Re: The picture is distorted

If the picture is distorted, you are most likely seeing pin amp errors. This is caused by failing parts in the pin amp sections. It is very common in these sets that some of the electrolytic capacitors in the pin amp and scan amplifier sections gives problems.

An experienced service tech can service this for you.

Horizontal lines across TV screen Pansonic CT 35g25

Check its vertical output section circuit for any component damage or loose soldering terminals. Check the solder terminals of the vertical output IC. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying al little more fresh solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjacent solder terminals.
If this do not help you, replace the vertical output IC. Lose of Vertical Scan is the problem of your TV.

There are about 10-15 small lines on the top of the screen that go horizontally all the way across. These lines distort the picture up there and it is very distracting...any ideas?

The problem is in the vertical section of the TV. Usually one of the electrolytic caps has gone bad. Easy job if youre experienced with board level component replacement.
A shop should charge under $100 to fix.

Needs vertical height adjustment

Is the picture stretched or shrinking and is it distorted or have lines? There are no vertical Height adjustment the circuit is prest and there is likely a problem in the vertical o/p circuit.
The problem is a bad Vertical Output IC (usually mounted on an aluminum heat sink with the part on it labeled LA78?? ) and 1 or 2 bad capacitors. Some times you can even fix the problem by re-soldering the contacts of the IC- To find the IC follow the 4 wires that come from the Yoke (which is a contained coil of wires slipped over the neck of the picture tube(s)) back to the board. 2 of the wires go to the horizontal o/p and 2 to the Vertical o/p the thinner gauge wires are for the vertical.

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.

Picture horizontal problems

There is a sevice menu but it is something a repair man has to adjust. Even to get to that menu is a matter of procedure. If the picture is not always squeezed down then adjustment is not the problem. If it is intermitant it could be a bad solder connection on the main board.Sometimes a bad vertical ic and leakey capacitors can be the problem..
Bottom line is there is not much you can do to correct the problem. You are going to need a service man

Black horizontal lines across bottom 1/3 of screen

This is due to vertical section failure. Change the vertical supply rectifier diode and supply filters. Then check zener diode leakage in pumpup circuit section. Also check any electrolytic capacitors leakage in vertical section. If it is old model tv change vertical height, vertical lenearity presets also. I hope given details useful to you.
