Can't get into service mode.

I've tried all the ways to get into service mode on this TV and can't get there. Am having a problem with the horizontal width. Have tried holding the menu button and then power, vol +. Have tried holding the chan - and vol - and it will not go into service mode. Do you have any other way to get into it on this TV.

Which service manual setting controls horizontal size?

You're discussing about the factory mode adjustments. The horizontal width adjustments will not be there. You have to adjust it by replacing certain capacitors at the horizontal output stage.

My tv has a sound and no picture

Its horizontal output section circuit should be troubleshooted. Contact any experienced service technician. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

I just bought a used Loewe TV model number ACO938PB. I can;t get the picture to fill the screen. I've changed the settings inside the TV and the 6X9 format works best, but there are still bars of black...

I had a similar problem, and I fixed it with my new Sony flat screen by going into the zoom mode and then menu on the tv remote. You can then access settings such as horizontal and vertical and change them so that your screen can adjust. The only way you can access those settings is in zoom mode.

Just got this tv from friend. has no remote. screen is black. sound is good. when you push menu button, white line goes across horizontally the screen.

The horizontal line indicates the vertical deflection circuit is not working. Either the set is stuck in service mode for adjusting color (turns off vertical), or the deflection circuit has failed.

Some RCA TV sets have a "Service" switch in the back, down near the bottom of the set. Most of the newer sets use a combination of remote control and front panel buttons to get into service mode, and that can be turned off by unplugging the set and plugging it back in. Try looking for the mechanically operated service switch in the back first.

Overscan is off a bit

Does's the set have a repair history? If it was previously serviced , the capacitor which is connected between the emitter and the collector of the horizontal output transistor transistor might have been changed with the wrong value, which would cause and overscan situation.The service menu for this set is even hard for technicians to use. It' my opinion if the service manual will not correct the horizontal width, the wrong capacitor was probably installed. Scrivitron (also these sets are known for the forementioned capacitor to short , flame or open.
