Optimizing video images

After the video device is connected properly and the image is on the screen, you can optimize the image
using the onscreen menus.

Change the Aspect ratio. Aspect ratio is the ratio of the image width to image height. TV screens are usually

1.33:1, also known as 4:3. HDTV and most DVDs are 1.78:1, or 16:9. Choose the option that best fits
your input source in the menus, or press the Resize button on the remote to cycle through the options.

Adjust the Keystone, Contrast, Brightness, Color, or Tint in the Picture menu.
Select a different Color Temperature or use the Color Control to adjust the gain and offset of the red, green,

and blue color.

Select a specific Color Space or Gamma.
Select a different Video Standard. Auto tries to determine the standard of the incoming video. Select a

different standard if necessary.

Turn overscan on to remove noise around the video image.
Fine tune component inputs using the TrueLife™ adjustments.
Choose High Power to maximize the light output.
Make sure your DVD player is set for a 16:9 television. See your DVD player’s user’s guide for instructions.

Using the menus

To open the menus, press the menu button on the

down to highlight the desired submenu, then press the
Select button.

To change a menu setting, highlight it, press Select,
then use the up and down arrow buttons to adjust the
value, select an option using radio buttons, or turn the feature on or off using check boxes. Press Select to
confirm your changes. Use the arrows to navigate to another setting. When your adjustments are complete,
navigate to Exit, then press Select to go to the previous menu; press the Menu button at any time to close
the menus.

indicate the menu’s level, ranging from one (the Main
menu) to four (the most nested menus).
