How to widen my curtis 42 inch flat sreen top and bottom


Some TV's have a zoom function others do not. The program you're watching controls whether the top and bottom of the screen have black bars and is not the fault of the TV. Widening the picture cuts off a lot of the viewable picture and distorts the image. Circles tend to be oval. If your TV has a zoom function, use it.

I have a 42'' dynex tv, without an instruction manual. The picture is too large for the tv and I need to find out how to fix the pixels, I have tried every button and even all the choices in the menu....


You can get your manual here:
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Dynex-DX-LCD42HD-TVs-manual/id/22974bh131/t/2/
This is for the DX-LCD42HD-09.

The ZOOM button on the top of the remote is the one you want to keep pressing until you get the picture size you want.
If you are using a HDMI cable for HD, the HD channels should fill in the screen automatically. The non-HD channels would have the empty spaces on the sides for 4:3 screen format.
Best to keep it on normal mode, so the top and the bottom don't get cut off.

My TV picture cuts off on the top and bottom


Check what format you are in. 4:3 is like a regular tv. Sides will be cut off in this format on a widescreen tv. 16:9 zoomed will cut of top & bottom slightly. You want just regular 16:9. No zoom.

My picture doesn't fit my LG Plasma 42" TV.


Try going to your LG menu , go to screen option and take it off zoom. This could be your problem.

My tv zooms in and changes the format.


This is normal - you are zooming in on the picture. Most people use the zoom feature to "stretch" a widescreen movie so it will fit the screen.

On your remote control you should see a zoom or picture size button. Try changing this back to 16:9. I expect that your screen got zoomed either on purpose or by accident by someone. Some people zoom in the picture to eliminate the aspect ratio areas at the top and bottom and/or sides.

This should be your problem, just un-zoom the picture
