I was unable to find any direct information on a Model 2010 Infant Monitor. The picture shown by Fixya is of an LCD handheld monitor.
If I understand the problem correctly, you are seeing a picture that is only 1/2" wide in the center of a 4" or 5" CRT (similar to one of the three CRT models presently shown on the Summer Infant site. You did not state whether it is full height, or if it is a complete picture rather than simply truncated at the sides.
If it is a complete full-height picture, but squashed into a 1/2" vertical stripe, the vertical deflection is OK but you have a problem with the horizontal deflection. Since you have more or less full brightness (you did not mention any problems with that), the horizontal oscillator is working and producing the proper 2nd anode voltage through the flyback transformer. In many small black and white CRT monitors the horizontal deflection current is coupled through a non-polarized electrolytic capacitor. If this is going bad, it will produce this symptom.
If the entire picture is undersized and dim, you may have a power supply problem - if it is also erratic and you hear snapping sounds, it's could be the flyback transformer. If the picture goes edge-to-edge horizontally, but is squashed into a 1/2" high strip, you have a coupling problem in the vertical deflection circuit. A non-functional vertical oscillator will give you a single line across the center. A malfunctioning vertical oscillator will give you a rolling image.
Have you checked the safety recall information on these infant monitors? The two primary issues are keeping the cables away from the baby, and battery rupture problems on certain models.

Keeping the LED monitor portion on the entire time sucks the battery pretty quickly on mine. It has an automatic shut off button but if you're like me, you probably check it constantly. I found that when I'm not turning on the LED portion and also turning it off when he's awake and with me, it keeps the charge MUCH better.

Have you tried pressing the pairing button at the back of the camera unit and press the scroll button at the center of the receiveing monitor at the same time as suggested by the manual? I had the same problem, followed the manual instructions and solved it. (Greetings from Mexicali, M
