Re: the screen is cutting peoples heads off.

If you have the RCA remote there are a circular band of buttons with arrows pointing North, South, East and West. Or up, down and left and right. On the right side ( pointing East) it should say zoom. Click on the opposite arrow (west). This should change your aspect ratio to 4:3. This will have borders on the outside but it is the usual ratio for most channels.
I hope you have the remote because that is the only place I have discovered this feature so far. Forget about cinema and normal, that has more to do with the contrast of the image.

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.

Close captioning

Well lets try the simple things first, Go to the TVs menu using the original TV remote and find the icon or menu that says Captions, in that menu turn all the closed captions OFF. Second there is a button on the original TV remote that says format, push this till you get to a screen that says FULL in the upper left corner. That should resolve your problems, If closed caption still comes through then we need to know if this set is hooked directly to cable or goes through a cable box. It sound like you simply had the closed caption turned on and the screen in one of the zoom formats this TV provides
