Question about Insignia Televison & Video
Is there a way to fix a warped/zoomed-in screen on an Insignia 30 inch HDTV?
I was tweaking my horizontal size settings from the TV menu while I was playing my Xbox 360, because the screen seemed a little off to me. I had the setting at +6 originally, and I turned it down to 0. Shortly thereafter, the screen became warped/zoomed-in. There are also horizontal lines running down the screen, but only noticeable on dark/blank screens. Now, toggling the horizontal size settings has no effect (although I can still toggle horizontal position, vertical position, and vertical size) The TV is supposed to be at 16:9 aspect ratio. However, when I toggle the zoom options, the 4:3 aspect ratio fits the screen the best. The picture is still skewed, zoomed-in slightly, and no longer HD quality. Even though these settings are only supposed to be applied to the component output (Xbox 360 in this case), they seem to have carried over to regular TV shows too.
Also the TV is only ~4 years old (out of warranty) and I've sorta resigned myself to losing this TV. I want to try my best to salvage it though. So thanks in advance.

Normallly, if the format button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Wrong aspect ratio!
It was the zoom !! I lost the tv remote, I went to Radio Shack for a Universal remote and they didn't have one with a Zoom button,
The tv menu doesn't have a Zoom button either...Finally found one that works and all is WELL! Depending on what the tv station transmits, the screen size changes in the auto-matic selection in the menu.

SOURCE: Picture larger than screen...
If you go to 4:3 mode and the picture is still cutoff then i would assume the tv has a problem with the horizontal or the pinchusion correction circuit . This would be the only two areas that would cause this problem . Check the format section of your menu to make sure it is not in zoom mode or otherwise if it is not then you have a problem with one of two above mentioned circuit problems . Good luck

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

There are some parts that have failed in the horizontal scan amplifier. You will have to have the set serviced by a TV service tech to determine the exact failed parts and have them replaced.
