    It is about 4 years old. and is looks like it is in a zoom of what is on the TV I will try to post a picture of the tv when I get back to town

    I had the same problem which was expanded width,and the horizontal controls do not work in the service menu. the fix is to change N401 ic pak part # in TDA8350Q, and then the horizontal controls in the service menu will work.I know, its the vertical chip,and i did not believe it either,but just do it. signed diamond tv. be careful in the service menu,cause as you know you can really mess the tv up. To get into the service menu,press volume all the way down,and the press the mute button on the remote and the menu button on the tv at the same time.

Can I know your TV's company and your purchase date. As earlier all Tv's are a bit overscanned but for recent ones like LCD the problem is rectified.

How much wider are we talking about? It is normal for all TV's to be a bit overscanned anyway.

Making pcture wider


Find the Aspect ratio button on the TV remote. Press it a number of times to cycle through the options. Stop when the picture is the shape you want.

Have a read of your TV manual. Stuff like this is detailed in there.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.


Hello
You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.
OK.

The picture is wider than the screen so the edges are cut off.


The tv is most likely in a zoom mode, go to the menu screen and look for the picture options.

The picture is wider then the screen on my rear projection tv


Are you using a cable box? Do you have aspect settings on your remote? Comcast cable boxes have a hd zoom button. This will push the sides of the picture out

Picture has widened


There are alot of things that can cause this. In my experience the most likley culprit in an older TV is that an electrolytic capacitor in the horizontal circuit has gone bad due to heat. You will need to locate the horizontal section and check each cap. especially those near a heat source like a transistor or IC on a heat sync. Since TV's have dangerous lethal voltages I would only recommend doing this if you have experience and take the usual industry accepted percautions.

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,

Widescreen


Unfortunately, a cinema screen is even wider than a widescreen TV. Because of this (in order to keep the original aspect ratio), even with a widescreen TV you still end up with the black bars top and bottom.

Check the aspect ratio of the DVD (Should be printed on the back of the case somewhere).

Unless it says 1.85:1 or 16:9 Anamorphic, you will get the black bars. (Many films on DVD are 2.35:1 or even wider!)

Have you got any different picture modes on your TV. I've got a Toshiba and it has something called 'cinema mode' which does eliminate the bars. Unfortunately it does it by zooming in on the picture slightly, so you loose a bit off the side of the picture and the image does get a little grainier.

Hope this helps.
