As it has fallen on the floor

due to that its deflection coil position might  have  changed a little.

due to that its left corner has gone down.


deflection coil has convergence magnet on it so due to that there is change in color also.


please call tech to re position of deflection coil every thing will be fine as it was.

as per buying another it is up to you.

hope this will help.

My Vizio TV has dark spot top left corner

Hi Brandon,
I am afraid that the dark spot in the screen is not repairable. Manage as long as you can or go for a new tv.

How can I adjust an upright freezer door ?

Hello there,
It is always the feet and their adjustment and floor must be level
From the user guide it says

;The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on
a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
a fully loaded freezer.
NOTE:It is VERY MPORTANT for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.
To level Upright Models:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, half a bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. ;

Cant get the machine to balance service guy comes out with my dad at my house who is 70 years old and service guy tells him nothing is wrong . i leveled it out and it shakes the house and says uneven load...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW FRance @ 16:49 Sat afternoon- nothing on TV!

As the service guy says there is nothing wrong with the machine it must be that it is STILL not absolutely balanced.
Really rock it from each corner. If it rocks, even a little, from the right hand front corner then it is the foot underneath that corner which need to be adjusted downwards until it is TIGHT onto the floor then locked by the locking nut so that it cannot vibrate loose. If not this corner then the left hand side need adjusting.
The feet DO need to be very firmly on the floor- honest!

Best of luck,

John C

While on rinse cycle. the machine make a loud of noise, the whole machine shake alot. i replace all the 3 spring, and one spring on the back. and notice there is 2 pin that drop. so i re scure the pin. but...

I had the same problem. It was a combination of unbalanced loads and the machine was not level. I used a torpedo level I bought at Lowes to check the level of the machine. First, standing in front of the machine, put the level on the front edge of the machine top. Measure left to right and using a wrench adjust the screw feet on the bottom front of the machine until you reach level. Then standing in front of the machine, grab the two back corners of the machine console body (do not use the control panel for this as you will break it loose from the body). pulling up and forward, rotate the machine so that the back feet are lifted off the floor, while the front feet are still making contact with the floor. This allows the back feet to automatically level the machine. Using the level check from front to back on the left and right top of the machine body to ensure level is reached. Repeat the entire process until you reach an acceptable level condition on the washer. Note: All level measurements must be made on a flat surface of the machine.
