The problem is an assembly called the "Flex Converter". This is not available from Hitachi, even though the set is relatively new. The converter must be removed from the set and sent out to Hitachi for repair.

It depends what you're watching: For regular TV, cable, satellite and DVD then you just need to use the Aspect ratio button. It is the PIX SHAPE button. Make sure all your source boxes have their picture menus set for a 16:9 (widescreen) TV.

If you are watching Blu-ray, then the situation is different. Blu-ray expects that you have a 16:9 TV. If you use a Blu-ray player to watch a DVD, and that DVD is an older 4:3 shape movie, then you'll be stuck with the bars left and right. It's the player that formats the picture in that way. There's nothing you can do with the TV controls because they'll be locked to 16:9 mode.

Vizio tv

Many Visio tv's have the same problem, and also reversed - picture and no sound. The quick fix is to disconnect the power cord at TV - then hold in the power button (usually found on left side 1/4 up from bottom of screen , located on the side/back of the set. a square button all alone) - hold power button in for 30 1,000 mississippi's, yes, that is what a Visio tech told me and it works. I was lucky enough to have the problem start before the 30 return policy ended at Walmart - decided I did not want a product that obviously has a chip failure coming soon! I exchanged for a Samsung and have not looked back!

While watching an HD program live or recorded when paused picture goes dark after 10 seconds then comes back on after 30 seconds. Does not happen when watching SD programs. TV is new.

sounds like its simply just your tv's auto screen saver or another program along those lines its helps prevent burn in and other issues caused by leaving your tv with still images ok :) dont fret

Samsung 650 lcd 40" tv picture blacks out for a few seconds.

Dude, better check your cable and also your TV's power management settings. This might also happen due a issue with the HDMI output of the satellite box.

Mitsubishi TV picture rolling

Look on the back and see if you have an adjuster.(It should say
H-HOLD) Just turn it very slowly until the picture stops rolling,You can do this by watching the tv screen in a mirror.

Same problem: picture goes out

Sounds like you need to replace the lamp. The owners manual should show you how to replace the lamp. You can order the lamp through Sony on their website. Good Luck
