Question about Mitsubishi WD-73734 73" Television

1 Answer

HD Channels have grey strip above and below picture?

When the TV is on an HD channel, there is a gray strip above and below the picture as well as a black strip on either side. Is this a condition of HD channels or is this a specific problem? Also, below the top gray strip, there is a line (which is video interference or noise, I believe) that separates the top gray strip from the picture. I would appreciate some assistance with regard to these issues.

If the problem does not occur on ordinary channel please contact your local station and ask for the proper settings for viewing HD in your area.

You need HD cable to go from your top box to your tv.

RCA D56W20 picture problems

More information is required to properly troubleshoot this problem. How is your television connected when you are watching HD? Do you have HDMI for this, do you have a satellite or digital cable box? For analogue are you using regular coax antenna (cable TV), or are you going through a cable or satellite box?
This could be related to the aspect ration setting. perhaps you ahve changed your aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3 or some other setting. If you are connected via HDMI, then the digital signal may be "normalizing" your picture during HD, but reverting back to the other setting.

Check you video settings very carefully. HD televisions are very difficult to tweak properly.
