My picture is too big...all the time. No matter what setting it is on it's till too big. This has happened all of a sudden.
42 in LG plasma.
As an example, peoples heads are chopped off.
News channels with info lines on the bottom of screen cannot be seen.
I'm at my wits end.
Nothing in the manual addresses this problem.
in menu options the "horizonal" option cannot be highlighted.
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.
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.

The question is ambiguous from the standpoint of signal strength or television settings. If the signal strength drops the television wont do anything till it drops below a point that it pixelates. Then you will see big squares with blotches of color and the picture appears jerky. If that is not present, it is a good thing. The television settings are a matter of personal taste.
Check your display size. It sounds to me like you have it set on ZOOM. On your remote there should be a button labeled PICTURE. Scroll through the setting till you see 16x9 and set it to this. Keep in mind that some commercials and programs are not filmed in widescreen so the picture will be in the 4.3 aspect ratio, "square"
Can you give me a little more information. Does the the pwr LED blink..or is the picture blinking...does it happen all the time...does the picture blink once and go back to normal...is it intermittant? Does it happen when using the DVD..or just on cable...do you have cable...or satellite......
