Recently my TV's been cropping outer image edges whenever I plug a 1080p source. Tried 3 different sources: 2 PCs and a PS3, all HDMI. No adapters whatsoever, different cables.
If I click Display on TV remote, it says 1080p as expected, but clipping occurs.
Wide mode is set to full, although I've tried them all. One weird thing: until yesterday, when I connected any of these sources to my receiver (Integra - DTR-40.2) and then to TV, image was displayed fine. Receiver display shows 1080p in and out, 24b color.
I am pretty sure both computers and PS3 are feeding proper 1080p, since I've tried them in another panel and everything is fine. For making sure that the TV was the problem, I also saved a prtscreen picture of the displayed cropped image (PC connected directyl to TV) in a flash drive and played it on the receiver, and the whole image was there, not cropped!
At this point I've updated TV to last firmware: sony_tvupdate_2011_4027_aaa_auth.zip, nothing changed, although signal from receiver was still working fine.
Then I got in touch with Sony support, and Axel suggested a factory reset, which I did. Now things got worse, after resetting, even the signal coming from the receiver that was working before is now cropped just like all the others. I've tweaked every single TV option and can't find a possible source of error. This should be automatic, plug&play.
I use the TV as monitor for working, and the only temporary solution I've found was using NVIDIA Desktop resize, setting 1842 x 1036 that then fits as it should.
What is happening?? I really need a fix! I am an electronic engineer myself and TV is out of warranty, so please advise if someone has knowledge about it, even I have to open/replace anything, under my sole responsibility.
Please see attached pictures of the image cropped. I've ran self error check by pressing DISPLAY ---> 5 ---> VOLUME DOWN ---> POWER and there is only one error: HOST_WDT = 02 . Note that this was done just now, after the factory reset.
EDIT: Of course I've tried changing Wide mode, and it doesn't work. It should work on Full, but that is where image gets cropped.
