You most likely have a wide screen and the screen resolution needs to be adjusted to suit the monitor.
Go to the Control Panel - Display and adjust the screen resolution until you get a normal image and correct screen aspect screen ratio. Start with a screen resolution of 1024X768 and gradually increase it until you get an image that suits your screen.

Without more information I'd guess that you are using a widescreen monitor but it is set to display for a regular 4:3 sized screen.

If you are using Windows, try right clicking on your desktop and clicking "Properties". Select the "Settings" tab at the top. Under, "Screen resolution", adjust the bar to display a widescreen resolution such as 1680x1050 for example.

If there are no options available, you may not have a driver installed for your video card (or the wrong one), please post back if so.

Picture is too wide to fit screen can not see complete picture


hi there, i don't know your TV brand but this could be of help anyway. there is an adjustment for horizontal and vertical width. you can manually adjust the setting until it fits the picture on the screen. for standard TV it has trimmer in the CRT board. If in your case you have a soft adjustment in the remote control try to adjust it. Learn how the menu works just look for the picture adjustment.
Good luck, please rate and vote.

I have a 55cm TFT LLED-22FHD TV. The aspect ratio is 16:9. This is too wide and the images appear fat. How do I correct this.


Go to the picture menu and select a different aspect ratio. Auto sizing is useful as the TV will detect the picture size and select the correct aspect ratio, except for letterbox and super wide screen of course as your screen is not the right shape for those.
Hope this helps.

Where is the flasher unit on a 1995 fat boy


Your Fat Boy does not have a conventional flasher unit like on the older cars and bikes. It has a turn signal cancelling unit on it that is a flat looking box about 1/2"thick by about 1" wide and about three inches long. On the Fat Boy, I THINK it's located on the frame between the tanks. It has one large plug on it with a lot of wires going into it.

What is the unit doing or not doing. These units are pretty dependable and usually don't give any trouble. But, they are expensive and you don't want to buy one unless you need one. I have a trouble shooting guide that I'll send you. It's far too much typing to type in here, four full pages with pictures. Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send it to you.

Good Luck

I have a new Acer X203H 20" wide computer monitor. All of my photos are streched wide, and everyone looks fat. Can I adjust this ?


You need to set the PC video resolution to 1600 x 900 for proper 16:9 wide screen format. But if your pictures that you taken with your camera were not 16:9, IE 4 X 5 then it will be stretched side way to fill the screen.

How do I adjust the 22 in. rectangular screen to prevent images from appearing wider than normal. For example, pictures of persons make them look fat and wide.


You can use any other image viewing software such as Picasa. It will open images at 100% size but you can change the size of images

Can't get picture in wide format on the menu. 16:9 and 4:3 only.


I had the same problem with a 50". The only way I could fix it was to set my Bose system to 4:3 format and the tv to 16:9. Now you can use the zoom to get the right size

good luck

Check the B+ output voltage, if this is higher than rated, this problem could occur.
