Re: TV SCREEN PICTURE SMALLER
Yes you have a problem I'm afraid in the pincussion or horizontal width circuit. These circuits usually have alot of high voltage in them and is not a safe place to be experiementing around with. Most of the time, with a problem like this, there are bad capacitors or a correction transistor has failed. If the set is over a few years buy a new one. Good Luck

Many units will self adjust the image size, but the size of the image you will see depends on what size it was originally recorded in. You can change it in the settings of the TV but most likely it will not go bigger if it was shot smaller.
On your tv remote click on the "wide" button and change the setting. Also you could try the setting on your cable box that pertains to the size of your screen. If all that fails, go to the website of your tv maker and see if they could send you a manual or give you advice on how to make screen smaller.
this is normal and this feature is for wide screen programs! normal shows and games will lose part of the top of the screen sides and bottem because it zooms in on whats in the middle of screen! hope this helps
If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.
make sure your hd cable connection from your cable box is going to an hd connection to your tv.[via hdmi, dvi,or componant.] if you have a different hook up such as rca out or coax out, these are not hd connections and you are probably streching out the picture.look at the rear of the tv & cable box and see how the connections are.the hd hook up to the hd input should make the picture the right size only if it's set on the hd input channel.hook up the dvd player to a aux/line in or video/source input and try changing the picture size. you may have to play around with it till you get it the way you want.
hope this helps.
