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

You have a wide screen TV but i think the pictire or video you are watching is for 4:3 TVs.

How do I adjust the picture on my LG lcd tv it is too large for the screen?


On my LG (32LD320H)

The control is under
  • Menu > Picture
  • Aspect Ratio: (16:9 for most HD content. Use 'Just Scan' or 'Set by Program' for auto sizing.)
  • You may need to adjust your cable box or DVD for HD and matching display parameters.

Screen won't return to full size.


Have you tried to re-set the Aspect Ratio from either the remote control or going into the Menu setting & changing the picture size?
This is the settings for changing different size of screen formats eg 16:9

Can't get full picture when not on HD station


Check its screen resolution settings. 4:3 and 16:9. If it is set to 16:9, bottom and top part of the screen will cut off. The same effect will be there if it is set to 'wide' format.

A simple question - My new 42" LG tv is fine -


You should be able to change the aspect ratio to fit the size of your screen. This will be the 16:9 4:3 16:10 settings.

You can access these by going to MENU---> PICTURE -----> Select ratio that works----> exit out and watch TV.

IF this will not fix it you need to look into the signals being fed to the TV as sometimes they can have a funny effect on the output picture. Some cable boxes will alter the picture and then it won't come out right on the TV. If it is all inputs doing this tho then changing just the Aspect ratio on the TV should solve the problem.

Picture ratio


Programs that are recorded in 16:9 format appear full screen on a 16:9 TV. A program recorded in a standard 4:3 format will either be stretched to fit the screen or have side bars to fill the screen area. In the case of HD channels, the black side bars are part of the picture which is being broadcasted.

Picture problem


If all your wanted is to widen the picture then just push aspect or format on your remote control and put it on either 16:9 or full. But if your referring to HD then an HD picture fills the screen by itself no matter what setting you have the tv set to. If the screen isnt full then the program your watching isnt broadcasting in HD at that time. A common misconception is that because its an HD tv or an HD channel that it always should show in HD. This isnt true. It goes by the broadcast

My rca sdtv model 27v414t, the picture won't fit the screen, if it's formatted to 16:9 makes the picture a smaller square in the middle of the screen and the 4:3 makes it stretch all the way from top to...


You are describing normal operation. I have a Samsung with the 4:3 screen aspect ratio and deal with the same issues. With a program that is broadcast as HD I have the "letter box" pic. since this is needed to amintain the 16:9 ratio it is formatted in. Some programs come up as only filling part of the screen & at times I find the zoom mode less objectional to view. Even if you have a wide screen set you still deal with programs that are not in the 16:9 format. Perhaps eventually all programming will be in a consistent format, but for now we just have to put up with it. The good news is that your TV is not defective.

I have an 42LG50 and the picture is now a smaller box on the screen and the manual is now help in enlarging the picture, any ideas?


You possibly have the screen set to the 4:3 ratio. On the remote control use the aspect ratio button to toggle through the different size screen formats eg 16:9 etc. this will enlarge the picture to fill the screen.

Why did my picture become big so I can not see the sideline information


Press the RATIO button repeatedly to select the desired picture format. You can also adjust Aspect Ratio in the OPTION menu.
  1. Set By Program. Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source’s image. (4:3 → 4:3, 16:9 → 16:9)
  2. 4:3. Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio, with gray bars appearing at both the left and right sides.
  3. 16:9. Choose 16:9 when you want to adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
  4. Horizon. Choose Horizon when you want to adjust the picture in a non-linear proportion, that is, more enlarged at both sides, to create a panorama view.
  5. Zoom 1. Choose Zoom 1 when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  6. Zoom 2. Choose Zoom 2 when you want the picture to be altered, both horizontally extended and vertically cropped. The picture taking a halfway trade off between alteration and screen coverage.
  7. Cinema Zoom. Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. Note: When enlarging or reducing the picture, the image may become distorted. You can adjust the enlarge proportion of Cinema Zoom using D / E button. The adjustment range is 1~16.
