Change the picture settings using the remote, try 16:9, letterbox, and also wide 4:3.

    If the TV is 16:9 screen, then having two black bands at the side it will be normal.

    All you need to do is grabbing the remote, accessing to the display/picture menu, and changing settings to Auto (usually the best) or 16:9.

    If the side bands are very big, and image eccessively narrow, and getting more narrow in time, as TV stays on, that that means that there is a fault concerning the vertical deflection circuit. In that case you call a technician using the phone number listed on the owner manual, or contact the seller if TV is less that one year old.

How to widen my curtis 42 inch flat sreen top and bottom

Some TV's have a zoom function others do not. The program you're watching controls whether the top and bottom of the screen have black bars and is not the fault of the TV. Widening the picture cuts off a lot of the viewable picture and distorts the image. Circles tend to be oval. If your TV has a zoom function, use it.

My problem is my TV a phillips 32 has broken screen

Whenever a LCD screen has been damaged, it's not going to be cost effective to repair. The part will cost you nearly what the replacement cost of a new T.V.. Sell the good parts that are inside your T.V. on Ebay.

Red light blinks one long and 4 shorts


your TV has developed a power problem.

You can try to fix it yourself or take is to a repairman.

Go straight to the power supply board. Look for any bulged capacitor or burnt component. If you don't find any, get a meter and continuity test to read the board so that you can detect the defective component and make necessary replacement.

Good luck.

You have damaged the screen and there is no cheap repair. Replacing this screen is just as costly as buying a new TV. Sorry this happened. The screens are fragile and very expensive. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Black end "stripes" on non-HD images on LN-2341W

Arte you using a cable provider? if so you should be able to adjust it to a wide screen or stretch, most cable providers are supposed to apply the settings when installing the box, so that the screen will auto fit your set, otherwise you will get image retention
