I have a Sanyo, I have a "pix shape" button on my remote control. It has 4 settings. It changes the sides, top/bottom. My Dad's TV is different, his is on a menu. or look in your owners manuel.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box


Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

Screen splits into 3 separate images not convergence


Make sure you re-adjust convergence in HD and non HD modes if your TV has HD

My HD only works on my video setting, but I have no sound


Ok so the sound is fine on all of the other sources,
The component is running from the cable box to the amp, and you can see it.
just take the audio Red/Whit RCA out of the cable box, and input it to Cable/TV or whatever its labled, Red White, RCA.

If you want surround, then you will have to go Coaxial((single orange RCA) or TOS out of the cable box to the Digital input on the AMP. When you use this instead of Red White RCA, your amp will automatically switch between the different types of surround depending on what the source calls for or is encoded in.

You may have to get into the amps menu and change that amps input to Digital/Coax/TOS for the surround sound.

Any more specific questions, I need the model #s.

How are you hooked up? I.E. terrestrial, satellite, ?

If the channel on HD isn't strong enough to pull the signal, sound won't play because it isn't locked. Because you have sound on non hd it is a signal issue not the tv.

Screen Size


When you are using the DVI connection on this unit it will automatically set the aspect ratio. There is no way to force it into stretching the picture as it will with other input sources. The only way to get to fullscreen would be to go into the setup menu on your cable box and set the "4:3 override" option to one that will meet your satisfaction. I'm having issues with this one skewing the picture to the left on DVI input. I'll crack it open one of these days to see if there are some adjustments that I can mess with on the inside. If there is anything further I figure out, I'll repost.

Problem w60 inch using hdtv cable box


i know this problem, happened to me with the comcast Motorola HD receiver box. The key is with the setting in the cable box. Switch on the TV. Set the channel to normal tuner channel 3 or HD input. Turn off the cable HD box. Press the Menu Button on the Cable box or the remote. You should see a Menu. Use the cursor keys to navigate The default setup is also one of the option, Right click on your cursor keys acts like the computer keyboard enter key and applies the change. The default setup is 16:9, the shacking would happen if you have set the picture type to "PAN SCAN". change it to either 16:9 or 4:3 Letter Box. The shacking should stop. Hope it helps.
