Question about Insignia 50 in. Flat-Panel Plasma HDTV

Insignia flat panel tv

I have a 50 inch Insignia plasma tv. I want to select the aspect ratio labeled "horizon". (Pushes out the sides to fill the screen) This option is grayed out on my tv. Is there a setting I can change to allow this?

Thanks!

I don't exactly know your model. I can give you a generic type answer.

I can tell you that when you select to have the full screen, it may not work in the mode for the tuner. The reason is that the programs coming in from your tuner are actualy 4:3. When asking for a full screen you are asking for a 16:9 type format. This would stretch a 4:3 picture.

Have you tried contacting the manufacture, or if you know their local factory support place for your area?

Change screen from wide to regular our cable guy put it on wide my control will no longer change it


Vizio has a set of buttons on the left side where you can access your settings and change the aspect ratio of your TV. Though why you want it changed is beyond me. Wide screen is for 16:9 aspect ratios. At 4:3 (Standard) you won't be using your full TV picture.

I have a 50" Plasma


Hi, the aspect ratio is set incorrectly for the source material or the screen is simply set to 4:3 aspect (old TV size) manually. There will be a menu function or an aspect button on the remote for doing this. Set it to auto which is usually good enough for most viewing though the ratio may change during adverts and back again for the film on tv watching. This can be annoying so when on tv mode observe the ratio set when the film is on and manually set this ratio, usually 16:9. The display will normally tell you the ratio setting at the point of change so you can do this. I hope this helps.

Hello; All HDTV's have some kind of menu item only on the original remote control, which could be labeled as aspect ratio or screen size ETC. Read your owner's manual or download one if needed. John

Just purchased a 32 inch insignia flat screen model # NS-32L430A11, How do I make the picture the full 32 inc instead of the small screen in a box?


Look for 'ASPECT', 'MODE', 'VIDEO', or 'DISPLAY' on the remote button to change the aspect ratio.
One thing to remember is that if the video was made for 4:3 old TV format, when you expand it to fill 16:9 screen, people will loof short and fat.

On my Insignia LCDTV26 I have almost 3" of black screen on the right and left side of the picture.


This is normal if you're watching a 4:3 (full screen) broadcast or movie on your widescreen (16:9) TV. You can adjust the screen aspect by going into the Settings Main Menu and selecting System, then Aspect Ratio. I hope this helps!

50 inch plasma ge tv. picture is to big


You will have to go to the setup on the LG50P.... and get to the picture resolution, For example your monitor settings should have the ablitiy to set up the 4:1 or 16:9 aspect ratio. The best is to set this at automatic ... usually the case on a 1080i or 1080p

How do I adjust the picture to fill the screen


i was having problems in the tv menu getting full screen. no matter what i did there was two black bars on each side of the screen. i have att u verse so i went into the cable menu to options. In the options tab i went down to system options then to aspect ratio. in this screen you get a few options like 4:3 standard definition and 1080i on high def screen. I chose 1080i high def and then played with the zoom function on my remote and the problem was solved. hope this helps

Panasonic TV 50 inch plasma


Dear RyanVa21;
Try changing the picture size with your set's remote, press the aspect ratio button. The remote must be the original Panasonic remote.
Please let me know if that did it.

Thanks!
