Vertical rolling of picture

I moved the TV from one room of the house to another and apparently I messed up the vertical and horizontal settings because the picture now has 3" black/grey sections with the picture rolling. Per the manual I should go to VGA, press menu, go to geometrics and then scroll down to Display Adjustment, then scroll right to Vertical and Horizontal position. However, the menu screen will not allow me to scroll down past Backlight, it will not allow me to adjust the Display. Can this problem be fixed?

Picture is rolling

In the old days there was a control at the back of every tv labelled "vertical hold" that needed adjustment when the picture rolled. As tv sets became better that control was at first moved inside the cabinet and then finally deleted.

The vertical hold controlled the amount of synchronising signal (that is extracted from the signal received from the antenna) reached the frame oscillator. Today's electronics are so stable the vertical and horizontal synchronisation is automatic so while sometimes a rolling picture can be caused by a bad signal it almost invariably caused by an internal electronic fault needing the attention of an engineer.

My RCA tv picture is jumping

Vertical jumping may have a vertical hold issue, horizontal may have a horizontal hold issue. Most older tv sets will have some knobs or adjustable screws for vertical and horizontal hold. Turn your set on and check for these knobs on the back of your set and adjust until your picture is in as well as you can get it

Picture is rolling and we can't find a vert. hold adjustment. The original remote has been lost so we are using a universal remote.

there should be a control on thr rear of the tv set that does the vertical, and one for the horizontal holds. Sounds like it has been accidently knocked when doing house work!

Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!

Tv roll

Are you sure the roll isnt Vertical? as if it is then all you need to do is adjust the VERTICAL HOLD PRESET POT which should be located on the PCB somewhere, its very unusual for TV.S to roll horizontally as then the picture just goes out of sync. and you would not see a picture at all. When you find the pot turn it ( with a small screw driver) slowly until the rolling stops, if it does not stop then you have a faulty component in the vert. sync. circuitry.

Horizontal line in my TV.

"Guest" obviously has no idea what he is talking about. There is no such thing as "frame section" and if the vertical IC, ramp generator or vertical hold circuits were bad, you would have no vertical at all. If you mean that there are thin white lines at the top 3 inches of the picture, and the top of the picture seems folded back on itself, it means that the pump-up capacitor is going bad in the vertical output circuit. This is a very easy thing to correct but should be done by a qualified tech.

That is not a vertical roll from side to side, this is a horizontal rolling. if the vertical had a roll it would be going from top to bottom. This is most likely a coupling between the horizontal sync circuit and the sync separator circuit. Good Luck

Horizontal roll on mitusbishi 35" tv

is this a horizontal black line going up or down? if yes, this sympton is caused by a trouble in the integrated circuit or in the vertical oscillator circuit. this symptons has 2 variations. one is the intermittent rolling of the picture. this referred to as the "loose vertical hold" the other variations is the continuous upward or downward rolling of the picture

Picture has a horizontal row

this symptom is caused by a trouble in the integrated circuit of in the vertical oscillator circuit. try to look if your tv has a vertical hold control at the back or inside, if it does not have, u have a problem in the vertical oscillator circuit. by the way, its not the horizontal that u should concentrate into, its the vertical. coz this is a vertical sync problem.
