How to select a 4:3 picture format in my Philips TV?

The 4:3 option only appears in the list of available picture formats if you connect a computer by VGA or HDMI.

If you want to view TV channels or material from other Sources in the 4:3 format, you need to set the picture format to [Auto Format] and select [Auto Zoom] in the [Auto Format Mode] Menu.

Follow these steps to set the [Auto Format Mode]:

  1. Press the [Home] button on the remote control to access the [Home] menu

  2. Use the cursor button to select [Setup] and press the cursor [OK] button to confirm

  3. Press the cursor [Down] to select [Picture] and press the cursor [Right]

  4. Press the cursor [Down] to select [Picture Format] and press the cursor [Right]

  5. Select [Auto Format] and press the [OK] button to confirm

  6. Press the cursor [Down] to select [Auto Format Mode] and press the cursor [Right]

  7. Select the option according to your preference and press the [OK] button to confirm

  8. When AUTO FILL is selected, the picture will expand to fill the screen regardless of the broadcast format, e.g. 4:3 or 14:9

  9. When AUTO ZOOM is selected, the picture will be displayed according to the broadcast format, i.e. TV will display 4:3 broadcast in 4:3 format; 14:9 broadcast in 14:9 format

  10. Press the [Back] button to exit the menu
