Question about Televison & Video
Recently, our TV picture started looking stretched and too big for the screen. The people look squashed and words are cut off on the sides. I checked the format settings, and it is set to "standard", which is the default setting. There is a "stretch" option, but it is not on. Is there anything else we can do to get the picture to fit the screen, or does it need a new part?
I would need more information for your tv however it sound like you may end up needing to replace the main board.

Normallly, if the format button on the remote 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 when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

Try downloading the service manual and go through the calibration excercise. There's also some additional controls behind the right front speaker.

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.

The format of what you are watching plays a major part in whether all of the screen is used. If the program is 4:3 the screen will remain pretty much square. 16: 9 would be the most desirable for filling all the area. Go ahead and acquire a manual, they're not much...accordianman
