Question about iLO 3200 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Ilo 32" 3206

I'm having the same problem with the letterbox being the primary picture. I can't get it to full screen. I've read the manual for troubleshooting and I'm having no luck. I've only had this tv for about 3 mos. I hope you can help me with this. my husband is disabled and this is his lifeline. He watches movies/tv all day. This just started last night.

    Ok, the remote control is just very basic with it having a menu to select volume, brightness, etc in that area, contrast, etc. There is not a selection to choose the format. Not even trying to select or find where it might be but NOT! We're wondering is there something a tv repairman could look at on the innerds.

    we don't what else to do The tv has a great colorful picture and we hate to get rid of it. Mom needs a TV so if we can get it "out of the letterbox" she would be happy. I don't know where your located, but we could try a local tv repair. What do you think.

    The format button just go througn setting of brightness, tinting, etcl like that. upon playing with the minor buttons there is nothing there to show format button. Now this iLO tv was not a big seller and the company has already folded and bankrupt. There is a great picture on it and we hate to get rid of It's a 32". I think what we'll do is find someone local to look at it to work on getting the screen out of the widescreen format. If that doesn't work out then we'll ditch it. Thanks alot for help and ideas.

Look for a "format" button on your remote control. This button may also be called "aspect" or aspect ratio. Pushing this button several times should scroll you through the variety of display options.

If not, then I'll need the source, antenna, cable, or satellite.

Cant get full screen picture on my Sky tv channel


The set or a box if used may be able to correct this--some programs are only in letterbox or 4x3 format.

Question: Does the set play a full screen version of a DVD?

Hi Anthony,

You're describing what is called letterbox and pillerbox. Letterboxing is when there are two horizontal bars - one at the top and one at the bottom of the screen with a wide picture between. Pillerbox is when there are two vertical bars - one on the left edge and one on the right edge of the screen with a tall picture between.

The settings on your TV (and on your cable box, satellite box, DVD player, etc.) tell the TV how to display a picture that will not fill the screen completely. If the program source (an older video-taped TV show, non-widescreen version DVD, etc) was not originally "shot" or saved in widescreen format, the TV offers you a choice on how to display the image. They ask if they should stretch or zoom to fill the screen (and you have to deal with the skinny / tall images or lost portions of the picture); or maintain the aspect ratio (not stretching or zooming) by leaving a part of the screen blank (grey or black) by inserting bars left and right or top and bottom of the screen.

Start out by telling the devices that send pictures in a format that matches you TV's screen ratio. I am assuming you've got a wide screen HDTV which would mean it should be set to "16 x 9" (a.k.a. 16:9) ratio display. If you have it set for 4 x 3 (a.k.a. 4:3) you should change it. Look for a setting on your TV that asks about stretching, zooming, etc. as this will be an issue when receiving picture from an off air antenna on your house when a TV station is airing an older, non-wide screen format TV show or movie.

TV signals provided by Cable TV or Satellite provider must be HDTV type signals. If you have the standard TV service (non-HD) no picture sent by them will ever fill the screen. This is because Standard Definition TV (SDTV) is not capable of those types of signals. You will have to bump up your subscription to HDTV service to get full screen pictures.

I hope this helps!

Do all Blu-ray discs play with the black area at the top and bottom of the screen; like letterbox format? How can I expand the picture to full screen size on my LG 42LD450 tv? Maybe I'm just not...


They all play with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Sometimes they will be letterboxed and other times you will get a full screen with them. On your T.V. remote there should be a picture size button or format or a zoom button that should get you full screen.

I am having trouble getting the screen size back to full size. We used the zoom but that makes the picture to big. My TV is a Auria EQ5588


Hi, The " Size " of a flat panel tv ( when not in zoom mode ) is actually controlled by your programming, if using an hdmi cable from an Hd/Blu-ray player-then whatever format the disc was recorded in is what you'll see ( widescreen/letterbox ) black bars at top & bottom of scrteen ) or full screen. Local over the air digital H.D. brodcast's from networks varie from full screen to letterbox-satellite and cable that are standard definition will almost always letterbox a screen for you. Using T.V.s tuner may alleviate most of the issues. Good luck and I hope this helped. Prodzilla

Picture too big


It seems as if your tv is in "crop", "Zoom", or "full" mode. Select letterbox, normal, or full-screen mode. Look in the manual for exact instructions.
