Warped/zoomed-in screen on an Insignia 30 inch HDTV?

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.

UN46EH5300 adjust screen size to get whole picture and closed captions


Sounds like you have it on zoom setting. Go to the picture menu and scroll through the options. Start with 16:9 and try others if this doesn't work. If you've already tried this, you may have to go into screen setting and manually draw the picture in horizontally and vertically - but make sure you've got it on 16:9 and paused on a typical picture before you mess around with these settings.

My picture does not fill the whole screen Horizontally. There is a 6 inch space on both sides of the picture. Help please ?? Thanks Cliff


You can only fix this with the settings on your tv remote, and can only be done while in zoom mode. (This is true of my Sony HD set). Go to menu, then settings on your tv remote and put the tv into zoom mode. Scroll down to Horizontal Setting and widen the screen. If there is an apply setting, click on that. That should take care of it.

I just bought a new insignia LCD TV and the picture does not cover the entire screen. Instead of the 32 inch. diagnal I should, I have a 24 inch picture. Is there something I can do about it?


The "picture size" on the TV needs to be set correctly. You should have a "ZOOM" button on your remote. Press it a few times, cycling through the options... see if this fixes the problem.

Be advised, many (most) HD channels do not show HD content all the time. At the broadcasters discretion, they may choose to ADD the black bars to either side (and/or top an bottom) of the image. This is what the "ZOOM" button is actually for... to allow you to correct this, filling the screen with the image.

*Note: many cable box have a "FORMAT" or "HD ZOOM" button. When used in conjunction with the TVs zoom feature, you can end up having one device set correctly, while the other is not. The result is often a picture that is expanded far beyond the bounds of the displayable area of the screen. If you can not find a solution using the "ZOOM" button, pick the setting which shows the most image. Now adjust the cable box setting (FORMAT / HD ZOOM).

Insignia 32" 720p Flat-Panel LCD HDTV - High-Gloss Black Picture is too big for screen ,cut off all around, top, bottom and sides. Can't read things on screen, heads cut off etc. I've gone through...


try checking the menu setting on your Dish Network, there may be a television format in that menu set up, if it is only when a dvd player is playing, then check the format on that, so on so forth... that is one place to start, check if it is local (TV) or if it is from attached component ( Dish dvr/ dvd etc). also refer to your owner's manual.. if all else fails, call customer service @ insignia

Use the Picture, Zoom, or Aspect button on the TV remote2_bing.gif to cycle through the available screen sizes. You may also be able to set screen size in a Setup-Picture (or Video) menu.

Picture is too big for screen


You will have a button on the _original_ remote that says Format, Aspect Ratio, Zoom, Size or just AR. It will cycle through Normal, Stretch, Partial Zoom, Zoom, Gray Bar, or the like. You are not in Normal but in one of the Zooms. Stretch is used to make 4x3 movies fill a 16x9 screen, may not be desirable. Zoom is used to fill the 16x9 screen with movies that have been letter boxed. Gray Bar fills the sides of a 4x3 picture on a 16x9 set with gray to "avoid" burn in. Use normal except zoom on LB. -Ken

Dear RyanVa21;
Try changing the picture size with your set's remote, press the aspect ratio button. The remote must be the original Panasonic remote.
Please let me know if that did it.

Thanks!
