TV has multiple images and flickers, images are not centered and different sizes? What is wrong?
Subject: Zenith B31A24Z 32'' TV
So it was made in 2000 and has been fine for the most part. Currently when you turn it on, the image will be flickering three overlapping images. Then it will "warm" up and start acting normal. But change it to another channel and it does that flicker thing again. It's now to the point will it will never go normal or rarely does,
Does anyone know how to fix this or know what the problem could be/cost?

Re: TV has multiple images and flickers, images are not...
Multiple image is usually a result of transmission problem. The signal from your local station gets transmitted two ways, by tower and cable. If the tv receives them both at seperate times it will create an overlap or shadow effect. I would try a small power booster on it, if not a service man may have to adjust the internal circuits.

Usually there will be a button your remote that you can press and it will go through the different screen sizes like 16:9 and Widescreen and so on. Usually the best one to use is called Just Scan. You can download the instruction manual for that tv here. Just rate the tv first and then you should be abe to click the download button. Hope that helps
It sounds like you have the picture"ratio" set or adjusted wrong, find the button on your remote labeled "ratio","format","wide" any of those,then just press the button multiple times until you get the full picture that you are looking for. If you have digital cable or satellite those receivers also have picture format adjustments in their menu system that need to be set for your type of TV screen(wide 16:9 or standard 4:3). If you need help, your cable company or satellite provider can assist you with info. Good Luck ! P.S. don't forget to refer to your owners manuals.
The issue your having is aspect ratio. Some programs and commercials are broadcasting in a higher resolution so some fill the screen and some have black bars top and bottom. I suggest searching "aspect ratio for video". It would take me all night to type it out. But you need to know how the different resolutions change the size of your image. Also in the TV's menu you should see an aspect ratio option. Try the different settings to see if you can find the best.
