Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

Stretched picture I've got an older tv (not HD). When I first turn on the tv the picture is very stretched out. It takes 20-30 minutes for the picture to look almost normal again. It never completely gets back to normal. Any suggestions

Sometimes the TV will not turn off, sometimes it won't turn on. It has also flipped through all picture formats (zoom, stretch, standard) on its own, had 1/2 the picture blank, and has randomly turned the...

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

It say 480 stretch on the screen how do I turn it to 1080 for my Hd tv

Make it sure that you have a 1080 signal from your source(eg. HD receiver, bluray player etc.). Try pressing format button on the remote until you get full picture . Or try changing the format or aspect ration in your satellite or cable box.

How can i change the aspect ratio on RCA mm52110. the HD picture is stretched tall but very clear.

I'm going to take a stab at this out of the dark but okay!
1) is there an 'Aspect' or a 'picture size' button on your hand held remote control?
2) If you scroll through your 'On Screen Menu's' do you find a feature that will change the aspect or picture size?
Many of these TV's have this button feature on the remote control.

Picture doesn't fit screen

If you haven't tried to change the format yet, try that first. Most of these tv's have a wide range of options from full to wide to split etc. Stretch would probably work in most hd formats.

Using Hitachi's 53SDX89BA High-def settings w/ HD-DVD

look at these see if this helps

Most HDTVs cannot properly stretch incoming HD signals, however, if the programme is true HD, you should not much of the image off-screen - most new HDTVs have about 2% overscan and the tickers should be on screen when watched in the appropriate stretch mode.
