RCA hads a problem with it's sets switching back and forth on their own. This is covered under warranty. Some say first turn off the autoformat feature in Customer Menu, if this doesn't work, a board need to be replaced. I would contact Manufacturer and ask is under warranty. RCA/GE same !

How do I make it go full screen


There is going to be a setting in your television menu under display or video. You will have multiple choices and the most effective is automatically select but the second choice would be Cinerama.

Peoples heads are cut off on reg tv not in hd


Since your tv is cutting the heads off durring regular or analog signal but not high deffinition sounds to me like you have to set the aspect ratio different or such as going to your picture format from the main screen. Play with the settings from zoom, full screen, no overscan, cinerama and see if this helps.

There are borders on left and right of screen


1 solution that worked on my TV was to hit the format button on my controller and it gives me the option to do full,normal, cinerama, or zoom. These options stretch shrink or blow up the looks of the screen of what you are watching. I usually use full, I may get a few programs that are only half screen whether letterbox or where there is black bars on left and right but not many.. It may be the difference too between digital signal and analog signal.. If you do not have a format button go to your menu page and picture setup, see if you have any of the options of what I mentioned the full, normal, cinerama, and zoom.. Hope this helps you out.

First of all the adapters always give headaches with these TV's for some reason. Try changing to 16:9 instead of Cinerama. I do this by using the direction buttons on the remote left and right change this. Hope this info helps.

Here is one possible solution:

1. Go back there and get the remote for the RCA.
2. Towards the bottom right you'll see a "FORMAT" button. Press it and look at the screen each time.
3. This changes the screen format between Cinerama, 16:9, 4:3, and all the Zoom formats.
4. ONE of those should be what you're looking for...


Is there a way to reset this TV back to factory defaults through the menu?Try that. Otherwise it is a more serious problem. Call RCA to see if they can help.
