Horizontal is off level when tv is turned on

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?

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

I have ricoh sp c820dn printer here is message say turn power off then set the pcu correctly .cyan

it looks like the Cyan Unit is not set correctly, so you need to open the front door, in the area behind the front door up you will see the toner bottles under the bottles it has a cream-white plate, you will see in the middle of the plate one handle - leveler which is blocked with a plastic piece, which have a ***** in the middle remove the ***** than remove the plastic piece, after that pull the handle - leveler up to be set from horizontal position into 45 degrees angle upwards. After that in the upper right corner of the plate you will see another handle- leveler. This one you need to set from horizontal position into vertical position upwards. After you move the both leveler, you will need to pull the hole cream-white plate toward you. Inside you will see 4 boxes (PCU's) with green levelers. Put inside firmly the cyan box (PCU) under the Cyan box, below the box writes on a sticker Cyan.. After you do this close back the creame-white plate, put the both levelers into horizontal position and close the the front door. If the problem persist than is not just a small fix...That is for now, if the problem continues please ask more guestions. Good Luck. :)

Lights stay on inside while driving

interior light's that stay on after doors are fully closed

the lights are controlled by a switch in every door frame that you have and last time i counted a winstar had 5

also the winstar has a bypass switch in ceiling just over the rear view mirror (moved to front console below radio for models with factory installed tv set ) this will need to be checked as it may have gotten bumped and is now bypassed all the time

also each door frame switch will need to be closely inspected for anything that looks funny Example: all the other door switches stick straight out but that one it's pointing down

other than that a qualified tech with special troubleshooting tools will need to determine what switch is defective and replace it

Cant fit it through the door to move to another room.

Only 3 choices:

1 - leave it in place

2 - Take it partially apart so it will fit through the door

3 - Widen the door frame.

Since the treadmill got into the room, it should be able to get out. Most likely #2 is the option for you.

I have never used a leveler, I purchased a Stanley 43-512. How do I use it?

Here's how a bubble level works a small tube is filled with liquid allowing only a small pocket of air inside. The concept is that air will always rise to the highest point. The idea is that if you lay this tube horizontal to the earths gravitational pull and the pocket of air goes to one side than that side is higher than the other. If the bubble rests in the center than both sides are of equal height. Your particular level has three bubble dials for vertical, horizontal, and 45 degree placement. Say you want to level a picture on the wall. if you place the level on top of the picture frame you will use the center dial and adjust the frame until the pocket of air sits between the two indicator lines in the tube. You hold the level on the side of the frame, in which case you would adjust using the dial that is perpendicular to the level. the 45 degree would only be used if you want something to be 45 degrees from the gravitational plane.

LG plasma tv picture moves frame by frame horizontally

If the TV is still under warranty, I would begin there. The bad thing about a plasma TV is that they cannot be fixed. I would watch it as long as I could stand it. When you buy a new one, be sure that you a LCD HDTV or a projection. Sorry.

Pink coloration framing my picture

Are there any speakers close to the TV? Move them, as the magnets in them are causing the problem.

If the TV has a 'degaussing' feature, select that.

Try turning off at the power point, waiting for a minute and turning back on... you may have to do this a few times.

Failing all the above, a tech can use a degaussing wand to restore it.
