It shows picture not in full screen like the movies black screen at top,in middle is the picture,black screen at bottom

If this happen on DVD's it is because the DVD is formated to Widescreen, 16x9 size, your TV is 4x3 size. Unless the Menu has an option of Picture size, or Format, to set to Full screen. there is nothing you can do other than be sure to check the DVD for picture format size before purchasing.

Rca scenium 52" has light bar area down each side

I take it that you have watched many hours of 4x3 video on this 16x9 TV . What you see is evidence of screen burn, like they used to warn about with the old "pong" type games with stationary objects. The 4x3 pattern is burned into the phosphor in the projection tubes. the area of the burned pattern is not as efficient as the unused areas that make up the 16x9. If you watch enough 16x9 it may even out somewhat, but will never be perfect. Replacing the tubes will fix it, but they're pricey, and you may be subject to it happening again, depending on your viewing habits.

Blue on the left and right sides of my rca scenium, 65 inch hi def rear projection tv

Well what may have happened is a bad thing, See if you can find some way of displaying a totaly white pix, and have this full size filling the entire screen. If the side bars are still there this means the CRT's are burned and this is a perminate thing, The fix would be to change the CRT's mabe just the green and the red but they still run about $285.00 each. This was cause by having the set run in a format that DOES NOT fill the entire screen

How to enter service mode to resize grid.

Many a good set have been destroyed by stumbling around in the service menu. One wrong thing and boom no more Tv. But we'll try to help you here, turn the set off. hold both the volume down and chanel down on the front of the set. hold them both in till the set turns on Then from this menu go to geomatry and you should be able to adjust from there , and for Gods sakes write down the values before you change them so you have a refrance point should things go terribly wrong
