    I just spoke to a repair man who said that one of my kids may have pushed a button. He suggested unplugging the TV from the wall altogether and leaving it unplugged for at least 10 hours, then plug it back in and see if the tv reset itself. If it doesnt he will come out to look at it and I will tell you what he says. I am going to try it tonight.

Have you tried resizing it with the button again ?
some channels just will not look as good in a zoom or aspect ratio when they are older recorded movies that are not digital recorded or in HD ( high definition )

    have you tried to unplug the set from the wall for a few min. ?

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    I just seen your other post , do you still have the concaved screen also ? because this is caused from the convergence IC's failing and or resistors on them .

    is this what happened to your tv set ?

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    if you can solder , then resoldering of the pins on the convergence IC's and or look for the protection fuses (looks like a tan discap capacitor) for the convergence IC's . the convergence IC's will be on the big heat sink on the main board ,

    when it was moved a solder connection could have came undone and just needs to be soldered again , and if it did it may have also burnt a protection fuse as well

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    if the pico fuses for the STK IC's are blown , then replacement of the IC's and checking of the resistor values on them will need to be done.

    the STK IC's are not exspensive but having a shop replace them is. $400 or more for a shop to replace the IC's AND pico fuses and or resistors if needed

  • jason Mar 06, 2009

    the STK IC's , pico fuses , resistors can be bought online or at a local electronic supply store

    you can cross reference you STK IC's here$$Search?OpenForm

    example of STK function

    hope my help has better served you and can be rewarded with a better rating , and if you need help in doing this repair , I will be happy to help

I have a samsung lcd 650 series tv and a dish network remote. I can use the remote to change channels and control power and volume to my TV. I cannot change the picture size and the picture on most...

We would be happy to help get that fixed. It sounds like you may be in the incorrect screen format. Press the * located below the number 7 on the DISH Network remote control. Cycle the formats to determine the screen format that fits best.

We hope that this fixes it for you. Thanks so much for choosing DISH Network!

Trying to change tv format on my dynex 32 LCD

You are looking for a picture size, format or screen size button on the remote control to solve the issue. If it connected to a HD cable or satellite box then they also have format or picture size settings.

I have a Samsung series 5 530 and the picture only recently is too big for the screen. also tried everything in the manual. Just started a few weeks ago.

The picture size may have been changed on the remote. Try the button that says pic size or something close to that. It must have been switched to a mode which zooms in the picture. That should fix it.

Model 51f59a hd widescreen aspect settings dont take and picture too big

I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.
