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 have recently purchased a LG LCD TV Model 32LK330. Everything seems to work fine except all of the people look as if they had gained an additional 100 pounds. Is this distortion natural.


It is aboslutely normal. The aspect ratios on LCDs are different from the good ol' CRTs and CRT based projection tvs. As a matter of fact when I got my first LCD tv, it took me a few months to get used to it. You can try other aspect ratios though by going to Menu-> Picture->aspect ratio and try the different settings available to see if any of them works for you.

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.

Yes, it is possible the settings from your cable box maybe set to the wrong ratio eg:letterbox. Depending on what type of box you have, look in the cable box menu for a settings option, then change the aspect ratio to a different format.

You need to change the aspect ratio of the screen. The cable box remote has an aspect ratio button and the tv remote also has an aspect ratio button or picture size button. You are probably on a zoom aspect since its too big.
