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.)

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 receive high def channels.


What kind and model of TV?
More than likely it is not designed to receive the hi def signals and will require a converter box.

I corrected mine by adjusting my cable settings. It had been set to "zoom" / "wide" mode. I reset to "normal" and now channels look fine again.

Aspect Function Not Working


Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

"Normal" picture option is gone


Have you switched inputs? Some sets when you are on component/ HDMI/DVI will only allow a couple of PIX modes, Antenna will usually allow you to use all of your modes, If you have a cable box they sometimes will also have format modes. Try switching to cable channel 3 (if you get it or have a box on that) and changing format, try a VCR or something if no cable ch 3.
