Re: screen oversize picture

Hello sidley,

The problem you described might be "blooming" This happens due to poor HV (High Voltage) regulation. The problem might be with the High Voltage Transformer and or the Horizontal Output Transistor.
The problem might also be related to the associated circuitry of the two components.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

I have sound but have a black screen with a horizontal line across it

your picture tube may be malfunctioning -- all of the information for the screen is being squished into that horizontal line. If this is the case, you can buy a new picture tube and install it, but that would be the only fix. the only other thing I can think of that might cause this issue would be if you have a large speaker next to your TX. The magnet from a large speaker can distort the television, but it usually gives you a funny green distortion near the magnet without killing your whole screen so it seems unlikely that this is your problem.

Oversized picture problem

Several possibilities, if you use a set top box to get your signal like a cable box or satellite receiver they will have settings that effect picture size. It could be a high voltage problem inside the TV causing an effect called blooming, if that is it you can usually change brightness and or contrast and see the picture get smaller and larger. I don't recall that set having any customer settings that could give that symptom.

Picture is too large for the screen, it seem like we have a 32 in picture on a 28in screen

This might be because the decoder you are using isn't set properly, set it on its MENU to 14.2 Screen, that should sort it out , good luck , the Yeti

TV picture aspect ratio

No. Aspect Ratio is same for UAE and India, and also the broadcast System.

Most Cable TV operators in India broadcast the signal 'slightly oversized, and so the viewer gets the Scrolling at the bottom and top of the screen cut-off.

Bush tv picture

Do you have any large stereo speakers near your tv? They have large magnet in them. It sounds like your screen is magnetized Your set has an automatic de-magnetizing circuit built into it. This circuit could have failed. If you have large speakers near your tv, they need to be moved,but you did say that you're sure that no magnetic field was near your set. Stargazer

Dark picture (HELP)

Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.
