Recently my house got struck by lightening. It blew a few things out, one being the tv. It's a Sanyo Dp39842 42", green light comes on showing that its turned on and sound comes out but no picture.

You need to report to your homeowners insurance. It is normally about as cheap to buy TV nowadays as to repair. Especially one hit by lightning.

How do i change the aspect ratio on mysanyo dp52848 tv

You cannot change the aspect ratio. When a program is transmitted in 408i you will get a small picture in the center of the screen surrounded by black bars. This not the fault of the TV. You can try using the zoom feature, but the picture clarity will suffer.

I have a Sanyo DP42841 I cannot adjust the screen size. When I try to adjust with PIX SHAPE I can get the big screen 4 but all the others are a box with gray bars on both sides. Interestingly enough

Roger, you might try this.. on some TV's it works. while it is unplugged push the power button on the TV and hold it in for 30 seconds or more. sometimes this Resets the tv back to Default setting. Hope this helps besides even if it doesn't work you haven't hurt anything or lost anything..

Gray bars on side of picture

Yes. There are options. Strech, wide, full, zoom, and gray bar are common options. Some times when aa HD channel is not broadcasting in HD you will also get a narrow picture.
