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!!

I want ot change my LG television Model 47LH40 to 1080p using my LG remote


1080p video resolution can only be achieved by a Blu-ray Disc. Satellite TV, broadcast TV, cable TV do not actually send out 1080p resolution. So unless you are using a Blu-ray movie, you will not be viewing 1080p. Your HDTV has a NATIVE screen resolution and the TV will SCALE all incoming video to its native resolution. Most people cannot tell the difference between 720p and 1080i. 1080p signal sources are slightly sharper. But if you have a HDTV that is 1080p capable and you give it a 1080p source (Blu-ray Disc) and use a HDMI cable to connect, you will get 1080p, you do not have to change the HDTV as it will automatically display 1080p.

I have a VL470M and am trying to connect a LGBD570 Blu-Ray through HDMI. It works fine through the composite input, but the HDMI says "no signal". Am I doing something wrong?


There are two possible issues. 1) The resolutions are mismatched. (output of the player and input of the TV) 2) the player can not confirm that the TV supports HDCP over the HDMI connection. Only 3 of the 4 HDMI ports are HDCP (high def copy protection) compatible.

Try a different HDMI port and make sure that you have the input set to the correct HDMI port. (There is an input button on the side of the TV as well as on the remote.)

The easiest things to check are turn off the Blu-Ray player and then turn it on again. Then press the Home button and navigate to the Setup Menu. Select Display and press the right arrow button, then select Resolution and press Enter. Then set the desired resolution and press Enter to confirm the selection. (Your TV should support 1080p from the Blu-ray player.) Then turn off the player since changing the resolution can lead to video issues.

I hope this helps.

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.

I bought an insignia 26" 1080p yesterday and the display shows that the tv is currently showing the picture at 720p. How can i adjust this so that it is 1080


Generally speaking, your TV will display the signal it receives. DVD player output, for example, is 480p, but an upconvert DVD player can output the signal at 720p or 1080p. You should adjust your components (e.g. cable/satellite box, DVD/Blu-ray players, etc.) to the desired compatible output.

The blu ray DVD is not loading or starting on my new set


Without knowing your make and model of your equipment my provided help is limited to generalization. However, if the problem is in fact caused by disc loading then your TV is not part of the cause.

First make sure that your blu ray player is up to date on it's firmware version. Refer to it's manual on the methods of obtaining updated firmware installations...in many cases you will be able to download the newest version from the manufacturers website and create a disc that you would then put into the player, and the player will automatically perform what needs to be done.

If the firmware is up to date, then make sure that your TV input resolution is compatible with the output resolution of the player. Not only does the TV need to be "hi-def" but in some cases you must also manually select from the player which resolution format you would like to view. For example, if your TV has the maximum capability of resolution output of 1080i and you would like to view that, then select 1080i on the player, or 720p if the disc is a blu ray format. If you select 1080p, you will NOT get a picture because the TV cannot produce it if it is rated to 1080i.

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.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

Dvd is grainy picture


You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!
