Slim - This aspect mode shrinks the screen of a 16:9 broadcast to 4:3. There are some programming that is already stretched by mistake at broadcasting companies, so this mode corrects it. Black side bars will appear.
•Depending on the signal format, some aspect modes are unavailable.
•Slim can only be displayed when the signal is ATSC (480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i) or HD (720p, 1080i).
•If the television receives a 16:9 signal from your HDMI device, the aspect mode will turn to Full automatically. If the television receives a 4:3 signal from your HDMI device when you are in Full aspect mode, it will return to Regular aspect mode. If you change the aspect mode after the television changed it to Full automatically, the television will change to the aspect mode you choose. It also turns to Full automatically when the TV receives an HD (1080i or 720p) signal.
•You can access the aspect modes using the buttons on the side of the TV, by using the MENU button, then – CH + button.
