You either have failed 24vdc power supply section or failed backlight inverter board, check for 24vdc first, look for caps with leaking/bulging top.

How to adjust aspect ratio on sony kdl-v40xbr1


Hello
To take advantage of the wide mode feature on your TV, Set the DVD players' aspect ratio to 16:9. For details, refer the operating instructions supplied with your DVD player. Aspect ratio must be set with DVD player. Not with the TV. OK.

I have a sony bravi xbr ;the picture is sooo big i can't read the subtitles . i tried ti fix it ( from the instruction manual ) but nothing work . thank you !


Hi: Check you screens format button to change screen sizes, this button may also be labeled Aspect. Seems you are in ZOOM Mode, these buttons can also be found on cable boxes remote as well try pushing them to see if screen size change. If this does'nt help then do this with the TV in off posistion. Press the Display key on your remote, Then the Five key, then the Vol up key, then press power key. This will turn set on in service mode, you will see service options do not do anything but press the number 8 on remote and hit enter. This will rest tv to factory settings. All video setups and parameters you have set in user menu will result back to factory and will need to be redone. TV should shut down on its own and come back on on channel 3.

yOU SHOULD HAVE 2 MORE SETTINGS ZOOM AND EXTENDED ZOOM THIS SHOULD FILL OUT YOUR SCREEN, THE REASON FOR THE SMALLER PICTURE WHEN IN REGULAR CABLE IS BECAUSE IT IS SENT IN 4X3 FORMAT INSTEAD OF 16X9.

NORMAL OPTION GONE


the cable remote has a zoom feature in the settings. the zoom setting got turned on somehow. This feature overrides the picture size settings on the tv.
so, not a tv problem at all, but easily missed.

Cannot view the full picture


First, you have to tell me how the cable box is connected to the TV, by HDMI or component. If it is connected by HDMI, the cable box settings will override the picture size settings on the TV. It may be as simple as resetting the picture size on the cable box, but I am not familiar with the type of cable boxes that Comcast uses.
