Overscanned in the top of the screen,is the symptom defected capacitor in the vertical section. Filter capacitor 100uf or microfarad or it is better you replaced all capacitor there and reworks or resolder all solder joint there in vertical section.So it will works better again..

Repaired the convergence and now the image quality is good but the TV seems to be over projecting the screen. The top, bottom and sides of the image are cut off slightly. is there a way to adjust?


Hey! its me again. I think what your experiencing is called overscan. This website might help but if not just google how to fix overscan on a projection tv.

Top ~1¼" of the picture being overscanned into top ~½"


a missing power supply voltage, defective vertical output IC, or a component associated with it is likely bad. A bad connection or blown fusable resistor may be the cause of a missing power supply voltage

How do I enter the service menu on an Emerson EWF2004 CRT Television? (Pictures of the OVERSCAN ISSUE will be provided if needed.)


Older sets had vertical and horizontal size controls. If you have the horizontal size control, turning it counterclockwise will reduce the size of the picture horizontally and reduce the overscan.

Screen zoomed in zoom out


Go to Display settings and make sure Auto Detect is off.
Then if it's off or after reset go to HDTV settings and select 1920x1080, if there is no picture wait till it comes back and select 1360x768. Just keep going down till you find one that works.
It's a bit of a bummer some TV's out there have no option to disable the overscan. Also a bigger shame that a lot of TV's are sold as 1080p yet only have a 1366x768 native resolution.
However this solution should fix overscan issues if it can't be done through the TV.

AOC monitor 2436vh does not fill the screen using the HDMI connector. There is a 1 inch black border around the window. Controls to stretch the display are locked out (not accessible) when using that...


The "Best Solution" fixes a problem that is unrelated to the original poster. anononline19's solution is to fix the entire OSD being locked (displays OSD Locked when the menu button is pressed).

Original poster's problem can be fixed by changing your graphics card's "overscan" settings.

Overscan on nVidia cards is currently not supported.

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen


Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

Top of picture cut off


Sounds like a problem on the deflection/power board....You can try replacing the vertical I/C and caps.......Or go for a new board.
