    I have this exact TV and the screen is not only streched out, but it's even more streched out in the corners. The view is shaped like an hour glass. It looks like it needs an adjustment on the pincushion and the horizontal shrinked. I tried the service menu and it didn't successfully solve the problem. If I just go ahead and take it to a repair shop, what will they charge me to fix it most likely? Oh btw, before this problem with the screen streching out, I also came accross this one problem with the screen having a blank spot (black line) about two inches wide accross the bottom of the screen. The funny thing is, this problem gos away for awhile when I unplug it then plugged it back in.

Although I was able to get into the screen adjustment menu by following the below instructions, I ended up having to have the "pincushion module and 2HV diodes" replaced along with a repair to the deflection circuit.

If you choose to try to system settings, good luck, but make sure to write down your original value before changing any values and make sure that you do not change Parameter #42 (value has to be 247).

Instructions:

  1. TV turned on
  2. Press and hold the "menu" button at the TV
  3. Press and release the "power" button.
  4. Press and release the "vol up" button.
  5. Release the 'menu" button.
  6. The initial security parameter displayed will be 'zero' Change this to '76'.
  7. YOU ARE NOW IN ADJUSTMENT MODE
  8. Use the 'channel up or down' to select parameter 'p'.
  9. Write down the old value of the parameter before changing.
  10. Use the 'volume up of down' buttons to change the barameter value.
  11. When you have made all the adjustments turn the set off to exit.
Note: The Horizontal size it parameter 21 and the horizontal position is parameter 15.

RCA 20F514TD has lost horizontal hold. How can I adjust this? I have found no button or menu option discussed in the manual or by searching.


Horizontal rolling is the fault to your TV I assumes. It is a circuit fault. It can't be adjusted by customer controls. Contact any experienced service technician.

It has tripple vision and looks like a bow tie.


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.

  • good luck!

    Hi,
    You may try these steps. If you are facing a 90/180 degrees rotation issue with your displayed screen, this can be either due to a problem with your graphic card or a wrong manipulation of the hot keys of your keyboard. This problem can be easily fixed if you follow the steps below:
    Solution 1
    • Step 1: With the Desktop screen displayed in front of you, use your mouse left-click to access the Graphic Properties? option
    • Step 2: Select the Rotation Tab
    • Step 3: Uncheck the box labeled Enable Rotation?
    Solution 2
    • Step 1: With the Desktop screen displayed in front of you, use your mouses left-click to access the Properties? option
    • Step 2: Select the Parameters tab and click the “Advancedâ€? option
    • Step 3: From the displayed list, choose the name corresponding to your graphic card model
    • Step 4: Select the Rotateoption and change it to 0 degrees or to the “normalâ€? mode.
    Solution 3
    You can also make use of the hotkeys to change the rotation of your screen
    Press CTRL+ALT Gr+Up/Down/Left/Right arrows
    Solution 4
    If none of the above solutions has solved your problem, this might be due to a bad configuration of your graphic card. I will strongly suggest you to contact a computer technician to fix this issue.

    I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

    VCR stuck on menu screen


    Thank you. I did fix the problem. Reviewed the instruction manual for the Samsung VCR and removed the SAFE reading on the VCR by just holding down the TV-VCR button on the RCA universal remote for several seconds which then released the frozen menu screen. From there I was able to reprogram the TV using the instructions and codes for the RCA universal remote. I still have to reprogram the VCR.

    RCA HD52W59 Wavy lines


    Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

    Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

    Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

    This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

    Common Symptoms include....
    • Screen looks 3D
    • Colors don't line up
    • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
    • Screen is bowed or warped.
    • TV shuts off after powering on. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
    Here are some pics of convergence problems.

    69189a5.pngSOLUTION #1

    What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

    Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

    Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

    Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

    What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement coolant,step by step instructions, support, etc.

    ANy way you look at it you'll have to take it to the shop. A tech can use the secret service menu to adjust the vertical & horizontal size. Or you may have whopped up B+ issue, that could be hard to find so replacing the deflection board woul;d solve that, hope this helps.

