play on hdtv

I had the same Black Screen problem and I finally have a fix for it!

When using component video cables and a HDTV: Go into the Wii's system settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen Settings.

This worked for me, good luck!

Philips 42PF7320A cropping issue


When using a hd connection on a philips tv and (I am assuming this is the case) the tv disables the format features on the tv and only lets you select widescreen and automatic, if you are using hd adjust the picture size from the cable/satellite box, look for it in the box's menu system or on the remote, it is usually labeled, aspect ratio, zoom, format or something to that nature, hope I helped you
