Model 51f59a hd widescreen aspect settings dont take and picture too big
The remote is misplaced, yet even when I tried to fix this problem with the remote, I couldnt. I try selecting ASPECT from the menu, then attempt to set a different size other than 16:9 or 16:9 zoom. it seems to only allow these settings whether "auto select " is checked or not. While in another menu I try to reset the factory settings and this doesnt work either.
Now the picture is so bad you cant hardly view it because peoples heads are chopped off or the bottom of the screen is missing. How can I reset the picture size or get it to switch to a different aspect?
Re: model 51f59a hd widescreen aspect settings dont take...
I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.

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.
It might help if you listed the brand and model of your TV, but usually on the remote you will see some sort of mode button. You can change the picture size there. Or you can go into your system menu and change it in the display menu. The typical ones are widescreen, zoom, stretch, etc. Also try changing the picture aspect ratio. 16:9 will give you widescreen while 4:3 will give you regular. Also, another problem might be that the channel you are watching or your cable box is not in HD. If the channel is not specifically an HD channel, the widescreen setting will not work properly and you will need to adjust it to a different setting to keep from getting the black bars on the side. Hope that helps.
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.
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.
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
Make sure you are in the correct input. Did the installer connect the cable box to the television in two places? If so you'll want to choose the correct input of the two. Also make sure your cable box is set to the correct resolution for your television set i.e. if you have a 720p set it to 720p not 1080i and vice versa. Look for an hd zoom# button or format button or aspect button on your cable or satellite remote to adjust the picture size. If it is not on the remote the picture adjustment setting is in the menu/setup of your cable box or satellite box.
you may need to adjust the aspect ratio of the picture, there is typically an "aspect" button on the remote that will adjust the picture from widescreen, super widescreen 16:9 ratio and sometimes you can zoom in. try that
have you tried resizing it with the button again ?
some channels just will not look as good in a zoom or aspect ratio when they are older recorded movies that are not digital recorded or in HD ( high definition )
Do you still have the original remote? If so there is a button that says "Pix shape" that will change your aspect ratio for you. If you are watching something in HD it should say "full". If it is analog it will say "normal" in 4x3 format. If you want it stretch hit it till it says "zoom 1" or "zoom 2". If you don't have the original remote I am not sure how you would change it. You can find them on ebay if you need one. Hope this helps.
Information as to the type of signal input is needed to resolve this problem. Does it appear in
zoom mode when playing a dvd, or just in catv mode? Some times an HD cable box must be reset to
a particular aspect ratio. This can be done by reading the owners manual of the cable box manufacturer. Scrivitron
