Question about Sylvania 6420FB 20" TV

1 Answer

The Picture is too big for the tv screen

For some reason the picture of my tv extends beyond the screen. If for example espn were on, I would be unable to see the score at the top of the screen. So I guess it would be about one inch of the picture is lost, most noticably from the top.

I got the TV on Christmas 2006 and I often times leave it on all night, but other than that I don't do anything to that could really be considered damaging. Could leaving it on be what is causing the problem, and if so, can it be fixed without costing me a lot of money?

Re: The Picture is too big for the tv screen

Try your format button... or your wide/size button... they're all a bit different but they all have different screen size capabilities.

hope this helps

Watching espn hd, the picture cuts off on one side. How do I adjust this? The ESPN bug is well within the border in the right hand lower corner, but a chart that comes on perodically during play...

There's a resolution/aspect ratio you can adjust in the picture menu, or straight from the remote. Choose the size you want on ESPN that best fits the picture while watching it.

Picture on Telefunken 72 cm TV expands beyond screen size

Your screen somehow got switched to theatre/cinema mode. There is a setting on the remote that attributes to aspect ratio. Sometimes it is called "ASPECT". Look for it, and press it until your original screen aspect shows.

Picture and text extend beyond screen

Your tv needs to be put into service mode with the original Sony remote control and then set the vertical\horizontal size parameter to the correct values and then burn the new settings to memory
Google " sony tv service mode " and you should find the procedure. Good Luck! Write back if you have problems.

Screen Size is Too Big

There should be a vertical height adjustment control potentiometer near the vertical output IC on the right side of the PC board near the front section of the TV that can be adjusted to shrink the picture vertically. Be careful not to short anything out or getting yourself shocked in the process if you decide to try to adjust it yourself. Good luck. This chassis has also been known to have bad solder connections in that area also, so don't man-handle the printed circuit board roughly.

The picture is round

No my freind, im afraid that you have bad waveshaper capacitors in the vertical sweep circuit in your TV set. This is not an adjustment. you should have a pro assist you with the repair of this set as it is dangerous because of the high voltage inside these sets.
