Question about Sony KP-53HS30 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Viewing HDTV on a Sony 53" KP-53HS30

I'm curious about whether or not it will be harmful to display an HD picture on this TV...

When I got my cable installed, the cable guy said that becuase this TV does not have a 16:9 aspect ratio (its 4:3) it could only display HD with black bars on the top and bottom,,, He said that over time these black bars would get burned into the screen and become permanent...

Does anyone know if this is true?

I concur that the black bars will not burn in, since they are made by NOT projecting any light there's no issue. Possibly if you have a DVR or cable box which can change the color from black to something like grey you might get burn in, but since it's a projection TV it's still highly unlikely.

This TV is a projector - not a plasma. I can't see how you would get "burn in" on this set. It should handle an HD picture fine.

According to the tech manual I looked at, it's a bad board - it just doesn't say which board. Sorry. Looks like it's making a trip to the shop.

Good luck.

Progressive scan


progressive scan? does your tv support 720p, or 1080p HD? (the p actually stands for progressive scan).
Another alternative to that is: http://www.playerschoicevideogames.com/pd_psp.cfm

A bit more expensive, but i think it works on any tv.
