How do I adjust my screen size

My screen size recently went from a 32" down to a 19". I cannot locate the original remote and am currently using a universal remote. How do I bring the screen back to the original 32" size.

You can do this manually throught he menu and using the volume/channel buttons to toggle to the choices. Go to the video menu and in there you will be able to adjust the display size.

What size of screws/bolts do I need to mount the base to the TV?

It uses metric machine screws. You may have to spend some time at your local "big box" store searching for the right hardware, BUT length is important from a safety perspective. Insert a toothpick in one of the holes and mark where it is flush at the top. Take your toothpick to the store and match length with the M4, M6, etc. screws you will be sorting through.

A large screen TV such as yours requires two people to place it screen down on a soft surface such as a blanket for hardware installation. Be sure to tighten the screws firmly. Enlist the same two people (or designated alternates) to lift the TV and place it where it should be located.

32" scene picture is 19" rest the scene is black

As per the operator manual in the case of the picture not showing up correctly, begin by pressing the "PICTURE SIZE" button several times to cycle through the various size options (sounds like you have tried this though). Next, press the power button first
to see if it fixes the issue... if not, then press this sequence of buttoms on the remote control (6 buttons in this sequence):
"SLEEP", "PICTURE SIZE", "[right arrow]", "[up arrow]", "[down arrow]", "[pwr button]". This restores the default screen size settings.

I am not sure how you are using your monitor (TV, HDMI, Composite, PC Monitor, etc.. ). That would be very helpful.

If this does not resolve the issue, I would suggest downloading the service manual from this link to work through the advanced troubleshooting flowchart... They point to a reinitialization of the basic functions (reset the TV to factory defaults) through the initialization process. I have worked on a number of this model, and have almost always found it is settings which have been inadvertantly mis-adjusted while tweaking preferences or the last settings of the operation since it will always go back to the last way it was setup when you power it up (no matter what modality was in use last time.. eg. 480i in PC or DVD operation changed to HDTV next time). Remember the HD 16:9 screen is nearly twice as long as the old 4:3 screens, as well as having nearly twice the vertical pixels... Thisis what it sounds like in your case with the 19" screen to me.. Let me know if this helps...

Sony kv-32hs420 screen mode doesnt work

Display ratio usually is a setup choice but bear in mind that old movies and old TV programs will display in 4:3 ratio. Remotes usually have no control over screen size.

Lost remote for emerson lc320em8 32 in. lcd tv, how can i adjust the screen mode to get full screen without the remote?

It is immpossible to set its screen resolution or screen size, without it remote control. Try to get one original remote control, from the authorised service center for Emerson at your town, or buy a universal remote control, which have setup codes for Emerson TV with it. OK.
