question about my Toshiba HD TV

by rbaker5 / January 31, 2007 7:18 AM PST

I currently own a Toshiba 51HX94, rear projection HD-TV and on some HD and non HD programming, the bottom right corner of the screen is being cut off. It cuts off about a half an inch of what is usually the logo of the channel that I am watching. I don't care to see the logo, but it is annoying to know that I am not seeing everything that is being projected.
Does anybody have any advice on what I can do to fix this? Is this something that I can do myself or do I need to use my warranty? Thanks!

You have a 3 tube rear projector t.v. Which Toshiba dropped years ago You said something about warrenty? So the problem is If you did buy it new and in the box with factory warrenty you should have been told this is an outdated t.v, and is not made anymore So If you got it for a really cheap price ok IIf you just bought it you should not have paid over $500 for it I say this because I just sold My old 65" Sony 3 tube set for $650 The problem with 3 tube rear projectors is the t.v. is the convergence need adjustmen all the time as the tubes age and the picture is very dim also you have to set rite in front of it. I only had my Sony for less than a year and got tired of the dim picture. If the t.v. is under warrenty? fine .if not pull of the back panel and see if there is anything hanging from the inside of the cabnit or something covering the c.r.t. good luck and please post back steweee

Thanks for the response. I purchased the TV 2.5 years ago, and was foolish enough to buy the extended 3 year warranty, so that is why I still have a warranty on it. The picture itself is great, the HD looks awesome and there are no dim spots that I notice, the only issue is that on some channels the logo on the lower right hand corner isn't fully visible. I've tried running the convergence, but it didn't seem to help, but I'll run it again and possible open up the back as you suggested. Thanks again for the suggestion, does anybody else have any thoughts? Thanks!

Do you have an aspect menu? Most tvs have 2 different 16x9 settings. FOXHD is usually different than any other channel as far as their aspect of HD.

Check the aspect ratio. . .

of the INPUT signal. My DishNetwork HD box has several. If I set it wrong, the bottom part of the screen is cut off.

Thanks for everybody's suggestions. I believe the issue is with the ratio. If I change the ratio I can see the part of the TV that is being cut off, but I can't see the information about the show that I am watching that Comcast gives on the bottom of the screen. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to pick one or the other. I'm looking forward to buying a new TV hopefully in the not to distant future. Thanks again.
