How do I stop my flat screen from automatically changing the aspect ratio?

I have a new computer and am using my 47in Samsung LCD flat screen as the monitor. It is hooked up through a Bose V25 home theater set up via HDMI cables. The problem I am encountering is with the aspect ratio. The display cuts off all the edges. I manually turned changed the aspect ratio to 'Just Scan' and it fixed the issue, temporarily.In a seemingly random fashion, the aspect ratio will revert back to what it was originally with all the edges cut off. If I change sources, it will generally revert. Is there a way for me to lock it in for that particular source?

SOURCE: sound no picture, which component is tcon board? where all audio/video/cable/hdmi plug in to?

I have LNS4692D. Returned from vacation, turned tv on - no picture. Tried turning tv off for 4 hours- nothing. Symptoms are: tv is on - no picture , just sound; menu doesn't show, volume bar doesn't show;E.Saving is working - the backlight is changing from lighter to darker.
Found this website and ordered T-con, otherwise known as the LCD panel driver board, p/n# Bn8101286a ( thanks premtech) from partstore.com for $124. Part number BN81-01286A A/S T-CON Board.
Installation:
1.Remove plastic cover. There is an arrow for each screw that needs to be removed. Make sure to unscrew pins next to VGA port. I've spent some time trying to figure out what else is holding the plastic panel until I found this pins.
2. Remove big metal shield in the middle of tv that is covering main components. This shield is being held by small black screws all around it.
At this point you will see cover of T-CON. Here is the picture
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=118863&d=1220531321 (thanks ldac9). Do not attempt to remove that cover yet. Proceed with a next step

3.Remove metal panel that holds main components. Locate big chrome screws that have arrows pointing to them and unscrew them. Remove 2 more screws on the bottom of the panel that holds it together with a box for cables. At this point the main panel will be lose
4. Carefully start lifting the panel. You will see that there are connectors going from components on the panel to components on the lower panel and T-CON. Carefully unplug these components and raise the main panel.
5. Remove 4 screws that holds T-CON cover. Pull the cover so that T-CON is completely exposed. The cover is connected by thin alluminum , don't hesitate to pull it , but don't rip it out.
6. Once T-CON is exposed you will see 2 red ribbons. I've spent some time to figure out how unplug those from old T-CON board. Here is the suggestion. Don't try to pull it out. All you need to do is to lift small plastic lever that is part of a connector. Then ribbon can be slided out. If not sure what to do, see how this is done on the new T-CON. It has a principle of buckle on airplain safety belts.
7. Remove old T-CON and install new you.
8. Follow reverse order.

I've never fixed TV before , but this was totally successful project.

Yes, it is possible the settings from your cable box maybe set to the wrong ratio eg:letterbox. Depending on what type of box you have, look in the cable box menu for a settings option, then change the aspect ratio to a different format.

How do I stop the aspect ratio from auto changing on my flat screen set up as the monitor for my computer?


When you set it to just scan the source will determine the scan. I would remove the bose from the unit and connect the cable or sat box directly to the hdmi in of the tv. if the problem persists check Samsung web site for software upgrade. If upgrade does not fix replace the main circuit board.

1280 x 1024 at 60 Hz (optimal) resolution is the maximum resolution with 16 color if the other computer had it on 32 bit color setting or the resolution of the monitor aspects ratio changed than it will not display anything on your computer
Solution is plug in your old monitor and change the settings to lowest with the aspect ratio as what the screen size is then plug in the new one that should do it

Picture too big for screen. It's a Samsung 40'' LCD


What source are you using and which model of Samsung?

Chances are its the Aspect ratio on the source or the Aspect ratio on the TV. Failing that the Zoom setting. A few more details would help immensly.

The picture on my LCD 52" 650 series TV makes everyone look short


There is an aspect ratio setting in your menu options. You will have to change the aspect ratio so you get a normal screen.
This will most likely fix your problem.
If by slight chance it doesn't, you will have to remove the back of the tv and find the manuyal adjustments for it.
All newer Tv's have the aspect ratio/picture change setting.

You need to change the aspect ratio of the screen. The cable box remote has an aspect ratio button and the tv remote also has an aspect ratio button or picture size button. You are probably on a zoom aspect since its too big.
