Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV
The screen is stretched from left to right you can not see any of the display and it seems to curve in the middle.
SOURCE: 32" rca picture stretched
Before you fool around with this, it may be under warranty. Check that first. Second, does the picture stretch in both directions or just vertically? If just vertically is it more pronounced at the top?

You are describing normal operation. I have a Samsung with the 4:3 screen aspect ratio and deal with the same issues. With a program that is broadcast as HD I have the "letter box" pic. since this is needed to amintain the 16:9 ratio it is formatted in. Some programs come up as only filling part of the screen & at times I find the zoom mode less objectional to view. Even if you have a wide screen set you still deal with programs that are not in the 16:9 format. Perhaps eventually all programming will be in a consistent format, but for now we just have to put up with it. The good news is that your TV is not defective.

Try TvRepairKits.com. I just ordered one, I have that same model TV and it is the same problem. I will try to fix it myself as opposed to an expensive service call for repair.

one of three ways:
