If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500 audio not working


I would Google the model number carefully for "problems" "no sound" and usually this set will display some kind of error code===it may even have a hard reset to try===service manuals are available on the net/web to allow you to see how the sound circuit is set up etc.

Hi,
4 blinks indicated of backlight malfunction. The unit shutsdown to avoid overload to the inverter board.
Check the backlights, busted backlight has a physical indication of fault like blackened end, crack end. You must replaced the busted one and your unit will back to normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR6 screen adjustment


That sounds very normal to me. When your watching a HD channel, and a commercial comes on and the screen gets smaller with as you say the black bars, just means that the commercial is not broadcasting in HD. You can change it by pushing the button on your TV remote that says picture, but you are streaching the screen and are going to loose the quality of the picture. You may also want to spend a few hours, going into you TV settings and just start playing with the settings. Just remember where they were before you change something. You can also purchase a guide to LCD settings to point you in the right direction. If you have your TV set to vivid or one of the preset picure modes, it is costing you more power and you are not getting the best picture that the TV can produce. Play around with the custom setting or buy one of those calibration CD's off the internet.

Image on 'normal' setting isn't using full height of tv screen.


What you will need to do is grab your remote that came with the tv - click "Menu">select "Settings">go down to "Screen" and make sure that:

1. Wide Mode reads "Full"
2. Auto Wide reads "On"
3. Display Area reads "Full Pixel"

Hope that helps.

Vertical line on KDL-32s20l1


You'll get this abnormality some times due to the signal if you're watching regular analog picture and you have your TV set on full screen, the TV will stretch the picture and you will see more defects than if you're watching it on normal picture. But if you are seeing the same problem when watching HD picture it needs to be serviced try this link I found: http://www.moniserv.com/doc/lcdtv.html
