The problem with my TV is that it is cutting off just the right side of the picture, but the left side is fine. I tried going to the menu but it only lets me adjust the screen vertically. Any ideas on how to get the right side of my TV back would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Adjusting the TV horizontally
There is not a horizontal center on this TV set. This is a fault with the horizontal sweep correction circuit I'm afraid. This circuit is a high voltage circuit and should onlt be serviced by a trained tech. Good Luck

It sounds that you have to enter its service mode to adjust both vertical and horizontal position of the picture. To Philips brand TVs, entering service mode [SAM] mode, and adjusting data values there must be done cautiously. Really it is a skilled work indeed. It will be best to contact any service technician.

I found the user manual online, and the pictures in it are really helpful and make this make a lot more sense, but: 1. Press [SCREEN MODE], to switch the TV aspect ratio. 2. Press [SCREEN MODE] repeatedly until the normal screen displays. NOTE: • Some programs may not offer all display mode options. 4:3 Programming [Sidebar] Sidebar displays a 4:3 picture at its standard 4:3 size. Sidebars will be displayed on the right and left edges of the screen. [Full] Full displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen. [Cinema] Cinema displays a 4:3 picture at a 16:9 size, with less horizontal elongation necessary to fill the screen because a little bit of the top and bottom edge of the screen will be cut off. [Wide] Wide displays the center of the picture as original size and the outer sides of the picture will be elongated. The size of the picture will depend on the original signal. 16:9 Programming [Full] A picture is displayed at 16:9 size as it is. [Zoom] Zoom displays a 16:9 picture without changing its horizontal and vertical ratio, at its maximum size. [Cinema] Cinema displays a 16:9 picture with vertical elongation. [Expand] Expand displays a 16:9 picture with horizontal elongation
You should post more specifics for what you are using this TV for when this happens.
Have you tried different inputs/are they all doing the same thing? Also, if you are using this TV for a computer monitor via S-Vid or any type of converters, you could have an issue from the signal coming through and not the TV itself.
the horizontal stage of your tv has changed the oscillation speed, this can occur due to the following.
i reduction of power
ii capacitors changing values
so take your set for repair before it switches off completely,

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control. 4.14.2 Viewing Modes Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3). Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom. Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles. Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.
Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode will return to widescreen.
Sounds like you may have caps going bad . Adjusting may tend to only stretch the the picture too much . Also when you say horizontal are you saying the top and bottom are closing in ? If yes then your problem is in the vertical section . If side to side then check the horizontal section . Good luck
Sounds like you've got whats called a cold solder connection somewhere in the horizontal width control circuit or a connection in the sweep section. Should'nt be two expensive but unless you have had some soldering and troubleshooting experience I would leave this on to the pros. Good Luck
