Question about Projection Televisions

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.

How do i change my resolution to 720p on 55" inch older mitsubishi tv


Are you sure the TV supports 720p? Many older 55" RPTVs are 480 only. Even with Component. Most older component is only 480

How do i change from 480p to 1080p on my rca remote


You don't. The TV's resolution can't be changed. Only the signal resolution from the source can be altered.

The TV reports the resolution of the incoming signal before it is scaled. If you have a BD player you can see the effect of changing the resolution setting from 480p, to 720p, to 1080i, to 1080p 60, to 1080p 24. The last three (the 1080 resolutions) shouldn't look too different with a Blu-ray apart from movement because the native picture is 1080p 24 and the TV is simply converting it back to 1080p 24 for display.

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

The tv works with the antenna and the ski but turned it self off after about an hour when I watched my bluray player and the red light came on. After a couple of minutes I was able to turn back on but...


Go into the setup of your Bluray player and in Video setup reduce the resolution to 720p from the default setting of 1080p.
Some Bluray players have a button on the remote labeled HDMI. Every time you press this button the output resolution will change from 480p / 576p / 720p /1080i /1080p. Try one of the lower resolution that way it will strain your TV's graphic processor a little less.

There is no picture and it shuts down and then tries to restart


Your set is not receiving a valid signal for the resolution of the set and shuts down as a self-protective measure
so you have to make sure the source is sending what the set needs and then it will show a picture at the
acceptable resolution.

Do you know the range of resolutions allowed with your set?


They are:
Broadcast Format Displayed: 720p (HDTV) · 480p (EDTV) · 480i (SDTV) Broadcast Format Supported: 720p (HDTV) Digital TV Standard: HDTV - HDTV receiver is integrated. Built-in Tuner: NTSC Aspect Ratio: 16:9 · 14:9

I have the NS-PDP42 42" PLASMA 720-P and I would like to know how to change the screen resolution for hdmi devices. In the user guide it says to change it to 1280 x 720p but it does not tell how to...


There's no way to tell the HDMI input whether it should take 720p or 1080i input on this set. The best thing to do is experiment. Set your Comcast box to 720p and watch it that way for a while, then set it to 1080i and watch it for a while. The PDP42 has to do a little picture manipulation in either mode, but I think you'll find that the 720p mode will work best for you. I have this set with Verizon FiOS and I have the FiOS output set to 720p. Looks great, no complaints.
