The problem is now when I am watching HD on normal I can still see those lines very faintly,like they are burnt in there.

You now have burn in of the crt's. this happens when you leave a static image on the screen for long peroids of time (more than 15% of your total veiwing time per week). you should limit the time you use the pillar bars to less than that. this is not repairable but over time it will fade. stop using the pillar bars for a long wile or it will get worse. the only cure for this is to replace all three crts (costly repair).

Black bar on the top and bottom during watching the tv


Hello

If you are watching television and you see black lines on the left and right sides of the screen, check to see if you are watching an HD broadcast or a standard definition broadcast. You can do this by bringing up the TV guide menu on your remote. If the show is in HD, it should take up the full screen. However, if it is not HD, bars will be present on the left and right of the screen. That is because standard definition programing is in 4x3, which will not take up the entire screen.

If the picture you are watching not only has black bars on the sides, but on the tops and bottoms of the screen as well, your "Zoom" mode has somehow gotten off-kilter. Press the "Zoom" button on the remote until the image appears correct. If this does not work, power down the television, wait a few moments, and power the TV back on. The image should be correct now.

If the image on the screen looks stretched or squished, this is because your HD cable receiver is not set up properly for your widescreen television. Press the "Menu" button on the receiver

Picture is not as crisp as plasma should be.


The only thing you can do really is check your television settings to make sure its set up correctly and the satellite settings. Also if your watching analog channels through your set there gonna look fuzzy and distorted with blotches sometimes and also remember the bigger your tv the further back your supposed to sit if you stand right infront of it you'll see everything the way its not meant to be seen. after you try all that make sure your using either component or hdmi cables for the best picture.

I can't get the full screen on some hd channels and during commercials. It goes from full screen viewing on some channels to the picture shrinking and having a border around it.


There are a few picture sizes out there 4:3, 16:9, as well as some for movie screens. New televisions are 16:9 and when you are watching a true HD program, it will fill the screen perfectly. However the program may be broadcast in one of the other formats. This results in the bars on top/ bottom or on the sides. This is true for commercials too. If the commercial is or isn't in HD will determine if there are bars or not. All this is normal operation.

I am getting black borders top & bottom on some channels and side to side as well on Fox on my Dish Net receiver 322 to analog TV.


Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here. The black borders are usually caused by watching standard definition programming on a high definition television. Try to change the format on your tv. Either by pressing the * button below the 7, or trying a format or display button on the original tv remote. Hope this helps!!!

My 32 inch samsung lcd tv has got faint black lines running down the screen ,its nearly 4 years old but i expected it to last longer than that,and ive had sky hd box recently would that have anything todo...


Are these lines on both side of the screen or what location are they in? They can be caused by watching 4:3 television with the black bars on both sides. Watching 16:9 full screen HD wont cause issues with that. If only on the sides there is not much you can do except put a pure white screen on the TV and leave that on for at least 6 hours. This will age the panel a little but in theroy wil even the pixel burn you have to make the lines less noticable. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you

Vertival Color Lines


We had the same thing happen to us on the right-hand side. A technician told us yesterday that the Motorola Cable Box (supplied by Shaw Cable) places a border on Non-True HD Channels. Because we didn't place our picture setting to 'full-screen' each time we viewed these channels and burn line was created. He gestimated a replacement screen runs about $800.00 Canadian, but we have a 3 year extended warranty and will receive a new TV. He also said it happens on all big screen tv's that use a cable box creating borders on Non-True HD Channels.

I can assure you that LCD burn in CAN and DOES happen! My frequently-viewed Futures Trading software has left a ghostly image of the toolbars, menus, and window borders on my ViewSonic 36" LCD flat-screen.

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2" black border on Philips LCD


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.

Black borders


Check the resolution settings on your cable box, you may have to call your cable provider to find out how to get into the settings menu, there is a stretch function in the settings that should make all the lower channels auto fit your screen, also see if there's a p=size button on your remote control, try pushing that when on the channels that have sidebars.
