Black and white format on 26" insignia hdtv (720p)

When I change the aspect ratio to widescreen, everything looks fine, except on the black and white movies. On the left and right hand side of the screens, the colors dont' seem the same. I'm new to hdtv, maybe this is something normal. Not sure.

    subject says it all... i connected a tivo mini set to 720p and the TV displays the image in the center of the screen with borders on not only the top and bottom but on the left and right as well... Pressing zoom doesn't fix the issue (correctly) but widescreen2 is 'kinda close'.

Go to Best Buy and see if they have your same Model on display and change the aspect ratio and see how it is. If it's normal there then to me it sounds like a software up-grade might be in order. It might just have a software glitch.

CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

I re-scanned my channels this weekend because I lost HD on 2 of my local channels. Now I have HD back, but I have 2 black lines on each side the picture on all of the HD channels. How do I get rid of the...


A broadcaster will transmit an HD channel in 1 format. This may be 720p or 1080i, both of which are HDTV formats. HDTV formats have an aspect ratio of 16:9. SDTV or standard definition broadcast have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Because not all content is record in an HD format (ex: Judy Judy), the broadcast is faced with 2 options. #1, stretch the 4:3 picture do that it fills the 16:9 canvas. #2, simple place black side bars on each side of the 4:3 image. What you are seeing is the latter of the 2 options. You will notice a change during the evening programming. The bars are only there when the content is not HD. You can use the WIDE feature of your TV to stretch the picture so that it fills the screen, just like broadcaster option #1 above.

Since you don't mention how you're receiving the signal, I'm assuming you use a cable box or computer. Adjust the output settings (e.g. 720p, 1080p) on the box and then adjust your TV settings. If it's a computer, you'll need to adjust the video card settings to a compatible aspect ratio (e.g. 1366x768) for the desktop to display properly on the TV. Details can be found in the owner's manual.

Picture is too big for screen


You will have a button on the _original_ remote that says Format, Aspect Ratio, Zoom, Size or just AR. It will cycle through Normal, Stretch, Partial Zoom, Zoom, Gray Bar, or the like. You are not in Normal but in one of the Zooms. Stretch is used to make 4x3 movies fill a 16x9 screen, may not be desirable. Zoom is used to fill the 16x9 screen with movies that have been letter boxed. Gray Bar fills the sides of a 4x3 picture on a 16x9 set with gray to "avoid" burn in. Use normal except zoom on LB. -Ken

On my Insignia LCDTV26 I have almost 3" of black screen on the right and left side of the picture.


This is normal if you're watching a 4:3 (full screen) broadcast or movie on your widescreen (16:9) TV. You can adjust the screen aspect by going into the Settings Main Menu and selecting System, then Aspect Ratio. I hope this helps!

Bought a 19inch LCD Insignia TV yesterday at Best Buy. Everthing works fine except the picture won't fill out the whole screen. Can't find anything in the menu to adjust this.


On you remote control or panel buttons press the menu button. Using you on screen menu, use the up and down arrows to find the Settings Function, use right arrow to enter sub-menu. Use the up and down arrows to find the aspect ratio setting. Use the right arrow to enter the sub-menu.From here you can change the picture setting to : Normal wide 1: Wide 2 : Zoom: Cinema. Once you found your preferred viewing picture, set you choice with the enter button. Then use the menu or escape buttons to close the on screen menu. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Aspect Ratio not responding/always in "Full" mode


Normally, when I see this problem in the customer's home, I find the main culprit to be the cable box. The remote for the cable box may have a button on it to change the format or picture size. You may have to go into the menu of the cable box to change the format setting. Hope this helps.
