Re: my Picture is wider than the screen

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.

Re: my Picture is wider than the screen

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

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

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.

Picture is only in middle of screen, top and bottom of screen is blacked out

If you are watching widescreen format movie or tv programming on a non-widescreen tv, that is how it will appear. The widescreen is a wider picture so to show it on a less wide screen, it has to shrink down to fit. and leave blank space top and botton.

If not, sorry.

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.

Xbox picture gets cut off on the sides

try fiddling with the tv menu. most tvs have the zoom function now and also the ratio function. try testing those configurations starting from the default. make sure you have the zoom function set at 0 before fiddling with the ratio aspect.

AKAI CFT2726 picture sides cut off.

If it is a picture tube type TV not a plasma or lcd try degausing the picture tube. I think Radio Shack carries degausers or find the plans for one on the net.

if you have an owners manual there is a special feature menu yu can go to that will fix how your picture fits on the screen. my tv was doing the same thing except it was the top and bottom until i played around with the remote and stumbled across the menu.

Picture is too large for the screen, horizontally.

No my friend, there is a problem with the width circuit, and this would be in the pincussion correction circuit of the TV set. There is alot of high voltage in this circuit, and if you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and call in a tech to service this for you. there is not any adjust ment that will fix this. Good Luck
