Question about Samsung TXF2899 28" TV

1 Answer

Picture bigger than screen

Picture appears to be "zoomed" in on all 4 sides. There is no zoom button, though this model does offer what is known as "extra view," which squeezes more picture (about an inch) into view, hence the 28" width. Kind of a "zoom out" feature, if you will. A couple of months ago the picture began suddenly popping into a zoom-like condition. Turning it off and on again quickly often corrected it, but this no longer works. This occurs regardless of input (cable, dvd, etc.) Thanks for any advice.

Re: Picture bigger than screen

This can be caused not enough high voltage going to the picture tube. If the picture seems to get larger and smaller depending on the brightness of the scene on the screen that is probably what it is. IF that is the problem, there isn't much a normal consumer can do.

How to resize picture on a magnavox mwc20t6

Look for a setting called Aspect Ratio. It will include options like 4:3, 16:9, Zoom 1, and Zoom 2. Then click through the options to select the correct one for your program. Usually older SD programs will use either 4:3 or Zoom 1, while HD programs will be set to 16x9 for Widescreen hi-def viewing. There should be a button on your remote labelled Aspect Ratio or Picture that can toggle through these image modes.

My tv screen is too wide horizontally. I can't see but what's in the middle of the picture. Do I need to purchase a new tv or is this something that can be fixed?

go into video set up and take tv out of zoom mode

it sounds like you have it set to zoom a standard definition signal and that will make picture become bigger than the screen and cut picture off

hope that helps

It appears that the image on the screen is zoomed in, but I can't figure out how to "undo" that. Thank you!

If the image on screen is zoomed both in vertical and horizontal direction, your TVs power regulator inside it is faulty. [Overvoltage]. If it is zoomed in vertical direction only, that is only the height of the picture is zoomed, you can adjust it with the remote control button directly on going through menu and get in to the function menu. Normally all TV remote has a special button marked as "Zoom" which on pressing it once the picture get zoomed, again another press the picture gets wide and again an another press picture will come to normal mode. You should select normal mode to retify the problem.

It sounds like you accidentally enabled a zoom feature or something similar.

Most remote controls should have a clearly labeled "zoom" button or a "picture size" option. If not, go into your TV's menu and look for something zoom related.

If this doesn't work, just go ahead and toy around in your TV's menu. I strongly suggest writing down the default settings so you can go back to them if you screw something up.

Good luck!
