Vertical size adjustment on my GE 31GT660 set

The vertical size of the image on my 31GT660 is off the bottom of the screen. I can't see scrolling bulletins that come in from news services.

The only thing that wasn't clear was how to get into the service menu. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the front panel of the TV and press POWER then press VOL+.

Do you have a spare computer to hook up to the monitor to see if the monitor's settings are off vertically?

Can you adjust the vertical size of the image of the monitor?

Are the letters squashed down vertically?

If the letters are squashed down vertically, did the setting for pixel size of the screen get adjusted to another size accidentally in the control panel under display settings?

Can you reset the Acer monitor from the menu?

Sony lcd projection tv vertical adjustment KF-50E200A


Try changing the settings for the video formats, widescreen, regular, and all that. There are angle mirrors in the back of the tv that direct the projected image on the screen. The mirrors are positioned such that if, says, a piece of a metal bracket or something falls down inside the projection area, it'll fall right against the projection lens and block the image. Open up the back of the tv and follow the light path from the screen backwards to its source and make sure there's no debris in the projection path.

Control of vertical TV image projected on the screen


You can try looking for 2 things

1. A button on your remote that says either: ARC, Ratio, 16:9, 4:3.... Some remotes have a picture of a square with arrows pointing out towards each corner..... I'm unfamiliar with this set, but it sounds like a widescreen, so give it a go

I cant read the scroll on the bottom of the screen


You don't give a model number or age of the set so I can't be too specific, but there is an adjustment for picture size (it's actually termed "vertical height") in TV sets. Many newer sets make adjustments through a service menu using the remote control, but many sets have a physical adjustment control inside. I can't tell you how it is in your set, but you can take the back off and look at the circuit board. If you see a small round adjustment control (screwdriver slot for turning) marked "vertical size," "height," "vh" or something similar, that's the one. A little turn one way or the other will do the trick.

Now having said all that, it's also possible there may be bad capacitors in the set's vertical circuit. Is this a problem that just started, or that's gotten worse over time? Do you notice distortion at the top of the picture, like a person's head or other round object looking stretched out if it's at the top of the screen? If so, that's usually a sign of capacitor failure. There are a few in the vertical circuit, usually in the range of 1 to 10 mfd at 50 volts, and they commonly go bad with age. Without knowing what model TV you have I can't suggest specific part numbers.

Hope this helps or gives you a start.

Bottom of picture is cut off


Usually when the vertical starts shrinking slowly, it is due to capicators getting out of tolerance in the vertical output section of the chassis. If it can be adjusted out through a service menu, you'll probably need a tech with the right equipment to perform it.

Sansui - BOTTOM OF SCREEN CUT OFF


Your problem is not a vertical alighnment or size adjustment. No, Im sorry to say its the old vertical output IC and /or the small capacitors around the ic and in the vertical circuit. If you dont have the right tools, like a soldering iron a multimeter know how to read a schematic diagram, then you should seek out a repair person to assist you in this repair.
