My tv screen is too wide horizontally. I can't see but what's in the middle of the picture. Do I need to purchase a new tv or is this something that can be fixed?


go into video set up and take tv out of zoom mode

it sounds like you have it set to zoom a standard definition signal and that will make picture become bigger than the screen and cut picture off

hope that helps

I cant view the whole screen, the top and bottom are cut off?


thats normal if you have a wide screen tv. either your tv or your cable box must set your picture to zoom or stretch to get rid of the bars. via cable box its in settings then aspect ratio or display settings and same goes for the tv. let me know if this helped.

How do I see the hole picture on my Philips match lll line. Black corridors on each side cuts away the sides of the picture. /t


You may actually be looking at the entire picture. The newer televisions have a 16:9 aspect ratio (16 units wide for every 9 units high). The older sets had a 4:3 aspect ration, and a lot of material was made for the 4:3 screens. There are three ways to look at this material on a wide screen set: use the "shadow box" you describe, stretch the picture sideways to fit the screen, or expand it to fit width and lose the top and bottom of the picture. Your choice depends on the material and your personal preference.

Now, if you know you are looking at wide screen material, you need to correct a setting in the view format options. These settings go by various names in the instruction manual and on-screen menus - "resolution", "aspect", or "display format" are common. I haven't seen the menus on a Phillips set, so I don't know what term they use.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.

I cannot get my cable to show in full screen. I have Time Warner HD service. Im hooked up right, but my picture does not use the whole 37" screen. When I change my picture width, I get No Scale, Full,...


For HD you have to have a square screen
Sorry to disagree; the standard screen has an aspect ratio of 4:3, this is far more 'square' than the 16:9 (aka 'wide screen') which is standard for HDTV. If you are on cable or satellite service, you may well have to pay extra to have the whole of your screen available for viewing.
That is why only 'over the air' broadcasts are absolutely affected by the change from analog to digital next February but other sources do not have to change over to the new standard and the 4:3 sets will work fine without any extra box until those sources decide to 'go digital.'

Picture is cut off at top and bottom


I had the same problem with my westinghouse 47 inch HDTV. It turned out that someone had inadvertently hit the "format" key on my satellite (Direct TV) TV remote controller. If you have satellite TV you might want to check this out. I set it back to the previous setting and I get the entire screen. Hope this helps someone.
