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.

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.

Ratio question

When my husband & I were in the store looking at this tv, we noticed in the features that the ratio is 30,000:1. The tv just below it had a ratio of 15,000:1 and another had 4,000:1. What does this mean?

The contrast ratio, that you are speaking is the measurement of black to white colors.
In reality the higher the number the better the picture quality will be, but the contrast ratios are prepared by the panel manufacturer, which means they can make the number how ever they would like too. We at Sanyo, asks our customers to compare the picture quality at the retail store.

The ratio you are asking about is very important to the performance of the tv. The higher the ratio 30,000:1 60,000:1 etc the better the picture should be. In theory it should be brighter, sharper, and have more color. So 30,000:1 is superior when compared to a tv of 15,000:1 or 4,000:1.

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.

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.

It depends on the cables you are using to connect the PS3 to the TV. If you are using the composite cables that came with the PS3, then you will connect it via Video 1 (Y/W/R), if you are already using Video 1 input, then you will have to purchase either the component cables or the preferred method to connect the PS3 to the TV is by HDMI.

You can connect the VCR/DVD to the TV using the composite cables (Y, R, W) and then connect the WII to the composite inputs on the VCR portion of the combo.

Use component cables (green/blue/red) for the Wii video signal. Hook up your VCR to the yellow composite input on the TV. You can find a good deal on component cables at a site that has "mono" and "price" in the name;)

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.'
