Re: Plasma TV picture adjustment

Use your remote to reconfigure the picture. There may be a picture button on the remote that will switch the picture from 4:3, 16:9, Standard, Stretch, and so forth.

Picture is cut off on both top and bottom. adjusting aspect ratio doesn't fix the problem

Sounds like a power supply problem. You could just change the board , that the easiest way. If you have some knowledge of components you could look at the capacitors on the Power Supply board and if you find some leaking (brown liquid), or bulging I would change those out.

Pioneer plasma tv picture is cutting off heads

Issue may be adjustable in the Tech menu with your remote---you need to see if you can find the service manual (with schematics and information about getting into that menu and how to adjust).

Try to GOOGLE MODEL NUMBER WITH service manual or contact Pioneer.

How come the top and sometimes the bottom of my screen are cut off

Not all bradcast are in 16:9 resolution (wide screen). Most are still in 4:3 (old TV).
Sometime the advertisements are in 16:9 letterbox to project correctly on 4:3 TV and TV logo or titles are on the bottom or top of the picture. If TV is set to project wide screen, these logos or writings will be cut off.
If you have an option to switch TV resolution from remount, you will see whole picture.
Check your TV manual for settings.
