How do I change to 4:3 aspect setting on sony kdl40ex500


If the WIDE button on the remote control isn't changing the aspect ratios here is what I can tell you:

Normal is not available when you are watching a 720p, 1080i or 1080p source.
If 4:3 Default is set to anything but Off, the Wide Mode setting changes only for the current channel. When you change channels (or inputs), Wide Mode is automatically replaced with the 4:3 Default setting for 4:3 sources. To retain the current Wide Mode setting as channels and inputs are changed, set 4:3 Default to Off.
4:3 Default is not available if Auto Wide is set to Off.

The owner's manual can be found here: https://docs.sony.com/release/KDL32FA600-EX301-EX400-EX401-EX500-EX501.pdf

If you still can't get the aspect ratio to properly work you may need to do a power reset or perform a factory reset: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38403/c/65,66/p/61659,62766,63066/ Just make sure to note any special picture or sound settings you may have made.

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra plasma tv


It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)

Model LG52LG70 has a problem when switching from High Definition channels to non-high definition channels, and vice a versa. The tv simply shuts off, pauses for 10 seconds and then turns on. Time warner...


Any high def TV will momentarily go blank when changing from High Def to normal mode. Ten seconds is an abnormally long time for that to take place. If you still have a warranty on the TV I suggest you take it in to have it serviced. Otherwise you will have to pay to have this item checked out. There are a number of issues that might be causing the problem so it will be necessary to have a technician check it out.

Wide screen mode won't go back to "normal".


Was exactly what you said. The cable box settings were in wide mode. Couldn't figure it out at all. Funny thing was too.. on my cable box remote, the button under the #9 button is the # button.. it doesn't say zoom at all.. but it totally controls the zoom.

So thanks for that.. AND thanks for saying "under the #9 on the cable remote" instead of just saying .. the zoom button.

Thanks again!!!

Can't get full screen


I have a Vizio. If I use the HDMI input I can only get normal and zoom w/ picture buttom on the remote but get full picture on all cable supplied HD channels but not on none HD channels. However, if I switch cable input, I have the TV set up with both inputs from the converter box, I am able to have the options of normal,panoramic,wide and zoom on all non HD channels. I don;t like the black bars top and bottom of the HD channels with this imput mode so I switch back to HDMI. Maybe your TV is simmilar.
