My LG TV does not remember its settings when they are changed.


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

How do I change to 4:3 aspect setting on sony kdl40ex500


If the WIDE button on the remote control isn't changing the aspect ratios here is what I can tell you:

Normal is not available when you are watching a 720p, 1080i or 1080p source.
If 4:3 Default is set to anything but Off, the Wide Mode setting changes only for the current channel. When you change channels (or inputs), Wide Mode is automatically replaced with the 4:3 Default setting for 4:3 sources. To retain the current Wide Mode setting as channels and inputs are changed, set 4:3 Default to Off.
4:3 Default is not available if Auto Wide is set to Off.

The owner's manual can be found here: https://docs.sony.com/release/KDL32FA600-EX301-EX400-EX401-EX500-EX501.pdf

If you still can't get the aspect ratio to properly work you may need to do a power reset or perform a factory reset: https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38403/c/65,66/p/61659,62766,63066/ Just make sure to note any special picture or sound settings you may have made.

My LG HD tv screen has a wide, gray band on either side of the picture


Try changing 'perspective' or screen ratio.
This may work, but could also stretch the picture too wide,
On my non-LG TV this is called 'aspect ratio' under the 'picture' menu.

I have a Dynex TV and Dish Network receiver. Last year the TV worked fine, I don't think I changed anything, but this year the top of the screen is cut off when I watch NFL games. The top of the score...


You will need to press the "Format" button on your DISH remote This button will have a * on it. By pressing this button repeatedly, you can change the format of the screen set it to normal. Next grab the factory remote for your TV and try the different formats most likely normal will work best on this setting as well.

Hi, I have an LG RZ-20A70 TV and when i watch TV or play xbox the side are cut off the screen. (think its the picture ratio) any idea how to change this? as i have tried everything!


yes it is a picture ratio issue .
You need to look for the main menu tv setup button, its green on my lg remote .
Once you select this you should have an option to change screen ratio to 16.2 or wide screen if your tv supports wide screen .
Look for a little tv icon on screen and select that ,this should get you to pic set .

LG 50" the pitcher is off the screen each side by


Ok, first make sure you or someone in family didn't hit the "HD Zoom" on your cable remote or whatever kind of remote you have. On ours - Cable- if you hit it once it is in "Normal" picture which on ours has black around edges on a non Hd channel. Then if you hit it again it Zooms once makes pix very large and if you hit button a third time brings it into a wide screen Zoom that fills the Tv screen. If we are viewing HD channels I put it on Normal which will fill the screen and give you the best HD pix. If we are viewing a NON HD channel, then normal will have black on sides, so I hit the Zoom a couple times to fill in the screen. My brother in law had this problem and couldn't figure out why his Sports channel Scores were always half cut off the screen! it was zoomed in too much for that channel. His sports channel was in HD so needed to be on normal instead of zoomed in.
if it is not the Cable remote then this is a second possible cause:

The other thing that happened to me was - we hardly ever use our original TV remote that came with the TV. but one day our picture looked weird and the cable remote didn't adjust it. One of us had hit the "P SIZE" button on the TV remote. this changes your pix from - 4:3 ratio to 16:9 ratio and vice versa. I put clicked that button and on the TV it shows whether it is at 4:3 or 16:9. For newer wide screen TVs you want that set at 16:9 ratio.

All cable company remotes probably are a bit different so check with your company ... to find out where the zoom control is on their remote.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

LG LST-5100P set top box does not display menu with an older ( 1998) tv set. Cant select aspect ratios . All I can do is change channels. Any ideas? Rod


Hi Rod,

Thanks for Using FixYa. If its a 4:3 normal TV or a wide 16:9 TV then you can view high definition picture by using the ARC button on your remote control to change the wide mode(Auto,Letter Box, Pan & Scan). Also check its free user manual for more information.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
