Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Model 51f59a hd widescreen aspect settings dont take and picture too big

The remote is misplaced, yet even when I tried to fix this problem with the remote, I couldnt. I try selecting ASPECT from the menu, then attempt to set a different size other than 16:9 or 16:9 zoom. it seems to only allow these settings whether "auto select " is checked or not. While in another menu I try to reset the factory settings and this doesnt work either.

Now the picture is so bad you cant hardly view it because peoples heads are chopped off or the bottom of the screen is missing. How can I reset the picture size or get it to switch to a different aspect?

I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.

Look to see if set on the remote has a ZOOM or aspect button--model indicated here should not have that feature but others do, also look for that on the remote if a cable or sat box is being used.

Picture on screen is too big head of people are cut off it does not show complete picture


Use your cable or satellite tv remote to adjust the aspect ratio. If you have cable there is a button on the remote called hd zoom and it has this symbol: #. On the satellite tv remotes it usually says format or aspect. You might even have to go into the cable box/satellite tv receiver menus to adjust the aspect ratio/picture format. Once you have done so you can fine tune the picture even further with the television remote's wide/format/aspect/zoom button. Also check and make sure your television is on the right input and that your cable box/satellite tv receiver is set at the right resolution for the television 1080p/1080i/720p.

Change the aspect ratio


you can set the aspect on either remote. the best thing to do is set the proper aspect on the tv remote for regular (sd) channels, and then again for hd channels. the tv should remember these aspect settings and revert to them when you switch back and forth from sd to hd. if you have satelite, there is usually another aspect on there you can change depending on the program, but i usually recommend leaving it alone. if you are on an hd channel with side bars, switch to the sd version instead of changing aspect so you dont have to keep flipping it back and forth.

There should be a format button on your remote to change between widescreen & fullscreen as well as the zooms. May say format or aspect. If not on remote look through your menus. Make sure which ever u select u do not choose a zoom. This will cut of top & bottom of picture

PICTURE SIZE


Menu- Setup- V. Position + (from either the front panel or remote) until more of the lower picture is visible. If the picture size is entirely too big, you'll need to change your aspect style. This model will only allow you to change the aspect style if it is not in 1080i mode. However, most newer HD converter boxes allow this feature. I would check the converter manual.

Cant see all of screen


You should have a button or setting on the remote that says "picture size" or "aspect". One of those is set too "zoom" mode which will cut off the bottom and top of the frames. You want it to be in 16:9,Normal or Full mode (or whatever your set call it) to get the correct aspect. Or if you have a HD satellite rcvr. you might of placed it in the zoom mode as well.

Widescreen thinks it's a big screen


Information as to the type of signal input is needed to resolve this problem. Does it appear in zoom mode when playing a dvd, or just in catv mode? Some times an HD cable box must be reset to a particular aspect ratio. This can be done by reading the owners manual of the cable box manufacturer. Scrivitron
