Samsung TV Cuts off Sides of Picture

by Doberz / November 30, 2013 5:34 AM PST

I have a Samsung TX-82782H HDTV. My issue is it cuts off the picture on the sides. It doesn't bother me much watching TV, but video games it ruins things because there's tips, maps, etc that are cut off. This happened with my Xbox 360, and now it's happening with my Xbox One. They are both hooked up by HDMI. I have set the at 16:9 and 4:3. It's not zoomed in or anything. No matter when I do, it cuts off the edges. I've heard of something called overscan that can supposedly fix this issue, but I do not see this in the limited menu offered to me. If I can't fix this, I will have no other choice then to buy a new TV, which I would hate to do because besides the sides cutting off it's a fantastic TV.

So just scan and PC labels are not an option?

Thank you

Thank you for the link. I just read through it though, and none of this seems to pertain to my TV. I do not have Just Scan, Overscan, etc in my Menu's settings. My TV is a little on the older side, it's from 2006 and a CRT HDTV. It does have full HD though and the picture looks great on my Xbox One. It's still, just the darn sides being cut off..

If it helps, I can post screen shots of my menus settings. I can barely find anything only about my TV which I'm guessing is because of it's age.

It doesnt

It doesn't have PC in the list for Mode's. The mode settings don't seem to do much at all, and they definitely don't resize the screen for me. The Size option does, but it just adjusts to the top and bottom, nothing adjusts it from side to side. I play a lot of Battlefield on the Xbox, and it always irritates me they have a setting to adjust the screen up and down, but not side to side..

I really wish I would have jumped on this 32" HDTV I saw on Walmarts website for $98 on Black Friday. I saw it, then decided to browse a couple other sites really quick to see if there were anymore deals... 5 minutes later I went back to and the thing was sold out. Sad If I can find a decent 32" (it's all that fits in my rooms entertainment center) for $150 or less I'm going to jump on it. Even if I figure out the issue with this one, I can just use it as a spare room TV.
