That is normal. Most HDTV's have a format or picture size option on the remote or menu. It will give you options like full, stretch ot zoom to fill in the blank spots. The problem is those settings can also distort the picture size so people look funny.

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra plasma tv


It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)

Picture is schinking in on both sides


the picture is narrowed on the sides when you are not on a high def program.
commercials will often be standard def even on a high def channel.

check you cable or satelite box setting to "stretch" analog programming automatically.

Just set up the bravia and the picture is not crisp... directions for trouble shooting?


do u have a hd box, because if you dont then your tv is not going to project the look that you want. and another thing is that is that if you have basic cable then you will not have the desire look you want. another you can do is check with your cable company and ask them what are your high def channels and then once you turn to them channels your tv should look clear as water lol. but not all channels are high def. and most lcd flat screen tv come preset so when you turn to a high def channel it will say at the top 108pi or 1080p or 4080i or p but its depending on ur service provider

Tv turns on and has sound but no picture. Only black screen, the menu from the cable or dvd cannot be seen.


Make sure your using a cable box that is compatible with a high def tv, if your tuning a high def channel and your converter does not support high def, it will only play the sound, no vidio at all.

In the options tab i went down to system options then to aspect ratio. in this screen you get a few options like 4:3 standard definition and 1080i on high def screen. I chose 1080i high def and then played with the zoom function on my remote and the problem was solved. hope this helps

High Definition Channels leave bar on top and bottom


More then likely it has to do with the aspect ratio of what you're trying to watch. Most DVD's are in widescreen format (2.40 to 1) like you would see in a theater but an HD tv is a 16 by 9 format or 1.85 to 1. Look at the DVD case and see. Also some HD shows are in widescreen so you'll get the same thing. You're only option to fill the screen is get movies in 1.85 to 1 or use your zoom functions however these do tend to distort the picture.
