TV picture doesn't fit in screen no matter what the setting

Hello, I have an Insignia 32" flat screen and no matter what setting I put it on (i.e. cinema, wide, normal) the picture doesn't fit in the screen. Everyone's heads get cut off and it's very annoying.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

Kristi

    Ok, next clarification request. Who is your cable provider? If you can tell me the "model" of your cable box, that would also be helpful. (It should say on the front)

    Hello Kr1,



    Just to make sure before I try and help, but are you hooked up to a cable box, satellite box, or over the air?



    Also, if a DVD player is hooked up to the television, do you still get the same "cut off" problem?

Ok, so I think I have your solution :)

You're actually my first when it comes to this site, so hopefully this fixes your problem!

Step 1 - Turn off the cable box, but leave the TV on

Step 2 - On the front of the 8300HD, press the "guide" button and the "info" button at the same time

Step 3 - Choose "HD" for High Definition, or "SD" for standard definition. (Sounds like you're HD?)

Step 4 - Choose the aspect ratio 16:9

Step 5 - Choose "progressive scan" if it asks you.

Now press the "power" button on the box, does that fix it?

The score on football games on fox and cbs are halfway off the screen. How do I fix this?


Hello

It is likely that you have the "picture size" set to a mode that does not match what the channel is actually providing.

Go to the Menu options on your TV and then look for the Picture options. Change the size between the different options (typically 16:9, 4:3, Wide, Fit to Screen, etc.) and see which mode works best for the Fox and CBS broadcasts.

It is likely you have the TV set to Wide or Fit to Screen. Both change the settings to make 4:3 broadcasts fill the screen of a wide screen TV. Changing this to 16:9 should allow you to see the information on the sides and bottom of the screen again.

what are you using on the HDMI cable. you may need to change the setting on that and not the tv. or you have the tv stuck in Zoom. if it is stuck in Zoom you will need to rest the tv back to factory setting.

Insignia 32" 720p Flat-Panel LCD HDTV - High-Gloss Black Picture is too big for screen ,cut off all around, top, bottom and sides. Can't read things on screen, heads cut off etc. I've gone through...


try checking the menu setting on your Dish Network, there may be a television format in that menu set up, if it is only when a dvd player is playing, then check the format on that, so on so forth... that is one place to start, check if it is local (TV) or if it is from attached component ( Dish dvr/ dvd etc). also refer to your owner's manual.. if all else fails, call customer service @ insignia

Picture problem


If all your wanted is to widen the picture then just push aspect or format on your remote control and put it on either 16:9 or full. But if your referring to HD then an HD picture fills the screen by itself no matter what setting you have the tv set to. If the screen isnt full then the program your watching isnt broadcasting in HD at that time. A common misconception is that because its an HD tv or an HD channel that it always should show in HD. This isnt true. It goes by the broadcast

Since you don't mention how you're receiving the signal, I'm assuming you use a cable box or computer. Adjust the output settings (e.g. 720p, 1080p) on the box and then adjust your TV settings. If it's a computer, you'll need to adjust the video card settings to a compatible aspect ratio (e.g. 1366x768) for the desktop to display properly on the TV. Details can be found in the owner's manual.
