Re: 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

The screen seems like its fixing to go out! The picture starts off normal size then gets smaller and almost goes completely away!

when picture is getting smaller in size or goes away then hit your TV lightly on left side or right side or on top & then observe will get normal picture or it comes & again it goes....if it is happening like that then following is the situation..........after 4 or 5 yrs in some CRT computer monitors & CRT TVs on main board at some soldering joints crack develops....then due to loose contact picture becomes small in size & disappears...........when we hit that lightly then those loose contacts joins temporarly & again picture appears for some solution is ......TV main board should be observed carefully & most of the joints should be re-soldered.......only a good service engineer can do that........even after hitting TV lightly if there is no response then main board has to be checked your case iam sure it is loose connection problem.........joints should be re- soldered ...100% it works again................this problem cannot be solved by user unless user has idea about components( resisitors, transisitors, diodes,...etc) , have soldering iron , multimeter & other contact good TV service engineer

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

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.

The Tv screen is much smaller during video games than what it is during Movies. Please Tell me how to adjust my screen size.

Movies are shown at a higher resolution than games. That is why the picture is smaller with games than movies. If you turn the Auto Picture Size off, you can set lower grade video to a larger screen size but you will lose quality.
Hope that helps.
