Toshiba cf2044j picture expanding

I have a Toshiba cf2044j 20" TV that has worked flawlessly for 15 years. Recently the picture has started growing so that the edges of the display are off the screen. News crawls and captions are off the bottom of the screen, heads are getting cut off and the picture from the sides runs off the edge. Any idea what might cause this?

I have a Ge camcorder 8mm model Cg814. When powered on and placed in the edit/playback mode for reviewing, I can hear the sound, but there is no picture in the viewfinder. There is also no picture on the...

It sounds like it could be: (1) Video track on the tape might be messed up. Or (2) The heads on the camera may be dirty. Or, (3) It may be dirty battery connection. (Most likely, it's dirty heads.)

Solutions: (1) Try playback with a different tape that you know is good. Still nothing?? (2) Run a head cleaner specific to your camera, for about 20 seconds. Remove head cleaner and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Put tape back in and try playback again. This will probably solve it.

Another thing to try.. (3) Turn camera OFF. Remove the battery, wipe off the connectors on both the battery and the camera with a clean cloth. Return battery to the camera.Try playback again.

If these steps don't solve the playback problem, you will probably need a camera repair person.

Hi, I have a Panasonic NV-GS17EB.It is working perfectly fine and a nice camera. But recently the LCD view finder is giving some problem. It goes blank when I open the LCD view finder fully. But it...

the ribbon cable that carries the signal to the screen sounds like it has become damaged
thatcan cause the problem
when it is all the way open it stretches the cable resulting in a gap to form, so when only open part of the way there is still a signal. see if there is anything in the hinge that might be causing the stretching of the cable, as that is almost surely the problem..

I have a sony dv camcorder approx 4 years old. started having problems recently and wont record or play and suggests ejecting tape.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I have a hitachi camcorder and have been unable to finalize the disks. So i do not use it anymore. I am thinking about purchasing something else. I am missing my kids grow up.

If you want to record your happy days, and family growing up, AND be able to view films in years to come, you should NOT use any other sort of camera than Digital 8, it has been going for donkeys years, it is reliable (DVD disks have never been working 100% a fail rate in DVD of over 80% today is simply not good enough.
Get Digital 8 camera from good shops on the net or Ebay sellers.
Please let me know how you get on okay?

Black screen in REC mode, bars across the screen in Playback mode

My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!

Sony dcr-trv120 playback

the problem is with the video head. either it's dirty or broken. if cleaning tape is not solving the problem then i fear you have to get the head changed. an expensive repair.

Red vertical lines/no picture

Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck

No response at all from Camera

a flexible connector cable may have worked loose , causing the camera to not power up - or , any of a number of microfuses may have opened to protect your camera but none of it is user serviceable ( near 8 years of flawless use says - you have taken excellent care of it );
