Annoying white line in 16:9 mode on 4:3 Rearpro




I recently bought a Sony KP61PS2 rear projection TV, which is a 4:3 model.

When switched to 16:9 mode, the TV displays an annoying white line above the start of the 16:9 image. Apparently this results from an area of the picture being displayed which is normally in the overscan region of a TV.

Do all 4:3 TVs suffer from this fault in 16:9 mode? Or can this be adjusted somehow?

I'm thinking about returning the set - I have until Monday to make up my mind (EU 14 days returns policy).

Thanks for any advice!

This seems to be a black level stabilization pulse. It is common, and shows up on most 4:3 sets (both direct view and RPTV) that physically squeeze the picture to support 16:9.
