The Vizio HDTV sets are all software driven. With the remote control select the menu option.
Then under the picture tab. look for the picture format full screen, wide screen. select the wide screen option. This setting should fill the screen.

Hope this helps

Make the picture fill the screen


The TV will produce a picture that is set by the aspect ratio of the film. You can however expand to an unatural size to fill the whole screen.

Change TV resolutions to view slide shows


Nope. The picture resolution has to be 1080 to fill the screen completely. Using stretch and zoom will distort the low rez pictures. No option to change resolution on the TV itself.

LG 55ln5700 picture does not fill screen


Go to picture/video settings and make sure your screen size is set for 16:9 or wide screen ratio.............

If you have dish or cable go into menu settings and check and make sure the same is true

Sometimes on the remote there is a picture size/mode button you can press to change the screen size

Normal or Wide would be widescreen
Stretch is zoomed picture that fills the screen
Letterbox is the square box screen

It sounds like a picture setting problem to me
I would try those things first

Picture not filling screen


If it is a screen setting, wide screen, movie, other setting it may be as simple as that it would be a matter of menu settings. or if it is trying to decipher HD and it is not connected to an HD Reciever then it would not fill the screen.

Download pictures from finepix s2000 hd


If you are not able to find your connecting cable. and i am assuming your need is to transfer the data to comp. Well what you can do is you can take out the memory card and fix it into the card reader (you will get a card reader vey cheap anywhere.). and connect it to your comp. Now your card will work as a flash drive and you can transfer data easily then... Hope this helps you out.. :)

I have a Pioneer VSX-D912. I just switched to HD Sat. When I hook into the component ports, I get no picture. When I use the DVD port I do get a picture.


I have exaclty the same problem. DVD into comp in 1, and my Homecast HT8000 into comp in 2 on my D912.

The dvd gets a picture.

The TV does not.

Looking at the settings I have "Component video Input" set correctly.

I'll add that when I do switch from DVD to TV, I get a scrabled vision of what is on TV for about half a second befoe the TV itself says "No, I can't display that" and gives me the blue screen of 'no signal'

Dynex 42" HDTV - pressed "Comp" button now cant get back to TV


Press the TV button on the remote. You are confusing the Comp button with the Input button which allows you to switch between input ports.

Unable to transfer pictures


easier way to transfer these to comp is via bluethooth.
get a bluetooth dongle from an electronics shop, load it to your comp, pair phone to comp and then simply send via bluetooth from the phone to the comp.
No messy cables and works with all bluetooth phones ( ie not brand specific )
