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.

    Um, Ok, let's try this again....
    My TV screen is too wide/tall....i.e., if there are subtitles I can only see the first sentence, people's heads get cut off etc. Like I said I went through the controls and tried to do it manually(set it to normal repeatedly) and nothing happened. Basically, what you just told me to do I had told you I had already done. SO, aside from going into the settings(which, sorry, is the obvious thing to do and has been done over and over again and didn't work or I wouldn't be asking) can you give me ANY indication as to what I might be able to do to fix the ratio on my screen? I sit the way the cables are set up in the back, at this point the only wa I even get a picture on the screen it needs to be set to the comp setting as opposed to the TV,Cable,AV settings....I'm just irritated so sorry if I seem crabby, I just want to watch a movie where I can see the heads of the people on the screen,grrrrr. Thanks.

    Hi, There is another thing you can try. Set the TV to 720p instead of 1080p. Hope this works for you. Good luck.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

PICTURE TO BIG AT THE SCREEN.CAN NOT SEE THE PICTERS MARGIN AT THE SCREEN.HOW TO ADJUST(REDUCING PICTURE SIZE ON SCREEN)?


1) Power your wide-screen TV on and turn to a channel that is displayed with bars on the side. You need to leave this channel on to ensure you have properly adjusted your wide-screen TV.

2)
Find in your TVs settings where you can "stretch" the picture. Refer to your wide-screen TVs owner's manual for specific instructions. Some TVs may not refer to this adjustment as "stretch." You will be able to find all the information your looking for in the owners manual.

3) Adjust settings back to normal if you want to watch a program shown in 16:9 format. Keeping the screen "stretched" will cause programs shown in 16:9 format appear zoomed in, making the picture look really different.

How do we get the picture back to normal? The picture seems to be stuck in a zoom mode. The wide button does not fix this.


its probably a zoom setting on your cable or sat box.

sat - push the format button at the top or bottom of the remote to switch modes

cable -
go in to the cablebox menu, go to video settings, make sure its set to 1080i and 480i for 4:3 over ride, not stretch or zoom

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!!!

I have a vizio vw32L40a and the screen is too wide. there are only wide and stretch settings, no normal setting. the screen is too wide for the tv.


6/09 I had the same problem when receiving the signal over the air with the input set to TV. Perhaps the signal strength or type was varying. At any rate, after I hooked up HD cable and watch from that input, the problem no longer occurs.

Left side and right side are blury.


With projection sets, there is typically several settings for which you can display an output. You probably have a "wide" or "stretch" as a setting for the tv. What you want is normal, or some setting which doesn't result in a stretch. Widescreen projection tv's try to stretch 4:3 output into the widescreen setting, but usually this just results in the middle being in focus, and the outer 20% to be stretched on each side, bluring the edges.

Try to manipulate as many "tv settings" as possible. For most sets this is only available with the original remote. If you don't have the original remote, changing these settings could prove difficult.

Picture resolution problem


Greetings Greinberg,
My name is Mark and I will be glad to assist you. It sounds like they have un-installed the video driver, this can be rectified by going to Hp.com/support and go to your model number. From there I suggest you download all the drivers for your model. It is possible they have not installed all the drivers associated with that model this is a safeguard. When you download the drivers save them to your documents file then open them all when you finish the downloads. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Be mucho blessed,
Mark
