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.

Try useing the picture shape button on the remote. Mine is set to "pix2" and I don't have a problem with black bars.

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.

Question

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.

answer 2
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.

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!

Yes you can install this unit on the wall or it can sit on the base which is included.
No there are no cooling fans in this unit.

Yes, this Sanyo is mountable. We mounted ours on a "floating" type pivoting stand.
There does not appear to be any cooling fans inside the set, but it appears to be ventilated well. It seems to run far cooler than our tiny 32" LCD. I would just make sure to just follow the guidelines that are included with the instructions and not obstruct the cooling vents.

The frame on the Sanyo is black plastic. It is very elegant, but is typical for this price point.
We have the TV mounted on a wall and are very happy with the frame.
Since esthetics are a personal choice, you would be well-served to look at both TVs in the store in order to make your own decision.
The chassis of this TV is metal - overall, an extremely well-made device.
