Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Hello, so, this is the situation: I have lost my TV manual and I want to set the TV picture format to 16:9 for permanent, or even better, set it to "automatic". I have the Sony RM-833 remote control for the Sony KV-X2101D Trinitron television. So far, I have managed to change the picture format to 16:9, but it changes back to "Normal" (4:3 format I suppose) every time I switch channel. So, how can I memorize this16:9 format as permanent? Or even make the picture format change automaticall



Answers :

Your TV's native format is 4:3 so to prevent burn in effect the TV will go back to 4:3 every time you turn it off or change channels.

My Sony KDL-40XBR7 has developed two problems. 1) Sometimes when changing channels the screen turns green. I can solve this by turning off the set then back on, but what's causing the problem? 2) In the past few days whenever I turn the TV on there are horizontal bands from top to bottom. They are faint and the picture can still be seen. Additionally the picture is ghosted; a second ghost image appears larger and below the original. This lasts for a few minutes then goes away. Of course, the TV

I have purchased an HX46800 after using an XBR40 full HD for 3 years. The picture on the new set doesn't seem as sharp as the older LCD set except when the source is 1080. It is very unforgiving for even 576 picture source and the picture becomes less than sharp, especailly on long shots - sometimes looking almost blurry. The older set seemed to accomodate most HD sources with a sharper picture. Is this common or do I have a dud? tks Mike Goss
