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.

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

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.

Question

Can you still view the picture well from the sides on the Sanyo 50" 720p 60Hz HDTV, DP50749?

I've seen some LCD's and plasma tv's where you couldn't really view shows unless you were setting in front and not off to the side as the picture was too distorted.

There is very little difference between 720p and 1080i. For fast moving images your probably slightly better off with 720p because 1080i is an interlaced picture. This article can explain it better than I can. The other person who answered this was comparing it to 1080p, not 1080i. Big difference.

I purchased 50" (720p) Sanyo on Black Friday because of the $598 price. I already have a 42" (1080p) Phillips. No matter what brand the 1080p is the best picture. No matter how many HDMI cables I put on the Sanyo, change settings still not the greatest picture. If you want the ultimate television picture spend the money on a 1080p television, get digitial cable and put a HDMI cable on it.

When you are trying to find the actual screen size you must measure it on a diagonal. The 49" is the actual measurement from side to side not diagonally.

I had 50" of space in my entertainment unit. I believe the demension were 49.5 inches and it fit perfectly. The 33" is high and the 14.2 is the depth. I will admit this TV was heavier than I anticipated. Remember also to never lay it flat. This will damage the plasma.
