A simple question - My new 42" LG tv is fine -

You should be able to change the aspect ratio to fit the size of your screen. This will be the 16:9 4:3 16:10 settings.

You can access these by going to MENU---> PICTURE -----> Select ratio that works----> exit out and watch TV.

IF this will not fix it you need to look into the signals being fed to the TV as sometimes they can have a funny effect on the output picture. Some cable boxes will alter the picture and then it won't come out right on the TV. If it is all inputs doing this tho then changing just the Aspect ratio on the TV should solve the problem.

Picture is too big, No remote to change size. Can i change the size from the front of the television?

Sorry, no. The only thing you can change is the color balance on your tv. Unless you can locate a "menu" button on the external of the tv this will be the only way to adjust picture size is within the menu.

Thank you!

Picture too big tops of heads mjssing

Press the hd zoom # button or format/aspect button on your cable box/satellite box remote to adjust picture size. If that doesn't work try the below troubleshooting steps.

First make sure that your television is on the right input. i.e your cable box might be connected with both a coaxial cable and a component or hdmi cable. You might be on the input for the coaxial cable by mistake. Next check the resolution of your cable box and make sure it matches what your television can display. For example you should not have your cable box set at 1080i if this is a 720p television. Next make sure it is formatted for a 16:9 television under its (the cable box's) set up menu. Try pressing the wide/view mode/aspect/format button on your television's remote to adjust picture size.

I think my kids have pushed a button and the screen is got borders on the side and picture condenssed

If you have cable or satellite and a cable box or satellite box it is probably its remote. Look for the hd zoom # button or format button or aspect button to change the picture size.

Someone may have also changed the input on the television. Your cable or satellite box might be connected to two different inputs on your television so you have to make sure the right television input has been chosen with the television remote.

There should be a zoom, view mode, aspect or etc button or setting on your television that adjusts picture size.

Some television programs just broadcast like that and there is nothing you can do while that particular program is on to increase the picture size.

Lg 37lc2d problem with a loss of image on the sides, the image is bigger than the to fix?Only with digital signal

Look on your remote for a button that might say "picture size" or 'format". This button should scroll through the choices of picture size. If there is not one on the remote, then you will need to look in "Set up" in the User Menu and find a similar category to change the size.

Picture too large

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
Some Motorola Cable receivers need to be set up in the menu to go to a wide screen or zoom mode when an analog signal is detected. There may be a format button on the remote.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.