    Letterboxing: The top and bottom of the screen are cut off I originally obtained this TV from my Bro who passed away from cancer at age 31 a few years ago & I was never able to find out what he did with the manual. However, I was able to find a manual online but after viewing it, I still wasn't able to find the info. that I am trying to obtain for the correct settings to get rid of these black margins at the top & bottom of the screen. I am trying to find out what video output format is supported by this TV model, as far as the resolution and output format, specifically for a Cisco or AKA Scientific Atlanta 500GB HD-DVR through Cox cable? My available settings with Cox cable & the DVR I have( Cisco or Scientific Atlanta 500GB model)are the following-Resolution:480i, with output format of either:Zoom 16:9 Pic or Letterbox 16:9 Resolution:480p standard, with output format of either:Zoom 16:9 Pic. or Letterbox 16:9 Resolution:480wide, with either output format of:Stretch 4:3 Pic, Preserve 4:3 Pic or Sidebar 4:3 Pic Resolution:720p wide, with output format of:Stretch 4:3 Pic, Preserve 4:3 Pic or Sidebar 4:3 Pic and finally, resolution:1080i wide with output format of:Stretch 4.3 Pic, Preserve 4:3 Pic or Sidebar 4:3 Pic? Everything worked fine with the screen size when I had a 160GB Motorola HD-DVR with Cox under the video output settings of:resolution:480i and video output of:Zoom 16:9 Pic until, I grew tired of constantly running out of space & had them switch me to a 500GB HD-DVR. They were supposed to install another Motorola HD-DVR but just with 500GB version but when the Cox maintenance employee showed up to swap them out and install the 500GD HD-DVR, he only had a Cisco/Scientific Atlanta 500GB available on his truck, which is I guess what they use for the Contour service but he attached a filter to the back of the coxial cable to make it a regular HD-DVR without Contour(even though they tried charging me extra for contour for 3 months before I finally got that straightened out since the maintenance workers & billing dept. are often not on the same page as I found out at Cox. I have tried calling Cox for support & they say that I need to find out & know my TV's video output settings. I explained to them that it worked perfectly fine just weeks ago with 480i resolution and output format of Zoom 16.9 Pic before they switched to the Cisco/Scientific Atlanta HD-DVR from the Motorola DVR and that I didn't have the manual and I stated why and they basically said, too bad, figure it out yourself. Can someone please help me out? I have the TV set up for the correct zip code, cable box-Yes, the cable box output channel-video 1/Aux (since that is what the TV manual I read online said to use if you are using the 3-color coded cables instead of the coxial cables to plug in from the TV to the HD-DVR) & I have the Cable box remote control code set to code 008 (Scientific Atlanta) that I verified to be correct by checking it through the TV's automated code search. The serial # for the TV is:C306B2084 and the Chassis # is:ATC113BB1 and its the 27" RCA Entertainment Series Guide Plus Gold Gemstar that is X-Box ready. Thanks so much, Todd

    tv screen is stretched too wide comin back from a week vacation, i turn on my rca f27650 to play xbox and i realize that my screen has been stretched out of proportion! i cannot see sides of the proper picture. i swith it to tv mode and the channels on the top left only show half of the first number! after trying to play around wit the menu settings to see if anything can be done to play wit the parameters! i went on my xbox 360 because i knew that there were settings in there to change screen fittings! what i found as a success (somewhat) was that when i changed the xbox screen format from normal to widescreen, the picture was formatted and actually fit the screen....kind off! the screen was no longer stretched and i was able to see the whole screen. even wit this somewhat succes, unfortunately the corners of the image were warped and appear compressed to fit format! i have tried troubleshooting from online but i have been most disappionted. ~ i have kept it unplug for hours / days to try a reset.fail ~ i have researched on how to acces the service menu for my model so i can adjust it but i seem to be finding only instructios for the generic rca service menu! the steps: hold menu, press release power, press release vol up, release menu i havent been able to get to the service menu at all! i thought that i might have already activated it but the screen jus didnt let me see it so i went and tried to acces this generic service menu on my other rca tv! it was a truflat rca model f20t10 ! similar guidpluss menus and all but i believe a bit newer! even on the rca f20t10 i was still unable to acces any service menus!...if you got any info on how i can fix an fit my screen please please let me know! thanks in advance
