This comes down to your settings on your freeview/sky box. or the settings on the TV. Check that the screen is set to something like 16:9 or wide and not auto or 4:3. This goes for the freeview/sky settings too.

There isn't a fault with your screen it comes down to transmissions

I have a black 6in wide bar on left side of the screen and a 2in bar on the right side that run from top to bottom. Only on certain channels and comercials.


Its not the set if only on certain channels, it cannot be. Got a box or something connected for signal?

It also should not do it if a DVD etc connected to a rear input is used.

Picture ratio


Programs that are recorded in 16:9 format appear full screen on a 16:9 TV. A program recorded in a standard 4:3 format will either be stretched to fit the screen or have side bars to fill the screen area. In the case of HD channels, the black side bars are part of the picture which is being broadcasted.

Can't get full screen


I have a Vizio. If I use the HDMI input I can only get normal and zoom w/ picture buttom on the remote but get full picture on all cable supplied HD channels but not on none HD channels. However, if I switch cable input, I have the TV set up with both inputs from the converter box, I am able to have the options of normal,panoramic,wide and zoom on all non HD channels. I don;t like the black bars top and bottom of the HD channels with this imput mode so I switch back to HDMI. Maybe your TV is simmilar.
