Question about Samsung BD-P1400 Blu-Ray Player
I have a samsung widescreen TV and the samsung BD-P1400 blu ray player. Why do blu ray movies continue to have the black bars on the top and bottom of the picture. I have tried everything to make the picture fit the screen (changing the settings on the TV and the blu ray player) but nothing works. Any help?
Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.
You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.
Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.
Hope this helps,

As fellow agent above said you also need to update the 1400 series Firmware as well if you are using HDMI and select proper aspect ratio as well
