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.

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.

Control of vertical TV image projected on the screen


You can try looking for 2 things

1. A button on your remote that says either: ARC, Ratio, 16:9, 4:3.... Some remotes have a picture of a square with arrows pointing out towards each corner..... I'm unfamiliar with this set, but it sounds like a widescreen, so give it a go

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 volume problem


I had the same problem with the volume in digital mode and found the answer here: http://www.justanswer.com/questions/1m0ln-sony-fd-trinitron-wega-tv

The actual solution is towards the bottom of the post and hard to read through, so I simplified the instructions below:

On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

Go into your settings of the TV menu or there will be a single button on the JVC remote marked "CC" for closed caption. Press it or in the menu turn off the "TEXT" mode. With the text mode on you are allowing the TV to display text information wich means usually a black rectangular box that appears on the screen with no text in it. Usually on the cc button just press it until it scrolls through turning off the CC or text modes.

Here's how to fix it - I have a PF 2425, and it's driven me absolutely up the wall. Videogames are useless because you can't even see the crucial gauges etc. Likewise, subtitles and credits in films are cut off. it's ridiculous, especially considering how easy it is to fix (if you know how).

1. Decrease volume to 0.
2. Press MUTE so the tv says "MUTE" onscreen.
3. Hold MUTE on the REMOTE and MENU on the TV simultaneously until the service menu appears.

It's important not to screw around here too much. Use your arrows on the remote to navigate, the first option likely will say "MENU.0" or something like that. Use that to flip through the pages. What you're looking for are values like V Zoom, V Scroll, etc. Same goes with the H values. Toy with these a little and you'll be able to get the tv scanning perfectly.

I can confirm this worked for me! So good luck.

Sansui - BOTTOM OF SCREEN CUT OFF


Your problem is not a vertical alighnment or size adjustment. No, Im sorry to say its the old vertical output IC and /or the small capacitors around the ic and in the vertical circuit. If you dont have the right tools, like a soldering iron a multimeter know how to read a schematic diagram, then you should seek out a repair person to assist you in this repair.
