Tv seems to be in widescreen

The problem is the TV seems to be in widescreen, however the TV is a basic 4:3, with no 16:9 option anywhere in the menu. We just turned it on one day and all of a sudden most of the left and right was off the screen. here is a picture I drew to try to describe the situation. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v399/Bakudai/tv.gif This is a problem with the TV itself because the built in menu and numbers also go off the sides a bit.

We own a proton pltv-32c. the image coming in is larger than our screen (or the ratio is off). Basically the top and bottom of all images are being cut off (same for TV and video watching). What to do?

Check the FORMAT option in the OSD (on screen display) menu. It may need to change.
It's on page 15 of the User's Manual.

Format

Controls the picture format. The options are 4:3 and Full

(16:9-widescreen).

Or you could reset the tv by using the All Reset button on the menu.

All Reset

Resets all options to factory-default settings.
See page 23 of the User's Manual.

You can get a user manual from;

Picture seems to big for TV.cant read bottom words on screen and words are cut off on side also. Cant see scrores on any sports or read peoples names on bottom of the screen

Using the menu or settings button on your remote, access the TV's menu and find the area for picture settings and zoom. You're likely set to a zoom mode, so cycle through the options until you find the zoom setting that sizes to your TV best. (On most widescreens, the best picture is often on the setting 'panarama.'

Picture too big so faces long and narrow, how must i zoom out to make pic smaller

If the image is tall and thin, then you've likely got your TV set to widescreen mode when it's not a widescreen TV. In your TV's menu, there should be an option to change between widescreen and normal, or one called "Aspect Ratio" and it'll give options like 16:9 and 4:3, change that to 4:3 if that's the option it gives you.

I have a Pioneer DV-525 DVD player, and recently upgraded from a 4:3 TV to a widescreen TV. However, under the Setup menu, it won't let me change the setting to 16:9. The options are grayed out, and I...

The DVD movie has to be a "widescreen" version...

Check the cover of your DVD movies ... there may be one or more widescreen DVD's in your collection...

That should work.

What widescreen TV did you get? Brand / model.
If it is Samsung ... on the remote, press the "p.size" button (and wait) ... continue pressing and waiting after each press to see if the Samsung will adjust ... You may get a distorted pic ... like very short and very wide people.

What TV Brand / model??

Philips 42PF7320A cropping issue

Pete,

When using a hd connection on a philips tv and (I am assuming this is the case) the tv disables the format features on the tv and only lets you select widescreen and automatic, if you are using hd adjust the picture size from the cable/satellite box, look for it in the box's menu system or on the remote, it is usually labeled, aspect ratio, zoom, format or something to that nature, hope I helped you

Sky not working properly on my samsung lcd tv

This is likely to be caused by the changing of the screen mode between ads and or programs, by your TV.

If so, changing the Sky output to 16:9 will fix it.

Press [Services]

Select option 4 - System Setup

Select option 1 - Picture Settings

Change "Location 1" TV setting to 16:9 (This will make the Sky box handle any changes and give you a permanent widescreen output to your TV. This is the recommended setting for widescreen TVs, but sadly, few Sky installers bother to do it.

You can also change "Location 2" if you have a second widescreen TV connected in another room.

Whilst in this menu change the Video Output to RGB from PAL (If not set already) RGB gives a much more stable picture (particularly on the menu system)

Go to Save new settings and press [Select]

Exit the menu system, and you problem should be solved.
