    i have a WEGA 27FS12 that has been been displaying cable TV source in 16:9. this happens only when i turn the set on (the proportions revert back to 4:3 once i change the channel).

    i have never fiddled with the service menu for 16:9 changes

    so what could possibly be wrong with this set?

    advance thanks,

    jy

    John,

    This is what will happen if settings are saved in the service menu with the TV in 16:9 mode. I don't know how it got this way, but to correct the problem get into the service menu while displaying one of the Video inputs (it shouldn't matter which one) and re-save the settings while in 4:3 mode. Now when you turn the TV on it will come up 4:3 as the default and you will have to switch it to 16:9 manually. You will also note that the selection for 16:9 will be unavailable when watching cable (it is only available when viewing one of the four video inputs).

    Tony
