I looked for info for your the Mct-2051 & imagine my surprise that Magnasonic not only doesn't have a manual for your model they don't recognize the model #. Excuse my sarcasm.

If MCT-2051 is not a typo, then the closest I could find was an MCT-2053 & there was no mention of a vertical height adjustment by software control. From my past experience this adjustment can only be performed by a TV tech because you need to access the inside of the TV.

The fact the picture has shrunk this much means that the vertical height driver is failing & eventually you will see nothing but a vertical line, stretched across the screen. Which will mean, that do to Magnasonics' lack of support, you'll be out of luck.

When shopping in the future for a TV try to stay with name brands who will support their products.

By the way, where did you hear that you could adjust the VH utilizing the remote? That could possibly be a function of digital device like a computer monitor, not an analog device like your TV.

The vertical sweep output section of your tV has the fault. Replace all the electrolytic capacitors [5 or 6 of them there] at one time. Height to the picture is more than normal is the fault now.

Cant see the bottom of the tv screen


The vertical height of picture to your TV is more than normal now. When adjust the vertical height, the vertical lenearity also should be adjusted. There is no preset controls for this purpose in new generation televisions. You have to enter its service mode option and make data value adjustments. This is a skilled work, and only one who know better to adjust these values could rectify this fault. Entering in to its service mode, and adjusting data values there, without proper knowledge might make the TV irrepairable and irresposive to commands by both remote control and its front panel keyboard.
So it will be best for you to contact any experienced service technician to do this work.

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.

The vertical height driver that controls the height of your picture has weakened and needs to be adjusted. If you are somewhat handy you can do this yourself. It requires that you gain access to back of the set & remove the cover. Once removed, locate the vertical height & centering adjustments. Sometimes they are located on the main board & other times are located on the color gun driver circuit board that is plugged into the end of the picture tube.

Respond to this post if you need additional assistance. Good luck!

Panasonic tx-29gf10x image not filling screen


Hi there, I have the same model, and I had a simular problem , except my picture shrunk from each side of the screen into concave arc, if you know what I mean. I thought it might be a faulty horozontal output transistor, so I replaced that but did not fix it.
Eventually the picture quality dropped namely it became out of focus and i couldnt refocus it. Then it stopped all together and I heard a ticking sound, which I found was
coming from the line output transformer. A Tech friend told me it was probably a cracked or burnt out HV Capacitor, so checked them all and ofcourse they were all o.k.
So I have come to the conclusion that the Line Output Transformer is faulty, I hope I
am right as they are not cheap.
I think I have the answer to your problem which is a very simple one:
Adjust the "vertical picture height," and it will bring the picture down and fill the bottom of the screen. To do this adjust the VERTICAL CENTER SWITCH by pushing it forward towards the tube , this switch is on Board
TNP 107985 which is located right next to the AV inputs on the back of the TV, the switch is a round white component with a lever on it, and is located on the top of the board, push it to the max forward position, this should help, but might not fix it enough
depending on how much space u have at the bottom. There are no other vertical height adjustments on this Model so it would have to be a faulty component, like a HV
capacitor or burnt out resistor, or not enough HT drive voltage, which suggests dare I
say it--- Line output Transformer, could be wrong though.
Anyway good luck with your problem, hope what I suggested helps.

I have trinitron Sony Television.. i got some problem with my TV, the Vertical screen size gone out of focus... I want to know about remote control Commander Codes from which i can resolve my problem and...


I think what your asking is for an on screen service menu?? That wont fix your problem. It sounds like you have a vertical height problem where the screen doesnt fill the entire screen with the Picture. The adjustments wont go out like that for no reason and all by them selfs. The vertical sweep IC went bad and is going to have to be replaced. This is not a job for the end user. You should call an experienced tech to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
