    Hi I have a Sony 50" TV which is great accept that the picture does not fit on the screen fully (either horizontally or vertically). I have tried all the settings and a technician from the retailer could not adjust. You can adjust the screen up and down but for example cannot seen the top and bottom edge at the sam time (and sides are also short).

    Any help please

    Peter

    You will probably have more luck posting in the actual LCD forum.

    It is to be expected and is part of all TV standards that there is some "overscanning" (a term inherited from CRT sets, in fact). This should amount to not more than 5% of the image in each direction.

    I'm not so sure about this. I have absaloutely no overscan except when connected to the VGA port. You didn't mention which source. If you have Digital TV via Cable/Sat or a seperate Freeview box, it is likely that this is set to 4:3. You will need to change this to 16:9 to give you the proper picture.

    If you have absolutely no overscan then (using this as just one example) whenever you play a domestic video tape (or any other medium, where somewhere in the production chain, certain types of tape was used - happens in early music videos) you will see a disturbance along the bottom of the picture. This is head switching noise, is part of the picture, but should be concealed by overscan.

    In truth, if you do have absolutely no overscan then it isn't set up right. I repeat. It is part of every TV standard, is intentional. For standard definition sources it should be about 5% in each direction. Anything else is actually wrong.
