How to Adjust the Aspect Ratio on a Polaroid Television

By Mandy Slake

Most widescreen television sets bury the aspect ratio adjustment inside a menu, but Polaroid television sets allow the user to change the aspect ratio with a single button press. Users can select between the standard 4:3 aspect ratio, widescreen, stretched images and a zoom mode that fills the screen at the expense of cutting off the image on the sides. Not all models offer every mode.

Step 1

Locate the "Zoom" or "Aspect" button on the remote.

Step 2

Press the button to cycle to the next aspect ratio. Press the button repeatedly to cycle through the available aspect ratios.

Step 3

Stop pressing the button when you get to the aspect ratio you want to use. The TV will remain on this setting until you change it.
