Do you mean the top of the picture is cutt off? if so then go into tv menu and set screen size to 16:9 not auto. if that doesnt work then try settings on ps3 hopefully that works

    right,sounds like you have the zoom facility on. i have it on mine but dont know how to change it on yours. my advice would be to go through tv menu and sub menus to see if there is one for screen size. if not go into ps3 menu and set resolution to 720p as this res is much better detail than 1080i, because the p=progressive and i= interpolated. progressive is always best

Repaired the convergence and now the image quality is good but the TV seems to be over projecting the screen. The top, bottom and sides of the image are cut off slightly. is there a way to adjust?


Hey! its me again. I think what your experiencing is called overscan. This website might help but if not just google how to fix overscan on a projection tv.

Yes, if you have the original remote and get into the adjustment menu which is hidden you can adjust width, height, and centering if you want.

Peoples heads are cut off on reg tv not in hd


Since your tv is cutting the heads off durring regular or analog signal but not high deffinition sounds to me like you have to set the aspect ratio different or such as going to your picture format from the main screen. Play with the settings from zoom, full screen, no overscan, cinerama and see if this helps.

Projection off the screen?


Try pressing the "Aspect/Prog -" button on the remote - it should be just underneath the number 9 key - try pressing once, see if it fits better, try pressing again to see if it improves until you get a better match

Overscan is a staple in all CRT triple gun RPTV tech. It has to be taken in, if you want to see all of the picture possible in this medium. On ceiling mount front projection they have equipped them with all they need, they didn't need to do overscan, but with RPTVs this was not possible at the given price points. Overscan was necessary, to hide all the flaws out there at the edges, and they could not afford to pay their factory calibration techs to do it right, at the price points of the RPTV marketplace.

Unfortunately, when you take in that overscan, the picture gets hosed beyond belief, and then needs to be completely redone. It takes several hours and has quite a learning curve, a different one for each brand.

It is always available in my calibrations on all brands, but as an extra, at extra fees, to cover the extra time and experience/expertise required.

Display to big with PS3


All CRT RPTVs have overscan, and some sources bring this out more than others.

It can always be cured to at least be able to see the needed parts of the pic, but hoses your picture beyond belief, and correcting that takes time, experience, patience and expertise.

I do overscan reduction on all CRT RPTVs as part of what my calibrations offer, but charge extra to do so.

Overscan Problem


Switch to that input, and run the Auto Convergence for that input (Setup menu on the TV, Convergence). Convergence settings save for that particular input.
