Are you using the original remote control...Reg TV doesn't fit your screen because it's not filmed in HD...But it should be clear but you have to watch it smaller... Usually big screen tv's will have a black trim around the picture...And zoom cuts off some of the picture..Some tv's have wide, cinema and other options...Your TV might just have zoom

LG 50" the pitcher is off the screen each side by

Ok, first make sure you or someone in family didn't hit the "HD Zoom" on your cable remote or whatever kind of remote you have. On ours - Cable- if you hit it once it is in "Normal" picture which on ours has black around edges on a non Hd channel. Then if you hit it again it Zooms once makes pix very large and if you hit button a third time brings it into a wide screen Zoom that fills the Tv screen. If we are viewing HD channels I put it on Normal which will fill the screen and give you the best HD pix. If we are viewing a NON HD channel, then normal will have black on sides, so I hit the Zoom a couple times to fill in the screen. My brother in law had this problem and couldn't figure out why his Sports channel Scores were always half cut off the screen! it was zoomed in too much for that channel. His sports channel was in HD so needed to be on normal instead of zoomed in.
if it is not the Cable remote then this is a second possible cause:

The other thing that happened to me was - we hardly ever use our original TV remote that came with the TV. but one day our picture looked weird and the cable remote didn't adjust it. One of us had hit the "P SIZE" button on the TV remote. this changes your pix from - 4:3 ratio to 16:9 ratio and vice versa. I put clicked that button and on the TV it shows whether it is at 4:3 or 16:9. For newer wide screen TVs you want that set at 16:9 ratio.

All cable company remotes probably are a bit different so check with your company ... to find out where the zoom control is on their remote.

My kenmore 27 wide laundry center will not fill on rinse cycle! the water runs, but does not fill??????

If water is entering the tub on rinse and running out, the drain line is too low or siphoning the water out.
If it is not entering the machine the cold water inlet valve has trash in the screen and must be cleaned.
A test is choose COLD FILL and turn the machine on for regular wash. If no water enters,turn off the water supply and remove the hoses from the machine. Look inside the cold fill connection and clean the screen.

My dynex tv has digital channels but they are not audible

Use component cables instead of the HDMI cables. We had the same problem and that's how the cable guy fixed it. You use just the regular red, white, and yellow cables then the other 3 colors that are just for HD tvs.

Sony LCD cutting off image when hi-def cable hooked up.

This will happen invariably. Depends on the nature of the signal that is being received. Some will fill entire screen, others will not.

Just go with the flow - tv is operating normally.

Nec plasmasync 50MP2

Lol, I'm not a Guru but I am a Wiz, so I can help. Usually, those lines you see, are from the burning of a channel. It's when the plasma gases inside of the screen stick to the screen and don't come off, it's permanent. Unless your T.V. type has on the menu a Screen Burn Protection like a 50 inch Samsung I have. The only reason it burns is because bright white lines in front of a dark background. Usually HD channels have small icons so they don't stick in the screen, so unless it's under warranty, you can take it back, but if not, then sorry. You can't do anything with no warranty or receipt.

You may have a control button sticking either on your remote or on the front panel of your set. I have run in to this on several sets. When this happens, some really strange things will happen including problems like you're having. Stargazer
