If you are watching cable or satelite, you need to change the screen format output from the source to make sure it matches with the TV

Not all TV programs are broadcast in 1080. When you use zoom or stretch on a program in 720 or 480 and a 1080 program is viewed you have to go back and take off zoom and stretch to get a correct picture.

I have a 52 inch SONY Bravia that has been stuck in zoom mode since last night. iI am unable to see the writing and/or tops of heads on top of screen. any help available?


Press the "WIDE" button on the TV remote a few times to change the TV wide mode settings until you get it to "FULL". If that does not fix it, look on your Cable box remote for an "Aspect" or "Format" button and press it a few times. I hope this helps.

Image does not position well


Your Sony TV remote has a "WIDE" button. Press this a few times in a row some that you understand it's operation. Then pick a mode (I would recommend "FULL") that fits your needs. I hope this helps.

Image on 'normal' setting isn't using full height of tv screen.


What you will need to do is grab your remote that came with the tv - click "Menu">select "Settings">go down to "Screen" and make sure that:

1. Wide Mode reads "Full"
2. Auto Wide reads "On"
3. Display Area reads "Full Pixel"

Hope that helps.

Samsung 52 Inch LCD 120hz. 3 inch wide vertical line on screen


This is a problem with the LCD panel. If the tv is out of warranty, I would call Samsung and see if they will pay for the panel and you pay for the labor. The panel is not cost effective to repair. If Samsung will not do anything you will need to buy a new tv.
