Vizio 32" HDTV10A aspect ratio problem

I just won a Vizio 32" HDTV10A in a raffle. I hooked up my cable box and dvd player, but the aspect ratio isn't working correctly. The normal view is fine, but when I switch to the Wide view it just stretches out the entire frame instead of enlarging it to fit the 1.85:1 aspect ratio that a lot of movies, and now tv shows, have. Basically, it makes it look nearly exactly the same as the Panoramic view. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    I can't figure out how to fix the aspect ratio. It's zoomed in and there's no way to get it out.

    we have the same problem on our 26" Vizio HDtv. Cannot figure out how to fix it. Resetting options to factory setting did not help.

Change the batteries in your remote. If your cat was laying on a button it could have drained them.

Here's tip - you can use your camera on your cell phone to see the IR signal coming out of your remote. Point the remote at your cam and press "On" or any button. You should see a bright flash with every key stroke.

Change screen from wide to regular our cable guy put it on wide my control will no longer change it


Vizio has a set of buttons on the left side where you can access your settings and change the aspect ratio of your TV. Though why you want it changed is beyond me. Wide screen is for 16:9 aspect ratios. At 4:3 (Standard) you won't be using your full TV picture.

What cables do you need to connect a dvd player to a vizio hdtv


If your dvd player has a hdmi hook up "easy" just use 1 hdmi cable from the dvd player to the tv. If not use the 5 cord for better picture quality.

Picture is to tall. it cuts off the top of the heads


It sounds like you have the image on the perspective. If you tv is 4:3 aspect ration the video source (cable box, dvd ) must be set for a 4:3. If you have a 16:9 ratio (widescreen) the soutrce should be set to 16:9..................Nevermind, Just looked it up you this TV is 4:3.

Your TV remote will have a button to toggle/change the aspect ratios of the TV. Button could be called picture/aspect/image etc. If you have an HD cable box you need to go into the video setting and chnage the aspect ratio to match the 4:3 tv.

If you need more help, please respond with more deatils.

I cannot change aspect ratio


If you are trying to change the aspect ratio on the television make sure you are sending an HD signal Via Component cables. I am not aware of a way to get HD cable without a PC cable card or box, it could be that your television is not receiving the proper signal (analog, or composite) to switch the aspect ratio on your particular television.
