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.

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.

Sanyo Plasma TVs use panels from a variety of manufactures and most of them recommend an operating temperature of 14°F to 1402°F (-10°C to +60°C) as the extreme. Condensation and electrical circuits do not mix, so personally I would not use the TV at that extreme cold temperature. Storage temperature (TV off and unplugged) can be lower to 0°F (-18°C) but you must let the TV warm up for 12 hours before plugging it in or operating.

if you use your fireplace then the safest place would be away from the heat as it will more than likely ruin the tv and/or melt it

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

This TV will only output 720p picture, but will accept 1080i (and I'm pretty sure 1080p) input and then scale it internally to 720p. In other words, it will accept digital inputs of 480i & p, 720i & p, and 1080i & p.

To answer the question, it's important to understand the difference between 720p vs 1080i.
A 720p signal is made up of 720 horizontal lines. Each frame is displayed in its entirety on-screen for 1/30th of a second. This is known as progressive scan (hence the 'p')The quality is like watching 30 photographic images a second on TV.

A 1080i signal comprises 1080 horizontal lines but all the lines are not displayed on-screen simultaneously. Instead, they are interlaced (hence the 'i'), every other line is displayed for 1/60th of a second and then the alternate lines are displayed for 1/60th of a second. So, the frame rate is still 30 frames per second, but each frame is split into two fields, which your brain then puts together subconsciously.

Most of the time interlacing works fine, but for fast moving images, such as sports like baseball and hockey it can cause problems which manifest themselves as a 'stepping' effect on-screen. Progressive scan signals don't have this problem and so are better suited to sports.

ESPN puts it like this: 'Progressive scan technology produces better images for the fast moving orientation of sports television. Simply put, with 104 mph fastballs in baseball and 120 mph shots on goal in hockey, the line-by-line basis of progressive scan technology better captures the inherent fast action of sports. For ESPN, progressive scan technology makes perfect sense.'

As long as you turn on the panel protection features you should not have any issues with the the panel. I have this unit in my home and have my PC, PS2, DVD and Direct TV receiver connected and have not had any issues.
The sound quality is terrific, no vibrations, no distortion of any kind.
