Hi,
Please change Zoom/ Aspect ratio of screen in tv menu to get full screen view. It sounds current setting is 4:3 that is why you see black bands on sides of picture, change it to 16:9 ratio to have full view.
All that options are in menu of tv.
If that does not fix he problem then it would be hardware problem in your plasma tv, please confirm is it LG 50PC1DRA plasma tv or any other model?
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

    ==========================================================

    OK, let me know about spot.
    It is not black bars going top to bottom on side of screen?
    What is the location of spots and any idea about its size? Do you see picture around these spots?

    There is only one way to expand picture, it is zoom/ aspect ratio/ screen format, all these are different names but function is same.
    Please check tv with any other video source like dvd player, laptop etc.
    Another possible fix could be Reset TV to Default Settings and procedure would be written in user manual. I need exact model of tv to think about further options.
    Thanks.

How to widen my curtis 42 inch flat sreen top and bottom


Some TV's have a zoom function others do not. The program you're watching controls whether the top and bottom of the screen have black bars and is not the fault of the TV. Widening the picture cuts off a lot of the viewable picture and distorts the image. Circles tend to be oval. If your TV has a zoom function, use it.

Right click on your desktop and click screen resolution. Increase your resolution. If you are not able to then you need to download your display driver. Search for device manager and go down to your display. If it has a broken or missing driver then go to hps website download and install the driver.

Picture is good except for a black mountain on left side about two inches in goes from top to bottom


This would appear to be an area of dead or damaged pixels within the screen. Either way it would need the screen to be replaced, but as the cost of a replacement screen can be very costly you may just decide to put up with it.

Screen has borders when watching tv


This is common issue of the channels that use 4:3 format while TV is designed for 16:9. To get it disappear, you just go to picture option, choose WIDE FIT, this fuction will widen the picture to whole screen. Of course, you have to accept the picture is blur a bit.
