Re: samsung

By bottom up do you mean that if you flipped the monitor upside down the picture would be right side up but backwards? If so then the horizontal is o.k. since you are reversing it when you flip it. It sounds like it is just your vertical windings of the yoke have had their relative polarity reversed. Could be major or it also could be as simple as some one has put the connector on backwards. Consult your local lab, at the end you're also dependant on their repair estimate. Good luck

Watching espn hd, the picture cuts off on one side. How do I adjust this? The ESPN bug is well within the border in the right hand lower corner, but a chart that comes on perodically during play...

There's a resolution/aspect ratio you can adjust in the picture menu, or straight from the remote. Choose the size you want on ESPN that best fits the picture while watching it.

The picture on your TV is created by an electron gun firing at the phosphor coating on the screen. The position of the guns beam is controlled by magnetic coils, which are driven by scan circuitry.

Normally, the gun scans left to right, top to bottom to create each single frame of the moving image.

From what you are saying, it sounds like there is a fault in the vertical control system somewhere - basically the gun is going left to right but not up and down, resulting in your picture being squashing down to one row high!

It is unlikely to be a fault with the magnetic coils. My guess would be a faulty resistor that is breaking down (and changing its value) as it gets hot.

It should be a relatively easy to fix, but given the age/value of the TV it might be worth considering a replacement.

The TV is only showing half of the picture

Hi Bigtate,

There is not much for me to go on with your description but here goes,

I suppose you have a convential TV set with a glass picture tube and not one of the new types with the large screen slim style displays!!!

If it a glass type picture tube then the following assumptions are made.

I hope yopu have not shifted house recently and moved the TV around???
If you have its possible the Yoke (its a device on the neck of the Picture tube that controls magnetically the scanning dot) may have moved and only is letting you see half a picture...
This is a long shot but it could be the cause..

Now the picture is supplied to you by a fast moving dot of light (Black & White set) that scans from the top of the picture and moves very fast down to the bottom of the screen, then flys back to the top of the screen and starts all over again during this process the dot lights up the picture tube to provide you with
the picture you see... (On a colour set there are three dots)

Its quite a complex process and its all controlled by electronics inside the TV receiver.

If you are getting only half a picture then something is causing the dot to only turn on for the lower half of the picture during its write time to the glass screen,

You dont say if the half thats off is white or black, so there are many things that the service technician needs to know before even starting to look for this fault. During the dot doing its write cycle down the sceen, when it reachs the bottom and flys back to the top of the screen it receives a synchronous pulse from the TV station, and this TV signal is critical in making sure you see the same picture as is being sent from the TV station.
Sometimes this sync pulse from the TV station is very weak and so your picture may float up and down the screen trying to lock to the incoming signal.. this just may be your fault.. but you dont say if the half of the picture that you see is floating or not..
Your situation may be that your TV has partially locked to the station signal and your aerial may be problematic,
but then you dont say if its on just the one channel or all of your station channels. So there needs to be more analysis of your situation prior to a positive answer being provided....

Sorry I can be of more help...

From YUBEUT...
