Question about Sanyo DS27800 27" TV

Picture to wide for tv screen

How can i bring in the sides of the picture? there are no adjustments on the back for vertical or horizontal. when watching some stations i really notice this alot. when playing games it seems that the pic needs to be centered and the sides readjusted. if i pull off the back will there be anything inside to adjust? I havent taken the cover off yet.

i haven't had any problems at all with this tv and the pic is as sharp as it was when new.

TV has a great picture but wont "hold it". Keeps going to a single flat horizontal line across the middle of the screen. Tapping on side of TV used to bring it back but now, nothing. Just a line.

Vertical scan output section circuit fault. Absence of vertical scan causes the single horizontal line on screen. Horizontal scan output section is OK. Contact any service technician to troubleshoot the vertical scan output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.Surf the site with patience.
Horizontal line fault to CRT based TVs are given.

If the picture is too wide, both in vertical and horizontal direction your TV needs power supply adjustments. It is now running at overvoltage, and this condition may poise to another problems soon. Get it repaired soon. Its internal regulated voltage needs to be adjusted. You cannot do it by yourself. Get it repaired by the help of a technician. Don't switch on the TV till its fault have got rectified.

It appears that the image on the screen is zoomed in, but I can't figure out how to "undo" that. Thank you!

If the image on screen is zoomed both in vertical and horizontal direction, your TVs power regulator inside it is faulty. [Overvoltage]. If it is zoomed in vertical direction only, that is only the height of the picture is zoomed, you can adjust it with the remote control button directly on going through menu and get in to the function menu. Normally all TV remote has a special button marked as "Zoom" which on pressing it once the picture get zoomed, again another press the picture gets wide and again an another press picture will come to normal mode. You should select normal mode to retify the problem.

Distorted picture on my 32" Proscan TV...(about 15 years old)

The RCA GE sets have a problem with bad solder connections in the tuner unit which also causes numerous symptoms including poor regulation, no vertical deflection, low audio or dead set.

Pulling in from the sides is either poor regulation or a bad eeprom/solder join issue

Adjust manual picture on TV

Sounds like you may have caps going bad . Adjusting may tend to only stretch the the picture too much . Also when you say horizontal are you saying the top and bottom are closing in ? If yes then your problem is in the vertical section . If side to side then check the horizontal section . Good luck

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
