Adjustment to size of picture frame - model ws6680
I have just replaced the lopt on my tv but the vertical and horizontal frame size now requires adjusting. Do I need to enter service mode via the remote ( if applicable ) or do I need to tweak components. I would be grateful if you could give instruction. Many thanks

To get into the service menu using the remote
turn the volume down with the button on the front of the tv ( do not release). Whilst holdind tv vol- button press the button on the remote with a circle and three text lines for a few secs. This should let you enter the mode.

Vertical or frame rolling indicates adjustment of the frame hold is required or perhaps there is a synchronisation fault.
Breaking of the picture in the horizontal plane is caused by the line hold requiring adjustment though the symptom can be connected with interior or exterior signal problems or perhaps a power supply fault, especially where both the line and frame are affected together.
It is probably a task for an engineer or at least someone with access to the servicing instructions.
Make a fist with ur hand and bang on the tv bazel frame.The tv picture flickers back or bounces back to a normal picture.The tv have a vertical or a horizontal hold ics have coldsoldering joints and requiring resoldering.If u bang on the tv bazel frame picture don't flickers back or bounces back to a normal picture.The tv have a vertical or a horizontal hold ics are dead require changes those ics chips.If u don't have all the tools.Can't do a basic soldering work or able to changes those ics chips.Shop around for tv shops for estamate and repairing prices for repairing.
If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention
There are Horizontal and Vertical size controls behind the back cover that need to be adjusted using a hand held tool. This adjustment requires a trained tech. High Voltage from the set is dangerous.
However, there maybe some limited controls that may help through the on screen menu.
To get into the setup menu, you need the original Remote that came with the TV.
Hold the Menu Key down until a box appears in the corner of the screen, then press 9,8,7,6 Enter. this takes you to the service menu. Just scroll through the items to find Horiz Size and Vert Size.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control. 4.14.2 Viewing Modes Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3). Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom. Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles. Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.
Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode will return to widescreen.
That's still repairable here some tips need to consider as follow:
Intermittent loss of syncronisation, both horizontal and vertical
The surface mounted power transistor on the teletext module requires
resoldering. As there is evidence of scorching on the board the use of
a more substantial component would be indicated perhaps with small
Picture displaced vertically, picture too high or low
This problem was cured by entering the service mode (menu then
4,7,2,5), then pressing the green fastext button to access geometry
settings, selecting VP1 (vertical position) and adjusting as necessary 3)
Vertical line at the left of the picture
Replace L506 on A board, replacement part number 1-407-366-00 4)
Problems with screen size
Look out for 2 x 2.2uF electrolytics (sometimes red in color) 5)
Vertical height oversize
The eprom was found to be faulty (nvm)
"Guest" obviously has no idea what he is talking about. There is no such thing as "frame section" and if the vertical IC, ramp generator or vertical hold circuits were bad, you would have no vertical at all. If you mean that there are thin white lines at the top 3 inches of the picture, and the top of the picture seems folded back on itself, it means that the pump-up capacitor is going bad in the vertical output circuit. This is a very easy thing to correct but should be done by a qualified tech.
