Question about Toshiba REGZA 42 in. Flat-Panel LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Picture size does not work

After a 16 months of use suddenly the picture size is not correct. When native is selected, picture is somewhat elongated from top to bottom. Scrolled writing or boxes such as sport boxes showing score, balls and strikes are half hidden. Problem started 24 hours ago with no changes made in the set up.

Unplug the power cord for about an hour or more and provide supply to the tv .

At times the power supply can cause this problem .

If you have any substances generating EM waves in and around tv remove it .

Picture size


I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but:
1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio.
2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays.
NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options.
4:3 Programming
[Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen.
[Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off.
[Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal.
16:9 Programming
[Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is.
[Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation.
[Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation

A simple question - My new 42" LG tv is fine -


You should be able to change the aspect ratio to fit the size of your screen. This will be the 16:9 4:3 16:10 settings.

You can access these by going to MENU---> PICTURE -----> Select ratio that works----> exit out and watch TV.

IF this will not fix it you need to look into the signals being fed to the TV as sometimes they can have a funny effect on the output picture. Some cable boxes will alter the picture and then it won't come out right on the TV. If it is all inputs doing this tho then changing just the Aspect ratio on the TV should solve the problem.

All the pictures are looking small.sometimes look big


If you enter the menu, select picture size and de select "Auto".
What is happening is the TV is reading data lines from the transmission, as it should, and is changing the picture settings from 16 X 9 to 5 X 4 through Expand etc. Deselecting Auto sizing will stop that.
Hope it fixes your problem.

I have a 55cm TFT LLED-22FHD TV. The aspect ratio is 16:9. This is too wide and the images appear fat. How do I correct this.


Go to the picture menu and select a different aspect ratio. Auto sizing is useful as the TV will detect the picture size and select the correct aspect ratio, except for letterbox and super wide screen of course as your screen is not the right shape for those.
Hope this helps.

Toshiba 40 inch tv with picture edges gone.


Are you using a cable box or a satellite receiver? They too have format, Zoom, or view mode buttons.. It seems like there's several names for them but they do the same thing. I hope this helps.

Full tv screen is not being diplayed horzontally.


First thing to check is the picture size. You can view many program formats in a variety of picture sizes
  1. Natural
  2. TheaterWide 1
  3. TheaterWide 2
  4. TheaterWide 3
  5. Full
  6. 4:3 HD
  7. Native
  8. Dot by Dot.
The format of the image will vary depending on the format of the signal you are currently watching from you cable or satellite provider. Select the picture size that displays the current program the way that looks best to you.

To select the picture size using the remote control:
  1. Press I on the remote control.
  2. While the Picture Size screen is open, you can do one of the following to select your desired picture size:
• Repeatedly press I.
• Press the corresponding Number button (0–6) while the Picture Size screen is open.
• Press B or b while the Picture Size screen is open.

To select the picture size using the menus:
  1. Select Picture Size in the Theater Settings menu.
  2. Press C or c to select the desired picture size setting.
  3. Highlight Done and press T.
Some of the picture sizes may not be available depending on the receiving signal format from your cable or satellite provider (those will be “grayed out” in the Picture Size screen).


Second thing to check is the Native Mode which restores the size of the picture by the 3-5% that is generally lost during the normal over scanning that occurs on traditional sets. It also avoids unnecessary scaling of 1920 x 1080 HD signals. I hope this helps and good luck!

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...


kyleolver,
16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
