If you are watching widescreen format movie or tv programming on a non-widescreen tv, that is how it will appear. The widescreen is a wider picture so to show it on a less wide screen, it has to shrink down to fit. and leave blank space top and botton.

If not, sorry.

hmmm. sounds like the screen might be damaged. You might have to get a new one. But before you do that I would try leaving it off for a while maybe a few hours or so and see if that helps.

If this happen on DVD's it is because the DVD is formated to Widescreen, 16x9 size, your TV is 4x3 size. Unless the Menu has an option of Picture size, or Format, to set to Full screen. there is nothing you can do other than be sure to check the DVD for picture format size before purchasing.

Hi there! If picture is smaller top to bottom with blank section on top and bottom then check your aspect ratio settings. If blank at the bottom only the Bottom Y-Drive board may be faulty. If blank at the top The Top Y-Drive may be faulty. If blank on the Left (TOP TO Bottom) then the Right X-Drive Board and on the Right, the Left X-Drive Board. May also be bad connections on the cables or flexible ribbon cables. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

No picture no sound


Did you mean the picture is collapsed only in the middle horizontally(white line appears on the middle part of the screen)?
If that is the case, maybe vertical IC failed or loose connection.

Picture only in middle of screen


Sounds like vertical problems on your circuit board. Unless you have some electronics experience you'd better take it in for repair.

The inside of a tube TV contains high voltages even when off and unplugged.

Good picture in the middle but picture gets worse going to top or bottom.


The convergence IC's need to be replaced. they are the black standup IC's standing up and mounted on a metal heatsink. They are soldered into place and this set is a solid state set and have no user replaceable parts unless you have the training to solder and trouble shoot electronics. You should call a pro in to assist you with this repair.
