Notes on the Wide Screen Mode
To change from one Wide Screen Mode to another, use the
WIDE button on the remote control.
• The Wide Screen Mode function of this TV allows for various
display options: select the appropriate Wide Screen Mode for
the original aspect ratio of the picture you are watching.
• If you change the screen size using the Wide Screen Mode
feature with the TV installed in a public space for commercial
use or public purpose, it might be an infringement of
copyright.
• If you select “Wide Zoom” when watching the picture with
4:3 aspect ratio, part of the picture is distorted. You can watch
the picture with its original aspect ratio in “Normal” mode.
• The upper and lower parts of the picture may not appear in the
screen according to the size of the original picture. In this
case, adjust the picture position (see pages 58, 59).
Notes
• The 4:3 Default functions only when the TV receives 480i or
480p signals.
• If “4:3 Default” is set to anything but “Off,” the Wide Screen
Mode setting changes only for the current channel.
When you change channels (or inputs), the Wide Screen Mode
is automatically replaced with the 4:3 Default setting.
To retain the current Wide Screen Mode setting as channels
and inputs are changed, set “4:3 Default” to “Off.”
