Re: zoomed in picture

Check your aspect ratio setting. You may have it on Zoom 1 or Zoom 2 and then the picture will be stretched out and you won't see the bottom.

Trying to watch a foreign film with subtitles (DVD). The subtitles are getting cut off at the bottom of the screen. TV is on full screen format (not Zoom). We tried moving the picture up the screen, but...

First, try the "Aspect Ratio" button on the remote. If none of the settings remedy the problem, try accessing the menu of the DVD player to ensure that it is set to 16:9 aspect output.

Let me know if neither of these help.

I can not turn off the closed captioning on my philips tv , i do not have the original remote to the tv but my cable remote works as a universal remote, please help me the subtitles are driving me crazy !...

I have direct tv, and had the same problem. After an hour on the phone with the worthless tech, I gave up. Finally I figured it out. First of all do you have closed caption problems or is it "subtitles". mine turned out to be direct tv subtitles, not closed caption. I hit the yellow button on the direct tv remote, and presto. Subtitles was set to the on position. changed it to off, and what do you know. fixed.

The pictures zoom beyond screen hence cutting some words/pictures when on video input mode, otherwise it is ok with tv mode!

Check to see if you are on wide zoom mode in that input and check the definition. Go to your menu screen and check your video menu. There are different options for viewing. My inlaws prfer the words cut off it drives me crazy. Hope that helps

Picture on Olevia lcd is too large for screen.

If you are on a cable or dish box, check aspect setting from you box, TV needs to be 16-9 or full, set TV first then change setting on box.

Screen too big for mitsubishi black diamond tv

It was actually a problem with the satellite feed, not the TV. Dish Network was zoomed in, hitting the asterisk button on the dish remote fixed the problem.

Adjusting screen on HD TV

I had the same problem. My cable company told me to press the # button on my remote to change it from "zoom" to "normal" and it solved the problem.
