Vertical over scan

News trailer on "Fox News" displays below bottom bezel with just a bit of the top of the words showing. Is there an adjustment for correction? This condition was present when set was received.

    Help! Tried above steps in quotes without plus signs [none on my remote] but with power button. This shuts set down and when restarted it is normal Pressing menu button brings up the normal menu but nothing to set screen settings. All of this was tried using the Source button to switch to TV input. What am I doing wrong? Nossar

    Thanks, edcarsonjr. Looked at all listings on service menu but could not spot anything about vertical scan with my trifocals. You were right--- there are a lot on "Whatisits" listed on that menu. Recognized very few of the listings. Can you steer me in the right direction? Sorry it took so long to get back to you but have had a lot of downtime with the pc. Ed

There is a way to adjust your screen size. You need to access the service menu on the set. With your remote, Press "mute+1+8+2+power" to access it. Be very careful doing this,as not to change your other factory settings. Good luck and don't forget to send feedback to fixya. Let me know - edcarsonjr

Vertical scan output failure. Check and repalce the vertical scan output IC. Horizontal scan is OK. That's why you see a horizontal line instead of raster.

Can't see words displayed at bottom of screen


Check your menu for horozontal and vertical size adjustment to see if you can reduce the size of the image. Or try to change the aspect ratio. Last resort is to do a system reset.

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.
