Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

How do you switch from 4.3 to 16.9?

I have run through all the menu screens and have frustrated myself. The set will change screen size but, the picture of the show runs off the right,left, top and bottom. The menu for Uverse and the show can not be seen. Example: If the text on screen says: Welcome to Hollywood. What I actually see is... come to Hollyw ... I can not see the WEL before the text and the OOD after the text. I know it is a button that I can not find, this happened about two years ago. It cost a trip from a repair man to come out to the house and hit the right button, how embarassing.

Try the blue button, or menu,(then a square with 2 opposing arrows) and adjust there.
I am assuming that Sony have not drastically changed button layouts)

How do I get missing Icons back on my PC screen


The higher the resolution, the more likely you will be able to see your icons.
From Microsoft.com:
1. Open Display in Control Panel. 2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply. 3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment. 4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting. Note
• To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display. • A higher screen resolution reduces the size of items on your screen and increases the relative space on your desktop • You can switch your screen resolution temporarily to 640 X 480 if you have games or other programs that are set to run at that resolution. To switch, right-click the game or program (on the desktop or on the Start menu), and then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, and then select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your display reverts to its default resolution when you close the program. • Your monitor and video adapter determine how much you can change your screen resolution. You may not be able to increase the resolution above a certain level. • Changes to screen resolution affect all users that log on to the computer. • Only the recommended screen resolutions are listed. For additional settings, click the Advanced button on the Settings tab, click the Adapter tab, and then click List all Modes. Select the resolution, color level, and refresh rate you want.

How do I have printer switch from empty paper tray 1 to the full 550 paper tray 2


Hi. You need to do tray linking. When one linked tray is empty, paper feeds from the next linked tray. The size and type settings for all trays must be set from the Paper Menu. To set the paper type or size:
1. On the home screen, touch Menu button
2. Touch Paper Menu
3. Touch Paper Size/Type.
Note: To link the multipurpose feeder, Configure MP must be set to Cassette in order for MP Feeder Size or MP
Feeder Type to appear as a menu item.
4. Touch the right or left arrows to select the same size paper from all paper sources to be linked.
5. Touch the right or left arrows to select the same type paper from all paper sources to be linked.
Note: When the Size and Type settings are the same for any trays, the trays are automatically linked.
6. Touch Submit.
Submitting changes appears.
7. Touch Home to return to the home screen.
Hope this helps.

My picture is smaller than the screen size.


Dear User,

This usually happens by selecting the wrong screen resolution or the resolution not supported by your Monitor.
However you can solve this by getting into the "Safe Mode" .
  1. Press the 'F8' key just before the windows logo appears.
  2. It presents a Menu with various options.
  3. Select 'Safe Mode'.
  4. You can now use your monitor here
  5. Now login as usual.
  6. Right click on the Desktop and go to Properties. In Setting use the lowest screen resolution. Click on Apply - OK.
  7. Restart your system properly.
  8. And you find everything OK again.

Thanks

Tv continually changes from video 1 to video 2 to video 3 etc... sometimes get black screen as well + menu items. Based on a suggestion, I removed the batteries from the remote but that does not help. This...


It sounds like a switch problem inside the TV if you have already tried removing the remote batts. Try replacing the switches behind the push buttons on the front of the TV. Also, if glass cleaner or some other foreign substance has run down the front of the screen and into the set, this can cause switches to short out and cause this problem. The part number for the switches is 23145227. Thanks for using fixya.

I cant adjust my picture size to normal on my Sony Wega 51" TV


the screen size feature is gray out because there is a previous option selected already and computer assumes you want always that size.So going into the menu and try to look for a previous selection related with: "screen size default". The menu allows you to selec this option and (i like to "standard" and i adjust screen size with my cable box feature who allows change size also if is needed, but now days cable box change it itself because is automatic) is install in the original program by manufacture because helps you to keep one size and you don't have to change it any moment. This default option is outside the regular screen size option, if i remember right is in set up screen. try to find this options in your user's manual to follow the right screen procedure..
