      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...

      press MENU
      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!

      For anyone that is struggling with this issue here is how I finally got the tv back to normal. Press the menu button and go to 3D mode, turn it on. It will RESET the zoom setting back to normal. Then simply turn 3D mode off (unless you want it on..). Problem fixed!
