Question about Sylvania 6420FB 20" TV

1 Answer

The Picture is too big for the tv screen

For some reason the picture of my tv extends beyond the screen. If for example espn were on, I would be unable to see the score at the top of the screen. So I guess it would be about one inch of the picture is lost, most noticably from the top.

I got the TV on Christmas 2006 and I often times leave it on all night, but other than that I don't do anything to that could really be considered damaging. Could leaving it on be what is causing the problem, and if so, can it be fixed without costing me a lot of money?

    My picture looks like it's been zoomed in on. I can't see subtitles or tops of peoples heads. How do I get the picture to fit on my 32" screen. I don't know why this suddenly started happening.

Try your format button... or your wide/size button... they're all a bit different but they all have different screen size capabilities.

hope this helps

I have a Sylvania Model No. SST4273 TV manufactured in 2003. For a couple years now I've noticed that I can't see the sides of many broadcasts - text extends to the left and right beyond my screen.


If there's a setting that will show the whole picture, it's in the Menu under Picture:

1)Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears on the TV screen.
2)Press the VOL(ume)  button so that "PICTURE" is selected.
3)Select the feature you wish to adjust with the CH(annel)  or  button and adjust it with the VOL(ume)  or  button.

JUST PURCHASED A 60 INCH DLP TELEVISION MOST TV CHANNELS ARE NOT FULL SCREEN.... WHAT STEPS DO I TAKE TO INLARGE THE PICTURE TO FIT THE 60 INCH SCREEN ?


Channels that transmit in 480 or 720 may not fill the screen. You can use the Aspect or Zoom button or feature to expand those channels to fill the screen but there may be some stretching in one direction or parts of the picture may extend beyond the edge of the TV. Some TVs have a "justified" setting that will not distort the center of the picture and just stretches the corners. Look in your manual for Picture Size, Aspect, or Zoom for details about your TV.

Picture Problems!!! TOSHIBA TP55D80 REAR PROJECTION TV.


Look up your user manual, it sounds like your zoom feature has been activated to the max. I have a Zenith backlit LCD TV and it has a zoom feature you control from your remote. You could open up your on screen menu and find the place to reset the TV to factory settings that should clear up the problem.

Picture and text extend beyond screen


Your tv needs to be put into service mode with the original Sony remote control and then set the vertical\horizontal size parameter to the correct values and then burn the new settings to memory
Google " sony tv service mode " and you should find the procedure. Good Luck! Write back if you have problems.

PANASONIC 36" TAU --- NEED HELP


Sounds terminal. Companies build things with "planned obsolescence" in mind. In other words. You buy a TV today, and the warranty says it's good for 4 years. 4 years and 3 months later, it dies.

I hope someone else can help you.
Good Luck!

The picture is round


No my freind, im afraid that you have bad waveshaper capacitors in the vertical sweep circuit in your TV set. This is not an adjustment. you should have a pro assist you with the repair of this set as it is dangerous because of the high voltage inside these sets.
