Samsung TV: How to change the picture size on my UA55ES8000 TV

Last Update date : 2017.05.11

To change the Picture Size of the TV output, simply go to Menu → Picture Screen Adjustment Picture Size

Using this function, you can select various Picture Sizes and Aspect Ratio options. 

Picture Size
Your cable box / satellite receiver may have its own set of screen sizes as well. However, we highly recommend you use your TV’s 16:9 mode most of the time.

Note: If you have set Double Mode 1  in PIP (Picture-in-Picture), you cannot adjust the Picture Size.


Here are the available options:


●  Auto Wide: Automatically adjusts the picture size to the 16:9 aspect ratios.

●  16:9: Adjusts the picture size to 16:9 for DVDs or wide broadcasting.

●  Wide Zoom: Magnifies the picture size more than 4:3.

●  Zoom: Magnifies the 16:9 wide pictures vertically to fit the screen size.

●  4:3: The default setting for a movie or normal broadcasting. 

Note: Do not watch in 4:3 formats for a long time. Traces of borders displayed on the left, right and centre of the screen may cause image retention (screen burn) which is not covered by the warranty. 


● Screen Fit: Displays the full image without any cut-off when HDMI (720P /1080i / 1080p) or Component (1080i / 1080p) signals are inputted. 


● Smart View 1: Reduces the 16:9 pictures by 50% (for LED TV). 


● Smart View 2: Reduces the 16:9 pictures by 25% (for LED TV). 


Important Notes:


● Smart View 1 is enabled only in HDMI mode. 


● Smart View 2 is enabled only in HDMI or DTV mode.


● The Picture Size can vary when you play content from Videos in AllShare Play.



●  Zoom/Position: Adjusts the picture zoom and position. Zoom is only available if Picture Size is set to Zoom.


Note: Position is only available if Picture Size is set to Wide Zoom, Zoom, or Screen Fit
