My Sony KDL-46XBR2 is almost 3 years old now and this problem started about a couple months ago.

The problem is the picture (whether on HD or SD channel) would suddenly be scaled down horizontally to 4:3. The first few times it happened while I was switching back to the DVR from my PS3 or XBOX 360. but this last time it happened in the middle of watching the DVR. I had been able to "fix" it in the past by unplugging the power cord for 15-30 minutes and it would run fine until the next time it happened. But this time, it's stuck. See image below.

What's worse is that the remote only controls on/off and volume, the on-screen menu doesn't work, and the TV is stuck on Video Input 5 (the DVR input which is component). I've tried resetting the TV to factory settings with no results. I've tried running the XBOX 360 into Input 5 and the image is scaled the same.

Has anyone seen this before? Is there anything I can do before the repair guy gets here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
