New "HS420" line from Sony... under the radar? - Page 7  

post #181 of 189
looks like i need to learn a little bit more patience.. after spending some more time with the set, and giving it a few more restarts.. i finally got it to magically fix itself.. seems like moving that ol' woofer did the trick.. let's hope it stays this way.. i'll keep y'all posted on this problem if you guys are interested

I bought a 30HS420 last night at best buy. Picture is amazing but when I watch movies in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio, you can see a weird clear line that is about an inch thick right above the bottom black bar and right below the top black bar. It's only during that aspect ratio. I can't seem to figure out what it is, I've never seen it before, It's really noticable in really light scenes. Anyone know what this is?

Since the picture tube has an AR of 1:1.78, anything wider will result in some bars above and below. Is that what you're seeing?

An overscan adjustment can fix this, it's a simple service menu tweak.

I'm not talking about the actual Black bars that you normally see in that aspect ratio. Right below and above the black bars there is a transparent clear line you can only see if you look really closely. It's about an inch thick and it's very obvious in light scenes.

I think CrocHunter nailed it - it sounds like overscan bounce, which can be adjusted in the service menu.

Don't worry a simple overscan fix will eliminate it or hide it.

How far do you sit from the TV? 6 feet should be your minimum viewng distance for a 30" HDTV. It does sound like overscan unless you're seeing this clear line in the movie image itself.

Yeah I've been sitting close because it's on my floor and I'm trying to find a good TV stand for it. Anyways, how do i fix it?
