Ah split screen just another way of getting two picture in one screen, or sport for he and Opra for her.
Fisrt you must understand what split screen is, it is taking two information from different source and sending the info to the micro to devide the info for two seperat image.
Well something like that but I know you were inpress,
Yes you can. Take the main source you or using I would say the TV box in cable connection or av1 and then your DVD or and VCR to source av2 or 3. When presing split screen or pip you will get one screen showing the main source your tv box and the second your dvd (or VCR) in the source input solector you should be able to change the second amage input with input solector and the tv box change the other.
Oh what a butiful life aint it.
Try this with 7 different source, Cable, satelite, fta, dvd, camera, gaming sytem, and computor,... well that another chapter.

I cant get it to work on full screen


I am having this same problem as this one above (62HM95). The issue I'm having is that it will also not work full screen. I selected the 'Split' option on the remote and the picture on the left is fine... absolutely clean and perfect, with audio. The picture on the right is completely distorted in very strange colors (mostly constant variations of purple), with audio as well. You should note, that the same video information was feed into different imputes to select for the split. In other words, I feed the cable stream into the TV using the component video (Y B R) as well as the coaxial cable and selected both options for the purposes of displaying the same information side-by-side. On screen I selected video option four (4 for color stream HD) and option (0 for cable/antenna). If I highlight either side and select one of them (4 or 0) the screen goes full screen and I see nothing but one solid color of purple. I've researched the purple and they call it 'Electric Purple'. That is all I see... just the solid purple, with the audio. What I have also noticed is that, If toggle between imputes while in the full screen option and come back to either option (4 or 0) the image plays/appears OK for about 2 seconds then goes back to solid purple. I just can't understand why this is happening especially when the on-screen menu displays perfectly fine. I cannot enjoy this TV by only watching half of it in split mode. Besides the multiple replacement bulbs I've had to buy I've completely had it with this TV

How do you reset the bulb life counter after you put in a new bulb?


For models:
PT-44LCX65/PT-52LCX65/PT-61LCX65/PT-52LCX15.
1) Make sure the TV is on.
2) While pressing and holding down VOL DOWN button on the TV, press and hold down the SPLIT DVD/VCR CH UP button on the remote until a message appears on the screen that the lamp timer has been reset. If this does not work, use SPLIT DVD/VCR CH DOWN instead.

Good luck

Split screen question


To get a split screen working on this set, you will need to do the following steps.

1. Put a splitter on the incoming cable.
2. One side will go to the digital cable box and one to the tuner on the television. (Ant A)
3. Hook the digital cable box using the video out from the box to Input 1 on the set.
That should do it now select your digital cable on Input 1, and then select the split screen source as Antenna A. You may have to switch sources to select a different input.

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


This sound like a problem with the Closed Caption, on many sets if the C.C. is set to text a black box apears, and since it only happens on DVD you might look at the DVD menu and see if it has this Text featcher in the Closed Caption menu and turn it off
