Edges of picture being cut off LG 37LG30 LCD TV

No matter what aspect ratio I use, my screen is cutting off the edges of the picture.  I have tried switching inputs (from antenna to cable) and have used all of the aspect ratios.  Is there some special setting that will not cut off the edges, or is this a cable box problem and not a tv problem?

Yes, it is possible the settings from your cable box maybe set to the wrong ratio eg:letterbox. Depending on what type of box you have, look in the cable box menu for a settings option, then change the aspect ratio to a different format.

How do I get the proper aspect ratio on my LCD TV?


What is your picture source? If it is a cable box or a satellite receiver the pix format can be limited or adjusted there, not in your TV.

The picture is outside the edges of the TV


It's probably an issue of the "Aspect" or the "Screen Mode" you're in. I'm no TV repair expert, but if you look in your Main Menu for "Screen Mode" or even your remote might have a button labeled "Asp" or "Aspect" or "Mode"....or even "Wide" (which when pressed repeatedly will cycle through the most common 4 screen modes = Wide, Screen Fit, Zoom, 4:3.) The last one refers to the ratio aspect, but depending on your TV, they could be named differently.
Given your description, it seems you're in "Zoom" mode, since it's cutting off the edges of the picture. Put it on a station like CNN, which has a streaming ticker at the bottom and cycle through the options you have until you find the one you prefer. (Note: you should also be able to set this in your Main Menu somewhere as your preferred view, but some shows and movies might come through as full screen or 'Letterbox' regardless of your preference.
One final observation I've found on several units is that the remote button that's in the bottom right-hand corner (which may not be labeled as such) is the default location for your aspect selections. Push it and see what happens.
Good luck!

Picture is being cut off at edges eg, Can't read all the written strips on screen.Titles on the edge of screen are cut off


From what you describe your source material is 4:3 aspect ratio but you have the screen set to 16:9 zoom.
You need to goto your picture settings and find the automatic picture option and use that.
This will stretch the screen correctly without cutting of the edges.

Cannot change aspect ratio when im playing a game it cuts off part of the screen


Normal aspect ratio is 4:3, and the wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you play a game meant for 4:3 and you change the TVs aspect ratio to 16:9; part of the picture will be cut off. It is not the fault of the TV.

LG 47'' LCD HDTV 120Hz - Incorrect Picture Width


I just had this problem and got it solved. The issue is that your cable box is likely set to the wrong aspect ratio, so your tv will not be able to display the picture properly without this setting changed. On my cable box(Pace), you need to turn the power off to the cable box using the remote. Then hit the menu button on the remote and a new menu will appear on the screen. Change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and you should be all set. Hope this works for you too.

Picture is cutting off top of subjects head. Can't see wording at bottom on screen


The aspect ratio is not set up right. It is a menu thing and you will have to make the change on screen with your remote. Find the list for the picture and go through the menu, look for aspect ratio or screen size.

How do I adjust the screens vertical height becausee some of the printing is below the frame?


You are in the wrong aspect ratio, either press the ratio button on the remote control (if you have this type), or go into the main menu & select the picture mode, then toggle over to aspect & adjust for a different size of picture. It looks like you are currently in the zoom size
