Image adjustment for GE 24GP65

The image of my TV has become larger over time (horizontal and vertical) and I would like to know how can I adjust the size of it (probably by accessing the service menu). Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes you can adjust the vertical size in the service menu, but you must be carefull when doing any horizonal adjustment as this can shut down your set .

Hello Laurent
This is pretty easy it's like when you adjust the imgae on your pc monitor, go to the menu then go to settings, select video or image, look for the option and just change it there.

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

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.

RCA CRT TV thin white horizontal lines

Look for bad capacitors in the vertical deflection amp, and in the pin amp sections. This is common on most of these types of TV sets.

The caps tend to go high in ESR with age. It is best to use an ESR meter to find the bad caps. It will be a lot faster than workign out waveforms with a scope.

Wikipedia explanation about capacitor ESR:

Vertical size adjustment on my GE 31GT660 set

I had the same problem. I found the solution in this link.
The only thing that wasn't clear was how to get into the service menu. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the front panel of the TV and press POWER then press VOL+.

Color Problem after replaced Circut Board

When you replace the entire board in a Zenith TV, you must make the adjustments to align the new chassis with the old picture tube. You must adjust the CRT bias and drives as well as the horizontal and vertical parameters. On the older boards there were controls on the main and CRT boards but on the newer boards the adjustments are made with the remote control after entering the service mode. Tune in the shopping channel QVC, set the color and contrast to minimum and lower the brightness until the picture is just visible. Set the CRT bias settings for a pure black and white image, then increase the brightness and contrast to get a very bright picture and if necessary adjust the drive settings so that the bright picture is pure black and white. Return the video settings to normal and then adjust the vertical and horizontal settings so that the info boxes on QVC are centered top, left and bottom. If you are not sure that you can do that right then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
