Picture is Tilted

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!

Re: Picture is Tilted

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!

Problem with JVC CRT TV (slim) with screen to have red color at the lower left (facing the TV) corner and a green color on the upper right corner of the screen. Sometimes while watching TV shows, the upper...

There is strong magnetic field around the TV. This may be due to the tower speakers or any portable radio kept close by.

Re orient the TV try switching OFF / ON at the intervals of 30 minutes. The built in auto de-gauser will correct the problem. In cable TV program if the picture is OK, nothing wrong in the TV.

Check with a different CD.

Tilted picture

You must be placing the TV near something Magnetic, Speakers, etc. This would account for the green in the corners. The tilted picture is most likely the yoke in the set has moved during rough handling. The first issue can be fixed with a degausssing coil, the second requires a technician to manually realign the yoke assebly and perform a convergence on the set.

Screen is cutting off the sides

That is an ITC008 chassis and the problem you're referring to is called a breathing picture. One fault I am aware of in this chassis/model is the connector Bl103. I have seen a couple where the connector failed and had to be replaced. Could open it up and locate the conntector and see if it's vibration sensitive.

The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.
