Picture is stretched on top and compressed on bottom
I have a Konka TV that I got from my bf, and the picture just started looking weird. The top half of the tv is really stretched out and makes people look like their foreheads are bigger than their head and the bottom half is really compressed and squished together. When watching aa show it makes everyone look like little people. Is there a way I can fix this speeding little to no money?
Thanks in advance

it is possible the picture format is set to stretched. look for a button on the remote that can do this. it could also be the signal. try looking at a different channel that has lettering along the top and bottom and determine if the entire picture looks like it needs to be moved up. if after all this you can still determine that the picture is misaligned post the model number and i can help you move it up.
If the loss of picture is either on top half or bottom half of screen. there are y buffer boards that go from top to bottom on left side of screen when looking at back that control those sections. when there is loss of half of picture then buffer associated with that area would be at fault and would need to be replaced. when i see a degrading symptom such as loss of picture on top half or bottom half leading to no picture issue normally you would check heat syncs on y sustain board and if not heating up after a few minutes of being turned on would recommend replacing y main and both y upper and lower y buffer boards as they complete a circuit
You burned out a resistor, capacitor or possibly a printed circuit trace on the solid state printed circuit board. This is going to take some troubleshooting in a high voltage area. If you have no TV repair experience working on high voltage circuits and solid state printed circuit boards, play it safe and have a pro take a look at the set. Good Luck
if you have an owners manual there is a special feature menu yu can go to that will fix how your picture fits on the screen. my tv was doing the same thing except it was the top and bottom until i played around with the remote and stumbled across the menu.
If the picture is closing (top to bottom) and goes back to normal when you hit it you probably have a bad solder connection on IC501 (location number) the vertical deflection IC on a metal heat sink. If you mean outwards as in side to side as it looks in the picture, I don't know specifically where to solder but get a magnifying glass and look for suspected bad solder connections. Look for the word width if it is there. It is good that you a confident in soldering.
