I am assuming you are talking about the horizontal, if that is the case and the picture bends in from the sides it is likely there is an electrolytic capacitor dry or leaky, usually easy to recognise, look at the top of all the caps around the horizontal section and see if you can find one with a bulge at the top, replace it, look around where the scan coils are plugged into the main board and toward the horizontal output stage area, there are other things that can cause the same symptom however, I have found that to be the main cause. It is worth looking at the primary power supply stage especially the mains cap ( the largest capacitor there, usually 250v or higher,) remove it,( oh a word of warning- discharge it first, just in case) look at the bottom and look for leaks. if you have a cap tester, it will save time, if you can use and own a oscilloscope, look for ripples in the mains...hope that helps Phil

I HAVE AN OLD THOMSON SKY BOX(NON HD) CONNECTED TO A SONY BRAVIA 32BX320. THERE IS A POOR RECEPTION ON SKY CHANNELS PARTICULARLY NOTICEABLE ON SKY SPORTS FOOTBALL WHERE IMAGES ARE "DRAGGING", "DELAYED


First step...clean out the "old" guy with clean, dry, compressed air to get dust off the capacitors and resistors. The frequencies that the "box" selects are regulated by those components. If this doesn't work you should realize that the electrical values of those components change as they age...and like grandma, can't do the tricks they used to.

On CNN or during football games banner is cut off


It sounds like you're watching wide screen content on a 4:3 tv, so the screen may be zoomed in so that the bars that would normally be on the top and bottom are not showing. Because the picture is zoomed in, images that would be at the top and bottom are off the screen. If you're watching from a home receiver (Uverse, DirecTv, Xfinity, etc.) you need to change the video settings to let the receiver know that your TV's aspect ratio is 4:3 (full screen) and not 16:9 (widescreen). Also, if your channel lineup has the option of watching CNN on a standard definition channel, that would also help because the shape of the image would be what your tv was designed for. If you watch 16:9 programs, you will have to choose letter box mode (bars on top and bottom because the shape of the widescreen image does not match the shape of your tv), pillar box mode (bars on either side) zoomed, or stretched. Stretched will make the shape of everything appear distorted, as it squeezes a widescreen image on the sides to make it narrow enough, so that everyone will have tall and skinny heads like an old Kung Fu movie. The sharpest picture would likely be to watch 16:9 (hi def) content in letterbox mode (bars on top and bottom) so at least you get the proper aspect ratio that the sports were recorded in, and it comes from a sharper source (HD vs SD). I would just deal with the bars, because even with a widescreen tv, there will sometimes be bars because that's how programs are sometimes recorded, for different visual impact or cinematic effect.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
