Re: Plasma TV picture problem
Normallly, if the format button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

It appears that the Main bd is bad. Try using Component cables instead of the HDMI cables and see if there is a change. If there is a change to normal picture then try another HDMI cable. If the problem returns then replace the Main bd. There three Main bds for this basic model number. You will need the version# found on the right side of the set to order the correct bd.
I had the same problem and had the TV serviced and found that the y board was blown $350 total. The repair guy explained that the board has a hot transister underneath that slowly leaked onto the board, but says that they can not get Samsung to admit to the problem. Works fine now but only have a 90 day warrenty on the parts.
When using a hd connection on a philips tv and (I am assuming this is the case) the tv disables the format features on the tv and only lets you select widescreen and automatic, if you are using hd adjust the picture size from the cable/satellite box, look for it in the box's menu system or on the remote, it is usually labeled, aspect ratio, zoom, format or something to that nature, hope I helped you
I had the same issues and the tech came out and replaced the main board... one way to tedt if it is the PDP is in the service menu.. run the plasam ttests and verify you don't see any dots. After replacement the tech checked all voltages and all is well.
