Question about Toshiba 50H13 50" Rear Projection Television
I have a Toshiba 50H13 HDTV manufactured Jan 04 with the following issues...1)picture is too for the screen i.e., tops of heads are cut off, bottom of picture is cut off 2)font size is too large 3)volume is still too low at it's max output Please help. Thanks!
If the television is connected to a cable box such as Time Warner's HD box, the picture mode can be changed by pressing the '#' on the cable box's remote keypad (where the channel numbers are). This cycles the picture between zoom, normal, and stretch which could be cause of your problem.

Here in Alberta pressing the * on the satelite remote works and so does the page up for HD and page down for SD simply while you are watching any show. I finally have a picture inside the frame not game scores outside. Thanks for the tips

I know this seems like the obvious answer but have you tried adjusting the display size? If you're in a wide-screen mode with certain inputs it can chop the top and bottom off the screen. In respect to the volume,if your cable box has it's own volume setting it may be set too low. For instance, I have a Pioneer cable box from Time Warner and it has a separate volume control (adjustable using the cable box remote). I usually keep it all the way up and use the TVs volume control to adjust the *actual* volume. My wife will sometimes use the wrong remote to adjust the volume (volume is volume) and then no matter how much I turn up the volume on the TV it will only go as high as the cable box is set to. At any rate the volume issue could be upstream from the TV. To test it, take all those components out of the loop and plug the TV cable into the TV and see if you have the same problem. Another, perhaps easier test is to see if issue persists when playing a DVD. If the volume is still low regardless of the input source (DVD, VHS, cable, etc) then you might have a bigger problem. Hope that helps some.

On DISH receivers, use the DISH remote to change the screen size. By hitting the # key, you can change the screen size from "gray bar", full, normal and two levels of zoom. For the Vizio XVT472SV, "normal" was the correct setting to included all the banners and sidebars while taking advantage of the dispaly.

I have the same problem with people's heads being cut off and sports scores etc.... and THANK you, FINALLY from this board, the fix was here. I took my regular cable remote (that I never use anymore) and hit the # button which I NEVER knew zoomed in/out and finally have my tv working like it should. THANK YOU

There are 2 large IC's in your set and one of them has burned out. These are called convergence output IC's and are usually the STK392-010's. A good idea would be to go ahead and replace both with the newer, upgraded STK392-150 IC's. A good tech can change those IC's in about an hour and a half, and when I do a housecall for a set like that I charge $150, but shops in your area will vary so be sure to ask around.

First thing to look at would be the source, make sure that this source whatever it may be is set to display a 16X9 format. Your set may simply be showing what it see's and it may be seeing the 4X5 format and giving you a problem
