Is it worth repairing ~8 years old JVC K-series 29" TV. If the screen is receiving 16x9 theater broadcast, lines are not at the top of the screen. If it's a standard tv show full screen, about ~10 white lines appear, not real bad, but enough to be annoying.
Stationed in Europe and not sure if to purchase Flat Panel and worry about shipping it back when returning to U.S, or to hold off and just fix this one to last ~8 more months

That usually indicates a capacitor going out in the power section or flyback section of the board inside. Depending on your repair shop this can be a fairly cheap repair (or not). Get an estimate and know what a replacement tv is worth. Sometimes its cheaper to get a new one than repair the older tv. As well power problems can stress other parts so it might get fixed only to fail later.
a couple of questions here 1st. 1) what are you displaying or what is your source? a) Regular off air TV b) Cable TV c) DSS Satelite d) DVD 2) Please bear in mind that the new TV's will format your screen to either fill it's screen ' if you choose this feature' with what ever you wish to display or it will display the appropriate image of what it is receiving. You may have just an off air anntena which still recieves old TV reception '4x3' aspect. The new digital TV is now a '16x9' aspect but your old off air antena may not be able to pick this signal up.
Please be aware that your new TV may be able to display the 16x9 at over 1,000 lines of resolution from top to bottom of your screen. Older TV or off air was only 4x3 and just under 300 lines of resolution from top to bottom.
If there is no power at all, then try bypassing surge protector, check power cable, and check if power cord is fused.
If unit has power but does not start, then it is on protection.
Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.
Causes that can start protect mode are:
Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.
Bad speaker wiring. Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.
Internal fault. Internal
fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not
work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In
this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an
experienced person. If the unit is less than one year old, or if you
want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the
I have this same unit. It is many years old, and does not handle any modern codecs, nor home theater duties. It was, however, a very good unit for its day. If I were to sell mine, I would not accept less than 100 US with remote.
The vertical circuit is not pulling the top of the picture to the top of the screen (CRT) correctly. Its possible you have a loose wire or device ( after moving ) . If you have vertical agustments on the back , you may be able to adjust the picture taller; if the picture becomes stretched ( non - linear ) then you definately have tv tech only problems. At that point I'd really think twice about a repair and consider a new DTV or HDTV set. If the unit was damaged by a mover , then you may have a claim against them .
