Question about Panasonic PT-65WX51 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Can't get full screen

Hi, Can anybody help? We recently bought our TV used and can't figure out how to get a full picture. The picture is centered on the screen but doesn't cover the full screen, it leaves about 8" on each dark.

Thanks, Deedee

    Sorry, Basically the picture isn't fit to the full size of the screen, 8" on each end of the screen is not being used, but remains dark. I'm starting to think that maybe I don't have the right remote for this unit, because I don't have a format button on the one that I've got.

What does "8 inches on each dark" mean? you can try the format button on the remote and see of this will fix it.

Sounds like the picture tube is starting to go, I don't believe it would be worth repair or even if you can get the parts for a tv that is almost 15 years old, time to buy a new one.

Screen is off centered


Every tv has a secret service menu accessed through a secret sequence of buttons on your non-secret remote.

With the power off, press this button sequence:

mute
1
8
2
power on

You should now be seeing the secret service menu.

TOUCH NOTHING IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT DOES!!!!!!!!!
Before you touch ANYTHING write down what the initial setting was. I mean it mister.
I think hitting volume down selects an option, while hitting "menu" takes you out of that option and into the area you were just in. There are lots of things to do here.

Before you do anything, go to the video options (there ought to be four of them), under one of them (second one I think) is the option to turn VM or SVM on or off (a setting of "zero" is off). For God's sake turn this off. I think it says "VM level" or something. Anything that says "VM" needs to be set to zero.

Now, to center the picture, I think you'll want the very top menu at the start of the service menu. One is horizontal something and the other is vertical something. BTW, it helps to have a test pattern for overscan when doing this. Do you own a copy of Digital Video Essentials? You should. Again, write down settings before you change them, so if you screw up you can fix it. To save your settings, keep hitting menu until you're back to the first screen, and hit mute twice. Then turn your tv off and back on. After using the service menu, my tv is always put in "dynamic" picture mode. Never, ever, ever use this mode. It will make the picture way too bright and kill your tv before its time. Use DVE or another calibration DVD to get the settings right on your tv.

BTW, you can also correct overscan in the service menu, but I wouldn't push it lower than 5%.

Most HDTVs cannot properly stretch incoming HD signals, however, if the programme is true HD, you should not much of the image off-screen - most new HDTVs have about 2% overscan and the tickers should be on screen when watched in the appropriate stretch mode.

Hitachi 53SDX89BA


I also have a Hitachi 53SDX89BA and I bought it with the same assumption as you: that it's HD ready. The specs in the manual states the following: "Full 1080i HDTV Capatable with Set-Top Box". I beleive this means that it does not include an HD tuner, but that it is capable of handling up to 1080i resolution. Normal (non-HD) resolution on this TV is 480i.

So here's my problem: Until recently, I wasn't using the HD settings on this TV because I don't have a set top box, nor do I subscribe to any HD content from my cable provider. However, I just purchased an XBox 360 along with an XBox 360 HD-DVD player (it's an XBox peripheral that works with the game console). The Xbox asks you to choose the resolution output (480i, 720i or 1080i) to match your TV's HD capabilities. When I select 1080i output and change my TV's settings to receive an HD signal, the picture quality is amazing. However, the video signal seems to get lost ocassionally (i.e. TV picture gets scrambled) but then it comes right back. This does not happen when I select a 480i output on the Xbox...but of course, the picture isn't as crisp and clear as a 1080i picture.

I don't know if this is a problem with the TV or with the Xbox. Has anybody else had this problem??

Yellow Spot dead center on screen


most likely the yellow dot is due to a burn in the picture on the "green" lens. It's not removable because it's burned it, but you can try cleaning it because sometimes, dots are caused by dirt. The worst that can occur is that if the dot is permanant.
