The picture on our Vizio V0370M periodically gets darker, then after a while will lighten up.


If this is a brand new TV you may have a bad video card. The other, easier but pain in the but thing is you could be switching from a HD channel to a non HD channel. You will notice a difference. Last if you have an light sensor on the TV (adjusts to surrounding light) that could be tripping but you should have an option to turn that off.

Picture problem


If all your wanted is to widen the picture then just push aspect or format on your remote control and put it on either 16:9 or full. But if your referring to HD then an HD picture fills the screen by itself no matter what setting you have the tv set to. If the screen isnt full then the program your watching isnt broadcasting in HD at that time. A common misconception is that because its an HD tv or an HD channel that it always should show in HD. This isnt true. It goes by the broadcast

A broadcaster will transmit an HD channel in 1 format. This may be 720p or 1080i, both of which are HDTV formats. HDTV formats have an aspect ratio of 16:9. SDTV or standard definition broadcast have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Because not all content is record in an HD format (ex: Judy Judy), the broadcast is faced with 2 options. #1, stretch the 4:3 picture do that it fills the 16:9 canvas. #2, simple place black side bars on each side of the 4:3 image. What you are seeing is the latter of the 2 options. You will notice a change during the evening programming. The bars are only there when the content is not HD. You can use the WIDE feature of your TV to stretch the picture so that it fills the screen, just like broadcaster option #1 above.

Try this solution....

1) On the original TV remote press the menu button.
2) Scroll down to SETUP and press MENU button to select it.
3) Scroll down to WIDE
4) Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys to adjust to your viewing preference.

**** NOTE: When you adjust these settings you may notice a difference in the picture on the HD channels. When you are viewing an HD channel but the network is not broadcasting that show in HD they push in the sides to compensate and try to make it a sharper picture but know this is normal.

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Check in the manual or with the manufacturer, but the TV should auto configure the picture based on the signal.
I have a Toshiba that does the same thing.

There is no mistake when HD is in effect, as the picture is superb.

On My sony kp 53s75 tv the picture does not fill the whole screen on the HD channels

Heads cut off on the screen


Ocean's Eleven. Best remake movie, I think.
I believe your TV is in "ZOOM" mode for the screen. This will make a 4x3 picture come up closer to fill in the 16x9 screen, but this cuts off the top and the bottom.
Keep pressing the WIDE button on your remote until the picture looks best.
If you have HD channels, the screen mode should be on NORMAL. HD channels will have the 16x9 screen format.

The non-HD channels will have 4x3 screen format. When the screen mode is on NORMAL, you will have the cut off picture on the sides because the 4x3 format will not fill in a 16x9 screen.

The picture has shrunk - maybe 720P vs 480P?


make sure your hd cable connection from your cable box is going to an hd connection to your tv.[via hdmi, dvi,or componant.] if you have a different hook up such as rca out or coax out, these are not hd connections and you are probably streching out the picture.look at the rear of the tv & cable box and see how the connections are.the hd hook up to the hd input should make the picture the right size only if it's set on the hd input channel.hook up the dvd player to a aux/line in or video/source input and try changing the picture size. you may have to play around with it till you get it the way you want.
hope this helps.
