Sound like it is in a expanded format. These sets have a couple of mode it can run in one is called 9X16 expand. this makes the pix to big, but you probably need the original remote with the format button on it, luckily these are cheap and be had at www.vancebaldwin.com

Overscan????


Dear customer,
            You can fix it by right-clicking on the nvidia icon in your system tray, going to "TV Out" and then in there is a box under "Screen Resolution" (I think that's what it says) where you can click to zoom in or out, or move the screen up,down,and to the sides.
           Or else your problem is  with the ratio of the signal, make sure the cable box is set to match your tv style (4x3 or 16x9)and the video output is set correctly (480p, 720p, 1080I) the set will have MORE format options on analog channels (480I) than on HD channels as the HD signal also controls the format shown by the set and also change the aspect ratio to fit your screen.. that'll solve your problem..

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen


Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

Picture not fitting on screen


Unfortunately, this is an internal adjustment that can not be done by you without voiding the warranty. Call the store and request warranty service. You should not have to pay to get this resolved.

Overscan is off a bit


Does's the set have a repair history? If it was previously serviced , the capacitor which is connected between the emitter and the collector of the horizontal output transistor transistor might have been changed with the wrong value, which would cause and overscan situation.The service menu for this set is even hard for technicians to use. It' my opinion if the service manual will not correct the horizontal width, the wrong capacitor was probably installed. Scrivitron (also these sets are known for the forementioned capacitor to short , flame or open.

Picture slants right to left


Hope you have fixed this problem by now, if that tv is unserviced, I mean if nobody has ever opened it, it could be a problem with the positioning of your tv, just tilt the tv in different positions and find out the position in which it will show the right fit. If it is serviced, especially yoke is changed, this is rare, it could be because the position of yoke is not aligned properly.

Can't see scrolling text or sport scores


Here's how to fix it - I have a PF 2425, and it's driven me absolutely up the wall. Videogames are useless because you can't even see the crucial gauges etc. Likewise, subtitles and credits in films are cut off. it's ridiculous, especially considering how easy it is to fix (if you know how).

1. Decrease volume to 0.
2. Press MUTE so the tv says "MUTE" onscreen.
3. Hold MUTE on the REMOTE and MENU on the TV simultaneously until the service menu appears.

It's important not to screw around here too much. Use your arrows on the remote to navigate, the first option likely will say "MENU.0" or something like that. Use that to flip through the pages. What you're looking for are values like V Zoom, V Scroll, etc. Same goes with the H values. Toy with these a little and you'll be able to get the tv scanning perfectly.

I can confirm this worked for me! So good luck.

Sansui - BOTTOM OF SCREEN CUT OFF


Your problem is not a vertical alighnment or size adjustment. No, Im sorry to say its the old vertical output IC and /or the small capacitors around the ic and in the vertical circuit. If you dont have the right tools, like a soldering iron a multimeter know how to read a schematic diagram, then you should seek out a repair person to assist you in this repair.
