Welcome to the world of HD programming. What you are seeing is the different aspect ratios that the movies are filmed in. In some respects there is no fix for it just something you have to live with.

Is this tv hd ready?


Yes, it should be HD ready. There should be a small label on the front of the TV if so (provided it has not been removed). You will need a HD cable box, convertor or HD satellite box (Direct TV or Dish Network) to view HD broadcasts (even from free over-the-air HD broadcasts if you live within range of a local broadcasting station). I had the same, or very similar TV but upgraded to flat screen plasma set.

My picture does not fit the screen. It is as if it is zoomed in too tight. Scores and stats on sports are not visible on screen, etc.


This can usually be solved using the picture size function. Most stations that broadcast in HD now will have part of the screen cut off. On samsungs you can switch between the picture size being 'Normal' and '16:9'. Try both to see what works better.

Have a samsung plasma tv and hav lost some channels on the digital switch over, could you tell us how to retune please. The model number of our plasma is PS50Q97HDX/XEU. Thankyou


Just start from the beginning as if you just bought it. Start with Install and let the set do the rest. Watch the screen for any questions that may require an answer or an Enter command and that should do it.
Take in consideration that some cable companies moved some digital stations to a pay plan and you might not get them in HD. The digital stations you get after programming wil be it, unless you upgrade to a different plan.

Iomega Screen Play HD showing fatal error 05 -


Fatal Error 5 is normally indicative of a Disk Failure. Because the OS can't read the portions of the drive.

"and a crack"?
Is the plasma screen actually broken?
If so, you can disregard the following . . .
All digital sets have semiconductors that can control areas from pixel size to the entire screen in an X-Y matrix. When a section of the screen fials, it is because a portion of the drive circuits has failed. In some sets, the final drive circuits are part of the display itself and can't be replaced without replacing the entire display.

No HD picture on HD TV


Yes, you need to buy HD station.
But with DVD you can get HD quality without any other station.

Samsung Model: HP-R4262 42" Plasma Problem, pink pixelation/ghosting


Onece the plasma heats up it shrinks a little, i think the cause is that you are low on plasma, so when i heats it shrinks and since the plasma cycles, the area low on plasma wil move slowly around the screen, take this to a repairman and more plasma can be added to it.

Vertical portion pixelats then forms solid vertical lines. Problem intermitent but persistant. The tv is 2 years old, if its the lcd panel is it worth repairing? I think I have the same problem with a...


Note
In some cases, there are minor defects in some parts of the screen. Points that do not light, points with
brightness different from that of the periphery, or points with color different from that of the periphery.
Some pixels will always be on or always off. Please note that this is not a malfunction. So what this says is that it's not the Plasma Cell problem, its more like a bad board inside. You will need more info like schematic and find out which area the bad part is in.

Just got digital hd


If you press the zoom- button on your remote it will give you options for the screen size. The "stretch" option might help.
