    Why is my Philips TV constantly switching the picture format when I watch TV in [Auto fill] format?

    Published on 2016-12-29

    When the TV picture format is set to [Auto fill], the TV will automatically adjust the picture to fill the screen when black bars or subtitles are detected. In this option, you may experience a constantly changing picture format when the TV performs the automatic picture format conversion.

    If you wish to set a specific format, proceed as follows:

    1. Press the [Adjust] button on the remote control to access the Adjust menu.
    2. Select [Picture Format] and press the [OK] button to display the list of available picture formats.
    3. Press the cursor [Up] or [Down] to select [Widescreen] option or any other format that you feel comfortable with and press the [OK] button.
    4. Press the [Back] button to exit the menu.
