Cant get rid of black baras on top and below while watching DVD's

Hi, just bought a LG 42LG50, to get better performance from my Sony SBP350 Blue Ray. I had a Samsung R7 and watched movies with no problem without black bars. Now i changed to the LG but everytime i watch a regular or blue ray DVD i have black bars below and above the image. HAve tried all the adjustments i could think about with no luck.
Any clue what should i do?

The TV remote may have a button stating Aspect Ratio, or similar. Usually when you keep hitting it, it may cycle through available settings like 16:9, 4:3, Wide, Zoom, etc. If not, or if the remote doesn't have this button, check the TV's onscreen display but usually the source device like the DVD player is in control of how the image fits the screen so the DVD player's onscreen display or it's remote may also have the Aspect option so check it as well. Todays TV's are alot like PC monitors and they "talk" to the device in control of the signal. Your Samsung may have worked better with the Blu Ray, or maybe it's the other way around but your new LG may not have an automatic adjustment like the Samsung may have had.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

PS3 problem with 42LG50 tv.


So I did finally find a solution....I returned my PS3 for a brand new one. Turns out it was my PS3. This is what I did...I bought a blue ray player, I connected the hdmi to my TV....no problem. So it wasnt my TV or HDMI cord. Returned the blue ray player for my money back, and returned my PS3 for a new one. Problem solved. Seems like alot of work, but it was the only way I could troubleshoot my issue. Just for kicks, try using another HDMI cord. I went through 3 different kind. Good luck.
