Why won't my flat screen let me change the aspect ratio?

    I've got the 42" LCD Magnavox flat screen and can't figure out how to change the screen size. The "Picture Format" offers:

    Automatic
    Zoom
    4:3
    Movie expand
    16:3 subtitle
    Wide Screen

    Only Automatic and Wide Screen work, the rest of the picture format options aren't available.

    :wtf:

    How do I fix this? I can't see the score of the basketball game because it's cut off :hsd:

    Is it running of a cable or sat box. If it is then try the picture format settings on the box. Most of the time they will work better than the tv's.

    If it's plugged straight to the wall then I don't know what to tell you.

    :dunno:
