Try going into picture setting and reduce the zoom angle or if it's whilst you are watching Sky TV go into System Settings, Picture Settings and change the Aspect Ratio (ie. From 4:3 to 16:9 or visa versa)
Possible that the main power supply unit which is the SMPS- switch mode power supply- has a faulty capacitor or in the INVERTOR board which has changed the value and so the frequency being changed can cause higher huming level- reduced to lower frequency.
so check the board for leaks , if so replace. Also check if the threshold voltages are below level in these circuits. if so the capacitor can be identified. If there is change after the component heats then simulate the circuit board and confirm using a hair dryer.
First turn on and check with flashlight 2 in. from screen and see if there is a picture. If no picture then open back panel door by taking big black screw out of middle and 2 screw at bottom of panel and slide panel downward, pull off and unscrew metal plate and you should see bad caps in this set, this is what have to be replaced.
there will be a button on the remote that says aspect, or pic size, hit that button, untill you get the size you want, if you cant find the button, go into the menue, click the picture, or video section, and look for aspect racio, or pic size in there
if nobody will repair the tv, then your probably better off buy a new one. yours could have the bulbs blow, there could be something wrong with the board or the power supply. i don't recommend working on a tv because they are very easy to mess up and do even more damage. for your next tv, get a higher rated brand like samsung or sony. they tend to be more reliable and are easier to fix/find somebody to fix
i have the same problem. i took my tv to radioshack, and they said that they dont tale tvs that are bigger that 27 inches. so i took to one of these places that fix tv, they are charging me $270, beacuse they have to change the power supply and sometranssitors,
your picture tube is not blown you are having problem in the color circuit there is an ic that controls that circuit,the tv is also having a vertical problem an ic also controls that circuit you will have to call a tech to repair your tv good luck
