The screen picture is not full size. I have significant black borders around the picture. I am using a universal remote from Genesis and can't find any menu item to fix the problem?!? Thanks for your help.

    Time, theme, search. I do not see a "video option."

  • catherine539 Jan 02, 2011

    Although I received an email, I don't see that you posted a new response?!?

  • catherine539 Jan 02, 2011

    ry ... I didn't expand the "more comments" button. I just looked at your imageshack photo and when I push "menu" my screen looks nothing like this at all?!? What I get looks identical to the "guide" information?!? Perhaps I need to push something on my receiver?!? I'm going out for several hours now and will respond when I return. Thankjs! Catherien

Do you see a format or Aspect button the remote? If yes then keep pressing the button till you get full screen. It will toggle the set through various screen sizes and one of them should give you a full screen image.

    In that case can you please get me an image of the remote that you are using so that I can see if there is an alternate button to perform this function? You can upload the image to imageshack.us and get me the link.

    The image is too small even when fully zoomed. I can hardly see whats on the buttons.

    Ok. It looks like there is no button on the remote that can handle the aspect ratio function. Press Menu->Select the video option and tell me what all options you see under it.

    when you hit menu, you should see an option menu in it.Its below the time menu.I see it in the manual as well.

    Thats weird coz I can see it. See my response posted approximately 20 minutes ago.

    No its not necessary to push anything on the receiver. If you cannot see anything like that then I am afraid you are gonna have to get the original remote from LG for this tv. Call them at 1 (800) 243-0000 and follow their instructions to order it. Once you get it, let me know and I will help you resolve this issue.

Black border with some channels


Hi,
if you mean the left and right sides of screen, look for a button on remote might be labeled several things, like picture size, aspect etc.. the borders pop up when you go to a non high def channel. some chs put borders all around the picture in those cases you won't be able to get rid of those.

The picture is not "full" screen. It's as if there's a black border around it. How do I fix this?


I have a 50" rear projection mitsubishi. These are not "widescreen" tvs and some programs come out like that so as not to cut out any picture. Mine will adjust to utilize the entire screen though. Go to "menu" and check your settings for the screen size because they are probably set wrong--check all video settings.
