Disconnect it from any inputs and then try to enter the menu. Sometimes peripherals like dvd players will activate built in settings for compatability. If it persists, try working with the menu anyways, it could be a malconfiguration that is fixable through correcting the picture options, color, and sharpness. 

Though I have seen a similar problem occur on a smaller tv after a lightning surge hit it. The picture was fine but the menu, channel number etc, went off screen half way. If this is the case the tv is probably ok but the controller card is scrap and needs to be replaced. I'd contact the manufacturer if it needs to be replaced they maybe able to supply you with one.

How do I remove the boarders


Hello jcsmith794,

Welcome, and thankk you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: The "boarders" you see are due to the video being displayed being at a smaller vdeio display setting than the TV can handle.
Example: If your video is 640x480 because it is coming from a Wii or DVD Player device, and your TV can handle a display of 1280×720; then you will see boarders around the left and right edges.

Solution: Search the display menu of your TV and see if it has "Automatic", "Panoramic", "Wide", "Zoom", or "Fit to Screen" options. This will eliminate the side boarders, but may also cut some of the image off of the top and bottom of the display as well.

Have a great day!

The televion has started showing a blue and yellow douwble vision on the bottom of the screen?


Have you tried going to the service menu?
Do this by holding "MENU" on the TV set while it is on, then pressing "Menu" on the remote. You may have to do this a couple times for the menu to appear.

There should be a option on the appearing screen for Convergence, which has more options the the standard menu. To work this under the "9" setting for convergence, each of the + on the screen is the corresponding button the the TV remote (3 if top right, 5 is center). Use your volume or arrow keys then to move the selected + in the desired direction.

Use the [TV/Video] button to switch which color you are aligning, trying to align Red Green and Blue so they overlap, making white.

Good luck!

Can't get rid of black box


You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

My Toshiba 50 inch projection screen TV isnt displaying


If you are capable of some basic troubleshooting you can determine what's wrong but you won't likely be able to fix it yourself. If you remove the TV's back panel, you can locate three plug connectors for the convergence correction yokes. You pull the red, blue, and green connectors and then plug the TV back in and hit the power button. If the TV comes on, its a failure of the convergence output ICs and will cost $350-450 if you call in a service company.

Color problem


Did you try alignment of color convergence in setting up. Try this
1 Press MENU
2 Select SET UP
3 Select CONVERGENCE
4 Select screen mode ZOOM this accesses the center convergence adjustment.Press set/enter
5 Use arrow keys to aline the red cross to the white cross.Press set/enter
6 Use arrow keys to alingn the blue line in the same manner. Once adjustment is complete press MENU to turn the menu off.
I hope this helps if you cant move the red or blue lines you face the same problem I face. I still havent gotton any solutions to my post about being unable to adjust the red line.You could also call Pioneer's help line 800-421-1404.
