Normal picture mode make the sharper picture quality but smaller screen apparance
My Sony Tv KDL 40V2500
when I try and watch in Normal picture mode then it generates sharper picture quality but same time smaller screen appears (square screen) only wide mode give me full 40 inch appearance and I loose the resolution very much and picture looks larger then usual
Please guide me is it defect, is this need reprograming, or all the KDL 40V2500 has similar problems
Re: Normal picture mode make the sharper picture quality...
If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.

I would Google the model number carefully for "problems" "no sound" and usually this set will display some kind of error code===it may even have a hard reset to try===service manuals are available on the net/web to allow you to see how the sound circuit is set up etc.
4 blinks indicated of backlight malfunction. The unit shutsdown to avoid overload to the inverter board.
Check the backlights, busted backlight has a physical indication of fault like blackened end, crack end. You must replaced the busted one and your unit will back to normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

That sounds very normal to me. When your watching a HD channel, and a commercial comes on and the screen gets smaller with as you say the black bars, just means that the commercial is not broadcasting in HD. You can change it by pushing the button on your TV remote that says picture, but you are streaching the screen and are going to loose the quality of the picture. You may also want to spend a few hours, going into you TV settings and just start playing with the settings. Just remember where they were before you change something. You can also purchase a guide to LCD settings to point you in the right direction. If you have your TV set to vivid or one of the preset picure modes, it is costing you more power and you are not getting the best picture that the TV can produce. Play around with the custom setting or buy one of those calibration CD's off the internet.
These tv's receive digital on the atsc 8vsb. Do you know what there broadcasting in New Zealand ? It could be that a Sony tech there can fix your problem. The TV can be set-up for a different digital broadcast and Sony is all over the world even in New Zealand .
You'll get this abnormality some times due to the signal if you're watching regular analog picture and you have your TV set on full screen, the TV will stretch the picture and you will see more defects than if you're watching it on normal picture. But if you are seeing the same problem when watching HD picture it needs to be serviced try this link I found: http://www.moniserv.com/doc/lcdtv.html
