That is probably due to the transmission or aspect ratio of a dvd etc and perfectly normal but annoying!
Try setting your TV to automatic aspect ratio, if it has one.
Happy New Year.

Daewoo DTQ-19TV1fc aspect ratio changed to letterbox. How do I restore it to full screen?


get the on screen menu on the screen
scroll around till you see aspect ratio and click on that use the buttons to change ( you will see the changes on the screen)
click ok and exit when satisfied
Fir aspect ration to change there can be a few reasons
some tv stations produce movies in the wrong ratio and it shows up for the movie as black edges or tall figures or fat figures ( change channel to verify)
or there can be a fault occurring in the board of the set that will not hold preset aspect ratios

What causes my aspect to constantly change? My tv or my cable box?


It could be both.

If you set your TV to Auto, then it will try to 'best guess' the correct picture shape based on what's displayed on screen. That's okay in the lab, but in the real world where there's too much changing then it's not so good.

The other thing could be the box and the TV channel you happen to be watching. If you have the box's aspect ratio set wrong i.e. to a different picture shape to the TV, then it will squash or stretch pictures.

Set your box to match the TV shape. The two main choices are Widescreen (16:9) or the old picture shape 4:3

Set your TV on a fixed aspect ratio: Either Widescreen if it is a 16:9 set, or Normal if it is a 4:3 set.

Jvc lt-47em59 picture too large in all aspect modes


Larger as in -- the screen looks fatter. 4:3 stretched to 16:9 or as in Larger as in, screen is longer but thinner? 16:9 / 10 fitting onto ratio 4:3?

Asuming... its the second one -- that ur screen is box 4:3 and the picture is huge 16:9 which is why u need to "zoom out" to get the full picture -- are u sure some idiot didnt mess with the settings and make the tv "zoom in" if it isnt a aspect ratio issue?

... if it is a aspect ratio issue, and ur using 4:3 (small old box televisions) there should be a ratio setting either on ur television OR on ur set top box, that would by defualt with digital tv have wide screen 16:9 -- id suggest finding the settings either on the tv or the set top box or...

just get a bigger tv that supports 16:9 cheap for 50 bucks.

My toshiba 40e210u lcd tv won't show full image on screen


The Aspect ratio of the TV could be on the wrong setting for the image you are trying to view. Widescreen's standard ratio is 16:9 ensure the TV is not set to zoom, 4:3, or pan & scan in the picture menu of your TV.

If the picture looks normal except it's just missing the edges or looks squashed or looks like it is zoomed in from the normal image then aspect ratio is probably the cause.

How do i get a full picture on my secnium hd tv?


Hello

To get the picture full screen come to screen aspect ratio settings.

The Screen Format feature allows you to change how the image of a 4:3 picture

is displayed on your 16:9 screen. The options are Normal, Zoom or Stretch. If

your TV receives an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image can be displayed in

one of three ways:

Normal The image of a 4:3 video signal is centered with black bars on the
right and left sides of the screen

To get ito this setting mode
Enter the main menu and go to preferences select the screen format; option-2; and change the settings to get a full picture.
OK.

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.

Signs that the bulb in a dlp is going out


A DLP Lamp will fail in two ways. 1.The glass tube housing the filament will shatter and the TV will not turn on. 2. The lamp has many hours of use on it and will gradually grow dimmer. At no time will the lamp cause any picture defect. Check your Cable or Sat box for the correct aspect ratio as well as the TV aspect ratio. Chances are the aspect ratio in either system is set incorrectly. If the gray borders are uniform then the aspect ratio is not set properly. If this occurs on certain channels but not others then the particular channel is broadcasting in the 4:3 aspect ratio and there is nothing wrong with your set.

The whole picture does not show on the screen; faces on the edge are cut off


It's one or two problems. It depends on if you're using a cable box. First try to see if your aspect ratio is on full using the JVC remote. Just Press the Aspect button. Then if it's on full and this doesn't correct the problem it may be your cable box. If it's time Warner go into the settings by pressing the settings button on the remote twice I believe tehn go to display and select the select and check each option picture size (change to normal if you have a 4:3 t.v. or stretch if you have a 16:9 (wide screen T.V.) Then go to aspect ratio and select again eih 4:3 or 16:9. If your have a hdtv cable box select output resolution and make sure there is a bulllet next to each setting for 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i. Then exit out of the cable settings and your picture should be ok. Now if you have the hdtv package keep in mind it is normal to have the black side bars on each side of the picture only if your watching one ofthe high definition channel network that is not actual being broadcast in hdtv or recorded in hdtv.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
