Very bottom of broadcast appears at top 1/8" of screen

Looks like entire picture is just a little too low and needs to be shifted up.

    t, your help with solving my "red gun goes wacko" problem has helped me solve this one as well. after removing and replacing rear-upper panel w/ the mirror, i noticed the entire picture was 2" too low, and, the thin line of light at the top was there as well. bottom line - my mirror was just slightly out of quilter.

    anyway, thanks again

How do I make the picture bigger so it fills the screen and not have black bands at top and bottom


Banding of the screen usually means that the aspect ratio of the broadcast is different than the screen size ratio. Most modern TVs are 16:9 ratio. Most modern TV broadcasts and movies are as well. In those cases, when in HD mode, you will see the picture fill the entire screen. Older broadcasts and many syndicated reruns are in the old 4:3 format and will be banded. Also, some movies are in larger formats than 16:9 and will reduce in size in order to get the entire picture on the screen. That being said, most TVs DO have a stretch and.or zoom feature that will expand all images to full screen size. Be advised that this can result is image distortion, especially of the 4:3 ration broadcasts. Others will have some of the picture cut off and you may see some items such as network logos, etc. partially chopped off in this mode.

Black bar on the top and bottom during watching the tv


Hello

If you are watching television and you see black lines on the left and right sides of the screen, check to see if you are watching an HD broadcast or a standard definition broadcast. You can do this by bringing up the TV guide menu on your remote. If the show is in HD, it should take up the full screen. However, if it is not HD, bars will be present on the left and right of the screen. That is because standard definition programing is in 4x3, which will not take up the entire screen.

If the picture you are watching not only has black bars on the sides, but on the tops and bottoms of the screen as well, your "Zoom" mode has somehow gotten off-kilter. Press the "Zoom" button on the remote until the image appears correct. If this does not work, power down the television, wait a few moments, and power the TV back on. The image should be correct now.

If the image on the screen looks stretched or squished, this is because your HD cable receiver is not set up properly for your widescreen television. Press the "Menu" button on the receiver

I have a Panasonic PT-53wx54 HDTV. The text on the ticker on the bottom of the screen that stations like CNN run is not completely visible, only the top of the letters show as they travel across the...


The set is probably in the wrong display format for the channels you are watching. Look through the setup menus for "Display format" or "Display mode". You need the menu that sets the picture for "480i", "720p", "1080p", etc. Set it for 1080p and see if that fixes it. The lower settings won't show all of the lines for a 1080p picture; they are used for old-style analog video or low-bandwidth broadcasts.

Disclaimer: this is general information and may not apply exactly to your particular model. You may still have to find your owner's manual or download a copy to find out how to correct the settings.

Frigidaire gallery microwave door sags


Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.

Can't read stuff at bottom of screen


it is possible the picture format is set to stretched. look for a button on the remote that can do this. it could also be the signal. try looking at a different channel that has lettering along the top and bottom and determine if the entire picture looks like it needs to be moved up. if after all this you can still determine that the picture is misaligned post the model number and i can help you move it up.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.
