Hi, I have a 2006 sony bravia with Sky. My tv is stuck in wide screen mode and I cannot change it? Any ideas please?
Model KDL 32V2000
Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!
Do you have the remote for your Sony TV?
If so, do you see a button labeled "Format" or "Ratio" or "aspect"?
I do not see any of those buttons, although, some have a small diagram above the button - which I cannot recreate as they are sony specific. I do not see any ratio, format or aspect 'areas' inside the menu settings either.
typically it is a button on the remote
You have the original sony remote that came with the TV correct?
Can you give me the specific model number to the TV
I think what is needed is an image of the remote?
Yeah, that would be great.
If you can send me that it would be perfect.
Oh no! I was hoping you could do that........ I used to have a pdf manual on my desktop but that has disappeared
Could you possibly take a photo of the remote
and send it to me?
All I have is the remote in my hand
OK let me locate the manual
If you want to download a copy for yourself
I will look through it now and find the solution for the wide screen though.
If you will open the PDF
And go to page 14
You will see the insturctions for "screen mode"
The button is the second from the top of the remote
Its a square button under a round button
Will allow you to adjust from wide screen to 4:3 etc.
any luck with that
Is there a button you can describe for me please?
It's the square button
Underneath the very top left button
It looks like 4 arrows on it
.It is #19 button on the layout of the remote
Yes, have located the button.
"Feature not available for current signal"
Ok so were you able to change the wide screen then?
It's possible that the source will not allow it
Are you on the Sky box?
No, please see above later comment
Is the video from the Sky box?
Yes Sky HD box
With some broadcast signal
You cannot adjust the ratio
Try another channel
And see if it works
It's not a limitation of the TV but rather the sky box itself
It's the same on all Sky channels
Do you have another video source
Like a DVD plaer
Try playing video from that source
to see if you can change the aspect
that way you can confirm it's not the TV
Understood. I will try that
Great, let me know what results
Yeah, that works Steve
Right, I have worked out (with your help) that I cannot change the settings on my main Sky set-up. I can change it on my secondary Sky channel but the reception is not HD. I can change it on my DVD player. I am trying to change it when required and it's not going to happen. Maybe a new Sony TV?
Yeah, a new Tv might be the option.
Technology has changed quite a bit since 2006.
That;s for sure! Anyhoo, thanks for all your input Steve, much appreciated
