Random ARC Picture Size Change

While watching the tv, the size of the picture changes as if the ARC button is being selected. We have had the tv for a month and the problem occurred a week ago after my daughter had 'played' with the remote control - I think she held down the ARC button! I have tried the usual things ... turning off the power to the tv, selecting another tv size through the ARC button, and resetting the factory settings through the Menu options, but this only works while watching at that time. If I then watch something on Sky that has been pre-recorded the problem comes back. Any suggestions? Thanks. the picture of the becomes smaller than that of its original size

    Same deal. It started after the kids messed with the remote. It does not happen on HD channels though.

The picture exceeds the size of the screen and the outside of the picture is missing


Change the image size with the 'picture size' or 'format' button on the remote. On some tv's you have to go into the menus to change the size if there's no button on the remote control.

A simple question - My new 42" LG tv is fine -


You should be able to change the aspect ratio to fit the size of your screen. This will be the 16:9 4:3 16:10 settings.

You can access these by going to MENU---> PICTURE -----> Select ratio that works----> exit out and watch TV.

IF this will not fix it you need to look into the signals being fed to the TV as sometimes they can have a funny effect on the output picture. Some cable boxes will alter the picture and then it won't come out right on the TV. If it is all inputs doing this tho then changing just the Aspect ratio on the TV should solve the problem.

How to setup picture in picture function on my tv. panasonic viera 42-px600u


This is controlled by the Split and Swap buttons on the remote; the size of the second picture can be adjusted with the Aspect button. First press split and use the Input button to select the source of the right picture of the split screen (TV channel or video inputs). Then press Swap and use the input button to select the source of the second screen. Swap again if desired or press Aspect to change the size of the main screen window. However, it is not available if you are using the HDMI, PC and SD Card viewing mode. Since the TV doesn't have dual digital tuners, you can't watch two different digital channels on the split screen.

The manual for the Panasonic TH-42PX600U is available from from Panasonic here: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Televisions/Plasma-HDTVs/model.TH-42PX600U . See page 18 of the manual, page 10 of the PDF.

I hope this helps.

Full tv screen is not being diplayed horzontally.


First thing to check is the picture size. You can view many program formats in a variety of picture sizes
  1. Natural
  2. TheaterWide 1
  3. TheaterWide 2
  4. TheaterWide 3
  5. Full
  6. 4:3 HD
  7. Native
  8. Dot by Dot.
The format of the image will vary depending on the format of the signal you are currently watching from you cable or satellite provider. Select the picture size that displays the current program the way that looks best to you.

To select the picture size using the remote control:
  1. Press I on the remote control.
  2. While the Picture Size screen is open, you can do one of the following to select your desired picture size:
• Repeatedly press I.
• Press the corresponding Number button (0–6) while the Picture Size screen is open.
• Press B or b while the Picture Size screen is open.

To select the picture size using the menus:
  1. Select Picture Size in the Theater Settings menu.
  2. Press C or c to select the desired picture size setting.
  3. Highlight Done and press T.
Some of the picture sizes may not be available depending on the receiving signal format from your cable or satellite provider (those will be “grayed out” in the Picture Size screen).


Second thing to check is the Native Mode which restores the size of the picture by the 3-5% that is generally lost during the normal over scanning that occurs on traditional sets. It also avoids unnecessary scaling of 1920 x 1080 HD signals. I hope this helps and good luck!

I have a T5054 TV and the picture has zoomed in and is way too big, however in the picture settings menu the zoom option is not highlighted in Component mode.


There could be a problem, but verify the settings as listed in the owner's manual as follows:

1 Press the MENU button to display the menu.
Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select Picture, then press the ENTER button.
2 Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select Size, then press the ENTER button.
3 Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select the screen format you want.
Press the ENTER button.
Press the EXIT button to exit.
16:9 : Sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode.
Zoom1 : Magnifies the size of the picture on the screen.
Zoom2 : Expands the Zoom1 format picture.
Wide Fit : Enlarges the aspect ratio of the picture to fit the entire screen.
4:3 : Sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode.
Just Scan : Use this function to see the full image without any cutoff when DTV
or HDMI 720p/1080i signals are input.
Press the P.SIZE button on the remote control to change the picture size.


And realize the restrictions as listed:

• In TV, VIDEO, S-VIDEO, and COMPONENT(480i, 480p) modes, all screen
modes can be selected. (16:9 ➞ Zoom1 ➞ Zoom2 ➞ 4:3)
• In COMPONENT(720p, 1080i) or HDMI(720p, 1080i) mode, 16:9, 4:3 and
Wide Fit can be selected.
• In Zoom1, Zoom2 and Wide Fit modes, you can move the picture on the
screen by pressing the ▲ or ▼ button.
•You can not change the picture size when PIP is set to Double.
•When Double ( , ) mode has been set in PIP, the Picture Size cannot
be set.
•Wide Fit can be used when watching a Digital HD (High Definition) signal.
Wide Fit sets the optimum picture format by expanding it both horizontally and
vertically. For example, you can reset the picture in 4:3 format to 16:9. Wide Fit
does not support all external devices (DVD, VCR etc.).


Keep us posted.
