Customer Question
Hi, we...

Hi, we are a Samsung house. I just bought a Samsung 43" tv 6 series, model UN43MU6300. I cant adjust the screen size. I have to go into custom and cant figure out how to adjust the screen size. TV is cutting off heads or not showing writing on bottom. Commercials do not fill out the screen, some do, others dont. Tried to watch HBO thorough Prime, picture doesnt fill up screen. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your 43?

HDMI is plugged in, thats it

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

No. had this problem since purchase

Most often this is caused by the cable box and depending on your box or cable supplier the method may vary but first look on the cable box remote for a button that may be called something like ; zoom, size, format, aspect , HDzoom etc. , often has a pound (#) symbol on it or a star and sits below the digits 7 or 9 , try to press that button repeatedly to toggle between the different aspect ratio`s.
If that doesn`t correct it then press the HOME button on the tv`s remote and then go to Settings (gear icon)>> Picture >>>Picture Size Settings and set it to Fit to Screen
Between the 2 remotes (tv and cable box)you should be able to find the correct aspect ratio /format.

If you cannot find that button on the remote then this will be in the cable box menu , let me know
