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?

    i used the format button went from 480p to 720p to 1080i to 1080p and that seemed to have done the trick for now, thank you so much!

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

Not all TV programs are broadcast in 1080. When you use zoom or stretch on a program in 720 or 480 and a 1080 program is viewed you have to go back and take off zoom and stretch to get a correct picture.

I have a very annoying problem with my driver.


This occurred when you installed new drivers? Revert to old drivers if this is the case... Also this is an old but great card, I use an FX 5200 on one PC and it still works great. I have had one FX go out on me after a Ionic Charge hit it while I was watching, but it lasted 4-5 years so I can't complain.Try different drivers and if this doesn't fix it then get a new card.

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).
