LG 47'' LCD HDTV 120Hz - Incorrect Picture Width

I just had this problem and got it solved. The issue is that your cable box is likely set to the wrong aspect ratio, so your tv will not be able to display the picture properly without this setting changed. On my cable box(Pace), you need to turn the power off to the cable box using the remote. Then hit the menu button on the remote and a new menu will appear on the screen. Change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and you should be all set. Hope this works for you too.

Picture is cutting off top of subjects head. Can't see wording at bottom on screen

The aspect ratio is not set up right. It is a menu thing and you will have to make the change on screen with your remote. Find the list for the picture and go through the menu, look for aspect ratio or screen size.

Part of the picture is being cut off, how do i

Just called Sony about this same problem...taking your CABLE BOX remote, push the # key on the bottom right of the remote (it also says HD Zoom on mine). You can cycle through 4 or 5 zoom options...make sure you are on an HD channel to see the changes. :)

Top and bottom of picture are cut off

Sounds like you may have the aspect ratio setting wrong,look for a button labeled aspect,ratio,wide any of these on your remote then press multiple times until you get the picture formatted the way you like it.If you have a satellite receiver or a digital cable box they also contain an aspect ratio adjustment in their menu system so you may need to check there also. Good luck !

You need to adjust the aspect ratio, look for button on remote called 'ASPECT', 'ZOOM', or 'SIZE'.

The bottom and top of the picture are being cut off

Check your remote for a "zoom" or "picture size" button. Press this button to adjust the size until everything fits back on the screen.

Picture is cut off

Try setting the set to 4.3 expanded on the aspect ratio. If that don't work try the other aspect ratio settings. That should make the picture fit the screen.
