IF YOU'RE USING A TV CABLE BOX, USE ITS REMOTE TO ADJUST THE PICTURE, NOT THE SAMSUNG REMOTE. CHOOSE "NORMAL", AND YOU'LL SEE EVERYTHING THAT'S BEING BROADCAST.

GOOD LUCK!

YOU MUST GO INTO YOUR PS3 VIDEO SETTINGS MENU AND SET YOUR HDMI TO 1080P AND YOUR PICTURE SHOULD BE OK

SOURCE: Sony Bravia - picture don't fit the screen

I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box w/ Time Warner. I followed the instructions below for the cable box. Somehow it reset my picture and I can now read the ticker at the bottom of the screen and the different picture sizes seem to work properly. Good Luck.

SOURCE: TV picture doesn't fit in screen no matter what the setting

Ok, so I think I have your solution :)

You're actually my first when it comes to this site, so hopefully this fixes your problem!

Step 1 - Turn off the cable box, but leave the TV on

Step 2 - On the front of the 8300HD, press the "guide" button and the "info" button at the same time

Step 3 - Choose "HD" for High Definition, or "SD" for standard definition. (Sounds like you're HD?)

Step 4 - Choose the aspect ratio 16:9

Step 5 - Choose "progressive scan" if it asks you.

Now press the "power" button on the box, does that fix it?

SOURCE: We have a widescreen plasma (Panasonic TY ST05-K).

Hi there! If picture is smaller top to bottom with blank section on top and bottom then check your aspect ratio settings. If blank at the bottom only the Bottom Y-Drive board may be faulty. If blank at the top The Top Y-Drive may be faulty. If blank on the Left (TOP TO Bottom) then the Right X-Drive Board and on the Right, the Left X-Drive Board. May also be bad connections on the cables or flexible ribbon cables. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Samsung television LE40A559P4F i cannot expand the picture to fit full screen whena picture is broadcast in 4.3 foremat ive tried the picture settings but cannot get the picture to fit the whole screen


When in 4:3 format you cannot generally change that setting.. unless your TV gives you a widescreen "Over-ride" as the aspect ratio is "Set" in programming as the signal is decoded...

Picture seems to big for TV.cant read bottom words on screen and words are cut off on side also. Cant see scrores on any sports or read peoples names on bottom of the screen


Using the menu or settings button on your remote, access the TV's menu and find the area for picture settings and zoom. You're likely set to a zoom mode, so cycle through the options until you find the zoom setting that sizes to your TV best. (On most widescreens, the best picture is often on the setting 'panarama.'

My screen does not cover the whole screen. It is not on widescreen mode, but it is a shortened picture and some of what I am watching is cut off.


A lot depends on what the TV station cuts off also.
If they are transmitting a 5 X 4 picture, your TV will try an reproduce it giving cut off edges or top and bottom. It won,t fit properly.
Hope that helps to explain it.

Picture Size


Keep in mind that not all programs and show are in widescreen format. When set to normal, you will get those black bars on the sides because the program is sized for the older TV's. Some TV's will have a zoom option, but that will cut off some of the top and the bottom of your picture.

Until everything goes widescreen, you are stuck in normal with those black bars or widescreen with the fat people.

I hate distortion in my TV image, so I am perfectly fine with my TV on normal.

Good luck.

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

My tv zooms in and changes the format.


This is normal - you are zooming in on the picture. Most people use the zoom feature to "stretch" a widescreen movie so it will fit the screen.
