What kind of monitor? They can all be adjusted for width and height by using the buttons along the bottom of the screen. Often it can be confusing and a bit of a pain but look under the monitor menu for 2 sets of icons that look like 2 boxes on top of each other both horizontal and vertical. That is how you adjust it.

Change your screen resolution to the highest setting first, in control panel, appearance/ themes. Next Push smart button on bottom right of monitor. Cinema mode should be highlighted hit autoset on monitor. Next hit the FUN button and highlight the 4:3 screen setting. This will expand your image to fit the screen without giving it that stretched and distorted appearance.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Screen is stretching on each end. Vizio 32 inch. The picture is stretched on each end. The picture looks real weird and it almost makes you dizzy when you look at it.


Sounds like the display is in a mode which is sometimes called "Horizon", where they seek to fill the entire 16:9 screen with an image which is originally 4:3 by leaving the center of the image mostly alone and stretching the ends out horizontally. If your remote control has an "Aspect" button you might try pushing that a few times to cycle through the various settings.

The positioning of my desktop's imageis still distorted despite running the easy tune display wizard and my using the auto tune keys on the side of the monitor.


Use the manual methods on your monitor (horizontal and vertical size and position), not the auto tune and see if you can get it to improve.

Try using a different desktop picture as well.

Right click on the desktop where there are no icons, and change the picture. Also, play with Stretch/Center/Tile - stretch will distort a file if it doesn't exactly match your screen settings.

Faulty Lens?


Dear Swetnam

This is a internal circuit problem/defect and cannot be done on our own, so u should take it to SONY service centre. Avoid keeping the camera near hot temperatures zone. Sony is not tolerant to many physical factors.

Distorted Picture


This is a defective CCD being replaced at no charge by Canon. It's nothing you did but a part defective from the factory. Go here for details: http://www.usa.canon.com:80/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=223&modelid=8044&keycode=2112&id=29819

Oblong pictures


The issue here is that you have a low resolution picture and a high resolution display. Windows is "stretching" the smaller, low resolution picture so that it will fit across the larger area, thus distorting it. Right click on the desktop and select properties. Go to the Desktop tab. There should be an item there for position. Is it set to Stretch? If it is, then this is causing the problem. Set it to center, and it should appear fine. If you want to keep this from happening: 1) User higher resolution pictures. 2) Turn down the resolution on your screen (this can be done from the Settings tab of display properties).
