Rca 27v41st blue at top of screen, picture moved down

Turn tv on, think there might have been a storm that day, and picture moved down about 2 inches and left a blue bar at the top. So now we only see people from the waist up! Is there a way, like the old tv's, to move the screen back up?

My TX is about 14 year old. The picture alwasy was excellent until we had an exlectrical storm that knocked out the cable box to the TV. With a new cable box the TV works. The picture has excellent color,...

Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

i am not sure these is going to work but give it a try. after useing the tv for a long time you can get a problem with the lineing of the three picture colors may drift away from each other causeing the problem you have, they move because of moveing the tv or the viberation of the tv.  you can to one of two things if you have a remote for the tv go to the menu and look for the convergence adj. setting then you are going to get close to you tv and press the small but the says the same thing now on the screen you are going to see a grid the you can fix youself with the remote just by pressing the up, down,left, rigth buttons and the menu button to change the color, to aline the red line and blue line with the middle line till you get only a white line going up and down  if the doesn't work just unplugg th power cord and what for about 4 hours and then plug it in and turn it on again. if after you do all these if you still have the problem then you either have two choices call to see how much it will cost to repair it or toss it out and get a new one

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

I think you have a fault on the picture frame board. If you can check for this yourself or find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

When you have the back off, look for the flyback (high voltage) transformer. This is the part that has the thick red wire protruding from its top which attaches to the top of the picture tube with a suction cup. On the flyback there are 2 controls, the bottom one is screen and the top one is focus. Turn the bottom control (screen) down (counterclockwise) until the white lines go away and the brightness looks normal. Then turn the top control (focus) until the picture is nice and sharp. If the F connector has been pulled out and the TV has RCA (red, white, yellow) jacks, use those jacks and set the TV to INPUT.

This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.
