Our Panasonic model PTH 3778R has elongated its vertical size about 2 inches outside the screen limit. Is there a way of adjusting the vertical size?

    To say the problem is generic is not answering my query.

  • mgoldstone May 09, 2008

    Actually it seems stretched more at the bottom, and I don't see any other noteworthy symtoms.

  • mgoldstone May 10, 2008

    I'm still awaiting a reply, but I presume your thought is that a major home or service center visit is necessary to test out the vertical circuit, and that you don't think I as a mildly informed layman can fix it?

    Hi, I'm awaiting Abrsvcs' response - he planned to look up the part number and circuit designation, and I had asked him whether I as a mildly informed layman should avoid tackling this.

Usually this means that a cap in the vertical circuit is starting to fail. Are there any other symptoms at all? Does the height seem stretched more at the top?

    Thanks for the update. I'll look up the specific model tonite and post more details. The problem is with a 100ufd cap in the circuit having a smaller value around 5ufd or so. I'll look up the part number and circuit designation for you. If you need to have this repaired by a service shop, the parts should not cost more than about $5-$10. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost.

    Stay tuned.

    Update: My Panasonic service info site has been down. It should be available later today. Sorry about the delay.

    Stay tuned...

Why I have a thin line across the screen in my TV model Panasonic TC 21. After replacing the vertical IC the horizontal line across the screen reduced to few inches and not as it was earlier. vertica


First, You should to replace by original part, then you should check the voltages on power supply, and check the voltage for vertical IC based on datasheet, also check the voltages on vertical section including yoke and last you should check the ESR capacitors on vertical section.

Picture size


I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but:
1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio.
2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays.
NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options.
4:3 Programming
[Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen.
[Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off.
[Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal.
16:9 Programming
[Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is.
[Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation.
[Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation

27 inch Zenith TV Vertical too big


If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention

Panasonic viera doesn't display computer correctly


I have had what is fundamentally the same problem. I have a desktop PC that I am plugging in to my Panasonic Viera TX-32LZD80. I am using DVI connection plugged in to HDMI port.

The solution is fairly simple; use the Menu button on the TV remote to get to the Main Menu for the TV and then select Setup which should be the fourth of four options. This will get you to the Setup Menu for the TV for the current channel. Look for the Picture Overscan option, it will very probably be set to On if you have the problem of %5 or so of display being missing on all sides.

Switch Picture Overscan to Off.

This immediately should solve your problem. A note of warning on this is that I suspected this was the problem but when I first looked at the Setup Menu I could not find the Picture Overscan option.

If you are unable to find the Picture Overscan option then trying fiddling with the Aspect settings. You will probably find it set to Auto. Switch it to 16:9 and you should find the Picture Overscan option will be available from the Setup Menu.

Hope it works for you.

Dark picture


**WORKS**

In my case, the adjustment was available from outside the TV. Sortof. On the rear of the TVabout 2 inches to the right of the coax in, there are two vertical slits on a little protrusion. Inside the slits are the two adjustment screws. The lower screw adjusts brightness, the upper screw adjusts focus.

1 inch lines on top and bottom of screen


Is the picture overall too small by 1 in. on top and bottom? Or is it cut off by the lines?

If it's too small, look for an adjustment labeled Vertical Height. This may only be accessible internally, it's normally a service adjustment, not a user adjustment.

Your problem is a vertical deflection issue, either an adjustment or the vertical circuit requires repair by a technician. In the latter case, electrolytic capacitors are a likely cause.
