Question about Mitsubishi CS-26201 TV

Open Question

Can't see scroll at bottom of screen

I can't read the text that is scrolled across the bottom of my screen. Where is the adjustment that will allow me to size it properly?
I've looked throughout the owner's guide to no avail.

Thanks for your help

If the set is still in warranty I would get a shop to fix this. If not and the set is over 5 years old and had a good picture in the past, I would suspect failing capacitors in the vertical circuit. On older sets, you could adjust this out with controls located on the main circuit board. With these newer sets, you would have to adjust it via service menus using both the remote control as well as the video button on the TV itself. For instance, on a model PF2720 which has a CH-16CD chassis (may or may not be the same as yours) you would have to first decrease the volume to zero then press both the mute button on the remote control and the video button on the TV at the same time to get into the service menu then by using the menu select buttons on the remote control go down to where the symbols S2 VAM comes up, and that setting when adjusted would vary the vertical height of the picture. It might also be necessary to adjust the VSH to shift the vertical up or down so there are no lines at the top of the screen and you could still read the bottom. When finished, you would have to press the timer(?) button on the remote the key that looks like an apple with a stick in the center to get out of the service menu. Note that if you try this, do not tamper with any other adjustments, or you may never get the set back to normal again. Since I do not have the instructions for your particular set, you may not even be able to get to these adjustments by using this method. If you have a TV shop nearby, they may be able to do this for a nominal charge as they would not have to take the back off the set to adjust it. If you do decide to do this procedure, write down the values before changing them in case you have to back track to where they were.

SOURCE: Continuous scrolling

If you feel up to it, there is probably a potmeter inside that you could try to adjust. I tried this on a TV a long time ago. You should know, though, that there are thousands of volts in some capacitors in there (so I've been told) that might shock you if you're not careful. *Even if the TV has been unplugged!* The capacitors store power and are not automatically discharged when the TV is unplugged. It's the parts on the cathode ray tube that are (most) dangerous, so don't poke around with your fingers or a metal object. I would probably leave this one to a qualified technecian, though. If you do open it and fix it, make sure to get all the dust in there out while you're at it to prevent any fires later. Your TV will have collected a lot of dust.

All things on my imac desktop is bigger by 2x


You may have
- Adjusted the screen resolution inadvertently (go to the System Preferences > Displays panel to fix this, adjust the screen resolution to a higher setting, i.e. toward the bottom of the list)
- Inadvertently used "screen zoom" by holding control and doing a scroll with the mouse trackball (or a 2-finger scroll with the mighty mouse). To fix this, try holding control and scrolling the mouse's scroll wheel down. (Or swiping downward with 2 fingers on the mighty mouse if you are using one of those)
- Accidentally adjusted the size of the icons in the finder. You can fix this by going to the finder (click the desktop) and hit command J (or just go to View > Show View Options). This will allow you to adjust the size of the icons on the desktop, or any other window.

What is the Insert Pause and Delete Break key for


These keys used to be very useful in console mode (without the GUI). They are still useful in graphical systems.
PrtSc allows you to copy the graphical content of a screen as an image and paste it in document editing program. It copies the whole screen (with windows overlapping as if it were a collage)
Used in conjunction with the SHIFT key it copies the top window (the active window).

The Pause Break key halts the scrolling of a text on the screen in Console Mode. Imagine you are in a Dos system or Linux console and you type Print with the name of a text file. It will start scrolling rapidly across the screen. Pressing the pause Break key allows you to STOP/HALT the scrolling so that you can read what is being shown.

If you are running a long program in console mode (the old way) the program will only print messages to the console when asked to. If a calculation takes to long and you have no idea what it is doing you can push the Break key and the system halt the execution of the program (suspend) until you issue the termination command or the resume command.

The DEL key issue a delete command to erase the highlighted character or word or whole paragraph in text editing mode. If you press CTRL ALT DEL a Windows based system will raise the task manager to allow you to either turn computer OFF, kill a task or what have you. Just try it. On old console based windows (3.2, 98, Me, 2000) it will reboot the system.

The Insert or INS key allows you to toggle between Insert or Overwrite in text editing software.

As to the Sys Req key function, that is not clear, it depends on the hardware you are using. Basically it sends a low-level message to the operating system to force it to interrupt what it was doing to return control to the console operator. Most people will nowadays safely ignore it. Most systems just do that:they ignore it.

Long text messages cut off


You should be able to scroll using the down arrow on the main menu button, however I can tell you as an AT&T customer that their text system doesn't allow as long text messages as some other carriers do.

Picture size won't fit screen. Can't see scrolling text at bottom (e.g. sports scores on ESPN)


hi there,

its probably not the tv but the set top box you need to fix. go to the settings and select the mode you want ie. widescreen 16:9 etc

then go to the tv and select the full mode or widescreen mode at 16:9

that should solve your problem. it takes some time to find the combination between the set top box and the tv to get it right

good luck
