Went Wide Screen - how do I get it back to normal?

My TV went wide screen (letter box format) and I have tried everything I can think of to get it back to full screen. The DVD plays full screen - the TV plays wide screen.

Any suggestions?

    Sadly this is not the problem because it just went on its own and my other TVs are fine. In DVD mode I can switch between letter box and full screen but not in TV mode.

All TV stations in the US are going digital in the next 11 months, and the format most have adopted is exactly what you describe...accordianman

    Okay, if the pix on this TV can display full screen when playing DVDs, then the only problem you may have is that you have selected the 16:9 ratio for your TV tuner, because if there was a problem with the set display, you would not be able to get a full screen at all. So, check your settings...accordianman

I have wide screen picture and dont know how to get full screen picture


Some sets in this size range will not format the picture in HD at full screen but only 4x3 or letter box format.

Google the model number with "specs" or consult the owner manual to see what the set is designed for.

I have an 32 inch LCD tv which is about 2 yrs old. Was watching tv when the screen went from normal viewing to zoom1. Followed directions from manual, which said to select imput on the remote then select...


Try this. On your remote control there should be a button that says "Aspect" hit that button and it will probably say "zoom1" or "zoom". If you continue pressing the button it will give you several option. My TV is set to "Wide" which is what I am sure yours should be as well. Or simply continue pressing the button until the picture is at the setting you are accustom too.
I hope this helps with the problem,Jason

Sony bravia picture to large for screen


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.
  • Smart- Display conventional 4:3 broadcast with an imitation wide screen effect. The 4:3 picture is stretched to fill the screen.
  • 4:3- Display conventional 4:3 broadcast non-wide screen TV in the correct proportions.
  • 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.

How to get an undistorted picture without cropping. This is an Olevia, and it is not listed below.


I assume you have a wide screen tv? most TV show are broadcast in a square (4:3) format, on a wide screen television the screen is rectangular, so to fit the square picture on the rectangle screen you have to either crop the top and bottom, or stretch and distort the image. the only real solutions are either to watch everything in the 4:3 format (leaving the sides of your screen blank), or subscribe to HD which will broadcast most programs in a wide screen format with out distortion.

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!!!

It sounds like you accidentally enabled a zoom feature or something similar.

Most remote controls should have a clearly labeled "zoom" button or a "picture size" option. If not, go into your TV's menu and look for something zoom related.

If this doesn't work, just go ahead and toy around in your TV's menu. I strongly suggest writing down the default settings so you can go back to them if you screw something up.

Good luck!

Wide screen movies dont fill screen


This is normal because they are broadcast in a widescreen format (If they fit the screen the aspect ratieo would be off on the picture!)

Can't get picture in wide format on the menu. 16:9 and 4:3 only.


I had the same problem with a 50". The only way I could fix it was to set my Bose system to 4:3 format and the tv to 16:9. Now you can use the zoom to get the right size

good luck
