Re: How do I re-align the picture. The screen is several...
Do a reset to this set, and check. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Your question is very vague, but it sounds like the picture on the TV has faded away in the corners and probably looks like a circle in the center of the screen....? If so this has nothing to do with your remote control and everything to do with the TV . I would toss it and invest in a new flat screen. Don't waste money trying to repair TVs - they are now disposable items.
Now a days we have all these awesome cameras and computer programs that can edit the photos into some thing new and cool. Even from my cell phone I can edit a photo on the spot and create a cool image, but did you know that you can do these same effects with a regular old disposable camera?
Making 3D pictures You can easily create 3D images with your disposable cameras. The way that 3d works is by taking two pictures of the same thing from slightly different angles. So if you take two disposable cameras and tape them together one upside down and one right side up. You can use a few of the methods on this site to view your 3D images.
Color filters You can get some really cool color effects when you hold a flash filter up infront of the flash. If you want to get really creative you can use wax paper or other clear colorful wrapping plastics to get some interesting effects.
Damage the lens
Damaging the lens can do some really cool stuff. Take a screw driver or piece of steel wool and scratch the edges of the lens. Doing this will give you an awesome framed look and there are so many options for things to do. Even just flipping the lens inside out will give you a different picture.
Disposable cameras may seem like something from the past, but with these tips you can make some really cool artwork. There is really no limit to the effects that you can get from playing with a disposable camera and best of all they don't require you to learn a new photo editing software!

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007 Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago
I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me. Add a comment

WOW! It works!! The picture on my Magnavox (aka Philips) 37MF321D had shifted to the right. I figured I had a big repair bill coming up soon. But hey! Just used the TV remote as described by "Guest', and re-centered the picture to the left. Wallah! Thanks ""Guest" whomever you are! Reply
Hey, found the problem. Your Convergence IC chip went bad. Buy one at Bluestar International Components (bluestar-online.com) - order part number STK392-010 for 6.99. I've read that there are two in the system and replacing them both at same time is a good idea...so, order 2. Now, if you are handy, it will require you to open the back of the TV and solder out the old chip and replace with new. If not, then you might as well call a TV repair person and have them fix. However, every place I've called works on a minimum fee for "large screen TVs" - the cheapest I could find in Atlanta was $399 minimum service fee. So, I'm going to risk the home sodering job .... it's a 10 year old TV and as good as it's been to me, if I screw it up, I feel I've gotten my money out of it. Good luck with your repair. My parts are on order.
