Re: aspect ratio

Try changing the screen settings for your cable provider's cable box menu. Alot of times they're not properly set in the customer's homes.

Sounds like the aspect ratio is incorrect. A.K.A picture size. Try adjusting it to fit the image to the screen.

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!

You cannot change aspect ratio when recieving HD signal. Try changing the cable box or satellite box format or aspect ratio.

The picture does not fit the screen. The top and bottom of the picture go beyond the screen

you may need to adjust the aspect ratio of the picture, there is typically an "aspect" button on the remote that will adjust the picture from widescreen, super widescreen 16:9 ratio and sometimes you can zoom in. try that

The bottom and top of the picture are being cut off

Check your remote for a "zoom" or "picture size" button. Press this button to adjust the size until everything fits back on the screen.
