BLACK BARS ON TOP / BOTTOM: Most movies are filmed in a format wider than your TV's 16:9 aspect ratio. Some discs adjust the picture to eliminate the borders while other discs keep the film's original format. When the disc's content is in wide-screen format, then black bars are displayed at the top and bottom of the picture. Changing the TV's FORMAT (or aspect) setting to a ZOOM mode may eliminate the bars. However, the zooming effect trims the sides of the pictures, so some content is cut off.
