"Normal" looks "streched" because the origin of the video is normal, so it gets streched. If you play a "letterboxed" material (may be a DVD) it comes compressed, (vertically streched) so when you play it in letterbox it streches up to the rigth aspect ratio. Take a look at it in wikipedia.

How to change aspect ratio on sharp tv?


You cant change the aspect ratio. You can stretch and zoom programs . Some programs like movies are in letterbox and you can stretch to fill the screen, but the results are not perfect. Circles will be oval and you will cut off some of the viewable picture. This is normal

The Disks runs fine, never have any problems loading ANYTHING on it but when it loads PS1 Games the screen setting becomes quite odd. You dont see the whole screen (game screen) thus game play options dont...


It's not due to the compression at all. It's due to the limitations of the Snoy emulator. PS1 games output to 640×480 pixels (I'm using NTSC here, adjust if you live in PAL areas), but the PSP's screen is 480x272. In order to prevent weird streching, Sony desided to cut the screen size in half. So, the output of the ps1 emu is 320x240, exactly the same size that you see on your psp screen.

If you want to play with the streching, hit the home button, and under "Settings" you can adjust the screen size. Here is what the options do, as far as I know.
  • Fullscreen-changes the output full screen. "Letterboxes" (i.e., small black bars) it a bit to fit the 16x9 ratio.
  • Original-the 320x240 I just discribed above.
  • Normal-Streaches it a bit, and smooths out the picture
  • Zoom-Streches the picture even futher so that the width is equal to the width of the screen size.
Mind you, none of these modes ever make the emulator output a "better" picture with more pixels defined. They are all just streching of the 320x240 screen. I think this is because the psp is at it's limits, and rendering the extra pixels would lag the game too much.

My kids were playing with the buttons on the tv, and itseems like the picture is now "stretched" vertically - the tops of heads are cut off, and it seems like some of the picture is missing from the sides....


there should be a zoom, or strech, or even the letterbox option somewhere. What your describing is a enlarged picture that doesn't fir the screen, like if I select zoom on my remote.

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.

PS3 streches off the TV Screen


Try holding the power button on the ps3 for about 10seconds. It should beep as it normally would turning on, carry on holding the button until it restarts. This should restart the ps3 in standard mode so that it can be viewed via rca/scart connection.

Streched screeen!


I see more of this out in the field everyday. If you have a cable box or satelite receiver, then look for a format change on it. Usually in that components menu. If, you still cannot find the answer, reply back with the type of unit, if any, that control the channel on the set. I hope this helps.
