LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching

Hello everybody, I discovered this forum surfing the net to find a solution for a problem I have with a new 32" LG LCD TV.
When I use DVD player or VCR on AV1-2 input, regardless the aspect ratio I select, after 10 minutes or so the aspect ratio switches back to 16:9. I tried with 4:3, 14:9, Zoom 1 or 2, Original. In all cases after a few minutes it's on 16:9 again. It id annoying at best. It seems that there is an automatic aspect ratio setting up functionality, working in a slightly odd way. Anu suggestions?
Thanks in advance for cooperation.

    Just as described -- the TV switches to widescreen after some minutes, when I have set up the correct aspect ratio for the programme. Very annoying.

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
MENU
OPTIONS
FACTORY RESET
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

Yes,that fixed my problem,my son had switched to "store" mode thinking it would brighten up the picture, then the tv started switching to 16.9 mode for all channels,setting it back to home mode fixed the problem,thanks FixYa.

Not a real solution actually. The store where I purchased the TV changed mine with another one...

I asked why the heads are cut off on my tv. I was told to adjust aspect ratio on the screen menu. I cannot find aspect ratio on screen menu. HELP


It will be listed as screen option, it will be "widescreen" "panoramic" and regular broadcast image, no such button as aspect but the above are aspect options.

WHY DID MY VIORE SCREEN RESIZE TO SMALLER SCREEN


Screen size depends on the broadcast signals aspect ratio, the TV adjusts for that automatically, the picture can have no bands or be banded top and bottom or on both sides.
