Adjust the brightness until it starts making the black in the picture slightly milks and back it off slightly
Adjust the contrast so that the whitest whites show detail, too much contrast and they disappear
Adjust colour to suit, start with it half way, look at flesh tones on a news reader as a guide and adjust sharpness so you can see detail but not so that there are false or visible edges around things

The picture is outside the edges of the TV


It's probably an issue of the "Aspect" or the "Screen Mode" you're in. I'm no TV repair expert, but if you look in your Main Menu for "Screen Mode" or even your remote might have a button labeled "Asp" or "Aspect" or "Mode"....or even "Wide" (which when pressed repeatedly will cycle through the most common 4 screen modes = Wide, Screen Fit, Zoom, 4:3.) The last one refers to the ratio aspect, but depending on your TV, they could be named differently.
Given your description, it seems you're in "Zoom" mode, since it's cutting off the edges of the picture. Put it on a station like CNN, which has a streaming ticker at the bottom and cycle through the options you have until you find the one you prefer. (Note: you should also be able to set this in your Main Menu somewhere as your preferred view, but some shows and movies might come through as full screen or 'Letterbox' regardless of your preference.
One final observation I've found on several units is that the remote button that's in the bottom right-hand corner (which may not be labeled as such) is the default location for your aspect selections. Push it and see what happens.
Good luck!

The image display on my Westinghouse 42" LED TV does not fit the screen. It is zoomed in, so when watching sports, i cannot see the score and time ticker.


Using the remote go to the menu for the TV. Look for picture or aspect ratio. Make sure it is set to 16:9 and not zoom or auto. That should clear the problem up.

My Vizio LCD HDTV 32in. doesn't seem to "center" the picture on sports programs so when they have a score box in the upper left corner most of it is cut off and can't be seen. Doesn't matter how I adjust...


This is a common complaint. To be frank I don't have the exact term for your Vizio, but most recent LCD and plasma TVs have the ability to "zoom" or adjust "picture format" (those are two commonly used terms) depending on the signal source and format.

it has to do with the fact that currently there are both classic style format 4:3 signal sources as well as new HD 16:9 signal sources and on top of that it may happen that a 4:3 signal source is distributing adjusted image from a 16:9 or other signal source. Think cinema adjusted to run on classic TV - remember the vertical strip of image with two huge black areas below and above it?

Well the ZOOM or PICTURE FORMAT allows to adjust such an image so that you cut the "void" are by scalling (enlarging) the visible area to fit the whole screen.

A problem then appears when the signal source is normal and showing full screen. Then, because of the enlargement, you start missing some of the picture. Before there was nothing there because it was showing adjusted wide (cinema) format to the TV box format, but when the new TV box format gets enlarged it sure starts missing around the edges.

That's what you're seeing.

More and more TVs do not have the ability to adjust that through the TV itself. Don't ask me why, but they can only do it through the remote.

So if you have an original remote there MUST be a button there that's called ZOOM or FORMAT.

It does the trick.

Hope this helps. If it does do not forget to rate it.

Cheers,

Sony lcd projection tv vertical adjustment KF-50E200A


Try changing the settings for the video formats, widescreen, regular, and all that. There are angle mirrors in the back of the tv that direct the projected image on the screen. The mirrors are positioned such that if, says, a piece of a metal bracket or something falls down inside the projection area, it'll fall right against the projection lens and block the image. Open up the back of the tv and follow the light path from the screen backwards to its source and make sure there's no debris in the projection path.

Aspect ratio, cuts off edges of picture.(NOT THE T.V, THE RECEIVER!)


Dilon, 311's have no aspect ratio adjustment and is not able to switch from the standard 4:3 setting therfore if it is connected to a TV with a large screen the TV has to stretch the picture to fill the screen thus cutting off portions of the picture. I suggest you get a HD receiver as they will be able to change the format and aspect ratio but even these make some sacrifices to fill the screen as well. Most notable of the losses will be the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen where sports scores usually are displayed. Thhis is all a result of the plethora of screen sizes on the market and will not be resolved anytime soon that I am aware. Dish has a 211 which is a one room HD receiver, 612 which is a one room dual tuner receiver with DVR, 222 which is a dual tuner two room receiver with HD capability to the first location and SD to the second, 622 and 722 which are both dual tuner two room DVR receivers with HD to the first location and SD to second. I am sorry I could not bear better news but I wanted to thank you for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.

TV Screen Does not Display Entire Image


Most likely it has a horizontal width control on the inside of the set on the main module. It is usually to the right side of the set near the high voltage transformer. I advise caution unless you understand the operation of the tv and the components near the control.

News ticker off bottom of screen, how to adjust?


sounds like its stretched out just a bit. Do you feel comfortable with messing around inside where theres 100s of volts??? if you do then in the vert curcuit theres a small control called the vert height control right on the printed curcuit board. adjust it slightly so you can see that full pic but not the black partm of the pic. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND thaT if you have no experience with this then leave it to a pro as afterv all they will charge you a minumum beanch charge to adjust the set for you Im sure as it is a minor thing to do. good Luck
