Is it connected to a cable box? If so then there may be a setting on the cable box causing the gray bars. Check the cable box settings. If there is an option for what kind of TV it's connected to set it to 4:3 and NOT 16:9.
Not only do the S2s have a choice (in the menus) of Aspect Ratio settings, either 4:3 or 16:9, but in checking that to be sure I was remembering that correctly, I discovered that someone or something other than myself had my S2 DT set to 16:9
There has never been a working widescreen TV in this house, so no reason to set it to 16:9 ever, and when I went through all of the settings when I first got it I'd have been sure to have set it to 4:3, so how it got changed is a mystery.
