Many times HD channels will come in more clear, but with a smaller picture or widescreen view. There should be a button on your remote called 'wide' or 'zoom' and it will let you adjust the size on the fly. If you adjust the view while watching an HD channel, and you switch to a standard channel, you will have to change the ratio back.

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.

DOES NOT FILL SCREEN HORIZONTALLY


You can change how your tv displays in the video setting menu under display. You will have a choice between 4:3, 16:9, 16:10, cinema or automatic. I think to fill your screen the best you should choose 16:10 but this is not going to guarantee that all channels will fill the screen. It still has to do with how it is being broadcast to you.

How to get full picture on my tv?


First, ensure your tv is using the highest resolution possible (Usually 1080 for flat screens) by using an HDMI cable from the receiver to the television, and that you are on the correct input. Second, ensure your tv is not sizing the video by using the 'picture size' or 'aspect' or 'ratio' key on the remote that came with your tv (Not your DISH remote). Third, tune your DISH receiver (with your DISH remote) to an HD channel (for VIP model receivers, when you tune the channel to an HD channel, an opaque white 'HD' appears insude the blue box at the top of the screen). Fourth, hit the star key on the remote, while watching the screen. On the right hand side, near the top, it will cycle as you hit repeatedly the star key, the style of screen widening. Hit the key as often as you need to make the screen appear the way you want it to. The receiver will remember your setting for all HD channels. When finished with the HD channel, tune your receiver (with your DISH remote) to a SD channel (any channel in the guide that does not have the HD icon). Repeat the fourth step.

For Hopper/Joey family receivers, hit menu, settings, screen size. Follow the instructions to resize your screen to match your preference. When finished, repeat step four above on each an HD and a SD channel.

Ticker along bottom of screen for news channels and sports channels is being cutoff along the bottom. That is, the ticker moves right to left and I can read it but the bottom 10-15% of the letters is...


Hi,

I might need a little more detail to solve this problem - I suspect the problem is an incorrect setting on your cable/satellite receiver (assuming you are using one), but let's start with the TV.

Firstly, switch the TV on and select a channel where you can see the ticker. Then press the "FORMAT" button (above the red REC/CONNECT button) on your Mitsubishi remote control. This will change the screen aspect ratio and the current setting will be displayed on screen. Each time you press the FORMAT button the screen size should change.

The screen aspect ratio settings for your TV are STANDARD, EXPAND, ZOOM, STRETCHED and NARROW. Press the FORMAT button repeatedly until "STANDARD" is displayed on the screen. If the ticker is still cut off, you need to change the aspect ratio setting on your cable/satellite receiver.

Please note: If the TV will only allow you to select STANDARD, this is not a fault. It simply means that the aspect ratio cannot be changed on the TV because it's displaying a picture from an external source, i.e. a cable/satellite receiver.

You should then look for a button on the front of your cable/satellite receiver or the cable/satellite remote control marked "FORMAT" or "ZOOM". When you have located this button, try pressing it repeatedly until the ticker is both fully on the TV screen and the picture covers the entire screen.

If you don't have a FORMAT or ZOOM button for your cable/satellite receiver or you are unable to set the picture size correctly, leave the TV set to STANDARD and then reply to me with the brand and model number of your cable/satellite receiver. I will then be able to assist you with finding the correct picture settings and give instructions on how to set these correctly.

I hope this helps - please post back here if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I've got the Panasonic TCP50G25 series tv and I think it's great. The only thing that I can't seem to figure out and really wish I could is when I'm watching an HD channel I want to know how to get it so...


THE ONLY WAY TO CHANGE THAT IS TO CHANGE THE ASPECT RATIO OF THE TV AND/OR THE HD BOX. IT WILL BE LABELED "FORMAT" "ASPECT" "WIDE" "SIZE" ONE OF THOSE AND CHANGE UNTIL YOU GET THE DESIRED SIZE.

Signs that the bulb in a dlp is going out


A DLP Lamp will fail in two ways. 1.The glass tube housing the filament will shatter and the TV will not turn on. 2. The lamp has many hours of use on it and will gradually grow dimmer. At no time will the lamp cause any picture defect. Check your Cable or Sat box for the correct aspect ratio as well as the TV aspect ratio. Chances are the aspect ratio in either system is set incorrectly. If the gray borders are uniform then the aspect ratio is not set properly. If this occurs on certain channels but not others then the particular channel is broadcasting in the 4:3 aspect ratio and there is nothing wrong with your set.

Picture size/aspect ratio in HDTV and upconverting DVD


In the digital world, you can't have a 4:3 aspect ratio DVD title (720x480) on a 720p (1280 x 720) / 1080p (1920x1080) display without some kind of centering or stretching to some extent. (square vs rectangle) Now, on a 16:9 aspect ratio title (wide screen format) you should have any scaling issues regardless of the pixel resolution. Despite what the sales person told you, trans-coding ("upconverting") lower resolution titles to a higher resolution does not increase the quality of the image. Any attempt to do so would be only to try to reduce block noise and any kind pixelation at higher resolutions. (blurring square pixel blocks)

In the analog world, the quality of the image is based on the encoder and signal depth. If your TV excepts HD analog, you might be able to have your cake and eat it too. That would force your display to convert an analog signal into a digital resolution, letting the TV hardware do all the trans-coding. Manufactures are completely phasing out analog signal receiving, but might have the RGB RCA connectors for backwards compatibility. Eventually, it will not be supported and you will be forced to buy higher resolution content.

Someone was messing around with our settings yesterday and now the picture is not full screen. How can we get the picture to fill the screen?


i was going crazy then i finally found a clue on google: hit the setting button on your digital cable remote, go into 'display', change aspect ratio to 16:9, screen size to 'stretch', and output to 1080 or 720 depending on what you have. Were HD channels full screen? If they were they were NOT set properly as above anyway and non-hd channels were black on both side with some having black all the way around on some channels, correct? Hope it helps! I have time warner digital cable and an 52 LG 70 with HDMI...no settings on your tv will fix this if you are in a similar situation b/c its the settting in the digital cable box that need to be re-adjusted.
