Aspect ratio makes no difference

My screen is actually a TX-28PK3L. i can change aspect seemingly well, but its stopped allowing me to see the whole picture, as text or titles in programs or movies are just off the screen. Before changing aspect brought these back into the picture, now it doesnt do a thing. any idea?

Daewoo DTQ-19TV1fc aspect ratio changed to letterbox. How do I restore it to full screen?

get the on screen menu on the screen
scroll around till you see aspect ratio and click on that use the buttons to change ( you will see the changes on the screen)
click ok and exit when satisfied
Fir aspect ration to change there can be a few reasons
some tv stations produce movies in the wrong ratio and it shows up for the movie as black edges or tall figures or fat figures ( change channel to verify)
or there can be a fault occurring in the board of the set that will not hold preset aspect ratios

It seems that the width of the displayed picture is less than normal. Change the aspect ratio to 4:3, and check. Go to picture setting menu to adjust the aspect ratio. Check its user manual for more details.

Panasonic TV model no TX-32PD30. Resolution has changed ie become larger and we are losing full screen picture - people are cut out of the screen.


The most likely cause of this is that you have accidentally changed the screen aspect ratio. There should be a button on the Panasonic remote marked "ASPECT". With the TV switched on, try pressing the "ASPECT" button repeatedly until the picture either returns to the correct size or you are unsuccessful and cycle back to the original picture size.

You will probably find that you are currently on one of the "ZOOM" settings. The correct setting should either be "AUTO" or "16:9".

If this does not solve your problem, please post back for further assistance. If you are using another receiving device, e.g. a Sky / FreeSat or Freeview box, it is also possible that you need to change the ratio setting of the receiving equipment. Please let me know the details of any additional receiving equipment you are using if/when replying.

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.

The whole picture does not show on the screen; faces on the edge are cut off

It's one or two problems. It depends on if you're using a cable box. First try to see if your aspect ratio is on full using the JVC remote. Just Press the Aspect button. Then if it's on full and this doesn't correct the problem it may be your cable box. If it's time Warner go into the settings by pressing the settings button on the remote twice I believe tehn go to display and select the select and check each option picture size (change to normal if you have a 4:3 t.v. or stretch if you have a 16:9 (wide screen T.V.) Then go to aspect ratio and select again eih 4:3 or 16:9. If your have a hdtv cable box select output resolution and make sure there is a bulllet next to each setting for 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i. Then exit out of the cable settings and your picture should be ok. Now if you have the hdtv package keep in mind it is normal to have the black side bars on each side of the picture only if your watching one ofthe high definition channel network that is not actual being broadcast in hdtv or recorded in hdtv.

How can I make the picture size fit the screen? I loose picture around the edges. Seems like it is displaying at a larger size

The issue your having is aspect ratio. Some programs and commercials are broadcasting in a higher resolution so some fill the screen and some have black bars top and bottom. I suggest searching "aspect ratio for video". It would take me all night to type it out. But you need to know how the different resolutions change the size of your image. Also in the TV's menu you should see an aspect ratio option. Try the different settings to see if you can find the best.

After trying to install STB picture geometry on TV is distorted

While it is possible to damage a TV by feeding it a signal with incorrect sync settings, it is unusual these days.  It has probably reverted to a different display mode.  I would try to look in the manual or the menus for a "Factory Default Settings" option or similar.  Once you restore the factory settings, the picture should return to normal, although you may have to change some settings back to the way you had them before the reset.  Good Luck!

It is obvous that the aspect ratio that you are watching the program in is the native mode if you see the proportions correctly. If the native mode was in 16:9, it would not stretch when you change to this mode.

The broadcaster may be down converting all their video to 4:3 because the majority of sets in his area are still on the old aspect ratio.
