Wide Screen Mode a thin profile blue box opens and closes....

In Wide Screen Mode a thin profile blue box opens in the center of the screen and then expands out until it reaches the outer edges of the screen. Once it reaches the outside of the screen it begins to shrink in size again until it reaches a tiny size in the center again and repeats this over and over again. Can any one tell me if they've seen this before and how to possibly get rid of it? I've looked throught the "tiny" manual and there is nothing to suggest what the purpose of this box is. At first I thought it was for a zoom setting framing the size of the picture to display but I'm truly at a loss.

PLEASE HELP

It sounds like you have a defective unit. If it was purchased in the last year there should be no cost in having Best Buy repair this for you. Simply return it to the store and they will send it out for repair. If you have exceeded this 1 year warranty they can usually still have the unit repair at a minimal cost.

Have a westinghouse lcd tv 50inch model ew50t5kw and would like to know before changing any parts or boards what causes a blue screen no sound or picture


  1. Frank: Verizon. com says try this: Change your VCR's Channel to 3 or 4. Most blue screen issues are caused by the VCR not being set to Channel 3 or 4. If changing the VCR's channel (using the channel buttons on the VCR or from the VCR remote control) did not change your TV screen, go to step 2.
  2. Make sure your TV is not in Video mode. There are three possible ways to change your TV's mode using your TV remote control: 1) Press a Mode button, toggle through the options and select TV, 2) Press a Video button to change your TV's mode from Video to TV or 3) Press Menu, locate Mode or Audio/Video setup and select TV from one of the options. If you are not sure how to change your TV's mode, see your TV's user guide for more information.
  3. Check to make sure your set-top box is plugged in and turned on.
  4. Check to see if other TVs (connected to different outlets) have a blue screen. If they do, contact the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center.

Installed comcast cable box to emerson flat screen tv. it is hdmi, 1080. now i don't have a full screen picture.


Try using the wide mode. There are multiple screens you can get such as wide, zoom, full, and wide zoom. Go through these til you get the picture you want.

2 thin vertical blue lines, near center and right side. Do i need to replace LRC buffer boards. Z50p3 50 in plasma.


By thin line I assume its one pixel in width. A single pixel wide line is an indicator of a defective panel.

Sir press the screen mode button in your remote below input select button, press the screen mode button repeatedly to select smart, 4:3, wide, zoom, or 14:9.
  • Smart- Display conventional 4:3 broadcast with an imitation wide screen effect. The 4:3 picture is stretched to fill the screen.
  • 4:3- Display conventional 4:3 broadcast non-wide screen TV in the correct proportions.
  • Wide- Display wide screen 16:9 broadcast in the correct proportions.
  • Zoom- Display cinemascopic letter box format broadcasts in the correct proportions.
  • 14:9- Display 14:9 broadcasts in the correct proportions. As a result, black border areas are visible on the screen.

Wide screen mode won't go back to "normal".


Was exactly what you said. The cable box settings were in wide mode. Couldn't figure it out at all. Funny thing was too.. on my cable box remote, the button under the #9 button is the # button.. it doesn't say zoom at all.. but it totally controls the zoom.

So thanks for that.. AND thanks for saying "under the #9 on the cable remote" instead of just saying .. the zoom button.

Thanks again!!!

When I turn on my tv all that comes on is three 6"blue lines no picture is my tv toast


Hi:
If these lines are at least 2 inches wide then the problem is the display driver boards or some call them the Buffers boards, if the lines are less then 2in in wide and are very thin lines then the PDP is bad (Screen).

How do you adjust screen size in HMDI mode screen display is centered and not wide screen


That is one big problem with the Vizio, They do not have this option. You may have better luck trying to adjust it through your cable box if you have one. They do offer an option on some of there remotes that says "wide" this will magnify the picture to full screen in most cases, it has been the only solution I have been able to find, besides the setup on the cable box. I hope this helps, Good luck.
