Not all bradcast are in 16:9 resolution (wide screen). Most are still in 4:3 (old TV).
Sometime the advertisements are in 16:9 letterbox to project correctly on 4:3 TV and TV logo or titles are on the bottom or top of the picture. If TV is set to project wide screen, these logos or writings will be cut off.
If you have an option to switch TV resolution from remount, you will see whole picture.
Check your TV manual for settings.

My Benq projector is cutting off part of the screen image (the top and bottom)...I've tried adjusting the resolution on my computer, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?


when you say its cutting off the image, do you mean it is blanking the top and bottom off the picture. Is the image that is displayed on the computer the same as on the projector or is it just a cinemascope version of the computer screen

Picture jumps


you might have bad caps or the vertical output integrated circuit, try to locate the vertical ic and check the surrounding areas for bad capacitors.

Picture is cut off at top and bottom


I had the same problem with my westinghouse 47 inch HDTV. It turned out that someone had inadvertently hit the "format" key on my satellite (Direct TV) TV remote controller. If you have satellite TV you might want to check this out. I set it back to the previous setting and I get the entire screen. Hope this helps someone.
