If you're on cable, there is a set up menu on the cable box that specifies what format the image displays. Basically here's what's going on. Some shows are broadcast in HD and some aren't the non HD broadcasts will display with a boarder on the right and left side of the screen, Some broacasts say they're HD but they still broadcast in what is called "letter box" which means the square TV type image. the way around this is there probably is an option either in the cable box to force 16 x 9 display, or there should be a format button on the remote that changes the image format to "wide" or "stretch". That's what you're looking for. Hope that helps.

How to widen my curtis 42 inch flat sreen top and bottom


Some TV's have a zoom function others do not. The program you're watching controls whether the top and bottom of the screen have black bars and is not the fault of the TV. Widening the picture cuts off a lot of the viewable picture and distorts the image. Circles tend to be oval. If your TV has a zoom function, use it.

Widen the screen on Westinghouse tv


Screens are controlled by ASPECT RATIO.
Monitors can have 4:3 16:9 and 16:10 ratios.

You are doing 1 of 3 things.
  1. You have a regular monitor and the tv and are duplicating the screen.
  2. You have a regular monitor and the TV and are extending the screen.
  3. You have just the tv connected.
Your video card has to have a screen resolution that meets the tv's ratio to have the tv take the full screen.

If your configuration is 1. the tv will only match the monitor resolution, so if you change the screen resolution, you may get bars on the monitor, and the tv will go wide screen.

if your configuration is 2. the tv is controlled independently and you can select it to change its resolution to an appropriate aspect resolution. *this requires that your video card gives you the correct screen resolution for your tv. not all displays will work.

If your configuration is 3. the tv is the only resolution that is being pushed and just adjust the resolution til the screen is filled in.

To adjust the screen resolution, right click on the desktop where there isnt an icon and select either Properties (windows xp) or Screen Resolution (windows vista, 7 and 8).

if you have 2 screens press the identify button and it will put a number on each screen. click the appropriate screen and go to the resolution dropdown below. Change, apply and if it doesn't look right, revert and try a different setting. if you try them all and it won't take up the full screen, then the video card can't push the video resolution your monitor wants.

What can I do to widen my satin stitch when it is to narrow for the applique


Hello,
Unless you have and know how to use digitizing software, will you be able to add width to the satin stitches when doing applique. You need to cut the applique fabric larger than the cut-out-line so the applique fabric will held down properly. Some Commercial or higher end home embroidery machines can re-interpret the embroidery design and widen the satin stitches in a design without software. 6f3dbcfe-19c3-4021-b143-de10c9a89868.jpg

To widen border on Toshiba lap top


Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.If you cannot change the screen resolution then most likely the incorrect video driver has been installed.

My picture does not fill the whole screen Horizontally. There is a 6 inch space on both sides of the picture. Help please ?? Thanks Cliff


You can only fix this with the settings on your tv remote, and can only be done while in zoom mode. (This is true of my Sony HD set). Go to menu, then settings on your tv remote and put the tv into zoom mode. Scroll down to Horizontal Setting and widen the screen. If there is an apply setting, click on that. That should take care of it.

Picture has widened


There are alot of things that can cause this. In my experience the most likley culprit in an older TV is that an electrolytic capacitor in the horizontal circuit has gone bad due to heat. You will need to locate the horizontal section and check each cap. especially those near a heat source like a transistor or IC on a heat sync. Since TV's have dangerous lethal voltages I would only recommend doing this if you have experience and take the usual industry accepted percautions.

Screen Widens Out Constantly


you might be getting more supply from regulated power supply if you get wide pictureor width have to be adjusted by width control. but if it stretchs out & lose some of the picture on the right and left edges it might be due to horizontal output section. 1 loose contact in connector. 2 some capacitor might be defective in h/section caution please do not open the set unless you know about high voltage in tv set.
