Re: picture problem

Sounds like you are in the begining stages of vertical foldover. This is a problem where the vertical driver waveform is distorted due to a component failure causing the beam to not be driven all the way to the top of the screen. Usually there is enough overscan that you would not necessarily notice the picture being smaller than the crt. When this happens the horizontal scan lines, which have not decreased, are all displayed on top each other or as the condition worsens they invert. This causes the symptoms that you described. The solution I use is to replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the vertical drive circuit. There may only be one bad one but finding it will drive you nuts. They only cost dimes so we're not talking much money. Without a schematic you can usually be successful if you replace all the electrolytic caps around the vertical IC. If you are going to tackle this be careful. TVs are dangerous. Remember to unplug the set and discharge the crt High Voltage anode. Good luck.

You have a swollen capacitors in the vertical section try to replace all the leaky capacitors, you will notice that there is a liquid leaking out in the buttom of the capacitor.It is like an oil spill.

Folddover at top of picture about an inch from top

Replace cap. 2465 and cap. 2561. That should take care of it unless the vertical transistors are bad or there are other bad caps.

32Inch Flat Screen SDTV - with picture distortion

If you have a TV shop at all any more in your area, any tech working on them will know where to look. This is a pretty common problem although you are getting it too early.
Since it will require a certain type of instrument (capacitance meter) to verify the problem part, I don't want to go into detail concerning a 'do-it-yourself' repair since it may be a little difficult to order these in single quantities and a decent shop should have the right value on hand.

It shouldn't cost too much.

Picture beginning to fail

There are some components it the vertical deflection amplifier area that are becoming thermo sensitive with age. It is also possible that there will be parts going off value in the power supply and other areas.

These problems are typical in these sets when they are aged. The cost of the repair may not be worth the investment.

You should take the set in to a service center for an estimate.
