I have a brand new Toshiba 42" LCD HDTV and I want to keep the picture size at 16:9. When I shut off the TV, it goes back to a smaller picture size and I have to make it larger by using the picture size button. How do I make the picture always stay at 16:9 setting.

You need to save settings after you go to picture manu.
It will be easier if you save screen format to autodetect.

If you are using a hdmi cable take it off and switch to component cables if the problem goes away keep it that way. Sometimes the hdmi hookups have bugs like this.

Picture size does not work


Unplug the power cord for about an hour or more and provide supply to the tv .

At times the power supply can cause this problem .

If you have any substances generating EM waves in and around tv remove it .

A simple question - My new 42" LG tv is fine -


You should be able to change the aspect ratio to fit the size of your screen. This will be the 16:9 4:3 16:10 settings.

You can access these by going to MENU---> PICTURE -----> Select ratio that works----> exit out and watch TV.

IF this will not fix it you need to look into the signals being fed to the TV as sometimes they can have a funny effect on the output picture. Some cable boxes will alter the picture and then it won't come out right on the TV. If it is all inputs doing this tho then changing just the Aspect ratio on the TV should solve the problem.

I have an 42LG50 and the picture is now a smaller box on the screen and the manual is now help in enlarging the picture, any ideas?


You possibly have the screen set to the 4:3 ratio. On the remote control use the aspect ratio button to toggle through the different size screen formats eg 16:9 etc. this will enlarge the picture to fill the screen.

42' hd tv has stretched picture makes people look fat


you have a few settings to size the picture as best as it can be sized.
format, aspect and size . try setting the TV (remote) format to full, fill or just.TV size to 16x9.
If also using a cable/satelitte remote set it to 16x9 size, stretch format/aspect and 1080i output. then just press the # key on cable remotes or format key on Sat remotes to size it best on each channel.
with 16 formats available, today's TVs are doing their best to keep up.
hope this helps

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...


kyleolver,
16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.
