First, reboot the Cable/SAT box by disconnecting it from power for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. Upon rebooting, if the screen aspect is still incorrect, then look for the following buttons on the Cable/SAT remote:

Aspect

Zoom

HD Zoom

Ratio

(#) symbol under the 9 key

that did not fix it. on the cable remote I don't see those buttons, on the Sceptre I see the aspect button
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 6 months ago

Did you try the Aspect button on the Sceptre remote??

Also who is your cable provider/what's the brand and model of the box??
