Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Picture is too tall

The vertical height is excessive. The CNN scroll bar is totally cut off and when playing a DVD the "loading" and "play" at the start is off the top of the screen with only a glow along the left top edge of the screen. Panasonic tech help led me through a sequence with the remote using a vertical line on the screen. This would move the display up or down but would not change the overall height of the picture. I have tried everything in the owners manual but no help. I have tried all aspect settings available with the remote.

After looking at the service manual, there is an adjustment for the vertical size, but it is in the service mans menu, and this is a dangerous place to be if you do not know what you are doing. I do have the two part service manual, and if you want to attempt this, you certainly can, but I highly advise against it, as I have seen peeps mess up a TV set royally this way. It should not cost too much to repair, unless the problem is not simply an adjustment and is a part going bad. Good Luck

    So do you want the two part service manual to attempt this? I highly advise against it, but if you wish to, it is after all your TV set.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized

Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

Expanded screen

If it only does it via the coax or cable fitting it may not be the set.

Does it do the same thing when playing a DVD etc?

If problem is on all inputs it is a deflection problem in the set which for whatever reason has over scanned the picture to tall---it suggests a problem in the Vertical deflection circuit of the set (top to bottom is vertical deflection).

On CNN or during football games banner is cut off

It sounds like you're watching wide screen content on a 4:3 tv, so the screen may be zoomed in so that the bars that would normally be on the top and bottom are not showing. Because the picture is zoomed in, images that would be at the top and bottom are off the screen. If you're watching from a home receiver (Uverse, DirecTv, Xfinity, etc.) you need to change the video settings to let the receiver know that your TV's aspect ratio is 4:3 (full screen) and not 16:9 (widescreen). Also, if your channel lineup has the option of watching CNN on a standard definition channel, that would also help because the shape of the image would be what your tv was designed for. If you watch 16:9 programs, you will have to choose letter box mode (bars on top and bottom because the shape of the widescreen image does not match the shape of your tv), pillar box mode (bars on either side) zoomed, or stretched. Stretched will make the shape of everything appear distorted, as it squeezes a widescreen image on the sides to make it narrow enough, so that everyone will have tall and skinny heads like an old Kung Fu movie. The sharpest picture would likely be to watch 16:9 (hi def) content in letterbox mode (bars on top and bottom) so at least you get the proper aspect ratio that the sports were recorded in, and it comes from a sharper source (HD vs SD). I would just deal with the bars, because even with a widescreen tv, there will sometimes be bars because that's how programs are sometimes recorded, for different visual impact or cinematic effect.

TALL PICTURE

Hi,

On most TV units, there would be two (2) adjustments that affects your concern:
  • vertical Linearity (VLin); and
  • Vertical Height (VHt)
However, newer designs no longer have these adjustments since they are automatically done by the circuitry. If for some reason height is incorrect in such a system, then chances are that there is a leaky/defective capacitor in the vertical section.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sansui - BOTTOM OF SCREEN CUT OFF

Your problem is not a vertical alighnment or size adjustment. No, Im sorry to say its the old vertical output IC and /or the small capacitors around the ic and in the vertical circuit. If you dont have the right tools, like a soldering iron a multimeter know how to read a schematic diagram, then you should seek out a repair person to assist you in this repair.
