I'm not familiar with this model of Sony, but the picture shows a CRT TV. If this is so, your vertical deflection circuit has gone bad (it's nothing to do with the service menu). This can be caused by bad capacitors in the vertical deflection circuit, a bac IC, bad power supply to the IC, bad solder connections, or a combination of any of the above. In this case I would use a scope to test the circuit to see where to start from. You can always do a visual inspection to check for blown or burnt parts and bad solder connections. Other wise you'll have to have a sevice person look at it.

The only suggestion other than contacting Sony is make sure entire bottom of set is on a flat and hard level surface or issues like yours can occur.

My JVC model AV-20F476 has a black-out box that covers most of the bottom half of the screen.

Go into menu and under CLOSED CAPTIONS look to see if TEXT is engaged---if it is set to text 1 turn it off or to text 2,3,4, etc

Text was a feature never really used but it is there, some cable boxes also have this setting/feature.

Let me know if you have questions.

I need a manual for pantech ease cell phone My phone is in advance mode and I need it back in easy mode

You can download a complete manual for free at

You can also find a free online interactive guide that walks you through all the menus and feature of the Pantech Ease P2020. It is at this address:

To go from "Advanced" to "Easy" mode press "Menu" press the end key once and that will take you to the front screen with the wallpaper picture, the time and date display and at the bottom you will see: (from left to right) "Dial", "Contacts", "Inbox" and "Menu". Press the "Menu" icon and this will take you to the first Menu screen. Next you need to quickly swipe your finger across the screen from left to right. This should take you to the last menu screen which should have in icon labeled "Settings" with a picture icon of a couple of gears. Press your finger on that icon picture and you should find yourself at the "settings" screen. The top selection on that screen should be "Phone Mode". Go ahead and press your finger on that selection. Now you should be at the "Phone Mode" screen at it is here that you can choose between "Easy" and "Advanced Mode". After pressing your finger on "Easy Mode" be sure and press "Save at the very bottom of that same screen. This will immediately activate the "Easy" mode.

If you ever need to go back to "Advanced" mode you will find it to be much easier. From the front screen press "Menu", then press "Settings" at the bottom of the next screen. Now press "Phone Mode" at the bottom of the next screen. Finally press "Advanced" on the "Phone Mode" screen and then press"Save at the bottom of that same screen. The will immediately activate the "Advanced" Mode.

I hope this solution is helpful for you.

Tv screen only shows half of the picture ?

I would imagine the bottom or top half is black. My first suspicion, the vertical IC has bad grounds and needs resoldering. Do not short the pins together with excess solder! I would certainly start there for repairs. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

This is a problem with the vertical circuit and can be as simple as poor solder connections within that circuit or defective parts. If you have no experience with soldering or TVs, this should go to a service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $30-$40 range for and IC +/or capacitors. If you'd like to attempt this yourself, please supply the exact make and model so I can post the parts required along with additional instructions. Please note that TVs contain potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged.

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
