1 Answer

My KDL-V40XBR1 picture size jumps from full to zoom and will not stop - have tried resetting to factory default, using Wega gate to set picture size to normal etc,

Picture jumps from full to zoom, have reset to factory defaults, used WEGA gate to readjust picture size to 4:3 normal, setting for normal to zoom will not stay on normal. Using same satellite receiver for three years, ???? Suggestions to get picture size to stop jumping?

You either have failed 24vdc power supply section or failed backlight inverter board, check for 24vdc first, look for caps with leaking/bulging top.

assuming you all have comcast and using an hdmi cable
first access menu (hit it twice) and go to set picture format, choose passthrough....or in your case auto hdmi

then turn box off, press guide and info on the front of the box, proceed through the setup, advanced is more in depth..lol...

select 1080, 720, and then either the standard or widescreen 480s to your liking.....

voila....

now check your tv settings to accommodate

Yes, it's required to get the TV serviced as the issue is related to internal hardware malfunctioning.

Why are you using 4:3 letterbox? It might be the default aspect ratio but widescreen tvs should be set to 16:9 aspect ratio.

Please note that all HDTV channels project wide screen pictures. You can still go to settings and then picture mode and change the format to 4:3/full mode.

If you are connected to a cable box or satellite receiver and it is high definition (hdmi or component cables) you would manipulate the screen size with the hd zoom, aspect, or format button on the cable or satellite company's remote.

If the television remote control also has it you would further adjust the screen size with a view mode, aspect, or format button

yOU SHOULD HAVE 2 MORE SETTINGS ZOOM AND EXTENDED ZOOM THIS SHOULD FILL OUT YOUR SCREEN, THE REASON FOR THE SMALLER PICTURE WHEN IN REGULAR CABLE IS BECAUSE IT IS SENT IN 4X3 FORMAT INSTEAD OF 16X9.

NORMAL OPTION GONE


the cable remote has a zoom feature in the settings. the zoom setting got turned on somehow. This feature overrides the picture size settings on the tv.
so, not a tv problem at all, but easily missed.

Size of the picture decreased


If this only happens with your cable or satellite box this may be an adjustment in your box. So you may need to contact them and find out how to adjust the picture size. This tv may have a wide mode setting on the tv remote. Pushing this button may select full,wide,wide zoom or normal size. On many occasions the tv stations control the picture size. Good Luck
