Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Can you please tell me the actual model number from the back of the tv?

Are you saying the picture seems to be cut off on the sides? Can you tell me how you get your stations (antenna, basic cable or cable/satellite box)?
