Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Going nuts!! I cant seem to get the partial zoom to disappear as a format. The bottom half and the top half and both sides of the TV are cut off.....any suggestions? When I hit the format button all I get are 2 selections wide expand and standard...but when i change channels in the top right hand corner it always says HD partial zoom - I take it that this is the problem? Driving me crazy....anyone who can help will be much appreciated as Mits has not emailed me back with a solution as I have emailed them 3 times.

If you are using Dish Network, while in SAT mode, hit the star key on the remote (also labled FORMAT). It will start scrolling through certain modes: zoom, partial zoom, normal, stretch... etc)

Picture seems to big for TV.cant read bottom words on screen and words are cut off on side also. Cant see scrores on any sports or read peoples names on bottom of the screen

Using the menu or settings button on your remote, access the TV's menu and find the area for picture settings and zoom. You're likely set to a zoom mode, so cycle through the options until you find the zoom setting that sizes to your TV best. (On most widescreens, the best picture is often on the setting 'panarama.'

How do i remove the top half of the back seat in a 1986 caprice. i removed the bottom half with ease but cant seem to find how to remove the top. And im also having trouble removing the door panels

There will be 2 bolts (possibly anchored to the seat belts) on both outer sides ( they may be 18mm nuts or T-50 torx head bolts). Remove them and lift the rear seat straight up, as they lock into hooks in the rear partial shelf.

Part of the picture is being cut off, how do i

Just called Sony about this same problem...taking your CABLE BOX remote, push the # key on the bottom right of the remote (it also says HD Zoom on mine). You can cycle through 4 or 5 zoom options...make sure you are on an HD channel to see the changes. :)

My TV picture cuts off on the top and bottom

Check what format you are in. 4:3 is like a regular tv. Sides will be cut off in this format on a widescreen tv. 16:9 zoomed will cut of top & bottom slightly. You want just regular 16:9. No zoom.

My tv zooms in and changes the format.

This is normal - you are zooming in on the picture. Most people use the zoom feature to "stretch" a widescreen movie so it will fit the screen.

Full Zoom Mode Problem

Look on your remote and see if there is a "Format" button, press this to cycle through the different format options, and find one that fits.

If there is not a Format button on your remote, try looking in the setup menus and see if there is an option for formatting or zoom.

Cant see full picture w/ Vizio 32in HDTV

You would look for a format button on your remote.
Dish Network: bottom left the asterisk "*" button
DirecTV: top left, second from the top labelled "format"
Cable remote: look for format, zoom, or aspect ratio

Pressing this button should scroll you through the options.

Mits WD 52525 format issue.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected
