Picture won't expand to full screen

I cannot get the picture to go full screen on my monitor since purpurchasing a new computer. It has black border around picture 1 1/4 in on the right 1/2 in top and bottom and varies from 1/4 inch on the left to picture moving off the desktop and not visible.

I cannot adjust it with computer settings or use of monitor controls. Do I need software to re-program? What do I do
Thanks.

You should have the Picture tube checked by a professional, as thats the first thig most peeps think that goes bad when a picture is gone or bad. It could also be the crt driver circuit.

common problems with these, usually customers here a loud pop. then the screen goes blank. I would try...
Some of these have a 4 pin test on the control board that you can jump with solder to get test pattern. If you get it to do that then these boards maybe good and would replace the control board. if nothing happens, then
the upper & lower drive also the Ysus and Zsus boards all at the same time.
last could be a defective panel.
hope this helps. p/n are on all the boards.

SOURCE: Zenith picture problems

Your TV is showing signs of age. It's displaying something called "vertical foldover" which is due to capacitors in the set's vertical output section that need to be replaced. These failed parts can stress the vertical output integrated circuit, and if that goes bad your picture will collapse to a thin horizontal line. The capacitors themselves (usually 3 or 4 need to be replaced) are pretty cheap. A TV shop in your area (if there are any still around!) could fix it and the repair should be under $100.

By moving those rings on the tube's neck (which is actually the back) you have messed up the set's convergence. Those rings are magnets which adjust the electron beams in the tube so the red, green and blue images line up correctly on the tube face. The rings are often marked with a stripe after adjustment to show how they were lined up. Look carefully at them and see if there are any marks you can go by to reset them. To properly converge the set some equipment is needed to generate the adjustment test pattern. Again, a shop could do it for you.

All things considered, at this point you might seriously consider replacing the set. Not because the troubles aren't fixable, but because other parts can start failing because of age, and by now your picture tube is on borrowed time as well.

If you are using cable TV there a button on the remote "*" which zoom in and out. You can also check with your cable company in case you have HD TV and not using a HD box.

Can I get rid of borders above and below my screen when watching netfix on my pc


What's probably going on here is that the video your watching is a different aspect ratio than your monitor. So for the video to completely cover your monitor it would either need to be stretched, or have part of the video cropped off on the sides. Instead of distorting or cropping the image the black borders are shown. Netflix doesn't provide a way to change this currently. A work-around though, would be to change the resolution on your monitor. So if for example your monitor has an aspect ratio of 16:10 (like 1920x1200), and the video is 16:9 (like 1920x1080), you would change your resolution from 1920x1200 down to 1920x1080. (9/16 * 1920 = 1080)

Similar to TV - you need to adjust the "H" - Horizontal and "V" - Vertical. Horizontal will move picture up or down and Vertical will adjust left to right.

Use the menu button on your monitor.

Had the same problem too... It's because it's set to underscan. To remove the black border, right click desktop and click Catalyst Control Center. Click the Graphics tab on the upper left portion of the Catalyst and choose desktop and displays. Right click the picture of the monitor at the lower part of the screen and choose Configure. At that screen, Click the 'Scaling Options' tab and move the slider all the way right to Overscan.

Picture not centered on my philips 47'' lcd tv


NOTE:(Edited and copied from another thread on Fixya.com, c7carl)

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD
By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007
Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago

I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.

All LCD displays have an "Auto" button press it and see if that fixs it. should be aparent what it does if it does it. but basicly it alines the picture with the screen. when you change back to user profile you may need to press it again.
