You are looking for the "PIP" (picture-in-picture) button on your remote or in your TV's user menu ("menu" button).

Finding this on the remote and pushing should do it. If not on the remote, you'll find a menu item.

Picture is stretched on wide screen a circle looks egg shape


Hello
This is an issue because most television programming is produced in a 4:3 aspect ratio. The minority of programming is high definition, which is produced in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Because televisions are made in either a standard (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) format, there is always a conflict with an image being stretched vertically or horizontally. In the case of widescreen televisions, the stretching is horizontal.
Picture Modes
Luckily, most if not all widescreen televisions have a picture mode that allows the user to toggle between a wide (16:9) and standard (4:3) mode. This means that a person can watch non-HD programming in the 4:3 picture mode, and then go to widescreen when watching HD programming. Some TVs have a picture mode that will automatically adjust to the correct aspect ratio. Other people will watch all programming in the wide picture mode, and learn to adjust to watching a stretched picture.
A stretched picture is when a 4:3 image is pulled on the sides to fill the entire screen. People and images end up looking fatter/wider and shorter.
So, what's the big deal?
Some people don't like a 4:3 picture stretched or distorted because it does reduce the overall visual and picture quality. Some people don't like the bars on the side of the screen when a widescreen is in a standard (4:3) picture mode because it looks different.
Solution
There is no fix-all solution for this issue, unless you own a TV that will automatically adjust to the intended aspect ratio. The stretching of the picture is a side-effect, the price we are paying for the better resolution that is digital and high definition. This is definitely something to consider when buying a television, but keep in mind that there is no right or wrong within this issue. It is just the way it is, and there is no way around it unless you buy a 4:3 aspect ratio television.
Hope these lines will clear the issue, if so do rate the solution

No picture or sound


Did you double check your connections with your AV cables. Otherwise you may want to try a new cable. Still make sure all connections are tight and secure and plugged into the right ports. If this doesn't work I would suggest call customer service for your DVD player.

Problems with the picture mode on my samsung 46''


Your TV is in DEMO-STORE MODE.
Go to menu, find Plug & Play option, start it, and when asked, select Home Mode, than Enter and than just Exit.

Enjoy Your TV!

Can't play dvd player on JVC tv; I don't have a JVC remote.


I hooked up a Pioneer DVD player to my TV and when I play a DVD the volume cannot be controlled by the TV. It just plays at one level and on the louder side. When I'm watching regular TV and the DVD player is on and playing a disc I start to hear the DVD soundtrack at the same time as the whatever I'm watching on TV. I should not be able to hear anything until I switch over to Video 1. Any suggestions?

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

Most likely your tv has a defective LCD panel. If it's in warranty, drop it to the warranty depot shop to repair.

Samsung lcd tv le32r8 (Picture - Movie setting)


The TV is probably in Shop mode, when your TV is initially turned on you can choose between Shop mode or Home Mode.
In Shop mode the TV automaticly returns to the standard setting after a while, they do this so customers can "play" with it.

Press down de Volume button and then hold down the Menu button for five seconds on the side panel of the tv.
