Question about LG 26LX1D 26 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Widescreen? I have an LG 32FS2ANB (which I couldn't find on your database). It's a 16x9 tv, but I can't watch widescreen programmes on it, it presents only in a 4x3 ratio. By using the ARC button on my remote I can expand the picture to fit the screen, but it it unnaturally stretched, and not true widescreen. I'm using the A.V, inputs in the back, am I doing something wrong? Thanks, Lance.

If the programs you are watching are in standard definition they are meant to viewed in 4x3 and the best you can do is stretch them. If they are in HD you need to use the component video inputs or HDMI, then the TV will see you are watching HD and display it in its natural format 16x9. Also some SAT recievers and Cable boxes have thier own size/ratio settings

Recheck your remotes settings most likely it's turned on for stand by sometimes going into your settings and going back to it's default settings helps.

Hi, How Can I Use my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80


Set it in program mode. Set sharpness and color to vivid. The movie mode is quite good on this unit with good mono audio. Color quality in movie mode is quite nice. Set it for 16X9 widescreen if you have a widescreen television. I advise shooting in widescreen all videos anyway. You can find pics from this camera on http://www.kelsci5.blogspot.com.

Picture is only in middle of screen, top and bottom of screen is blacked out


If you are watching widescreen format movie or tv programming on a non-widescreen tv, that is how it will appear. The widescreen is a wider picture so to show it on a less wide screen, it has to shrink down to fit. and leave blank space top and botton.

If not, sorry.

Hi there When I shoot in 16x9 widescreen with my Canon XL1 the viewfinder shows the same image as when shooting in 4x3. Can this be adjusted. Regards John


It is not showing the same image, it is showing the 16x9 squished down to the 4x3 aspect ratio. I thought I had the same thing at first too. But to check & make sure set up a shot of something square in one or the other shooting ratios. Then go into the menu & set it up on the 16x9 on/off. To make it easier to see the picture hook up to a monitor to see the picture without squinting through the eye piece. Now while you are watching the picture switch the 16x9 on & off on the camera. If you started in 16x9 the square will lengthen from side to side in 4x3, while the square in 4x3 will become squished on the sides. If you can't tell, take a piece of tape [removable tape that is] and make the sides of the box before & after you change the aspect ratio.

Making the projector widescreen


VP6320 is not a wide screen projector. It is formatted for 4X3. If you send 16X9, it will crop part of the picture.

High Definition Channels leave bar on top and bottom


More then likely it has to do with the aspect ratio of what you're trying to watch. Most DVD's are in widescreen format (2.40 to 1) like you would see in a theater but an HD tv is a 16 by 9 format or 1.85 to 1. Look at the DVD case and see. Also some HD shows are in widescreen so you'll get the same thing. You're only option to fill the screen is get movies in 1.85 to 1 or use your zoom functions however these do tend to distort the picture.
