Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Can't view entire screen

I have an issue where the picture on my TV is very limited. Whether something is in HD or regular TV, the left and right edges along with the top and bottom edges are cut off. So, the picture fills te entire screen but I'm unable to view subtitles, people's heads are cut off and anything to the extreme left or right are cut off as well. I've already try pressing the format button on the remote and the TV is connected to a Scientific Atlanta 8300 DVR/HD reciever via the HDMI cable.

Re: Can't view entire screen

Make sure that you tv is set to the "standard" format and then try changing the aspect ratio on the cable box.

Samsung HDTV model HLR5067W screen flickers when some commercials play other commercials are ok when viewing. Could this be my HD set top box or a cable?

If the TV works well with your dvd and regular programs there are no issues and the flickers due to commercials can be due to excess signal strength or even poor control from the set top box.
Try with another set top box to confirm as some of them can process noise which can cause this issue.

How do I expand my Tv screen

If the physical size of your screen is 4:3 the only thing it can show is a compressed version. The screen is physically not able to show the true 16:9 version. The true 16:9 HD signal has been developed to show on a screen that is twice as wide as it is long or 16:9 ratio. Your screen is almost square or 4:3 ratio. I hope this helps. Thanks for using fixya.

I bet you are using a cable box or satelite receiver. If so check for aspect buttons on the remote that control these devices. I know comcast says "HD Zooom".

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.

Side shadows on picture

it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam
