SOURCE: prob. with aspect ratio
The key word here is dropped,was the unit ok before? how hard was it dropped? if the tv is only a 4:3 screen then it can not give you a 16:9 AR unless the dvd can change that, it probably has the main circuit board broken somewhere and it needs professional help.Let's hope is not major damage.

You cant change the aspect ratio. Polaroid built this unit with a non-standard format. Here is what I found:
Don't be thrown off by other wide-screen aspect ratios. When shopping for wide-screen displays--especially flat-panel LCDs--you may see aspect ratios such as 15:9 or 16:10. They are, for all intents and purposes, close enough to 16:9 to be considered synonymous. Unless you're extremely sensitive to geometry, it's doubtful you'll notice the slight stretching or squashing they introduce.

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

SOURCE: cannot change aspect ratio
If you are connected to a HD cable or satellite box, the aspect ratio is set by that box. If it is set for 1080i 16:9 wide screen mode then your TV is locked at that ratio. This is good considering you have a Hi-Scan 1080i television in the Sony KP57HW40. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...
