Why are the menu settings that I changed not being saved? A. The TV is in Showroom mode. The following steps will help you switch to Home mode.

  1. Press Menu button from the remote,
  2. Press Down arrow key until you see the word Picture, then press the Right arrow key,
  3. Press Down arrow key until you see Mode, then press the Right arrow key,
  4. Press Down arrow key until you see Power Up, then press the Right arrow key,
  5. Press Down arrow key until you see Home, then press the Enter key,
  6. Press Menu button four times to exit out from the OSD Menu.
***Showroom mode is designed for retailers to display the TV and to protect from shoppers changing the settings that are predetermined for shelf display environment.***

TRYING TO CHANGE SMALL OICTURE TO THE WHOLE SCREEN


Look for 'ASPECT' or 'DISPLAY' on the remote to change the display size. You may not have that function if you are not using the original remote.

You need to go into the menu and take it off of auto aspect. As long as this is on it will adjust whenever it feels like it.

Horizonal- picture is wavy


i have the same problem.  i know it involves changing the Aspect.  there is an Aspect button on the remote which does not work for me, but could for you?  also, after pressing the menu button, some options come onto the screen and i used to be able to get to Aspect that way also, and now i can't.  i hope you can!  if not, do we need a manual for it?  good luck.
