Samsung BBE Digital HDTV 1080i- Screen not fitting TV

Hello, I have a Samsung BBE Digital HDTV 1080i flatscreen television. I have my service through Dish Network. I do not have any HD channels set up as of yet as I just got the TV. I have tried everything from the TV to change the screen size to fit the TV 4:3, 16:9, Zooming in and out and nothing seems to work and sides and top of screen are cut off. I have tried to look in the setting for the Dish but cannot find anything. I think it would have to be within the Dish? Please let me know if you can assist.

SOURCE: TV picture doesn't fit in screen no matter what the setting

Ok, so I think I have your solution :)

You're actually my first when it comes to this site, so hopefully this fixes your problem!

Step 1 - Turn off the cable box, but leave the TV on

Step 2 - On the front of the 8300HD, press the "guide" button and the "info" button at the same time

Step 3 - Choose "HD" for High Definition, or "SD" for standard definition. (Sounds like you're HD?)

Step 4 - Choose the aspect ratio 16:9

Step 5 - Choose "progressive scan" if it asks you.

Now press the "power" button on the box, does that fix it?

try checking the menu setting on your Dish Network, there may be a television format in that menu set up, if it is only when a dvd player is playing, then check the format on that, so on so forth... that is one place to start, check if it is local (TV) or if it is from attached component ( Dish dvr/ dvd etc). also refer to your owner's manual.. if all else fails, call customer service @ insignia

I have a Panasonic HDTV 1080i TAU BBE projection TV,I can't get a remote to work with it.


Check first to see if remote works---most shops or Radio shack have a remote tester---point remote at it and push a button and tester will indicate if remote works----some digital cameras will also work for this.

If remote is good either a problem with the remote receiver on front of set or the remote circuit inside the set.

Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

Hi!!! my Tv is a Panasonic HDTV 1080i BBE High definition this is not a flat screen, the problem that it has is that the screen is not working well it looks like bouble imagen, what can I do?


I have never heard anybody refer to their tv as looking like a "bubble image" in the 15 full-time years that I have been a television technician, but all I can assume, is that you have a convergence problem, and you will need to replace both convergence ic's, and possibly some resistors. Approx. cost to repair by proffesional would be around $300.oo.

Have a new 50" Samsung Plasma and new cable box/dvr. Set up the TV for 1080i, but it will change that setting from channel to channel. Some channels are way off-center, almost as though it thinks it is...


I'm sure you enjoy your Samsung. It's a very good set. Unfortunately the set isn't causing the change in format from one broadcast to another. We are in a transitional stage right now where some programs were made in 16/9 and others in 4/3. Also, some are analog(480) some are digital(720) and some are hd(1080). In order for every program to fit your screen it has to go through the original format matching the broadcasters and the service providers output before even getting to your house. Just a few years ago there were many more formatting screen size issues but now it's getting closer to 75-85 percent of all programming having been either resized or reformatted for the 16/9 sets. Soon it will all fit properly. Hope this helps, Russmann.

Convergence panasonic HDTV 1080i bbe hi definition


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Black boarder on screen of my samsung hdtv 1080i


You may have to change the aspect ratio but doing so may change the picture quality. Your owners manual should explain how to do this. If you don't have the manual you may be able to download it from Samsung for your particular model TV.

1. Do I need any additional equipment to watch HDTV broadcasts on my HDTV-compatible TV?
In order to view over-the-air (OTA) HDTV broadcasts, you need to be within the reception area of a TV station broadcasting HDTV signals. Some TVs may require a set-top HDTV tuner and an external antenna to receive the broadcasts. Your cable or satellite provider may also offer HDTV channels as a part of their service, eliminating the need for a separate tuner. Please contact your local service provider to find out what kind of HDTV services they may offer.

2. What is CableCARD and how does it work?
HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card from your cable provider that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcasts without a bulky set-top cable box. Please call your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area.

HDMI, which stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface", is the consumer electronic industry's first connection capable of transmitting uncompressed digital audio/video signals. Components featuring HDMI can transmit both digital audio and video over one convenient cable, replacing the tangled mess that resides behind many home theater components. HDMI also offers improved quality over traditional analog connections thanks to all-digital transmission. Digital sources like DVDs and HDTV programming can now be transferred digitally from source to display without analog conversions that can degrade the original signal.

Unlike the HDMI interface, DVI only handles digital video. Through the use of an adapter, a DVI device can be connected to an HDMI device, but only video content can be transmitted. The audio signal would have to be transmitted through other methods such as analog RCA outputs or an optical digital output.

4. What's the difference between 720p and 1080i HDTV broadcasts? Does my CRT projection HDTV support both?
HDTV signals can be broadcast in either 720p and 1080i. It's up to the broadcaster which signal format to use, and both have their benefits. Our CRT projection HDTVs display 1080i signals in their native format. For 720p broadcasts, you can use the settings on your HDTV set-top tuner, cable box, or satellite tuner to convert a 720p signal into a 1080i signal that your TV can display.

btn_top_gold.gif spacer.gif line_gold.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif5. Why do I still see black bars on my widescreen TV when viewing certain widescreen DVDs and HDTV broadcasts?
Your widescreen TV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (1.78:1), which is the aspect ratio of HDTV. However, movies are filmed at several different aspect ratios, including 2.35:1. Also referred to as "scope", 2.35:1 is a very panoramic aspect ratio that provides a wide field of view in the theater. Scope is much wider than your widescreen TV, so it still requires the use of letterboxing ("black bars") to fit the entire image on screen. Some TVs and DVD players have a zoom function that allows you to blow up the image so it fills the screen, but the sides of the image must be cropped in order to do so.

6. What will 4:3 broadcasts and DVDs look like on a widescreen TV?
There are multiple settings for adjusting the appearance of 4:3 material on Panasonic widescreen TVs. It can be viewed with black bars on the sides, preserving the way it was originally intended to be viewed. Some viewers find the black bars distracting, so they might prefer one of the stretch modes that lets you fill the entire TV screen with the image. One such mode is the JUST (justify) mode, which stretches only the outer portion of the picture while leaving the center untouched.
