Wide screen viewing

I have a LG model # 42PX12X and since I moved I no longer have wide screen viewing. Everyone says "thats just how they shoot the programing" if thats so why did I buy a wide screen TV?

Hi, I have an LG RZ-20A70 TV and when i watch TV or play xbox the side are cut off the screen. (think its the picture ratio) any idea how to change this? as i have tried everything!


yes it is a picture ratio issue .
You need to look for the main menu tv setup button, its green on my lg remote .
Once you select this you should have an option to change screen ratio to 16.2 or wide screen if your tv supports wide screen .
Look for a little tv icon on screen and select that ,this should get you to pic set .

Change screen from wide to regular our cable guy put it on wide my control will no longer change it


Vizio has a set of buttons on the left side where you can access your settings and change the aspect ratio of your TV. Though why you want it changed is beyond me. Wide screen is for 16:9 aspect ratios. At 4:3 (Standard) you won't be using your full TV picture.

I have a vizio vw32L40a and the screen is too wide. there are only wide and stretch settings, no normal setting. the screen is too wide for the tv.


6/09 I had the same problem when receiving the signal over the air with the input set to TV. Perhaps the signal strength or type was varying. At any rate, after I hooked up HD cable and watch from that input, the problem no longer occurs.

Issue with LG Plasma tv model # DU-42PX12X


Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

LG DU-42PX12X Verticle lines of various colors, and widths throughout the screen.


Check within you area for a reliable LG repair center. To fix the problem of the blue, red or green vertical line you just need to replace the control board PN 6871QCH038C. The part cost about $150.00 and a honest repair center should not beat you up to bad on the labor. Good luck and Good viewing.
