3D tv display

by Wyngs / November 10, 2013 12:38 PM PST

I have an older Mitsubishi 60in tv and a sony blu-ray player. I also have 3rd party 3d adapter which sits beneath the tv.

The problem is sometimes the 3D movies work great, and at other times I get a double picture (one below the other about half a screen).

This doesn't seem to be DVD related as a DVD that plays well today may not tomorrow.

Also, the blu-ray plays non-3D discs, and the same problem exists with them - in the non-3D mode of course.

Any ideas would be appreciated. I've a feeling it is operator error, but have been unable to pin it down.

Thanks in advance.

Tell us more of the 3D adapter & the rest

Without specific makes/models of all involved, it's no more than guesses. Also provide some title examples of DVD & BD discs that give you issues.

(Do you have the latest firmware for all devices, btw?)

Panasonic Bly-ray Disc Player (sorry. I said Sony above). Model DMP-BDT 100 DMP-BDT105 (I have no idea why it should have two model numbers).

Hope that helps.

Up to date firmware - no. The units are not hooked to a phone line or the internet.

2D to 3D format. On my system, the only format that works is the front to back. The left to right or up to down doesn't work. Try again and see which would work with your system. Good luck.

You could be right but "front to back - left right" etc snows me. I have no idea what you are talking about?

Will get more equipment info posted when I get home later today.

The 2D to 3D conversion is in the tv (in my system). I don't know if yours will be the same or not. In my LG there is a selections as I have mention plus some other 3D adjustment as well.

Okay, I guess it was too early last time I read your post. Although front to back is still a mystery. And top-bottom is new to me. I thought they were always left right.

If I have those other selections I sure can't find them. But thank you for the education. This tv is not, however, 3D without the external adapter.

I did finally find the tv manual tucked away with the wii stuff, but haven't had a chance to dig into it yet. Maybe I'll get lucky.

Ok, just curious.

Which converter do you have. Just did a little looking. It seem there are tons of them out there. I notice even the color glasses are back.

Ignore the coverter question.

You can only play the 3d blue ray discs. You probably need to turn off the 3D function if you are playing a non-3d disc (just a guess). Yeah, check the manual.

Yes, if the movie is blu-ray non-3D I have to turn off the 3D mode on the tv. There is a selection for that. And still, sometimes I get this split screen effect with double pictures.

Will be digging into the manuals here a bit deeper in the next few days. Hopefully I'll come up with something. I've a half dozen 3D movies here that I've never got to watch. (grin)
