Sounds like you have it in the 4x3 format where it is closed on both sides several inches.

If it has a Aspect button on the remote or the set use that. Note that some cable or sat boxes will format some channels in this format, cannot do nothing with that.

Unless you get an original remote you do not have much of chance to change the format, a few sets have a button or you can enter the menu manually but not many.

Picture size


I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but:
1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio.
2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays.
NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options.
4:3 Programming
[Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen.
[Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off.
[Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal.
16:9 Programming
[Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is.
[Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation.
[Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation

Look for a button on the remote that says either P-Size, Aspect, View Mode, Zoom or Ratio. Press the button on the remote to change the size to Stretch, Full etc..

Element LCD 32" TV- expand the screen


You will need the original remote to operate the different screen modes.
My TV has the same problem, without that silly special button on the remote, I'm not able to change the screen size without it.
I google "FLX3210 remote", 3 web sites are selling it for less than $45.
I hope I answered your question correctly. Please rate me

On your remote there should be a button that says "Aspect" or "Pic Size". Press thisuntil the video fills the screen. If you do not have the remote of don't have the original remote, this setting can be found by preesing the menu button on the tv, go down to video settings and it should be listed under "Aspect Ratio", change it untill the video fills the screen.

Panasonic TV 50 inch plasma


Dear RyanVa21;
Try changing the picture size with your set's remote, press the aspect ratio button. The remote must be the original Panasonic remote.
Please let me know if that did it.

Thanks!
