1 Answer

Picture to Large for Screen

My set has an image that is like a zoomed picture. I do have a digital/HD box set so my television contrls for those function are disabled. Is there a focus for these sets to realign the projector? Thanks in advance.

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

How to resize picture on a magnavox mwc20t6

Look for a setting called Aspect Ratio. It will include options like 4:3, 16:9, Zoom 1, and Zoom 2. Then click through the options to select the correct one for your program. Usually older SD programs will use either 4:3 or Zoom 1, while HD programs will be set to 16x9 for Widescreen hi-def viewing. There should be a button on your remote labelled Aspect Ratio or Picture that can toggle through these image modes.

Jvc lt-47em59 picture too large in all aspect modes

Larger as in -- the screen looks fatter. 4:3 stretched to 16:9 or as in Larger as in, screen is longer but thinner? 16:9 / 10 fitting onto ratio 4:3?

Asuming... its the second one -- that ur screen is box 4:3 and the picture is huge 16:9 which is why u need to "zoom out" to get the full picture -- are u sure some idiot didnt mess with the settings and make the tv "zoom in" if it isnt a aspect ratio issue?

... if it is a aspect ratio issue, and ur using 4:3 (small old box televisions) there should be a ratio setting either on ur television OR on ur set top box, that would by defualt with digital tv have wide screen 16:9 -- id suggest finding the settings either on the tv or the set top box or...

just get a bigger tv that supports 16:9 cheap for 50 bucks.

I just bought a new insignia LCD TV and the picture does not cover the entire screen. Instead of the 32 inch. diagnal I should, I have a 24 inch picture. Is there something I can do about it?

The "picture size" on the TV needs to be set correctly. You should have a "ZOOM" button on your remote. Press it a few times, cycling through the options... see if this fixes the problem.

Be advised, many (most) HD channels do not show HD content all the time. At the broadcasters discretion, they may choose to ADD the black bars to either side (and/or top an bottom) of the image. This is what the "ZOOM" button is actually for... to allow you to correct this, filling the screen with the image.

*Note: many cable box have a "FORMAT" or "HD ZOOM" button. When used in conjunction with the TVs zoom feature, you can end up having one device set correctly, while the other is not. The result is often a picture that is expanded far beyond the bounds of the displayable area of the screen. If you can not find a solution using the "ZOOM" button, pick the setting which shows the most image. Now adjust the cable box setting (FORMAT / HD ZOOM).

How do i get a full picture on my secnium hd tv?

Hello

To get the picture full screen come to screen aspect ratio settings.

The Screen Format feature allows you to change how the image of a 4:3 picture

is displayed on your 16:9 screen. The options are Normal, Zoom or Stretch. If

your TV receives an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image can be displayed in

one of three ways:

Normal The image of a 4:3 video signal is centered with black bars on the
right and left sides of the screen

To get ito this setting mode
Enter the main menu and go to preferences select the screen format; option-2; and change the settings to get a full picture.
OK.

How do i adjust the picture on a GE D52GW12 52 in. Rear Projection TV? The picture is too large.

There should be a zoom button on the remote control. Each time you press it the size of the picture changes. If there is not a button on the remote, there should be a on screen menu display that allows the size to be adjusted. If you are using a HD cable box or HD satellite receiver, they also have picture zoom options.
I hope this helps

Picture too large for screen

It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.

The picture is too large for screen and is cut off on top and bottom. Possibly on the sides too.

There is a button the remote control that will resize images. However this could also indicate that a tv is in the wrong input and or connected to the set top box (ie cable box or satellite receiver) incorrectly. It can also indicate that the set top box is set to the wrong resolution.

Buttons on the remote control could be view mode, aspect or format, and # hd zoom.

The tv could be in the input for the rf connector or the composite cables instead of being on the input for the component or hdmi cables.

The tv could be connected to the set top box with RCA cables or a coax cable instead of being connected with component or an hdmi cable.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
