Question about Philips DVP5982

1 Answer

Picture stretches Ive had my player for about a year now, works great but recently the picture on the sides are stretched out while playing discs. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesnt. Im using an HDMI cable from the player to my sharp aquos. Its not my tv, thats fine when i play regular cable tv. Its not the cable either, sometimes when i set it to 480p the stretchy sides go away. Im using 1080p upconversion and you can see the problem. Is there a solution to my dilemma?

Using the remote, you should see a format button . You can go through the options for the best looking picture using this. or you can go to the settings menu for the TV and change the format to stretch or not.


Good Luck and Thank you for using FixYA

RECORD PLAYER PROBLEMS


Belt is to small or tight--exact belt type on capstan is required--if the old belt works at all try putting it back. Not many DVD players use belts much anymore.

Recently we replaced the belt, because the other one was stretched out, and now all of my records sound like the Chipmunks.


Check whether the newly repalced belt is too tight. If it is so, the fault you report here can occur.

Hello shell
I do not believe your problem is with the DVD player. It most likely is with your TV. What happens alot is the picture on a TV is set to a different aspect ratio(ie:4:3,16:9). and sometimes it stretches or zooms the picture, allowing part to be cut off the edge of the screen. This aspect ratio problem can have two causes now that I think of it. The TV or the DVD player. To determine and fix, follow these steps.
PART 1-determining problem-
1 Watch regular TV for awhile and get some infomercials(yes, you have to watch Billy Mayes) on the bottom and edges of the screen, are there words and 800 numbers cut off, if so, your problem is with the TV and skip now to part 2(not step 2)
2 If you can see the whole number and everything , determine if your TV auto adjusts or not. Switch to your DVD player and see if the screens seems to move(shrink or enlarge). If it does shrink or enlarge, your problem is with the DVD player and you can now proceed to part 2.



PART 2-solving problem-
1 By now, you have determined whether the problem is with your tv or dvd player. From this point on "it, it's will refer to whichever has the problem
2 Go into it's menu
3 search for "picture" "video" or "setup"
4 Search for "aspect ratio" or anything containing "4:3" "16:9" or the words "stretch" "zoom" or "widescreen"
5 Set to 4:3 (sometimes 4:3 has multiple options such as stretch, zoom, and normal, if so, select normal)
6 ***OPTIONAL*** If you want widescreen, select 16:9(again if multiple choices, choose normal)
7 Insert or select a DVD and test your subtitles


If this does not work, please post a comment and I will help you further.

Staarting to not get past certain discs mennu screens.....


We have had out Toshiba P25-S509 for a very long time. It's a great laptop and watching DVDs with a wide screen was great; That is, until the CD/DVD player was no longer recognized by the computer. We took it in (still under warranty) to have it fixed, only to not work again after a couple of months.

Now YEARS have gone by and I have bought another Toshiba (M305D-S4831) which is great unless you try to reboot and it doesn't fully start up. That's for another review, not this one... So, back to the P25-S509 and YEARS later. We just received two 1GB memory cards, which are being used to replace the "stock" two 256 MB memory cards. Well, the computer is MUCH FASTER and THE DVD PLAYER FINALLY WORKS!!! Woo-Hoo! $98.00 investment in memory cards saved up from ditching the older Toshiba.

Hope this review helps someone out there that might have had the same problem.

Squished Picture


Go to the picture settings with no disc in unit. Deselect 16x9/wide/stretch mode (depending on your player, it will be one of these).
