Question about Proview PL926WBi 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

A few days ago, I hit a "full screen" button to view an old picture. I have never been able to get the screen back to normal. It is either too wide or too narrow.

    The full-screen is on the the internet browser or different. Please let me know which appears in full screen?

    What is the Operating system of the computer?

    Which Internet Browser are you using? (Internet Explorer/ Mozilla Firefox/Chrome/...)

    Let me use some dirrent termanology here because I have probably created the wrong picture in your mind. I use Google or Internet Explorer and have Windows Vista. My problem is the desktop. It is very disfigured and I cannot get it back to "normal" like it has always looked. This is a monitor problem, I believe. I am not terribly pc savvy.

    When I hit F 11 just now with the internet connection up, it went to full screen. My problem is the desktop configuration.

    I think the resolution of the monitor is messed up. Please do the below.



    1. Right click on your desktop.

    2. Click "Properties".

    3. Click the "Settings" tab.

    4. Increase the Screen resolution.

  • mary_hughes Aug 27, 2010

    I only have "graphic properties" when I right click.
    Went to "display settings"
    Set it after 2 or 3 tries to 1024X768 pixcels.....I think that is what it is.
    Color is 32 Bit
    That is very close to normal. I can certainly live with this. Thank you for your help.

I have an 32 inch LCD tv which is about 2 yrs old. Was watching tv when the screen went from normal viewing to zoom1. Followed directions from manual, which said to select imput on the remote then select...


Try this. On your remote control there should be a button that says "Aspect" hit that button and it will probably say "zoom1" or "zoom". If you continue pressing the button it will give you several option. My TV is set to "Wide" which is what I am sure yours should be as well. Or simply continue pressing the button until the picture is at the setting you are accustom too.
I hope this helps with the problem,Jason

For some reason the picture is now too big for the screen. the heads on people are cut off and I can't read all the print at the bottom of the screen. Like Score to basket ball games.


You are most likely viewing the picture in zoom mode. To return to a normal view, look for a button on the remote that says "Wide" press this button until the normal viewing mode is selected.

Ok, first make sure you or someone in family didn't hit the "HD Zoom" on your cable remote or whatever kind of remote you have. On ours - Cable- if you hit it once it is in "Normal" picture which on ours has black around edges on a non Hd channel. Then if you hit it again it Zooms once makes pix very large and if you hit button a third time brings it into a wide screen Zoom that fills the Tv screen. If we are viewing HD channels I put it on Normal which will fill the screen and give you the best HD pix. If we are viewing a NON HD channel, then normal will have black on sides, so I hit the Zoom a couple times to fill in the screen. My brother in law had this problem and couldn't figure out why his Sports channel Scores were always half cut off the screen! it was zoomed in too much for that channel. His sports channel was in HD so needed to be on normal instead of zoomed in.
if it is not the Cable remote then this is a second possible cause:

The other thing that happened to me was - we hardly ever use our original TV remote that came with the TV. but one day our picture looked weird and the cable remote didn't adjust it. One of us had hit the "P SIZE" button on the TV remote. this changes your pix from - 4:3 ratio to 16:9 ratio and vice versa. I put clicked that button and on the TV it shows whether it is at 4:3 or 16:9. For newer wide screen TVs you want that set at 16:9 ratio.

All cable company remotes probably are a bit different so check with your company ... to find out where the zoom control is on their remote.

This might be your problem if the camera is functioning properly then you may have pushed the Disp/Back button in the lower left corner on the five way controller dial. Push the button and the display on the view screen will change.

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.

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.

Distortions in sides


Sounds like you might be in the panoramic display mode... check your remote for a button labelled "WIDE" - it's on the left side just below the "GUIDE" button. Hitting WIDE will cycle through the various viewing modes (normal, zoom and panoramic).
