My sisters TV picture keeps shrinking to about half size, and after atime comes back to fullsize. I do not know the make. Other TVs in the house are OK. Could this be expensive to fix? Thanks, R.L.

    Thanks, Dan,, it is an ordinary tube TV, I think it is a job for a professional.



    If it is expensive, then a new TV! RL35MEG.

I can only provide a [possible solution here without the make and model, but from your description I'd guess that there are poor solder connections at or around the vertical IC. I am assuming that this is a CRT based projection set. Other types will have different solutions. If you can solder and you are comfortable working inside the set (there are high voltages present even when unplugged), you should be able to fix this yourself. Locate the vertical IC (usually a small flat IC attached to a heatsink) and resolder the pins. If that fails to resolve the problem, try replacing the IC.

Update this with the make and model along with any progress.

Thanks,
Dan

This is a problem with the vertical circuit and can be as simple as poor solder connections within that circuit or defective parts. If you have no experience with soldering or TVs, this should go to a service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $30-$40 range for and IC +/or capacitors. If you'd like to attempt this yourself, please supply the exact make and model so I can post the parts required along with additional instructions. Please note that TVs contain potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged.

Thanks,
Dan

PLTV-32- Picture on screen is larger than TV screen.


if you have HD cable try shrinking the picture there. LCD's are not subject to 'bloom' like
analog tvs. try the aspect button on the remote.

wrong picture size on a digital tv is a result of the input signal.

After power on TV the screen shrinks to (50%) and then back out to (100%) back and forth for about 15 minutes


the quetion is:  have you checked your format/aspect settings? if it is on auto-format, picture size will vary due to program you are watching.....or is it a raster/width problem? The thing about the time on digital clocks: daylite saving time usually started last saturday, the federal goverment changed it, the fall back time is now this saturday! Most newer digital clocks auto-change according to old schedule....( not sure if you were aware of this )  let us know whether a width problem or what......

Shrinking picture


All symptoms indicate a problem in the vertical circuit,the first thing to look for will be loose conection on the vertical output IC,sometimes this IC goes bad completly and it needs to be replaced.If you are familiar with soldering electronics you can take care of it but if you are not too familiar you can play it safe and take it to a servicer ,it will be a lot less expensive than if they come to your house.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
