samsung 7500 picture wider then screen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is new to me. I have owned the tv for almost a year and just a few days ago my picture changed.

My display is wider then my screen. I can clearly see words etc at the edge of the display are cut off. Can also tell the picture looks streatched and wider then normal.

I went into menu and picture is still set to 16.9. I even changed it to fit to screen, that didnt work and went back to 16.9 and its still wrong.

Help please.

How are you watching content? Cable box? Straight cable? How is it connected? Does it happen on all sources?

If your tv is set to 16x9, it's likely the problem is coming from the source itself.

It was my satellite receiver - it got some update that changed the picture size. I tried a few settings changes with that - 16:9, 1080, 720 - nothing fixed it. So I did a reset to factory standards on my receiver and everything is back to normal.

Why do they do updates and break stuff that was working perfectly fine before and likely had nothing to do with whatever they were updating!!!

Agreed. My DVR from my cable company recently updated. It's now about twice as slow as before, and it doesn't output surround sound from the hdmi port like it used to. Now I have to run a separate cable to the receiver just for sound.
