    I have a 15.4" Polaroid flat screen. Sometimes a black box will pop up in front of the picture. I try to change channels or turn the tv off and on and sometimes the box will go away but sometimes not.

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


Hello
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.
OK.

VISABLE LINES IN PICTURE


Bulb replacement will only repair reduced brightness or contrast problem. Sometimes shadows or lines (usually curved or circular) appear in the image if the bulb is weak or faulty. This will show with the color turned off and a black and white image displayed.

Most visible color faults are caused by optical engine failure. Big cost, as the complete assembly has to be replaced.

Occasionally there are video processing or tuner problems that require serious troubleshooting to determine what board has to be replaced.

If the fault is not visible on the customer menu and appears only with input signal viewed, you may have a cable box or other signal input problem. Check various input signals to see if the problem is visible with all inputs.

Running the channel scan with vhf input signals sometimes clears up a lot of problems. Your cable company may have changed or adjusted rf modulators or other equipment and the tv needs to be aligned to the changed signal. Auto tuner scans will take care of these problems.

Blackout area on screen


Make sure the TEXT and CAPTION options are turned off.

I am not sure about the Sonny's, but on my Toshiba a black box appears when I inadvertently leave one of the close captioning (CC) on for text or captions on (such as CC1, CC2, etc.).
