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.

Normallly, if the format button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

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.

the description you gave was the long way right click on my computer, select properties then device manager, you will be in the same place but lots faster, plug and play does not identify the monitor or its compatible display resolutions, right click on the desktop select properties then display settings, go into advanced tab and look at the monitor, and the adapter, you can play with the setting until you find one that works, 1400 x 900 may not be supported by the video card(adapter) so that may be why your loosing the video settings.
hope this helps.

Set resolution to the native 1680 x 1050. Then, using the buttons on the monitor, go into the monitor's menu. go down to "Image Setting", go to "HDMI Mode", then select "PC Mode". This should help everything fit on screen correctly.
