My elderly parents say their new Sansui TV is cutting off tops of heads. The model is a 26" TV-DVD ; hdlc dvd (260a ? or 2600). Anyone know what the correct button on the remote is for adjustment, or other solution?

To my knowledge this is not an issue that can be fixed completely without obtaining a new motherboard/DVD player and replacing them altogether. Another member, Ori, posted that it might be possible to trace the handshake signal the built in DVD player uses to communicate with the TV's motherboard. The correct signal would "unfreeze" the motherboard allowing for a fully functional TV. Unfortunately I haven't the time or skill to do that.
As far as the availability of replacements, I have seen the whole sets go on ebay quite frequently, but they are usually ones that have this same problem. ApparentlyMintek went bankrupt some time ago per what little information I was able to find out about them, so that cuts any hope of a new replacement as well.
First go into the setup menu of your DVD player and make sure "subtitles" are turned off.
Next, put a DVD into the player and when it gets to the menu, go into the audio setup.
If subtitles are turned on, turn them off. If subtitles are turned off, turn them on and exit the menu, then go back into the menu and turn them off again. I've seen this reset this same problem on some DVD players.
