Sounds like you've changed the aspect ratio to a 4:3 and you need to put it back to a 16:9. Go into your menu and find the sub menu that allows you to change "format" or "aspect ratio". Adjust that until you have it at 16:9 and see if that corrects your problem. Good Luck Bill

Black bar on the top and bottom during watching the tv

Hello

If you are watching television and you see black lines on the left and right sides of the screen, check to see if you are watching an HD broadcast or a standard definition broadcast. You can do this by bringing up the TV guide menu on your remote. If the show is in HD, it should take up the full screen. However, if it is not HD, bars will be present on the left and right of the screen. That is because standard definition programing is in 4x3, which will not take up the entire screen.

If the picture you are watching not only has black bars on the sides, but on the tops and bottoms of the screen as well, your "Zoom" mode has somehow gotten off-kilter. Press the "Zoom" button on the remote until the image appears correct. If this does not work, power down the television, wait a few moments, and power the TV back on. The image should be correct now.

If the image on the screen looks stretched or squished, this is because your HD cable receiver is not set up properly for your widescreen television. Press the "Menu" button on the receiver

Picture ratio

Programs that are recorded in 16:9 format appear full screen on a 16:9 TV. A program recorded in a standard 4:3 format will either be stretched to fit the screen or have side bars to fill the screen area. In the case of HD channels, the black side bars are part of the picture which is being broadcasted.

My 32 inch samsung lcd tv has got faint black lines running down the screen ,its nearly 4 years old but i expected it to last longer than that,and ive had sky hd box recently would that have anything todo...

Are these lines on both side of the screen or what location are they in? They can be caused by watching 4:3 television with the black bars on both sides. Watching 16:9 full screen HD wont cause issues with that. If only on the sides there is not much you can do except put a pure white screen on the TV and leave that on for at least 6 hours. This will age the panel a little but in theroy wil even the pixel burn you have to make the lines less noticable. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you

Screen shows black at top and bottom from flip video hd

I think you can use doremisoft flip converter that can crop your black bars and other addition editing functions, such as cut clips, join videos, add special effect and so on.

Comcast Causing Purple/Green Hum Bars

this is normally caused by voltage on the coaxial cable which simply can be solve by a surge protector with a cable in and out.. but this is just a way to passify the issue. More than likely there is a bad ground either in your house or on the comcast line

Black side bars on hd channels

You may have to refer to the instruction manual for details.

There should be in the menu set-up an option to set the aspect ratio for the different broadcast modes. Normaly, when viewing a 4:3 picture on an HD 16:9 set, the sides will be cut off, otherwise the picture will be stretched or compensated.
