Usually on your remote control is an option to change screen size or resolution. If not, the on your remote go to "setting" or "menu" or something that will get you into tv setup. once you get there you should be able to set you tv to Standare, WIDE, WIDE zoom, letterbox, or some other setting. I suggest you experiment with what looks best to you If you are seeing the bars at top and bottom you re currently in "standard" mode.

Why does my TV show discolored vertical bands and can I fix it at home?


The T-con board controls the picture elements on the screen. Usually replacing this board will solve the problem. If you can touch the screen and the lines disappear and later reappear, that says the screen itself is defective. The only fix is to replace the entire screen.

Disney princess tv suddenly narrowed the visible part of the screen. Now everything is squished into a two in wide band with all the rest of the screen is black.


if that 2 band according to you from top to bottom,it has a defective vertical stage.if this two band appears one on top and one at the bottom,it`s on vertical stage.leaky capacitors,resistance changed or resistor devalued ang ic`s, are too weak to amplify a signal to make the screen complete....

Black box on screen


Without a picture of it it's hard to say what you mean. Sometimes on a CRT TV the vertical scan doesn't fill the screen, but that would cause a black band both top and bottom. The usual cause is a capacitor drying out. But only a qualified tech should look into that.

My new lg 3d tv is closng on top bottom and sides is there anything i can do to cure the problem


Could you provide more information? What do you mean when you say, "closing?" Do you mean there is a black band around the picture? If so that means the original picture is recorded at a lower pixel density than your TV will display.
In the past most TV program signals provided a picture dimensions (in computer standards) very roughly 600 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall. What this means is that a picture of that pixel size will display as a small, squarish image slightly wider than it is tall on a (now) standard 1080p LCD television--which produces an image 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high.
That would be nearly unwatchable (picture too small) except for the fact that most TVs compensate for the relatively small size of "standard definition TV (SD TV, as opposed to HDTV) by enlarging the image so that the top and bottom edges of the picture touch the top and bottom of the TV screen. This will leave black bands on either side of the picture. Some LCD TVs will automatically stretch BOTH dimensions of the image, which yields a distorted, "sqaushed" image.
All my comments above apply to both standard LCD and 3D-LCD TVs, by the way.

How do I remove the black band on the top and bottom of my tv


If you have cable or dish network, They make the program fit better to your TV. If you have a HDTV 16;9 ratio you will get that too.(black bands) It's the way the companies send the info to your TV. You can change the aspect ratio on your TV's settings. (full screen). Hope that helps.

How do I get the picture to be as big as the tv


The picture is controled by the zoom on the tv remote and on the reciever remote. if you're looking at Wide screen containt the your screen will be black on the top and bottom, zooming will make it fit but you will loose some left and right info. Only HD containt formated for home tv's will, like Oasis, or National geographics, ect will give you full screen. Wide screen is for Movie theaters not TV. This realy sucks but to get a large Wide Screen Picture, You have to buy a supper large tv otherwise, the Wide screen image is small and wide and preaty much anoying with a short wide picture with black bands on top and below..
Sorry. We all have to live with this stuff.

The bottom of the screen is black-as though there is a border along the bottom. I can't find a horrizontal adjustment anywhere.


It is a vertical issue, not horizontal.

Is the picture you have complete? Is there a black band along the top as well? If so, it may be because you are providing an HD aspect ratio of 16:9 instead of the TV native 4:3.

Try hooking up a VCR and watching a tape. Do you still have the black band on the bottom?

Picture is too big for screen


Go into the setup menu of the TV, and you'll find a category called DISPLAY or ZOOM. That's where you can change the aspect ratio so that it fits on the screen. You'll probably get a gray band on the top and bottom of the screen due to the re-sizing.
