Question about Emerson EWF2004 20" TV
I have had this TV for a long time, but was using it mainly for Cable only. Now that I am playing games on it, I notice that the picture is tilted slightly to the left. I have been trying to figure out how to fix it myself to no avail. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
The quickest correct fix for this problem is to open the TV, turn it on and display something on it. Then, on the the neck of the tube (where the screen just thins out) you'll see a an assembly of coils and odd disk-shaped objects. These are really magnets - the coil being the scanning or deflection electro-magnets and the disks being low-strength magnets. It is likely that with age the positioning (called alignment) of these have changed slightly to giving rise to the symptons you describe. Taking care for shock (keep your left hand in your back trouser pocket) try rotating this coil array while observing the picture, which should rotate accordingly (keeping a large mirror in front of the TV would help much). Once you are satisfied with the picture, you can use a glue-gun or even sellotape to secure the assembly from drifting again. Then switch off your TV, put the cover back and ENJOY your handiwork!
