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

Find any buttons with those labels and use them to attempt to correct the picture size. If you are unable to find those buttons, or they don't help, then the settings are hidden deeper in the Cable Box and I will need the BRAND and MODEL of the cable box.

TV is connected only to an antenna. No cable or satellite box. I have tried & can access the service menu on the TV, but have no idea what all the Parameter Names stand for or how to set their number codes. Don't even know if ratio can be set on service menu. Please advise further.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 6 months ago

Service MENU is not the place to be. Please double check the model number off the back of the TV and reply back (the one you posted is not correct).
