New LG LCD television - have it programmed to be 16:9 format but, the picture does not fill the screen - could this be related to the setting of the cable box that is also feeding in the picture?? have changed the picture format to every option - zoom 1 will work but, portions of the picture are lost and quality is less. Thank you

It sounds like you have the Zoom feature in the wrong mode. There should be several levels of zoom that you can cycle through with your remote. These were designed so that you can fill a 16:9 aspect screen with a 4:3 picture if you want to. You also may have the Auto Format feature turned on. Go into settings and check that first. It sounds like you should be set on 16:9. Sometimes the right and left arrow keys on the remote will cycle through the various formats.

Every time I use my component video, the screen is cut on both sides. I wonder if it can go full scene or wide screen. Need Help.......


suggest you check the signal source settings. Eg, if it is a set top box driving that input then check that device picture settings are set to widescreen (16:9) format.

Can only get "4:3" and "compressed 16:9" screen format. Want full "16:9" not compressed. How?


HDTV ready means that it will process HDTV signal to be viewed on you set. The size of your screen is still in a 4:3 ratio. Unless you have a true 16:9 size sceen you cannot get the full 16:9 picture. The actual physical size of the sceen is what makes TV's true HD or not. In other words, the screen has to be twice as wide as it is tall or 16:9. Your screen is almost square or 4:3. It can only show a compressed version of the 16:9. Thanks for using fixya.

How do I expand my Tv screen


If the physical size of your screen is 4:3 the only thing it can show is a compressed version. The screen is physically not able to show the true 16:9 version. The true 16:9 HD signal has been developed to show on a screen that is twice as wide as it is long or 16:9 ratio. Your screen is almost square or 4:3 ratio. I hope this helps. Thanks for using fixya.

New Samsung 1080p TV not displaying Full 1080 from PS3 Blu Ray movies


Hi hsaucier,

Although you have a wide-screen television, it is possible the video you are viewing was recorded in an even wider format. The bars should be smaller than if you were viewing the same DVD on a TV with a 4:3 aspect ratio, but will likely not disappear unless you view the DVD at a zoom setting. Many movies are shown in theaters at a wider ratio than 16:9, and the Blu-Ray disc has probably retained the entire picture rather than cropping it to fit your screen.

I recommend trying different viewing options that zoom in slightly. Be aware that this may cut off part of the picture from the left and right sides, but depending on your personal preference, you may not notice anything missing.

Thank you,
Jason,

I have a T5054 TV and the picture has zoomed in and is way too big, however in the picture settings menu the zoom option is not highlighted in Component mode.


There could be a problem, but verify the settings as listed in the owner's manual as follows:

1 Press the MENU button to display the menu.
Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select Picture, then press the ENTER button.
2 Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select Size, then press the ENTER button.
3 Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select the screen format you want.
Press the ENTER button.
Press the EXIT button to exit.
16:9 : Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
Zoom1 : Magnifies the size of the picture on the screen.
Zoom2 : Expands the Zoom1 format picture.
Wide Fit : Enlarges the aspect ratio of the picture to fit the entire screen.
4:3 : Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode.
Just Scan : Use this function to see the full image without any cutoff when DTV
or HDMI 720p/1080i signals are input.
Press the P.SIZE button on the remote control to change the picture size.


And realize the restrictions as listed:

• In TV, VIDEO, S-VIDEO, and COMPONENT(480i, 480p) modes, all screen
modes can be selected. (16:9 ➞ Zoom1 ➞ Zoom2 ➞ 4:3)
• In COMPONENT(720p, 1080i) or HDMI(720p, 1080i) mode, 16:9, 4:3 and
Wide Fit can be selected.
• In Zoom1, Zoom2 and Wide Fit modes, you can move the picture on the
screen by pressing the ▲ or ▼ button.
•You can not change the picture size when PIP is set to Double.
•When Double ( , ) mode has been set in PIP, the Picture Size cannot
be set.
•Wide Fit can be used when watching a Digital HD (High Definition) signal.
Wide Fit sets the optimum picture format by expanding it both horizontally and
vertically. For example, you can reset the picture in 4:3 format to 16:9. Wide Fit
does not support all external devices (DVD, VCR etc.).


Keep us posted.
