On my TV, the picture slants slightly from right to left. This is only really noticeable watching programs where caption bars or crawlers appear at the top or bottom of the screen, such as CNN, ESPN or watching Football with the info bar on the screen showing the score, time remaining etc.
For a caption bar on the bottom of the screen, on the right hand side it looks fine, but on the left hand side, the bottom part of the bar is invisible.
Is it possible to fix / adjust this?

Re: Picture slants right to left
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.

I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but: 1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio. 2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays. NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options. 4:3 Programming [Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen. [Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen. [Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off. [Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal. 16:9 Programming [Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is. [Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size. [Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation. [Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation
The adjustment is done by opening the TV back cover, the part that looks like a cone(YOKE) that is mounted at the back of the picture tube needs to be slightly rotate it. To do this you will need to loose the screw that is holding that part and rotate it left or right.
Before doing this, unplug the TV from the main AC power.
Hope this helps.
The yoke has probably come loose and tilted.. From the rear of the set looking on the back of the crt you'll find a copper wire wound magnet called the yoke. It terminates on the neck of the yoke with a clamp. With the set off slightly loosen the clamp and turn the yoke assembly in the opposite direction - key word here is slightly - and apply power to check the alignment.
Keep doing this until you achieve the alignment you want. And always remember to unplug the set between attempts.
Your deflection yoke (a coil around the neck of the picture tube) must have gotten turned.
Your can turn the picture upside down by rotating this coil.
If your set is in warranty, you should return it. When this "yoke" is adjusted the color is affected too. If you try this yourself you'd void the warranty and mess up your color.
