Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Samsung LNT-4042HX-XAA where the far left side of the screen is scrambled when viewed in 16:9 and is visible in other ratios. The main board was replaced not too long ago for a hefty price. I don't want to spend too much more to fix if possible, I will just purchase another TV. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Can you please upload an image to imageshack.us so that I can see for myself what it looks like? That sounds like t-con or LCD panel issue to me.

Change the aspect ratio.this can usually be done via the remote or through the tv menu.normal view for most wide screens is wide 16:9 but if you have zoom or crop black bars then you may lose parts of playback.

Why did my picture become big so I can not see the sideline information


Press the RATIO button repeatedly to select the desired picture format. You can also adjust Aspect Ratio in the OPTION menu.
  1. Set By Program. Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source’s image. (4:3 → 4:3, 16:9 → 16:9)
  2. 4:3. Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio, with gray bars appearing at both the left and right sides.
  3. 16:9. Choose 16:9 when you want to adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
  4. Horizon. Choose Horizon when you want to adjust the picture in a non-linear proportion, that is, more enlarged at both sides, to create a panorama view.
  5. Zoom 1. Choose Zoom 1 when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  6. Zoom 2. Choose Zoom 2 when you want the picture to be altered, both horizontally extended and vertically cropped. The picture taking a halfway trade off between alteration and screen coverage.
  7. Cinema Zoom. Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. Note: When enlarging or reducing the picture, the image may become distorted. You can adjust the enlarge proportion of Cinema Zoom using D / E button. The adjustment range is 1~16.

Our TV has only 2/3rds visible. The 1/3rd is black and is not using full screen view. The aspect ratio is set at 16:9. this is also showing up on the DVD mode. No matter what you select for aspect ratio it...


Y Main board has failed.

Y Main controls vertical lines in the picture. Plasma TVs have x2 of these Boards. One for left and one for right. It sound like one of these has failed. Loose connections may also result in the symptom you reported

Monitor


Monitor sizes are measured on the diagonal from corner to corner.

A 17" LCD may have a screen width of 12 inches measured from side to side.

If you are measuring a old style CRT monitor (Cathode Ray tube) the visible screen area will be about an inch less as there is about 1/2 inch of plastic frame holding the CRT in the chassis. The manufacturer can advertise the actual size of the screen regardless of how much is actually visible to display information.

If you are talking about software not utilizing all the available screen area to display the image, that is an issue with the people writing the software code not keeping up with the changes in hardware.

In the past year or two, most displays have switched to the 16:9 and 16:10 wide aspect ratios while most web content is still written for the 4:3 old style aspect ratio. Eventually, software developers will catch up with cusrrent hardware.

New Samsung 1080p TV not displaying Full 1080 from PS3 Blu Ray movies


Hi hsaucier,

Although you have a wide-screen television, it is possible the video you are viewing was recorded in an even wider format. The bars should be smaller than if you were viewing the same DVD on a TV with a 4:3 aspect ratio, but will likely not disappear unless you view the DVD at a zoom setting. Many movies are shown in theaters at a wider ratio than 16:9, and the Blu-Ray disc has probably retained the entire picture rather than cropping it to fit your screen.

I recommend trying different viewing options that zoom in slightly. Be aware that this may cut off part of the picture from the left and right sides, but depending on your personal preference, you may not notice anything missing.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


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.
