Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV
I have a vw42 l flat screen vizio t.v. we have had it for several months. recently the picture on it is too big for the screen. so i cant see any of the writing on the bottom of the screen. like for instance, when who want to be a millionaire is on, i can only see the first 2 answers and not the bottom ones. can you please help me as it is driving me nuts and i cant find my owners manual i have a vizio 32" screen tv. All of a sudden the picture is too large for the screen. Help!
The other poster was right, there is a zoom button on my CABLE REMOTE and once I pressed that my problem was solved. It's funny none of the techs knew that, at either Vizio or Comcast.
Hope this helps.

Ah - THANK YOU. I was watching the AFC Championship game and the picture was way too big on all channels. I unplugged, reset factory defaults, you name it - and nothing worked. UNTIL I saw the entry above about an HD Zoom function on the CABLE remote. Turns out I have that, too, and my cat likely stepped on it. Pushing it returned order and sanity to my TV world!!

It sounds like you have the zoom on. try pressing the 'wide' button on your remote to switch to a different mode.

I found the solution on my Dish Network remote. Went to MENU, SETTINGS, then SCREEN ADJUSTMENTS. Under the HDTV button I changed the Aspect Ratio. I can see the stats for the World Series noe.

My remote for Dish TV doesn't have a Zoom button, but there is one called Format. We were unable to see scores in the top left of some games and the scrolling news at the bottom on others. I pushed that button a few times and it fixed my problem. This was a recent issue with me, so I must have accidentally hit it when trying to change a channel by number entry. YAY!

I have spent a week messing with the controls on my tv trying to make the picture fit. My problem was not the tv, it was the DVR ASPECT button. Thank you sooooo much. Now I can see the scores on the football games today.

SOURCE: the picture on my tv is too big
Take the remote for the TV...not the cable.
They usually have a RESET button. Go through setting the TV back to factory settings. This usually corrects this problem.
It did for us today! john
