TV picture too wide

Picture appears to be twice as wide as the screen. I have tried adjusting picture size i.e 4:3, 16:9 etc but no joy. I have even tried resetting the TV but picture remains the same.

SOURCE: Tv picture needs adjusting

Majority of problems in tv sets is not a simple adjustment but insted a componet failure of some sort. So getting in to the service menu or adjusting pots on the main board usaly gives you two problems to repair

There is a section in menu but i can't think of which one it is at the moment. I would suggest playing with your menu and you will find it.

There should a selection for the size picture your viewing. There is most likely a zoom selection as well.

On Sony 36 iinch Trinitron TV, when I go to HDTV channels the picture size changes to widescreen. How do I adjust back to full screen on HD? I tried the "no zoom" button but that doesn't work. Cannot...

Please note that all HDTV channels project wide screen pictures. You can still go to settings and then picture mode and change the format to 4:3/full mode.

Picture too large for screen

It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.

Picture too big for screen?

There is a service menu that controls such things as picture size etc. and that's likely where adjustments have to be made.
Unfortunately I'm not sure how to get into it. That information should be here somewhere, search for your tv brand and "service menu".

Size of the picture decreased

If this only happens with your cable or satellite box this may be an adjustment in your box. So you may need to contact them and find out how to adjust the picture size. This tv may have a wide mode setting on the tv remote. Pushing this button may select full,wide,wide zoom or normal size. On many occasions the tv stations control the picture size. Good Luck
