Question about Toshiba 40H80 40" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv wont go to 16:9

I dont have the original remote, and I cant seem to find any other way to get the tv to get out of the 4:3 mode, its very annoying when trying to watch widescreen movies. Ive tried looking in the manual it only says to hit the button on the remote, tried hitting everything in the on screen menus. Would they really make the remote the only way to change it?

Picture size

I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but:
1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio.
2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays.
NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options.
4:3 Programming
[Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen.
[Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off.
[Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal.
16:9 Programming
[Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is.
[Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size.
[Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation.
[Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation

Cannot get full screen picture. seems like I still have a 36 inch tv. It is a 42 inch LG plasma hdtv

It seems like you're expecting a 16:9 ratio picture. If you're sending a 4:3 ratio signal to the TV, you'll get a 4:3 ratio picture. An option would be to use the remote and set the TV to a 16:9 ratio picture, but that'll stretch the picture and make everything look fat. Another option would be to use the remote and zoom in, but that'll chop off the top/bottom of the picture a bit. Either case would be annoying. Some make matters even more annoying, some programs are broadcasted in a 16:9 ratio signal, but the actual picture is really 4:3 ratio. So...... as long as the pictures don't look skinny, fat, or chopped off, just accept it. If you're really that picky, just watch new Blu Ray movies only.

I have a sylvania flat screen tv when i get home tonite find out the kids have done something to the tv it seems they have zoomed it in but cant seem to figure what they did plus i cant find my book that...


They've probably changed the screen ratio from 4:3 to 16:9, or vice-versa. You didn't state which model of TV you have so I'm not sure which buttons you have on your remote, but there should be a button on your remote with "SCREEN MODE" or "SIZE" written on it. If you have this button try pressing it slowly but repeatedly until the picture size returns to normal or it says "AUTO".

If you don't have this button or can't get it to work, please post back with your TV model number and I will supply the correct instructions for returning your picture to the correct size.

Cant get the dmtech lq17xts tv's freeview to work

General reset procedure for DM tech is:
1. Have Analogue station showing,
2. Press display button on remote,
3. With display info panel in view on screen, press 1 1 Line buttons on remote, this should bring up reset menu on left hand side of screen.
4. use up/down arrow buttons on remote to select either Reset or EEPROM then use right arrow button on remote to select the appropriate procedure

NB - on my set, selecting OFF the annoying melody that plays when the TV is turned ON/OFF diasbles Digital TV (Freeview). Turning ON the annoying melody makes DigiTV work again!

Cant change channels

Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at Good Luck
