Question about Mitsubishi WD-52631 52" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Can't view entire screen

I have an issue where the picture on my TV is very limited. Whether something is in HD or regular TV, the left and right edges along with the top and bottom edges are cut off. So, the picture fills te entire screen but I'm unable to view subtitles, people's heads are cut off and anything to the extreme left or right are cut off as well. I've already try pressing the format button on the remote and the TV is connected to a Scientific Atlanta 8300 DVR/HD reciever via the HDMI cable.

Make sure that you tv is set to the "standard" format and then try changing the aspect ratio on the cable box.

SHARP AQUOS 46INCH CANT GET A FULL PICTURE ONLY IF I USE ZOOM WILL THE SCREENBE FULL


Hi Anthony,

You're describing what is called letterbox and pillerbox. Letterboxing is when there are two horizontal bars - one at the top and one at the bottom of the screen with a wide picture between. Pillerbox is when there are two vertical bars - one on the left edge and one on the right edge of the screen with a tall picture between.

The settings on your TV (and on your cable box, satellite box, DVD player, etc.) tell the TV how to display a picture that will not fill the screen completely. If the program source (an older video-taped TV show, non-widescreen version DVD, etc) was not originally "shot" or saved in widescreen format, the TV offers you a choice on how to display the image. They ask if they should stretch or zoom to fill the screen (and you have to deal with the skinny / tall images or lost portions of the picture); or maintain the aspect ratio (not stretching or zooming) by leaving a part of the screen blank (grey or black) by inserting bars left and right or top and bottom of the screen.

Start out by telling the devices that send pictures in a format that matches you TV's screen ratio. I am assuming you've got a wide screen HDTV which would mean it should be set to "16 x 9" (a.k.a. 16:9) ratio display. If you have it set for 4 x 3 (a.k.a. 4:3) you should change it. Look for a setting on your TV that asks about stretching, zooming, etc. as this will be an issue when receiving picture from an off air antenna on your house when a TV station is airing an older, non-wide screen format TV show or movie.

TV signals provided by Cable TV or Satellite provider must be HDTV type signals. If you have the standard TV service (non-HD) no picture sent by them will ever fill the screen. This is because Standard Definition TV (SDTV) is not capable of those types of signals. You will have to bump up your subscription to HDTV service to get full screen pictures.

I hope this helps!

Can I use a regular antenna


Yes. You can use a regular antenna for any flat panel HD TV. You're only limitation the type of antenna and whether or not your flat panel TV has a built in digital tuner. If it does, you'll be able to scan for digital channels without any additional components, including the High Def ones,  though you may not get every channel available with a set of rabbit ears. A roof top antenna will give you a stronger signal and more channels. If your TV does NOT have a built in digital tuner, you'll have to purchase a digital converter box and attach your antenna to it to receive the digital and HD channels. Good luck.

White dashes across top left of TV screen


That is what I was going yo suggest. You can also adjust the picture size. "Just" will show all of the picture even the distortions on the edges. "Full" will in effect overscan and trim those edges off.

Green line problem


I had the same problem when we hooked up an hd satellite box. It's a simple solution using the Philips remote that came with your tv. The dial in the center of the remote with up down left right control will move the picture left or right up or down by holding the direction you want to go. Make sure to stand in front of tv.

This TV is a projector - not a plasma. I can't see how you would get "burn in" on this set. It should handle an HD picture fine.
