SOURCE: I cannot get my cable

For HD you have to have a square screen
Sorry to disagree; the standard screen has an aspect ratio of 4:3, this is far more 'square' than the 16:9 (aka 'wide screen') which is standard for HDTV. If you are on cable or satellite service, you may well have to pay extra to have the whole of your screen available for viewing.
That is why only 'over the air' broadcasts are absolutely affected by the change from analog to digital next February but other sources do not have to change over to the new standard and the 4:3 sets will work fine without any extra box until those sources decide to 'go digital.'

How can I obtain a picture that covers the full screen width?


There are settings accessed through the TV remote that should allow you to adjust the screen size. Sometimes movie rentals are shown at widescreen (black at top and bottom of screen) due to how the actual movie was made to be viewed by the viewing audience.

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

Does not show full width of screen.


Under the settings, there's typically an option for the video width.
Under settings, go to Screen settings, then change the wide mode options to FULL.
This will make the picture fill the entire screen.
If that doesn't work, you may not be viewing an HD source. Change to an HD channel and you should have a full screen picture.

Full screen view


in order to get the full HD experience you should be using HDMI cables. if you're using the white/red/yellow cables then your HD channels will not broadcast in full HD and you'll be stuck with the annoying black things around your screen
