Sony Bravia - Picture in ZOOm Mode

The picture seems to be in zoom mode all of the time. It shows full but the picture is zoomed in. I even get the wide screen on non-HD channels. The normal mode seems to have dissappeared. Any thoughts?

    This problem just started for us over the holidays too. We've tried every adjustment. I'm wondering if it's something to do with the feed (?) We have Comcast digital cable.

I corrected mine by adjusting my cable settings. It had been set to "zoom" / "wide" mode. I reset to "normal" and now channels look fine again.

How do i fix a too wide picture on my sony kdl40ex500?


Why are you using 4:3 letterbox? It might be the default aspect ratio but widescreen tvs should be set to 16:9 aspect ratio.

1 Answer

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

Sir press the screen mode button in your remote below input select button, press the screen mode button repeatedly to select smart, 4:3, wide, zoom, or 14:9.

  • Wide- Display wide screen 16:9 broadcast in the correct proportions.
  • Zoom- Display cinemascopic letter box format broadcasts in the correct proportions.
  • 14:9- Display 14:9 broadcasts in the correct proportions. As a result, black border areas are visible on the screen.

I have connected my laptop to my sony 40ex403 bravia. The screen is centred on the tv screen. How do get it to full screen size?


Hello.
On your TV remote control there is button "Picture mode" or similar name. You can change image to "zoom" or "wide" by using it. Sometimes if in "zoom" mode it still not fill whole screen - you have to change display settings in you notebook for external display.
Regards.
Russ.

The picture takes up only 2/3rds of the screen. I've gone through the menu and settings and can't seem to fill the screen with wide zoom, full, or any other settings. Help!


I don't know if this will help. If you are using a cable box or satellite receiver they too might have a format, zoom button, or view mode. It seems like they all have different names for them.Good luck.

Wide screen mode won't go back to "normal".


Was exactly what you said. The cable box settings were in wide mode. Couldn't figure it out at all. Funny thing was too.. on my cable box remote, the button under the #9 button is the # button.. it doesn't say zoom at all.. but it totally controls the zoom.

So thanks for that.. AND thanks for saying "under the #9 on the cable remote" instead of just saying .. the zoom button.

Thanks again!!!

ZooMING Problem


You can't zoom when you are in 3MP mode (default highest resolution). The phone can only zoom in VGA/1MP/2MP modes.

To switch modes:
Start the Camera
Choose "Settings"
Choose "Picture Size"
Pick "2 MP" or "1 MP" or "VGA"

Note: Lowering the Picture Size lowers your picture resolution and quality.
