Run it through the different 'MODE' settings. it may really be on zoom, or just confused.

Also, try unplugging it for a minute. plug it back in and see if it's better.

My toshiba 40e210u lcd tv won't show full image on screen


The Aspect ratio of the TV could be on the wrong setting for the image you are trying to view. Widescreen's standard ratio is 16:9 ensure the TV is not set to zoom, 4:3, or pan & scan in the picture menu of your TV.

If the picture looks normal except it's just missing the edges or looks squashed or looks like it is zoomed in from the normal image then aspect ratio is probably the cause.

I have an akai 52, it just happen, the screen looks to big for tv and its like its stuck in a panorama mode also....how can it adjust this? i have tried everything with the menu button and nothing seems to...


Check for a button that says 'pic size' or 'zoom' or 'aspect' or something similar on your remote. Most newer TV's have this funvtion but it's almost always controlled by the remote, not the TV menus.

Hi, Look in TV menu for settings of screen. ( aspect setting) 4:3 , wide screen mode , Normal (full), Zoom mode. You want Normal (full) mode. Good luck.

Wide screen mode won't go back to "normal".


Was exactly what you said. The cable box settings were in wide mode. Couldn't figure it out at all. Funny thing was too.. on my cable box remote, the button under the #9 button is the # button.. it doesn't say zoom at all.. but it totally controls the zoom.

So thanks for that.. AND thanks for saying "under the #9 on the cable remote" instead of just saying .. the zoom button.

Thanks again!!!

Picture too big


It seems as if your tv is in "crop", "Zoom", or "full" mode. Select letterbox, normal, or full-screen mode. Look in the manual for exact instructions.

TV is stuck in expanded picture mode & won't return to normal


seems to me as a Sony TV. The sony tv has this feature ready in the menu. you can do zoom out ,standard etc,
But the real problem comes when the tv is turn off and then you get back to turn on the tv (lets say next day)and you find the same big heads.
what you have to do is going to the menu same thing but this time look for an option is called picture size default. This option make learn the memory what size you want custom when tv is turn on.This function is in the same page as the picture size page (refer to the user's manual) but has to be the default mode where you want the change.
The problem with sizes now days is some shows fit perfect some others not. and besides that the cable box has those features too(change size of the screen)

What i do in this sony tv to start first is keeping it in the standard size in the tv menu and i defaulted too.

when some size adjustment is needed i do it in the cable box remote control .Once again this example i do it in SONY tv, Maybe you have to post the problem again if the tv is different brand.

Tv stuck on zoom


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please check your cable box settings first. Sometimes the remotes have a picture size button on them, and the in-laws could have pressed that by accident. Check the TV settings, press Menu Button & then go to WINDOW/IMAGE SIZE. Now select normal size.

Also check the settings of the converter box (if you are using it). The boxes also have a peculiar problem: Unless users manually change settings from show to show, the picture from many stations either won’t fill the screen, or it will be so big that part of the picture is cut off by the edges of the screen. The solution is to press the “zoom” button on the remote that comes with the converter box. That will expand the picture so it fills the screen. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to go to the service menu. To go to the service menu please start with the TV off and press mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power the remote on. Now the TV will come on with the menu displayed and from there you can change the settings as required.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Samsung 1080p LCD TV stuck on zoom


I had the same problem. It's the default setting on your HD cable box. You have to go under the cable box's "settings" and switch it from "Zoom 1" to "Normal." I found the solution on Samsung's webpage. Can't tell you how much that was driving me nuts.
