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

I have a sony bravi xbr ;the picture is sooo big i can't read the subtitles . i tried ti fix it ( from the instruction manual ) but nothing work . thank you !

Hi: Check you screens format button to change screen sizes, this button may also be labeled Aspect. Seems you are in ZOOM Mode, these buttons can also be found on cable boxes remote as well try pushing them to see if screen size change. If this does'nt help then do this with the TV in off posistion. Press the Display key on your remote, Then the Five key, then the Vol up key, then press power key. This will turn set on in service mode, you will see service options do not do anything but press the number 8 on remote and hit enter. This will rest tv to factory settings. All video setups and parameters you have set in user menu will result back to factory and will need to be redone. TV should shut down on its own and come back on on channel 3.

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.

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
