Question about Samsung HP-S5053 Television

Zoom Function and Verizon Fios TV

I have Verizon Fios TV. Until about 2 weeks ago, I was able to zoom or stretch my non-HD channels so they filled the screen. Now when I'm on the non-HD channels I have bars on the sides of the pictures and my zoom options on my TV menu are grayed out and will not let me zoom on those channles. Help!?!

On the verizon FIOS tv box, turn the FIOS STB on, and turn on the tv, tap the following buttons on the Verizon FIOS STB )in this order) 1-Power, then Select, then Menu. This will bring up the FIOS STB HD options. Arrow down to 4:3 Bypass and set the bypass option to 480P. Hit power 2 times, once to turn off, second time to turn STB back on. This should on standard channels give you the zoom feature back. This worked on my Samsunf 5053 TV model.

I have a 47 inch Philips HD TV. I switched to FioS and for some reason, some channels come in very choppy or pixelated. It is not consistent but by analog TNT is fine but my HD TNT is pixelated. But my...


Long story short, it is not your fault. Your provider will blame you, TNT, will blame your provider, and both are wrong.

The most likely cause is HD TNT is not a "real" HD channel. It is probably an SD recording TNT is upscaling from SD to HD. This can occasional create a dirty HD signal being broadcasted. Some TVs have trouble decoding this signal and end up with pixelated images because the image has been pre-stretched to fix the format.

Temporary solution would be to change the resolution of you TV for just the TNT channel. Some TV will let you select a preferred mode for a channel. If you can do this, set it to 720p instead of 1080p or try 1080i for TNT to see if this improves the image.

Also make sure that only one tuner is altering the images you are receiving if you have a FIOS box. If it is processing the image image in any way (color correct, resolution, etc.) turn those features off and let the TV do it.

LG 50" the pitcher is off the screen each side by


Ok, first make sure you or someone in family didn't hit the "HD Zoom" on your cable remote or whatever kind of remote you have. On ours - Cable- if you hit it once it is in "Normal" picture which on ours has black around edges on a non Hd channel. Then if you hit it again it Zooms once makes pix very large and if you hit button a third time brings it into a wide screen Zoom that fills the Tv screen. If we are viewing HD channels I put it on Normal which will fill the screen and give you the best HD pix. If we are viewing a NON HD channel, then normal will have black on sides, so I hit the Zoom a couple times to fill in the screen. My brother in law had this problem and couldn't figure out why his Sports channel Scores were always half cut off the screen! it was zoomed in too much for that channel. His sports channel was in HD so needed to be on normal instead of zoomed in.
if it is not the Cable remote then this is a second possible cause:

The other thing that happened to me was - we hardly ever use our original TV remote that came with the TV. but one day our picture looked weird and the cable remote didn't adjust it. One of us had hit the "P SIZE" button on the TV remote. this changes your pix from - 4:3 ratio to 16:9 ratio and vice versa. I put clicked that button and on the TV it shows whether it is at 4:3 or 16:9. For newer wide screen TVs you want that set at 16:9 ratio.

All cable company remotes probably are a bit different so check with your company ... to find out where the zoom control is on their remote.

My sanyo hdtv plasma won't show the whole picture but it worked fine yesterday


Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
 
 
There are a few buttons to adjust the picture size on different make TVs and even on the Cable/Satellite remotes .
1.Format
2.Aspect
3.Size
4.Zoom
5.Wide
6.#
First look on the TV remote, set it to Full ,Fill or Just or 16 x 9 (whichever your model uses) Samsung uses the P size button ,
Then on the cable/dish Box remote stretch (not zoom) is usually best.
On the box remote set the output resolution to 1080i only
And use 16x9 when if offers a choice.
Cable remotes use the # key as a zoom/size button.
Due to the fact there are 16 size/Formats available (3 or 4 being transmitted now). you may have to hit the zoom/stretch button on some HD channels.
But with these settings the picture will mostly stay full and help you avoid image burn from the edges being not on the edge.
Stretch will fill the screen and allow you to read the bottom.
Make sure you are on the correct input, sometimes TVs are connected on multiple inputs
(not necessary, only the HD input is needed)
 
If I have helped you with your issue
If you have more questions you can still respond
I will reply asap
Thanks

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
