Question about JVC AV-27D303 27" TV

1 Answer

Prob. with aspect ratio

The aspect ratio on my JVC is off (any full screen dvd is stretched and cut off on top). I think the aspect ratio is on 16:9 and not 4:3 (the tv is a 4:3 screen) anyone know how to fix this? can you use the remote to fix? the TV was dropped, could that be the problem?

The key word here is dropped,was the unit ok before? how hard was it dropped? if the tv is only a 4:3 screen then it can not give you a 16:9 AR unless the dvd can change that, it probably has the main circuit board broken somewhere and it needs professional help.Let's hope is not major damage.

Jvc lt-47em59 picture too large in all aspect modes


Larger as in -- the screen looks fatter. 4:3 stretched to 16:9 or as in Larger as in, screen is longer but thinner? 16:9 / 10 fitting onto ratio 4:3?

Asuming... its the second one -- that ur screen is box 4:3 and the picture is huge 16:9 which is why u need to "zoom out" to get the full picture -- are u sure some idiot didnt mess with the settings and make the tv "zoom in" if it isnt a aspect ratio issue?

... if it is a aspect ratio issue, and ur using 4:3 (small old box televisions) there should be a ratio setting either on ur television OR on ur set top box, that would by defualt with digital tv have wide screen 16:9 -- id suggest finding the settings either on the tv or the set top box or...

just get a bigger tv that supports 16:9 cheap for 50 bucks.

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

Nope, there is no work around to get a full screen view with your unit. Unless of course you want to convert your media to the correct aspect ratio with the aid of a PC or Mac with the proper software. The Wondershare media converter software has a free limited edition. It works OK but is slow and lacks many of the "bells and whistles of the paid software.

Top and bottom of screen are cut off how do we adjust to get screen to fit


Press the "Aspect" button on the remote until the picture looks appropriate. You are probably trying to display a 4:3 ratio channel on your 16:9 ratio TV. You are probably viewing it in "zoom" mode, which does not stretch the 4:3 ratio video, but enlarges it until it fits the width of the screen, which zooms part of the video off the top and bottom of the screen.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

The whole picture does not show on the screen; faces on the edge are cut off


It's one or two problems. It depends on if you're using a cable box. First try to see if your aspect ratio is on full using the JVC remote. Just Press the Aspect button. Then if it's on full and this doesn't correct the problem it may be your cable box. If it's time Warner go into the settings by pressing the settings button on the remote twice I believe tehn go to display and select the select and check each option picture size (change to normal if you have a 4:3 t.v. or stretch if you have a 16:9 (wide screen T.V.) Then go to aspect ratio and select again eih 4:3 or 16:9. If your have a hdtv cable box select output resolution and make sure there is a bulllet next to each setting for 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i. Then exit out of the cable settings and your picture should be ok. Now if you have the hdtv package keep in mind it is normal to have the black side bars on each side of the picture only if your watching one ofthe high definition channel network that is not actual being broadcast in hdtv or recorded in hdtv.

Occasionaly a wide screen dvd plays only in full screen


The aspect ratio on your DVD player is not set correctly. Look for a SETUP button on the remote control, there should be something like "QUICK SETUP" or something similar on the setup menu, if not then go to the menu that has the aspect ratio settings listed. Change your aspect ratio to 16:9 WIDESCREEN, and this should solve your problem. Your aspect ratio is 4:3 which is for a regular TV, if the images (especially people) look real skinny and tall on your TV then your aspect ratio is not properly set. Good luck to you!

Hello shell
I do not believe your problem is with the DVD player. It most likely is with your TV. What happens alot is the picture on a TV is set to a different aspect ratio(ie:4:3,16:9). and sometimes it stretches or zooms the picture, allowing part to be cut off the edge of the screen. This aspect ratio problem can have two causes now that I think of it. The TV or the DVD player. To determine and fix, follow these steps.
PART 1-determining problem-
1 Watch regular TV for awhile and get some infomercials(yes, you have to watch Billy Mayes) on the bottom and edges of the screen, are there words and 800 numbers cut off, if so, your problem is with the TV and skip now to part 2(not step 2)
2 If you can see the whole number and everything , determine if your TV auto adjusts or not. Switch to your DVD player and see if the screens seems to move(shrink or enlarge). If it does shrink or enlarge, your problem is with the DVD player and you can now proceed to part 2.



PART 2-solving problem-
1 By now, you have determined whether the problem is with your tv or dvd player. From this point on "it, it's will refer to whichever has the problem
2 Go into it's menu
3 search for "picture" "video" or "setup"
4 Search for "aspect ratio" or anything containing "4:3" "16:9" or the words "stretch" "zoom" or "widescreen"
5 Set to 4:3 (sometimes 4:3 has multiple options such as stretch, zoom, and normal, if so, select normal)
6 ***OPTIONAL*** If you want widescreen, select 16:9(again if multiple choices, choose normal)
7 Insert or select a DVD and test your subtitles


If this does not work, please post a comment and I will help you further.

The movie was most likely recorded for the PAL system.

On your TV set, you can try setting the aspect ratio. You will have to consult your user manual about how to change the aspect ratio settings. Remember what you did so you can go back.

If the movie was produced with a non standard aspect ratio for your set, there is not much you can do with this...

Widescreen


Unfortunately, a cinema screen is even wider than a widescreen TV. Because of this (in order to keep the original aspect ratio), even with a widescreen TV you still end up with the black bars top and bottom.

Check the aspect ratio of the DVD (Should be printed on the back of the case somewhere).

Unless it says 1.85:1 or 16:9 Anamorphic, you will get the black bars. (Many films on DVD are 2.35:1 or even wider!)

Have you got any different picture modes on your TV. I've got a Toshiba and it has something called 'cinema mode' which does eliminate the bars. Unfortunately it does it by zooming in on the picture slightly, so you loose a bit off the side of the picture and the image does get a little grainier.

Hope this helps.
