Question about Philips 27PT8419 27" TV
I assume my 29PT8419 is just a larger variant of the 27PT8419. Problem: The picture is stretched horizontally loosing about 30% of the image area.When text scrolls on screen bottom to top it looks concave, sucked in towards the center. Trimmers at the back only allowed vertical size and position adjustment. I did not find any but the above two. Also, when forced to 16:9 mode, the image is slightly rotated clockwise. Please advise.
SOURCE: Overscan is off a bit
Does's the set have a repair history? If it was previously serviced , the capacitor which is connected between the emitter and the collector of the horizontal output transistor transistor might have been changed with the wrong value, which would cause and overscan situation.The service menu for this set is even hard for technicians to use. It' my opinion if the service manual will not correct the horizontal width, the wrong capacitor was probably installed. Scrivitron (also these sets are known for the forementioned capacitor to short , flame or open.

Hope you have fixed this problem by now, if that tv is unserviced, I mean if nobody has ever opened it, it could be a problem with the positioning of your tv, just tilt the tv in different positions and find out the position in which it will show the right fit. If it is serviced, especially yoke is changed, this is rare, it could be because the position of yoke is not aligned properly.
