Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television

1 Answer

Picture cut Just recently My picture is being cut off. I tried to adjust the widescreen, but everything I do doesnt help out at all. In fact it just gets worse. To add to it. Everytime I turn my TV on I get no audio. The only thing that fixes it is to turn it off and then on again..

Sounds like a bad panel, although the audio problem is puzzling. When you say "cut off" is half the picture missing? A better description would help

Vertical and horizental picture expand and please help me to adjust it


It might help if you listed the brand and model of your TV, but usually on the remote you will see some sort of mode button. You can change the picture size there. Or you can go into your system menu and change it in the display menu. The typical ones are widescreen, zoom, stretch, etc. Also try changing the picture aspect ratio. 16:9 will give you widescreen while 4:3 will give you regular. Also, another problem might be that the channel you are watching or your cable box is not in HD. If the channel is not specifically an HD channel, the widescreen setting will not work properly and you will need to adjust it to a different setting to keep from getting the black bars on the side. Hope that helps.

Picture Size


Keep in mind that not all programs and show are in widescreen format. When set to normal, you will get those black bars on the sides because the program is sized for the older TV's. Some TV's will have a zoom option, but that will cut off some of the top and the bottom of your picture.

Until everything goes widescreen, you are stuck in normal with those black bars or widescreen with the fat people.

I hate distortion in my TV image, so I am perfectly fine with my TV on normal.

Good luck.

The picture is to ig for the screen in any mode - i have it on full and it cuts everything off teh top and bottom sony bravia


try checking the aspect ratio settings on the device feeding the tv if applicable, i.e set top box, DVD player, etc
Ensure the settings match the tv type, e.g, 16:9 for a widescreen tv. 4:3 may cause cropping of the top/ bottom of the picture if this is set

The picture does not fit the screen. The top and bottom of the picture go beyond the screen


you may need to adjust the aspect ratio of the picture, there is typically an "aspect" button on the remote that will adjust the picture from widescreen, super widescreen 16:9 ratio and sometimes you can zoom in. try that

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.
