Re: Screen adjustment

The remotes dont work so now you cant get into the service menu and crank up the horizontal width thats because the micro no longer has eerom memory to correct the deflection circuits two possible causes a chip resistor ( i forget the value in the front of the pcb and on bottom is open and not supplying dc to the remote reciever and/or the eerom its been a while since i saw that problem

Re: Screen adjustment

Something is going bad in the horizontal deflection circuit,you should not have to adjust at all,if this part fails (possibly a capacitor)all the way is goin to take the output transistor and a fuse ,I suggest you call for assistance now before it gets worst.As for the remote you can find it in,just put the model number of the tv and the word remote and all the information you need will show up.If you are familiar with tv service you want to take a look for overheated components close to the flyback but if you are not too familiar be safe and ask for help.

No picture with sound

check the tail end of the picture tube do you see a light on it?that is the heater of the picture.without it your screen will be black. If there is no light from the heater there should be an open resistor connected to he heater replace them. .next check the screen adjustment of your plyback.screen adjustment is right in the body of the plyback there are 2 adjustment in there the upper is the focus adjustment and the lower is the screen adjustment turn it clockwise untill you reach the preferred adjustment.. tnx

Sides of the picture are encroaching and making watching bothersome. Can this be adjusted by the consumer in some way?

this is most likely a problem with a capacitor going back in the horizontal stage of the tv's circuit. if the tv has a horizontal knob on the front somwhere you may be able to expand the width of the picture for while but eventually the problem will continue in which case if you know someone who knows how to replace electronic components the bad capacitor(s) will need to be replaced or the tv will have to be replaced.

Has the image been "zoomed" into?  This is usually the result of a image that has been adjusted to fill the screen.  This is not the same as adjusting the aspect ratio as that would still show the entire image even if distorted.  When the image is cropped or is missing information, a zoom feature is usually the culprit.
If this isn't the problem, you maybe able to adjust the TV's horizontal/vertical placement through the TV's onscreen menu but only if it provides that option.  Do you see other channels that appear to fit properly?  I have seen certain channels not fit correctly while others do and this is due to the signal, not your TV.
