Hi what you need to do is change the viewing screen to wide screen or auto if you enter the setup menu using the telly control you should then find a menu for the screen so either select 16/9 widescreen or put it on auto this should then solve your problem

Screen remains black, audio is good, word satelite remains on screen, screen shows volume increase/decrease, TV works OK off DVD player.


Your TV is most likely working ok. If you are using a satellite receiver then re-boot it by unplugging for 2 min then try again.

Color bar


Sounds like the TV is defective, if I were you I would take it back. There probably isn't much you can do on your own to fix it.

50 INCH HITACHI ULTRAVISION HAS COLOR DIFFERENCE ON EDGE OF SCREEN


Hey, I found this on a blogsite about lcd rear projections....looks like our tv's screens have been burned by the "pillers" that surround the tv when switching from 4:3 to 16:9 or fullscreen... read below, I hope it helps !
cheers!

Rear projection crt's,the first generation widescreen tv's were notorious for that.Lcd and plasma can have the same problem,but it takes much longer and is not as harsh.Dlp's use tiny mirrors,so it isn't a problem with them.Lcd and plasma tv's should be ok unless you watch them with blck bars on them all the time.
We have lcd monitors at work,and i've seen them after a year with bad burn in.They also run 24 hrs a day 7 days a week with the same display.



GKar posted 2006 Oct 10 15:31 TooLFooL : i have 51" sony rear-projection and those freakin' grey bars burned themselves right into the screen...

I read that to avoid the burning you had to limit your 4:3 viewing time to 15% of total time viewed. (applied to my TV but apparently yours and others as well...great! now they tell you :-x , this applies unless 4:3 aspect was changed to stretched or zoomed...yuck :-x )

This really sucks as a Star Trek/Lexx/Farscape fan as they are mostly 4:3, fortunately the upconvert player/hdmi combo sends a 1080i 16:9 signal to my TV so the effects are drastically reduced by nearly filling the TV without the grey bars or burn in problem without stretch or zoom modes being used. yay! :wink: (default grey bars set to black automatically, apparently grey isn't needed due to screen area covered is sufficient for burn in not to be a problem.)

Gray bars on the sides


Afraid the set has run in 4X5 mode for to long, If the Pix does not fill the entire screen it will burn the CRT's, usaly the blu and the green, This is covered in the owners manual and not covered by any warentee. So it's about a $700.00 mistake
