I was going crazy then i finally found a clue on google: hit the setting button on your digital cable remote, go into 'display', change aspect ratio to 16:9, screen size to 'stretch', and output to 1080 or 720 depending on what you have. Were HD channels full screen? If they were they were NOT set properly as above anyway and non-hd channels were black on both side with some having black all the way around on some channels, correct? Hope it helps! I have time warner digital cable and an 52 LG 70 with HDMI...no settings on your tv will fix this if you are in a similar situation b/c its the settting in the digital cable box that need to be re-adjusted.

Jvc lt-47em59 picture too large in all aspect modes


Larger as in -- the screen looks fatter. 4:3 stretched to 16:9 or as in Larger as in, screen is longer but thinner? 16:9 / 10 fitting onto ratio 4:3?

Asuming... its the second one -- that ur screen is box 4:3 and the picture is huge 16:9 which is why u need to "zoom out" to get the full picture -- are u sure some idiot didnt mess with the settings and make the tv "zoom in" if it isnt a aspect ratio issue?

... if it is a aspect ratio issue, and ur using 4:3 (small old box televisions) there should be a ratio setting either on ur television OR on ur set top box, that would by defualt with digital tv have wide screen 16:9 -- id suggest finding the settings either on the tv or the set top box or...

just get a bigger tv that supports 16:9 cheap for 50 bucks.

Check its picture aspect ratio settings.

Does not show full width of screen.


Under the settings, there's typically an option for the video width.
Under settings, go to Screen settings, then change the wide mode options to FULL.
This will make the picture fill the entire screen.
If that doesn't work, you may not be viewing an HD source. Change to an HD channel and you should have a full screen picture.

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 picture is zoomed in. Cannot go back to 'normal' and see everything. Credit names, etc are cut off on both sides.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check your cable box settings first. Sometimes the remotes have a picture size button on them, and someone might have pressed that by accident. Check the TV settings, press Menu Button & then go to Window/Image size. Now select Full Size.

Also check the settings of the converter box (if you are using it). The boxes also have a peculiar problem: Unless users manually change settings from show to show, the picture from many stations either won’t fill the screen, or it will be so big that part of the picture is cut off by the edges of the screen. The solution is to press the “zoom” button on the remote that comes with the converter box. That will expand the picture so it fills the screen.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

If you were just messing around with the keyboard, you have have just muted your audio output. You may even see in the lower right corner of your screen a red circle with a line through it over the volume control icon.
Laptop keyboards have function keys that let you mute your audio from the keyboard. Go into your control panel and click on the sounds icon, see if you have the mute box checked and uncheck it to un-mute your audio

The Vizio HDTV sets are all software driven. With the remote control select the menu option.
Then under the picture tab. look for the picture format full screen, wide screen. select the wide screen option. This setting should fill the screen.

Will not take picture


Hi there,

I know it was a while ago now but I just found your post, the lens on mine broke yesterday but being a student I'm looking for someone with a broken identical camera with spare parts to fix it rather than buying a new one. Did you fix the camera, if not and it is lying around unused I would be very grateful if you would part with it so I can get mine working again. I am looking for a working lens

Please contact me at samutacaratti@gmail.com

Kind Regards..
