Question about NetTV DTV34XF3 34" TV

Full picture not in screen

The full picture is not fitting in the screen and will cut off words and images from screen.  At times will it appears that the tv is trying to fit it all in the screen and fluxes and you can see the picture expanding and contracting.  Any way to fix?

We cannot get the picture to fill the whole screen on the sides. The manual has no numbers to contact and the remote doesn't match the picture in the manual.

Re: full picture not in screen

Sounds as though you have a leaking Capacitor in the horizontal section. The problem capacitor is likey to be orage in color and rated at 2kv or higher. Located next to the High Voltage transformer ( Flyback transformer ). Be very cautious if you are changing this, or any part yourself as the picture tube can charge high voltage ( up to 35,000 volts ) for a long period of time. Always discharge the picture tube first before servicing a set.
Replace the capacitor with a like part with the same or higher voltage rating and the same capacitance number ( mfd, pfc,or such ) as listed on the side of the part.
Good Luck

My zenith sentry tv has a double image on the words that come on screen. The people are clear but all wording has double images

Double images are technically called Ghosts, occures due to the setting and direction on the antena. You have to reorient your antena, in such a way that Ghosts disappeares from your screen. The reson for this fault is not with the TV, as it gets a direct transmission signal, and a reflected signal of the same, reflected from near or far objects, like tall buldings, hills and so on. The signals, the orginal and the reflected, will be processed by the TVs internal ciiruit, and the first will appear as strong picture, followed by the second, a weak picture, will be seemed as an image of the first one, just on the right side [view point] of your TV.
You just adjust the position and height of your antena, looking the picture, where there is minimum Ghost level is. No other repair should be done to your TV, as it is perfect, and you just give it only direct signal path. OK.

Picture image does not look full when showing people

There is a service menu adjustment. I have seen several of these sets with bad components in the horizontal width control circuit. maybe your other set has a width problem. put both on the same channel. like cnn with the ticker on the bottom. what is the difference in size?
the width adj. procedure is: with the set off. use the remote, enter. MENU>5>VOL+>POWER . the set will come on in the service mode. then with the menu adj. buttons you can step threw the service menu to H.WIDTH adj. until full picture. also VERT. HEIGHT. when you are done adjusting make sure you press the mute button and watch the word WRITE flash from green to red or you won't save your adjustments.

Has the image been "zoomed" into?  This is usually the result of a image that has been adjusted to fill the screen.  This is not the same as adjusting the aspect ratio as that would still show the entire image even if distorted.  When the image is cropped or is missing information, a zoom feature is usually the culprit.
If this isn't the problem, you maybe able to adjust the TV's horizontal/vertical placement through the TV's onscreen menu but only if it provides that option.  Do you see other channels that appear to fit properly?  I have seen certain channels not fit correctly while others do and this is due to the signal, not your TV.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

Image burning on my screen

This is called BURN IN. BURN IN usually occurs when any one picture remains on the screen for an excessive amount of time. To my knowledge, there is no way to remove these annoying "brandings," however, they can easily be avoided by changing the channel on the TV, or not leaving the TV powered on continuously (especially on just one channel).
