Customer Question

I have a 51 inch 3d plasma smart tv. Sometimes the picture suddenly becomes larger than the screen. This is temporary, sometimes briefly and sometimes longer. Turning the tv off and then on again always corrects the screen overrun. How do I fix this problem?
Thank you, ***** ***** can shed some light on this.

No cable box ??You just watch dvd`s on this tv ?

In any case ,when this happens , instead of turning the tv off and on again , if you use the P.SIZE button on the tv`s remote , can you bring the picture back to normal ?

Hello and sorry you're having problems. Since this issue keeps occurring and is only corrected for a period by unplugging the set and plugging it back in, the permanent fix is going to be to replace the Mainboard. This is the component that processes the picture size, and the processor can begin to fail- causing the problems you're having. If you're looking to repair the set yourself, then you would purchase the board at the link below (it's a plug and play board), and replace it yourself: Alternatively, if this is not something you're comfortable with, then a shop will typically charge $250 parts and labor to swap the main, and can be located at the link below: Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix. If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click a POSITIVE RATING before you go- as it's how I am credited for my work. You can follow up at any time, at no additional cost.
