FiOS TV

My TV picture is too small (letterbox format)
The TV screen has black borders on the top and bottom, has a distorted picture or a single band across the screen Figure depicting TV with small picture
TV in letterbox format.
Troubleshoot your TV:
  • Does your picture have borders on the top and bottom? If you change the channel and the borders go away, you are watching a program being aired in letterbox format.
     
  • Is the TV screen distorted? Play a VCR tape or DVD. If the screen still appears distorted, you might be experiencing an issue with your TV equipment. Contact your TV's manufacturer or review your TV's user guide.
     
  • If the issues persist, contact the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center.
