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

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.'

How to zoom in on info


When TVs first appeared, they had an picture ratio of 4:3, which matched that of most movie screens at the time. Terrified of losing their business, movie studios struck back with "widescreen" films using 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 ratios. When widescreen TVs started appearing, they emulated those same ratios, but many TV shows (and some movies) were still in 4:3---and we were eventually left with a bit of a mess. Canny manufacturers, including LG, have solved the problem by allowing you to adjust the picture ratio on the TV to fit the program you're watching. If it's not set properly, however, your image will look distorted or cut off. A quick bit of troubleshooting can fix the problem easily.

  1. Press the "Menu" button on the remote and scroll down to the "Option" title (it should be second from the bottom ). Then select "Aspect Ratio." You should see a list of ratio options. You simply need to pick the one which fits the show you're watching.
  2. Choose the 4:3 ratio for older movies and TV programs. You should see a pair of bars on the left and right side of the screen. (That's okay: the bars keep the program in the same proportion in which it was filmed.)
  3. Select the 16:9 ratio for widescreen movies and for more recent shows to match their longer width. For some movies, you may see black bars and the top and bottom of the screen. Again, that allows the movie to be shown in the manner it was filmed.
  4. Pick "Set By Program" to automatically switch the LG TV between 4:3 and 16:9 to match whatever show is on at the time.
  5. Select "Horizon" to horizontally expand the image onscreen. It will fill the whole screen---eliminating the black bars to the left and the right---but it may look distorted.
  6. Use the "Zoom 1" option to zoom the image forward. That will eliminate the black bars at the top or the bottom of the screen, though you will cut off the edges of the image.
  7. Pick the "Zoom 2" button to select a midway point between "Horizon" and "Zoom 1." The picture is stretched, but not as much as with "Horizon," and fills the screen, but doesn't cut off as much as "Zoom 1."
  8. Use the "Cinema Zoom" button to enlarge the picture to fit the screen. This option allows you to adjust the proportion to your liking, rather than use the set proportions of the other aspect options.
  9. Exit the menu when you are done and watch your programming normally.

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 is to ig for the screen in any mode - i have it on full and it cuts everything off teh top and bottom sony bravia


try checking the aspect ratio settings on the device feeding the tv if applicable, i.e set top box, DVD player, etc
Ensure the settings match the tv type, e.g, 16:9 for a widescreen tv. 4:3 may cause cropping of the top/ bottom of the picture if this is set

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

Picture cut


Sounds like a bad panel, although the audio problem is puzzling. When you say "cut off" is half the picture missing? A better description would help
