Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
Replaced laptop screen. New screen same exact size as old. Put in case in exact same position. Now the screen image is a tad lower and a lot less wide than old one. Tried changing resolutions and then can't see bottom screen. Is there a way to center the image or to adjust just the vertical or just the horizontal one at a time? Windows 7 Home Premium
Did you replace it with an identical part? Should work fine if you did. I would contact Toshiba tech services for guidance on this matter. Have you tried it with an external monitor?

Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

That is one big problem with the Vizio, They do not have this option. You may have better luck trying to adjust it through your cable box if you have one. They do offer an option on some of there remotes that says "wide" this will magnify the picture to full screen in most cases, it has been the only solution I have been able to find, besides the setup on the cable box. I hope this helps, Good luck.

I'm afraid when you see vertical line on an lcd panel, it most likely is screen failure. Ebay has plenty of screen from good companies in Texas. I get most of my screens from Ebay store LCDTECH99. They have the best prices, most screens are under 100 bucks and they ship right away. The Toshiba screen is an easy repair, Only the bezel needs to be removed in most cases. Below is a guide to show the process.
