Check your remote, there should be a "ZOOM" feature that allows you to change the size of the picture. It should be at the bottom of the remote.

Yes hello I've got a 5.7ltrgen3 Holden commodore underneath the transmission there's a small round hole you can see the the big round wheel underneath that hole big wheel has teeth on it just want to know...

Yes, this is normal. The big wheel you are seeing is called the flywheel. The teeth that you can see are what the starter motor engage to turn the motor over. The hole is simply an inspection hole. From the factory there would have been a rubber plug in the hole, but if it has gone missing it is no worry.

Screen size is to big

On the TV remote look for a button that says Picture size, Aspect or Ratio and press on the button until you get the wide normal size.
Some cable TV remotes have the same functions, and you may need to check or call your cable TV company.

Best of luck

Screen to big cant c words how do i adjust

if you are using a cable box you must go to settings on your cable box and zoom out there is an option not sure where its located on which cable box your using . If the tv is hooked directly to the cable outlet itself its a menu option on your tv there is a zoom option and some remotes also have a zoom botton.

the cable remote has a zoom feature in the settings. the zoom setting got turned on somehow. This feature overrides the picture size settings on the tv.
so, not a tv problem at all, but easily missed.

Cant delete pitcure at Nokia 1100

All you need to do is, just replace those pictures....
You can do this thing in two ways:
1) If you have some picture messages in your Inbox(message), just open them and then go to options and then save that over the unwanted pic.
2) If you don't have any pic. mssg in your inbox, ask somebody else to send it on your no., and then apply the same approach!

Good luck!

Good Day, hobbie000;
First, make sure all solder connections are not bridged, all cables are properly seated, check LED's. Secondly, call an Authorized Service CEnter and get an expert to repair the TV.
