Hi,

I suggest try to check the Properties of the Video Card Driver and Check for the Aspect Ratio and adjust it to 100% sometimes its not named Aspect Ratio but you can see it under video or display options that's how you can fix your display problem.

HDMI from computer to TV gets sound but no picture??


Check with an other HDMI cable. Sounds like a cable fault. This type of fault is common to HDMI connections.

the tv more than likely the most sensible thing to do would be to check its not your cable by trying someleses that you know works. its sometimes the tv resolution or the playstation because some tv's do that, my laptop would sink and a say out of range but try someleses cable or different tv screen resolutions on picture settings

Hi, I have brought an ONKYO TX-SR508 receiver and seem to be having problem getting a true picture. I am connecting it to my projector. When I connect the blue ray through the receiver, the picture keeps...


The reason you are not getting a good picture is because of the HDMI interlink cable. Make sure that the HDMI cables you have bought are at least version 1.3a. May be one of the cables is v1.3a that is why you are getting OK picture when you connect the projector directly ( it might be an expensive cable ) . If you do not get v1.3 you may also buy v1.4 which is 3D ready.
The poor band width of the cable must be giving you a bad picture.
Now if both your cables are OK and you are still getting a bad picture you have faulty HDMI pass through circuit on your TX-SR508.

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen


Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

How to fix TV


I have a large black square obscuring the picture. You can see the picture in 1 inch border around the black square. If I reset the input switch, the black square disappears for about one second (the picture is momentarily perfect) and the black square appears again. It is not the cable box because I wired the cable directly into the tv. The same thing happens when I try to play a DVD. Any insights????

If you use the connections for DVD you must use all of them.If you are using the standard yellow,white,and red connectors connect them to the connections listed as video and not the DVD titled connectors. But my advise is get an up converting DVD player and use a HDMI cable to get the best picture with out having to brake the bank buying a Blue Ray. I once connected a DVD player to my TV in the same fashion before finding out it only gives you a purplish black and white picture. Up converting DVD players can be bought around 30 dollars and up. A 6 ft HDMI cable will cost around 15 dollars. This way you will be getting the full effect and great picture your TV can produce.

Black screen keeps popping up


If a black box appears on the screen, and a small amount of the picture is visible around the border, it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. Go back into the menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
