Since neither the specs nor the website mention widescsreen recording, I think it's a safe bet that it just shoots in 4:3.

The led screen is not working all the index comes up but when you record the screen is blank it records the sounds but no picture its the same through the view finder canon mv730i

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

How do i make this product 16:9? it seems to not let me.

See Page 39 of the Online Manual - link below
Goto Camera Menu> Camera Setup > 16:9 > On/Off Make sure you are in camera Mode - see page 46 - modes 16:9 can be used in See also page 77, for details of how 16:9 can be set and used - see below
  • The 16:9 mode is an electronically processed effect.
  • The 16:9 mode cannot be selected in the Easy Recording mode.
  • The multi-image screen cannot be used when the 16:9 format is selected.
  • Simultaneous recording on a memory card cannot be used when the 16:9 format is selected.
  • If you play back a 16:9 recording on a normal TV, the image appears vertically “squashed” (compressed).
