Had the same problem....If you have a digital cable1.gif box through Comcast1.gif there is a setting on the box that will fix this problem.

Picture does not fit into 52 in as if there is a zoom on can't see writing at bottom of screen, for example basketball scores

You have to press the hd zoom# or format or wide (or etc.) button on your cable tv or satellite tv remote. If that isn't doing anything then you might have your cable box or satellite tv receiver set on the wrong resolution for your television. Your television's remote might also have a wide or format button on it that needs to be pressed. Also make sure your television is on the right input.

The picture is bigger than the screen... Picture is cut off and when I unscrewed the back of the tv I could see that the picture was showing perfect but it was to big for the screen... There's not a way to...

Have you tried hitting the format picture button on your remote control. Seems the picture is in zoom mode. If you have a cable box for HD Channels then look on the remote for a button (format) or Screen size.

Picture does not fit screen. People head is chooped off.

I have heard that using the directional buttons on the remote left or right changes the picture format. I believe you should also be able to go into the menu and change it there.

My tv zooms in and changes the format.

This is normal - you are zooming in on the picture. Most people use the zoom feature to "stretch" a widescreen movie so it will fit the screen.

Screen is to big

Either the TV or the cable/satellite receiver has Zoomed in to the image when parts of the picture are cut off. Look at both remotes for a Zoom feature or the onscreen menu's for any settings. Usually TV settings don't change on their own but cable/satellite receivers can receive updates and it may need to be reset afterwords, much like a PC.

Your TV set may have settings for picture size ratios but also if you have cable or sattelite service, they too may have these settings. Try both TV and cable remocons for proper adjustment

Projects picture bigger than screen..

This must be a duplicate, and since I'm not sure which one you'll be checking back with: Go into the menu and select picture settings and then advanced picture settings. I'm not sure on that model that you can manually change the aspect ratio from zoom to 16:9 or 4:3 ect... But select Auto Format and the TV will pre-select the correct format for viewing..... Any questions just let me know. Bill
