There are alot of things that can cause this. In my experience the most likley culprit in an older TV is that an electrolytic capacitor in the horizontal circuit has gone bad due to heat. You will need to locate the horizontal section and check each cap. especially those near a heat source like a transistor or IC on a heat sync. Since TV's have dangerous lethal voltages I would only recommend doing this if you have experience and take the usual industry accepted percautions.

How to widen my curtis 42 inch flat sreen top and bottom


Some TV's have a zoom function others do not. The program you're watching controls whether the top and bottom of the screen have black bars and is not the fault of the TV. Widening the picture cuts off a lot of the viewable picture and distorts the image. Circles tend to be oval. If your TV has a zoom function, use it.

Widescreen


Unfortunately, a cinema screen is even wider than a widescreen TV. Because of this (in order to keep the original aspect ratio), even with a widescreen TV you still end up with the black bars top and bottom.

Check the aspect ratio of the DVD (Should be printed on the back of the case somewhere).

Unless it says 1.85:1 or 16:9 Anamorphic, you will get the black bars. (Many films on DVD are 2.35:1 or even wider!)

Have you got any different picture modes on your TV. I've got a Toshiba and it has something called 'cinema mode' which does eliminate the bars. Unfortunately it does it by zooming in on the picture slightly, so you loose a bit off the side of the picture and the image does get a little grainier.

Hope this helps.

Picture is too large for the screen, horizontally.


No my friend, there is a problem with the width circuit, and this would be in the pincussion correction circuit of the TV set. There is alot of high voltage in this circuit, and if you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and call in a tech to service this for you. there is not any adjust ment that will fix this. Good Luck

My Picture is wider than the screen


How much wider are we talking about? It is normal for all TV's to be a bit overscanned anyway.
