How to widen my curtis 42 inch flat sreen top and bottom


Some TV's have a zoom function others do not. The program you're watching controls whether the top and bottom of the screen have black bars and is not the fault of the TV. Widening the picture cuts off a lot of the viewable picture and distorts the image. Circles tend to be oval. If your TV has a zoom function, use it.

Why does the screen have Black Border around the picture , picture distorted?


There are connectors and circuitry that control the vertical and horizontal picture image generation that need to be at the edges of the screen. The border simply covers these connectors and circuitry so the user cannot see it. Newer models of flat panel TV's solve this problem better to get more picture real-estate to the user. Flat panel TV's are not like the original CRT (cathode-ray) TV's of the past that had borders to conceal a non-linear distortion that occurred at the edges.

Could you please tell me how to reset my tv? I have a blue screen


What should I do if my TV screen turned black, blue, or gray? print.png Print try this.

Proceed with the troubleshooting steps below only if you're seeing:
  • Black, blue, or gray screen
  • "No Signal" message without the DIRECTV logo
Note: If your TV screen appears "frozen" or you're seeing wavy lines or overlapping images, try this.
Solution 1: Check that your TV is set on the right input
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">Turn your TV and receiver off and back on.
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number2_icon.png">Using your DIRECTV remote control, press the TV Input button to cycle through TV inputs (Component, HDMI, etc) until you see a picture. If nothing happens when you press the button, try programming your DIRECTV remote to control your TV Input and try again.

Note: You can also try changing the TV Input using your TV remote.

Still not seeing a clear picture?
Continue to Solution 2.

[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/support/answer_center/tech_faq_images/img_screen_off_4.jpg">
Solution 2: Reset Your Receiver
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">On some DIRECTV receivers there is a red reset button located inside the access card door on the front panel. Press it, then wait for your receiver to reboot.

Note: If you cannot locate the red reset button or your receiver does not have one, unplug the receiver's power cord from the electrical outlet, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Then press the Power button on the front panel of your receiver and wait for your receiver to reboot.

Widen border on Toshiba lap top


Widen border on what? A document, if so go into page setup. If you're talking about the whole screen, go into the Desktop under the Control Panel and change the screen resolution.

Can i challenge the color of the sidebars of mi plasma tv, from gray to black?


No you do not want black even if it could be changed which it cannot.

The problem with black (and why it is not used) is after prolonged use with a black border it will BURN that image into both sides of the screen unit--you will be able to see it.

Screen has borders when watching tv


This is common issue of the channels that use 4:3 format while TV is designed for 16:9. To get it disappear, you just go to picture option, choose WIDE FIT, this fuction will widen the picture to whole screen. Of course, you have to accept the picture is blur a bit.
