My tv the picture is bigger than the tv screen

When I am in HD, the picture is bigger than the TV. For example, you only see the "H" in the HD logo and on the left side, you only see half of the words.

    akai pt4298hd projection screen,this tv is a hd monitor no dtv tuner the aspect ratio is set when a hd device is connected via component [no hdmi input available on tv]. At this time it is connected to a sat hd receiver via component,aspect ratio is set at 16:9 ,the tv is set on wide screen and picture color on dinamyc.Something that I found is that the perfect focus just scans up to 44%. This tv has been in the shop before I owned it. I was wondering if this tv has any kind of adjustment inside.
    Thankyou for your time.

    I am having the same problem. It is an AKAI, model # pt5299hd projection TV. We have it set to 16:9 and checked the zoom. The picture is too big. When we hit "Info" on the DirecTV remote the info box is half off the screen. It's almost like a computer screen, where you can adjust the display to be concave or not. It has a wave to it, like an upside-down U but very slight.

It sounds like you have hit the zoom button or your aspect ratio isnt right. the aspect ratio should be set to 16:9 (if there isnt a button for aspect ratio, change it in the menu) and there should be a zoom button on your remote and just keep hitting that and it should return to normal. If neither works, post your tv brand and model and i'll try to find another answer

How do I make the picture bigger so it fills the screen and not have black bands at top and bottom


Banding of the screen usually means that the aspect ratio of the broadcast is different than the screen size ratio. Most modern TVs are 16:9 ratio. Most modern TV broadcasts and movies are as well. In those cases, when in HD mode, you will see the picture fill the entire screen. Older broadcasts and many syndicated reruns are in the old 4:3 format and will be banded. Also, some movies are in larger formats than 16:9 and will reduce in size in order to get the entire picture on the screen. That being said, most TVs DO have a stretch and.or zoom feature that will expand all images to full screen size. Be advised that this can result is image distortion, especially of the 4:3 ration broadcasts. Others will have some of the picture cut off and you may see some items such as network logos, etc. partially chopped off in this mode.

Change the aspect ratio on the remote. If this does not fix, change the aspect ratio on your cable or sat box.

Hau do i move the picture sidles


Not enough information...
What type of tv and model etc.

One thing you should be aware of.
If you do not have HD tv...say direct tv
then you maybe stuck with a smaller picture.

Example:
If I run my direct tv HD I get a full picture but, if
I am running it in a non HD channel...the picture
is alot smaller with the black sides and top.

The other option is on your remote you should
have buttons to control stretch etc.

Use those and see if they help.

As far as dvd"s go...make sure your not using
the letterbox versions...full screen versions should
give you ...well...Full Screen.

good luck

Part of the picture is being cut off, how do i


Just called Sony about this same problem...taking your CABLE BOX remote, push the # key on the bottom right of the remote (it also says HD Zoom on mine). You can cycle through 4 or 5 zoom options...make sure you are on an HD channel to see the changes. :)

Size of screen


If you have black panel os sides the picture is not HD. Not allways the HD broadcasting have HD shows. The advertising for example is not HD. Check the picture size in the tv to be "allonged" and play with the screen size with your cable box remote. Usually is # button.
From what I know LC42D62U has no TV Guide feature.
