Samsung LN-S2641DX/XXAA (overscan)

by Ranma006 / April 18, 2012 7:55 AM PDT

Hey guys,

I am having problems with the overscan with this TV. There seems to be no choices in the menu to do 1:1 pixel or any other settings like that. I have a feeling this will have to be changed in the service menu.

Does anyone know how to get into the menu and what I might want to change to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Is this from some PC computer?

If so, try naming the input to PC and explore menus and the manual.

Nope this has nothing to do with connecting to a computer.

Then what is it connected to?

It's rare to see overscan issues when connected to other things. I wonder what the setup is and if someone has changed the stock settings. Details may help and do try the name changes on the inputs. It's helped at times.

The TV is connected to a PlayStation 3 at the moment though HDMI. Changing the name of the inputs on the TV would fix the overscan problem?

I don't know that.

I'm sharing past experiences of what helped. The PS3 has a few versions and in some cases I've had to set it to 1080i.

Sorry that I don't know every combination but I'll share what I'd done out there.

In reply to: I don't know that.

I think I tried running it at 1080i but I will check it again. Currently i have it set at 720P. its really only a 720P set though. I can try changing the input names but I am unsure of what that would change. However it worked for you in the past... who knows Happy
