Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi, my sony is giving me a oversized picture on the satellite channel and the video game systems. I lose about 3" on the top and bottom of the pictures. I tried using the normal and zoom functions in the menu. I tried plugging into other inputs on the tv. I tried a power reset also. I can't read the scores on games or sometime see the full name of a tv show when it uses the full screen, same on the video games. Some tv channels look very grainy like they are zoomed in way to far. I just want to see if there is a fix for this or just a maintence issue. Thanks

Have you tried changing the HD resolution settings on the TV? If that doesn't work, then it just might be a maintenance issue.

Hi my ps3 80g system wont read games anymore can u help also if i restore ps3 completely will i lose trophies i dont want to lose them because ive got about 2000


Don't restore anything.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

Make sure you try two different sources to the tv, such as a cable box, dvd player and/or gaming system. If you have issues with all sources then it is for sure the tv and there should be a format option. However if it is only one source that the issue is with the issue is of course the source.

My Zenith C32V28 television does not display the top and bottom of the picture. I phoned Zenith tech support who told me that it was the satellite signal. I called the satellite provider who advised me it...


This is applicable to Bell Television Services (Canada)
I solved the problem myself after two calls to both Zenith and Bell Television satellite service. On the bottom left of the Bell remote control there is a * (STAR BUTTON). Press this * button and within two seconds you must press the channel change button up or down. This will do two things. One; it changes the channel; and also changes the ratio of the satellite signal. There are three satellite signal ratio settings. Try this when you are tuned to a TV channel such as BNN (Canada) (Business News) or The American channel which has a stock ticker usually displayed along the bottom of the TV screen. Select the ratio (setting) that allows the stock ticker to be displayed......hope this helps.........Jim McP

Turn on goes blue then turns off


The most common reason for a TV to display a blue screen with no picture is because the source device has not been set to the proper mode.

If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, ensure that it is turned on and set to an active station. If the set-top box is connected to the television using a coaxial cable, then the television should be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If you have are using a VCR that is turned on, but not playing a tape and not tuned to a receivable channel, then a blue screen will be displayed on the TV. To resolve this, turn off the VCR or tune it to a receivable channel. If a cable or satellite set-top box is connected to the VCR using a coaxial cable, then the VCR should normally be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If the blue screen is not because of a connected VCR or set-top box, the TV may require service.

Hi, Can you tell me how to do a reset on my playstation 3 back to the default, or factory setting?


yea. this is easy. first on the XMB go under "settings", "system settings", then towards the bottom it will say "restore default settings".

it will tell you everything it will restore then walk you through the rest of the process.

this will not delete any videos, music, pictures, save data utility, game data utility or friends/trophies.
