The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

How do i enlarge the print on the screen


there are several things you can do, change the screen resolution, or change the size of the text, to do this go to Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display then click the 125% radio button and apply. in versions of windows older than windows 7, this process may be slightly different, this option may be in the ease of access centre. if you have trouble changing either of these things type your operating system and change screen resolution or change text size into google. to change the screen resolution go to control panel and in appearance and personalisation click adjust screen resolution, this will make everything look bigger, try to keep near the same aspect ratio or photos and text will look distorted or stretched.

Picture is stretched on wide screen a circle looks egg shape


Hello
This is an issue because most television programming is produced in a 4:3 aspect ratio. The minority of programming is high definition, which is produced in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Because televisions are made in either a standard (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) format, there is always a conflict with an image being stretched vertically or horizontally. In the case of widescreen televisions, the stretching is horizontal.
Picture Modes
Luckily, most if not all widescreen televisions have a picture mode that allows the user to toggle between a wide (16:9) and standard (4:3) mode. This means that a person can watch non-HD programming in the 4:3 picture mode, and then go to widescreen when watching HD programming. Some TVs have a picture mode that will automatically adjust to the correct aspect ratio. Other people will watch all programming in the wide picture mode, and learn to adjust to watching a stretched picture.
A stretched picture is when a 4:3 image is pulled on the sides to fill the entire screen. People and images end up looking fatter/wider and shorter.
So, what's the big deal?
Some people don't like a 4:3 picture stretched or distorted because it does reduce the overall visual and picture quality. Some people don't like the bars on the side of the screen when a widescreen is in a standard (4:3) picture mode because it looks different.
Solution
There is no fix-all solution for this issue, unless you own a TV that will automatically adjust to the intended aspect ratio. The stretching of the picture is a side-effect, the price we are paying for the better resolution that is digital and high definition. This is definitely something to consider when buying a television, but keep in mind that there is no right or wrong within this issue. It is just the way it is, and there is no way around it unless you buy a 4:3 aspect ratio television.
Hope these lines will clear the issue, if so do rate the solution

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

Everything on the screen appears stretched


If you can, set the Screen resolution to the maximum native resolution your monitor supports by adjusting the slider. to 1680x1050, if you can set it to that, then Windows will automatically display at the proper aspect ratio, and the monitor will not have to stretch anything. Setting your screen resolution to match your monitor's native resolution is, by far, the preferred solution to get you the best looking display.
If that specific resolution is not available, then you'll need to try resolutions that are smaller than that, but ideally with the same aspect ratio. 1512x945, for example, would maintain the same aspect ratio. Not all monitors handle running at less than their optimal resolution well, and it may result in a slightly fuzzy display, but it won't be horizontally stretched. If this fails to fix the problem it could be a problem with your video card

Picture size/aspect ratio in HDTV and upconverting DVD


In the digital world, you can't have a 4:3 aspect ratio DVD title (720x480) on a 720p (1280 x 720) / 1080p (1920x1080) display without some kind of centering or stretching to some extent. (square vs rectangle) Now, on a 16:9 aspect ratio title (wide screen format) you should have any scaling issues regardless of the pixel resolution. Despite what the sales person told you, trans-coding ("upconverting") lower resolution titles to a higher resolution does not increase the quality of the image. Any attempt to do so would be only to try to reduce block noise and any kind pixelation at higher resolutions. (blurring square pixel blocks)

In the analog world, the quality of the image is based on the encoder and signal depth. If your TV excepts HD analog, you might be able to have your cake and eat it too. That would force your display to convert an analog signal into a digital resolution, letting the TV hardware do all the trans-coding. Manufactures are completely phasing out analog signal receiving, but might have the RGB RCA connectors for backwards compatibility. Eventually, it will not be supported and you will be forced to buy higher resolution content.

How can I change aspect ratio on acer 19"monitor. The picture is not real ..it is stretched Thank You


In the display properties you can adjust your resolution (aspect ratio).

1. Right click in an open area on your desktop and go to properties.

2. The display properties window will appear. Click on the "SETTINGS" tab.

3. You can adjust the resolution one notch at a time to find the aspect you're looking for. NOTE: by clicking on "APPLY" instead of "OK" you can see the affects of your change without closing the window down. This will allow you to easily change it again without having to reopen the display properties windows over and over again.

Hope this helps.

2 problems: 1. Is there a way to make the images on my 19 inch acer lcd monitor not appear stretched? 2. How do I get a screen resolution of 1440 x 900 (It's not one of the options in my display...


1. The only way to avoid stretching of images is by increasing the resolution. Many 19-inch monitors with conventional (4:3) aspect ratios have 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution. The 1600 x 1200 resolution is ideal for graphic artists and those who work with photos, since it's close to the resolution of a 2-megapixel digital photo.

2. You can double check by going to the display properties - Settings- Advanced tab below the screen resolution slider, choosing the Adapter tab, click List all modes and that will settle it once and for all. If 1440 x 990 isn't listed you're likely going to have to buy a graphics card that can reproduce that resolution.

Also try and update the driver for your graphics card.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
