Question about ViewSonic N3735W 37 in. LCD TV

2 Answers

I cannot get my cable to show in full screen. I have Time Warner HD service. Im hooked up right, but my picture does not use the whole 37" screen. When I change my picture width, I get No Scale, Full, Normal, and Zoom. The first three are exactly the same, Zoom will zoom the picture in full screen, but it cuts off part of the bottom and top of the picture. How do I fit my picture to full screen without cutting part of the picture out?

    My friend has a 57" HDTV and his service is full screen, so It is possible.

For HD you have to have a square screen
Sorry to disagree; the standard screen has an aspect ratio of 4:3, this is far more 'square' than the 16:9 (aka 'wide screen') which is standard for HDTV. If you are on cable or satellite service, you may well have to pay extra to have the whole of your screen available for viewing.
That is why only 'over the air' broadcasts are absolutely affected by the change from analog to digital next February but other sources do not have to change over to the new standard and the 4:3 sets will work fine without any extra box until those sources decide to 'go digital.'

You can't. I have the same problem but it is impossible. For HD you have to have a square screen, so the picture only uses the biggest square it can get. For regular cable, it is streamed at a ratio, so tough luck.

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

unhook 1 tv at a time leaving 2 tvs each time hooked up. try every combanation Possable to see if it's a tv problem or if when you have all 3 tvs hooked it makes the signal weak. this can happen cable guys say no but it can been there done that. if 2 works and 1 dont in every combanation the problem is in the cable system. most cable guys check the signal outside. with the splitter block unhooked. this gives a false reading.

Not getting full pic on certain channels


I've seen this problem before. Try to adjust the horizontal settings in the tv. you should be able to adjust the picture up just a bit and it will get rid of the lines. also if you are hooked up thru component or hdmi you should be able to press the # button on your time warner remote to fill the screen. Hope this helps.

Someone was messing around with our settings yesterday and now the picture is not full screen. How can we get the picture to fill the screen?


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.

HD cable question


It sounds like you dont have the right HD box. When connecting HD you will use an HDMI cable or a component cable consisting of 5 cable total 3 for video two for audio. Coax cable is not used to connect HD to your TV / Monitor.
