The aspect ratio on a television set controls the shape of the picture on the screen. Select the incorrect aspect ratio and the TV display will look either stretched or squeezed. If the screen display on your Panasonic Viera television set looks wrong, change the aspect ratio with the TV remote control handset to correct the problem.
