32 inch LCD Acoustic Solutions TV - Picture zoom locked in 4:3

My young son seemed to lean with both hands on the tv remote tonight and now the tv appears to be locked in 4:3 zoom. I can get into the menu and change the zoom to panoramic etc but the actual picture doesn't change, its as if its locked or something? has anyone has a similar problem? or can anyone help me get it fixed. The TV is a 32 inch LCD Acoustic Solutions TV.

thanks

Greg

SOURCE: No Picture on Viewsonic TV

That is a coincidence. My tv went out the same night. But mine wont even turn on at all. So far I have had no luck finding anyone to repair it. Let me know if you figure something out and I will do the same.

You would look for a format button on your remote.
Dish Network: bottom left the asterisk "*" button
DirecTV: top left, second from the top labelled "format"
Cable remote: look for format, zoom, or aspect ratio

Pressing this button should scroll you through the options.

Hello,
in this case i have to know if your tuner is working fine or not. First of all i like you to connect any external player Exp. DVD or blue-ray player if that works with audio then it is inverter board. if audio doesn't work then its main board. Also you will find out that if dvd is working fine on your tv than your tv setting is wrong or the tunes is dead. either way if tuner is gone then you have to change the main board. Either way let me know what went wrong i can provide you more information about what part need and where can you get it from.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. Also rate me if you like this post.
Thanks.

2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.

5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

My son some how used the universal remote to set the pass word on the V-chip controls. Now I am locked out and cant get any channels.


Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Original remote lost. have universal remote. cannot program TV


On the right hand side of this television there are panel buttons. It appears that your son in law knocked the tv out of the correct input. Press the input button in order to cycle through the 5 inputs. Typically pressing the input button on the side panel of a television and pressing it again and again and again will make it change inputs. Universally the buttons on the tv panel function as follows: Channel up moves the cursor up. Channel down moves the cursor down. Volume + moves the cursor right. Volume - moves the cursor left.
Hope this helps

My sis gave me an old samsung tv. It is just for my son and his x-box. Unfortunately there is no remote control. When switched on it is saying PANEL LOCK. Is there any way i can fix this. Model No TI-14N3....


hello you could try this The front panel of the COMBI VISION can be locked to prevent it
from being used by young children for example.
1 To lock the front panel, display the television menu by pressing MENU
( ).
2 Select the SETUP option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the required
number of times.
3 Press the + button.
4 Select the PANEL LOCK option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the
required number of times.
5 Select ON by pressing the + button.
Result: The buttons on the front panel no longer have any effect.
6 To unlock the front panel, set the PANEL LOCK option to OFF.Another option would be to buy a universal remote from say - Argos carefully open it and use your own batteries and use that remote to unlock the TV then return the remote to Argos or if keep the remote if the original is lost. i hope it helps

regards

Zoom control


Use the menu key on the set it has a size selection in the menu set it on widescreen or 16:9 I suggest buying a new original remote as even a new RCA universal remote may not have the ZOOM or aspect control on them.
