Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
My Phillips will not display the whole screen. It cuts off part of the top, bottom and sides of the picture. I've tried readjusting the screen input from the remote but it doesn't do anything to fix the problem.
If it is a picture tube type TV not a plasma or lcd try degausing the picture tube. I think Radio Shack carries degausers or find the plans for one on the net.

I had the same problem. The TV has vertical compression technology that maximizes resolution from widescreens sources (HDMI). You have to set the dvd player or xbox to the 16:9 setting even though you have a 4:3 tv.

These two problems may not be related; the first is either a reaction of an overvoltage protection circuit that monitors the ~ 25kv supplied to the CRT or the sign of a decaying component, most likely an electroytic capacitor.
Sometimes, this component can be seen to be failing by a bulge on the top (or end, if horizontal) of the package or the appearance of a crusty desposit around the seal.
The second problem is probably coming from a failed or fractured solder joint, often called a 'cold' solder joint.
These quite often respond to mechanical jarring or disturbance of the board on which it occurs.
Looking for these without signal tracing capabilities can be a lifetime task.
Labor charges in both cases (if you still have a shop around) could be a significant amount.

Hello This is an indication that your vertical output stage is beginning to malfunction. It could be the vertical output IC or the vertical coupling capacitor. I would suggest using the schematic and an oscilloscope to determine if the signal is correct. You may have to replace the IC or the capacitor.
I hope this helps,

Have yourself a VCR that has a Scart input, or Video in, and feed the DVD in there. Connect your TV to the VCR, and tune it in to the video channel, using aerial lead and tuner.
When you flick VCR to AV1 (or similar) you should see the DVD appear on the TV Video Channel :)
