Auto Aspect Ratio is a feature of the set that takes the signal in and determines if the signal is being broadcasted in 4:3 or 16:9 screen size and adjusts it automatically, you can turn it off or on in the tv's menu and either pick 4:3 (bars on the left and right side) or 16:9 (fullscreen) for no matter what signal is being broadcast

Aspect ratio problem -- will not display 4:3


You should have an option in your menu for "ratio lock"... many older screens have a ratio lock setting that you can enable or disable. Hope that works!

How to adjust aspect ratio on sony kdl-v40xbr1


Hello
To take advantage of the wide mode feature on your TV, Set the DVD players' aspect ratio to 16:9. For details, refer the operating instructions supplied with your DVD player. Aspect ratio must be set with DVD player. Not with the TV. OK.

I cannot see the entire picture on my screen. The sides of the picture makes the show seem as though it goes off scrren. Is it my picture tube? If so, how much do they cost?


Is this with everything you view? Make sure you haven't changed the "aspect ratio". Look at the main menu for something like "format" or aspect ratio. Generally in an older TV like that one you should have an auto or native setting.

The aspect ratio of my TV is set to16:9, however on some channels, the picture is not full screen?


That is probably due to the transmission or aspect ratio of a dvd etc and perfectly normal but annoying!
Try setting your TV to automatic aspect ratio, if it has one.
Happy New Year.

Apart from Philips, what brand or brands of tv provide auto aspect ratio?


I think all good makes do, like Sony, Samsung, Sharp, JVC, B+O, Mitsibushi etc etc etc. Obviously the cheaper brands will not have so many features on them.

Signs that the bulb in a dlp is going out


A DLP Lamp will fail in two ways. 1.The glass tube housing the filament will shatter and the TV will not turn on. 2. The lamp has many hours of use on it and will gradually grow dimmer. At no time will the lamp cause any picture defect. Check your Cable or Sat box for the correct aspect ratio as well as the TV aspect ratio. Chances are the aspect ratio in either system is set incorrectly. If the gray borders are uniform then the aspect ratio is not set properly. If this occurs on certain channels but not others then the particular channel is broadcasting in the 4:3 aspect ratio and there is nothing wrong with your set.

Cannot change aspect ratio of picture when ratio button is pressed on remote. Batteries in remote are good. Everything else on remote works. Sony KP-57HW40


If you are connected to a HD cable or satellite box, the aspect ratio is set by that box. If it is set for 1080i 16:9 wide screen mode then your TV is locked at that ratio. This is good considering you have a Hi-Scan 1080i television in the Sony KP57HW40. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Picture is wider than the screean


There is a service menu that techs can use to adjust vertical and horizontal widths. If it is not an aspect ratio problem then it is likely that it needs to be adjusted.

Aspect Ratio or Input Issue


Not sure but you might be confusing your aspect selection on your DVR with aspect selections on the tv itself. Make sure you use your hitachi remote & check all available aspect ratios. Find one that suits u best

I cannot change aspect ratio


If you are trying to change the aspect ratio on the television make sure you are sending an HD signal Via Component cables. I am not aware of a way to get HD cable without a PC cable card or box, it could be that your television is not receiving the proper signal (analog, or composite) to switch the aspect ratio on your particular television.
