  1. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have a PT406LED (generic Chinese badge brand TV from Australia). It overscans a fair bit and there is no setting in the regular menu to stop the overscan. I have accessed the service menu and fixed the overscan there however when I change channels or inputs or turn the TV off, the default...
  2. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hi, I just purchased a new Element E2T4019. It's working well, however it comes with a nasty bit of overscan that you can't change in the basic settings menus. I then entered the service menu (pressing menu, then 0000) and happily found a setting to turn off overscan. Problem solved! However...
  3. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    The model of my Philips TV is 32pfl5322d/37. I have been messing with the normal settings for a while now but nothing I do seems to work. So far the only thing that seems to have had an impact was changing the connection type to PC, even then i'm still missing a good 5-7% of the screen on each...
  4. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I recently purchased a Panasonic Viera TC-32LX14 for entertainment use, but upon plugging in my sources via HDMI (Chromecast, Laptop, & PS3), I immediately noticed there was a slight overscan/zoom. After hours of searching for online help, I have made no progress in solving this issue. I cycled...

    I was able to access the hex editor on my Panasonic LCD TV. Can someone help me fix my overscan through the editor? Model no. TX-32LE8M, HD ready, bought in 2009. I would also like to mention that I accessed the editor from service menu 2 and there wasn't any option to fix the overscan from the...

  7. PlayStation Area
    Been using various consoles with my old but gorgeous Samsung 50" Plasma HP S5053. However, now with the new PS4 the edges of the picture are being cut off. Something about "overscan" I was told. I don't see any settings on the Samsung or on the PS4 to fix this. Any suggestions? Has my old...
  8. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have has this tv for a while now and I have noticed that it indeed has overscan with all content no matter what HDMI port I use. I have managed to get into the factory service menu but I couldn't find an option or setting that deals with overscan. I was hoping there might be another way to fix...
  9. Display Calibration
    I have old LG plasma (42PC52) and it has very big overscan that I can't see HUD in games on my Xbox One. Even when I go to service menu (by holding MENU button on both TV and IR) and change 'OverScan' option to '0' it changes nothing. Is there any way I can get rid off Overscan?
  10. Display Calibration
    Hi all, I have a problem with my TV. I have overscan on all but one resolution on my laptop (which strangely isn't even the native resolution!) Also my Roku stick has overscan. I am able to access the service menu of the TV and have found a service manual but I can't find any information on...
  11. Display Calibration
    Hi. I'm having an issue with overscan. I am using a PlayStation 4 connected via HDMI (of course) to a Panasonic TC-P46G25 TV. When I use the "Sharpness & Overscan" test pattern in AVS HD 709, the white "margin" is missing. I have the TV's Aspect Adjustment set to "HD size 2." Also, I am playing...

    Pseudo-Poll: Is "1:1 pixel mapping" taking the place of "overscan"? Overscan causes loss of picture quality. To enjoy the best possible picture quality of your flat-panel TVs, you should turn off "overscan" and watch them in "1:1 pixel mapping" mode. The following website explains what...

  14. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have an LG 32LX1D 32". On my Xbox one, I can give it 720p with the HDMI port. Overscan is an issue which cuts off part of the screen. When I access the service menu, I can change the "in" category to 1280x720 pixels and it's fixed. But once I turn my tv off/on it resets. Any way I can save...

    Hi, my 2 TV have little black line when I desactive Overscan. Possible to calibrate this in Service Menu ?
  16. Direct View (single tube) CRT Displays
    The horizontal and vertical adjustments seemed to be greyed out under auto-wide settings. I did find the service menu but I did not want to risk it and lots of internet information on this has been 404'd over the years. Any advice? I got this used for free, it seems to be in very good condition...
  17. Direct View (single tube) CRT Displays
    So I got a KV-34HS420 and noticed that the edges were being cropped off a bit. I managed to get to the service menu and changed the values MDHS, MDHP, MDVS, and MDVP. I was able to uncover the left and right sides but the top (and bottom to a lesser extent) have this weird thing going on...
