Question about Televison & Video

Have a Westinghouse LTV-32w3HD TV. Purchased reconditioned (you get what you pay for!!!) Works great on SDTV. When resolution is changed to 720p; bars on each side greatly reduce the picture. Auto adjust feature only for PC Mode.

    I have cable with a Motorola Receiver. I have/had tried the actions you indicated. Negative results. I use a good HDMI Cable and HDMI as the imput; however I am not sure what the receiver is sending (16:9 or 4:3). (I do have HD service)

    I have used the scaling button but it does not achieve the full screen that I want even by selecting fill.

What type of TV signal do you use? Satelite, Cable, Over-The-Air? Is you signal source HD?

If your signal is SD then it will not be widescreen, the bars on each side are present as it is fitting the image on your screen to the proper ratio (4:3). If you input signal is widescreen (16:9) then it would fill the screen. It's similar to when a widesreen movie is display in letterbox (black bars on top and bottom) on a standard TV (4:3).

You should be able to stretch a 4:3 input signal to fill your screen. I personally don't like this as it makes all the actors look short and wide. Circles on the screen become ovals.

You can also only take advantage of widescreen input signals when using the component (YPbPr), VGA, DVI, or HDMI inputs.

    Use the "Scaling" button on your remote to switch from scale to fill mode. It's the button beneath the input button between the Vol and Ch buttons. It has a icon of a TV with a dual arrow in it. See page 12 of your manual here: http://www.westinghousedigital.com/pdf/1...



    Or use the menu button on the remote or TV and go to the display sub-menu. Select the "Aspect Ratio" item and pick fill to stretch your picture or scale to display it with the proper ratio (and show the black bars).



    This is not a problem with your TV but a feature, it all depends on how you like to view your content.

    What HD provider do you use and what type/brand/model of receiver do you have? Have you gone through the menu of the receiver and looked for an aspect ratio setting in it?

It appears that you need to select the picture size to full or HD.

    Press the scaling button that is located between Volume and channel buttons to select the "standard or fill" screen.

You may have LCD controller board overheating problem (the pictures show the board with shield removed)
Try cooling it with small fan blowing at the vents.

Westinghouse LTV32W6HD. Turned it on and video is


If the picture goes bad after about 15~30 minutes, then more likely to be bad LCD controller bd. See sample of the failed LTV-32W3HD here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/

You can try running the TV with the back open with a small fan blowing in the back to keep it cool just to verify that it is heat related.
