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...

Usually this is because the display has been changed from 16:9 (widescreen) mode to 4:3 (standard) mode. On the front panel there's a button labelled "4:3 in Wide." Press this button to return to Widescreen mode. If it says "OSD Locked" then you need to hold the "Menu" key for several seconds to unlock the controls, before changing it to widescreen.
If that doesn't correct the problem then you need to adjust your computer's output resolution to a 16:9 ratio like 1920x1080 (1080p) or 1280x720 (720p.)
With the player in STOP mode, or without a disc inserted, press DISPLAY on the remote. Then press either the UP or DOWN arrow keys (on remote) to scroll down from LANGUAGE setup to SCREEN SETUP, then highlight the aspect ratio which best suits the connected TV, in this case 16:9 widescreen (according to the manual the default aspect is 4:3 letterbox). Once you have made the change, exit the setup. It should remember the setting you have made.
Pages 26 to 27 of the owner's manual illustrate the setup procedure for this model DVD player.
NOTE: some DVDs may be encoded as 4:3 titles, hence you will see black borders at the left and right sides of a widescreen TV. Not all DVD movies are encoded in the 16:9 aspect ratio.
However, you can check your player's setup menu just to be sure.
Check the cover of your DVD movies ... there may be one or more widescreen DVD's in your collection...
That should work.
What widescreen TV did you get? Brand / model.
If it is Samsung ... on the remote, press the "p.size" button (and wait) ... continue pressing and waiting after each press to see if the Samsung will adjust ... You may get a distorted pic ... like very short and very wide people.
This is actually due to the signal format being sent down from the transmitters/broadcaster. They by defauly output 4:3 which your tuner in your TV interprets and rejigs it into 16:9. Te adverts as they come on are seen by the tuner in your tv as a change in aspect ratio, and therefore your TV is trying to best display these. However, if you go to your screen settings, you can change the screen auto format to your choice and this chould ensure that the picture always gets set to your choice. If set on default, it will vary between 'wide' and 'smart'.
You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.
This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater.While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.
If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying.Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.
FYI:It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.
the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
