Sounds like you have it in the 4x3 format where it is closed on both sides several inches.

If it has a Aspect button on the remote or the set use that. Note that some cable or sat boxes will format some channels in this format, cannot do nothing with that.

Unless you get an original remote you do not have much of chance to change the format, a few sets have a button or you can enter the menu manually but not many.

New 39" Insignia TV . I have a picture on the screen that doesn't fill the screen. It is about 4" short on each side. How can I get it to a full screen


if its a even 4 inch border on each side the set is in the 4x3 format, look for a button on the remote (read owner manual) for aspect.

Screen shrunk and can't be changed?


It sounds like the display somehow simply got set to a different resolution. Open System Preferences / Displays and choose a resolution that satisfies you.

Compaq Presario Laptop half screen issue


no photos of the screen presented.
so all i can do is guess what it looks like,
its so old HP has no info on it. legacy PC, called retired.
i guess 10 years old
2007
so one side is dead, black screen right?
and if you shine flash light on the black side, is there data there or not?????????????????
the v3000 is a CCLF back lamps (edge)
and last 20,000 hours max, (very very short life)
so when one side fails. it goes black
the bulb does or its inverter, supply does.
all do this everyone,
all go dim
then blink
then die, or are random starting.
just like a florecent light in say your garage, same deal. same gas tube.

use the flash light, see its not really BLANK IS IT
only the black lamp quit.
endless post here on topic,


in the year 2010 most of these ended and are now all LED
ending all this pain.

Kenmore side by side shorts out when plugged in


Try a different circuit to plug the fridge. Possible you GFI is weak and can not take the start surge of the compressor. Refrigerators need to be on 20 amp circuits and not on same circuits with lights ,televisions,etc.
Also if the refrigerator has be laid down on its side during moving give it 24 hour for the oil to return to the compressor. This also is a symptom of overload on the compressor.

Let me know what you find..Sea Breeze
