Question about LG Televison & Video

I have recently bought an LG 26LD350. None of the ratio options set the screen properly. The picture is being stretched and a chunk cut off the left and right sides of the picture. Hope you can advise, thank you.

You will need to set the tv to 4:3 ratio or 16:9 depending on the quailty of video you are trying to view. Most cable companies also use settings in their cable boxes that can be changed for output to the tv. You will need to check the video quailty and set the tv accordingly. EX: 4:3 Standard Definition 16:9, High Definition.

Cannot get full screen picture. seems like I still have a 36 inch tv. It is a 42 inch LG plasma hdtv


It seems like you're expecting a 16:9 ratio picture. If you're sending a 4:3 ratio signal to the TV, you'll get a 4:3 ratio picture. An option would be to use the remote and set the TV to a 16:9 ratio picture, but that'll stretch the picture and make everything look fat. Another option would be to use the remote and zoom in, but that'll chop off the top/bottom of the picture a bit. Either case would be annoying. Some make matters even more annoying, some programs are broadcasted in a 16:9 ratio signal, but the actual picture is really 4:3 ratio. So...... as long as the pictures don't look skinny, fat, or chopped off, just accept it. If you're really that picky, just watch new Blu Ray movies only.

Picture is being cut off at edges eg, Can't read all the written strips on screen.Titles on the edge of screen are cut off


From what you describe your source material is 4:3 aspect ratio but you have the screen set to 16:9 zoom.
You need to goto your picture settings and find the automatic picture option and use that.
This will stretch the screen correctly without cutting of the edges.

How to zoom in on info


When TVs first appeared, they had an picture ratio of 4:3, which matched that of most movie screens at the time. Terrified of losing their business, movie studios struck back with "widescreen" films using 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 ratios. When widescreen TVs started appearing, they emulated those same ratios, but many TV shows (and some movies) were still in 4:3---and we were eventually left with a bit of a mess. Canny manufacturers, including LG, have solved the problem by allowing you to adjust the picture ratio on the TV to fit the program you're watching. If it's not set properly, however, your image will look distorted or cut off. A quick bit of troubleshooting can fix the problem easily.

  1. Press the "Menu" button on the remote and scroll down to the "Option" title (it should be second from the bottom ). Then select "Aspect Ratio." You should see a list of ratio options. You simply need to pick the one which fits the show you're watching.
  2. Choose the 4:3 ratio for older movies and TV programs. You should see a pair of bars on the left and right side of the screen. (That's okay: the bars keep the program in the same proportion in which it was filmed.)
  3. Select the 16:9 ratio for widescreen movies and for more recent shows to match their longer width. For some movies, you may see black bars and the top and bottom of the screen. Again, that allows the movie to be shown in the manner it was filmed.
  4. Pick "Set By Program" to automatically switch the LG TV between 4:3 and 16:9 to match whatever show is on at the time.
  5. Select "Horizon" to horizontally expand the image onscreen. It will fill the whole screen---eliminating the black bars to the left and the right---but it may look distorted.
  6. Use the "Zoom 1" option to zoom the image forward. That will eliminate the black bars at the top or the bottom of the screen, though you will cut off the edges of the image.
  7. Pick the "Zoom 2" button to select a midway point between "Horizon" and "Zoom 1." The picture is stretched, but not as much as with "Horizon," and fills the screen, but doesn't cut off as much as "Zoom 1."
  8. Use the "Cinema Zoom" button to enlarge the picture to fit the screen. This option allows you to adjust the proportion to your liking, rather than use the set proportions of the other aspect options.
  9. Exit the menu when you are done and watch your programming normally.

LG 47'' LCD HDTV 120Hz - Incorrect Picture Width


I just had this problem and got it solved. The issue is that your cable box is likely set to the wrong aspect ratio, so your tv will not be able to display the picture properly without this setting changed. On my cable box(Pace), you need to turn the power off to the cable box using the remote. Then hit the menu button on the remote and a new menu will appear on the screen. Change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and you should be all set. Hope this works for you too.

Pictures don't fill screen on Kodak M820 Digital picture frame


Because a digital photo frame's display ratio doesn't always match the original picture ratio, some pictures cannot be displayed in a satisfactory manner. For example they may be rendered too small, with black borders, or they may be automatically zoomed-in and randomly cropped.

With a computer, this issue can be resolved by using generic photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop, or specialized software like DPF Manager, Digital Frame Master or FrameSize, to properly crop the pictures before transferring them to the digital frame. Without a computer, there is no other option but manually deleting incompatible pictures by using frame's built-in functions.

Also, check the settings and try the "Fit to Screen" but, with some models the width of each landscape image is stretched to achieve an aspect ratio of 16:9, which results in noticeable distortion.

Viewing area is cut off at sides


It's not your tv. It's your cable box setting. Go into settings on your cable remote and set picture size to normal and not zoom or any other setting. Also make sure your picture format is set to 16:9 on your tv. If you cannot figure how to change picture size on your cable box, contact your cable provider. Good Luck.
