I do not see anything that resembles pic size. i would think it would be on the setting button, but that does not help me.

On the INSIGNIA remote below the 9 button there is a ZOOM button, does that button do anything?

no, My remont has a settings button, but when I go to this program I see nothing about picture size, the fact that it used to be right makes me think I have done something stupid to cause it to have the borders on each side of the screen

You do not have the insignia remote that came with the tv when you bought it?
