Question about Sony Televison & Video

5 Answers

I have a Sony kdl-46s2000 tv. Whenever I press on the wide button, under "mode" on the remote, all I ever get is the message "feature not available for current signal". Currently the picture is too wide for the screen. Everytime a message comes on that's on the right or left side of the TV, it's cuttoff. The TV's connected to a satellite dish and I've tried setting it up in different configurations, but nothing works. I'm at a total loss and would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

    I tried that and it didn't work. I still can't change the picture size to fit the monitor.

  • cheflarry Aug 23, 2008

    So what are my options?

Try an analog antenna first if you have one to identify if its the dish or the tv. Using different cables going to dish can also be done.

Try to play a DVD or a CD just to check if the display will be better , because if the display ok when playing a DVD or CD the prpblem here can be the signal from your Dish..

Hope that helps........

    If you have a option to reset the settings of your Tv try that one and that should bring your television back to its deafult settings..

I think this has to do with the satellite dish not liking the encryption thing going on with the sony tv. The dish probably don't understand it fully and therefore you have intermittant problems. ....

How to turn off demo mode on Sony kdl-40ex523


Make sure the TV is set for home mode. Information for doing this is included on page 11 of the owner's manual. Click here to view or download the owner's manual for the TV. ON the remote control press the up arrow and hold it in. Press the power button on the TV itself twice. Hopefully this will correct the problem.

Sony bravia picture to large for screen


Sir press the screen mode button in your remote below input select button, press the screen mode button repeatedly to select smart, 4:3, wide, zoom, or 14:9.
  • Smart- Display conventional 4:3 broadcast with an imitation wide screen effect. The 4:3 picture is stretched to fill the screen.
  • 4:3- Display conventional 4:3 broadcast non-wide screen TV in the correct proportions.
  • Wide- Display wide screen 16:9 broadcast in the correct proportions.
  • Zoom- Display cinemascopic letter box format broadcasts in the correct proportions.
  • 14:9- Display 14:9 broadcasts in the correct proportions. As a result, black border areas are visible on the screen.

I have a 52 inch SONY Bravia that has been stuck in zoom mode since last night. iI am unable to see the writing and/or tops of heads on top of screen. any help available?


Press the "WIDE" button on the TV remote a few times to change the TV wide mode settings until you get it to "FULL". If that does not fix it, look on your Cable box remote for an "Aspect" or "Format" button and press it a few times. I hope this helps.

Image does not position well


Your Sony TV remote has a "WIDE" button. Press this a few times in a row some that you understand it's operation. Then pick a mode (I would recommend "FULL") that fits your needs. I hope this helps.

Wide screen mode won't go back to "normal".


Was exactly what you said. The cable box settings were in wide mode. Couldn't figure it out at all. Funny thing was too.. on my cable box remote, the button under the #9 button is the # button.. it doesn't say zoom at all.. but it totally controls the zoom.

So thanks for that.. AND thanks for saying "under the #9 on the cable remote" instead of just saying .. the zoom button.

Thanks again!!!

The vertical screen cannot be adjusted. Watching football games the score cannot be seen at the top of the screen. changing vertical center and vertical size has no effect


You question shows its Sony KDL-46S2000 lcd tv so adjust screen format like zoom etc to adjust picture size best fits in screen.
Screen format option is available in Menu.
