Find the Aspect ratio button on the TV remote. Press it a number of times to cycle through the options. Stop when the picture is the shape you want.

Have a read of your TV manual. Stuff like this is detailed in there.

How change picture setting without remote


Hello
Unforcuately Sharp ahs not provided a MENU button on the front panel of your TV. Therefore you can't adjust its picture control. Contact the nearest Sharp authorised serive center, gove them the model number of your TV, and try to get an orginal one. Insist on orginal, not a universal remote. OK.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.


Hello
You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.
OK.

I have a flat screen Sanyo Model# ctl 2054 will a universal remote control work for this tv I don't have the orginal remote control?


Yes, a universal remote control should work on this TV since all remote controls utilizes infrared sensing technology. However, not all functionalities and features of your TV can be accessed using a universal remote control, thus only the basics like volume and channel controls but some advance features like menu setup might not work.
