  • Press the [Format] button on the remote control repeatedly to select the screen format that will optimize the picture display on screen
  • This will be the format that the TV will display the picture until you select another format.

If the problem is not resolved:

  • Check if the TV is connected to a Cable or Satellite box. You may need to set the picture format in the Cable or Satellite box.
  • For detailed information, please refer to the user manual of the Cable/Satellite box or contact the cable company for further assistance.
