After several months of sitting, I recently relocated this tv (no drops) to another location, but now have only the bottom 2/3 of the picture on the top 1/2 of the screen.There also seems to be a bit of a squeeze of the picture towards the center of the tube. I tried several different inputs i.e. DVD via s-video and off air tv through the coax input.The color and display seem to be okay, just shifted. There doesn't seen to be a knob for the horizontal hold. Suggestions?

When tv it does have a full picture,the tv it work ok?Yes,tv it is repairable.This tv problems are only have two possible electronic boards causes.1 the tv board that call the T-CON decoders board it is dying,this board sit in the middle of the bottom of the LCD screen panel,it control and decoding all the picture dots pixels before it gose into the LCD screen panel.2 worst cases the main board the tv Tuner signal board is it dying,this board control everythings.Like it take in the outside incomming signals sources,like the tv incomming broadcasting signal cable wire and all the external electronic unit divices plug it into the tv.80-90% this tv problems it is the causes by the tv T-CON decoders board only.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a reburbish T-CON decorders board and the tv main board Tuner signal board for the replacement.
Replace lower scan converter PCB, which plugged into Y-Sustainer Board, located to the left of the display if you poke back cover open. There are 2 of them, but in some models might be the one, long PCB.don't wait to fix it! otherwise, you will knock out Y- Sustainer and upper scan converter. That will cause you to spend few hundreds to fix it. Good luck, Alex's TV Service, Philadelphia, Pa, 215-806-5980.
I am a military spouse and our same tv did the same thing on Super Bowl Sunday 2009! We did everything we know to do: call the company, called the repair man, etc. There apparently isn't a solution to this that wouldn't cost more than the tv is worth. So I got an attorney to start a class action:

hi....Your tv picture is managed by several boards, the two specific ones are the ysus and the xsus. The Y controlls the horizontal pixelation and the X the verticle, if you are having horizontal problems then its the Ysus thats faulty, on this particular set, the Ysus board has two accompaning buffers that are particularly troublesome. I've had more than one of these sets in the shop recently with the same ailment.Sounds like your buffers are starting to go out. The screen is split horizontally by the two long skinny buffers attatched to the Y main, if the bottom one has one leg in the grave you'll be getting a partially black screen or no picture at all. The colored lines running through the screen are more typical of a failing buffer. Are you interested in taking this set apart and putting a couple hundred into fixing it? When buffers go they usually take the Y main too. Worse case scenario you're gonna be out about $350 dollars to fix it yourself. Best case, a ribbon is loose on the bottom buffer and with a dismantle you'll be able to connect it again..
Then recently, these additional problems:
1. The picture cannot be restored by turning off then on.
2. Sometimes, several channels will have the same picture.
3. Sometimes several channels will have the same ghost-like picture.
the above all problems are due to one that is weak signal.
1 check for antena or cable or satellite input is ok or wire might be defective due to old.
2 input socket is loose some where.
3 loose contact near tuner or some print break.
4 at last & final its tuner might be defective.
hope this will help.
