Hi rz9z58, Unfortunately, I've had a look around on the net, and this is a problem that you can't fix yourself. It's to do with a rare fault in the software of the Bravia Engine. If you can still return it to Sony under warranty, then go for that - just contact their customer support to arrange it. If not, still give them a ring; the quote they give may be pricey, but not as expensive as getting a whole new set. If it really is too expensive, try to address a letter to the CEO explaining your discontent - nine times out of ten you'll get a profitable response. Saying all of this though, if you live in the UK you're entitled uner the 1979 Sale of Goods Act to take it back to the store you bought it from without a receipt for up to six years after purchase, and they're obliged to take it back. It's 'unfit for purpose'. If you're not, there must be something like that where you are...do look into it, as it could be the solution you need - the television must be, after all, relatively new. Apologies for the bad news, but as I say, I'm pretty certain that you can't do anything about this...it's just an instability in the software of a few machines. If this has helped, I'd appreciate an appropriate rating. Regards, badegine

How to zoom in on info


When TVs first appeared, they had an picture ratio of 4:3, which matched that of most movie screens at the time. Terrified of losing their business, movie studios struck back with "widescreen" films using 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 ratios. When widescreen TVs started appearing, they emulated those same ratios, but many TV shows (and some movies) were still in 4:3---and we were eventually left with a bit of a mess. Canny manufacturers, including LG, have solved the problem by allowing you to adjust the picture ratio on the TV to fit the program you're watching. If it's not set properly, however, your image will look distorted or cut off. A quick bit of troubleshooting can fix the problem easily.

  1. Press the "Menu" button on the remote and scroll down to the "Option" title (it should be second from the bottom ). Then select "Aspect Ratio." You should see a list of ratio options. You simply need to pick the one which fits the show you're watching.
  2. Choose the 4:3 ratio for older movies and TV programs. You should see a pair of bars on the left and right side of the screen. (That's okay: the bars keep the program in the same proportion in which it was filmed.)
  3. Select the 16:9 ratio for widescreen movies and for more recent shows to match their longer width. For some movies, you may see black bars and the top and bottom of the screen. Again, that allows the movie to be shown in the manner it was filmed.
  4. Pick "Set By Program" to automatically switch the LG TV between 4:3 and 16:9 to match whatever show is on at the time.
  5. Select "Horizon" to horizontally expand the image onscreen. It will fill the whole screen---eliminating the black bars to the left and the right---but it may look distorted.
  6. Use the "Zoom 1" option to zoom the image forward. That will eliminate the black bars at the top or the bottom of the screen, though you will cut off the edges of the image.
  7. Pick the "Zoom 2" button to select a midway point between "Horizon" and "Zoom 1." The picture is stretched, but not as much as with "Horizon," and fills the screen, but doesn't cut off as much as "Zoom 1."
  8. Use the "Cinema Zoom" button to enlarge the picture to fit the screen. This option allows you to adjust the proportion to your liking, rather than use the set proportions of the other aspect options.
  9. Exit the menu when you are done and watch your programming normally.

Why did my picture become big so I can not see the sideline information


Press the RATIO button repeatedly to select the desired picture format. You can also adjust Aspect Ratio in the OPTION menu.
  1. Set By Program. Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source’s image. (4:3 → 4:3, 16:9 → 16:9)
  2. 4:3. Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio, with gray bars appearing at both the left and right sides.
  3. 16:9. Choose 16:9 when you want to adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
  4. Horizon. Choose Horizon when you want to adjust the picture in a non-linear proportion, that is, more enlarged at both sides, to create a panorama view.
  5. Zoom 1. Choose Zoom 1 when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  6. Zoom 2. Choose Zoom 2 when you want the picture to be altered, both horizontally extended and vertically cropped. The picture taking a halfway trade off between alteration and screen coverage.
  7. Cinema Zoom. Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. Note: When enlarging or reducing the picture, the image may become distorted. You can adjust the enlarge proportion of Cinema Zoom using D / E button. The adjustment range is 1~16.

Good Day, richardyoung;

Lack of vertical reflection? Does this happen on all channels? Can you change channels and the picture size changes? Are you receiving a HD signal? Have you tried changing the format?

I hate to ask you all these questions but I need to understand your concern completely. If you answered some of questions above yes / no; your TV might be okay. But try them.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
