SOURCE: Picture is too big for screen

Go into the setup menu of the TV, and you'll find a category called DISPLAY or ZOOM. That's where you can change the aspect ratio so that it fits on the screen. You'll probably get a gray band on the top and bottom of the screen due to the re-sizing.

I have a Scientific Atlanta cable box w/ Time Warner. I followed the instructions below for the cable box. Somehow it reset my picture and I can now read the ticker at the bottom of the screen and the different picture sizes seem to work properly. Good Luck.

How do I adjust tv screen size to fit laptop? lap top projection is to large for operating properly. to big.


Assuming you have a flat screen 16x9 TV, make sure it is set to screen fit so that there is minimal overscan. The button should be called pic size or aspect ratio. Also set your laptop to the same resolution as your TV or as close as possible to a supported resolution.

I have a TH-50PY700H TV linked to an M8S KitKat 4.4.2 Kodi TV Box but the top & bottom of the display is cut off. Can anyone help pls.


If the signal is a product of the ott box than go to settings and find display. It will tell you how to make screen size to fit your screen.

Screen zoomed in zoom out


Go to Display settings and make sure Auto Detect is off.
Then if it's off or after reset go to HDTV settings and select 1920x1080, if there is no picture wait till it comes back and select 1360x768. Just keep going down till you find one that works.
It's a bit of a bummer some TV's out there have no option to disable the overscan. Also a bigger shame that a lot of TV's are sold as 1080p yet only have a 1366x768 native resolution.
However this solution should fix overscan issues if it can't be done through the TV.

Pc resolution doesnt fit on screen


There is probably an overscan option in the TV menu. Make sure that is off. Otherwise, adjust the resolution on the computer to fit correctly.

White stripe on screen


Unfortunately it seems that each time I turn the tv on and off it resets the screen position and I have to adjust it each time.

I would assume that my set would remember the settings.
Use Picture Size, not Picture fit. Set it to 16:9, instead of Fit To Screen. There's a handy button the the remote for this: P-Size. And the setting sticks between shut-offs.

What you are seeing is called "overscan", extra information that most broadcast stations send, because most old TV's were set to zoom-in/crop the signal they received. So.. with new TVs, like your Samsung, you get the choice between size "Fit to Screen" which is 1-to-1, for pixel-accurate inputs like Blu-Ray and DVD, and size "16:9" which is really "support for overscan", for old, less precise signals like broadcast.

Panasonic viera doesn't display computer correctly


I have had what is fundamentally the same problem. I have a desktop PC that I am plugging in to my Panasonic Viera TX-32LZD80. I am using DVI connection plugged in to HDMI port.

The solution is fairly simple; use the Menu button on the TV remote to get to the Main Menu for the TV and then select Setup which should be the fourth of four options. This will get you to the Setup Menu for the TV for the current channel. Look for the Picture Overscan option, it will very probably be set to On if you have the problem of %5 or so of display being missing on all sides.

Switch Picture Overscan to Off.

This immediately should solve your problem. A note of warning on this is that I suspected this was the problem but when I first looked at the Setup Menu I could not find the Picture Overscan option.

If you are unable to find the Picture Overscan option then trying fiddling with the Aspect settings. You will probably find it set to Auto. Switch it to 16:9 and you should find the Picture Overscan option will be available from the Setup Menu.

Hope it works for you.

PICTURE TO LARGE FOR THE SCREEN AND ZOOM ISNT FIXING IT


Your TV set may have settings for picture size ratios but also if you have cable or sattelite service, they too may have these settings. Try both TV and cable remocons for proper adjustment
