If the set is still in warranty I would get a shop to fix this. If not and the set is over 5 years old and had a good picture in the past, I would suspect failing capacitors in the vertical circuit. On older sets, you could adjust this out with controls located on the main circuit board. With these newer sets, you would have to adjust it via service menus using both the remote control as well as the video button on the TV itself. For instance, on a model PF2720 which has a CH-16CD chassis (may or may not be the same as yours) you would have to first decrease the volume to zero then press both the mute button on the remote control and the video button on the TV at the same time to get into the service menu then by using the menu select buttons on the remote control go down to where the symbols S2 VAM comes up, and that setting when adjusted would vary the vertical height of the picture. It might also be necessary to adjust the VSH to shift the vertical up or down so there are no lines at the top of the screen and you could still read the bottom. When finished, you would have to press the timer(?) button on the remote the key that looks like an apple with a stick in the center to get out of the service menu. Note that if you try this, do not tamper with any other adjustments, or you may never get the set back to normal again. Since I do not have the instructions for your particular set, you may not even be able to get to these adjustments by using this method. If you have a TV shop nearby, they may be able to do this for a nominal charge as they would not have to take the back off the set to adjust it. If you do decide to do this procedure, write down the values before changing them in case you have to back track to where they were.

G'day mate

Sounds like the power supply regulation has gone high volts, and the screen is blooming because of it. I suggest getting a tech to look at it, will probably have the usual issues of capacitors failing in the power supply. Cheers

Press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired. • If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels..

Here's how to fix it - I have a PF 2425, and it's driven me absolutely up the wall. Videogames are useless because you can't even see the crucial gauges etc. Likewise, subtitles and credits in films are cut off. it's ridiculous, especially considering how easy it is to fix (if you know how).

1. Decrease volume to 0.
2. Press MUTE so the tv says "MUTE" onscreen.
3. Hold MUTE on the REMOTE and MENU on the TV simultaneously until the service menu appears.

It's important not to screw around here too much. Use your arrows on the remote to navigate, the first option likely will say "MENU.0" or something like that. Use that to flip through the pages. What you're looking for are values like V Zoom, V Scroll, etc. Same goes with the H values. Toy with these a little and you'll be able to get the tv scanning perfectly.

I can confirm this worked for me! So good luck.

Any chance there's a manual override using just the set?

You may have bad solder joint inside the remote and especially on the l.e.d at the front, happens often(remote dropped etc.). If you have a soldering iron you can open it a make a round of the solder joints, it should fix your problem. Hope this will help.

How to change a bulb in a apex pf2720 tv


I'd guess it is not a bulb issue if the audio also stopped working. Check your input source, connections and the like. Try using a different input (ie input 4 or the front AV connectors) and a different source (ie your old Nintendo instead of your DVD player).

How to program the TV remote to work with an APEX DVD player? I do not have the APEX DVD code.


As far as I can remember, the original JVC remote doesn't support a DVD player. It doesn't have the necessary buttons to control the player functions. You'll need to stick with the original Apex remote if you have it, or look for a universal remote that is compatible.

LOCKED


Hello there,

If you have the original Apex remote supplied with the TV, press and hold the FUNCTION key in the top left corner of the remote, and then press MUTE while still holding this down.

This method works for many Apex Digital TVs, including AT1302, AT2002, AT2402, AT2702 - plus most other models which have the FUNCTION key.

If you have any other remote, then the method for switching it off will be a combination of 2 keys - one of which - will probably (although not guaranteed) to be mute. The correct key combination will be different on almost every remote, so it's simply trial and error to find it. It's also advisable to switch off all other devices before trying random key combinations!

If you don't have the original remote or any remote you can use with the TV, unlocking it may not be possible.

If you need further assistance, please let me know the brand and model number of the remote you are using to operate the TV - if any.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

It really sounds like the child lock has been activated. This uaually blocks the keys on the TV, but the remote should work. If your remote doesn't work either, make sure the batteries work. If your remote for the TV can operate other apliances such as a VCR or DVD player, make sure it is in TV mode. If there are any buttons marked TV, VCR, DVD you could try pressing the TV button to set it in TV mode. If the To has a text-tv function there might be more than one button marked TV; one for setting TV mode as posed to DVD operating mode, and one for getting TV picture back when viewing text pages. -Chris
