The movie was most likely recorded for the PAL system.

On your TV set, you can try setting the aspect ratio. You will have to consult your user manual about how to change the aspect ratio settings. Remember what you did so you can go back.

If the movie was produced with a non standard aspect ratio for your set, there is not much you can do with this...

Pioneer plasma tv picture is cutting off heads


Issue may be adjustable in the Tech menu with your remote---you need to see if you can find the service manual (with schematics and information about getting into that menu and how to adjust).

Try to GOOGLE MODEL NUMBER WITH service manual or contact Pioneer.

Dvd's aren't fitting my screen, the sides and top/bottom is being cut of. I've tried the display menu, zoom, and making it widescreen, and it doesn't work.


Are you playing wide-screen movies on a 4x3=1.33:1 (standard=SD) TV? DVD output by default is SD. Even 16x9=1.78:1 (HD) movies with have top and bottom bars. Many "wide-screen" DVDs are squeezed horizontally so that you have to stretch them. Many theatrical releases are up to 2.7:1 or so. Side bars indicate you have the DVD output set for 4x3 and your TV is HD-like. There are usually controls for the screen format on HD TVs--no controls on SD TV. Hey, early movies were 1:1--take them side bars. More on aspect ratio (AR) in Wiki, I bet. With letterbox of SD you can get "pillar box" with black on all 4 side. Get a better source and/or choose a different AR. -Ken

The picture can be stretched from side to side but the top and bottom always have a large margin. Is there a way to stretch the top and bottom of the picture?


Are we talking about a signal from a dvd player? Possibly an upconverting dvd player. This is a function of the player. Try pan and scan vs letter box setting in thee dvd video setup menu. Your describing letter box. If the image is missing from the side its called side curtain. Scaling on the TV affects the curtain, but not letter box.

Hello shell
I do not believe your problem is with the DVD player. It most likely is with your TV. What happens alot is the picture on a TV is set to a different aspect ratio(ie:4:3,16:9). and sometimes it stretches or zooms the picture, allowing part to be cut off the edge of the screen. This aspect ratio problem can have two causes now that I think of it. The TV or the DVD player. To determine and fix, follow these steps.
PART 1-determining problem-
1 Watch regular TV for awhile and get some infomercials(yes, you have to watch Billy Mayes) on the bottom and edges of the screen, are there words and 800 numbers cut off, if so, your problem is with the TV and skip now to part 2(not step 2)
2 If you can see the whole number and everything , determine if your TV auto adjusts or not. Switch to your DVD player and see if the screens seems to move(shrink or enlarge). If it does shrink or enlarge, your problem is with the DVD player and you can now proceed to part 2.



PART 2-solving problem-
1 By now, you have determined whether the problem is with your tv or dvd player. From this point on "it, it's will refer to whichever has the problem
2 Go into it's menu
3 search for "picture" "video" or "setup"
4 Search for "aspect ratio" or anything containing "4:3" "16:9" or the words "stretch" "zoom" or "widescreen"
5 Set to 4:3 (sometimes 4:3 has multiple options such as stretch, zoom, and normal, if so, select normal)
6 ***OPTIONAL*** If you want widescreen, select 16:9(again if multiple choices, choose normal)
7 Insert or select a DVD and test your subtitles


If this does not work, please post a comment and I will help you further.




Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

Widescreen cinema mode


Make sure the DVD player is set to 16:9 screen mode.

If you still get the bars at the top & bottom, then its probably because the DVD was filmed in true cinema widescreen, (21.7:9) whereas the TV is only 16:9.

There may be other settings on the DVD player to expnad the picture out, but you will either lose the edges of the picture, or it will be stretched.
