Won't display in 16:9

I've had this DVD player & recently purchased a 16:9 HDTV. Even though I've set the aspect ratio to 16:9 in the setup, it only displays in 4:3 and Panasonic support's only solution was to use the Zoom feature (only applicable when aspect is set to 4:3, so doesn't do any good). Has anyone else seen this? I think it is a defect w/ my player (or software/firmware). Any ideas?

SOURCE: Troubleshooting -- Displays H07 code

The H07 error message in Panasonic DVDs means problem in the motor. It can be something like "motor isn't spinning-up" or "spindle motor problem". When you call Panasonic, they will tell you that they cannot tell what H07 means until a technician look at it. Obviously, they won't admit it is a known problem. Estimate cost: from $50 to $70 dollar to replace the motor + labor + tax.

I figured out, unlike all the other posts, you don't have an enter button. But Instead, you would hit the 2 and OK button at the same time for a few seconds. I had the RC1 message and I did the 1 with OK and it worked. so if you have RC2, you should hit the 2 and OK. Should work!!

SOURCE: panasonic dmr-e55 won't work, just says "hold" on display

HOLD or X HOLD? If the latter - which is most likely - then the Child Lock has been activated! Press and hold ENTER and RETURN simultaneously until HOLD disappears!

How to adjust aspect ratio on sony kdl-v40xbr1

To take advantage of the wide mode feature on your TV, Set the DVD players' aspect ratio to 16:9. For details, refer the operating instructions supplied with your DVD player. Aspect ratio must be set with DVD player. Not with the TV. OK.

Change screen from wide to regular our cable guy put it on wide my control will no longer change it

Vizio has a set of buttons on the left side where you can access your settings and change the aspect ratio of your TV. Though why you want it changed is beyond me. Wide screen is for 16:9 aspect ratios. At 4:3 (Standard) you won't be using your full TV picture.

Hi. We have a Sony dvd player dvp-sr200p and have a wide screen tv, when we play a dvd we get a small square picture with black sides. We would like the have a full picture like we had before. Could...

With the player in STOP mode, or without a disc inserted, press DISPLAY on the remote. Then press either the UP or DOWN arrow keys (on remote) to scroll down from LANGUAGE setup to SCREEN SETUP, then highlight the aspect ratio which best suits the connected TV, in this case 16:9 widescreen (according to the manual the default aspect is 4:3 letterbox). Once you have made the change, exit the setup. It should remember the setting you have made.

Pages 26 to 27 of the owner's manual illustrate the setup procedure for this model DVD player.

NOTE: some DVDs may be encoded as 4:3 titles, hence you will see black borders at the left and right sides of a widescreen TV. Not all DVD movies are encoded in the 16:9 aspect ratio.

However, you can check your player's setup menu just to be sure.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.

Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

Occasionaly a wide screen dvd plays only in full screen

The aspect ratio on your DVD player is not set correctly. Look for a SETUP button on the remote control, there should be something like "QUICK SETUP" or something similar on the setup menu, if not then go to the menu that has the aspect ratio settings listed. Change your aspect ratio to 16:9 WIDESCREEN, and this should solve your problem. Your aspect ratio is 4:3 which is for a regular TV, if the images (especially people) look real skinny and tall on your TV then your aspect ratio is not properly set. Good luck to you!

LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

The 4:3 is an aspect ratio the ratio of horizontal to vertical size and the non-HDTV standard; the latter is 16:9.
The PAL and NTSC abbreviations refer to the picture and synchronization standards whereby NTSC is the American standard and the PALs are European. The setting "sp-raw" refers to an unprocessed video format that requires further processing before it can be viewed.
If the disk you have was made for the American market, you should be set to NTSC and the aspect ratio to whatever the disk is specified, most recent disks will be made to conform to HD specifications, but may also  be viewed in "letterbox" form which is a shrunken 16:9 box with pronounced edges around it.
