    it looks like it is wide screen but there is not a way to manipulate the screen.

    Screen looks as if it is in "zoom" mode, cutting off portions of the picture.

  • hilltopchiro Dec 28, 2008

    About 3 months ago our TV went into a widescreen format and the left and right edges of the picture are now cut off - even the TV's built in channel display got the chop and we are unable to see which channel we are on. I would estimate we are losing about 5-6 inches of viewable picture, and it seemed to randomly occur one day.

    Initially we thought one of the kids we were watching messed with a setting, but it almost seems like a part of the TV went bad or something along those lines. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
The name of the button on the remote is called format.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

How do I change the picture size?


You can change the picture size by using either the TV remote or the cable box remote (which ever you are using). Just go into the TV settings option, scroll through the different options that adjust everything from color and tint, sound, contrast, etc, and you should find one for changing the screen size (my Sony TV can be changed from normal, and wide, to wide zoom).

The score on football games on fox and cbs are halfway off the screen. How do I fix this?


Hello

It is likely that you have the "picture size" set to a mode that does not match what the channel is actually providing.

Go to the Menu options on your TV and then look for the Picture options. Change the size between the different options (typically 16:9, 4:3, Wide, Fit to Screen, etc.) and see which mode works best for the Fox and CBS broadcasts.

It is likely you have the TV set to Wide or Fit to Screen. Both change the settings to make 4:3 broadcasts fill the screen of a wide screen TV. Changing this to 16:9 should allow you to see the information on the sides and bottom of the screen again.

Picture size


This is the same problem I have (the picture being cut off on the edges). On your computer, you need to change to a native display.

For instance, 1920x1080 usually cuts an inch off of all sides, but it's meant more for videos where a little cropping isn't a big deal; not general screen use.

I believe the reason this happens is because with those other resolutions, 1920x1080 for instance, they are not your laptop's "native resolution", so in order to avoid scaling and stretching the image (which would degrade quality) they show its exact size, point by point, which is bigger than the number of pixels on your TV display.

Some TVs, like mine, have a TV option called "100% scale" that forces the picture to exactly fit to the screen. But this causes stretching and distortion if the aspect ratio of your resolution and the TV's whole screen are different.

Try something like 1366x768 or 1360x768 (some have both, some have only one of those). You should be able to find one or two resolutions like this that show the entire screen with full sharp clarity. It may even look better than 1920x1080 depending on your computer; find the best one that shows sharpness.

Picture size


I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but:
1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio.
2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays.
NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options.
4:3 Programming
[Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen.
[Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off.
[Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal.
16:9 Programming
[Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is.
[Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation.
[Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.


Hello
You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.
OK.

I have a Compaq Q2009 (new). The picture is too wide on the right side, cutting off the image about 1/4".


There are a series of buttons on the monitor. There's probably a Menu button that allows you to change the dimensions and sizes of your picture on the screen. You'll need to open the picture menu, and find the Horizontal picture options. There are normally two options - one changes the horizontal placement, and the other changes the horizontal size. You can play with these two options until you can see your whole screen.

Letterboxing: The top and bottom of the screen are cut off I originally obtained this TV from my Bro who passed away from cancer at age 31 a few years ago & I was never able to find out what he did with the manual. However, I was able to find a manual online but after viewing it, I still wasn't able to find the info. that I am trying to obtain for the correct settings to get rid of these black margins at the top & bottom of the screen. I am trying to find out what video output format is supported by this TV model, as far as the resolution and output format, specifically for a Cisco or AKA Scientific Atlanta 500GB HD-DVR through Cox cable? My available settings with Cox cable & the DVR I have( Cisco or Scientific Atlanta 500GB model)are the following-Resolution:480i, with output format of either:Zoom 16:9 Pic or Letterbox 16:9 Resolution:480p standard, with output format of either:Zoom 16:9 Pic. or Letterbox 16:9 Resolution:480wide, with either output format of:Stretch 4:3 Pic, Preserve 4:3 Pic or Sidebar 4:3 Pic Resolution:720p wide, with output format of:Stretch 4:3 Pic, Preserve 4:3 Pic or Sidebar 4:3 Pic and finally, resolution:1080i wide with output format of:Stretch 4.3 Pic, Preserve 4:3 Pic or Sidebar 4:3 Pic? Everything worked fine with the screen size when I had a 160GB Motorola HD-DVR with Cox under the video output settings of:resolution:480i and video output of:Zoom 16:9 Pic until, I grew tired of constantly running out of space & had them switch me to a 500GB HD-DVR. They were supposed to install another Motorola HD-DVR but just with 500GB version but when the Cox maintenance employee showed up to swap them out and install the 500GD HD-DVR, he only had a Cisco/Scientific Atlanta 500GB available on his truck, which is I guess what they use for the Contour service but he attached a filter to the back of the coxial cable to make it a regular HD-DVR without Contour(even though they tried charging me extra for contour for 3 months before I finally got that straightened out since the maintenance workers & billing dept. are often not on the same page as I found out at Cox. I have tried calling Cox for support & they say that I need to find out & know my TV's video output settings. I explained to them that it worked perfectly fine just weeks ago with 480i resolution and output format of Zoom 16.9 Pic before they switched to the Cisco/Scientific Atlanta HD-DVR from the Motorola DVR and that I didn't have the manual and I stated why and they basically said, too bad, figure it out yourself. Can someone please help me out? I have the TV set up for the correct zip code, cable box-Yes, the cable box output channel-video 1/Aux (since that is what the TV manual I read online said to use if you are using the 3-color coded cables instead of the coxial cables to plug in from the TV to the HD-DVR) & I have the Cable box remote control code set to code 008 (Scientific Atlanta) that I verified to be correct by checking it through the TV's automated code search. The serial # for the TV is:C306B2084 and the Chassis # is:ATC113BB1 and its the 27" RCA Entertainment Series Guide Plus Gold Gemstar that is X-Box ready. Thanks so much, Todd
