Re: sony triniton tv widescreen

It's called the aspect ratio - and on the WEGA design I think you've got a button on the remote labled picture mode.. If not or that doesn't work go into the menu and look for aspect or aspect ratio and rest that to 16:9...

Disable or turn 16:9 Enhancement off??

Hi have you got a button on the tvs remote that should change it like widescreen button you probably have looked but i am looking for manuall for your controll.
Usually its a button on the tv controll and should change it without acessing the menu option.
On most controlls it is labelled with exp for expand this should change the view from auto, 4:3, 16:9 have a look on controll for exp or sometimes labelled 16:9.
If you have manuall that list controll functions look and see if you can find it.
But it might just be that the telly dont give you this option.
Ill have a look and see if i can see manuall for your controll ill post back when i find anything ok let me know how you get on

As you can see, the screen isn't full, its kinda half, mom pressed something and i don't know how to fix it, please help.

The issue here is the "Format" or "Ratio" of the screen. Currently, it is set to Standard Format or a 4:3 ratio. It may also be set to 480i or 480P scan rate.

You should change it to Wide Screen or 16:9 ratio. Additionally, you will want to display High Definition images by selecting a scan rate of either 720P, 1080i or 1080P - depending on which choices are offered by the TV. Typically the remote will offer a choice of Format. It is possible that the source device (cable TV, DirecTV, Tivo, etc. has a command to cause this too. In any case, the TV, and other source appliances must be set to Wide Screen / 16:9 and 720P or higher to veiw full screen, HD images.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.

You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.

On Sony 36 iinch Trinitron TV, when I go to HDTV channels the picture size changes to widescreen. How do I adjust back to full screen on HD? I tried the "no zoom" button but that doesn't work. Cannot...

Please note that all HDTV channels project wide screen pictures. You can still go to settings and then picture mode and change the format to 4:3/full mode.

Every time i change channels on my tv the screen size changes Can you please tell me what I need to do to rectify this problem Many Thanks

Your channel display mode is set to auto i'd say.

Go into menu and find >

TV System.

Go to

Display Mode.

go to

Aspect Mode.

now you may choose what aspect you would like to watch you tv in.

You will have

4:3 PS

4:3 LB




I go with one of the first two, as 16:9 is widescreen and Auto is a bit random as you found out. These are only rough guidelines as i don't own a Samsung TV. But all setting are mostly the same on all TV Sets.

Hope this helps,

I'm assuming that you have a new widescreen tv. Your screen or cable box is currently set to 4:3 resolution. If you're using a cable box, you'll need to go into it's menu and change it to widescreen 16:9 format. It really depends on which type of cable box that you have. If you aren't using a cable box then you need to go into your tv's video settings and change those to 16:9 or stretch-to-fit. Please provide more information (make/model) of your cable box so that I can provide more detailed information. Good luck!!

How do I set the DVD picture to Full Screen as opposed to Wide Screen?

That is the way the DVD makers intended it to be. The TV cannot be adjusted to change that if it is a widescreen or "letterbox" movie.
