I cannot adjust the aspect, even though the remote control appears to be working. The aspect is stuck on "Just", making people appear short and squat.

    You had it write about the cable box. I had been changed to stretch, rather than normal. Thanks.

It could be a setting on your cablebox or satelite box.
make sure your settings are for 1080i and 480i on the 4:3 over ride.
if you have satelite, push the format button, on the top or sometimes bottom of the remote.
if you have a cablebox, go into menu or settings, then find the output formats section. under that section you have video outputs, and you need to set it to 1080i for hd channels.

If your tv is truly stuck on just format, you may need to "hard boot" or reset your tv. unplug it from power and wait 2 minutes. then plug it in, wait 30 seconds and turn it back on and see if it behaves correctly.

many people have issues because they do not have the hd boxes hooked up with hd cables. only hdmi, component video (5 rca cables) or dvi will provide this. make sure you are using hdmi or component video from your sat or cable box to ensure you get the correct hd signal. let me know what you find, we can solve this for sure.

Doors not opening even if they are unlocked


My 2009 Sebring does the same thing occasionally but only the drivers door gets stuck (dead locked - even though the locks appear to pop up).
The solution I have found once this happens is:
1) The car needs to be driven (crawl in thru the passenger door) -even just a short distance
2) Engine shut off & doors locked with remote (after you've exited from the passenger door of course)
3) Leave turned off for 10 minutes
4) Doors will now open when unlocked with the remote

Flat Screen Insignia TV picture too big? How to adjust picture size?


When the picture is too large there are three possible solutions at least.

Starting with the simplest two: There are buttons on the remote controls (cable/satellite and television) that control the picture size. On the cable remote it is usually on the bottom, and it says hd zoom. Press it and it will size the picture down for you. On the television or satellite remote it might say view mode, picture mode, format or aspect.

Now, the more difficult solution if the above doesn't work: The settings might not be right in the cable box/set top box. If the television is a 720p television, make sure the cable box/set top box is set for 720p and not 1080i even though they're the same (yes, yes I know). Also make sure you are not connecting a cable/set top box to the coaxial rf input when you have the capability to connect to a component or hdmi cable. I hope this helps.

Picture on screen is too big head of people are cut off it does not show complete picture


Use your cable or satellite tv remote to adjust the aspect ratio. If you have cable there is a button on the remote called hd zoom and it has this symbol: #. On the satellite tv remotes it usually says format or aspect. You might even have to go into the cable box/satellite tv receiver menus to adjust the aspect ratio/picture format. Once you have done so you can fine tune the picture even further with the television remote's wide/format/aspect/zoom button. Also check and make sure your television is on the right input and that your cable box/satellite tv receiver is set at the right resolution for the television 1080p/1080i/720p.

I recently installed a 32 inch LCD TV. The picture appears to be oversized and I do not know how to reduce the heigth and width.


You should download the user manual so you will know how to make the adjustment;
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Insignia-IS-LCDTV32-TVs-manual/id/8223ag521/t/2/

You need to look for 'ASPECT', 'P.SIZE', 'ZOOM' I.E. on the remote control.

HOW CAN I RESET TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS SO THAT I CAN MAIPULATE THE PICTURE MODE FROM THE REMOTE? PRESENTLY I CANNOT PERFORM ANY PICTURE MODE CHANGES AND THE TV APPEARS TO BE STUCK IN THE NORMAL SETTING,...


If you are connected to a cable box or satellite receiver and it is high definition (hdmi or component cables) you would manipulate the screen size with the hd zoom, aspect, or format button on the cable or satellite company's remote.

If the television remote control also has it you would further adjust the screen size with a view mode, aspect, or format button

Need to adjust from full screen to wide screen on Runco SC3050


You need to use the remote, press the Menu button... on the menu that pops up on the screen, use the remote to scroll down to where it says "aspect ratio", and then select enter.

From that menu, you can select all the different aspect ratios that your Runco can perform.

Here is a link for the owners manual, straight from Runco.

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.
