Question about Panasonic (TH-50PZ700U) Television

1080p Prob with TH-50PE700U



I just purchased a new Panasonic TH-50PE700U TV and when viewing a Blu Ray DVD (LG Dual Player) and outputting in 1080p mode the picture is cropped and shifts to the upper left hand side of the screen. The "FBI Warnings" at the beginning of the movie are in full screen, but once it switches back to the movie content the image shifts back.

When the picture is shifted it is VERY sharp and clear, but cropped and I obviously want to view movies in full screen mode. When outputing in 1080i mode for the same movie the picture is normal and in full screen mode.

Am I missing a setting somewhere? The Owners Manual and Panasonic's website are no help in diagnosing the problem and Customer Support is closed.

Thanks for any help!!

We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?


component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

Which dvd player is good to be purchased?? I use original DVDs and copied ones also


I like the kind that can play numerous formats and has a USB slot for movies downloaded from the internet. Sony has always been my player of choice. Panasonic is a good one as well.

How do I play DVD on the BlueRay player?


According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.

I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

MODEL NUMBER: VBR231

*Model Features:
* Full HD 1080p Video Playback
* Integrated Dual Band Wi-Fi - 802.11n
* 7.1 Digital Audio Output
* Backwards Compatible (see below)

*Compatibility:
* Plays Blu-ray and DVDs, Audio CDs, MP3s and Jpegs
* Multi-Channel 7.1 Audio Output via HDMI
* Playback and Enjoy Media via back USB Input (JPEGs and MP3s)

*Outputs:
* HDMI 1.3
* Component Video (YCrCB)
* Composite Video
* Stereo Audio
* Coaxial Audio
* Optical Digital Audio

I hope that helps somewhat.

Does my Toshiba 37HLV66 LCD TV/DVD Combination have the capacity to properly accommodate a Blu-Ray player? Some technicians I have asked say, "yes" and others say "no."


This can be both yes and no. Looking at the specs of your TV it would not be displaying in full 1080p (The highest resolution for HD)
The best part of Blu-Ray is viewing this in 1080p. Your TV can accommodate a BD player and would be best set up using the HDMI input port on your TV. But, it will limited to your resolution of 720p or 1366 x 768 on your TV and most DVD players can upscale the quality of a movie to 720p or higher. It would be worth getting a TV that has 1080p to go with a Blu-Ray Player.

I have an LG47le5400 tv and a LG blu ray player bd570. While using the player with any kind of dvd I start to get picture drop out after 30 minutes play time. The screen goes blank for 1 to 2 seconds...


I have the same problem! Viewing regular t.v. is fine, as is any VHS tape. But when playing DVD or Blu-Ray, I get dropouts. I've tried three different players and two different HDMI cables. So it must be the HDMI receiver within the actual LG t.v. Would love to know how to fix this without having to replace the television.

My new Blu-Ray player will not send out an HDMI signal, except when I turn it on. It shows the Blu-Ray sign, then stops sending out any signal. is this a common problem?


This is not a common problem.

It sounds like you are receiving signal from the DVD player, but are having a resolution issue. After the splash screen is when the resolutions setting can affect your output. What this sounds like is the DVD player is set to 1080P and the TV is only capable of 720P or 1080i. If there is a resolution mis-match, connect a composite cable to the TV and set the resolution of the DVD player to AUTO, then check to see if you have an image from the HDMI connection.

If your TV is capable of 1080P and if this solution does not fix the problem, and all other outputs from the player perform the same, the unit is faulty and should be returned if still under warranty.

Hope this helps!

The problem has been solved. A previous post to this site was having a similar problem hooking up a Playstation Blu Ray player to the same TV.

A solution was posted to that problem and I followed the same instructions.

It has to do with the set up porgram on the Blu Ray component. You need to select Settings then 108024Bit needs to be set to off.

1080P video via HDMI generates awful interference


Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.
