How do i fix a too wide picture on my sony kdl40ex500?

Why are you using 4:3 letterbox? It might be the default aspect ratio but widescreen tvs should be set to 16:9 aspect ratio.

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered

The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view

you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

My picture was like 1380x640 but now its 680x480 and i cant play my xbox because the picture is messed up how do i change this... ive tried going into setting and nothing works..

Have you tried adjusting the aspect ratio by pressing the ZOOM button. There you can select Normal, Wide, Zoom, and Cinema modes. Normal mode: selects the aspect ratio that matches the source's aspect ratio.

If this doesn't work, try power-cycling the TV by turning it off, unplugging it & leaving it unplugged for a few minutes. Then plug it back in, turn it on. You can also restore factory default settings.

Press MENU.
Press LEFT or RIGHT to select SETUP, then press DOWN to open the SETUP menu.
Press UP or DOWN to select Restore Default, then press RIGHT or Enter.
When a message asks if you want to restore factory settings, select YES to restore the settings, or select NO to exit without restoring settings.

I think my kids have pushed a button and the screen is got borders on the side and picture condenssed

If you have cable or satellite and a cable box or satellite box it is probably its remote. Look for the hd zoom # button or format button or aspect button to change the picture size.

Someone may have also changed the input on the television. Your cable or satellite box might be connected to two different inputs on your television so you have to make sure the right television input has been chosen with the television remote.

There should be a zoom, view mode, aspect or etc button or setting on your television that adjusts picture size.

Some television programs just broadcast like that and there is nothing you can do while that particular program is on to increase the picture size.

How to change the picture mode

If you looking to change aspect ratio, look for the 'FORMAT', 'ASPECT', 'ZOOM' button on the remote control.

The picture does not fit the screen. The top and bottom of the picture go beyond the screen

you may need to adjust the aspect ratio of the picture, there is typically an "aspect" button on the remote that will adjust the picture from widescreen, super widescreen 16:9 ratio and sometimes you can zoom in. try that

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

Aspect Function Not Working

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
