Yes you have a problem I'm afraid in the pincussion or horizontal width circuit. These circuits usually have alot of high voltage in them and is not a safe place to be experiementing around with. Most of the time, with a problem like this, there are bad capacitors or a correction transistor has failed. If the set is over a few years buy a new one. Good Luck

TruTech T2000D Picture Settings

Somewhere in that menu (look carefully and scroll all the way down on each page) is a setting for format---set should have 4x3 (letterbox), 16x9 which is full screen for HD and may also have zoom and wide zoom.

There should also be a button on the remote for this.

I've got an old philips TV that worked perfectly until last night. It now just shows a narrow band about 2 inches wide of picture horizontally across the screen no matter what I try. Is she dead? its...

No, you can't pin this on the kids. The trouble is in the TV's vertical output circuit. It may be just a matter of bad connections, and you can see if giving the set a whack has any effect. Sometimes the picture will pop back to full height if it's just a connection issue. More likely, some of the capacitors in the circuit or possibly the vertical output device itself need to be replaced. Over time, these parts can wear out (electrically, not mechanically) and lead to a variety of picture problems. The good news is that the parts themselves aren't expensive, but the labor to repair the TV is. I don't know what kind of labor prices shops are charging these days, but I'd give a ballpark figure of $75 to $100 for the repair. Most shops have a charge to check a TV and give an estimate; the charge is usually applied to the repair if you get the set fixed. I've been away from shop service now for a long while, so I could be way off.

You say the set is old, but not exactly how old. Picture tubes don't last forever, and sooner or later the one in this set will go. It may lose focus or develop color problems, or burn out like a light bulb, or have other internal problems. Bottom line is it's on borrowed time, and there's no way to know whan the end will come. This may be something to think about if you consider repairing this set. Rather than sink money into repairing an older set, this might be a good time to shop around for a replacement. If you don't want to go for a new flat-screen, check eyour local Craig's list or visit resale shops. Lots of TV sets become available as people buy new ones. I've seen many good sets in a Goodwill store near my home in the $20 to $50.

Oversized picture problem

Several possibilities, if you use a set top box to get your signal like a cable box or satellite receiver they will have settings that effect picture size. It could be a high voltage problem inside the TV causing an effect called blooming, if that is it you can usually change brightness and or contrast and see the picture get smaller and larger. I don't recall that set having any customer settings that could give that symptom.

Size of the picture decreased

If this only happens with your cable or satellite box this may be an adjustment in your box. So you may need to contact them and find out how to adjust the picture size. This tv may have a wide mode setting on the tv remote. Pushing this button may select full,wide,wide zoom or normal size. On many occasions the tv stations control the picture size. Good Luck

32" TV Screen Problem

This is a pin cushoning fault. The failure is in the pin amp, and also most likely in the scan amplifier sections. The scan amps and pin amp in part of their functions work together to control the paralax of the picture scanning. They also control the dynamic focus.

To service this, you will need the training, service information, the testing tools, parts availability, and the necessary tools to follow up.

These types of faults can be complex to service, and can be a chalenge to even an experienced tech.

The Picture is too big for the tv screen

Try your format button... or your wide/size button... they're all a bit different but they all have different screen size capabilities.

hope this helps

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
