I would check the set up menu of your cable,satellite receiver set top box, they usually have a format selection in the menu and it sounds like you want to set it for 4:3 ratio format, but just find that adjustment and play around with it until you get the picture to look as you want it.If you haven't allready also check your TVs menu for the same adjustments. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Top and bottom of the screen are cut off

That set has an aspect ratio of 4:3. The problem is that what you are sending to it is 16:9 So you are sending an hd signal to a non HD television. The tuner is NTSC which is not HD. Theres not much that you can do about this.

I have a 27" RCA TruFlat TV. Recently the picture

Something has definitely gone wrong. When picture fails, generally the audio will still play; but since the set is shutting down completely after a short time - it is going to more involved.

Firstly, anything can be fixed. The questions to ask are: 1) At what point do you stop spending money to repair a device that is XX years old? 2) How much would a replacement / upgrade cost?

Given that your set is an older SD (standard definition) with an old analog NTSC legacy tuner, it may be worth while to make the move to a digital HDTV. The picture quality will "blow away" any SD version of the same image / program that your old TV displayed. Unlike several years ago, the HDTV has come way down in price, too. A 32 inch, wide screen HDTV price starts at just $235 as results shown by a search in Google. In order to view HD signals, you'll need either 1) a plain UHF/VHF antenna (and local broadcasters in range), 2) HD cable TV service or, 3) HD satellite service. Cable and satellite providers offer SD service and for slightly more, HD service. Most people are not happy watching SD signals on an HD display - so you'll probably want to change the level of service if you're not using an antenna. Old DVD players only send SD signals, you might consider upgrading to a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Ray players provide SD and HD signals - depending on whether you insert an SD DVD or an HD Blu-Ray disk. The Blu-Ray players, like the HDTVs, have also dropped in price significantly.

See if you can find a place that provides free estimates. If not able to locate, find someone that will apply the cost of diagnostics (ask what the diagnostic fee is) to the total repair charge, and decide to either fix or replace.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thank you.

How can i adjustment my picture quality sharp aqu40d78un to get rip of the fuzzy look?

Your Sharp Aquos 40D78UN is a 1080P HD display, and will provide razor sharp, vibrant images if provided with an HD signal.

HD signals (those that are 720P, 1080i and 1080P) are only available from the following sources:

1) Local "off air" (antenna) HD broadcasters (providing HD content) delivered via the coaxial antenna terminals.

2) An HD source such as a stand alone Blu Ray (BD) Disk player, PlayStation 3 optical (BD) disk, HD service provided by DirecTV, Disk Network, Local CATV provider or other satellite service delievered to the TV via any of the (3) HDMI jacks or (2) Component RCA jacks (RGB). Satellite and CATV providers offer both SD and HD service. You must have HD service to watch programs in the higher quality HD format.

3) Computer signals delivered via the PC (VGA 15 pin) jack - such as movies or video in HD or Netflix HD.

It is important to note that any signal source (regardless if 720 or even 1080) that is delivered to the TV via either of the (2) "A/V" RCA jacks, will be limited to SD or 480i resolutions.

An HD picture is only possible when the source is HD, it is brought to the display over HD cables to HD capable jacks on the TV and, the display is capable of at least 720P. If any one of these variables is missing or substituted, the picture quality will be reduced significantly.

CNet has a helpful review and discussed HD signals. it is only a couple pages in length and may help you understand even better. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

RCA 52" hooked to cable, can not see their heads. Is it because of HD. Do I need an HD cable from box to tv?

You can put it in wide screen format. On my remote I have to push TV then the right button a few times (right of the OK in the center) and it puts it in widescreen mode. My tv sayes RCA HDTV MONITOR on the front. I hope this helps.

Can't get full screen

I have a Vizio. If I use the HDMI input I can only get normal and zoom w/ picture buttom on the remote but get full picture on all cable supplied HD channels but not on none HD channels. However, if I switch cable input, I have the TV set up with both inputs from the converter box, I am able to have the options of normal,panoramic,wide and zoom on all non HD channels. I don;t like the black bars top and bottom of the HD channels with this imput mode so I switch back to HDMI. Maybe your TV is simmilar.

RCA Home Theatre Wide Screen TV Model# P52731WK

This sounds to me like the parameters are off, I recomend only a service tech adjust this for you because the parameters can only be accessed by a service man, and they are critical, if done wrong the whole set can go out of wack.
