    ok try this gointo menu then goto picture hen advance picture and check autoformat. this may get you out of zppm mode but this also means you picture will change to native format of watch you watch wich may not be the way you want to watch. so once its in the format you watch try turning autoformat off

Picture cut off for my flat screen pansonic tv, zoom adjustment grayed out and i cannot adjust?


Without that model number (should be on receipt or owner manual for set) do not expect anything here other than a general answer.

If the zoom is grayed out it may be normal depending on what is connected and how. If you are using a box of some kind hooked via rear inputs the box may be the reason---it may control or cause this to be grayed out---a simple answer to a question: Do you have the same problem with a DVD etc hooked up to a rear input?

I have a 52 inch SONY Bravia that has been stuck in zoom mode since last night. iI am unable to see the writing and/or tops of heads on top of screen. any help available?


Press the "WIDE" button on the TV remote a few times to change the TV wide mode settings until you get it to "FULL". If that does not fix it, look on your Cable box remote for an "Aspect" or "Format" button and press it a few times. I hope this helps.

Heads are cut off off


It sounds like you may have the zoom mode enabled on the TV source. A lot of HDTVs have settings for how different modes like 4:3 format source video is displayed such as Normal, Full, Wide, Zoom and Wide Zoom. Each signal input may have a different display mode and that is why DVDs look ok and TV does not. Not all TVs have that feature but most of the ones that I have dealt with do.
It may also be a screen centre adjustment in the cable box or satellite receiver.

I hope I was able to give you a viable solution.

Cheers

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

Stuck in zoom


You should be able to get to the menu with the front panel buttons. Otherwise, try unpluging for a minute, this may allow a reset. Please do not rate me if this is no help.

Sharp TV - 32LW92H - Zoomed in


Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

We are stuck in ZOOM. No one has a head!


Are you using an HD cable or sat. box? If so then the settings on that can certainly lock out the zoom/normal feature on the TV. The way you can tell is go to another input and see of the selections are still greyed out. If not then your cable box or sat. rcvr is incorrectly set. Let me know what happens.
