Jumping screen My Sony has developed a problem with the lower 20% of the screen jumping. It is not constant but every couple of minutes. The lower part just jumps up and down just a 1/4 inch or so. Jay

If you have dropped the TV or it has been bumped significantly you may damaged part of the tv tube section where the electrons are beamed. Sounds like a damaged tube to me. If this occurs when you play a videocassette, you need to adjust the tracking of your videocassette player and the screen jumps will go away. I don't have that problem now, but on the bottom portion of the screen there is slight curvature distortion. In the late 1960's Sony TV's made the industry stand on its ear and could stop a shopper for clear across the showroom to take notice. Keep in mind our televisions are almost 20 years. It is "unheard" of for any tvs to last that long. Mine has lasted that long before developing the problem I posted on this e-bulletin board.

I keep seeing movies where the boxers all train by jumping rope. Why do they do this?

They jump rope to develop cardio endurance as jumping rope definitely keeps your heart rate up. Boxers need strong forearms and this activity targets them. Boxers need strong calves for their quick footwork and jumping rope targets the calves. Boxers also need good rhythm and timing, a skill that is developed in jumping rope.

Jumping Screen


I've had a couple of these. The panel control board is going bad, but there may be a way to make it last a bit longer. If you go into the MENU of the TV, and turn off all the color correction, all the whistles and bells that come inside the tv to "make the picture better," it usually helps. Any kind of motion correction, or any kind of noise reduction (picture noise reduction) should be turned off. If the picture has a cloud of green pixels that seems to pepper the screen, then after you turn off all the stuff in the menu, unplug the TV for 5 minutes, and then plug back in. It should help the picture some.

Hope this helps...
