Before calling a repairman, check the menu, if you see the problem on the menu then the set needs servicing, if not try one of the other inputs to make sure it is not the tv source that is causing your problem.

I don't want to go into details for you to fix it because if it is only 4 months old, you need to call for service. These tv's are all board replacement and are expensive to fix even on your own. Since it is in warranty defiantly get a sony authorized repair service to repair the set, the owner’s manual will have sony's phone number in it call them to get a service scheduled.

Sony also has an on-line tool to find a service center here

I cannot figure out how to adjust the aspect ratio. The people look very FAT and I have never been able to adjust any T.V. using the buttons on the set. Help! 32" visio does not have some features on the...


Its not called aspect ratio on the TV menu. Its likely called 'Format'. It could also be called cinema, wide, 16:9,4:3, Picture, etc. The remote is EXTREMELY likely to have the picture adjustment button. 'Auto' should work the best.
However...
Most cable pictures are in 4:3. This will leave black bands on the side of the screen. Zoom helps, but you loose the top and bottom of the picture.
Most DVDs are 4:3 (Standard) unless you connect with RGB cables or HDMI cable. The DVD may need to be switched to Progressive to get the best effect. An upconverting DVD will have the most impressive results.

ViewSonic 19" flat screen monitor goes black - intermittently


Hi,
There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm
