NORMAL will display a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3
ZOOM mode magnifies the central section of the picture.
FULL will display the picture at its maximum size but
with sight elongation.
JUST mode will display a 4:3 picture at its maximum
size but with aspect correction applied to the center of
the screen so that elongation is only apparent at the
left and right edges of the screen. The size of the picture
will depend on the original signal.
(1) Do not allow the picture to be displayed in 4:3 mode for an extended period, as this can cause a parmanent after-image
to remain on the plasma display panel.
(2) The S VIDEO terminal on this set can detect specially encoded signals that are compatible with a wide screen monitor.
When a full image from the S VIDEO terminal of specially encoded video is detected by the set, the screen size is
automatically set to FULL mode.
The display will automatically become enlarged
(depending on the picture source), allowing you to view
the picture at its maximum size.
AUTO mode is designed to automatically adjust the
aspect ratio to handle a mix of 16:9 and 4:3 program

market data screens, may occasionally cause the image
size to change unexpectedly. When viewing such
programs, it is recommended that the ASPECT be set
