Stuck on Zoom

Not sure how this came about, but all of the HD broadcast stations are zoomed on the TV when I try to press the format button on the remote it says that formating is not available for DTV. I'm confused. how in the world do I get it to fit the picture in the screen and not be zoomed?

That's a weird one, allot of mitsubishi tvs will lock the format for hd programing but normally its locked at "Full" not "zoom". Do you have a cable box or satellite box? If so you might want to contact them and see if you are able to zoom them in on the box...if you can that might be where your problem is. If you cannot zoom on the box then you have a weird problem, my first guess would be the signal board in the TV. Let me know about the box and then we can move forward.

Thanks

Picture on screen is too big head of people are cut off it does not show complete picture


Use your cable or satellite tv remote to adjust the aspect ratio. If you have cable there is a button on the remote called hd zoom and it has this symbol: #. On the satellite tv remotes it usually says format or aspect. You might even have to go into the cable box/satellite tv receiver menus to adjust the aspect ratio/picture format. Once you have done so you can fine tune the picture even further with the television remote's wide/format/aspect/zoom button. Also check and make sure your television is on the right input and that your cable box/satellite tv receiver is set at the right resolution for the television 1080p/1080i/720p.

Picture does not fit into 52 in as if there is a zoom on can't see writing at bottom of screen, for example basketball scores


You have to press the hd zoom# or format or wide (or etc.) button on your cable tv or satellite tv remote. If that isn't doing anything then you might have your cable box or satellite tv receiver set on the wrong resolution for your television. Your television's remote might also have a wide or format button on it that needs to be pressed. Also make sure your television is on the right input.

Hi - i'm stuck in zoom


See if there is a button on the remote that says "format" and push it until the screen is the right size. Also, if you are using the remote that came with your cable/satelite box then there is a format section in the menu of that as well. You just have to go through the menus slowly until you find the settings for format and press adjust until the screen fits properly to your likings. I wish you luck, Russmann.

Full Zoom Mode Problem


Look on your remote and see if there is a "Format" button, press this to cycle through the different format options, and find one that fits.

If there is not a Format button on your remote, try looking in the setup menus and see if there is an option for formatting or zoom.

Going nuts!!


If you are using Dish Network, while in SAT mode, hit the star key on the remote (also labled FORMAT). It will start scrolling through certain modes: zoom, partial zoom, normal, stretch... etc)

Wrong aspect ratio!


It was the zoom !! I lost the tv remote, I went to Radio Shack for a Universal remote and they didn't have one with a Zoom button,
The tv menu doesn't have a Zoom button either...Finally found one that works and all is WELL! Depending on what the tv station transmits, the screen size changes in the auto-matic selection in the menu.
