"Normal" picture option is gone

I was watching TV in normal mode and it suddenly switched to zoom, and there is no option to go back to normal....only full/zoom/wide zoom. The option doesn't show in menus either.

Have you switched inputs? Some sets when you are on component/ HDMI/DVI will only allow a couple of PIX modes, Antenna will usually allow you to use all of your modes, If you have a cable box they sometimes will also have format modes. Try switching to cable channel 3 (if you get it or have a box on that) and changing format, try a VCR or something if no cable ch 3.

    Have you rebooted (unplugged and plugged back in) the set? Do you have a Sattelite or Cable box?

CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

Hight less


Hello
You have only stated that the height of the picture of your TV is less. Check whether your TV is working on "wide" mode. The mode should be set to "normal" for a full screen picture. There may option to turn the mode; through remote control handset of your tv. Select it, after entering into menu option and check. There are normally 3 modes will be displayed. "NORMAL, WIDE, ZOOM". You have to select "Normal" mode. If this does not helps, your TV needs height adjustments. It can be done only through some code send to the tv via remote. It is known as "service code". It is uneque code, and can be had only with the help of a well experienced technicin. If the problem pereists contact any one of such mentioned above.

It appears that the image on the screen is zoomed in, but I can't figure out how to "undo" that. Thank you!


If the image on screen is zoomed both in vertical and horizontal direction, your TVs power regulator inside it is faulty. [Overvoltage]. If it is zoomed in vertical direction only, that is only the height of the picture is zoomed, you can adjust it with the remote control button directly on going through menu and get in to the function menu. Normally all TV remote has a special button marked as "Zoom" which on pressing it once the picture get zoomed, again another press the picture gets wide and again an another press picture will come to normal mode. You should select normal mode to retify the problem.

Can't get full screen


I have a Vizio. If I use the HDMI input I can only get normal and zoom w/ picture buttom on the remote but get full picture on all cable supplied HD channels but not on none HD channels. However, if I switch cable input, I have the TV set up with both inputs from the converter box, I am able to have the options of normal,panoramic,wide and zoom on all non HD channels. I don;t like the black bars top and bottom of the HD channels with this imput mode so I switch back to HDMI. Maybe your TV is simmilar.

ZooMING Problem


You can't zoom when you are in 3MP mode (default highest resolution). The phone can only zoom in VGA/1MP/2MP modes.

To switch modes:
Start the Camera
Choose "Settings"
Choose "Picture Size"
Pick "2 MP" or "1 MP" or "VGA"

Note: Lowering the Picture Size lowers your picture resolution and quality.

Cant see full picture w/ Vizio 32in HDTV


You would look for a format button on your remote.
Dish Network: bottom left the asterisk "*" button
DirecTV: top left, second from the top labelled "format"
Cable remote: look for format, zoom, or aspect ratio

Pressing this button should scroll you through the options.
