DVD play back picture too small......

  Carafaraday 15:03 11 May 2008

I have a Panasonic DMR-EX75EB and a Toshiba wide screen tv. Have been watching DVDs without problem until last night. The DVD (Westwing series 3) starts playing back widescreen, then changes after the credits and plays with dark strips top and bottom, left and right - making the visible picture very small. Previous DVDs in the series played back non widescreen but with no dark strip top and bottom (just at sides). Have looked at 'aspect ratio' which was set to 16.9, changed it to 4.3 with no improvement so have gone gack to 16.9. Haven't changed anything about either the tv or the dvd player recently(at least I don't think so).

I am sure that there is some easy fix for this and would be very grateful for any suggestions.

I seem to have been able to sort this by playing with the tv settings rather than try and change anything on the dvd player although still don't know why it suddenly changed.
