Tv is not showing complete picture....some things are cut off


Change the aspect ratio.this can usually be done via the remote or through the tv menu.normal view for most wide screens is wide 16:9 but if you have zoom or crop black bars then you may lose parts of playback.

I have a Vizio M260VA and the picture is cropped in too tight for the screen. Is there a way to set the picture so it fits the screen?


on your Vizio remote is the word WIDE, mine is in the lower left corner. Click on that and you will be given choices or different screen options.

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.

You have to turn off the "automatic", so the TV will not automatically show you what it wants you to see. Then, if you select 16:9 , you will see true widescreen.
Since you cannot physically change the size or shape of your TV, the picture itself will be black on the top and bottom. Since not all programs are widescreen, sometimes the sides will be black. You can try the other sizes to see which works best for you.

Wide screen lcd simple question.


Hi pooing stone,

You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.

This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater. While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.

If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying. Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.

FYI: It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.

Thank you,
Jason,

if you have a wide flatscreen tv it could be that the picture size is in the wrong mode. under the mode button on your tv remote should be two buttons labeled wide and zoom. try pushing these buttons to adjust the tv screen size.
