This is either due to some incompatibility or change of format of picture. Also the color system should be same like PAL/SECAM etc.

Do all Blu-ray discs play with the black area at the top and bottom of the screen; like letterbox format? How can I expand the picture to full screen size on my LG 42LD450 tv? Maybe I'm just not...


They all play with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Sometimes they will be letterboxed and other times you will get a full screen with them. On your T.V. remote there should be a picture size button or format or a zoom button that should get you full screen.

I am having trouble getting the screen size back to full size. We used the zoom but that makes the picture to big. My TV is a Auria EQ5588


Hi, The " Size " of a flat panel tv ( when not in zoom mode ) is actually controlled by your programming, if using an hdmi cable from an Hd/Blu-ray player-then whatever format the disc was recorded in is what you'll see ( widescreen/letterbox ) black bars at top & bottom of scrteen ) or full screen. Local over the air digital H.D. brodcast's from networks varie from full screen to letterbox-satellite and cable that are standard definition will almost always letterbox a screen for you. Using T.V.s tuner may alleviate most of the issues. Good luck and I hope this helped. Prodzilla

I purchased a DVD that states: Widescreen Format (Aspect Ratio 1.85.1) I'm unable to get 'widescreen/letterbox'. The movie shows up full screen or a 'stretched' view. All other movies I've...


On the DVD recorder remote: press function menu button: enter setup screen - scroll down to connection - TV aspect - select either 16:9 / 4:3 Letterbox / 4:3 Pan&scan. If you are using an older TV which is not a widescreen, set the aspect to '4:3 Letterbox'.

You should now be able to view your DVD movies from this machine through a 4:3 standard TV in letterbox format. (some DVDs do not allow pan&scan so letterbox or widescreen is recommended). Very rare that a DVD title is not compatible with 4:3 TVs. I assume your deck is set to output 16:9 aspect by default.

I find this is the cheapest and easiest solution and can save lots of dollars in service call-outs. You can always reset the unit back to shipping condition later if you need to, or in the rare case of digital channels disappearing from your tuner memory.

I cant get the whole picture to fit the screen. When I watch games the score is cut off.


This is most likely a setting on your TV, like stretch, or fit, or possibly on your cable box, or dish receiver. look at your dish or cable box settings and turn off any screen adjustments. Example under wide screen setting is strech , zoom, letterbox (choose letterbox).
The TV has these settings as well.

Wide screen lcd simple question.


Hi pooing stone,

You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.

This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater. While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.

If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying. Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.

FYI: It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
