Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I just bought an olevia 242V and the menu is a little hard to navigate. I read that in the reviews and I was ready but to set up the picture size it doesnt matter if I push full screen zoom 1 or 2 the picture still doesnt fill the whole screen. I have black lines on each side. What do I need to be doing to fix this and set my tv up right?

My TV has color adjustment issues and clearity,I currently do not have a remote for this TV..The picture changes sizes when programing changes. I can access the menu,but it is hard to make changes to any...


The cooling fluid used in those will cloud with age and cause the set to loose focus and cause the colors to be 'blotchy'. A good repair shop can do that but it is labor intensive and expensive.

The picture changing is likely to be the automatic format set in the customer menu.

The trim and screen protector seems to be NLA (no longer available). Any clear, clean piece of plexiglass can be used, Make it larger than the screen and use heavy duty double stick tape.

Picture is cut off on the bottom of my Hitachi 57F500


Verical position is hard to adjust and is in service menu. A service manual will get you there, but you might get lucky with the vertical size adjustment. If you open the front of the TV, the vertical size is adjusted with a knob on the deflection board. Remove the speaker grille and take off the access panel. You will see two knobs, one horizontal and one vertical. Be careful, those red wires have 30,000 volts on then, don't touch anything but those knobs. If its just an adjustment, the v-size knob will fix. Set it so ESPN ticker is just above the bottom of the screen. *Service mode - the manual tells little but entering is done by "press and hold the input button, press the power button, release both after you hear HV come up" .. the v-pos parameter is in there, but this manual doesn't say where or how to adjust, procede at your own risk. If you get into trouble, pull the power so you don't save any settings. I believe you just navigate through the menus to find the parameter and use arrows to adjust. Enter may save. Sorry the service manual I have tells nothing much.

Just bought a new HDTV, a Phillips to be exact. While swaping between the guide screen and the actual channel your watching, the screen size keeps adjusting. Is this due to a specific setting on the tv,...


Some tv's have a setting in the menu that automaticly switches picture size. Going back and forth from picture to guide may be triggering this setting. You may be able to go into the menu and turn it off.

Model 51f59a hd widescreen aspect settings dont take and picture too big


I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.
