Panasonic SC PT 750

by theblileys / February 16, 2008 1:00 AM PST

I recently bought this Home Stereo system and love the sound it has! My only problem is that now some of my DVD's play with the sides removed, it is not full widescreen (like when you are on an HD channel and a commercial that is not in HD comes on). I have a 47 Toshiba Widescreen (flat, but not LCD or Plasma) HDTV. I have tried changing the aspect ratio, the display settings, the video settings on both the TV and the DVD player. The only time I can get it full screen is when i use the zoom option, and that just makes the picture look fuzzy and unclear. How do i fix this problem???

I don't think there are anyway of "fixing" it.

Sides removed?

Are you seeing the entire picture just smaller or are you saying you're missing the sides of the picture meaning content? I'm sure there is a setting you should be able to use in order to get full content. It might just be a matter of the right combination between the display and the DVD player. It is odd that some DVDs don't have this problem. I had a panasonic HTIB system and never incurred those problems nor with my current setup have had issues. I was very happy with that system which still sounds pretty good in my sisters house. But there must be compatible settings. Good luck.

Full picture, just smaller viewing area. Sounds like the Tv is set to 4:3. 47" crt? That must weigh a million pounds. We had a 36" crt. I used to be able to carry it by myself somehow. When I bought my Panasonic Plasma a few years ago. The many picture aspects are what won me over,besides being a tad bit more affordable(600 bucks)than the Pioneer. Which also has a good selection. Too many displays have few display settings such as Visio. It's either 4:3 or zoom 1 or zoom 2 which lops off part of the picture like you're discribing when you zoom. I think a lot of people forget all the other functions when purchasing Tv's. They just look for the biggest they can afford, then picture quality just to discover they don't care for the other functions or lack of when the time comes. I hope i'm correct about your set being set to 4:3 and this remidies the problem.
