Sanyo HT30744 Aspect Ratio Help

I am having problems with the picture on my Sanyo HT30744 30"Widescreen T.V.

At first the screen didn't stretch to the full widescreen withwith my X-Box 360, or my DVD player (both pluged into the Component Jacks). So I tried looking into their HD setting and playing around with them. On the X-Box 360 I set it to 720 and then to 1080i, and the screen still stayed boxed in and the widescreen settings on the 360 made the image look al smashed together.
At first the TV did strech out the image to the full screen with my Satilite and even the 360 and DVD (pluged into the S-Video and Composit Jacks). One of my friends told me that they usually have to be reset and then you would be able to fix the aspect ratio on it.
Well I reset the T.V. and now NONE of the channels or Inputs will strech to full screen.
Any Help???

Do you still have the original remote? If so there is a button that says "Pix shape" that will change your aspect ratio for you. If you are watching something in HD it should say "full". If it is analog it will say "normal" in 4x3 format. If you want it stretch hit it till it says "zoom 1" or "zoom 2". If you don't have the original remote I am not sure how you would change it. You can find them on ebay if you need one. Hope this helps.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

Cannot change aspect ratio when im playing a game it cuts off part of the screen


Normal aspect ratio is 4:3, and the wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you play a game meant for 4:3 and you change the TVs aspect ratio to 16:9; part of the picture will be cut off. It is not the fault of the TV.

I cannot change the aspect ratio on the TV. When I go to the menu, Aspect Ratio is in red and I cannot select it. On certain channels the screen is too big and I can't see the edges of the broadcatsed...


This is a quote of what Sanyo told me: "The aspect ratio can only be changed when the unit is in the video mode." So I tried switching modes with the input button and it worked but went to like a letter box/wide screen type of picture, which doesn't help me. We have dishnetwork and on the Panasonic plasma we can adjust the ratio with their remote so I have two options there but not with my Sanyo unfortunately. Hope this helps

Picture is to tall. it cuts off the top of the heads


It sounds like you have the image on the perspective. If you tv is 4:3 aspect ration the video source (cable box, dvd ) must be set for a 4:3. If you have a 16:9 ratio (widescreen) the soutrce should be set to 16:9..................Nevermind, Just looked it up you this TV is 4:3.

Your TV remote will have a button to toggle/change the aspect ratios of the TV. Button could be called picture/aspect/image etc. If you have an HD cable box you need to go into the video setting and chnage the aspect ratio to match the 4:3 tv.

If you need more help, please respond with more deatils.

Xbox 360 stretched screen out and cannot fix it now


Have you checked the aspect ratio?? May be that when the kids had the X-Box hooked up they simply changed the aspect to zoom.

You may have a vertical circuit problem causing the picture to stretch out. This is called "over scan". You need to have a tech check it for you. Stargazer
