It depends, sometimes this problem is caused by a capacitor around the crt socket or around the flyback and horizontal out.
or sometimes the signal reciever section..

    oh yeahh!!! did you adjust a variable resistor at the flyback or at the crt socket..? I just remember it... try it this way. but I'll advice you to do it with a pro. flyback is a highly voltage area same as the crt socket..

Imagerunner 2270 - When we make copies it is shifting the print down about a 1/4 inch. I think it is a calibration issue but not sure how to correct it.

Try making a copy directly on the glass with the top down. If this isn't correct then you have to go into service mode. Be careful of what things you highlight in this area because there could be problems after. Press the additional function key and then press the " 2 & 8 " keys at the same time, then the additional function key. If it doesn't work the first time press the reset key a couple of the times and start over. You should see something like copier, feeder, or fax depending on what configuration you have. Press COPIER, ADJUST ( across the top ), then ADJ-XY, ADJ-X ( this adjusts the image top to bottom ). ADJ-Y-DF adjusts the reading start position from the Document Feeder. Good luck.

Some channels on my tv are dark and tinted orange, I used the menu button to display the menue and scrolled down to picture but I did not know how to select picture.

Adjust colour control to zero, and check for a pure black/white picture. Adjust contrast and brightness control to minimum and check whether the picture goes completly off or a slight picture prevails. If the picture goes out when you turn down brightness control to 1/3 position, that is about 20 points, your TVs screen voltage is very low, and it can be adjustable. If the picture does not go out and more brightness prevails, screen voltage is high. If the screen voltage is high, there will be some fine lines across the screen at about an inch apart; on the whole screen from top to bottom.
Screen voltage adjustment is critical for the clarity of the picture. If it is low, no proper colour will be dispayed. If it is high, it is harmful to both picture tube and your eyes.
Never try to adjust it without proper knowledge about it. The screen control can be located alongwith the LOT [Line Output Transformer], of your tv. There will have two adjustable controls there, one is for Focus, and the other is for Screen. Both are interactive, that is adjusting one will effect an other.
