Customer Question
I have a KDLW700b...

I have a KDLW700b. Direct antenna input. It is stuck on a 4:3 ratio. When I press the aspect ratio button it says "Feature not available with current signal".

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

KDLW700b

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Under screen settings the only option is Full. All other options are greyed out.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your? What happened right before this?

About an hour.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

I was watching something on the inbuilt Youtube app.

What all inputs are connected to the TV, apart from antenna?

e.g. do you have a DVD player or any other devices connected?

If so, are they also affected by the 4:3 ratio problem?

What is the model number of the remote control that you are using?
