Right click on your desktop
Click Properties
Click on the Settings Tab
It will say resolution with a sliding bar, you can move that around untill you find the right aspect ratio. Try 1024x768..

Hope that helps let me know :)

Why cant I get it off of wide screen? Everyone's head are cut off and can not read subtitles at bottom.


the aspect ratio is the picture size control
when you select aspect ratio you have to move with the arrows to get the size that fits the panel the best - go ok then exit to save the setting
if that doesn't work the the tv will need attention in a repair shop

Remote tv what is aspect button


Aspect I would guess adjusts your "Aspect Ratio", the shape/proportions of the image on your screen. Commonly a choice between 16:9 and 4:3.

27 inch Zenith TV Vertical too big


If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention

Why did my picture become big so I can not see the sideline information


Press the RATIO button repeatedly to select the desired picture format. You can also adjust Aspect Ratio in the OPTION menu.
  1. Set By Program. Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source’s image. (4:3 → 4:3, 16:9 → 16:9)
  2. 4:3. Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio, with gray bars appearing at both the left and right sides.
  3. 16:9. Choose 16:9 when you want to adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
  4. Horizon. Choose Horizon when you want to adjust the picture in a non-linear proportion, that is, more enlarged at both sides, to create a panorama view.
  5. Zoom 1. Choose Zoom 1 when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  6. Zoom 2. Choose Zoom 2 when you want the picture to be altered, both horizontally extended and vertically cropped. The picture taking a halfway trade off between alteration and screen coverage.
  7. Cinema Zoom. Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. Note: When enlarging or reducing the picture, the image may become distorted. You can adjust the enlarge proportion of Cinema Zoom using D / E button. The adjustment range is 1~16.

Help needed to adjust the picture size.


I can only suggest that you read the manuel it should give you guidelines for this problem .. if you do not have the manuel you may be able to download one in PDF form from the manufacturers .
The other slight possibility is if the projection unit is a rear free standing type it may have been pushed closer to the screen some how perhaps during a furniture reshuffle I have had this happen before and people dont think of it untill the engineer ask's ? .. regards Vortash

You need a video card that will adjust the resolution to the proper proportion. The closest I can get to a good aspect ratio is 1152 x 864.

Make sure the video device is set properly formats and ratios. If that is not the problem then there is an issue with the allignment and you should have it professionally adjusted. Sometimes with age service settings get out of proportion with the dimming of the bulbs.
