Android app only taking up part of screen

 I have an Android application that's seemingly only taking up 1/3 or
so of the screen on a Texas Instruments Zoom Android device.  You can
see what I mean here: 

The upper-middle third or so of the screen contains the app, but the
rest of the screen is black.  I have thousands of other people using
this app, but have never had a report of this before (and can't
reproduce it using the emulator).

I'm typically building the layout programmatically (typically with a
ScrollView as the main view) then using setContentView() to display
it.  I was originally using setContentView(View), but I tried adding
new ViewGroup.LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT,
ViewGroup.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT) as the second parameter today,
which didn't seem to fix the problem.

I'd appreciate any advice anyone can give.  Thanks.

1. Removing SurfaceView when switching layouts


In my application, I have two layouts. One with a ListView and the
other containing a SurfaceView.  When I switch from from the ListView
layout to the SurfaceView layout everything is works as intended, but
if I switch from SurfaceView layout to ListView layout the SurfaceView
is still available.

Any ideas on how I can hide/remove the SurfaceView when the I switch
to the ListView layout??
