Question about Hitachi 51G500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Unable to see scores

When I watch sports I don't see the top part of the screen. I am not able to see the score line. The same thing is true for the bottom. At times people's heads at the top are cut off. When I first bought this television I 'expanded' the screen to get rid of the black lines at the tip and bottom. I have been having this issue since. Any solutions???

Mitsubishi TV Model #WS65903 - Green Shadow Lines on Screen

Something is not right here--The green is adjustable in the TECH menu--did this person adjust or try to adjust in the customer or the TECH menu?

If you confirm actual model number I can tell you how to get into the TECH menu--yes--green will not adjust in customer menu--it determines geometry and is only adjusted in the TECH menu.

Also, this set requires any convergence adjustments to be done in 480 and then in 1080--if only adjusted in one mode the other will still be bad.

Let me know if you know how to adjust in TECH menu or not--with exact model number I can tell you how to get there.

If this helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Picture size won't fit screen. Can't see scrolling text at bottom (e.g. sports scores on ESPN)

hi there,

its probably not the tv but the set top box you need to fix. go to the settings and select the mode you want ie. widescreen 16:9 etc

then go to the tv and select the full mode or widescreen mode at 16:9

that should solve your problem. it takes some time to find the combination between the set top box and the tv to get it right

good luck

Download the service manual and you'll find that there's a service mode that allows you to adjust convergence. Also, there's some adjustment knobs behind the right front speaker assembly
