Ok, Hi. I have a Philips flat panel TV and it's currenty zoomed in on all of the channels and I can't get it to back out of it. How do I zoom out? There isn't a zoom button on my remote! Please help! I would be so greatful if someone can give me the answer soon. I've tried turning the TV off and back on and that didn't help. Do you think it's broke?
Yea. Philips menu really is bad... let me see if I can remember...
goto picture or settings... you should find it there.
All tv sets should have a zoom button on the remote that doesn't make you dig into the menu to change.
Philips, get a clue!
NOTE: get yourself a unversal remote, it makes operation easier than the remote that came with your TV.
Yeah, it's zoom buttons are hard to find sometimes on remotes, seems like they're labled differently for each TV. I know just looking at my Mitsubishi remote right now that I have to press the FORMAT button to get it to switch with different zoom modes.

Are you running it OTA or with a cable or satellite box? In this case it could be either the TV or the box. Don't rule out a combination of both as well.
Man this took me FOREVER to figure out how to fix this. Can't believe how easy it is to accidentally press a button and zoom the tv in but almost impossible to zoom it back out!

its because you're probably on av 1 or av 2 or some other thing like that U have to be on hdmi that is how its going to look the best
