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.

Hi, Turn your TV on, select the menu and see if there is something in picture settings (wide screen or full screen) Try to connect a DVD player using HDMI cable. See if there is any difference.
Some DVD players will also have screen sizing. If nothing helps contact TV repair. Good luck

Picture not centered on my philips 47'' lcd tv


NOTE:(Edited and copied from another thread on Fixya.com, c7carl)

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD
By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007
Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago

I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.

    WOW! It works!! The picture on my Magnavox (aka Philips) 37MF321D had shifted to the right. I figured I had a big repair bill coming up soon. But hey! Just used the TV remote as described by "Guest', and re-centered the picture to the left. Wallah! Thanks ""Guest" whomever you are! Reply

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.
