Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a j5700 connected to a Samsung smart tv ... when using the DVD to access pandora, the icons projected on the screen are oversized and stretch beyond the monitor

Only the DVD projection is screwed up ... tv and smart hub on tv are fine ... so seems like I need to adjust something on the DVD player ... my tv aspect ratio is set to full 16:9

SOURCE: prob. with aspect ratio

The key word here is dropped,was the unit ok before? how hard was it dropped? if the tv is only a 4:3 screen then it can not give you a 16:9 AR unless the dvd can change that, it probably has the main circuit board broken somewhere and it needs professional help.Let's hope is not major damage.

SOURCE: Hitachi Ultravision LCD Rear Projection

Normallly, if the format button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Wrong aspect ratio LCD tv: Model Polaroid FLU-1911S

You cant change the aspect ratio. Polaroid built this unit with a non-standard format. Here is what I found:

Don't be thrown off by other wide-screen aspect ratios. When shopping for wide-screen displays--especially flat-panel LCDs--you may see aspect ratios such as 15:9 or 16:10. They are, for all intents and purposes, close enough to 16:9 to be considered synonymous. Unless you're extremely sensitive to geometry, it's doubtful you'll notice the slight stretching or squashing they introduce.
Sorry!

SOURCE: My monitor displays images in stetched full screen format

the description you gave was the long way right click on my computer, select properties then device manager, you will be in the same place but lots faster, plug and play does not identify the monitor or its compatible display resolutions, right click on the desktop select properties then display settings, go into advanced tab and look at the monitor, and the adapter, you can play with the setting until you find one that works, 1400 x 900 may not be supported by the video card(adapter) so that may be why your loosing the video settings.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: 22'' LCD monitor aspect ratio is off.

Set resolution to the native 1680 x 1050. Then, using the buttons on the monitor, go into the monitor's menu. go down to "Image Setting", go to "HDMI Mode", then select "PC Mode". This should help everything fit on screen correctly.

Network issues with Samsung Smart TV UN60JU6500FXZA


You mention two separate issues, WiFi and smart hub. As you know Samsung built in manual is the worst idea ever. There is no picture of the complete rear panel connection for example.
If the smart hub is the actual WiFi antenna then if your system doesn't recognize Smart Hub then you have a bad smart hub.
to test smart hub plug something into hub ( DVD HDMI, video game) If your remote has smart hub button press and see what appears. Otherwise select source on remote see if your attached item appears. (That would indicate smart hub does talk to TV)!
Since you can access your network when hard wired your network password is stored.
Once you have verified Smart Hub is functional then work on WiFi.
i will say my Samsung is 3 ft from my router and hard wired for better streaming speed.
I use Bluetooth access to share photos from IPads.
I would leave TV hard wired.

How to cconnect netflix with samsung smart tv


I assume your Samsung TV has Smart features. If that is the case, you may need to do the following..

  1. Connect your TV to your wireless Internet. Using the remote goto Menu -> Networks -> Network Settings -> Wireless
  2. Select your network from the list and enter passwords if required.
  3. You can view the Network status option to see what you are connect to and the signal strength.
  4. Press the Smart feature key (multicolored key in the middle of the remote.
  5. Look for the Netflix icon near the top of the screen. It may take a short while to load so be patient.
  6. Enter your Netflix login account or select the free month option.
Keep in mind you may be asked to consent to some of the Samsung, Yahoo and other policies in order to use some features and they may collect information about what you view, etc. Read the policies found under the Menu. Also, this procedure works for the

Sound stops when listening to Pandora via Samsung LED Pandora App.


Is the TV connected to the receiver with a digital connection (coax, or optical)?. Try setting it to PCM on the TV Some receivers don't like it when there is a break between tracks and the signal is lost. You won't get surround (but Pandora is just stereo anyway), but you can still use the Receiver's Dolby or DTS features to go multispeaker. Downside if of course that if you have other Multichannel audio sources through the TV, they may be lost. But it's worth checking..

Im a dumbie and didnt write down my pandora activation number for my account for my samsung player. is there any other way to find out my code?


On the TV screen, there should be an option to get a new code. Typically, the code is time sensitive, so you need to use the activation code within 30 minutes, or so. To join your device and your Pandora account, you do need a Pandora account, and have the password for this account to use on the PC. The activation code on the TV will be different. Hope this helps.

My picture seems oversized so when viewing it you cant see everything.


What source are you using? Cable Box? Cable tuner? DVD? Computer?

Most of the time your TV's remote will have a button that says "Aspect" or "View Mode" or "Zoom" they can stretch zoom and distort the screen and cause this.

If it is a DVD or Set Top Box you may have to go into the menu or set-up screen and change the aspect ratio to that of your TV.

Let me know if that helps, any more details would be great.

Thanks!
