Questions & Answers for Sanyo Sanyo 50" Class 720p 60Hz Plasma HDTV, DP50749

Question

I can't figure this TV out!!!! HELP!!!!

I just bought this TV 5 days ago and I can't figure out how to adjust the picture image to fit the entire full screen.....I selected some features that will either shrink the image or it will expand it to where it cuts off the image. It's really frustrating that I can't figure this out. Is there something I'm not doing? Is there a way I can make the image fit the entire screen without any images being cut off? or without making the image smaller that it will have black borders on the side/top??

HELP!!!

Your input is really needed!

Also, if you have cable service, check with your cable company. Cox in perticular has boxes that output in different modes. If you go into settings on your cable box, you can select output of stretch/etc. on the 4:9 aspect channels. You will have to play around with the settings to find the one that matches what you like. Contact the cable company if you need more help.

Your not using a true HD input such as hdmi or component (red, green, blue). without a true hd input the tv reverts back to regular format and displays it in the same way a traditional tv would.

I called Sanyo before I bought this TV as I had the same question as Iam retired and my TV is on 18+ hrs a day, and Sanyo told me this TV is rated at 60,000 hrs picture (lamp) life! Of course the circuit board, power module etc, could go bad as with all TV's, but thats why I bought the extended warranty online, as you cant beat that price!

What is the differents from LCD and Plasma screen HDTV?

You can think of a plasma TV as a bunch of little individual neon lights. Each pixel produces its own light.
LCDs are like a shutter in front of a light opening and closing to let light out. Each pixel is a gate. The source of the light is normally a neon light or some of the new sets have LED lights.
LCD Tvs tend to be brighter and more energy efficient.
Plasma sets have certain advantages over LCDs . They have a wider viewing angles, they do not have motion artifacts{better for fast moving objects}, and have much better blacks. The drawbacks are that they are heavier, not as bright, will reflect light, less sizes. Burn in is not a problem with current plasma TVs, some of the very first ones had some problems, not current ones.

Plasmas the screen can burn in (such as when playing video games for a long period of time fixed icons can burn into the screen. LCDs have a better picture and cannot burn the picture in. Plasmas are also cheaper, but would suggest and LCD

What side are the hookups on this TV?

The TV we purchase must have the hookups on the right side (screen facing you) because of the cords already run.

The hookups are located pretty much in the center on the bottom side of the TV. The power cord is closer to the right side.

The hookups are almost centered in the back. They face straight down not out the side. The HMDI and cable hookups are more toward the right side and the component ones are more towards the left side.

The Wii should have came with a set of composite cables (Y/W/R), if you are already using the composite connection on the TV, then you will have to purchase the component cables for the Wii system.

The Wii should come with all the cables to hook it up. You should be able to use either component cable(red, white, and yellow), S-video, or HDMI.

What is the difference between 720p & 1080p?

asked 4 years, 8 months ago

answer 1
The number 720 and 1080 refers to the number of horizontal lines used by a TV to produce an image on the screen also known as resolution.
(P)Progressive Resolution- a method of scanning vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning the lines in one consecutive pass allowing for a sharper picture.
In general, a 1080P would have more horizontal lines of the image than a 720P, which in fact would give you a higher quality resolution.
Keep in mind that just because you have a 1080p capable TV, that doesn’t mean you’re going to be seeing a 1080p picture every time you watch TV. There is nothing wrong with 720p High Definition they it will produce a terrific picture. To be completely honest it will be hard for most people to even tell the difference between High Def and Full HD.
So before you go out and make a big purchase to improve the resolution of your TV whether it be to High Definition or Full HD, make sure your equipment is compatible.

answer 2
720 + 1080 = number of horizantal lines of resolution in the picture. P = Progressive Scan. But 720P TVs still do 1080i but not 1080p. The more the better in 42" and up. Though if your not using it for HD it doesnt matter.

After alot of research online and going to other appliance centers I have asked the same question. With plasma tv's you are likely to get the burn in by leaving your gaming system or DVD player paused for an extended amount of time, which I have been told is about 30 minutes of nothing moving at all.

Most gaming systems do have a feature which is a burn in screen reduction, I highly recommend turning that on also. Plus with the Sanyo DP50749 there is a white out option in menu in case a image does happen to get burned in.

I'm assuming it being a plasma your refering to the "image burn" many people talk about. As far as i know your safe from a burn as long as you do not display the same screen for extended periods of time. Such as 10 hours or more, as long as the screen continues to change picture wise you should be fine. However people report burns after leaving the tv on CNN or ESPN for extended periods of time due to the Info bar displayed on the screen constantly.

Apparently you are already using Video 1 input (Y/W/R).
You will either have to purchase the component cables for the PS2 (G/B/R/W/R) or an A-B switch, which will allow you to view both devices using the Video 1 input.

What you need for your PS2 is HDMI cables to hook up to your tv and too your Playstation. Or you can go to your local Walmart and ask the electronics salesperson for high def coax cables for your playstation to hook up to your flat screen.
