Question about LG 42PC3DV 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Picture too big!!!

My picture is too big...all the time. No matter what setting it is on it's till too big. This has happened all of a sudden. 42 in LG plasma. As an example, peoples heads are chopped off. News channels with info lines on the bottom of screen cannot be seen. I'm at my wits end. Nothing in the manual addresses this problem. in menu options the "horizonal" option cannot be highlighted. Any suggestions/remedies??? Thanks in advance

Re: picture too big!!!

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: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. 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.

The picture on my 42 inch LCD Samsung doesn't fit the screen. I can't see the scores for baseball games. I've tried adjusting the picture, but nothing works. Any suggestions?

Check your display size. It sounds to me like you have it set on ZOOM. On your remote there should be a button labeled PICTURE. Scroll through the setting till you see 16x9 and set it to this. Keep in mind that some commercials and programs are not filmed in widescreen so the picture will be in the 4.3 aspect ratio, "square"
