Re: tv is zooming in and out

Sounds like you need convergence IC's. Don't let them use GENERICS/KNOCK OFF'S!!!

My RCS HD52W67 is showing three pictures on the screen. I have tried zooming, but it only makes all three pictures larger. I cannot get it to only show one screen. What can I do?

Your TV most likely has a convergence failure. You can get parts and instructions from Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem Screen looks 3D Colors don't line up One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu. Screen is bowed or warped.

Top and bottom of screen are cut off how do we adjust to get screen to fit

Press the "Aspect" button on the remote until the picture looks appropriate. You are probably trying to display a 4:3 ratio channel on your 16:9 ratio TV. You are probably viewing it in "zoom" mode, which does not stretch the 4:3 ratio video, but enlarges it until it fits the width of the screen, which zooms part of the video off the top and bottom of the screen.

Picture zoomed in and now not all picture is showing

Did you try to zoom out?

When you zoom in, your TV removes some portion from the edges of the picture and shows the rest full-screen.

If you want zooming out instructions, please provide information about your TV's make and model.

Thank you.

My picture is warped or bending in the middle

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects

My picture is zoomed in, the picture is too big for the screen. I've tried a hard reset, and I have the factory remote, but I can't seem to even find the zoom option. how can i un-zoom my tv?

there may not be a zoom option but there should be a ratio setting i.e 16x9,4.3 letter box i had that problem and found it in my display settings my screen resolution was changed to 16x9 zoom

My TV picture cuts off on the top and bottom

Check what format you are in. 4:3 is like a regular tv. Sides will be cut off in this format on a widescreen tv. 16:9 zoomed will cut of top & bottom slightly. You want just regular 16:9. No zoom.

Your TV set may have settings for picture size ratios but also if you have cable or sattelite service, they too may have these settings. Try both TV and cable remocons for proper adjustment
