I was moving the tv from one room to another and I bumped a door frame at some point between the two rooms after which the horizontal display/picture is tilted. I dont see any buttons that control horizontal or vertical. I must have bump something askew inside the box??? Any ideas how i could fix this?

Re: horizontal is off level when tv is turned on
Sure the deflection yoke at the neck of the crt has a screw just slack or unscrew it a little turn on the tv .use a mirror to see the front of the tv then rotate the yoke clockwise or anticlockwise to get the picture straight then tighten back screw

The fault is with some loose contacts. Check and rectify this. There is no more components to replace. Look for any loose solder terminals. That is all. But it will be a difficult task to reach to the exact point of fault.
It has gone into a self protect mode where it will shut down because you have a fault in the frame stage of the TV (horizontal line). This will most likely be a failure of the frame output IC. Replace this & you should restore the normal picture.
This fault sounds like a frame colllapse. The supply voltage to the frame IC may have gone open circuit or the frame IC itself has gone faulty. Unless you are experienced with electronic repairs I strongly suggest you are best to take it to a repair centre.
jdosk-the high pitch noise you hear is generally from the horizontal output being shorted,the horizontal output is usually near the flyback transformer,get a digital multimeter to checkthis part.Let me know I'll try to help. cooltek Feb.16/08
You have a bad solder connection in the vertical circuit. This will require you to resolder these bad connections before it blows out the vertical output IC or other parts in the circuit. Do this ASAP before you make a small repair into a large one. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, please play it safe and take the set into a pro to do this for you. Good Luck
