The picture can be stretched from side to side but the top and bottom always have a large margin. Is there a way to stretch the top and bottom of the picture?

Are we talking about a signal from a dvd player? Possibly an upconverting dvd player. This is a function of the player. Try pan and scan vs letter box setting in thee dvd video setup menu. Your describing letter box. If the image is missing from the side its called side curtain. Scaling on the TV affects the curtain, but not letter box.

Hello.
It does not look like there is something wrong with electronics in your TV. Most likely settings for picture are got messed up. It could be TV settings or source (cable box, etc. settings).
Using remote control of your TV find picture settings in menu and make sure it set to "standard" instead of "zoom", "stretch", "wide" etc. You might need to do the same with cable/satellite box menu. Some devices have button "picture" or "format" on remote control for this purpose.
You can also connect DVD player first and see if picture is stretched as well to determine if it is TV settings are wrong or it is outside of TV set.
Regards.
Russ.

PICTURE TO BIG AT THE SCREEN.CAN NOT SEE THE PICTERS MARGIN AT THE SCREEN.HOW TO ADJUST(REDUCING PICTURE SIZE ON SCREEN)?


1) Power your wide-screen TV on and turn to a channel that is displayed with bars on the side. You need to leave this channel on to ensure you have properly adjusted your wide-screen TV.

2)
Find in your TVs settings where you can "stretch" the picture. Refer to your wide-screen TVs owner's manual for specific instructions. Some TVs may not refer to this adjustment as "stretch." You will be able to find all the information your looking for in the owners manual.

3) Adjust settings back to normal if you want to watch a program shown in 16:9 format. Keeping the screen "stretched" will cause programs shown in 16:9 format appear zoomed in, making the picture look really different.

I cant keep the picture at full screen fom channel to channel


The reason for this is that the incoming signal is not always the same. Stations broadcast in different formats from 480i to 1080. If the bars top and bottom or side to side bother you then you'll have to stretch the picture (try different modes) to keep the picture screen full.

Why do we have black bars on top and bottom of screen


Originally when 16:9 TVs were produced movies were being shot in 16:9 so that you had a full screen. Now they are being shot in 14:9 as it gives you a more cinematic experience. This is due to the fact that colours look more vibrant when they are placed against a colourless/lightless surface (such as a black panel) as for the bars on the side of the screen LuciferStarr is correct; it depends on the format in which the video was originally produced. For example most older television shows are still shown in 4:3 but newer shows and movies are produced in the widescreen format.

Display is off-center


Try the Auto adjust button on the monitor buttons first.
If the entire picture of the computer is showing you can try to shift and stretch the picture through the menu button.
